Hey there everyone, it’s Kathleen here with you again and today I have a layout to share that I made with the gorgeous new Lindsey kit. Have you checked it out yet? If not, you really should, it’s filled with so many super cute products and I love how the colors are perfect for Valentine’s Day, yet they work for anything else, too!
I started my layout with white cardstock for my background and coated it with a layer of clear gesso because I knew I wanted to add some color to it. I used some of my ink sprays in yellow, pink and aqua and added a little bit of each color in a horizontal line.
When it was dry, I used my sewing machine and thread in each of the three colors to add machine stitching over the watercolored areas in the coordinating colors. I love how this adds subtle texture to the background and another pop of color without becoming too busy.
Because I also wanted to incorporate some black and white pattern, I trimmed the white cardstock down to roughly 11.25x11.25“ and then used the black and white heart pattern to “frame“ it. The rest of the layout is equally simple. I layered a few bits of patterned paper and a journaling card behind my photo to repeat the colors I already got going on and then also added some embellishments here and there.
I think my favorite embellishment in the whole Lindsey kit are the foam and cardstock stickers (or maybe the cute colorful chipboard alpha stickers that I used for my title?). I used two of the foam and cardstock stickers on my layout and then also scattered some of the epoxy heart stickers around.
Finally, I used the tiny heart stamp from the Lindsey stamp set and stamped it in the three main colors on or around the stitched area.

Beautiful layout. The stitching also reminds me of a voice recording images. (the zig zags) pretty cool.
