I think that everyone has some Stampede pictures stashed somewhere in their piles of photo's. What better way to showcase them than on this super cute western layout. This used a combination of some paper packs and cardstock without overpowering the layout. I also always enjoy using Kraft paper for the base pages, it give a rustic feel to the layout. I used the Old West Cricut cartridge for the title Saddle Up and the pocket handkerchief. The stitched detailing on the pocket was done by using a white gel pen and a couple of silver brads and a folded over piece of washi tape. The handkerchief is tucked inside the pocket to be used as hidden journaling and just slides out to reveal the tale. To complete the layout, I stamped a lace image, added a washi tape pennant and a wooden star in the bottom right, I then used a blue pen and drew on stitches around the patterned paper and the handkerchief to tie everything together.
