Basic Grey - Susan Weinroth "Scraplift This" Challenge

So, it's no secret I LOVE Basic Grey. And it's no secret that I am a HUGE fan of Susan Weinroth's. So, when I saw she was this month's guest designer at Basic Grey, I was super excited. Susan made an amazing layout for a "Scraplift This" challenge. You can view the challenge and Susan's layout here. So, I used this layout as the inspiration for the following two-page spread. First off, I dug deep into my Basic Grey stash consisting of 17 different collections right now and pulled out some old Blitzen (which is still my favorite Christmas line of all time). I also included some Basic Grey alphas, glazed brads and buttons. Instead of repeating hearts in various patterns, I used stars. Since I don't have a sewing machine, I hand-stitched on each star to add an element of texture. I dotted most of the stars with a button as Susan did to her hearts. I included a patterned paper border at the bottom as Susan did and added a journaling block and title. And here is my result!
