Hiking with the Dogs

Skill Level: Beginner

Making a scrapbook page of a fun hike with your beloved pets is a perfect way to relive the memory over and over. The touch of metallic thread adds a subtle sparkle that brings color and texture to the page, showcasing your favorite pictures. This page features our Iron-on thread plus a little stitching with our basic metallic thread. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see the completed design.

Materials Needed:

  • photos
  • Forest Green Cardstock, Medium Green & White Paper
  • Waterfall paper, #7024 from Far & Away Scrapbooks
  • 2" Square Punch
  • needle
  • silver eyelet
  • Kreinik Iron-On Thread: 1/8" Ribbon 6020 Silver
  • Kreinik Tapestry #12 Braid  008 Green Kreinik Teflon press cloth
  • Mini iron or household iron


1. Turn on your iron to the highest setting and let it heat thoroughly.

2. Cut out all pieces. Cut a 3" strip of Forest Green Cardstock that is as tall as your page. Punch three squares out of the strip, towards the top (see picture for reference.) Set aside the punched squares. Cut three smaller squares of Medium Green Paper. Cut one small heart shape from your White Paper. Trim your photos to the desired size.

3. Attach your heart to the bottom of your Forest Green Cardstock strip. Set your eyelet in the center of the heart. Use your needle to poke 12 holes around the heart, in a larger heart shape. Sew your heart using the 008 Green braid, and secure the ends in the back.

3. Position all your pieces on the Waterfall background and attach them. Begin embellishing your page with the Silver Iron-On thread. Outline each square opening on your Forest Green Cardstock. Then carefully outline your photos with the iron-on thread.
