It's all about stitching! Well, not only - lots of other very interesting elements going on too. Here's my original layout, which I lifted from the very talented Crafty Stash on UK Scrappers.
Here's a few tips on the layout - Promarkers/Copic Markers are very useful for changing colours of chipboard letters if you want to customise them. The colour changes very easily over a glossy surface. Applying a layer of Glossy Accents over the top gives them a lovely lush, and professional finish.
The original layout had a pleated circle. I made it a bit easier by cutting the circle up into smaller segments and then inking around each piece.
I freehanded the curve on both stitched edges and inked each part to add definition before compiling the layout. What made the stitching uniform in distance was the use of a Bazzill stitching template - very useful! Shaped scissors are indispensible for little fine details like the serrated edges on the circles on top of the stitching.
The papers I used were bits of leftovers from the Fancy Pants "Delight" range, and We R Memory Keepers "White Out". Why don't you have a go and potentially win a prize?
