1. Argyle makes me think "guy," so I decided to make a page about my husband. I wanted to make a simple page highlighting one photo and the story behind it, so I used the argyle below the photos as an embellishment.
2. I made the patterned paper argyles square for easier cutting, 1x1 inch each. I lay them point to point and glued them down. Then I lightly drew horizontal lines above and below the squares, the drew the cross lines lightly too, meeting up in between each square. I punched holes on the cross lines 1/4 inch apart, then erased all pencil lines. I stitched by hand with red DMC.
3. There was red in the border sticker to the right and red in the argyle, so I added an embellishment cluster to complete the visual triangle.

I stuck to the sketch completely on this one. I printed out a diamond to use as a template (found here: http://www.clipartguide.com/_small/0808-0710-1516-0725.jpg). I printed it and then traced it onto my pattern paper and cut it out. I then placed the cut-out diamond in between my pieces of pattern paper, piercing along the edges of the diamond shape to allow for stitching. To add a final touch, I used glue dots to adhere some bling.
