I was very brave and used the sewing machine on paper! I’m thrilled with these 2 layouts. To sew the circle and heart shapes, I cut both from acetate. I determined where I wanted it on the layout and then I carefully held it in place and used it as a guide to sew around it multiple times. You could do this with any simple shape. FYI if you plan to sew on a layout, don’t sew through the double sided tape it gets the needle sticky.
