Cross Stitch projects

Here's my newest projects that I've most recently completed. I'll take pictures of the rest tomorrow. I also managed to make a bookmark for my sister, non stitchy though, see the top pic.


So i thought id have a go at making my own papers, anyway, here's the first one. If you want it, take it, just save to your pc and use. If you do take it please comment, that's all I ask.

DIY Digi Stamps

So with lack of craft funds I decided to resize colouring book pages in a bid to make some digi stamps. I haven't tried them yet, but thought I'd post them here for anyone to use, if they can be used anyway.

New Card Again

Okay, so I'm giving a go at following a sketch , and I'm entering a Sketch Saturday. My first time to do anything like this, so here goes.

Sorry the pictures aren't the best quality, but I only have the camera on my phone.

So these are made using the Magnolia Stamp - Alva with a flower, and watercoloured, papers are from a papermania pad, and the rest is from my stash.

Hope I've done this right.

New Cards

So I decided to give stamping a go, and here's my first few cards made with my new stamps :)

This first one is made using a Tilda stamp, and coloured in with ordinary pencils just to practice. I'm still new to making cards though
, so not as great as some that I've seen.

This one has been watercoloured, I've not put it onto a card yet though.

This one has been made using a free stamp from this month's papercraft inspirations magazine. I've just coloured it in using regular pencils for now to practice.
