Todays post shows the tutorials I have made for My Creative Scrapbook using the November main kit.
I guess many of you have some old stitching templates lying around- I know I do - I have had this once since 2008..... and with stitching being trendy again - why not pull them out.
You need the template, some floss or embroidery thread (4 of 6 threads), a sharp thing to make the holes and something soft under the paper where you make the hole - I used some old foam.
First you place the template where you want to be and start making holes.
With such a dark paper it's not very easy to find the holes so put the template over several times to find the holes and start stitching.
Here is the finished stitches.
Thought I would also show you the background made with a template and gold paint.
Have fun with leaves - for the next layout I want to show you to have some fun with dies with leaves.
First you cut out lots of leaves in different sizes
Then you bend the edges a little
Then you pile them all together and staple them to the cardstock
Next thing is to cut out pieces of the cardstock to stick in between the leaves.
A few closeups to show you to put stickers and chipboard in between too.
Here are my last two projects
