When life gives you time, make giant tapestries! We’ve been home now for a few months due to COVID social distancing, so I figured it was a great time to start a cross stitch project the size of a 12-year-old. 🙂
I made this amazing Alice in Wonderland silhouette cross stitch pattern the other day and I wanted it BIG. It’s 32×45.29 inches, on a 14 count fabric! It only uses one color though, so it shouldn’t be too bad, right? …….. Right? I’m going to use 3 strands of black DMC 310 throughout so it’s a thicker weave.
Here’s a video I made of me putting the 36 page chart together:
Here’s a picture of my 3-year-old next to the pieced together pattern. It’s 100% bananas.
It all begins with one stitch:
Here’s a picture of me stitching on a 59 inch Aida cloth. It definitely takes a little bit to get used to:
Week one done, and feeling good:
I’m excited about the process and I hope you’ll join me on my journey! Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebookfor weekly photo updates, and let me know what you think of this project! Here’s a link to the chart, if you’d like to stitch it along with me, too!
Thanks so much for crafting with me, and happy stitching! xoxo
This is my time using Ciao Bella, and I am completely in love! The illustrations are fabulous, and the paper collections include lots of great ephemeral elements to fussy cut out.
In the video below, I’ll do a flip through of The Muse collection, and make this darling “Moments” scrapbook page.
I also dyed my own seam binding to match! My handmade seam binding, as well as premade scrapbook layouts (including this one!) can be found in my eBay shop.
Hope you enjoyed this beautiful layout, and thank you so much for crafting with me!
This week was all about the 49 and Market Old School Collection. I mean ALL ABOUT IT.
I used the entire collection in the past couple days, and it made me so happy in my heart.
I’ve never seen a paper collection with ephemera and die-cuts like these – books, pen and ink, and 3D notebook die-cuts!
Fun, right?! For the layout above, I cut around the boarder of one page and popped it up with cardboard to create a kind of shadowbox effect. The paper underneath is from Tim Holtz.
Thanks for taking this tour with me today! Keep in touch, and happy crafting! xoxo
Hi friends! We’re all quarantined in this together, so I thought I’d do my part by making a fun freebie x-stitch pattern for you. Hope this serves as an enjoyable distraction. Click the link below for the PDF pattern.

I love using vintage looking accents in my cards and scrapbook pages.
I’ve learned several ways to dye my ribbons and trims, using various ink and paint brands and am happy to share this trick with you!
Here are some examples of cards I’ve made using my hand dyed seam binding:

When I found this Bo Bunny collection that had my name as the collection title, I just had to pick it up! I love the French country look of this yellow and blue paper pad:
I used lots of yellow/blue/white flowers from 49 and Market. I love their flowers, since many of them come with greenery as well.
I love working with collection pads when making scrapbook layouts and cards because I know I’ll have lots of coordinating papers to choose from, making craft time super efficient! 🙂
I have these, along with lots of other premade scrapbook pages, available in my eBay shop.
Please let me know if there are other collections or products you’d like to see highlighted in future blog posts. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Watercolor and stencil backgrounds are my new favorite way to design scrapbook layouts. I love the versatility, and the fact that every time turns out a little bit different.
This 12×12 page was made using several shades of the Lindy’s Gang Magical Shakers:
I also added some stencil and stamping ink for the polka dots.
This was such a fun page to make. I love experimenting with color and balance in the collage. Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you were inspired today! xoxo
My sister gave me a package of foil transfer from Prima Marketing, and it’s been in my drawer for about…a year. I just didn’t know what it was or how to use it.
Cut to – I had a custom request for some Pink Floyd scrapbook pages. I knew I would have to make my own background papers for something like this, and -BAM!- the package of foil was opened.
I have to say, it’s pretty magical. And SUUUUUUUUUUUUPER easy to use.
For my layouts, I decided to use spray adhesive and stencils. I sprayed the adhesive through the stencil onto my card stock and when it was *almost* dry, stuck the foil paper (shiny side up) onto it (I also gave it a hardy rub, just in case) and… instant glam!
I have used several packs since. They work so well on black paper, and I can’t seem to get such magnificent color and shine with any other embellishment. You can purchase some here, if you want to give it a go. Prima Marketing carries them in several shades, but this is the package I used for these pages.
Try ’em out, and let me know how they worked! I would love to see pictures of your finished projects! Happy crafting, and shine on!
