It's Linky Party Day with Crafty Secrets today! I look forward to it every month.. but especially this month, as I know the Design Team girls have some great things planned to share with everyone. Each of us has a little something different that we are going to be sharing with you, as far as a way we've used a particular Crafty Secrets product.
I chose to tell you about how I used one of the digital stamps (Poppy digital stamp) to create a embroidery pattern, .... and then how I created a very handmade looking album album with the fabric embroidered piece for the cover.
Time to go ahead and put it in your printer and hit "print".
I LOVE embroidering! I used to do it so much ..but have just gotten away from it since I've been caught up in paper crafting. I love that it's so relaxing, and that I can sit down stairs with Dan and watch ( listen too) TV with him , while I'm working on it. I have to remind myself, to just slow down and enjoy the process. It's doesn't have more instant gratification I get most of the time when paper crafting. So I started......
and I stitched... and I stitched...
and I stitched some more. And finally my pretty little Poppy was finished. Now to create my album cover.
I decided I wanted to use one of the gorgeous paper patterns from the new"Sew Creative" CD, and print it on another piece of canvas to complete my album cover.
So .. that's exactly what I did. lol
I use Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive Sheets for adhering large pieces like this, it works great for projects like this.
Then find a corner and slowly pull the paper up , leaving the adhesive behind on the album front.
Now your ready to lay your stitched fabric piece down and adhere it to the cover.....
Well, I hope this gives more inspiration for another idea of a way to use the digital stamps from Crafty Secrets.
Before I forget and send you on to the other girls I also wanted to tell you about the BIG SALE Crafty Secrets has going on right now until Wed May 8/13 on all their regular and digital product in the Crafty Vintage Girl online store
