Fantabulous Friday #24


I love doing stitching on layouts! I do have some embroidery templates, but it is much nicer to be able to make your own custom template.

Cut a shape out with your Cricut, and trim around the negative space of your cut.

Next, use a needle and punch holes on your cardstock using your new template! Hint- if you have some foam, stick it under your cardstock, it will be much easier to punch through.


I'll admit, stitching is the time consuming part. I love to stitch while watching a favorite show, or just rocking out to some tunes at night :) Once it is completely stitched, cut around your shape leaving a small edge. I then like to ink it for some definition.
Happy stitching!
