This first project is a different take on traditional cross stitch. I really liked the way the subtle lines came out with the primitive pencil grid. To make it easy, I just drew the pattern directly onto my fabric. Depending on the size of grid, you can make the pattern larger or smaller.
You could just print out the image or use the running stitch idea on any silhouette. I took the template image, printed it onto fabric and followed the stitches with dark thread. Try using different color threads, or inks. Try printing the single image larger or making several small crows.
For this project I used a new star fold I learned and used my DIY Golden Ticket patina and mica glitter for shine. I also use my new IOD Baubles mould and some quick-setting resin. You can take pieces of this project tutorial and customize it. Make stars, paint and glitter, use resin in the new Baubles mould… Take the concepts and use your imagination, or do the exact same project!
Whatever you do- have fun!

I took some old vintage images I had and turned them into this fun project page. Watch the video for some fun ideas on what to do with your free printouts. What other ideas can you come up with? Attach to goodie bags, decorate for October, make cards, use at your upcoming fall party…
Look at these fun new Roycycled Treasures stencils! The surprises under the cloches may not be hidden, but they are fun!
You can use each stencil separately or together. The real fun is deciding what to use with the stencils!
I used some of my favorite Royce paper, and some IOD transfers and scraps. You can use whatever you have- family photos, scraps, printouts, three dimensional items and more!
These are super fun and easy buntings! You can also use them as a garland or other decoration. Use the same images for place settings, napkins, invitations, food labels and more for a matching table!
Remove Element after it begins to set, but BEFORE it completely dries. Let it set out to dry completely before antiquing or embellishing.
I am having fun with this new IOD cozy stamp! It is a Christmas release, but it has SO MANY year-round uses! Not only is this stamp fun, but also the IOD transfers with birds.
If this project looks a little familiar, that is because I did a similar project in the past before IOD released this stamp set. The stamp adds a little more detail to the cups and makes it so much easier to make! The transfers also add the right size birds with vibrant colors and detail.
Some fun and cozy ideas and projects using the new IOD Christmas line for 2022!
