31  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Stenciling On A CD on: January 11, 2006 09:54:04 PM
Has anyone ever stenciled directly onto a CD rather than making a label for it or writing on it with a sharpie? I have a mix project due soon and have the covers/liner notes down but thought about doing a stencil also for the actual CD. Suggestions are greatly appreciated!
32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Paper Embroidery? on: January 05, 2006 09:07:56 AM
I have a CD trade project due at the end of the month, and was thinking about stitching something simple for the covers. Any thoughts/ideas/experiences that might help? I guess I'd have to use cardstock or something, but should I use any certain type of needle/floss? Or maybe some tutorals on here come to mind? Materials/technique pointers will be a huge help. [I posted this in the embroidery forum but I searched through there and it seems like maybe this is a better place for it.] Thanks.

34  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidering Patches? on: December 22, 2005 08:01:09 AM
Okay, there is this lady I work with who has been a great friend to me this last year, and I thought I'd make her something as a belated Christmas present in the coming weeks.

I got a small denim tote bag at Michael's, as well as some red gingham fabric, and Fabri-tack.

I got this image from the Stencilry web site and am going to cut it out of the gingham, then attach the patch to the denim bag with the Fabri-tack. After the glue has dried, I'm going to stitch the border in red floss, and maybe stitch a little red heart where Louisville is on the map.

Any thoughts? Do you think the Fabri-Tack will work okay? Is there anything I need to remember to do (or not do)? This will only be my 3rd embroidered project, and I've never worked with patches. The only stitches I know are the ones in the Stitch-It kit. I want the edges to look finished but cute. Help!  Smiley
35  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Tinsel Trees? on: November 15, 2005 08:02:45 AM
Hi - I was thinking of buying a tinsel tree like this, but I thought maybe I would rather make one instead. Any thoughts on how I could do this?

Thanks!
