Please feel free to download and share these documents I created.  If you do share them please credit and link to my blog :D  I would love to see any photos of the patterns stitched or any colour variations that have been created!  Free free to send me pictures if you would like to have them shared and I will post them here with a credit and link to your blog/page.

Diamond Painting Resources

I've made an Information Sheet for HAED Diamond Painting, it includes information on how to calculate diamond amounts and canvas size.  The PDF also includes steps for making a modified order on AliExpress and answers to some frequently asked questions.  Please note that the Facebook links will only be accessible to group members.  There is also a Spreadsheet that can be used to calculate how many packets are needed to make an order.  Please read the notes in the PDF file if you are going to use this!
