Any possibility of continuing this project as in different textures also making more of the cobblestone ones to branch off of the circle?

I've been looking into creating rooftop tiles to quickly create urban encounters. Do you think that first one there could be used at an angle to create a shingled effect our would it not work in that way?

It was intended to be more of a floor tile, and the second one from the left was the one I thought looked more like roof shingles, but I don't see any reason not to try it!

I'm curious, why do you say to print them on their side and not flat?

Detail tends to come out best on the side of a 3d printed object. The "grain" on the side has more lines per inch.

is it for use with just regular craft foam?

The photo in the description is Dollar Tree foam board with the paper peeled off, and I've tried it with pink XPS insulation foam from the hardware store, and it works pretty well also. Some types of foam you might need to heat up with a heatgun before they take the texture.
