    I love stitching. But, I only did it using rub-ons or with the pen. Any suggestions on a sewing machine? What do you do? I've seen some that people do a criss cross cricle.

    I've never done any stitching on my pages. My husband bought a Sew Crafty Mini sewing machine for a scout project and on the box it says you can use it scrapping. Ever since he got it, I've been wanting to try it, but I am really afraid that it will tear my paper. Anyone ever actually done stitching on paper?

    I too haven't tried it yet scared it will tear paper. I guess the best way to find out is try on scrap paper first until you get the hang of doing it.

    I do it all the time. I happened to buy a pre-packaged lay-up that had stiching on it. It gave me an idea for a lay-up and since then, I am have several lay-ups with stiching on them. Just practice on some scrap paper. The length and tension is very important. Try stiching down some ribbon, that is a nice effect....

    I stitch on mine all the time too. It shouldn't tear your paper if the settings are not for real tight stitches.
