Sewing on your paper craft projects

Hi Everyone,
I hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

I've been using my sewing machine a lot on my scrapbook layouts, cards, and project life and have had a few questions and requests to do a video...so here it is...
Watch below | Watch on You Tube

I hope this video helped answer some questions. I just love the added detail it gives your projects. It's the finishing touch for me now on everything.
Have a great day.
Happy crafting :)



  1. Hey christina, Love your projects especially when a sewing machine is used. I have been wanting to break out mine, my question is does the cardstock damage the needle on the machine? Kelly


  2. Thanks for the video! I was too aftraid that I would tear the cardstock by sewing. Seeing how you set the stitch length really helped!

  3. Hi Christina! Is there a hand or portable sewing machine that you could recommend,like only for scrapbooking, i am not a sewing fabrics or anything else person.
    Loved the tutorial though...

  4. Thanks for the information. I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine which I not so loving call "The Beast". I have a hard time sewing a straight line because the machine just has a mind of his/her own and takes off! I have a heavy foot, too....but it's either 1st gear or 5th gear....none in between! LOL! My machine is about 25 years old, though...maybe it's time to update....!

  5. Thank you, Christina! Is there a sewing machine for scrapbooking? Which one would you recommend?

  6. It's Goooo-ter-man thread ...lol
    Good tip on changing out needles ...just like with scissors ...one for paper and one for fabric!

  7. I look forward to coming over to your blog and checking in. You are so talented!
    I believe the button you pushed on your machine to bring the needle up isn't just for that. I believe the purpose of the button is to go down and grab your bobbin thread so that you don't have to do that manually, like you did in the video. So try pushing the button just after you turn on your machine pull on your thread and the bobbin thread should be looped in your sewing thread. I don't know if that makes sense or not. Sorry if it doesn't. I just thought I would give that tip. I like my machine, it's a different style and brand but has many of the same features yours does. Thanks again.
