  9. Thank you so much for posting this video!!! I love the look of stitching on cards but so far haven't been brave enough to try it. I have gone so far as to buy a little sewing maching.... but it still sits in the box. Thank you for giving the kick in the butt I need to get it out and set it up!

  14. Well done! Thank you for sharing your expertise with us! I love the extra pizzazz that sewing gives to handmade cards. I always get stuck when I have to cut the threads, so thanks for that tip! Looking forward to any tutorial you produce...you're a great teacher.

  15. That is a great Tutorial Jeanie. So wouldnt have the guts to try sewing (plus not owning a sewing machine would make it difficult). Still enjoyed watching it though.

  20. Jeanie, you make it look sooooo easy!!! But trying this out on my own is the stamping equivalent of getting my hair to look like the hair stylist did. . .;) MWAH!

  26. Great video Jeanie, thank you for explaining so well... and DH for great camera work!! Still early days for sewing on my cards, but i'm getting there!! I love the Gutermann threads too, they seem to work so well, I especially love the machine embroidery threads as they have a fab sheen to them Hugs, Sue xx

  34. Another great tutorial Jeanie! I sew on pretty much every single card I make, and I still learned a lot! I had NEVER thought of doing the "lift the foot and cheat" thing to make it line up better!! DUH!! Thank you so much for sharing that. :-)

  35. Thanks for this tutorial Jeanie. I like to sew on my cards too, but I always have trouble when it comes to the end, I reverse stitch because I don't want it to unravel, but it never looks neat. Now I know how to do it. Thanks so much for sharing this. Have a lovely day, Babs
