For the stitching templates someone mentioned that you must do back stitching with this template. where would I find information on this?

I have the flourishes and love them. What I do is place the template on the paper or cardstock where I want the design to be stitched and then lightly mark with a pencil. Then I remove the template and use the piercing tool to pierce the holes for stitching. I thread a needle with the number of strands of floss I want to use for the stitching, starting with: come up in hole 2, down in hole 1, up in hole 3, down in how 2, and so on. I secure the tail of floss on the underside of the layout with tape. Hope this helps!

Kathy :-)
