I use embroidery floss, and mark the lines using a clear ruler and my paper piercer.

I love the Sew Easy. I have several different design wheels so I can change up the look.

I do. I either just poke holes and stitch by hand with floss, or I use my sewing machine.

I love the look of stitching on a layout!

I do not sew nor have a sewing machine but my husband bought me the Sew Easy with every single head for Christmas this past year and I have never used it. Shame on me, I know. I want to use it but just haven't had the time to try it out.

Maybe that will be my goal in the next few weeks....

My Cricut Expression 2 was also a Christmas present and I am sooo intimidated by it, I have yet to use it once either....,

Trish

I also love stitching ... I don't have a sewing machine, but I use the Bazzill In Stitches (which I love) or the Sew Easy (which imo, is just ok)

I sew on my machine. I also sew by hand if it is something that need to be done by hand. I use embroidery floss for the hand stuff. For the machine, i use my reg sewing thread

I use my sewing machine but have also sewed by hand with floss and with twine, I just make the holes with a paper piercer and use a big needle.

For the paper garlands, I pick out my favorite patterned papers. Then I pick my favorite punches and punch the shapes out. Next, I make stacks next to my sewing machine so they are easy to grab while I'm using the sewing machine.
Then you grab wax paper or parchment paper and tear off as much as you need (depending on how long you want your garland). Start feeding the wax paper through your sewing machine and while your stitching the wax paper add your punched shapes into the stitch. You can add them close together, are far apart or both.
After the punched shapes are stitched onto the wax paper you turn the paper over and start pulling one side away from the stitch. Surprisingly, it pulls away from the stitch pretty easy.
After both side have been pulled off, you will have a stitched garland.
I love using papers with specialty finishes. It makes the garlands very pretty.

Sorry for the long instructions and hopefully they make sense. Good luck!
