Yes, I tried it a few times. The machine stitching attempt didn't show up properly which annoyed me, and blunted my good needle.

I had great fun wasting hours cross-stitching all round 4 squares on one LO which looked gorgeous but I'll admit I have never finished that page.

Then for a "stitch your title" challenge, I poked holes for the letters and stitched them by hand with tapestry wool - exactly 3 words of 3-4 letters each, and it took AGES and my neck was killing me for days afterwards. That was the last time.

I love the look though, and I often do faux-stitching.
