I was a cross-stitcher before I was a scrapbooker, so I like to add hand-stitches as accents to the page. In this case, I loved the Crate Paper Confetti paper with the big blocky print, so I decided to add some Algerian eyes to them. An Algerian eye looks a little like a cross-stitch with a big plus sign stitched over it. Here’s a tutorial to show you how to do it.
