One of the things I love to use on my scrapbook pages is my sewing machine.
If you use a denim needle it slides through paper like butter.
I love it because....
it adds so much texture
it is a pretty inexpensive embellishment (if you already have a machine)
you can color code it to any page (the dollar store has TONS of different colors of thread)
you can use it to hold things down.
This page is from the March 2009 Scraptivity kit seen here.
And my 8x12 print is from Costco.
