Creative Imaginations+ Faber Castell + Xyron= Scrappy Goodness

For this first project, i took an old embroidery hoop, traced the circulur shape onto a few pieces of Creative Imaginations p.p., ran them through my Xyron 900. Added some stitching with my sewing machine. I then used the Faber Castell pitt pastel pencils to add a little more brightness to the red flowers & berries, and the Creative Imaginations twinkling h2o's to the leaves , flowers, & and berries. Finally i added the Creative Imaginations diecut pieces by running them through my Xyron 250 & 510 adhesive machines. For finishing touches i made a bow with some ribbon, & cut out a saying from the Joy card sheet & adhered to a small piece of Canvas Corp burlap.

 For my next project, i used an old frame & cut down the Creative Imaginations red cardinal p.p. to fit the inside of the frame, leaving a border to adhere paper to Canvas Corp burlap

i then ran the cardinal p.p. through my Xyron 900 to adhere it to the burlap , it worked great to hold it into place while i was machine sewing along the border

after sewing, i was again ran through my Xyron 900 to secure to frame backing (this worked perfect)
finishing details; I used the Creative Imaginations Twinkling H2O's in Pearl red & Oyster to accent. I also used the faber castell cocnut gelato across the background. K & Company rub-on.
my final project, i covered an little notebook i had laying around with Creative Imaginations Rejoice p.p. & Rejoice stripes by running the papers through my Xyron 510 & adhering to cover.
I then stamped the image on the notebook with the Faber Castell pitt artist pen in colbalt turquoise (i think i could through all my ink pads out now).

i then altered this napkin holder/desk organizer by tracing the star onto the CI p.p. & then running through Xyron machine to adhere.

For finishing touches i added some ribbon to notebook & star, then added some CI diecuts & spruced up the color with Twinkling H2O's and the Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils

Xyron & Little Yellow Bicycle

This week Xyron & Little Yellow Bicycle are teaming up to bring you some fabulous ideas, here's what i created, be sure to check out Xyron's blog all week for more projects.

All layouts feature the Acorn Hollow Collection, Xyron Mega runner, adhesive runner, 150, & the 250. I used the Xyron 250 to adhere the clear transparency pieces on the thankful layout , this worked great giving the pieces edge to edge adhesive with no show.

Xyron & Global Craft

Had some fun playing with my Xyron machines along with Global Craft's Piccolo Decor accents, first i made this bookmark:

I made the bookmark by running the whole Piccolo piece (decor style 6) through my Xyron 250, then covering with Echo Park Eclectic paper, i loved the kraft color of the swirl , so i ran it through my Xyron 150 & placed on my bookmark. I did add a little pink to the hearts with a American Crafts Memory Marker & adhered them with the 150 as well.

I made a card next with the Piccolo Decor style 10 piece, i ran the piece through my Xyron upside down, so the adhesive would be on top, i then poured some cotten candy glitter by Clearsnap on top. I used Cloud 9 specialty p.p., and some pop-dots.
