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
