Deflect-O DT Project Halloween Mobile

Deflect-o is known for it's amazing innovative tools to help bring your business and now crafting to life. As a Deflect-o DT it is my job to show more crafty innovative ways to create with such products. Today I bring you a Halloween Mobile I made using 3 amazing products from Deflect-o. So let me begin telling what I did!!!

Okay the above photo is my Halloween Moblie using Proucts from Defelct-o and other embellishments from my stash. Let me get into how I altered and what products I used.

The Photo above shows you a Deflect-o product called "Flexible Sign Dangles". These are Flexible light weight trips of metal that have adhesive on each side. What I di was bend 3 of them to form a circle using the adhesive to glue them. I then covered the circle in 1 layer of Black Tulle and then wrapped a decorative ribbon on top of that. The points where you see the skeleton hands, I hot glued black string that was glue in 3 different points. The string was brought to the top and clipped as well as decorated with the next Deflect-o product I used.

The top of the mobile is clipped with a Deflect-o Versagrip Sign Holder clip. This duel Clip on both ends allow you to clip your project, tag or signage and them clip it to something in all sort of directions. The Ball design you see in the center allows you to pivot and turn your creations and this opens to new ways to hang your projects. I glued a tulle an two ribbon bows to the base of the bottom clip and added a fun sticker in the center.

The next product from Deflect-o I used is called Sign Tags Wet Erase. These snazzy tags are made of a black plastic and come with a dry erase marker for your to add anything you want to them. You can cut them easily with scissors as I did above and make them into anything you would like. I cut mine in 2x2 inch squares an I hug 3 of them to spell out the word "BOO". Used my hole punch to create a hole for the decorative ribbon.

Now Check out all the photos below for more details I added to the Mobile. I think it turned out pretty awesome if you ask me!! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the products I have used in this project. I do hope you find inspiration in your Holiday crafting!!

Spellbinder and Xyron Design Team Project.

Hey Crafty Peeps!!! Cool air has rushed in here in Tennessee. The smells of Tobacco Barns and the vibrant colors of mums and pumpkins decorate the scenery. This has put me in the Fallish mood to bring to you a fabulous Card tutorial Using dies from Spellbinders and of course my Favorite Adhesive Xyon!! Below is a Step out tutorial I have created for you to show you how the process of this card came about. So come set a spell get warm and get inspired!!!

Spellbinders Nestabilities Majectic Squares
Xyron Creatopia Shapez Die By Spellbinders
Xyron Create Sticker Max
Xyron Create a Sticker 3"
Pop Dot
Vintage Photo which is provided below!

Step 1 As you see in the photos above. You are going to prepare your image and your frame for the image. For the Frame I cut it out with black cardstock. Ran it through my Xyron Sticker Maker 3" then I added Black Glitter then I ran it back through so I could make it a sticker to be placed around the photo. To prep my photo I ran it through the same Sticker Maker and placed it on a piece of Chipboard for added strength. The Frame is from the Xyron Creatopia Shapez Die By Spellbinders

Step 2: you will cut out 3 styles of paper. From the photo above, I used a base cardstock, the corrugated piece and a pattern piece. They all measure. Base Card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2  the Corrugated is 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 pattern piece 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. Run the Corrugated piece through the Xyron Create a Sticker Max.

Step 3: While the corrugated piece is still on the sticker paper, Use the cool NEW tool set from Core'dinations called Sand it Set and make the edges rough and torn.

Step 4: Cut out from using the Spellbinders Majestic Squares dies  in black cardstock. I used Silver Rub n Buff to give a old look. Pop Dot your photo onto this piece. and begin layering and added embellishements!! As see above I used Orange Glitter to bring out the Pattern Piece and to give the card more sparkle! Dont forget to run the pattern piece that is now glittered through your Xyron Create a Sticker Max to make it easy to peel and stick to build the card. SEE PHOTOS BELOW!!

The Haunted photo I used:

I want to wish you a fabulous HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! I hope this card has given your inspiration to create some awesome and festive cards for all your friends this season!! Please be sure to comment below and let me know what you think!!! Again thank you for stopping by for another fabulous creation,

Perfect Paper Crafting/Xyron Blog Hop

Hey Crafty Peeps!!! Yep I'm Back for another fabulous 6 months of Awesome projects to share with you!! This week I had the pleasure to work with my most Favorite adhesive XYRON and a awesome tool by Perfect Paper Crafting called the Perfect Airbrush! It is a no fuss approach to turning your markers into a Airbrush!! I was oober excited to work with this tool. Below is a quick mini tutorial showing what I did and how I used my Tim Holtz Markers to create this amazing FALL card!!! Before you scroll down be sure that you have begun the BLOG HOP by visiting the XYRON BLOG each day this week!!


Step 1: I found a free clipart image and or you can use a stamp of a tree with some leaves. I then pulled out some Fallish colors in my Tim Holtz Markers and began to play with the Perfect Airbrush. I began manually airbrushing different colors on the tree to give it that multicolored Fallish look!

Step 2: Using one of my Favorite XYRON 5" Creative Sticker Max I inked the edges of my design and ran it through to create a sticker.

Step 3: I did the same with the other elements of the card to create stickers and I used my XYRON 9" Creative Station to do so!! When you make everything into a sticker it makes is so easy to create. The adhesive is even strong enough to stick to burlap as you see below!!! Yep you can run the burlap through too!!! UMM YES!!!!

Step 4: Adding the few perfect touches of Twine and Burlap made this card perfect for FALL!! I added some Sticker letters and I was done!!!
