30 Days of Holidays with Xyron Advent Calendar

Merry Christmas!!! Can you believe it, we are days away from the big day? I wanted to share with you a fabulous card that will really knock the mittens off of whom ever receives this card. It is really easy I promise. So let me tell you how to make this card!!!

1. You are going to pick and choose 2 pattern papers and color of cardstock to coordinate. Cut each piece to fit your measurements.. Above I have a 5x7 card! So in the pattern paper I cut the Green at 3.5 x 6.75 and the stripe at 1.5 x 6.75. run EACh PIeCE through your XYRON Creative Station MAX!! I love this Machine!!! Peel and still and BAM!!! you are a card making DIVA!!

To cover the seam between the two I ran a piece of ribbon down the middle using some Glossy Accents to adhere it.

Now for the main attraction. The Wreath!! Super Simple and Sooo Easy to make!!!

First you want to get about a dozen of what is called " clear Wheat sprays" you can find them here at Creating with Details Store.

Take the Wheat Sprays and place them in a ziplock bag. Add several drops of Alcohol Inks in shades of green to the bag and smush around until all wheat sprays are coated. Dump out onto a paper towel an let fry for only a few mins. super fast and easy!!!

Then begin using your hot glue and bend the sprays into a wreath style as you see above, I added red jewels as berries. To Finish off the wreath you can simply glue it to the card or you can make it into a removable ornament. The Choice is yours!!!

I hope this simply and festive card gives you a new take on making wreaths for the holidays!!! You will be making tons of these!!!

Again thank you so much for stopping by,

Xyron and Paper House Blog Hop

Hey Crafty Peeps!! This week the Xyron Design Team and I is celebrating the Great Outdoors with our friends at Paper House - tune in every day for projects, tutorials and giveaways that will make you think about "outdoorsy" paper and embellishments in a whole new light!

I have brought to you a day a quick and easy Card tutorial that gives you that feeling on a Cold Snow Topped Forrest. So lets get started with the tutorial!!

Products Used:

Xyron Creative Station 9
Xyron Mega Runner
Foam Tape
Paper House Productions "Roughin It" 3D sticker
Paper House Productions Outdoors Diecut Sticker Pack Used the Deer
Paper House Productions Camping 2 Cardstock Stickers 
Paper House Productions Great Outdoors Paper Pad 
Brown and Black Cardstock
Metal Embellishments

You are going to pick a great background paper from the Great Outdoors Paper Pad. I chose the Forest scenery. You are then going to run the Brown piece of cardstock and the forest print through the Xyron Creative Station. As you can see from the photo, I also cut out and ran through the Creative Station some border pieces that were also in the paper pack that I will use later. 

Above I have cut out with my Silhouette Cameo some Pine trees and pine branches. I colored these using 3 different color inks to give it that real effect.

Then simply pulling from the stickers from Paper House Productions and the cut outs, I made a scenery of a forest. I used some snow flocking and my glossy accents to create snow tipped trees that you see below in the finished project. 

As you can see, this just looks like a snowy scene that makes you want to be snuggled in a cabin with a warm cup of coco on a cold winter day! The odd trees you see in the background are from the Paper House production sticker packs and I use elements from these packs to create the sign!!! 

If you are loving this card as much as I do, then head on over to the Paper House blog every day this week for even MORE great ideas - and they are giving away some of your favorite Xyron goodies as well!  We want to share some of the Paper House products we are loving with you - so all week long we'll be having giveaways here on our blog as well.  Just leave a comment and one lucky winner will win a fabulous prize!!! 

I want to wish everyone a fabulous Crafty Day!!

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!!

Your Deflect-o Designer
