School Fuel

School is starting soon and this week we are focused on some Back to School Inspiration! The Xyron Team will be sharing some great stuff all week so you won't want to miss anything.
I don't need to have teacher gifts anymore.  I have my "last" High Schooler in mind.  What a great Back To School card with a Tim's card to grab a morning coffee and donuts.

I used the Recipe Card die cut for the gift card to mount on.  My friend shared some of her coffee paper so I could stick with my coffee theme.

I inked the Fresh Brew coffee die with Fired Brick and stamped my new Viva Las Vegas Tim Horton's unmounted stamp.  ACK... LOVE THIS STAMP and I finally have it!

Run all the pieces through the Creative Station and Create a Sticker linked below.  I quickly attached all the alpha letters with the Create a Sticker.

Celebrating Back to School is a delicate matter with a Grade 11 student.  But, this is the perfect surprise for your tired teen!

Creepy Cat

Happy Purr- Day

My daughter just celebrated her 21st birthday and she is a big cat lover.  Of course that means she cats a kitty Purr-Day card;)  She picked out this Creepy Cat stamp and I decided this would be her birthday card.


This creepy cat from Viva Las Vegas Stamps cracks me up!

Who needs Birthday when you can have a Purr-Day.

Tried out the new Scribble Sticks for a vibrant punch of colour.


I layered the background with the crazy cats stamps... they look scared!

Stamping the fishbones for a great boarder.

My daughter loved her card... especially since she picked the stamp.  Thanks to everyone that wished her a Happy Purr-Day!  A little scribbling and stamping and you will have a simple Purr-Day card.

 I cut the creepy faces to the size of the wee windows.


I used the teeny flowers from the  Heartfelt Stitchy Flowers die.





The chimney is cut and I used Wendy Vecchi's new embossing powder Carnation Red with the bricked stencil.  Love this enamel powder!


I opted for the Rooftops die instead of the roof cut that comes with the House Pocket die.  I already had these piece cut from sandpaper.


I used my Xyron Creative Station to create a laminated and magnet cartridge.

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
