Paper House& Xyron Blog Hop!!

Join us for 5-day journey next week as we host a "Travel the World" co-blog hop with Xyron! RSVP to our Facebook event to stay up on all the details!

Super excited to bring to a wonderful creative 3D card idea using amazing products from Paper House Productions and Xyron!!! Below is a step out tutorial I have created to share with you how I made my "Travel to France" 3D card!!! Be sure to visit the link above to being this awesome creative journey!!! Today I take you to France!!!!

Products Used

1 Sheet of Color Card Stock
Paper from the Paper House Generations Paper Pack
3D Paper House Scenes Stickers Paris
Paper House Cardstock Stickers France
Xyron Mega Runner
Pop Dots

Step 1: I used the Side Step card tutorial from a wonderful blog called "Out Daily Bread" Find the tutorial here  Then I used the 3D stickers Paris and used a product called UN-DO. This product can be bought at your local craft store and or wal-mart. It is an adhesive removal product that will leave your images and papers untouched and clean while removing adhesive, pop-dots and more. So I separated all of the layers of the sticker!! Find a video review on this product on my youtube channel HERE

Step 2: Get the paper from the Generations Paper Pad and select the tree background. I fussy cut the some of the grass scene and tree scene from the paper and places them onto the card bases using my Xyron Mega Runner.

Step 3: Begin stacking the elements from the separated 3D sticker Paris and using the Xyron Mega Runner adhere them to the card as you see above. Also you see above me using the Paper House Cardstock Stickers (France) and adding the elements as the sign and the house. I them took additional pop-dots and fussy cut more grass and layered the pieces in front of the house.

Step 4: From the same Paper House Cardstock Sticker Set, I chose the title France and fussy cut it out on a piece of cardstock and them pop-dotted the piece to the card!!!

That is it!!! This card makes me feel like I'm in France and could have not done it without some amazing products!!!!

I hope you embark on this journey with us and gather some amazing inspiration from the designers all week!!! I super excited and I THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! for stopping by for another great and inspiring tutorial!!!!

Until Next Fabulous Project

Out on a Limb Scrapbooking Blog Hop featuring Xyron

Be sure to visit the XYRON BLOG Each DAY for more chances to win amazing prizes and to see what the other designers have in store for you!!!

Hello Crafty Peeps, welcome to the "Out on a Lim Scrapbooking" Blog Hop featuring Xyron

I'm so excited to bring to you a fabulous Card using the Monster Love Page Kit.

Supplies to make this card:

~The Monster Love kit
~ Xyron 9" Creative Station
~ Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit
~Xyron Mega Runner
~ Glitter ( I used Donna Salazar's Fairy Dust)
~Rhinestone Embellishments
~Black Ink
~ Clear Liquid Adhesive
~ Embossing Folder

Step 1: Pull out of the kit the Monster Love kit the Black Cardstock, the XO pattern Paper, and the Pink and Blue Pieces.

Step 2: Run the pink and blue pieces of paper through an Embossing folder of your choice. I used
Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 2PK - Plaid & Snowflakes Set ( I used the Plaid Folder)

Step 3: Grab all of the Monster Parts in the kit that are pink!! Also at this time Grab out the hearts and the elements for the eyes. Pop dot the second layer of the Girl monster and adhere it to the body.

Step 4: Using the Xyron Creative Station 9", place the face of the monster upside down so that you can get adhesive on the front side of the face. This will give a perfect even adhesive for glitter.

Step: 5 Re-Run the face back through the creative station face up to create a sticker with all your pieces such as the pattern paper, the embossed papers, the eye elements and some hearts.

Step 6: Peel and stick all the piece of the Girl Monster together as you have seen above. Then peel and stick your back ground piece to the black cardstock card that has been cut to a 5x7 size. Trim down the XO pattern paper to 4 7/8 x 6 7/8.

Step 7: When you are ready to apply your Girl Monster, get the Pop Dots from the Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive kit. These are thicker and will really make the little monster seem to jump off the page.

Step 8: Take a piece of Plain Cardstock from the kit and use your Xyron mega Runner to apply adhesive to the back and place it inside the card for the sentiment.

Step 9: Add hearts and rhinestones around the card and if you want to add some lasting touches you can use your clear adhesive and go over certain areas of the monster as you see below.

So there you have it!!! A Kit that can bring out an amazing card!!! Just think I;m left with tons of elements to make more cards!!!! I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box. And be sure to visit all of Xyron's Designers Blogs for more inspiration!!!
