Tulla & Norbert's Love Story Album

Directions:

  • For the cover, cut the matboard into two 5” x 7” pieces.
  • Cut two 5” x 7” pieces of black dot scrapbook paper and two 5” x 7” pieces of diagonal stripe paper.
  • Place the scrapbook paper into the Xyron Creative Station®* design side up. Crank the handle to run the scrapbook paper through the machine. As the scrapbook paper goes through the Xyron Creative Station, it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the scrapbook paper. (You will need to add adhesive to all four pieces of scrapbook paper.)
  • Remove the clear protective coating. Peel the paper from the white backing and stick it directly onto the matboard. Each piece of the mat board* will have black dots on one side and diagonal stripes on the other.
  • The Black Dot Scrapbook paper will be on the front and back cover with the diagonal stripe paper on the inside.
  • Cut two 1 ½” x 7” strips of diagonal striped paper. Run the strips through the Xyron Creative Station®* to add adhesive to the back.
  • Stick onto the edge of the front and back cover. Pay special attention to the placement on the back cover so that the pieces line up on the right side.

Tulla & Norbert's Love Story Album-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 709

  • For the inside pages, cut six 5” x 7” pieces of black cardstock.
  • Cut two 9¼” x 7” pieces of black cardstock. Score the cardstock at 5” lengthwise to create a page that has a flap.
  • Adhere a variety of Tulla & Norbert Love Story scrapbook paper onto the front and back of each section of the black cardstock using the Xyron Tape Runner*.
  • Using a Book Binding Machine*, bind the album together.
  • Cut apart the 3” x 4” journaling cards to adorn the front cover and some of the inside pages.

Tulla & Norbert's Love Story Album

  • A great way to add adhesive to the Tulla & Norbert’s Love Story Ephemera is to place them into the 3″ Xyron Disposable Sticker Maker*. Just pull, rub, and stick. To remove any excess adhesive around the die-cut pieces, use the Xyron Adhesive Eraser*.
  • Create fun page flaps and pockets to add your album using stickers, die-cuts, ribbon, and twine*.

Snowflake Kisses

Snowflake Kisses Card

As I finished up my Christmas Cards for the season,

I thought I’d make one last card that isn’t traditionally Christmas.

I wanted to make a Winter card that would work for a Winter Birthday

or Valentine’s Day. (but could also work for a Christmas card)

Making a Christmas Putz House

Making a Christmas Putz House

Christmas Putz houses are little cardboard or paper houses.

Sometimes illuminated, they are usually decorated with mica flakes

and glitter to make festive Holiday Villages.

Making a Christmas Putz House
Last year, the Eileen Hull Teams got together to bring everyone a little

Comfort and Joy during a rough Christmas Season.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it, so we decided to do it again.

My Christmas Putz House, made with Eileen’s House Ornament Die*,

is my contribution to this year’s “Comfort and Joy” collaboration.

Making a Christmas Putz House

Materials Used:  (*affiliate link)

Making a Christmas Putz House

Directions:

  • Cut two 6″ x 8″ pieces of Christmas Scrapbook.
  • Run both pieces of paper design side up through the Xyron Creative Station®*. As the paper moves through, it adds adhesive to the underneath side. You get complete adhesive covering.
  • Cut two pieces of Sizzix Matboard* 6″ x 8″.
  • Adhere the Christmas Scrapbook paper onto each one of the mat boards. (Underneath will be plain)
  • Lay covered mat board on top of the House Ornament Die*. Sandwich the die and mat board between the cutting plates. Run the die, matboard, and cutting plate through the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine*. The Big Shot will cut out the house shape and two tiny houses you can use on a later project.
  • Cut two of the house shapes.
  • Carefully fold on the scored lines.
  • Cut off the top tab with the two holes on both houses. (It is for making the house into an ornament.)
  • You will also need to cut the bottom flap from one of the houses.
  • Use Rapid Fuse Adhesive* to assemble the house. Glue all sides of the house together before gluing the roof tabs.  

Making a Christmas Putz House

  • For the Roof: Cut a piece of Kraft Corrugated paper 2 1/4″ x 4″. Fold in half and glue to the top of the roof.
  • Place two small pieces of white mat board over the window section of the ornament house die and run through the big shot die cutting machine. Trim around the matboard to create two small windows. Cut two small pieces of gold paper or vellum to fit under the window frame and glue them into place. Glue the windows frames onto the house.  
  • Cut a tiny piece of mat board to use as a door.  Glue a small piece of corrugated paper over the door for the roof.
  • Use a 3″ x 4″ piece of mat board as the base for the house. Cover the mat board with scrapbook paper.
  • Glue the putz house, bottle brush tree, and mini snowman ornament to the base.
  • Decorate your Christmas Putz House with small wreaths, snowflakes, glitter and mica flakes.

I love fall, cooler weather, and changing leaves.

It makes me want to make everything in my home warm and cozy.

Grab a nice bowl of soup and a comfy sweatshirt, and it’s the perfect setting for just staying in.

Cozy Watercolor Leaves

Cozy Watercolor Leaves Cardmaking Tips…

  • One of my favorite tips for die-cutting small pieces is to run the paper through the Xyron Creative Station* to add a layer of adhesive to the back before I die-cut. The paper pieces become stickers which make adhering them to cards very easy.
  • Die-cut the leaves out of cream cardstock.
  • Watercolor the leaves using ink from an ink pad and a waterbrush. I applied the ink directly onto a lamented piece of paper (or use a non-porous surface) and picked up the ink with the waterbrush.

Cozy Watercolor Leaves

Cozy Watercolor Leaves Cardmaking Tips Continued

  • The card measures 5″ x 6 ½”.
  • Cut a moss green cardstock layer 4¾” x 6 ¼”.  
  • Using the large circle die from the die set, cut a hole in the center of the cardstock layer. Adhere the layer onto a cream cardstock base.
  • Cut the words “let’s get cozy” out of champagne luster adhesive vinyl. Remove backing from the vinyl and apply it to the center of the circle.
  • Build a layered wreath on the top and bottom of the circle. Add small dots using the small circles dies from the set to the top of the card.

DIY Holiday Planner

DIY Holiday Planner

Creating a Holiday Planner…

It’s never too early to start thinking about the Holidays.

So…when Xyron asked me to do a Christmas in July project using the Xyron Holiday Bundle,

of course, I said YES!

To be honest, my first thought was to run over to my local scrapbook store

and buy something new to use in my project.

Christmas is my weakness, and I have so much leftover from previous years.

I decided to “Scrap my Stash” instead. In the end, I used paper from 3-4 different collections.

(I’m so proud of my self-control.)

My Holiday Planner measures 6″ x 8″. 

It is big enough to write in but small enough to grab and go.

Xyron Creative Station

DIY Planner Details:

  • Cut two 6″ x 8″ pieces of decorative paper for the front cover and two 6″ x 8″ pieces for the inside front and back covers.
  • Lay the paper into the Xyron 9″ Creative Station* design side up. Crank the handle of the Creative Station* to run it through the machine. As it goes through the machine it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the paper. No electricity needed, easy to use.
  • Peel the decorative paper from the protective liner and place it onto a 6″ x 8″ piece of chipboard. Cover the front and back sides of the chipboard.
  • I love using the Xyron 9″ Creative Station* when I make albums.  I get complete coverage and everything lays smooth, no wrinkles.
  • I like to use a craft mat and craft knife to trim away any excess paper.
  • A sanding block is great for smoothing out the edges of the covered chipboard.

Xyron Disposable Sticker Maker

  • Cut decorative strips to add the front and back of the planner.  If you’ve never made a planner/album like this, you’ll want to give particular thought to the placement of the strips on the back cover to make sure they line up with the front of the planner.
  • I used coordinating decorative scrapbook paper to create a frame for the front of my planner using the frame die from The Maker’s Movement.

DIY Holiday Planner Pages

  • I created several different types of pages using a word program for the inside of the planner.
  • As you can see, it doesn’t have to be anything fancy.
  • Once you get your cover finished and your inside pages created, you’ll want to bind it all together using a binding machine.  I used an old Bind it All Machine.  You can also use The Cinch Book Binding Machine*.

Holiday Planner-Calendar Pages

November and December are the crucial days when planning the Holidays. 

I printed out two calendar pages from SaturdayGift.com and sized them to fit in my planner.

On the inside of the front cover, I created a pocket for lists and coupons.

Christmas Gift List

I am that person.  I write down everything I buy for Christmas.

Do you still send Christmas Cards?

I love getting and sending Christmas Cards over the Holidays.  (sometimes I even make them)

I don’t get as many or send as many as I used to, but I love hanging them on display.

Favorite Family Recipes…

I have several family favorite recipes that I make every year.

Several years ago, I typed them all up and saved them on my computer.

It was easy to reprint them and add them to this year’s Holiday Planner.

DIY Holiday Planner-Notes & Receipt Holder-Sue's Creative Workshop www.sueeldred.com 1549

Notes and Stuff…

These pages are for writing down special memories, tips of things that worked that’ll you’ll want

to remember for the next holiday get-together, or the other room mom’s phone number.

There’s so much that we need to remember during the holidays.

And don’t forget to save those receipts for easy returns.

I added a thick buffalo plaid zipper bag in my planner to hold those receipts.

Jingle All The Way… 

Create another pocket in the back to tuck in pictures and invitations.

I can never have too many pockets to help keep me organized.

The nice thing about Christmas in July is that by the time the Holidays do arrive,

I’ll be almost ready.

A Coffee Themed Card for Mom

Directions:

  • Die-cut the pieces from the Coffee Die Set out of scrapbook paper using the Crossover II Die-Cutting Machine.
  • Assemble the die-cut pieces on a layered card front.
  • For the base of the gift card holder, I cut a piece of cardstock 5 1/4″ x 9 3/4″.  Score lengthwise every 3 1/4″.
  • Adhere a 3″ x 5″ piece of green polka dot paper onto the middle panel.
  • On the third panel, cut down the side approx. 2 1/2″.  Cutaway the remaining section of the panel on a diagonal to create a flap.
  • Adhere the bottom and the short side of the flap to the middle panel to create a pocket.
  • Decorate the pocket with a flower that was “fussy cut” from the floral paper.  Add a small strip to edge the pocket.

Die-Cutting letters using the Crossover II.

Directions Continued:

  • For the letters on the front of the card, I used gold foiled paper.  To make the letters stickers, I ran the gold foiled paper through the Xyron Creative Station*.  As you run the paper through the machine it adds a complete layer of adhesive to the back of the paper.
  • Die-Cut the letters to spell “MOM” using the Alphabet Die Set and the
  • Die-cut the gold foiled paper (with adhesive added to the back) using the alphabet die and the Crossover II Die-Cutting System*.
  • Remove the backing off the back of the letters and stick them onto the front of the card.
  • Tie gold thread around the front of the card and tie it with a knot.

LETTER ALIGNING TIP…If you’re a perfectionist like I am and want to align the letters as straight as possible. Use Gridded Transfer Paper* to help you line up the letters. Place the front of the foiled letters on the adhesive side of the transfer paper, remove the backing off of the foiled paper and transfer the letters onto the front of the card.

A coffee themed card for Mom

Now all you need to do is add a gift card for her favorite store or coffee place along with a sweet note.

Accordion Album made with Kaisercrafts's Flower Shopped Collection.

Directions:

  • Cut two 4″ x 6″ matboard panels.
  • Cut two 5″ x 7″ green polka dot paper pieces.  You will need to generously apply adhesive to the back of the paper.  I like to use my Xyron Creative Station to add adhesive.  Run the paper design side up through the machine to add a “complete layer” of adhesive on the paper.  (no wrinkles, no electricity)
  • Lay matboard on center back of polka dot paper.  Miter paper edges by cutting diagonal triangle off each edge of four corners, leaving 1/8″ space between cut and matboard.  (TIP…save triangles to cover edges if corners don’t meet)  Fold edges over the matboard and adhere.  Repeat with the second set of panels.
  • Decorate the front of the album using designs from the “Arrangement” paper.  I layered the “bloom where you are planted” 3″ x 4″ section onto a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of cardstock.  For added dimension, I adhered the layers onto a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of matboard.
  • Paint four metal corners with white multi-media paint.  After the paint has fully dried, lightly sand over the corners to reveal the embossed design.  Fold around edges of the matboard layer.  Adhere layered matboard to the front of the album cover.

Kaisercraft Flower Shoppe-Accordion Album

  • Cut two 5-7/8″ x 12″ strips of “sunroom” scrapbook paper.  Score lengthwise every 3-7/8″.  You will end up with 3 panels and a small narrow section at the end of each strip approximately a 1/2″ inch.  On one panel, cut the extra 1/2″ strip off.  Adhere the 1/2″ tab onto the back of the other panel to create one long 6-panel accordion strip.  Refold the panel if necessary.
  • Adhere each end of the accordion strip to the 4″ x 6″ covered chipboard panels.
  • Create pockets and flaps using extra scrapbook paper pieces.

Hello Spring Banner

Hello Spring Banner 2537

Welcome Spring with a Cute Bunny Inspired Wreath.

Using a few inexpensive wood cut-outs from Dollar Tree I created a fun Spring Banner to hang

on my wreath.  With the help of my Xyron Creative Station*, it was quick and easy to make.

Hello Spring Banner 2403

Directions:

  • Put the paper design side up on the Xyron Creative Station* crank the handle to run the paper through the machine.  As it moves through the Xyron Creative Station it adds adhesive to the back side of the paper.  Easy to use and it doesn’t need any electricity.

Hello Spring Banner 2420

  • Lay wood cut-outs onto the adhesive side of the paper.
  • Cut around the shape with a craft knife.
  • Sand the rough cut edges of the shape with a sanding block*.  You can use an Emory board to get into small places to sand.

Hello Spring Banner 2464

  • String the finished wood pieces onto a piece of ribbon or twine.
  • I used the New Xyron Multi-Stick Glue Gun to add the flowers and leaves embellishments.
  • One of my favorite features of the New Xyron Multi-Stick Glue Gun is that you can add up to three glue sticks so that you don’t have to keep reloading while you work.
  • FYI…I also added a bit of hot glue strategically under the wood pieces to help keep them from twisting on the twine.
  • I used letters cut from StyleTechCraft adhesive vinyl to spell the word “Hello”.  You could also use chipboard letters or letter stickers.
