Day 2

Hello Fellow Scrappers!

We are blog hopping with Xyron this week and I wanted to share with you a project I created wtih the new Halloween release from Quick Quotes.  I used the Creative Station from Xyron on many of my diecuts.



I created a door hanger from the Halloween Line.  The moon is a 5 " circle cut from
white cardstock and chalked with Lemonade Chalk Ink.


The die cut Tim Holtz Crickety House was inked using Mango Mai Tai and a little Mocha Mamma.  
I inked it, applied versa mark and a few coats of UTEE.  It was then put through the 
Xyron Creation Station,
as was the grass which I punched using a EK Success Punch.


I die cut some pinwheels using the Tim Holtz die in all three sizes. The center of the pinwheels were put through the Xyron Creation Station and the adhesive allowed the assembly to go much smoother!

The MFT Die was also put through the Xyron Creation Station.  
What a wonderful way to make sure my die cuts are adhered well!!!

Happy Scrapping!

Great ideas; putting the pinwheel centers & the squares through the Xyron. This will definately cut down the drying time and the glooze that mushes up everywhere. Thanks ladies. You all rock!!!!
