Xyron and Quick Quotes Hop - Day 5





Xyron and Quick Quotes Blog Hop!
Day 5

What a fun week it's been, hopping with our friends at Xyron!  Today we have Rhonda and Christine sharing some fun projects featuring the all new "Halloween" collection by Quick Quotes and our favorite Xyron adhesive!!!

Be sure to leave a comment for your chance to win a prize*!

------------
Happy Friday to you!  Rhonda here today with you.  I'm so thrilled that Quick Quotes and Xyron have teamed up this week to share products and creations!  Haven't the projects been fantastic?  

I'm in absolute LOVE with the new Halloween collection from Quick Quotes!  Just check out these vibrant colors...  *swoon*!


Embossing using the Creatopia:
I embossed a 12x12 piece of Core'dinations with hearts.

I cut this die shape with my Silhouette and ran through 
the Xyron 5" Creative Station.

A close up for details.

I don't know about you, but I use my Xyron X machine and my 5" Creative Station all the time.  It's particularly wonderful for all of your intricate die cut shapes and chipboard pieces.

If you haven't seen the Xyron Creatopia machine in action, you are missing out!  It does so many cool things from cutting, embossing full 12x12 pages, applies laminate and adhesive.  You can see even more information on all of their products at www.xyron.com.  

Supplies:
Halloween collection, Quick Quotes
PowderPuff Chalk Inks:  Purple Passion, Mango Mai Tai and Limeade, Quick Quotes
Xyron Creatopia
Xyron 5" Creative Station
Silhouette
Core'dinations Cardstock and sanding block
Black Cardstock, Recollections
Bat and Spider, Petaloo
Corner Chomper
Foam Tape, Imaginisce
Other:  Mini Alphas, Pinking Scissors, Thread and Sewing Machine

Hi Quick Quotes and Xyron fans, Christine here!  

Aren't you just loving all these Halloween projects!?!  I decided to share a layout with you of my little toddler on Halloween and go for the cute factor.  ( :


I used the Xyron Mega Glue Runner and the 2.5" Create a Sticker Maker for my adhesives on this page.


The Glue Runner worked awesome for getting all the little pieces down for my spider web.  I also used it for my little chipboard spider and title!  That spider web was so fun to create, cutting up pieces of patterned papers to fit each part of the web was challenging but worth it for the look.  I'm glad I had good adhesive to speed the process up!

I turned my banners into stickers using the Create a Sticker Maker and ensuring that they would stay down well.

Thanks to Xyron for being a leader in the industry and creating such great adhesive.  And thanks to Quick Quotes for a super fun Halloween line!

Supplies Used:
Googly Eyes
Staples
Button
Creative Charms Black Pearls
