Xyron and Quick Quotes Blog Hop - Day 3

Xyron and Quick Quotes Blog Hop!
Day 3
Today we have a beautiful project to share with you from Donna Coughlin!
Be sure to leave a comment each day for your chance to win a prize*!

Hi everyone, Donna here today to share my project with you. As you know, Quick Quotes and Xyron have teamed up to have this blog hop and share some fun inspiration with you this week!  We hope you are enjoying it!!!

I made this layout using the May Quick Quotes Club Q Kit featuring the new Serendipity collection and of course my favorite adhesives from Xyron.
"Simple Pleasures"
I had some leftover flowers from my Club Q, so I used those and cut out some more. To get this effect:
  • I first dabbed ink on them first using the PowderPuff Chalk Inks, the new Caribbean Blue and Very Berry.
  • Then misted the flowers with water, this causes the inks blend together.
  • Next you crumble up the flowers into a little ball, (I know, it sounds crazy, but once you open them up it gives them a really neat look!)
  • Then just layer more flowers on top, as many or little as you want.
  • To finish, just add a brad or some bling in the middle and your all set.

My four favorite and go to adhesives are:
  1. The Xyron Mega Runner, which I use all the time on pictures.
  2. The Xyron Glue stick is great for paper, 
  3. I use Xyron tape runner for pictures and ribbon. 
  4. The new 3" Sticker Maker.
Let me tell you about the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker shown below. The new square shape works wonders. You can now get those little tiny pieces into the Sticker Maker effortlessly!  It's so easy, and also because it's 3" wide, it's so versatile! I'm totally lovin' this new design!!! There is also a bigger sticker maker, the 9" Creative Station that I use for larger die cuts.

I love those flowers and the way to color them with the Quick Quotes chalks and of course "Xyroning" everything together! Wow! I just thought of something - Xyroning is more fun than ironing!
