The creativity continues between Little Yellow Bicycle and Xyron. It has been a great surprise each day to stop by the Xyron Design Team Blog to see all of the wonderful Fall creations with our Acorn Hollow collection. Today we continue "Sticking Together" and encourage our fans to "stick" with us too. We have some goodies from Xyron to share, please see the end of this post for more details.
I love the bright colors of the Acorn Hollow collection. It is great for both autumn and everyday pages. I thought the collection would definitely compliment these photos of my son playing at the park. I clustered three photos (4x4, 4x5 and wallet-sized) to add more meaning from the day and to move the eyes around the page. My son is famous for his funny faces, so I had to add one instead of a traditional smiling photo. The baker's twine border keeps all the photos grounded in the middle.
I also love all of the beautiful foiling on the Acorn Hollow embellishments and how you can easily layer the clear cut stickers and chipboard shapes together. The green tree is a clear cut shape and the orange tree is chipboard.
The Xyron 2.5" Create-a-Sticker was super easy to use and perfect for both the chipboard and clear cut shapes. They easily crank through the machine and do NOT need to dry - which for an impatient scrapbooker like me, is a little slice of heaven. I was particularly happy that the adhesive was clear and does not ruin the clear cut shapes.
I liked the idea of tying the baker's twine together at the ends and then gluing it down as a "free form" frame. The black and white twine was a nice contrast to the fall colors and pulled the photos and papers together.
I'm a big fan of using LYB journal tickets and fresh verse stickers to make a title. It saves you from having to rely on alphabets and will fit together in fun clusters, like this one where I added a chipboard leaf and some jewel stickers as an accent.
