This week just keeps getting better and better and today is no excpetion not to mention that tomorrow will continue the fun with a special blog hop and giveaway, so stay tuned...
Boy, oh boy, this Xyron Create A Sticker Maker is slick-stuff! Have y’all enjoyed seeing all the projects both here and on Xyron’s blog?
I’ll be honest, I used to get so frustrated with the limitations I had using my Xyron 1.5” Create A Sticker—you know the ever popular “X”. Why? Because, well, 1.5” just felt so limiting in my little creative world.
But, when Xyron sent me the 2.5” Create A Sticker…..wowza! It instantly changed my mind when it comes to sticker making. It’s amazing how freeing that extra inch can be in the world of crafting.
The first thing I noticed was no longer did I have that crinkly plastic film over the item I was stickering. And no longer did I have exposed adhesive! No sticky fingers, no messy glue, no fussing with glue dots (I’ve lovingly nicknamed them glue boogers….ha!).
What makes it even more awesome is that now, the backing material is even a bit different and my punches could go through it like butter! No more jammed punches.
So, for this layout, I ripped a handful of pages out of my 6x6 paper pad, and then trimmed them down to 1 ¼” wide. Placed two strips side by side, but not overlapping, then cranked them through the Create A Sticker machine.
Then I used a 1” circle punch to punch down the length of each patterned paper. In less than 5 minutes, I had 50+ 1” circles with edge-to-edge adhesive. All I needed to do was peel off the protective backing and stick them to my page.
So while the layered circle embellishing looks super fussy, reality is this page was constructed in 20 minutes tops!
Xyron 2.5” Create A Sticker? In my opinion, a must have in every scrapboooker’s tool arsenal. Get yourself one!
