Winter Fun with Xyron, Core'dinations, and Petaloo

Welcome to the Xyron, Core'dinations, and Petaloo Blog Hop!


There is tons of inspiration and even prizes to win, so be sure to stop by the participating blogs all week long.

I had in mind originally to make cards using the Crate Paper Bundled Up collection as the colors went so well with those gorgeous Petaloo flowers and ribbons I received. I paired it with some Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock....


I scored the edges of my card after dry embossing some snowflakes on the edges. Core'dinations cardstock is my favorite cardstock to use when embossing. Here is a close-up of that embossing.


Supplies:
Xyron Mega Runner
Xyron 3/16" Adhesive Dots

Teresa Collins Plier Stapler
Core'dinations Whitewash collection

Core'dinations Dust Buddy & Sand-it Gadget
Petaloo Holiday Dazzlers Jewelled Florettes
Petaloo Fancy Trims Shades of Pink

Crate Paper Bundled Up pattern papers, ephemera die cuts, and PL cards
Sizzix Embossing folder

Then, I got to thinking how great a mini album would look instead of a card. I would have a larger area to work with for more embossing and room to showcase more flowers and ribbons. So here is the cover to my mini album I created ...


I love using my Xyron 9" Creative Station for adhering pages in my mini. No need to worry about pages coming undone later and with the Creative Station I get edge to edge coverage! It comes in handy for those smaller embellishments too...


I used the same technique as on my card to dry emboss and then score the edge. I just love the texture of the embossed trees and with Kraft core they really stand out.



There is some Petaloo Fancy Trim tucked in there as well as tied on my rings binding my album. I added lots more Dazzlers jewelled florettes and some gorgeous Darjeeling flowers. Xyron adhesive dots work great for adhering all those flowers!
