Teresa Collins/CardMaker/Xyron Blog Hop

Hi there,

It's Blog Hop time. Xyron is teaming up with Teresa Collins and CardMaker for a fun and creative blog hop. I am sharing a layout that I created using some wonderful Teresa Collins product.  The name of the collection is "You Are My Happy." I love this collection.  I decided to add a mixed media element to the design to compliment the patterned papers. I used my Creatopia Machine and 3/8 Adhesive Dots to create this layout. The collection is super fun to work with and perfect for girly layouts. I am including a tutorial below. Take a peek...:)


Creatopia Xyron Machine

Xyron 3/8 Adhesive Dots

Patterned Paper
Canvas Paper
Gelatos (Peach, Metallic Melon, Light Pink)
Molding Paste
Craft Knife
Water Mister
Foam Brush
Crocheted Ribbon


Step One: Apply Gesso to canvas paper using foam brush. Let dry.

Step Two: Lay Stencil over gesso’d canvas paper and apply molding paste to paper covering the entire canvas paper. Lift Stencil off and let dry. Note: Place stencil in water immediately after use and clean for future use. The molding paste dries quickly.

Step Three: Apply Gelatos to top of canvas paper and mist water. Continue applying gelatos and misting water until you have the desired color combo and look.

Step Four: Apply gelatos to edges of all layers of patterned paper and canvas paper. Rub the edges to blend.

Step Five: Run papers through Creatopia Machine to apply adhesive. The adhesive application will be edge to edge.

Step Six: Adhere canvas paper to patterned paper.

Step Seven: Adhere crocheted ribbon to the back of patterned paper strip and add to canvas layer.

Step Eight: Add matting to photo and adhere to layout.

Step Nine: Add pins to the layout using mounting tape as an anchor and adhere flowers using 3/8 Adhesive Dots.  Note: I lightly applied some gesso to the pearls and pins, let them dry and then applied gelatos to them.

Oh Karen, this page is just brimming with awesomeness!! I LOVE the hearts and I just ordered a similar heart stencil so I can try to recreate this gorgeous look (giving you full credit for my inspiration of course!) and OMOGOSH, I must tell you I've had a ton of pearlized heart pins forever and a day because I never know how to use em, until now! Yay! Thank you so much!!! This LO is gorgeous and the photo is beautiful too!! Hugs and have a happy day!
