Xyron & Paper House Blog Hop!

Hi there,

Oh what fun the Xyron Design Team has been having this week blog hopping with Paper House. View our team's designs on the Xyron blog, here.


 
 
I really enjoy working with Paper House papers. The papers are medium weight, perfect for layering and distressing, and absolutely wonderful with Xyron products. The papers are also themed, which makes creating so much fun.  
 
I created a fun Nature themed layout using the Outdoors Paper House  pad and stickers.  I also used my 9" Xyron Creative Station and Teresa Collins Mega Runner. My tutorial is shown below… 
 
Supplies
Patterned Paper: 1st Layer (1) 8 1/2 x 8 1/2, 2nd Layer (1) 8 1/4 x 8 1/4 
Photo
(1) Corrugated Board (9 X 9)
Stickers
Vintage Photo Ink
Foam Tool
Paint
Xyron Adhesive: 9" Creative Station
Distressing Tool
Trimmer
Pins


 
Step 1: Distress corrugated board and apply paint to edges. Set aside to dry.

 
 Step 2: Distress edges of patterned paper using distressing tool. Use finger to enhance the distressed edges.

 
 
Step 3: Run distressed patterned papers through Xyron 9" Creative Station to apply adhesive to papers.
 
 Step 4: Adhere 1st layer of patterned paper to painted corrugated board.


Step 5: Adhere 2nd layer of patterned paper to 1st layer and enhance distressed areas as needed.


 
 Step 6 :Apply adhesive to photo and photo mat using Teresa Collins Mega Runner.



 
Step 7: Apply stickers and matted photo to layout.

 
Step 8: Continue embellishing until desired look is achieved.
 
I hope that this layout inspires you to pull out the outdoor photos and have some creative fun. 

Thanks so much for visiting today...:)

Hugs,
Karen
