Love Journal with Xyron & Basic Grey

Hi there,

Today, I am sharing a tutorial on a journal that I created using Xyron and  Basic Grey's Dear Heart Collection. I love this romantic collection.  It's perfect for this time of year and the colors are so versatile. The papers worked beautifully as I layered this journal together effortlessly using Xyron.


Supplies
Journal
Trimmer
Scissors
Crotched Ribbon
Xyron Adhesive: Tape Runner, New Creative Station, Creatopia
3D Tape
Cropadile Corner Chomper
Sanding Bar

Instructions:
 

Step 1: Trim patterned paper (1st Layer) from the Basic Grey Collection down to 9 1/2 x 9 3/4. Run through the Xyron Creatopia Machine.
 Step 2: Trim patterned paper (2nd Layer) down to 6 1/2 x 9 3/4. Run through the Xyron Creatopia Machine.
 Step 3: Remove film from patterned papers and adhere layers to journal. Adhere the 1st layer to the back of the journal, overlapping the spine and securing approximately 2 1/2 inches of the patterned paper to the front cover. Adhere the 2nd layer to the front of the journal.


 




 Step 4: Run patterned paper layer through the Xyron New Creative Station and adhere to the front of the journal.


 
Step 5: Cut strips of coordinating patterns from the Basic Grey Collection. Using the Xyron tape runner, apply adhesive and adhere to the front of the journal.
 
Step 6: Cut journaling spots and desired prints from the Basic Grey Collection. Run through the New Xyron Creative Station.

Step 7: Create a focal layer by adhering stickers, journaling spots and desired prints from the Basic Grey Collection to a 5 x 6 piece of coordinating patterned paper.
 Step 8: Adhere 5 x 6 layer to journal using 3 D tape and sand edges of journal using a sanding bar.
 

Step 9: Add crocheted ribbon to the left side of journal and continue embellishing as desired.
