Blog hop Summer Fun with Xyron and Craftwell!



Hey everyone! If you follow me you know I do a tumbler of the month project with my Starbucks tumblers. I thought this blog hop was perfect to go with my new star flag themed tumbler this month.

To start my project I embossed one sheet of red, white and blue card stock using the WOOD GRAIN embossing folders. Then I used some white scrap paper and cut mini stars (photo of mini stars below) Once I embossed my blue paper, I cut the bases of my stars using three different dies - all at the same time! This is one of the perks of having a larger machine, you can cut many things all at the same time!!



Here you can see some of the supplies I used. I trimmed all of my red and white stripes 1/4" then adhered them to my star using my Xryon 1/4" tape runner. Then I adhered all of my mini white stars using my Teresa Collins sticker maker. It's so great for those little pieces!!



I embossed a piece of dark metal gray paper using the startburst folder, traced my template onto the paper and trimmed it up, then adhered all of my finished stars on to my starburst paper.



I love how the wood grain embossed paper looks like it is moving, it's just perfect!!

  7. Your old blog link was what shows as the link. Since you changed blogs 6 months ago, maybe the new link should be posted and you could have a link to your old on your new site for anyone who wants to look at archives. Loved the tumbler projects.
