Embelling with Xyron and Craftwell

Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Suzanna Lee Cycle 11

Gorgeous layout by Suzanna Lee using Xyron product is below! 

Loving our day 2 of Xyron & Craftwell Inspiration!

Hey there Craftwell fans! Today Xyron and Craftwell adhere together to create a sticky situation layout! LOL!

One of the things you will notice about my layouts is that I often hide my journaling. Not because I don't want you read what I have to say but merely because, even on a 12x12 page, there just isn't room for all of what I want to say. I want the pictures to be the primary focus and the story to accompany them but not be distracting. In order to accomplish that on this layout, with such a large picture, I used some Xyron 1/2 inch double-sided tape to create a pocket for the Project Life card I used for journaling.

I laid the Project Life card on the background patterned paper and put three stripes of tape for the side edges and bottom of the pocket. Peel off the top backing paper and then stick your picture on top! Viola! A journaling card pocket. Some washi folded over the card edge creates a visual pull tab.

You will see that this particular card is empty, void of journaling... I WILL be filled shortly. I have been working on my son (the boy with glasses) to begin telling his own story. He is old enough (12 years old) that he can identify his feelings and speak from the heart. He is far less intimidated by that proposition knowing that the words he shares are behind the picture and not visible to the world.

Additional Xyron products I used on this page include the 3 inch Sticker Maker and the Tape Runner. The 3 inch sticker maker is perfect for running mutliple embellishments through at once and save the waste of the pre and post "roll" tape. In this picture you will see the tag and stars that I cut using my Craftwell Cut'N Boss and Craftwell/Teresa Collins dies. One pass through the 3 inch Sticker Maker and I'm done!

Craftwell/Teresa Collins dies are the star feature on this layout! LOL! Here's the sandwich combo you need to cut out the Lucky tag and stars as seen using your Cut'N Boss;

I commented many a time on my personal blog about the Mega Runner by Xyron. It wasn't until recently that I discovered that the Tape Runner is virtually a smaller version that is much more portable for scrapping on the road! While I love my Mega Runner immensely, it doesn't fit in my tool bag so inevitably, it gets forgotten. The smaller size of the Tape Runner means the same dot adhesive I love that fits in my tool caddy! Score!!

I think I'll stick to my Xyron adhesive! LOL! Don't Xyron and Craftwell work well together?!

  1. Great layout Suzanna! I love the way the journaling is hidden, and the washi tape makes a great pull tab idea! I didn't know about the Xyron double sided tape runner... I'll have to look for that! Awesome Craftwell dies too!
