Roadies, we are here (a little late because I thought today was Tuesday) for Day 3 of the Xyron and Maya Road blog swap fun! Remember to check out this post about the prize pack you could win. Here is a look at what we are giving away:
I'm excited to share an Autumnal card with you today, using the following awesome products from Xyron and some fun things from Maya Road.
When I first started scrapping, 7 years ago, I found Xyron adhesives and you can still find me reaching for these great products. They just work! And my old layouts from back when I started? They are still stuck together, so I count that as a good sign that Xyron products are in it for the long haul!
I then used the Xyron Glue Stick that has the coolest design, it's wedge-shaped so it won't roll off the table (HOW NEAT IS THAT?!?!), and glued some paper to the back of the frame.
I had punched and cut a number of small leaves and did what any smart crafter would do, I ran them through the mini X to make stickers! So much easier to attach small things to your projects this way!
Next, I used the Adhesive Dots to attach the frame to the card. I really appreciate the design of these dots, they are easy to pull out a few, I don't worry about losing the packaging, and they fit nicely next to my other Xyron adhesives. And they stick something amazing, always a good thing.
Once my frame was wrapped in some Maya Road Paper Twine in Earth and stuck firmly in place, I could start adding all the leaf stickers I'd made.
I stamped and embossed part of the sentiment with our Picture Perfect Camera Stamp set and tied on my favorite camera, a Vintage Oh Snap Camera from the Summer CHA release. I was going for the "Smile for the camera" feel with this card, because I loved the idea in the quote.
It's easy to get that feel I was going for, we've got plenty of awesome products that feature cameras of all varieties!
Thank you for checking out the Xyron and Maya Road blog swap, don't worry, tomorrow's post is all ready to go, you won't have to wait for someone who forgets! But I hope you've enjoyed this, even if it was late.
