    I LOVE this technique and I’ve seen it before but I still haven’t broken down and bought a label maker 🙂 I know what I am asking Santa for!

  34. I`ve used this technique several times, and I love it! I would love to have a label maker with the interchangable wheels to get different fonts… 🙂

  35. Heather DG says:

    What a beautiful layout – and I love the circle punch on the accordion fold fan, it really just adds that extra touch!

    what a cool technique!!!

  38. Denise C. says:

    Love how you used your label maker on the your paper! It looks so cool!

  39. cort says:

    Ohh love the idea of a label maker with the Core’dinations line. I don’t like my hand that is such a cool idea. “Dear Santa, is it too late to ask for a label maker for Christmas?”

  40. When I saw this technique in your tutorials, I immediately went hunting for my old label maker. I found it, but also found why I’d finally gotten a digital one–the old one doesn’t work! I’ve been dying to try this technique–I even asked for a label maker for Christmas. I’m thinking I’m not getting it, so I hope I can win one instead.

  41. Heather Robertson says:

    I LOVE using my label maker but it’s wearing out. LOVE, love how the heart is made up of cardstock dymo strips – what a great idea

    Love how the label maker leaves and embossed effect on the cardstock – so cool!

  43. Deb Long says:

    Awesome project. That is too cool with the label maker – I would be so excited to win this!!

  44. Sue Stultz says:

    The items shown today are awesome. I love the fonts that are used and would really enjoy using a label maker. Hope I win one.

  45. Tona says:

    I love this technique! It looks great & would be fun to do.

  46. Linda Beeson says:

    Wowie, I can’t get over all of the amazing details! The “ho-ho” heart is the best not to mention the other techniques used.

  47. Ellis says:
