And do not forget to head over to the Xyron blog for MORE inspiration AND a giveaway!  AND we have a giveaway for our Facebook Fans, too! CLICK HERE to enter to win over there and keep reading on how to win on our blog, too.

Let’s start today off with festive layout from Tim Holz Seasonal Kraft Core with Designer Suzanna Lee:

For those of you who have followed my blog, you’ve already heard my rave review of the Xyron MegaRunner. You can read all about it here. Having had the chance to use my MegaRunenr A LOT more since that review, I am still a big fan! The cartridges are so easy to just drop in and get scrapping. You don’t have to rely on that one friend who threads it for you, nor do you have to keep re-threading. Big bonuses! The Create-A-Sticker “X” has been sitting on my desk for AGES. I think it’s the one adhesive that still remains from early, early days. It’s the tried and true work horse for letters (like the title on this layout) and smaller embellishements (like the pumpkins, ribbon and burlap). New “wows” that I got to play with in the making of this layout with are the 3/16 inch dots and 1/2 inch double sided tape, each with their own environmentally friendly dispenser. The double sided tape is fantastic when you’re using Core’dinations products in that sometimes the sanded Core, no matter how clean that Dust Buddy gets it, can be a little more resistant to stick and bond to more Core. Not the case with Xyron’s double sided tape! Thanks Xyron for some innovative, earth friendly and reliable adhesives!

And next up we have a Designer Gail Linder with a GREAT layout featuring the Xyron Mega Runner.

Inspired by an advert I saw online, I wanted to create a background with even strips of cardstock. Once I chose my colors and cut my strips, it was so quick and easy to adhere them to a background cardstock using the Xyron Mega Runner!
To add interest and texture, one of my strips is the gorgeous Tillie Dot embossed cardstock. Before all the strips were adhered, I gave them all a slight sand to reveal a bit of their core with my Sand it Gadget.Finally, I wanted to add a large ‘2’ to my background but didn’t want to detract from my strips so I simply hand-stitched the outline of the number.

Happy Father’s Day Week!

This week we are celebrating Fathers and Family here on the blog!

We are kicking it off with two layouts from Debbie Standard. Debbie packs her layouts FULL of  amazing details so grab your coffee and be ready to get inspired!

For this first layout, Debbie sanded a sheet of My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions.  It looks beautiful with the bright blue embossed Core Essentials.  And check out the fun details from the 4×6″ mini My Mind’s Eye collection pack!  They go perfectly together. And of course those fun photos of the kids playing around  with their Dad. They just make you smile!

Next up, Debbie shares with us another layout about family. For this layout Debbie scored her Whitewash background . Such an easy and quick way to make your own background!

The flowers are stamped. All you need to do is turn your Core’dinations over and stamp on the backside for a nice, smooth finish.

AND…yes, there is more!  Debbie printed her clouds from her computer using a digital image directly on some Whitewash and the sanded.
