Xyron, Simple Stories & May Arts

1:00 PM SharonCallisCrafts 9 Comments

Xyron has partnered with Simple Stories and May Arts all this week to bring you a fun Blog Hop full of Inspirations and a chance to win some crafty goodness!.  To follow the hop visit the Xyron Blog every day.

I am a huge fan of Simple Stories and am more than addicted to their Silhouette Studio designs so had a little play with some of the May Arts and Xyron product in my stash and have put together a little tutorial for you. 

It's a Lovely Ride!

Products Used

Foam Pads from Xyron Teresa Collins Adhesive Kit
May Arts Cut Outs Flower Ribbon
Crafter's Companion Kraft Card
Alabaster Photo Frame

To purchase Xyron products in the UK visit Crafter's Companion


Supplies at the ready

Emboss the A4 Kraft Card using the Embossallicious 'Dottie' Folder

Measure the inside aperture of the frame and cut the Kraft card to size and lightly brush the ink pad over the embossed surface.

Run the Kraft Card through the Xyron 9" Creative Station

Place firmly into the frame aperture

Using the Silhouette Cameo and the Simple Stories design print and cut out the design ready for your frame and put to one side

Chose your preferred paper for the inside of the frame, I love this page because the cut of piece will be used inside the aperture later

Run the cut centre piece through the Xyron 5" Creative Station and adhere it to the frame backing board. Remove the glass from the frame.

On the back of your cut out shape use the Foam Pads from the Teresa Collins Adhesive kit, cut to size if necessary

Fix in place in the centre of the frame ready for the finishing touches

Run all the ribbon and paper strips through the Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker ready for the project

Use the Xyron Adhesive dots on the leaves and flowers

Start by placing the Polka Dot ribbon down the rig hand side and layer the paper cut outs over it.  Finish by adding the leaves and flowers

The finished result !
