Happy Wednesday Little Birdies! Hope that you are tuning in to HSN today for all of the new 3 Birds Goodness happening there today! It’s Chasity here today with a peek into the nest, and my very messy, messy desk! But hey, who ever said that creativity is clean!?! (All of the other Birdies at the Nest will tell you that MY desk is perpetually a major disaster…)
But no time to tidy, I’m too excited to put this little green machine on my work desk! A huge thank you to our Xyron friends for sharing such an awesome tool with us!
It just so happens to be perfect timing to have this awesome adhesive tool, the Xyron Creative Station, with the launch of the new Midday Medley Paper pack with printed vellum. A perfect pair! Printed vellum is so beautiful, but sometimes poses a problem when trying to adhere it to another surface or paper. Because of its translucent appearance, most adhesives show through. BUT NOT TODAY! The Creative Station transfers a full coverage, seamless adhesive across the entire area of the paper! Magic! This tool was a real time saver while getting samples ready for the upcoming show!
I found the machine to be very easy to use; I love how the side panels fold in for storage! Clever!
Here you will see what the vellum looks like run through the machine. I like having the option of running small pieces, or large pieces through the same machine.
See how you can still see through the vellum paper without actually seeing the adhesive? WOW!
Next is the beginning of my layout for the HSN show, with the vellum adhered to the background paper.
This is the completed layout using the new Midday Medley Collection. I hope that you tune in today to HSN and see this layout in action! The new Midday Medley Collection products coordinate so you can craft with confidence no matter which products you snag for yourself!
DESIGNER TIP | I will leave you with a quick tip. The printed vellum papers in the Midday Medley Paper Pack make beautiful flower embellishments for projects! Hand cut the swirl shapes, or use your electronic cutting machine! I used a quilling tool to wrap the flower. The vellum holds its shape surprisingly well, even when you remove it from the quilling tool! A little glue to the base, press the center down and voila, elegant but easy vellum flower embellishments! Here’s a close up to show you just how fun these quilled vellum flowers can be! Hope you enjoy!
