This stunning mini album from Pam Bray would be the perfect way to record a weekend getaway or as a thank you after staying with a friend.  Pam shares a tutorial with us on her blog today - so many fun techniques!



Want to create a home decor piece but don't have a canvas?  A piece of chipboard will work just as well! Yvonne Yam shows us how on her blog - we love the whimsical feel of this project!

Xyron and Paper House - Day Four and a Giveaway!


The Xyron Design Team only has one day left to celebrate our "Great Outdoors" blog hop with our friends at Paper House and today we are getting back to where it all started - cards and scrapbook layouts!

We love how this layout from Karen Jiles captures the rugged outdoors with just a hint of girly girl!  :)  The textures and colors and techniques come together beautifully - and Karen shares a tutorial with us on her blog today.



Since some parts of the country are *gasp* already getting some...we're tickled that Angela Holt created a snow themed card with her Paper House goodies! On her blog Angela shares a tutorial for adding that special touch to any embellishments - what a treat this would be to receive!




If you are loving these projects as much as we are then head on over to the Paper House blog for even MORE great ideas - and they are giving away some of your favorite Xyron goodies as well!  We want to share some of the Paper House products we are loving with you - so all week long we'll be having giveaways here on our blog as well.  Just leave a comment and one lucky winner is going to receive this Paper House prize pack - we'll announce the winner on the Xyron Facebook Page tomorrow.  Good luck!

Xyron and Paper House - Day Three and a Giveaway!


We are halfway through the Xyron Design Team "Great Outdoors" blog hop with our friends at Paper House - and today it is all about Fall!  Here is where we admit that it never even OCCURRED to us to use "outdoor themed" papers for Fall projects...clearly we need to get out more.  ;)  Thank goodness for our Design Team!

Looking for a way to brighten up your Thanksgiving table?  How about DIY napkin rings from Stephanie Chan!  The festive colors and patterns in these papers will add the perfect touch to your holiday - Stephanie shares a quick tutorial on her blog today (this would be a fun project to do with the kiddos)!



One of the things we love about Fall home decor is that unlike many other "seasonal" projects it can hang in your home from the beginning of September all the way through the end of November.  This gorgeous plaque from Sharon Callis is the perfect example - imagine this in your entryway or living room!  Sharon shares a tutorial with us on her blog today...just in time to make it for Thanksgiving as a hostess gift!



If you are loving these projects as much as we are then head on over to the Paper House blog every day this week for even MORE great ideas - and they are giving away some of your favorite Xyron goodies as well!  We want to share some of the Paper House products we are loving with you - so all week long we'll be having giveaways here on our blog as well.  Just leave a comment and one lucky winner is going to receive this Paper House prize pack - we'll announce the winner on the Xyron Facebook Page tomorrow.  Good luck!

Day two of the Xyron Design Team "Great Outdoors" blog hop with our friends at Paper House is here...and today we are taking "themed" paper projects to a whole new level!  Let your imagination run wild!

This card from Joy Dickson will make you look at themed paper in a whole new light - you would never guess that this is outdoor themed paper!  On her blog today Joy shares a tutorial to create this beauty yourself...this makes us want to go through our stash of "paper I don't know what to do with" and start crafting!



Have a kid (big or little) who loves the outdoors?  Then this party ensemble from Rachel McAffee is for you!  It can be so hard to find masculine themed projects and products - what a great way to put the special touch on a party while still having a manly feel!  ;)  Rachel shares a quick tutorial on her blog today.
