Happy Earth Day folks! Today up over at Kiwi Lane Designs is a fun layout I made with Zero pictures. We were lucky enough to have access to My Mind’s Eye Now and Then Collection and using some new templates I just went nuts making a camping themed page. Head over and check out more of this page and the C-U-T-E templates that made all this possible!
Until next time,

Woot! Today is the day for the Paper House Productions “Hop, Skip & Jump” Kids Blog Hop this weekend! The Design Team has some fun kiddo inspired creations cooked up that you will not want to miss! There are amazing goodies up for grabs that are just must haves for any crafty stash.
How to ENTER:
Easy peasy lemon squeezy just like this fun project I made with the Owls Hoot Collection! All I did was reclaim a tabletop house shaped bookcase I found on clearance for $5 at Target and turn it into a dog house for my kiddo’s American Girl pets! My kiddos love owls so this collection came in handy since I made all their American Girl Doll bedding with owl fabric. Love when crafty kismet happens!
What I did was measure and cut down the design paper and attache using my Xyron Mega Runner and for the ribbon, I cut down American Crafts ribbon ran it though my 5 inch Creative Station and dressed the internal and external edges. I traced out some flower stencils using Kiwi Lane Designs Tiny Accents, inked the edges and ran through my Xyron Creative Station and attached to the roof. I dressed the house with flower accents I had on hand and the collection 3D stickers and Puffy stickers.
Now how is that for turning $5 and some cute crafty supplies into something that will be cherished and played with for many play-times to come?
Now make sure to hop through each designer down the list to be eligible for the most entries! When you’re done, just hop over to Paper House Blog and let us know! The hop will be running all weekend, so you have until Sunday at 11:59pm EST to get your entries in!

Happy Hump Day! Xyron is hosting a “Not Xyron, but Should Be” Blog Hop this week. The idea of this blog hop was take craft projects posted on Pinterest where Xyron products could be the star, but was not and make Xyron a star with our own spin on the project. I chose coasters!
It wasn’t a huge stretch for me since I had some extra limbs laying around from a recent tree removal that I have been wanting to slice up and turn into coasters AND that is exactly what I did!
It was so simple to make by having my Xyron 5 inch Creative Station w Laminate/Permanent Adhesive and Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker at arms reach!
Here is how I did it (full supply list provided at the end of this post):
Measure the wood slices and make templates according to the sizes you need (I used my Cricut Expressions and cartridge Plaintain School Book Circle cut). Using cork, burlap, and linen trace and cut out circles.
Once all circles are cut, run each though the Xryon 3 inch Sticker Maker, burnish, peel and stick on top of the wood slices. Yes! It is that easy! Now you could just stop there, but why . . .?
Using some favorite scrapbooking paper, punches, ink and stamps and glue to create a fun embellishment for each coaster. I happened to use American Crafts 6×6 Neapolitan paper pad, cut out the mason jars and punched some coordinating circles, inked the edges and uses sentiment stamps from Joy’s Life – Everyday Occasions stamp set.
Burnish,free cut the embellishment, peel off the backing and stick!
This will allow each to stick to the coaster while protecting the paper embellishment from the job hazards of coasters!
Genius right? Not really, but I think it is really cool that Xryon makes products like the Laminating/Permanent Adhesive or my cute coaster embellishments would be soggy before my first refreshing sip.

Happy Spring! As most of the country begins to thaw from the harshness Old Man Winter dealt out this year, I decided my first project for Paper House was putting to use the rustic, bright and cheery Garden Collection!
Combining the collection with a reclaimed old pallet turned picture frame and glittering some wooden letter using my 5 inch Xyron Creative Station, I turned it into something that echoes the sentiments of spring!
Head over to Paper House to check out all the deets!
