How To Make Cute Easy Magnets

Coloring is a fun pass time for me and since I am kinda too old to be hanging my coloring pages on the fridge, I found a great alternative. Thanks to Xyron and Derwent Academy!


I have had a bunch of coloring books from Leisure Arts and they have a lot of images that can be fussy cut out so they were perfect for what I wanted to do.


I then started coloring in some images with my Derwent Academy Twin-Tip Markers and Derwent Academy Art Markers.


Once colored I fussy cut them out and ran them through my Xyron Creative Station Lite with the 5" Laminate & Magnetic Refill.


This is what it will look like after running through the Xyron Creative Station and then I fussy cut the flowers out again.
Fussy cutting is not one of my favorite things to do and while cutting the flowers out again for the second time I realized I could have saved myself a step by just roughly cutting the flowers out, ran them through the Xyron Creative Station and then did the fine tune fussy cutting afterward. O-well, lesson learned. ;)


My daughter ended up liking these so much that she colored some for herself and took them to school to decorate the inside of her school locker with.

Chills & Thrills Halloween Shaker Card with Video Tutorial

Hello, crafty friends! I love shaker cards but I really don't make them all that often. I was looking around my craft room and found some googly eyes and thought those would be fun in a shaker card. So, I took out my inks from Imagine and this is what I came up with, kinda rusty on my shaker card skills but it was still fun to make.


Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card.

The googly eyes mixed with the beads are kinda fun in there. What do you think? I also really love the colors of the eery sky and the shimmer that the Delicata Black Shimmer gives the bat.

How To Save Your Misti Grid Paper Pad



Hi all! Does your Misti grid paper look like you've been using it as a stamp scratchpad? Well, mine did and I was down to my last few sheets and didn't want to buy more.


So to save my Misti Grid Paper I laminated my last few pieces with the Xyron 9" Double Sided Laminate Refill.


Watch my video tutorial below to see how to do it.

Now that it is laminated all I have to do is wipe off the ink from it.  Great solution for the crafter on a budget, like me! :)

Beautiful Butterfly Thank You Card

Hey, everyone! Today I am sharing how I created a pretty iridescent embellishment using Creative Medium from Imagine that is perfect for cards, scrapbook layouts and much more. Plus, I show how I  used the negative space from my die cut to use as a stencil to make a fun background.


Watch my video tutorial below to see how I created my card.

Here is a close up of the iridescent Creative Medium in Purple using a Spellbinders Butterfly die. Love how it turned out and the pretty iridescent look on the black cardstock.



The sentiment is from the Joy Clair Every Day Sentiments Stamp Set. There is a sentiment for almost all occasions in this set, it is a must have!
