Xyron, Petaloo and Core'dinations - Day One and a Giveaway!

What a way to kick off our Fall blog hops - with not one but TWO partners! This week the Xyron Design team is making some fabulous projects using Core'dinations Cardstock and Petaloo flowers and embellishments - and we can't wait to share what they've created.

Want to make a fun and festive Halloween banner but not crazy about the traditional colors/themes?  Rachel McAffee shows us how to create something gorgeous using unexpected embellishments. She came up with the clever idea to use vintage Halloween photos of kids in costume and shares a tutorial on her blog today.  We love everything about this!


Tags are a must as we move in to the holiday season - and Stacy Rodriguez shares this fall themed tag that would be perfect tied to a bottle of wine or a homemade treat.  It is a gift in itself!


Angela Holt turned a few sheets of cardstock and some flowers in to an incredible mini album that would be treasured by anyone who received it.  Imagine the possibilities with this little treasure!  Angela shares a full video tutorial on her blog today - this would be perfect gift for a wedding or baby shower!



Loving these projects?  Looking for more inspiration?  Head on over to the Core'dinations and Petaloo blogs to see the magic their designers have created - and BOTH blogs are giving away prizes!  We want to help you create your own fabulous projects too so every day this week we are giving away a prize pack with a Core'dinations paper pad, a pack of Petaloo flowers, and a Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker!  Just leave a comment here and we will announce the winner on our Facebook Page tomorrow.  Happy Monday!
