I admit...I am a lazy crafter. I want things to look as good as possible with as little effort as humanly needed. Enter the Xyron Creatopia Border Patternz and Cutz Component! These are AWESOME!!! No more getting out a separate embosser or trying to cut a straight line with decorative edge scissors - this is an embosser, scissor, scorer, perforator (if that is even a word) and trimmer combined!!
Here is a little tip I didn't share on the video - the Border Patternz aren't just for borders! Once your rollers are on the component you can slide them up and down the bar so you can place your embossing anywhere on the page! Or...slide the rollers in increments and create an ENTIRE PAGE of embossing! So cool!
Need a little eye candy? Check out my buddy Chris Potter demonstrating the Cutz Component! These blades work like a dream on paper, transparencies, vellum, and even thin chipboard!
