Xyron and Basically Bare - Day One (and a Giveaway!)

Welcome to the Xyron/Basically Bare blog hop! Basically Bare is our newest partner and we couldn't be more excited...Basically Bare products are PERFECT for Xyron machines and our Design Teams have created some fabulous projects to show you just what we mean.  Today - we're all about the cards!

Sharon Callis created two GORGEOUS cards that are completely different!  Basically Bare products are just so incredibly versatile you will be thrilled with the different projects you can create. On Sharon's blog this morning she created a stunning calendar mini album - it would be the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list this year!

This card from Jessica Barnett makes me SO happy - just look at the detailing and her use of patterns. I also love that the sentiment could be switched out for Mother's Day, Thinking of You, or any other theme.  Jessica also did a Christmas mini album on her blog today that is so darn cute - I can just see it sitting on my mantel this season!

We want to give you a little something to help you with your own card projects - so every day this week we will be giving away a Xyron Mega Runner!  Just leave a comment here and one lucky winner will be selected and announced on my Facebook page tomorrow morning (we will alternate entry opportunites between the blog and the FB page so everyone has a chance to enter). Also be sure to stop by the Basically Bare blog for even more great project ideas, and stay tuned the rest of the week for more creativity from our Design Teams!  Happy Monday!
