Xyron and StencilGirl Blog Hop - Day Five and a Giveaway!

It has been such a wonderful week! The Xyron Design Team has been incredibly inspired by the StencilGirl goodies they've been working with - many of them said it was their first time trying stencils and now they are hooked! We hope you are too!

Look at the detailing and texture on this incredible card from Gini Cagle!  On her blog today she shares a tutorial on how to achieve the same look with any stencil in your collection.  We love to try new techniques!

Stencils are the perfect partner for a plain ol' sheet of white cardstock - just a little mist or paint or ink and voila!  Custom patterned paper!  Cari Locken did exactly that on this cute layout and gives you a few how-to tips on her blog today.

A Christmas canvas made out of pencils?  Yes please!  Check out this super cool project from Jennifer Priest and the intricate detailing that the stencils gave her flower petals.  On her blog today she has some tips for creating this yourself - we know what we'll be trying this weekend!

You have got to head over to the StencilGirl blog today - not only do they have some wonderful projects, but they are having a great giveaway as well!  Thanks so much to their Design Team for an inspiring week!

We are rounding out the week with a giveaway of our own - leave a comment here and one lucky winner is going to win a Xyron Mega Runner, a Xyron Glue Stick for Corners, and two StencilGirl stencils!  We'll announce the winner Monday morning on our Facebook page.  Good luck and have a great weekend!
