Xyron, Simple Stories and May Arts - Day Four and a Giveaway!


We've only got one day left of the Xyron blog hop with May Arts and Simple Stories - and it has been an amazing week!  We hope you have discovered some great projects and techniques for your Summer crafting.

A handmade baby gift is a keepsake that any mother would cherish - and on her blog today Denise Hahn shares a tutorial for creating this precious treasure box.  What a wonderful way to let a new mom know you are thinking of her and sharing her joy!




Are you guilty of not scrapping photos of your sweetheart?  The Story of Us collection from Simple Stories is PERFECT for capturing those every day moments - and Stacy Rodriguez created this beauty doing just that!



This layout from Shannon Morgan just screams Summer!  We love the colors and textures and embellishments and the fun techniques she used to tie it all together.  So bright and cheery and full of fun!



Leave a comment here on the blog throughout the week - we are going to select one lucky winner from all comments to receive a big ol' prize pack that includes a Xyron 2.5" Create-a-Sticker, a Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine collection pack and a spool of May Arts ribbon (winner's choice)!  We'll announce the winner on our Facebook Page on Saturday.

We've got even better news - head on over to the Simple Stories blog and the May Arts blog - not only do they have some fabulous creations to share with you, they are giving away the same prize pack!  That is three chances to win a box full of goodies that will bring your Summer crafting to a whole new level!

  9. The embellished box is wonderful. If you make it for yourself - you could start with some of your keepsakes and then add more into the dividers as time goes by. Great idea.
    The layouts are beautiful. Love the way the picture in the first was highlighted. The second is so bright and colorful. Great projects.
