Xyron and Perfect Paper Crafting Day Three - and a Giveaway!


We are halfway through our week with the Xyron and Perfect Paper Crafting (PPC) design teams and today we've got some fun projects that are sure to inspire you!

We love shaker box cards - but they can be a pain in the patooty to make!  With the PPC Perfect Layers Mini you can create your own - and Joy Dickson shows you how with a tutorial on her blog today.  This is just as cute as it can be!



Do you have leftover Project Life or Albums Made Easy cards and don't know what to do with them?  How about a layout?  On her blog today Shannon Morgan shows us how to make our own and shares some cool tips for using the PPC Perfect Airbrush to create your own background paper and bring color to your project.

  4. Love the fishing card. The men in the family love to fish so this would work well for them when they are off on one of their "boys" fishing trips. the album page is very pretty.
    thanks for sharing.

  7. I've been using Xyron products for almost 15 years. Yes, I own the very first version of the blue xyron machine. I'm so thankful that although they've updated the look they still take the same cartridges. I also own 2 of the smaller Xyron machines for smaller items. I really don't know what I'd do without those products. It's wonderful to see this company growing and offering more tools to help those of us that craft in any form. I can't wait to see the tutorial for the shaker card. I made one looooong ago using sand and small shells. It was a bit messy so I'm sure I'll learn a thing or too.
    Thank you so much for offering the give away. I'd love to win something since luck isn't usually with me.

  25. Wonderful projects today! I had not thought of that way of making a shaker. Impression Obsession sells thin plastic pieces which work perfect, although I only have one size. I am getting lots of good ideas this week. :) Thanks for sharing.
