Teresa Collins and Xyron

Hey there! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I am so excited to share todays projects with you! I had the fabulous opportunity as part of the Xyron Design Team to partner up with Teresa Collins! SQUEEL!! I absolutely ADORE  TC products! The collection I got to play with is the Tell Your Story collection, and it is absolutely GORGEOUS!! I could have created for weeks with this kit! The colors are stunning, and not my usual colors, so it was nice to play with!! Well, I use teal a LOT, but not in combination with a peach/coral color.
Anyway, enough talking... time to show you what I created!! :)

Love You Card and Gift Box
This I think is my favorite that I created. I ADORE the frame! It was part of the Teresa Collins paper! I fussy cut around it and adhered it to my card with a bit of foam to five it dimension!! Then I created a gift box to go with it using Spellbinders Square Bracket Box die set!!

A Moment In Time
This simple card kind of came about by accident! :) I had my stripes lined up to adhere across, when they went all askew on me... I kind of liked it!! So I played around a bit more and this is what I ended up with! A happy accident! :)
I love depth to my cards, and this one is no exception. Although the basic shape is rectangle, I still popped them using foam for that extra definition.

The Meaning Of Life
I just could not go without creating a scrapbook page with this kit. There are so many beautiful patterns! And the cardstock stickers amke creating SO easy!!

In creating this page, I used some chipboard frames (I can NOT remember the manufacturer of these... possibly Creative Imaginations???) One I left plain and inked lightly. The other I covered with newspaper print paper from Teresa's kit. I applied Xyron Mega runner adhesive to the chipboard and stuck the paper to it! Then I cut out using a craft knife! So easy! And I love the look!!
