Xyron Imaginisce Blog Swap


This week Xyron and Imaginisce have teamed up for a fun blog swap.   I had a great time working with the Imaginisce Childhood Memories collection.  The bright colors and whimsical designs were really fun...
I particularly liked the Imaginisce bicycle stamp in this collection and thought it would make a great card center.  I also really loved the red striped paper and made sure I used some red Ranger Archival Ink to match.  I stamped the image of the bike on to plain white cardstock, then I used my circle cutter to cut around it.  I debated on whether I should color the bike, but in the end I like the simple image in red ink.  Finally, I backed the image with a Little Yellow Bicycle Naturals burlap circle and added some Maya Road Twine.
For the bicycle flag, I used a Little Yellow Bicycle stick pin and some jewel stickers so it looks like the Memories sentiment is part of the bike flag. I was able to run the whole burlap circle through my Xyron 2.5 Create-a-Sticker machine to give it a sticky back which made it a lot easier to adhere to the card.
These little clouds are really cute stickers.  I just added some handcut banners for a little added interest.

This home d├ęcor project was really easy to make.  I had an old 7 Gypsies Small Printer's Tray lying around, so I thought it would be fun to use the 4 x 6 journal cards in the Imaginsce Childhood Memories collection and some of the Sticker Stackers to make this project.   I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the patterned paper to the tray.
For something a little out of the ordinary, I stuck some of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Memo Pins in the top of the tray and ran a little miniature clothesline.  Then I cut out some of the Polaroid sentiments and hung them up with the Little Yellow Bicycle Naturals mini clothespins.  I like how both the Polaroids and the pins have sentiments on them.
I stripped down some of the sticker stackers so I could add the little images to the Printer's Tray.  They were the perfect size without the rest of their backing and then I could customize the patterned papers.

Impressive interaction with the clients is valuable for the customers as well as for the organization as you show in your good and beautiful images as presentation with identification decals gives more attention to the people and gives them of excellent assistance.
