Xyron and Teresa Collins Designs - Day 1


Teresa Collins Design Team was thrilled to partner up with The Xyron Design Team for the first time - and the projects they've created are gorgeous! Every day this week we'll feature a project from one or two of our DT members using Xyron products along side Teresa Collins Products - I know you are just going to love the results!

First we wanted to share some inspiration from Rachel McAffee:

Tell Your Story Gift Bags!


Next we have a wonderful tutorial by Cheri Piles:

I am so excited to be able to participate in the Xyron Blog hop this week! I just LOVE my sticker maker, it is one of my favorite "GO TO" tools!


I made this great little pumpkin home decor piece for one of my shelves in my home office. I love to change things up with the seasons. I started with a 4x5 piece of canvas and painted it a Pearl White (I just love a little shine!) Then I added 3 3/4 x 4 3/4 piece of Pennants paper (back) and outlined it with Black ink. 

I used the large oval frame from the Tell Your Story Stamp set to make the pumpkin, I stamped the frame onto the following papers: Damask (back), Frames (back) & Cards (back). Then I tore them all at the same time so my pieces would line up when I put them back together. I tried to tear them with a rounded shape to create a Pumpkin "feel". For the stem and the leaf I cut two of the shapes from the Pennant paper and trimmed the leaf until it had the shape I wanted. I then ran them through the sticker maker!

I really wanted to create more "texture" to the pumpkin so I added some crackle glaze and it created some bubbles and a little crackle in spots, just the look I was after! I used last months free download for the stamp maker and made the Autumn Splendor stamp for the bottom. I added the blue scalloped chipboard piece to the right and trimmed to size. Then I added the orange dots scallop borders to the top and left sides. 

I hope you enjoy the blog hop this week and please come back to check out what the team has in store for you!

  52. Gorgeous projects as usual... I am always impressed with your papers and have been hunting all over the net to find all the old ones, can't get enough of them. They are without a doubt the best quality bar none. On top of that they are always incredibly beautiful, and look way better in person than online. Would love any prize from TC!
