Xyron and Teresa Collins Designs - Day 4

Xyron and Teresa Collins Designs - Day 4

Are you ready for Day 4
First lets check out this amazing layout from Jamie Harder.

We love Jamie's simplistic style with just enough pow to enjoy the layout.
To see more of Jamie's work check out her blog at: 

Next up we have STACY RODRIGUEZ:

Hello everyone, Stacy here today sharing my creation using Teresa's Tell Your Story line of course with all of the AMAZING embellishments that go with this line and the fabulous Xyron products.

So you should all know that i'm a mini album and altered project girl....these are my two favorite things to create.  For this project I created a fun mini album with a super cool way to use twine to bind your album.  You also may want to head out to hubby's shed or garage and if he has any drywall mesh grab it, run to your studio and hide it cause you are going to want to keep it!!!

Okay so let's start with a photo of the complete cover. For the cover I cut two pieces of chipboard and cut the pattern paper to the same size.  I corner punched the two outside corners of both the chipboard and paper then ran the pattern paper through the Xyron Creatopia which makes this super fast and an easy way to adhere your paper to anything. I used the Xyron 510 or my fabulous Teresa Collins 150 for all of the smaller pieces. 

I will also give you a little close up pic for you to see all the detail on the cover.

Now for the fun binding technique...I did not come up with this technique but do have a utube video to share of Marion Smith walking you through this so YES you to can also give this a shot.  You can pause the video anytime to make sure you get it just right and believe me I did my far share of pausing :)  The inside of this album contains 11 pieces of pattern paper 12" x 8" in size and folded in yes that is 22 pages for you to save all of those great memories!  The chipboard cover is 8 1/2" x 6 1/2".

A close up of the binding.

This is what the inside of your pages will look like of course before you do all of your creating.

Here is the link to the utube video for you :)

I'm using this album for photos of everything that my daughter and her friends have done which is why this is My Story 2012.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope that you give this a try.  It would be a fabulous way to document anything!
