Out On A Limb + Xyron

Welcome to the final day of the 
Co Blog Hop! 
Both companies are offering some fun prizes, so stop by and leave a comment :)

I have two double-page layouts to share today using Xyron products and
pre-cut kits from Out On A Limb (sister company to Miss Kate Cuttables!)
My intention with both kits was to use all of the components with just a touch
of added embellishments...I think it shows just how far each kit will go.

For this layout, I used a border punch on the bottom of the green cardstock vs.
cutting the paper into a wave.  Each kit comes with placement instructions, but I like
to move things around...either way, you will come out with a fun and original layout!

For all of the photos and mats,  used the 1/4" Xyron High Tack Adhesive Tape.

I had the perfect camping pictures for this next kit, so I was quite excited!

For the title, I used the Xyron Creative Station since the pieces were larger.
For the other pieces, I initiated the Xyron 1.5" and 3" Sticker Makers...they're
the ideal adhesive for the intricate die cuts from Miss Kate's or OOAL!

That's all from me!  You can see lots more inspiration by visiting the two
sponsoring blogs beginning May 12th through today.


  1. Cute pages. The
    kits make it so
    easy to create!

  2. Two cute layouts, love your extra touches.

  3. Cute cute layouts .... love them both!

  4. Cute photos! They go perfect with the Princess layout.

  5. Both are so wonderful! I love the super fun bar-b-que spread and it makes me want summer to be here like, yesterday!! And what a sweet princess page. I like to play around with layout placement too but I do like the providing of placement instructions too--more options are always the best! Thanks so much for all of your fabulous inspiration Shellye! Hope you have a great weekend!

  6. Love the princess layout. I've got some Legoland pictures that would be great on this layout too. Both layouts are nice, but I lean toward the princess.

A Festive Unity

Greetings! I'm pleased and excited to be sharing in this fabulous AUTHENTIQUE PAPER & UNITY STAMP COMPANY  BLOG HOP
Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
