Xyron + Paper House Co-Hop

Welcome to my contribution to day #4 of the 
PAPER HOUSE & XYRON BLOG HOP
Visit both of the blogs to see even more inspiration:

For my project, I used a burlap covered mini album, which I thought would 
look so cute with the beach/cruise theme of my album!

It's pretty cool that the Tropical Beach 3-D embellishment blends right in with 
one of the papers found in the "Endless Summer" Paper Pad.

 The inside pages were soooo easy to assemble!  I cut the larger 12X12 
sheets of patterned paper down to fit the album pages and then adhered using 
the Xryon 9" Creative Station...peel and stick.  I then embellished each page
with different 3-D or canvas stickers from Paper House.

I actually made this album to give as a gift to my Mom this past Mother's Day!
She can fill it with her favorite cruise photos.

When designing the pages of a mini album, I like to stagger the embellishments
so that one page's sticker doesn't lay directly onto the next page's...it keeps
the album from not seeming as bulky.

 I really like the life-like images found in the Paper House products. 
I went a step further with the page to the left and added some actual
sea shells!  I used Xyron's 3/8" Adhesive Dots to keep them in place.

Here is a list of all of the beach-themed things that I used from Paper House:
- Endless Summer Paper Pad; Beach Comber 3-D Sticker; Cruise Adventure 3-D Sticker; 
Beach Chalkboard Sticker; Beach Canvas Art Sticker

That's a wrap for my "Travel the World" Xyron & Paper House project...
hope you've enjoyed the hop!
