Xyron + Paper House Co-Hop

Welcome to my contribution to day #4 of the 
Visit both of the blogs to see even more inspiration:
Xyron Blog Paper House Blog

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' 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!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
