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!

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…
