Maya Road & Xyron Christmas In July

Well, I've made it to July 24th and have not shared a 
single "Christmas in July" project up until now!
That's almost unheard of...for me anyway :)
But today is the day.
XYRON and MAYA ROAD
have teamed up this week to bring you some inspiration
from both of the companies!
Be sure to visit the Xyron Blog to see all of the projects!

 My first project uses a recycled glass jar with a 4" opening at the top.


 I embellished the top of a 4" Jumbo Bottle Cap from Maya Road with some 
patterned paper by Doodlebug Design.  After cutting the circle, I placed the paper
through the Creative Station to add a nice, even coating of permanent adhesive.

The metal flower bottle top was colored with a red alcohol marker,
topped with paper and then attached with Xyron 3/16" Adhesive Dots.
A wooden knob was painted lime green and attached with Xyron Adhesive Dots.

I added some ribbon to the jar by running a length of ribbon through
the Xyron 1.5" Sticker Maker.  A matching bow was added to the tag on front.

Two of the Raspberry Berry Beads were adhered to the side of the tag
with Xyron 3/16" Adhesive Dots

And lastly I have a quick, quick card that I made up with some of 
the Paper Twist Ribbon from Maya Road and papers/stickers by 3 Birds Designs.

I slightly unwound the paper and then rolled it into a flower shape.  
A 1" circle was covered in adhesive with the 1.5" Xyron Sticker Maker and
then the rolled flower was attached to it.

That's all from me today!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

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.
