 For my card today I've used the Waffle Flower Birthday Fishes Stamp Set & Dies

I also used the new "Let's Be Mermaids" 6x6 paper pad from Echo Park Paper.  

I prepared the two mats for the A2 card can ran them through the Creative Station Lite.  

The large fish was stamped several times onto different patters of paper with Staz-On ink.
The pieces were carefully trimmed out and placed into the 1.5" Sticker Maker.

 Just give a good rub and peel away the film on top.  Now the pieces are ready to be
layered together!

After die-cutting the intricate "Awesome" word, it was also ran through the 1.5"
Sticker Maker.  This is such a fantastic adhesive tool for small pieces!


I used the background die for the fish and cut out a white background, which the pieced
fishes were added to.  I stamped the bubbles with a ocean blue and highlighted with
blue enamel dots.  The hats were adorned with tiny poms for extra texture!

Happy Hump-Day!
I'm sharing a fun summer card over at

I've used some actual sand from our last trip to the beaches of Alabama and the
super-cool Fuse tool.  Come by the WRMK blog and see how I put it together :)
Hope you're enjoying some Summer sun where you are!

Back-to-School Bookmarks

Hello, Tuesday-crafters!
Back-to-school will be here soon enough so I thought I'd 
whip up some cute laminated bookmarks to share at school :)

I've used one of my very favorite collections from Echo Park Paper, "Teacher's Pet" 


I cut the "Bookmarks" paper into strips following the individual designs.  
I used stickers from the collection to add a little extra decoration before I applied the laminate.

Next, I placed two of the 2" wide strips into the Creative Station Lite and ran them through:


After the laminate was applied to all of the bookmarks, I trimmed them out leaving a 
1/8" border of laminate around the edges.
I also added some eyelets and ribbon to the top of each.

Now I have a set of 12 sturdy, colorful bookmarks that can be placed in the school library...
the kids will love them! Stop by the Xyron Facebook Page to see more ideas this
 week using the fabulous Double-Sided Laminate!
