Deep Red Stamps Vintage Woody

IPhone Cover Decor

Since Xyron has a fabulous way of making anything into a sticker, I decided to create décor for the back of my cell phone case. Taking beautiful, damask patterned glitter paper from DCWV, 6x6 pad, 'The Glitter Basics" I cut out my iPhone 6s cover pattern using a template I created in plain white cardstock of my case.

To cut out the circle in the middle, I used an X-Acto knife.  

The Scooter Rubber Stamp was embossed on red paper and cut out with scissors.  I smudged 'Claret' color StazOn ink around the edges. 


After placing the scooter through the Xyron Creative Station, I placed it onto the iPhone pattern and ran both through together.  The Creative Station can take such thick items.  You will see below that I ran embellishments made from shrink plastic and it had no problem with them.
One of the magical features of the Xyron's sticker makers is that the top of your project comes out unscathed.  You just peel the plastic liner off the top and peel your project off the white liner paper and your item becomes a sticker, either repositionable or permanent.

Mini Handmade Notebook

Deep Red Stamps Always Succeed Rubber Stamp

How to create a mini handmade cute and fun to make!  This one was created using our Notebook Steno Rubber Stamp.  Eight pages were stamped on white cardstock with StazOn Black Ink.  An 1/8" hole punch perfectly fits the circles.  The pages are held together with 2 dark copper metal rings (jewelry findings). 

To make a cover for the notebook, I used real wood sheets, stained with Walnut Spray (Ranger) glued onto heavy chipboard.  I envisioned having a single object featured on the cover with a inspirational message on the inside, so I decided on using the Always Succeed Rubber Stamp - lightbulb portion for the front and sentiment inside, both stamped with StazOn black ink.  You can either stamp onto the wood sheet before you add the stain or after.  As those experienced crafters know, StazOn ink is amazing and can stamp on just about any surface!

The second page of the notebook, is vellum paper with the text featuring the quote by Thomas Edison.  This quote applies in the craft room as well as life :-)

We have 3 different notebook style rubber stamps for the creation of handmade books:
Notebook Spiral Rubber Stamp
Notebook Paper Rubber Stamp
Notebook Steno Rubber Stamp
Each measures the same at: 2" wide x 3" tall (5,0 cm x 7,62 cm)

By the way, it just so happens that your mini handmade notebook will fit perfectly into an altered Altoid candy tin (the full sized ones, not the mini).  More about this creation in a later post!  The butterflies featured in this project are from our Butterflies Collection Stamp Set and Butterflies Pair Rubber Stamp Set, except for the metal one you see below (Prima).
