I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.

I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.

I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.

Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.

I used several of the cardstock stickers from the collection to adorn this banner.

I combined a couple of the cardstock stickers for some more visual interest.

This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.

FREE Scrapbook Layout Template

Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades.

Here's a picture of the card closed. It has a belly band to help keep it closed. I created the card cut file and then used a piece of Navy blue cardstock and cut out the base with my Pazzles Die Cut Machine. The patterned paper is from the Let Freedom Ring Collection.

This close up shows some of the marvelous 3D stickers from the Dad Sticker set. They are the perfect combination.

Here is a closer look at the DAD sticker. I like that it has a metallic backing for just a little pizzazz. The coffee cup is perfect!

Here is a shot of the other side of stickers. All of the stickers are a part of the 3D Dad sticker set with the exception of the pizza. That is part of the Chicago 3D sticker set. I had to add it as my hubby is a huge pizza fan!

Here is a closer look at the belly band. I used a strip of patterned paper from the Let Freedom Ring Philadelphia set and layered it over a strip of blue cardstock. I added the sticker Father knows best for the perfect decorative touch.

XYRON & PAPER HOUSE “WE ARE FAMILY” BLOG HOP Prize & FREEBIE!

PHP_Family-Co-Hop2017

Hello crafty friends!  Melinda here with you today. I am super excited to be participating in the Xyron and Paper House Productions Co-Hop!!!!  Here is the layout I created using the One Big Happy Family Collection! I used papers from the One Big Happy Family Collection as well as adhesives from our friends at Xyron.
Xyron Paper House Productions Blog Hop Layout

Layout Supplies: 
 
5th-gen-650
  Here’s a closer look at the box pleat frame as well as the medallion. I used the Xyron 1.5″ Sticker maker and ran all of the strips through. This made pleating a cinch!

curtain-pleat-650
Here’s a closer look at the curtain pleat. I created it and then resized it so it would fit on my picture. I added a sticker flower from the cardstock sticker sheet that is included with the paper crafting kit. I used the Xyron 3″ sticker maker for the curtain pleat. Once again, running the paper through the sticker maker allows you to pleat the paper and have it hold perfectly!

fancy-border-cu-650
Here’s a closer look at the fancy border frame. I created a wavy box pleat for this one. I also added some pearl stickers for a little extra accent.  The letters are also cardstock stickers from the cardstock sticker sheet included with the paper crafting kit. I love that it all coordinates perfectly!

other-side-border-650
I cut the pleats out of my Pazzles and then pre-folded them. Once I folded them, I flattened them back out and put them through the Sticker Maker.  I simply fed one after the other so as not to waste any of my sticker maker!
