I was so excited to open the present from my Mom on Christmas Eve! She gave me a Xyron 500 create a sticker! I was so jazzed when I opened it. I have been making stickers ever since!
I can't wait to make some cards and make all my die cuts into stickers:)
The machine is really easy to use. There is no plugging it in and no batteries. Just load whatever it is you want to make into a sticker and turn the knob clockwise and ta daa! It's a sticker. Too cool.
I have also been getting really obsessed about stamping with metal stamps. I bought a set of metal stamps yesterday at Ace Hardware for 29.99. A little spendy, but they last forever. I know you can buy them on the internet too. Here is the link to Harbor Freight: http://www.harborfreight.com/ Their prices are really reasonable, but I was too impatient to wait for mine in the mail:)
I am posting a few washers that I stamped yesterday and it was actually really easy! I did in on my garage floor, which was stinkin' cold, but it was worth it.
I messed up on the "A" on the Faith washer, but not bad for my first try, huh?
I am planning on making a lot more and attaching beads to them, and anything else I can get my hands on! They are sooooo fun!!
Anyone doing anything exciting for New Years Eve? I am going to try and stay up til Midnight. We shall see.....Happy New Year!!
