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!!

I can't believe it's been over 2 weeks since I have posted! I am so sorry....I (like I am sure all of you) have been crazy busy with getting Christmas shopping done, class parties, Etsy stuff, etc. It has been hard to keep my life organized!
So here are some pics of some of the latest projects I have been working on.
I hope you enjoy them!
I sure hope you all enjoy your holiday and have a wonderful New Year!
