Xyron Blog Hop Featuring Heidi Swapp

Kemper gift tags (1) 12/4/2013

I recently received several of Heidi Swapp’s ‘Believe’ patterned papers from Xyron as our design team prepared for this blog hop, and I decided to use my goodies for holiday gift tags.  All of these patterned papers (as well as the white chipboard letters and the big white flower on Cathy’s tag) are from Heidi’s Believe collection.

The collection has a wonderful variety of patterned paper. I used several Tim Holtz Sizzix dies (two alphabets, an on-the-edge, and the reindeer), as well as a few border punches.  The letters are cut from from Tim’s Chip Block and Alphabetical dies.

The Teresa Collins sticker maker from Xyron was perfect for adhering the small pieces, and I used my Xyron Mega Runner for the larger ones.


I used the Christmas mini blueprint stamp on the “Tim” one (not for that Tim ~ this is for one of my brothers!) and one of the Artful Dwellings dies as the base.  I really enjoy using a combination of new and ‘long loved’ supplies, and I think these will be well received at Christmas.

Many thanks for the visit today!  Be sure you don’t miss my Thanksgiving Give-Away ~ just a few days left to comment as the winner(s) will be announced this Friday, December 6th.
