BELAGIO Cork Paper
Is packaged cork that is 18″ x 15″ in 9 different and can be found in the notions department of Hobby Lobby. Belagio also has two cork fabric natural and a natural with gold at Walmart stores that have fabric departments.  It is sold by the yard.  As for the entire collection, we have placement in many quilt and craft shops around the country.  The Belagio cork fabric is available at retail on Walmart.com and Amazon.com.

Celebrate Tag with Xyron Creative Station Lite!

Hi Xyron Fans!!! 
Can you believe it has been a year for me to be apart of the amazing Xyron Design Team!!! 
So many talented designers this year, I am truly honored to be a part of the team! 
With that being said… 
We were asked to share our favorite Xyron product and why!
 WOW…THAT IS HARD!!!!
 So many fabulous products to choose from!!! 
SO… 
I chose Xyron Creative Station Lite!!! 
Today I created a Celebrate Tag using Stamperia Wonderland Collection using the Creative Station Lite with 5″ and 3″ Permanent Adhesive. 
The first thing I love about Xyron Creative Station is that I can run “chipboard” through it. 
Once it comes through Xyron Creative Station…it is easy to add paper right to the top of the tag. 
Trim and sand off the access paper.
Just repeat for the back and add pattern paper. 
Secondly, for those smaller pieces…
WELL…
All you do is lift the lid…
Take out the Xyron 5″ Permanent Adhesive…
AND..
Slide the 3″ Permanent Adhesive into position. 
NOW…
for my third favorite thing…
INTRICATE DIES OR WORDS…
Place pattern paper through the Xyron Creative Station Lite using 3″ Permanent Adhesive. 
After adhesive is applied to the paper; die cut the intricate doily.
I’ve also used it with…
felt, fabric, lace, ribbon, burlap, wood veneers, thin metal, cork, chipboard, cardboard, mat board along with paper 

WOW…
Just like that..
Your doily or words have adhesive on the back and can be added to your tag. 
NOW HERE IS WHERE I GET EXCITED!!!
EMBOSSING!!!!
YES!!!
My next favorite thing about the Xyron Creative Station Lite is I can emboss chipboard by placing embossing powder on top of the adhesive and heat setting with my embossing gun. 
Place “Celebrate word through the Xyron Creative Station using 3” Permanent Adhesive. 
(Make sure it goes in upside down so the adhesive will be on the top side of the word.) 


REMEMBER…
For larger chipboard change out the 3″ Xyron Permanent Adhesive to the Xyron 5″ Permanent Adhesive. 
Run embossed chipboard back through the Xyron Creative Station Lite using the 3″ and 5″ Permanent Adhesive. Add to top of tag.

Finish your “Celebrate” Tag with some flowers…

A pretty bow…

Some pretty leaves…

Finish with a small metal heart!!!
What is not to “Celebrate” when using Xyron Creative Station Lite with Permanent Adhesive!!!
NOW…
FOR MY LAST EXCITING REASON I LOVE THE XYON CREATIVE STATION LITE…
DID YOU KNOW…
THAT IT ALSO USES BOTH LAMINATE AND MAGNETIC ADHESIVE!!!
Click on the following blog post to check it out! 
I hope you are inspired to check out all of Xyron amazing products but to really check out all the fabulous ways to use the Xyron Creative Station Lite!!!
Hugs Pam
