Default Another poor soul forks out more money....

for something she read about on these discussion boards, and would never have bought otherwise....


I went into a craft store yesterday with the intention of picking up a cute stamping magazine, and *maybe* buying it. Somehow (?) I ended up parking myself in the aisle with the Xyron machines and not leaving the store without one.

Now, how did that happen?????

On a side note, I made a whole set sampler last night, and I am completely in love with this awesome machine!!

The laminator is not powered, or heated, or electric, which is handy. I thought it might not be as good because the big machines in the stores are heated. But they don't laminate my set samplers very well, there are always spots that don't stick, or bubbles that won't be heated with my heatgun and fixed. And I hate going to the store to laminate!

I got 40% off and bought the $20 laminating cartridge separately. The machine came with an adhesive cartridge. I simply have NO idea what to do with it... ideas are welcome. I think I remember reading that there are things that can done with it, combined with scrapbooking and stamping, as a demo.

I plan on laminating bookmarks that I make to match cards. I am thrilled with that. I got the 900 series, I hope that is the one that y'all recommend for that size. It was the only one there...

Thanks! I think! lol...

I love, love, love my 505. You'll find all sorts of interesting ways to use it.

I have a question, though. When you talk about "set samplers" is this what you are referring to?

Still new at this... I love learning from all of you

Default set sampler

Now I am not a demo yet but I am assuming a "set sampler" is a sample (several cards) that you can make using a specifc set. This will show the versatility of what you can do with the set and boost sales...

right...?

Gina, you've got it!!
Set Samplers are 'packets' of 4 or 5 different types of cards made with the same set. The set samplers are easily passed around at workshops or camps, so it's easy to see the featured set used with different colors or varied from birthday to thank you cards, etc.

Christy! Congrats on the Xyron!! (That's been on my personal list for a longgggg time).

Smiles, TexasGrammy

The xyron is awesome! I got the 900 for Christmas and it's great for adding adhesive to whole sheets of vellum!!!

I just put my sample cards in the cello bags too, then top them with cardstock.

By the way texasgrammy, you must have gotten an early start. You don't look anywhere near old enough to have grandchildren!

Hello ladies!

Thanks Debbi for the card compliment! I'm glad to 'see' you too!

Hahahaha! No, I really didn't start early! But thank you anyway! My special title is very new - twice in April, 2004!

And as for set samplers, mine are also just in the large cello bags, attached together with a topper made from the featured set! I don't do all of my samples this way though, because you can't see whatever neat stuff might be inside the card!

Smiles to you!

Hi Texas Grammie,

It is so good to see your picture. I still haven't the courage to put one of me up yet.

Ok, help out the newbie. What is a Carl cutter? And what can you do with the xyron besides laminating? There is so much to learn!
Thanks,
Tammy

Hi Tammy!

The Carl Cutter is sold at www.everafterarts.com . There are a few discussions on those in the forums, if you'll click 'search', then type in Carl Cutter.

There's a good thread about the Xyron uses at:
http://splitcoaststampers.com/forums...ighlight=xyron

Hope this helps!
Smiles, TexasGrammy

Default Xyron adhesive cartridge

Christy,
You can use the adhesive to make name tags or labels for just about anything . . .with something cute stamped on them (of course;^)

Default thanks everyone

I'm really enjoying it! The way that I do my set samplers is a little different, I got the idea from my brilliant upline. The topper itself extends down the back of the cards. Here, I'll scan it for you!

It makes it a whole lot more durable, and sturdy!

Smiles,
Christy

That's what I do to. I also put the item number and price on the back, along with stamping each stamp from the set once. My upline showed me this.
