Freebie Friday – Xyron

Miniature Spool Vignettes by Morena Hockley

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful National Scrapbook Day last Saturday and have been scrapbooking away all week!

This week, I want to talk to you about Xyron. I have found over the years that sometimes it is much easier and therefore more fun to be able to add the adhesive to a project via an edge to edge application. For years, when I have been working with intricate pieces or areas where it is hard to apply adhesive, I reach for my Xyron. From an X Sticker Maker to a 5″ Creative Station to a 9″ Creative Station, there is a machine that will make your project better. Many of the machines also can be used to add lamination or magnets to your project. With all these options, the possibilities are endless.

Here are a few projects created by Xyron design team members. Click on the links below the images for more details on the projects and which Xyron product was used.

  34. Darlene Schueler says:

    As a proud owner of three sizes of Xyron machines, I’d love to consolidate to the new one, handing off the originals to my daughter. Living three thousand miles apart, you can bet we mail lots of cards and things back and forth. She’d appreciate me winning.

  35. Cindy Curry says:

  36. Sharron Bennett says:

  37. Carole Smith says:

Thanks for the chance!

  40. Virginia Abbe says:

    I really, really like this new Xyron. I have the 1 inch Xyron and use it all the time. It would be awesome to have a 2 in one machine to do larger projects. I want to thank the person who invented this.

  41. Celia England says:

    Wow, I am so excited that there is a bigger Xyron sticker maker. I have been using the little one for smaller items. I print a lot of different items and the bigger ones are a challenge. So I end up using glue.

  42. Marie says:

    Keeping my fingers crossed as this Xyron would be a perfect addition for my scrapbook in needs.

  43. Katia says:

    Have never used a Xyron, it looks like a fabulous tool! Thanks for the chance to win one!!

  44. sherry carstens says:

    This is so nice to be able to switch the sizes. I should update. My Xyron machines are over 15 years old but still work. Little more difficult to find replacement rolls.

  45. DotMc says:

    WOW, Fabulous, who wouldn’t want one. It will make crafting so much easier and faster. When you are 75 yrs old and have a very large family to make things for that is very important.

  46. Nicole Nardi says:

    What a great new tool from Xyron. I really like the ability to switch to two different sizes. Also great creativity shown on the projects displayed.

  47. Michelle C says:

    Looks like a wonderful machine. I don’t own any of the Xyron machines but seems like it’d be so useful. Love all the projects. My favorite is the little whimsical spools. So cute!#

  48. LCJinRoslynPA says:

    Love, love, LOVE that butterfly ornament! I can certainly see how the Xyron would make sticking those leaves down a snap! I would love to be able to do that – thanks to you and the folks at Xyron for a change to win their newest machine.

  49. Cynthia Poritz says:

    I could really use this machine, as I always get my glue stick residue on everything.

  50. Arlene says:

    The winds have been howling here for two days. Dust and sand fill the air. It is a perfect time to stay indoors and craft.

  51. Therese H says:

    I love my little X and use it all the time. I would be so excited to get this new machine. Love!!!

  52. Barbara DiPietro says:

    I have the Xyron machines too. I would really like to see and win the new one. I like the spool project shown and am interested to read the info on how it was made, especially as to how the ‘hello’ was affixed to it.

  53. Andrea Schultz says:

    Wow! This is a great machine but having it be able to do two sizes is pure genius! Would love to win this handy tool!

  54. karenajo says:

    Looks like a great machine with lots of uses ! Thanks for all the inspiration with the super projects – so much variety ! Thanks for a chance to win !

  62. Phyllis Ikerd Salesman says:

    I love all my Xyrons – two of them I can’t even get refills for any more ( so sad) Yeah, they are that old.:)
    Now if I should win this new 2 in one unit I could bless someone else with my 5″ & 2.5″ sticker makers…
    Thank you for a great product Xyron.
    Thank you Weekly Scrapper for sharing all the Tips, Techniques, How too’s and Crafty Ideas.

    • Julie says:

  63. Lynn Hoth says:

    I love my Xyron machines! With graduation just around the corner, I’d love to graduate to the newest creative Station Lite. Thanks for making cragting so much easier

  64. Beverly Jordan says:

    I love Xyron for their fabulous glue products especially when using my Cricut Explore! It keeps all my cut pieces together until I can get to a crop. Would love to win their newest machine!!

  65. Sandy Lewis says:

    WOW! I would LOVE to win this machine!!! I am a die hard Xyron fan from way back. I have 3 – yup 3 Xyron machines at home and I can’t wait to get my 4th!! Thank you for the chance to win.

  66. Alane Jackson says:

    This new machine looks fantastic! My go-to for tape runners is Xyron so I know the products are high quality and great to use for scrapbooking, card making, and for making things for weddings! My daughter is getting married in October so the Xyron machine would be wonderful to use for table decorations, and thank-you cards, and cards for the attendants.

  67. Renee C. says:

    I have the X but not anything bigger. I would love to win this for my card making and scrapbooking projects.

  68. Denise Weber says:

    Oh wow! So many new things on here. Love the handle feature and the cutting feature. I have the little one and it sure has been used! Love your products.

  69. Joan M says:

    I never got into the xyron machines, but boy would I like this new one. Thanks for sharing all the great features and for the opportunity to win one.

  70. Nancy Mac says:

    This new machine would be perfect for me! I have the X, the 5″ and the 9″ and I love them and use them so often. I would love to have a machine that I can convert from 3″ to 5″ and vice-versa! Xyron makes such great products! Thanks for the opportunity to own your newest product!

  71. Melissa L. says:

    OOOO! This is so cool! Thanks for introducing me to the Creative Station Lite by Xyron. I am new to Xyron products and am off to check them out now. 🙂

  72. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you for allowing all of us the chance to win the great Creative Station Lite by Xyron. I have been scrapbooking steadily for 16 plus years now and did a little years before that. I always loved the great papers and embellishments you could find for every theme that I worked on. But over the past few years, it is getting harder to find the great embellishments that I need. This great little machine would solve that problem. I could make my own better looking embellishments. I try to make some by hand but I just cant quite get the glue on there without making a big mess. Good luck to everyone

  73. Mary Schultz says:

    I have the little X and the 5″ – we bought them for my son when he was 5 because he LOVED stickers and thought it would be “awesome” to make his own… I think he used each one 4-5 times, then he gave them to me “to use for your crafts, mom. I can borrow them from you if I want”. He was a very sweet 5 yo. It would be a lot of fun to have and use this new machine!

    A tip for you all I saw on tv a long time ago – when you want to coat an embellishment in glitter, put it in your Xyron upside down. The stickum adheres to the top of the embellishment, and the glitter will adhere (quite well) to that. Works for seed beads, too, or even when covering something with a decorative paper.

  74. Marianne Chapman says:

    I have always loved Xyron products. The adhesives are perfect for die cuts and so much more. I would love to win this new Creative Station Lite with 2 size options!

  75. Liz says:

    I currently have two of the older smaller Xyron’s but I can think of so many new ways to use the new larger-sized Xyron. Xyron came up with an awesome to be able to use two sizes on this new machine. I’m always telling my fellow stamping friends how great the Xyron products are. Hope you pick me this month so I can start putting my ideas into action!

  76. Vee says:

    Xyron, you keep one upping yourself. Just when I think it could not get any better, it does. You do know your adhesives and the various uses crafters need for applying it. I truly love that it is shelf friendly and does not eat up valuable real estate. Thanks for this awesome opportunity to win the newest version. Please continue to keep up the creative work you all do for us.

  77. Kathy LacQuay says:

    I would love to win a Xyron! This is one tool I do not own, but my daughter does, and uses it all the time.
    Thank you to Xyron and Scrapbook Expo for your generosity and the opportunity to win this.

  78. Brenda Wade says:

    What a great new Xyron “machine!” I certainly would love to win this and would be using it a LOT!!!!! Scrapbooking and card making and other crafty projects !!! Thanks so much for the chance to win this!

  79. Donna Jensen says:

    My Xyron is one of the most-used tools on my craft room. I love the idea of an adhesive size that’s tight between the “X” and the 5-inch, and having one machine use two sizes is perfect since I’m short on space!

  80. Janet Ingraham says:

    I’ve been craving a Xyron for some time. THank you for giving me the opportunity to win one.

  81. Brenda Meyers says:

    would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win….I have several Xyrons and so excited about this new one….thanks for a chance to win….

  82. Sieglinde Nix says:

    The style is so sleek and it’s much nicer looking, less chunky that the old 5″ I have. I would so love to win this neat new Kyron. The added 3″ roll that is included makes this very handy especially when going to crops! Thanh you for giving us all a chance to win this!

  83. Sharyn Childs says:

    I just LOVE LOVE Xyron products. I have a couple of their machines but this one sounds like a real winner. I would love to be able to add this to my arsenal of “crafting gear”. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  84. Kersten says:

    I share a small xyRon with a scrapbooking friend – what an amazing tool! This would be an amazing add to our shared collection of tools.

  85. Charlene says:

    First saw a Xyron at the Denver Expo this weekend, and now I need one! They are so great for little embellishments/die cuts too small for my adhesive!

  86. Tammy K says:

    I’ve only tried the Xyron small one, when I lived in Utah ! It would be nice to learn more!

  87. Denise says:

    Love it! Would be a great tool especially for all the scrapping retreat my besties and I go. Think it is fantastic! Thanks for the chance!

  88. Susan says:

    I absolutely love Xyron products. I just used my “X” this morning to make a card! I would love to win this prize!

  89. Brenda Berry says:

    What a totally fabulous addition to my craft room!! I love making life easier!!! Works for me.

  90. Loretta Hovie says:

    I would love to have one of these great machines to use with the women and children when I take a craft project to our homeless shelter. It would be such a blessing. I can see all the fun the kids would have making their very own stickers.

  91. Mechele says:

    I love my 5″ Byron & recently have been researching this one. This would b wonderful to win!

  92. Darlene P says:

    Love the new “lite” Xyron! I don’t have a 5″ – just the X and the 9″. It would be a perfect addition to my craft tools!

  93. Barbara Tischler says:

    This Xyron is genius! Wish it was ‘born’ sooner! Love that it offers 2 options, and think that the 3″ will be a great width to have in my repertoire. Crossing my fingers…….
