Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron Inspiration Week

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Hello, lovelies!
This week Newton's Nook Designs and Xyron are partnering for a very awesome inspiration week! Each day there is fresh inspiration using Newton's Nook Designs products with Xyron adhesives on the NND blog and on the Xyron facebook page!

Today lovely Maria Russell and I are taking our turn to inspire you with some fun projects! Here goes mine...;-)

Xyron was so very generous and offered us some goodies to play with (Thank you so much!) and I picked their Teresa Collins 1.5" Sticker Maker and some refills! This is such a great way to use up some of your huge scrap collection (it's okay, we all have it, no need to be embarrassed about saving every little scrap...LOL) with the Shape Dies like the Autumn Leaves Set, Peppermint Die Set, just to name a couple ;-)

The reason I chose the sticker maker is so that I can just slap on some NND stickers on my big calendar! I don't do planners, but I still need to write down things so I won't forget (even though I still forget somehow...LOL) 
I was directly stamping and coloring on the calendar (like the grad kitty from the Newton's Graduation Set) but I had to take it down and put it back up on the wall, and thought stickers would make that easier!

Newton's Nook Designs Winston's BBQ Set - Naki Rager

A little grill image is from the Winston's BBQ set. I stamped it, colored with colored pencils, fussy cut it, then fed through the sticker maker. Isn't this a must for summer ccok out with your family and friends!?

Newton's Nook Designs Shark Bites Set - Naki Rager

My twins are turning 5 in August! And I am throwing them a party and thought, wouldn't it be cute to send a reminder sticker with the invitations!? And since the theme is "Sharks and Mermaids", I used this big guy from the Shark Bites Set ;-) He was stamped with light gray on Kraft cardstock to match my Kraft calendar, colored with colored pencil and die cut with the coordinating die, then ran through the sticker maker. 

Newton's Nook Designs Loveable Llama & Playful Pandas Sets - Naki Rager

The stack of presents image is from the new Loveable Llamas Set, and the little balloon is from the new Playful Pandas Set. I'm gonna have to make A LOT MORE of these little images, so many birthdays! 

Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Book Club Set - Naki Rager

I got a 1.5" sticker maker so some of the bigger images wouldn't fit, but no worries! Like this one from the Newton's Book Club Set, the stack of books that Newton's is on is a lot bigger, but all I needed to do was fussy cut to have only 2 books so that it would fit the sticker maker ;-) I originally picked this image for some events at the local library during the summer, but this fit, too!

Newton's Nook Designs Newton's Sick Day Set - Naki Rager

I just wanted to show you how easy it is to use the sticker maker. 
Also, I had these prescription bottle images from the Newton's Sick Day Set that are pretty small and wanted to feed them 2 at a time, and I used a piece of Glad Press & Seal to keep them in place.

I don't know about you, but I am pretty cheap when it comes to consumable supplies and try not to waste too much {LOL} I could have run these guys one by one, but that would have made a big waste! Doing this made more sense to me...;-)

You feed your pieces from one side, pull the adhesive paper from the other side, that's it!

Before getting too excited and peeling your freshly made stickers, you want to rub it (if you have a tool like this, that's perfect!) to make sure all the adhesive has transferred. Then peel the film and enjoy!

Now I am off to order a bigger sticker maker.....{giggle}


  1. Love your big wall calendar idea! I don't do planners either. I appreciate the review of the Xyron sticker maker. I've been wanting one of these and didn't realize they came in different sizes. Can't wait to get one now!

  2. This is so cute & so colorful! Love it!

  3. Great idea to make planner/calendar stickers!

  4. Awesome idea to make stickers instead of pulling down the
    calendar to embellish. Love how you did the kitty/books by
    cutting it down to fir the sticker maker (I also have a small
    one). And I'm frugal as well. I buy 1/2" double sided tape and
    cut it in half to get twice as much. It works! lol

  5. This is such a great idea to create custom stickers for a calendar! I love how you colored your images and turned them into stickers :)

  6. Love your ideas to make your owns stickers! Beautiful colouring!!!


  7. What a fun idea. And a good way to
    get personalized stickers for your planner.
    thanks for sharing a clever idea.

  8. This is a great project to bring life to a calendar. Thanks for sharing your creativity.

  9. This is such a great idea !! These little stickers are just so adorable !

  10. What a fantastic idea! I'm not a planner girl either but I would totally do this. Adorable stickers!

  11. ADORABLE stickers! Such a fun way to personalize your projects!

  12. I have 4 kids too and without my planners, I would not be able to function. I love your wall calendar. My 13yo has one and I think he would love to make some stickers for it. I have the small sticker maker too and have never thought of using the press and seal with it. Thanks for the tip! I think my kiddos and I will be making some stickers later this afternoon. And the shark party reminders are awesome!

  13. Using the sticker maker for small die cuts is a great idea! I need to use mine more often.

  14. Love love those stickers and that Shark one really made me smile - great work ! TFS

  15. Fabulous calendar stickers! Such a great idea!

  19. Lots of fun ideas for your calendar! Great idea to make stickers with these adorable designs!

  20. I really love your idea for calendar :-)

    1. I have 1.5" Xyron. I never think to use it for small items! I need to put it out so I can see! Thank you for this post being a reminder for me

  21. I'm an empty nester and while cleaning out my kids'craft supply chest, I found a 1.5 Xyron sticker maker - pretty much unused! I kept it (kept most of their supplies, lol, since I love crafting with paper) and have had in the back of my mind that I need to figure out how to use it. Your post was perfectly timed for me! I will look at all of these ideas and would be thrilled to win the contest. Thanks for offering it!
