Sunday With... (Pencil Toppers & Magnets)

Xyron's Creative Station 900.
The Xyron 9” Creative Station is a Sticker Maker, Laminator, Label and Magnet Maker all in one. Perfect for so many of your craft, school, home and office projects, It's safe enough for kids to use because it requires no heat, no batteries or electricity. The 9” width allows you to create photo stickers, photo magnets, laminated recipe cards, business cards, labels for jars and cabinets and many other projects.

I started small by making pencil toppers using the adhesive function of the Creative Station 900.
Check them out:

(oops...sorry about the position but it was one of the better photos)


After how quick & simple those were I decided I would try using the magnet/laminating feature to make some fridge magnets.
Check them out:

I actually stamped those images on white cardstock using memento black ink then cut them & ran them through the Creative Station 900 all at once.

I thought of running those photos through the magnetic laminate too but changed my mind because I thought I would scrap the photos at a later time. But isn't it cool that you can do that?

I used my corner chomper by We R Memory Keepers to punch the corners of those birdcage tag magnets. It chomped away quite easily!

Check out XYRON'S demonstration on laminating HERE.

I love that you can change applications quickly with Xyron's easy load cartridges. The Creative Station 900 has a removable trimmer which worked with great ease when I used it to cut especially the laminate magnet sheet. I thought it might give me a little trouble but it cut like butta! It is portable, lightweight& easy to use.


* Applies an even layer of edge-to-edge adhesive onto items up to 9" wide.
* Instantly laminates items up to 8.5" wide.
* Refillable

It was featured on the Martha Stewart Show and for good reason.
Check out the video via THIS LINK. Just click on the video on the left hand side of the screen, down the middle where it says watch the video.

This versatile tool was so wonderful to work with. I enjoyed the ease of use and how I could use it for several applications. It is particularly wonderful with cuts from any die cutting machine or lose dies. The 900 has a 9-inch platform so you can place a lot of cut images on the platform & get adhesive on them in one pass.

This one machine allows you to use permanent adhesive, repositionable adhesive,double laminate, single laminate & laminate magnetic rolls. That is 5 different applications! What other machine do you know lets you do that?
If you can't tell already, I LOVE THIS MACHINE!
