DIY Periscope Alert with Xyron Creative Station: Giveaway!

1-OOsiqNQhKD1ms1aKdSgU6wBy now you may have enjoyed watching, broadcasting on, or at least heard about the app Periscope. Whether publishing your own live video content or enjoying the “scopes” of others, it’s fast becoming one of my favorite social networks. Periscope allows anyone with a smart phone or tablet to shoot and share live video of just about anything. Viewers can interact through comments and by tapping the screen and leaving hearts as sort of “like” tokens. When following others, you have the option to be notified when they begin a LIVE broadcast, though that may not always be conveniently timed for you. So if you miss a live scope you think would be of interest, a replay is available for 24 hours. If you are shooting a live scope yourself, you can opt to have it saved to your camera, which allows you to upload it to YouTube for future sharing. That’s just what I’ve done with the video below.  Periscope broadcasts are typically somewhat casual in nature, unlike my more professionally done DIY home decor video series. However with replays saved to your camera, the comments and questions from viewers will not show on the video, so you will catch me dialoguing with ghosts as you watch, which can seem a bit odd. But as rough-cut as the video can be, hopefully this will give you an idea how fun and useful this app can be.

Holden-PeriscopeWatch the recent Periscope replay below that I did featuring the awesome all-new Xyron Creative Station used to create an alert gadget for scoping in crowds, shown here being used at the recent Pinterest Ambassador event in San Francisco by George Bryant and Amy Locurto.

Follow me on Periscope to watch upcoming projects and scopes from the studio and various events.

  24. #24 - Mary Hitch says:

    Every month I create a craft to hand out to the 300 kids that come to our workshop. Believe me, my hand gets very tired of gluing and cutting to make stickers and magnets for these kids. But because it’s something I love to do, I put up with a few aches and pains. This machine might quite possibly be a lifesaver. And maybe i can actually get ahead of my crafting for the month!

  25. #25 - Lena says:

    Smaller, lighter and easy-to-use. What’s not to love about the creative station? I’d love to put it to work and create some magic.

  28. #28 - Mirti says:

    Seriously! I never knew that this item even existed. This just changed my world!! So cool!!!

  31. #31 - Linda Sartin says:

    Have never heard of such a thing. How cool is that.

  32. #32 - Donna Moore says:

    This is great. Two for the price of one machine. As awesome as this is, it would be great to have one machine that accepts all of the adhesive cartridges with multiple small adjustments. It would certainly free up space on my counter. Impressive and I love it.

  33. #33 - shirley Kett says:

    I had never seen this before its really clever my card makingc class would love it

  38. #38 - Sue Kruse says:

    I’ve really enjoyed your Inspired Barn scopes. It’s fun to tour your studio, and as a retired antique dealer I find lots of inspiration in the way you use vintage items for storing supplies and displaying finished projects. I have a little Xyron machine that’s truly fun to use, a bigger machine would be awesome.

  39. #39 - Carol Pagal says:

    This machine is awesome! With 3 grandchildren, we can have so much fun. It would get used a lot!

  40. #40 - DOTTIE cRAMER says:

    I have used other Xyron machines, but this one is really awesome. Will be looking to buy if I don’t win it.

  41. #41 - sylvia F. says:

    that is an amazing machine. I have one of the tiny orange ones but would love the bigger one for larger projects.

  42. #42 - Lori Grupa says:

    I have the small “X”-shaped Xyron, but the Creative Station is fantastic! And how handy is it that it can also laminate! Love it! Thank you for the demonstration, Cathe!

  43. #43 - Sharon says:

    Hi Cathe, I love getting your newsletter with all the projects you make. You are so creative. I like your “On Air” alerts. I can think of lots of things I would use this new Xyron Creative Station for – most involving fabric. I did not know about the new one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  44. #44 - Anne Thompson says:

    This is a really cool piece of equipment! I’ve had the smallest Xyron and love it for making small stickers. I love it that there are cartridges for laminating and magnets as well as stickers! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have this Xyron Creative Station in my craft room. Thanks for the chance to win this! Happy Crafting!

  45. #45 - vickie orlando says:

    I guess with all the mixed media pieces I have made…I never knew this machine existed. I have done all the wonderful Techniques laminating, glue stick and cutting magnets by hand if needed. How fabulous this machine would come in handy and save me so many hours of hand work. Even if I don’t win….I will surely investigate in purchasing one of these great machines. And Kathy thxs for the info on periscope. I will have to be more diligent in watching your blogs!!!!! Vickie

  46. #46 - Bev says:

    I have a small Xyron machine which I use all the time. A large one would be even better. Thanks

  47. I have one of the older creative station xyrons and I love it. I like the slim sleek design of this one a lot cause the old one takes up a lot of space. Guess I am behind on the times cause I hadn’t heard of Periscope so I am going to go check it out now! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  48. #48 - Christy Monteith says:

    Oh I would love to win this. I create stickers all the time but do it the old fashion way and this would be AWESOME. I also like the fact that it can create magnets as well. This would be a great product to have for my scrabpooking.

  49. #49 - Sheila Earhart says:

    How awesome that the new Xyron takes both the 5 and the 9 inch cartridges. I’ve always wanted one, and this is basically two in one! Love this idea!

  50. #50 - Rita Odle says:

    Would love to win this! Would add a new dimension to my photography projects and scrapbooking!!!

  51. #51 - Debbie says:

    Great deal, love that you can use both sizes which makes it so much more versatile!

  52. #52 - Heather Brown says:

    Hi Cathe , Funny this should come up on your site . I have just been talking to someone at a craft store about purchasing a Xyron machine . Not a fancy one like this but one that I can make stickers . This one would be phenomenal to own and I would be thrilled if I was the winner. I make hand crafted ornaments and wanted the Xyron to create stickers to use on the ornaments . The option to laminate a design with the Xyron Creative Station to use on the ornaments would be excellent. Fingers crossed I am the lucky one . Thanks for sharing the info on this machine . It is one I will definitely consider if i am not the lucky winner.

  53. #53 - Jennifer Knudson says:

    Thank you for sharing this great product with those of use that don’t get to the craft store often enough (too busy creating at home).

  58. #58 - Karen Piercy says:

    I enjoyed watching your Xyron demo! You are very good at ‘Periscoping’! You have a very conversational way of presenting this product. I felt like you were sitting across the table from me. Also I’m impressed with the Xyron products. I only have the 2″ one but I use it frequently. Thank you for an informative presentation!

  59. #59 - Desiree Clark says:

    WOW! I have not seen this before, so I am having a first! Looks like something I would like to have for creating magic! That’s what I tel my grand kids when we create things! Thanks for the video show how it works!

  60. #60 - Lisa Brown says:

  66. #66 - Debbie Bachman says:

    Fun! I knew that Xyron laminated; but I didn’t realize that I could use it to make stickers and magnets. Thanks! I will check it out.

  67. #67 - Debbie says:

    I need to try out this machine. Making space on my desk for one. Love the different types of cartridge options. I already have ideas for using photos and the Xyron machine but had not heard of the product before.

  68. #68 - J. DAVIS says:

    Love this idea; ingenious! Thank you for creating and sharing.

  69. #69 - laurie brandle says:

    I would love to win the creative station – so many possibilities!!

  70. #70 - Dorothy says:

    What a handy-dandy Xyron machine to have! I like that they’re incorporating the older inserts, nice touch. Thank you for the give-away! As for Periscope, I wish I could enjoy them, but the jiggling around makes me barfy. I did, however, watch part of yours. Great idea with on air sticker!

  71. #71 - Connie Ross says:

    That Creative Station looks amazing!!

  72. #72 - rk says:

    I have always wanted one of these but now, the new machine seems to have a ton more functions added to it. Lucky gal you are to have gotten to play with this machine!

  73. #73 - Bev Sprenkle says:

    Thanks for the opportunity to win…I have never even used a xyron but would luv to learn!! I enjoy your blog!
    Happy November!

  74. #74 - Bev Sprenkle says:

  75. #75 - Iveth Caruso says:

    I have learned something new today. Thank for sharing such great information, I would love to win. I love to make magnets!

  76. #76 - Trisha says:

    I like that this will use both the 9″ and the 5″ refills. I have the 9″machine, but don’t use it often. But to have the 5″ option would be great. Combining two machines into one. Can you say space-saver?

  77. #78 - Kristina Perez says:

    I like that you can use the smaller cartridges to cut down on waste.

  78. #79 - Ami Douglas says:

    Yeah!! Super cool! I’ve never seen a Xyron before! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Cheers from one Sonoma County girl to another!

  79. #80 - richelle says:

    such a cute tutorial Cathe! and a genius idea! i know a few people who might dig this idea (;


  80. #81 - Susan Graben says:

    This has been on my wish list for a while!

  81. #82 - Libbi Marchio says:

    I love Cathie Holden’s site. I am furiously making bottle brush trees as we speak. The New Zyron Creative Station looks wonderful. Would love to have one.

  82. #83 - Mary A. says:

    WoW! I have never seen this before and already love it! Thank you so much for the chance to win one!! I just started hearing about Periscope and am excited to learn more. Thank you for your blog and your emails! 🙂

  83. #84 - Jane says:

    thank you for the chance to win the Xyron, always looking for new tools for papercrafting

  84. #85 - Irene says:

    Oh to own this little gem. What great machine!

  85. #86 - Wendy says:

    Wow! Looks like fun! All the things my daughter and I could do together….

  86. #87 - Patricia Barrows says:

    Keen! I hadn’t heard of Periscope or Xyron until I received your email earlier. Periscope, is good to know about, but I don’t really post videos. On the other hand, I’ve been wanting a laminator for years. It’s been quite a while since I last priced them, having long ago categorized them as an expensive extravagance to justify for my use. I’m still using clear packing tape to “laminate”. This Xyron Creative Station is so much more than just a laminator, though. I just checked Amazon – $66.24 and “Comes loaded with one 25 foot by 9 inch Permanent Adhesive Cartridge”. That’s really not bad at all. (I just added it to my wish list.) And, of course, if I shopped around, I may even find it for less. “Available cartridges include permanent or repositionable adhesive, two sided laminate, laminate/magnet and laminate/adhesive”. I could really have a lot of fun with that. Very nifty. Thanks!

  87. #88 - Davina Starling says:

    Would love to win it! Need one!

  88. #89 - Gerry Wolfe says:

    Super… great idea to be able to use both the 5 & 9 inch cartridges. Also the handle that folds down.

  89. #90 - Christine says:

    Wow, I have never seen one of these used before though I have seen them at the store. As a sticker fanatic I keep thinking I should get one but never knew how they worked. Please put me down for the giveaway! I am envisioning tons of fun with this!!


  90. #91 - vicki dutcher says:

    This is an amazing machine! Thanks for the chance to win one!

  91. #92 - Rhonda Gillette says:

    What a fun little machine. Thanks for the opportunity to enter. : )

  92. #93 - Hilda says:

    I’ve been working on some crafting lately and I know I could do a much better job with the Xyron Creative Station! Pick my name and I’ll show you!

    And I just love your blog and Instagram!


  93. #94 - Noreen says:

    That looks so quick and easy! And there are so many possibilities for it. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  94. #95 - Stephanie M. says:

    So versatile! I can use my leftover cartridges with no waste! I would love to have this new machine! Thanks Cathe.

  95. #96 - Nita says:

    This product seems to be quite useful for many differnt projects. As a retiree I now have plenty of time to experiment with different techniques and the Xyron Creative Station would be a great addition to my tool collection. Winning this would be a delight!

  96. #97 - Erin Glee says:

    I would LOVE to get a Xyron Creative Station! I would make the “ON AIR” sticker for my Smart camera….I don’t have a smart phone.
    Thank you Cathe and Xyron!

  97. #98 - Susan says:

    Great tool for my Audio Video Tech classes.

  98. #99 - JosephineTomato says:

    I have the smaller Xyron and would love to have a larger one that still uses the smaller cartridges – brilliant!

  99. #100 - Becky Hayes says:

    This machine is adorable! I can’t wait to try one soon. I love doing crafts, but because of poor eyesight and hand mobility, I have a difficult time adding magnet sheets to paper products…plus have a difficult time putting glue on. I can’t seem to line things up right – or cut them straight!

    So, I hope I am the winner…but will be glad for the crafter that does win!

  100. #101 - Deborah Gilbert says:

    I just found your website last week and have been on for (too many) hours!! This is a wonderful little machine and I would love to win!! I am working on one of the tuts on your blog for Christmas….thank you for this giveaway!

  101. #102 - Elaine Mauldin says:

  110. #111 - Sharon Chapman says:

    I love the new machine and that one can have two diffrent sizes. Oh the things I would create. Would love to win this.

  111. #112 - Linda Hatfield says:

    I really enjoyed the Periscope, I watched it last week. I also really appreciate the project. It always feels weird to photograph someone who may not know the photo/video is being made.

  112. #113 - Gretchen Wilson says:

    Periscope, now that’s a new one on me,very interesting!!!!!!!
    Now the Xyron is not new to me, I think I still own and us the ancient one from way back when. But I so need a new one and to win one would be even better! Thanks for sharing your goodies!

  113. #114 - Robin Johnson says:

    Awesome! It would make applying stickers and magnets so easy!!! Love the cut dealie-bobber in the back! I want this!

  114. #115 - Talitha Wright says:

    How useful the Xyron Creative Station would be for my card making and crafting! I have the small sticker maker and would love to have the Creative Station. It is so versatile since it takes both a 5 or 9 inch cartridge.

  115. #116 - Pam Dahse says:

    First, I adore Cathe and what she always has to offer. All of the great ideas and inspiration always lift me up on ” those days”. I would be so lucky to win a Xyron!

  116. #117 - Donna says:

    I love Periscope! And I would love to win a Xyron Creative Station! Thank you.

  117. #118 - Marsha Milstock says:

    Cathe I must have been living under a rock lately.
    I must say I am so impressed with the XYRON Creative Station.
    My A & C room consists of Brocken pieces of potery, different colouring mediums, scissors,

  118. #119 - Michelle E. Black says:

    Loved this Cathe…very clever and I love how you are jumping into Periscope…I’m a little shy but blaze the trail girlfriend I will follow. Oh and plus I loved this machine…if I don’t win one I may have to ask Santa for it!!

  119. #120 - Lisa Theis says:

    This would be so fun for Christmas labels and tags!

  120. #121 - Loribeth says:

    I can think of lots of uses for this machine. What fun it would be. It looks so easy to Use!

  121. #122 - Rollin McGrail says:

    A machine like this gives me idea euphoria, too fun for words.

  122. #123 - Krishna says:

    Wow. I have learned so much from this one video. All very useful! First, about Periscope which I intend to check out immediately. Second, about the new Xyron machine which I could see using all the time. Third, how to make an “On Air” badge for my phone to use when I start using Periscope. Fourth, about buying flashing party lights and how to tone down their brightness. Fifth, about scotch removable squares which I see using in other applications. And, finally how much I always enjoy everything you share with us. Thank you, thank you!

  123. #124 - Jeanine cogan says:

    Wishing for a “merry makin machine”

  124. #125 - Lora says:

    Oh my goodness. I had to watch both videos. The idea to create a flashing light for Periscoping is awesome. That’s a cool way to let people know what you’re doing.

    I love that you can use the 5″ & 9″ refill on the Xyron. I’ve been trying to “decide” which size I would use the most and this just fixed the issue.


  125. #126 - Janet Movahhed says:

    I love reading your blog. You are so talented!

  126. #127 - Janet Movahhed says:

  247. #249 - Kathy Foster says:

    I started scrapbooking, card making and paper crafts 11 years ago then go very sick. Working full time after my illness drained all my energy so I was unable to do my crafting for the years since until I retired a year plus ago. There have been so many new techniques and projects that I was not aware of. I was so glad to come across your site and am in awe of all the wonderful creations you make. Your instructions are clear and easy to follow and very professional, I have an appreciation for your instruction ability. I have watched other instructors and have to sit and listen to them talk about what they will be doing all the while waving their hands all over the place and not actually showing a whole project. Though I don’t have all the items that I need to do some of the crafts I have shopping for them to look forward to and new ideas. I would love to take part in one of your workshops but I don’t live anywhere close to where they are held. Keep those creative juices flowing so all your followers can do the same.

  248. #250 - Karen says:

    Sigh ~ so many cool things to see. I love your website 🙂

  249. #251 - Debby Owens says:

  254. #256 - Vanessa Cole says:

  255. #257 - Beth Manning says:

    Xyron that uses both 9″ and 5″ cartridges, how great is that?? Think of the space I can save! Perfect!

  256. #258 - berta says:

    I have a big old clunky Xyron I have not used in ages, as I have no where in my craft room to store it and still keep it handy to use. This new size and design is great!

  278. #280 - Leanne Brandon says:

    Thanks for the great Periscope video and your always generous freebies. I am so excited about the Xyron giveaway. I have been hand making things since my kids were small–and they’re all grown up now. How far we have come from the days of clear packing tape laminating, and double sided tape stickers. Xyron Creative Station makes it so easy. What a dream!
    To quote that great thinker–Dr. Seuss☺️–“Oh, the possibilities!”

  279. #281 - Susan S says:

    This is such a cute idea to let someone know you are actually recording. Very creative. I didn’t realize Xyron’s Creative Station can use two different sized cartridges. I love Xyron!

    Wow, I’ve never heard of it before…pretty neat. Looks easy and efficient to use.

  281. #283 - Judy Petersen says:

    What a beautiful machine. I often decide not to do a project because it involves a lot of cutting or because I’m afraid the cut pieces will not be uniform. I’ve made quilts in the past that I’m not very proud of because of that. A lot of work that isn’t truly satisfying. This Wyron Creative Station would make life so much easier ! It’s on my wish list. Best scenario would be to win it !

  282. #284 - Judy Petersen says:

    Sorry for the typo …Xyron Creative Station.

  283. #285 - Keetha says:

    The Xyron looks like so much fun – lots of possibilities!

  284. #286 - judy says:

    Holy cow! The Periscope looks like a ton of fun. I can feel the creative juices flowing already – Thanks!

  285. #287 - Connie says:

    Nice machine and great contest. Count me in.

  286. #288 - Virginia says:

    Amazing! I am not familiar with this machine but see that it would be fun and useful to have. The video demo was very informative. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  287. #289 - Wendy Braswell says:

    I love watching “how to” videos, so I’m pumped to get started with Periscope! Oh my goodness could I go crazy with a Xyron! This is going on my Christmas wish list!

  288. #290 - Erin Ellis says:

    How fabulous! I have been eyeing one of these for my art studio. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.

  289. #291 - Julie Boettger says:

    WOW there is so much I could do with this machine. I love it!!!

  290. #292 - Roxy Furlong says:

    I love my little Zyron sticker maker and use it all the time. It’s especially handy when making pieces that I want to glitter. I just run it through to get adhesive on the top of a die cut, glitter it and then run it through to get adhesive on the bottom to stick it onto my project. Perfect glittering every time!
    Your’s was the first periscope that I’ve watched, I’ve been hearing about it but haven’t dived in yet!

  291. #293 - Kristie Mead says:

    I’ve always loved your projects and posts, Cathe. My favorite one that I’ve done is the growth chart ruler. Very authentic looking and fun.

    The Xyron Creative Station looks like a great tool!

  292. #294 - Donna says:

    I would love to win the Xyron Creative Station!

  293. #295 - Madeleine says:

    Wow that looks awesome! I was just lamenting the lack of laminator in my life. That would make life so much easier!

  294. #296 - Lora Monastyrski says:

    This would be great to use for upcoming Christmas presents!

  295. #297 - Sherry Baxley says:

    I’ve never used Periscope but that was a great on air sign tutorial. Thanks for the chance to win a Xyron!

  296. #298 - Arline Rowe says:

    How cool is that?!

  297. #299 - Le Probst says:

    would love to create with this

  298. #300 - SuzyMcQ says:

    Great video! Zyron really has the lamination/sticker field covered in a compact and attractive machine. Love the possibilities!

  299. #301 - Jen B. says:

    I have the tiny Xyron sticker maker shown in the background, I can only imagine what I could create with the full size model! I use the small one to turn small foam pieces into stickers when they don’t come with their own adhesive so that my Kindergardeners can complete their projects more easily on Sunday morning.

  300. #302 - Marty Casey says:

    I have about six Xyrons and love each and every one. Man I would love to be able to replace all of my machines with this beauty. I use my Xyron almost everyday for just about anything you can imagine. This is a wonderful new machine ,,,would love to win this

  301. #303 - Cindy Strickland says:

    I have just discovered periscope. What a fun way to share art and ideas like the “on air” notice. Lovely idea! Thanks!

  302. #304 - Tabitha Conwell says:

    It looks like a very thoughtfully designed product. I like the ability to do two sizes of cartridge, which would help reduce waste. Nice!

  303. #305 - Pamala says:

    I would love to have a machine like this!!! I make cards and scrapbook. Also I have an 8 yr old granddaughter who would love to work with this. Thank you for the chance. Love to read your blog.

  304. #306 - Katherine Gorshow says:

    I LOVE everything Xyron and use it in ways that you wouldn’t believe. Here’s hoping I win!!!

  305. #307 - paula corley says:

    Love this idea! Even if you are not a reporter on the go, it would let friends know you are taping! No excuses for silly behavior…..also would a removable putty work for the mounting to an iphone? just a thought…..
    Thanks for sharing,

  306. #308 - paula corley says:

    I am also going to check out Periscope and head over to Michael’s and check out one of these Xyron Creative Station Machines….

  307. #309 - Kathy says:

    Just been trying out Periscope so this is timely. Definately will be be following you there. Xyron is a great tool that I could use for my crafting. Thanks!

  308. #310 - Beth B. says:

    This little Xyron could be too fun! Thanks for the giveaway and great “On Air” idea.

  309. #311 - Becky Walston says:

    This machine is much more sleeker/streamline than the older ones. I would love to have this in my scrapbook room. Hope I win!!!

  310. #312 - Caroline Aguirre says:

    I would love to win – I am a store owner with handcrafted items. It would be so great to have a Xyron Creative Station.

  311. #313 - Susan Warder says:

    I’ve used Xyrons since they first appeared. The changeable size refills make this one even better!

  312. #314 - Barbara Forde says:

    I just found your blog through browsing other sites but I love you DIY projects.

  313. #315 - Lisa says:

    OMG! I want this so bad!!!!

  314. #316 - Elaine says:

    Loved seeing how useful a tool this can be, Cathe. Thanks!

  315. #317 - Lisa Loritz-Kieffer says:

    I am a retired teacher. I have always loved to create things for family, friends, students, etc. Now that I have so much time, I would love to win the Xyron Creative Station. I would keep my fingers and toes crossed, but I am knitting a present for a teacher friend. Thank you for this opportunity

  316. #318 - Mary Stewart says:

    Wow, I’ve never heard of or seen this machine before watching your video. It is really super simple to operate. It would also be a great help with school and holiday projects. I’d love to win it. Thanks for the chance to win this!

  317. #319 - Barb B says:

    Thanks for the video and promotion. How great is this? I feel like a dinosaur…I haven’t seen this new Xyron…nor had I seen the magnet cartridge…I’ve got to look for that. You’ve given me some creative thoughts and inspiration. This will be such fun for whoever wins. Thanks.

  318. #320 - Carol Preston says:

    I watched the Xyron video and was impressed with how easy it is to use, it’s compact size, and the many crafts it can be utilized.

    Thank you for the opportunity, I’d love to win one!

  319. #321 - P.L. says:

    My sisters and I craft together after Thanksgiving dinner every year. If I would happen to win a Xyron, that would enhance our crafting!

  320. #322 - Gayle Fischl says:

    Wow!! love the new Xyron Creative Station! 9″ and 5″ refills can be used in it – that is amazing. I would love to receive this. Thank you for the giveaway 🙂

  321. #323 - Sandy McClay says:

    Really like this post and would love to win this awesome machine!

  322. #324 - Kris Burrill says:

    Awesome machine! Endless possibilities & Fun!

  323. #325 - Kathyn A. Kofoed says:

    Wow that’s a cool machine.
    It’s a long way from the little “X” sticker maker!

  324. #326 - Lisa Garrett says:

    This is my first time seeing the Xyron! Very interesting!

  325. #328 - Paula says:

    Very cool! Love the xyron. Am excited to check out periscope

  326. #329 - ruby t says:

    This is so AWESOME.
    I am glad that it takes the same cartridges and converts to the smaller ones too. This makes so much sense. I love to make magnets and this is so convenient.
    Thanks JSIM and Xyron

  327. #330 - Melissa Winblood says:

    I don’t have any crafting “equipment” other than a glue gun and paper cutter, and have always wondered what tasks the Xyron could perform. This version seems very versatile in the dimensions and types of cartridges that may be used. Truth be told, the compact size is very attractive, and I am surprised to learn how easy it is to use! I wish I had learned about it before Halloween, but if I’m the lucky winner, I will be working on Christmas designs! Great instructional video, too, Cathy! Thanks!!

  328. #331 - carol dixon says:

    I think this a great tool at a great price! I wish I knew about this before buying a laminator for $100!!!!!!

  329. #332 - Karen Crowder says:

    Wow, the Xyron Creative station has so many creative uses. Love that it can use different size cartridges. I would love to win it!

  330. #333 - iHanna says:

    Oh gadget and toys for creative play – you can never have too many, right? This looks fun, thanks for sharing it!

  331. #334 - jenni says:

    omiholycow! i have the teeny tiny one that i so judiciously use because i can’t find the replacement tape. THIS ONE would make my creative life infinitely easier and definitely more fun! thank you for such a generous giveaway….you ARE a rock star…

  332. #335 - Kim says:

    I had not seen one of these before and was quite impressed at how light weight it seems to be and how easy it would be to store – not a big old clunky machine. It would be great fun to use and especially to make photo magnets for the entire family!

  333. #336 - Adrienne says:

    I already have (and love) several of Xyron’s smaller products but I had no idea about this new one. I’m feeling inspired by the magnet cartridges especially… So much potential!

  334. #337 - Glenda says:

    I love watching periscope and I love my small Xyron! This Xyron looks fantastic, and the 9″ width would really come in handy!

  335. #338 - Dawn Kramer says:

    Wow, two sizes in one. I have the Zyron 500 where I saw it on QVC years ago when they had scrapbooking days. I went out and bought one. So I’ve had mine for quite awhile. I love this newer one because of the 2 different sizes you can use. Also it’s more compact and takes less space. I’ve used mine for scrapbooking and now I want to use it on other crafts. The photo magnet you showed was a good idea. Thanks for offering this great giveaway.

  336. #339 - Anita T. says:

    Enjoyed this video. I would love to win this for myself and for my oldest granddaughter who is about to start her teaching career. Surely an elementary school teacher needs this!

  346. #349 - Alice says:

    This Xyron is so freeing. The size and weight of it are great for small craft spaces. And I can see how very useful the cartridge exchange can be . Looking forward to having onE of my own.

  347. #350 - Lynda says:

    I used to own a beautiful Xyron. I magnetized, laminated, glued, & sometimes a combination of all three. My kitchen was an alpha cook’s dream heaven, with everything labeled, tagged and in it’s own spot. My Xyron was a joy to have, easy to use & one of my most prized crafting possessions.
    After the SWAT team, the move, the landfill, switching cities & the divorce… I am completely adrift without my Xyron. It disappeared in the chaos. My life is now an unorganized mess. Please help…
    Xyronless in the City

  348. #351 - Mary Maycock says:

    Love this new machine. I use the small one to make stickers, but this looks like a “must have” crafting item. Thanks for a chance to win it!
