My Xyron Creative Station and my Cricut Explore have been getting quite the workout lately.  I've been a devoted user of both products for many, many years.  As a craft blogger, I'm always looking for ways to incorporate these tools into projects for daily life.



Many of us have kids involved in sports, band, dance.... the list is endless.  I can tell you this; kids love their name on stuff.  T-shirts, cups and even book covers for school.  I made these big 4" stickers for that very purpose - Emmah's notebooks for school.  She loves them!  I'm sorry to say, I can't claim Emmah as my own, because she's a real sweetheart, but my friend informed me that  Emmah went all nutso over these stickers.


Emmah is a star pitcher for a very well known and successful traveling softball team.  Of course, her friends are going to want some too.  Who are they going to call?  Hopefully, me! 

If you're a crafter who sells their wares, this is another fun item to make and promote.
So how did this come together?  I created and welded my design in the Cricut Design Space™ which is exclusive to the Cricut Explore, and chose the print and cut option.  I LOVE this feature!  You can design something, print it and then cut the image with your Explore.  When it prints, there are line markers when the Cricut then scans and perfectly cuts.  It's fabulous.  Truly.


 To finish off my project, I ran all my die cuts through my Xyron 9" Creative Station.   It quickly and completely covers the back of your die cut with adhesive.  It also has laminating capabilities and so much more.   The final touch is a little bit of glitter glue on the wording.  Because, glitter makes the world a happy place......  


These fun stickers are perfect for your sports fan.  Stick them on a thermos, lunch box, inside a locker, on school notebooks.  Get creative and make one for every member of the team!
