My latest obesssion

I took a card making class on Saturday and the instructor had this cool little machine called a Xyron.
I know, I was pretty excited myself. Anyway, I rushed wildly out and purchased the 1 1/2 inch wide version today and have run amock turning ribbon, feathers, whatever into a sticker! You just shove it in one end and it comes out a sticker on the other end!. Bob, alas, would not fit because I really wanted to stick His Goofiness on a wall somewhere to keep him from "helping" me.
The 1 1/2 inch wide Xyron is $9.99 and the replacement cartridges are $4.99. You can make your stickers as long as you want, but with this version, they can only be 1 1/2 inches wide. Of course they make wider sizes, and the cost runs up to $120.00, but I felt starting small was the best course of action.
PS - I bought the purple sparkley one. I am kinda over pink.

I didn't see the bright yellow one because I would have certainly picked that!

There is nothing more uplifting than a new gizmo and/or gadget!
I have the really old version but I'm trying to stick with it since it still works even though I'm embarassed to say it is.......... gray.

Gray is good! It's the new neutral! I just felt like the sparkley pink one was way too Hellp Kitty for me!

It figures that I know three women that own one of these. Therefore I cannot take responsibility for my own desire to turn random pieces of scrap into stickers.
