Have you heard of the crafting machine called the Glaminator?

Laura Kelly came to The Hedgehog Hollow Studio and brought her Glaminator!  You may know Laura from her creative Instagram handle @laurakellydesigns or her website www.meandmyinkings.com

Laura and I crafted Halloween Cards using the Glaminaotor.  This Xyron crafting machine is a 3-in-1 foil applicator and laminater.

Laura and I attended Bloggy Conference in Cedar Point, Ohio in September.  Since she lives out of state, she flew here to Ohio and stayed a few days with us and The Hedgehog Hollow family.  You can see in our crafting video, how much fun we had filming together in the studio!

~The Crafting Community Family is One of Kind~

The Halloween DIY card we crafted in our YouTube video below uses Xyron’s new release of foil colors.

Basic colors are:

Metallic transfer colors are:

The images we used to foil onto our homemade Halloween card were from Laura’s designed printables.  She is even offering them to you for free!  All you have to do is download them from this blog.  Laura is offering the other half of her Halloween printable on her blog.  So after you download the first half here, click to her blog here to download the second half!



This machine was very simple to use for the first time.  I’m confident you will find the same result.  We had our own learning curve though!  We first used regular printer paper and the designs printed patchy.  Laser paper is the way to go.  The Glaminator applied solid foil designs and looked great on laser paper.

The top tip is Laser Paper over Printer Paper.

Laura also brought her designed paper patterns by Adornit.  We used the designs she brought to make envelopes!

The Adornit designs are 2-sided.  We used Black & White Dots and Orange Check.

We applied PURPLE FOIL to the bat design sentiments with this crafting machine.  RED FOIL is what we used for the Ghost and “You Kill Me” sentiments.

Place your Xyron foil on top of your designs & card and run it through the Glaminator.  We found it works best if you let the card cool for a few seconds before peeling.

After our Halloween cards were ran through the machine, we cut them to the right size.  Cut your background card a little larger than your top card stock.  We used satin black for our first card and purple cart stock for our second Halloween card craft project.

I had so much fun crafting with Laura.  She’s the type of person who brings positive energy into every room!  I am glad I had the opportunity to show you all how to use the Glaminator.  It is a very user friendly crafting machine.

Xyron who makes the Glaminator, also make a Sticker Maker machine I love.  You can check it out HERE if you’re curious about crafting your own stickers.

I can’t wait to film with Laura Kelly Designs again!  Watch us use the Glaminator and have loads of fun!
