A few personal thoughts/tips from Beth Kingston (me):

While we continue to feature (and love) scrapbook layouts and cards - this year we also are focusing on the "everyday" uses of Xyron. Do you use them for kids crafts/school projects? Organization? Home Decor? We want to hear all about it! Be sure to highlight those kinds of projects when choosing what links to send.

Are you a blogger looking for a partnership/sponsor? This might be perfect for you! In addition to TONS of free product (ask any of our current DTers just how much!) Xyron pays $50/month for your blog posts. Will that make you rich? Nope. :) But many companies only pay in product so this is a great way to get your foot in the door if you are interested in getting paid for sponsored posts. You also get the opportunity to see your projects featured on HSN (and you get paid for those too!) - which is a nice little perk! The Xyron FB page over 130,000 fans so it is also a great way to drive traffic to your blog and FB page.

Do you teach craft classes or run a small craft business? As a Xyron DT member you get wholesale pricing on all of our products without having to meet a minimum or opening a business account!

Please feel free to post here if you have any questions. The Xyron Design Team has always been a GREAT group and Xyron is such a fun company to work with - I hope to see some of you on the new team!
