From Halloween to Thanksgiving and even Christmas…you will see festive projects to get those creative juices flowing and hopefully give you some ideas for this time of year.

And of course…there are give-a-ways!!! All three companies will giving away tons and tons of goodies this week so make sure you head over to the Petaloo Blog and May Arts Blog for details and inspirational projects.

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program?  We sure do!  We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers.   How easy is that???

So are you ready for some projects???

Don’t forget to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win a Core’dinations prize pack!!!

Today we have some Thanksgiving and Fall Inspired  projects from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Melissa used her Fiskars Paper Crimper for this tag…

Let’s talk about these flowers and leaves. First off the cluster is awesome. Add some cool vintage buttons from your stash and you have a gorgeous embellishment.  And did you notice the leaves are May Arts ribbon?  Melissa cut them into leaf shapes and then held them near a flame (PLEASE be careful if you try this at home) to melt the edges so they won’t fray. And it just gives is a really cool, rustic look. Add some ink to your Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions after you sand it to help accent the different colors in your layout.
