Oh yes! Project life with David Tutera Celebrate. With the last few days of fall upon us, what are you going to do with all those photos? Pumpking picking, leaves falling, Halloween…you name it…we’ve got photos for it, right?
Well we have a cool is this idea from Designer Trine Brandt-Lassen using those Step 2 layers and Step 3 embellishments.
One of our NEW chipboard pieces from the embellishment kits layered on some David Tutera Casual Elegance burlap and more bits of the Step 2 layers!
How pretty is this Step 2 Lace Grid kraft layer? Because they are made to fit the A2 size, they will work perfectly for the 4×6 areas on your Project Life albums.
In the vellum pocket, Trine used a punch of the Step 3 embellishemtns and finished it of with the “So Thankful” sticker.
Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another Kids Core project with you! Today it’s all about being grateful! This Grateful Journal can be used a couple of ways. The first way, which is how I’m going to be using it, is a mini album. Since November 1, I have been taking pictures of things I’m grateful for and posting them on Instagram. I am going to print the photos and then put them in this mini album. The second way could be used on Thanksgiving and to have everyone draw pictures or write on the page what they are Thankful for. Then at the Thanksgiving Table the journal can be read and you have a keepsake to look back on when your kids are older. Now these are just two ideas I came up with. I’m sure you have a great idea if these don’t work for you!
One thing is for sure, I love Core’dinations white core paper! The 12×12 and 110lb 8 1/2 x 11 packs are such an AMAZING quality of paper! I made this entire journal out of scratch and it’s thanks to the white core! It is so super sturdy that I felt comfortable using it as all the album pages. To create the cover I actually used a cereal box and cut it to 6 1/2 x 6 1/2. I then used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere the Vintage Core’dinations cardstock to the cardboard. To create the album pages, I just cut 15 white sheets down to 6 1/2 x 6 1/2. Then I used my cinch machine to bind all the pages together.
For the cover, I used Core tags along with some vintage sequins I was handed down from my Great Grandmother. I also used some Amethyst Colorshine. I attached some Hemptique Twine to my tag. I have to say though, my favorite thing is to print onto core. I used Shanna Noel’s thankful prints and printed them onto my 8 1/2 x11 white core. Then I used my Epiphany Crafts Round 25 tool to punch them out and I put an acrylic sticker (they go with the round 25 tool) on top.
This is all great and grand you may be saying to yourself…but what you really want to know is how is this a kids craft? Well, let me tell youwhat we did… I talked to my kids (2 & 4) about being grateful or thankful. We have read many Thanksgiving books together and discussed what it means. Then I had my kids draw pictures about what they are thankful for. My 4 year old son (on the left) said he is thankful for “ALL the leaves”. I said, “Oh you’re thankful for leaves?” He said, “No, Mom… ALL the leaves” CUTE! My two year old daughter (on the right) said she is thankful for Daddy and she said Daddy has colorful hair. LOL! I am going to add these to my Instagram pictures. Once I have them printed I will have my kids help me create the layouts with photos of them and their drawings.
Have a great day! Smiles, Jill
