So we have been snowed in for the last few days and our kids parties won’t be happening until Monday so this is GREAT for a last minute Valentine this weekend!
Hi there! Jill from http://everydayisanoccasion.com here to share a fun Valentine project you can do with your kids. If your kids like to paint like mine do then this project will be right up their alley!
Kids Core Valentines
This project occupied my kids for quite some time and it is a project you don’t have to hover over them. They can do it themselves. My children are 4 and 2 and so I love finding projects like this!
How to Make Core’dinations Valentines
Materials: 110 lb White Core’dinations Cardstock, Toilet paper tube, and paint
Step 1. Fold Toilet paper tube to look like a heart and dip into paint
Step 2. Allow paint to dry and then cut up and embellish. We used some Darice Heart stickers in the dollar bin at Target.
Step 3. Pass them out and enjoy
It’s not too late to put together some quick and easy David Tutera Celebrate cards for that special someone in your life!
Start with a Red Step One base. Emboss a Step Two Zig Zag Edge sheet with an embossing folder of your choice. Then cut a piece from the Step Two Silver Metal embossed collection. Mat it with a black sheet from the bulk cardstock collection. Attach all to your card base. Then place your sticker onto another piece from the black sheet (one sheet should be able to mat both of these). Attach it to to your card. Then pick two different size flowers from the Step three flowers collection. Attach and add a large Rhinestone.
And next up Designer Jennifer Edwardson!
Hey there !! Today I’ve got a super cute little card to share ….. I often love the sweet size of an A1 card as it’s just a touch smaller than the A2 but still gives you a great space to create on the front of your card.
Because the David Tutera collection is created using Core’dinations cardstock, I ran my card base through my eBosser with a large embossing folder so I could sand off the top layer and show the dimension of the dot pattern…..
I took (3) white cardstock tags and adhered them at different heights at the bottom of the card and then gently trimmed off the excess. I wanted them to stand out a little more so I added some faux stitching along the edges using my black journal pen.
The Step 3 embellishment pkgs have some super cute pieces in them so it was easy to add a couple of cute little hearts to these tags and a chip sentiment too !!
And since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, what better way to get ready in a flash then David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system. You can put these cards together a quickly and easily as 1-2-3. So if you are last minute, like me, then this system is perfect for you!
Designer Trine Brandt-Lassen created these for cards and tags in a flash!
Trined used the BACK of the Step 2 Silver embossed layer so it looks debossed.
And these are some of the brand new embellishments. Just pop these little postage stamp die cuts, sand and adhere!
Today is ALL about David Tutera Celebrate and DesignerJennifer Edwardson:
With Valentine’s Day almost here I have been using LOTS of red and pink and white and kraft Core’dinations cardstock !!!
I started with an A7 (5 x 7″) kraft cardstock card base and added a piece of Bronzed Glitter Silk cardstock and adhered it towards the right edge.
I love love love my embossing folders and have been waiting to use these heart themed ones for Valentine’s Day !! I used a piece of Barn Door from the Tim Holtz and Ranger Distress Collection and ran it through my embossing machine and lightly sanded of the top to really have the pattern stand out ……
For the large heart I used a piece of Antique Vanity from the Whitewash Collection and put it through my eBosser. I sanded off the top to show the pink color and then used my precision scissors to cut around the detailed edge of the heart. I raised it using 3D foam off to the right edge of the base and added a smaller red heart on top as well !!
I wanted to add a bit of ribbon to this card and chose this shear white American Crafts which worked perfectly with the whitewash cardstock ….. some alpha stickers to create a sentiment and this card is ready to give on the big day )

I started with a kraft A2 card base and adhered this pre-embossed layer with a circle that was the perfect place to add this sweet Step 3 chip shape for my ‘love’ sentiment !!
I adhered a few Step 3 tiny flowers using 3D foam and added an adhesive backed pearl to the center of each to finish it off – ‘love’ it !!!
For my 2nd card I started with a burgundy A2 card base and ran it through my eBosser using a large embossing folder to add a little dimension.
I added a couple of die cut butterflies and a chip shape sentiment to finish off this simple yet sweet card that can be used for almost any occasion )

Happy almost Valentine’s Day !!! Today I have some super cute and easy treat containers to share with you ……
Like most girls, I like a little sparkle in my life and the Core’dinations Core Couture Glitter cardstock is PERFECT as it has just the right amount of shimmer and it DOESNT RUB OFF !!
For my Treat bag I used this fun glitter cardstock and for the little box I used my fave spotted jillian dot (love this cardstock )
Both of these are Silhouette cut files. Core’dinations cardstock works like a dream with this digital cutting system. Quick and easy cuts that were ready to fold into shape and get embellished !!
I gently sanded the dotted cardstock BEFORE i ran it through the Silhouette. This makes it easier so that you don’t tear the smaller notches and tabs that come with a box like this.
I used the negative heart shapes from the larger glitter bag to help embellish the white cardstock tag and then added a sentiment sticker to finish it off.
I just love this little bag …. so perfect for chocolate treats, cookies or gift cards too !! I added another Core’dinations tag that I embellished with a scalloped shape punch using red Core Essentials cardstock and added a heart shaped sticker and tied it on using white sheer ribbon ….. such a fun bag for any occasion !!!
- Core Couture Glitter Cardstock – Stiletto
- Spotted Jillian Dot Cardstock – Roasted Pepper
- Canvas Textures Tags – White Medium

We have some fun and festive Valentine’s Day home decor projects for you from Designer Mary Pat Siehl to share with you today that you are going to LOVE! Pun intended
I love Valentine’s Day and I love to decorate my house to fit this holiday. Core is really perfect for making all your home decor needs. For my first project I made a message board. In my kitchen I have an 8×10 photo frame and the glass functions as a dry erase board. I love to leave messages to my kids and also make to do lists. For my Valentine’s Day message board I started off with a base of the Core Gemstones in Opal. I then cut out 3 hears in ruby red and pink diamond. I then ran them through my Cuttlebug embossing folders just to give them an embossed look. I then cut out the xo in onyx cardstock.
Silhouette – basic heart, pacifico font
My next project is perfect for my mantel. I found this frame on sale and thought it would be so fun to make my own journaling cards style photo frame. I really got to have fun with my core for this project and really got to sand the cardstock. I love the blackboard effect and made on box using the Core essentials Nightfall and sanded it to give the blackboard look. One of my favorite things about Core’dinations is that no matter what collection you use they all work together so well. For this project I used papers from the Essentials, Tim Holtz Adirondack collection, and Glitter Silk!
Silhouette- Arial font, basic arrow, basic heartt
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you have fun making your own home decor items! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
