First up we have a layout from Designer Kate Nolan-Denham:
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year!  Definitely a time to for me to be imaginative and have fun.  The Halloween layout I am sharing today shows a fun way to use Core’dinations Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions as a fantastic background.
To make the words POP on the background, I not-so-gently sanded all the words on the Halloween Seasonal Impressions Cardstock and theen added some chalk.  I really wanted the Kraft-Core to absorb the color in the orange and blue Chalking Inks so giving it a good sanding is the key.

The title work was super easy!  I cut the title out of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Black Magic with my Cricut and then sanded it like crazy so the blue background would play on the title.

DIY Simple and Elegant …we promise!

Hello, everyone!! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back to share another project with you! Today, I have what I like to call “FairyWare”….a lot like “silverware”, but for fairies. My son and daughter love Disney’s fairy movies, so that is where this inspiration came from.  This idea is perfect for ANY kind of party…birthday…holidays and more!

FAIRYWARE

Fairy silverwareThis is simple simple simple. All I did was take wooden silverware and decorate it with David Tutera’s beautiful collections, the butterflies and borders pack. It is as simple as hot gluing them onto the silverware. Then I took a plastic bottle my kids had left over from their milk, took the wrapper off, washed it out and adhered David Tutera’s butterflies and white lattice background. This set, unfortunately for my kids, had to be shipped off to HSN, but we will surely be making some more “fairyware” soon! Have a crafty day! 

 

Next up I have a Clean And Simple card to share with you. This card was created using David Tutera’s line which is made from Coredinations Cardstock, just in case you didn’t know. I love all different styles of card making, but with two small kids, lately I have been sticking with CAS. I think it is important to Thank people with a handwritten note. Today it is so easy to send a text message or email thanking someone, which I do, but my favorite is a handmade card.

Keep in mind this can be applied to invitations…Christmas cards..you name it! 

Thank you card

 

Sometimes I feel so rushed to make cards or I’ll make one and the person doesn’t seem to appreciate it the way I thought they would and then I feel like I wasted 2 hours of my life making a card they really don’t care about. This card solves both of those problems. David’s line is quick and simple. He has it laid out for you. Basically, you supply the adhesive and it takes 5 minutes  to make the card. I used David’s white card base, flower pack and sentiments. All found here on his page exclusive ot our website.  Quick. Simple. Fabulous! Have a crafty day!

Fall is here and we are all about scarves..sweaters..all things warm including coffee!  Well, Suzanna really made this layout in July and it’s of iced coffee but that’s okay ;)  That allows me to  point out the fact that she used her brown journal marker right on her Core Amour…it’s pre embossed but that’s okay! Don’t be afraid to embrace that texture and write right over it ;)

And can we just talk about the perspective of that photo? What a beautiful shot.

What else  screams fall but picking currants?  Designer Shaunte Wadley adds so much gorgeous detail to this layout using her Lifestyle Crafts dies and Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered cardstock. The Graphic 45 are the perfect touch to add vintage  elements to this project.

Creating well-balanced layouts with Mary Pat Siehl

Today we have some really great layouts from Designer Mary Pat Siehl. She always creates really well-balanced layouts and mixes and matches her Core! For the first layout she creates balance bu using circles and her Silhouette. For the second layout….check out how she works those Core TAGS! You are going to love love it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of my favorite things about Core Cardstock is that it cuts beautifully in the Silhouette. For my layout I cut out the background using the white in the Nuetral collection. I then took my 1 inch punch and cut out 81 circles to fill the negative spaces. Core cardstock has so many colors to coordinate with your pattern paper so I punched 63 circles using the Core cardstock (some were embossed and I lighty sanded them and some I left with their solid color) and only 18 with pattern paper. I then matted my photo using my Core Cardstock that I scored and lightly sanded to frame the photo. Finally I scored the 12×12 sheet to frame the circle background.

Core Cardstock is really amazing because you can do so many things with it.  I used the Core Essentials Snowflake cardstock and scored it to give it a slight frame.  Next I misted it lightly just to add a hint of color.  I then also stamped directly on it.  The cardstock is awesome for all these “On Trend” techniques.  I then made a banner with the different Core Tags.  I just love the different sizes and here I embossed all the tags with different embossing folders and then lightly sanded them.
