chalk core giveawayHi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am really excited to be here today.  Recently my niece was over and wanted to watch the Disney movie Cinderella. We managed to find an animated copy of the movie and when the horse drawn carriage showed up her eyes widened with excitement.  It was at that moment that I know that I have to make one for her.  We are also doing a blog hop with Petaloo and Xyron so I will be featuring some of their lovely products in the post. To make this carriage I came up with a few steps in addition to those that come with the file.

Pumpkin-Carriage-CoredinationsPumpkin Carriage Supplies:

Step 1. Cut out all your pieces and assemble the carriage, lid, base and wheels.  The wheels are actually 12 layers thick so they are really sturdy.  I prefer to build my projects out of White Card stock but you can always use whatever cardstock you desire, just make sure it is at least 80 weight paper.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step1Step 2. Distress all the exposed edges.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step2Step 3. Emboss all your panels.  I wanted my carriage to have that pearlescent sparkle to it so I did not sand the embossed ridges.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step3Step 4. Attach the panels to the carriage, it does not matter what order you do it in.

Pumpkin-Carriage-Step4Step 5. Cut your final trim pieces and attach them to the carriage as well.

 Thanks card supplies:

  • Core Basics: Kraft and 110 lb. smooth
  • Petaloo flowers
  • Xyron adhesive
  • Heidi Swapp mist
  • Studio Calico mist
  • Simon Says Stamp clear stamps
  • Memento tuxedo ink
  • Stampin’ Up ink
  • Spectrum Noir markers

P1090732(1)

For my card I used the Core Basics collection.  I think I am totally hooked on the yummy Kraft and I don’t think I can make a project without using the 100 lb. smooth cardstock.  I then added some stamped images and the finishing touch was the addition of the beautiful Petaloo flowers.

Here is a  close up of my flowers and pumpkins.

I made a video for you on how this card came about.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Give Thanks Layout by Christine Meyer

I always love the opportunity to get a favorite picture onto a layout and stored as a lifetime memory – today I have a fall layout to share with you featuring products from Core’dinations, Xyron, and Petaloo that does just that.  Christine joining you today to share a layout of some of my kiddos with their Grandma enjoying a fall tradition – leaf piles.

CorePetalooXyron copy

Give Thanks Layout Supplies:

CorePetalooXyron 5Step 1: Emboss your tags and then deboss them by using your Sand-It Gadget.

Step 2: Cut out the center of the Seasonal Impressions cardstock – leaving just a one inch border.  Sand the border and use the Xyron Mega Runne to add Spotted Cardstock underneath as the base.

Step 3: Add Tags and Red Cardstock to create the center of your layout use the Xyron 3 Inch Sticker Maker.  Add Petaloo trims to the Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker and then attach them above and below. CorePetalooXyron 6Step 4: Run the vellum quote thru the Xyron 3 Inch Sticker Maker.  This is the best way to attach vellum because it doesn’t show up at all! Add the vellum to the tag. CorePetalooXyron 2Step 5: Put the picture on top of the Kraft cardstock and center it.

Step 6: Add a die cut banner and Embellish the corners with Petaloo Darjeeling Flowers. Xyron’s High Tack Adhesive Dots make attaching small flowers like this an easy job! Products like this make it both easy and fun to put together a layout that we can cherish forever!

Count Your Blessings Layout by Suzanna Lee

Do you have those family dinner table picture that we all take at Thanksgiving, and once you finally seen them think, “ugh! how am I going to scrap that?”. Well fret no more! I have the solution for you. First, convert your picture to black and white. The conversion will soften the clash between Auntie Rose’s purple hair and Grandpa Jack’s hot pink tie and allow you to use the colors of your choice in your layout, just as I did here!

CorePetalooXyron_Layout_SuzannaLee

Count Your Blessings Layout Supplies:

Step 1:To create both bases of your layout, you will need your trusty Core’dinations steeds; your Sand It Gadget and your Dust Buddy. Sand the edges of the the Basic Grey Core Impressions and wipe the dust with your Dust Buddy to reveal the colored core. If you would like a bit more definition to the border of the page, as I did, then use some Distress ink around the edges. Fussy cut out the Jenni Bowlin Square Label paper and similarly, sand and dust it.CorePetalooXyron_SIGandDB_SuzannaLee

Step 2: Layer a long banner cut from Tim Holtz Shattered cardstock that you sanded and rubbed with some Distress Paint with your picture, Petaloo flowers and some die cut leaves. The PERFECT adhesive to stick Petaloo flowers down with is Xyron’s adhesive dots! They come in two sizes, 3/16 inch which is perfect for the little daises I used on the bottom, right hand corner of my page and the larger, 3/8 inch dots for the larger Petaloo flowers!CorePetalooXyron_PetalooClose_SuzannaLee

Step 3: Whatever was not put together with Adhesive Dots, was put everything together with my Xyron MegaRunner! I just love the ability to drop in the cartridge and set to work. No fuss running tape here, there and everywhere or having it snap and need to be re-thread mid-project! Just remove the spent cartridge and pop in a new one and you are good to go!CorePetalooXyron_XyronDots_SuzannaLee

Hello again, fellow Core lovers! It’s Gini, and today I have an upcycling project to share with you, using some of my favorite products. With a little help from Core’dinations, Xyron and Petaloo, I was able to transform a lowly Pringles Chip container into a dispenser for cosmetic cotton rounds.

A Thing of Beauty Supply List:

product

Step 1.  Measure around your container and cut paper to fit.

Step 2.  Draw a template for your opening on scrap cardstock. Cut in the center of the paper as well as the canister.

Cut Outs

Step 3.  Stamp decorative border at the top and bottom of the paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with gold powder. Tip: Sometimes metallic embossing powders leave a residue.  Use the Dust Buddy after embossing to remove this powder.

Step 4.  Run the paper through the Creative Station machine to apply adhesive. Carefully adhere to the canister, lining up the openings.

Step 5.  Ink the back of the vellum quote with metallic gold.  Die cut a frame using the Glitter Silk cardstock.

Step 6.  Use the small tape runner to apply adhesive to the back of the frame. Center quote and trim the excess.

Step 7.  Cut a circle to match the top of the canister.  Add trim around the top and bottom of the canister and lid to hide the raw edges.

Step 8.  Spritz the flowers with gold and let dry and add the embellishments to the canister to finish as shown.

So remember, look at your empty containers with a creative eye, before you take out your trash!  See you soon.

ChalkCore Family Frame

Core’dinations Chalk Core Cardstock is gorgeous. With chalkboard home decor being so popular today, it is a perfect addition to your crafting stash! If you haven’t tried it yet, I hope this project will make you want to!

Chalkboard Family Frame Supplies:

Step 1: Use a simple black 8×10 frame and cut four (4) 1/2″ strips of White Core Chalk Core, sand them,  and Mod-Podged the strips to the perimeter of the frame. The frame already had a photo mat that came with the frame so cover the photo mat with White Core Chalk Core and sand it.

Step 2: Use a sheet of Colored Core Chalk Core  for the inside of the photo mat. ISand it, and adher it to the cardboard frame backing.

Step 3: Then, using a variety of flower punches and the Colored Chalk Core  decorate the frame.

Core’dinations Chalk Core pairs well with Core’dinations Whitewash Cardstock. They both have a subtle “chalky” look. Mix in some of that with the flowers as accents and leaves and  some fun self adhesive pearls and rhinestones to the flower centers.

Step 4: Cut the banner and the title with your Silhouette electronic cutting machine or any other machine you have.

Step 5: Attaching the photo:  I used a heavy duty glue dot behind a metal clip. This way I can switch the photo out whenever we have a current shot.

Here is a close-up of some of the flowers-you can see the fabulous texture of the cardstocks.

Can you believe this project is all cardstock? I love to create beautiful (one of a kind) things for my home that are inexpensive, and best of all- unique.  ~ Shaunte
