Adore Card by Shaunte Wadley

I have to admit- I have a hard time using my Petaloo Flower Stash- not because they are hard to use, they are in fact, the easiest! It seems like every project I have added them to has gone from “pretty” to “breathtaking.” They are so detailed, they make your projects look time intensive when in actuality, all you have to do is adhere them. I have a hard time using them- because I am afraid I will run out of them. There. I said it. I am a craft supply hoarder!

1-e1413492745163Adore Card Supplies:

Step 1: Cut the “Adore” frame shape using my Silhouette Cameo. I cut the frame from Core’dinations Cardmaker Series Pearls in “Tan.” This cardstock is thick and has a beautiful pearlized sheen. It cuts really nicely in electronic cutting machines, even with shapes as intricate as this one. The base of the card was cut with a Lifestyle Crafts die using Core’dinations Basics in Smooth Kraft.

Step 2: The center of the card is some Core’dinations Basics Vellum, circle cut and embossed with a swiss dot embossing folder. Here is a tip I have learned when embossing vellum. Vellum is tricky, it is hard to get the pressure correct when working with embossing and die cut machines. I have had 100 percent success by using a simple kitchen rolling pin! Insert the vellum inside the embossing folder of your choice. Make sure you are working on a flat surface. Roll the rolling pin over the embossing folder, using steady pressure. Gently open part of the folder and check on the vellum, if it is not quite even, or deep enough, roll it again.Adhere the vellum to the center of the card- using adhesive only on the edges so it will not show through.

Step 3: Then, I ran my cut frame shape through my Xyron 5″ Create A Sticker Max. I prefer to use an adhesive machine for intricate shapes like this one. Otherwise it is a very tedious job to try and apply adhesive onto all of the tiny parts of the shape.

Step 4: This card uses flowers from the Petaloo Darjeeling line- specifically the “Tea-stained Blue.” I used three of the lighter shade of flower, and four of the leaves. These flowers and leaved are thick. I found it easiest to use a little piece of Xyron Double Sided Adhesive Tape to adhere them into place.

Here is a close-up of the card:

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

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:

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 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.
