Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created this beautiful layout using this month’s colour palette.
The palette …
And Lydia’s design…
Gorgeous. Love the mix of Vintage and Core Essentials cardstock and how Lydia used the backside of the lattice print from the Pink Paislee Core Impressions line. Don’t be afraid to mix your own embossing folders and the Core Impressions line like Lydia did here. Looks BeauTiFul!

Today we have a Thanksgiving Day wreath from Designer Ellen Sosnoski.
There are only a few easy steps for this easy project. First, wrap burlap (from MME) around a wooden base. I am using an old “O” that I bought to alter for my son’s room. The intention was for us to do it together but he didn’t find it as exciting as I did so we are using it for a Fall Wreath today with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core and Sizzix dies.
You may need to play with it a bit to make sure the end is on the back. Use your Glue Arts Square Adhesives to attach. They worked perfectly!
I used about the Adhesive Squares to attached the leaves…
And a close up of the leaves. They were embossed, then spritzed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and then sanded. To get them to stand up, I used the 3D UCut it squares.
We cannot wait to see what you create with Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock and Glue Arts!
Thank you Thank you for a fantastic week. Please make sure you stop over at Glue Arts and give them a big shout out.
Come back Monday for some Canadian Thanksgiving ideas and some winners!
