Okay..now here’s that inspo!!!!
Ava here to share with you a cute little Christmas Decor item that you can make using the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral collection. Snip a few pieces of greenery from outdoors and you have a great table center piece or home decor item.
Search the internet images for pattern’s or check out Coats and Clark for this great reindeer pattern.
Emboss, sand and cut out two pieces of each pattern for each of the reindeer. You need a front and back which is glued together.
See how nice the inner core of the Core’dinations Cardstock matches so well with the paper pieced antler color of the Core’dinations Neutral collection?
Have some fun creating your own home decor items from the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral Collection. Decor items can be so vogue with sanded matching color tones.
Emboss a strip of paper approximately 2.5 “, tape some christmas washi tape to the backside sand the front to reveal the core and trim your paper strips to the width and size of your choice. Add a rolled stem and some ribbon and you are good to go.

Get that “Pin It” button ready! We have some AH-mazing Thanksgiving/Fall inspired table decor for you today featuring our Tim Holtz Shattered cardstock.
First up Designer Ava Gavloski created this amazing tablescape. How cool will this look on your Thanksgiving Day Table?
Autumn is a bouquet of colors which truly is magical to watch as you stroll down the country side roads and city parks. The fresh cool air of autumn brings memories to warm everyone’s heart. Designing with the Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered collection during this sunny day of Autumn has set the ambiance for a thankful Thanksgiving.
Below you will see all the leaves that I distressed.
a) This line you see the green leaves cut out straight up from the paper. B) this side presents the harvest orange, crumbled and sanded leaves green leaves were made by first crumbling the cardstock, sanding and then die cutting the leaves out. C) this line of leaves shows the differences from inked and die cut to crumbled and sanded before die cutting the leaves. D) this sample is taking the cherry bright cardstock , crumbled, sanded before die cutting.
And some close ups:
Look at all that gorgeous Shattered cardstock!
And one more of the distressed, crumpled leaves:
Tim Holtz Shattered Collection Kraft Core, Sand It Set, Helmar, 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, Ranger Distress Ink, Ripe Persimmon , Procraft cuttlebug, Leaves die 37-1214, Thrift store: candle, tray and candle holder
Next a Fall themed topiary from Designer Shaunte Wadley! The large flower is just a scalloped shape piece of cardstock (you can use a die for this or a cutting machine) and then scored and folded. For a similar project that I did for Christmas check out Debbie’s Dares blog for more!
These are pretty easy to make. Just take 4 circles and cut off the bottoms to make a straight line (this is how they will stand up on their own). Scor down the middle and fold. Then adhere them back to back around a stick (I use kabob skewers that I cut down) to make the little pumpkings. Ink the edges so they really pop.
How fun is it to take a different perspective on things? I love how Designer Ava Gavloski does it…see that hand-stamped image that Ava cut out? It’s a witch! How cool is that? Ava just layers and layers and layers…it’s amazing!!!
And since we are living in color today…we have some gorgeous creations from designer Kate Nolan Denham, too!

First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!
You can see the beauty of the Core’dinations inner core with each page being embossed and sanded. The Authentique pattern papers match perfectly with Core’dinations cardstock.
This Authentic Tradition collection is truly a complete collection to allow for a finished album without the need to purchase additional supplies.
The Authentique sticker elements embellished the album by bring back memories of our Christmas Eve Celebration.
Today Ava Gavloski created an awesome tag that has a really masculine feel to it. I don’t know about you but I could really use more of these for those last minute gifts for the men in my life!
I used the Darice Birch embossing folder to give some weathered board texture and the tearing of the Core’dination cardstock gives the feel of waves rolling to shore.
I heat embossed the balloon using my Darice heat tool. I laid down the TCW stencil and used Ferro from Viva with a putty knife on top and smoothed it over … a technique I learned from CHA! The ferro is charcoal color and I got it from Hobby Lobby. I wish computers would allow you to touch the card bc the ferro makes the card 3d almost because it dries hard. It’s like a putty paste . It seriously is THE COOLEST stuff!!
