Andrea die cut the hearts for flowers from her Cricut, added some Queen & Co. pearls, and wrapped the stems in twine. Backing the title is a GREAT way to make it pop, too! Layer bits and pieces of the project to added depth. This is a great way to create your very own home decor for any holiday or season!
And GUESS what???!?!?!?!!?
OUR DESIGN TEAM CALL IS POSTED HERE!
CHECK OUT! You don’t want to miss the opportunity to design with the BEST cardstock!
Hope you are LOVING this week’s projects! We sure are. And today we a super cute AND creative card from Design Team Member Andrea Amu featuring the My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found mini collection.
How fun is this little guy? Perfect for those men in your life …or ladies….I know I would love to receive this for sure.
And a close up…the “fun” sentiment is sanded and hand cut from the My Mind’s Eye mini collection pack and so is the scalloped shape in the back (see below). So many great uses for it….
Add some glitter from Stampendous and you have a fabulous card with amazing details! Oh and don’t forget the Petaloo flower. The one Andrea used is white but they are dyed to match Core papers, too!
Today we have designer Andrea Amu with the Tuesday Tip to create a handmade gift for that special someone….grandmothers, moms,dads, teacher’s aunts, uncles…this is perfect for ANYONE!
Framed subway art! How cool is this. Just create the cuts on your Cricut or diecutting machine and viola! You have the perfect gift for anyone, anytime of year.
And Andrea has some great tips:
1.) Back the cuts in a lighter color so they really pop.
2.) Cuts don’t line up exactly how you want? Add little embellishments!
3.) AND, of course, a photo! Personalizing it will mean so much.
4.) Add a doily for that soft, feminine touch.
5.) And don’t spend a ton on a frame. Get them on sale at your craft store. You can paint them any color you like!
And a detail:

Design Team Member Andrea Amu has a gorgeous design for us today that is perfect for your Thanksgiving decor.
Interested in seeing more of this? Keep Readin!
Here is a little bit about this project from Andrea: I made some Thanksgiving Decor showcasing the beautiful Core’dinations cardstock all held together perfectly with Helmar Adhesives! All of my cuts were done using the Thanksgiving Cricut cartridge. I cut the pilgrims out at 5 3/4″ each, using Signature Series Graphic 45 Core cardstock in Photogenic and Kraft and green Core from the Tim Holtz Adirondack collection. I also cut out the pumpkin design at 2″, again using some orange Core from the Adirondack collection. That beautiful embossed word collage background is some of the new Tim Holtz collection Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions line! It’s the most wonderful backdrop for this Autumnal framed decor.
The Helmar black ZapDots 3D foam squares were great to use to add dimension to layered ares of my pilgrim and pumpkin cuts.
I love the performance of the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive! This was my first time using this glue and it won’t be my last. Seriously, where has this been all my life? It is a must have for paper crafting. Here I used it to adhere most of my layers together, to attach the ribbon to my embossed cardstock base and to apply the Stampendous Vintage Champagne Glass glitter to the centers of the Petaloo mulberry flowers. After the glue and glitter quickly dries, I applied pearl accents from Queen&Co. to each center to finish off this seasonal project.
And another close up of the flower details:
When we look out at our crafting community, it’s hard to imagine that pretty much everyone has been touched by Breast Cancer in one way or another.
Design Team Member Char Dobson created this card for us today to remember those who have fought and are fighting today. Please take a moment and reach out to someone you love today!
How much do you love Core Tags?! We sure do! Each tag comes with a beautiful, sturdy metal grommet and that awesome Core that you know and love! Char used some of the tags from the Darks collection. The core’dination perfectly with our Core Essentials Darks collection. Add some May Arts Ribbon and Graphic45 Core Impressions and you have a fabulous layout!
Design Team Member Char Dobson worked that title with some Black Magic Cardstock and her Cricut. LOVE it!
Have you had time to play with our Core Cuts?
Are team is having fun with it! Make sure you check out the Core Cuts page HERE for more idea AND some videos!
Design Team Member Char Dobson created these beautiful projects for us today! Char added some bits and pieces of her embellishment stash that matched perfectly BUT the rest is all cardstock from the Core Cuts pack. You don’t need much else, do you?
Char embossed the card base with a Provocraft Embossing folder. LOVE the contrast of the chevron print with the doilies.
