Hi everyone!  I’m Joy and today I’m super happy to be sharing this project with you using Core’dinations great products!

Supplies:

3d pencil pieces4

Step 1: Cut the pencil 3D and card shapes using Core’dinations Neutrals and Bright Color cardstock along with solid black and white.  They cut so well!  A little side note: At first I cut the pencil card background in white but later I went back and cut it out in grey to match the band near the eraser of the 3D pencil.  I thought that just looked better color-wise to match both project pieces.

Step 2: Emboss the pencil pieces as desired.  Here, I’m using the wood grain background folder.

Step 3:  Sand the pieces using the Core’dinations Sand It Gadget.  That revealed a lighter color yellow on these pieces.  That’s so cool!

Step 4: Adhere the pieces.  I used my Xyron machine to add adhesive to the backs of these pieces.  Then I added them to the pencil.

Isn’t all that sanded texture great?!

Step 5:  Create a tag.  I cut a small tag from the Core’dinations Bright Assorted Tags even smaller and backed it with a piece of Core’dinations black cardstock.

Step 6:  Stamp a sentiment.  Keep in mind that stamping on textured paper can give an uneven stamped image.  You can fill in any spotty places with a marker.  I did!

Step 7:  Sand the tag and tie ribbon to finish the look.

1st Day of School Layout and Video

Mary Pat Siehl here with you today and I am excited to share a new Back to School layout using some  Core’dinations cardstock.

Supplies:
Cardstock-Core’dinations (Core Impressions Jillibean SoupGraphic 45 Signature SeriesCore Essentials110lb. smooth)
Canvas Embellishments- Little Yellow Bicycle
Scoring Board
Spectrum Noir markers
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Lawn Fawn dies
Cuttlebug embossing folder

1. I love to layer my cardstock and so I decided to layer grey on top of light blue. I wanted to create a light chalkboard effect with the grey so I scored my grey cardstock with a scoring board and scored at the 1/2 inch line all around the paper. Then just sanded the paper pretty heavily to really expose the lighter inner core.

2. Next, I took a piece of Core Essentials and laid it on an embossing folder to create a very light embossed look to the paper strip again sanding  pretty heavily to give it a very distressed look.

3. I then took a piece of the Core’dinations Jillibean Soup Impression paper and sanded it and placed that on top of the blue piece. If you don’t have Core Impressions you could easily emboss another sheet.
4. Next I added a small strip of yellow and added that on top. (Again, I LOVE to layer my paper with different textures and designs.)
5. Add  photos.
6. Make a star embellishments using die cuts, embossing them using an embossing folder, and lightly sanded them.

I also have this video for you on how this layout came together.

Mixing and Matching Core and David Tutera

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Jennifer Edwardson here and I’ve been lucky enough to work with the David Tutera Celebrate system from the beginning and have made some super cute quick and easy cards, along with more detailed ones too but I wanted to try something a bit different this time so I encorporated bits and pieces of the David Tutera Celebrate line with Core’dinations lines, too.
Many card makers are also scrapbookers and I decided to take some of the new patterned cards and create a layout instead.  I started with a brown Core’dinations cardstock base and layered a white spotted piece slightly smaller on top.

 

I chose the colors of cards I wanted to use and made a border punched mat for my photos first. Once i had this all in place I started punching shapes from the card bases.  I used a couple different sizes of scalloped circle punched and then a tiny circle punch too.

 

I gently sanded the edges of these and then layered them on top of each other using 3D foam throughout the layout, trimming a few to a straight edge here and there as well.
I added a layered card sentiment as the title and some typewriter journaling to complete this one of Em and one of her closest girlfriends on her 13th birthday !!
