For this bag I started with a cut file from Silhouette.  When making these bags and other 3D projects I love using the Tombow liquid adhesive.  This liquid glue ROCKS for all your paper projects!

Here is a close up of the hat.

Harvest Feast Layout from Suzanna Lee

Thanksgiving for some of us, is around the corner. A month away! A month to think about what’s for lunch or dinner, where you will be, if and how you will decorate, etc. There is nothing more seasonal when it comes to Core’dinations cardstock than Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Seasonal Impressions! I have another Seasonal Impressions Thankful layout to share with you. Last year, I used Thankful No.21 and this year I am going with Thankful No. 19.

Harvest Feast Layout Supplies:

Step 1: Ink the pre-embossed Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions. This lighter color pre-embossed cardstock was a bit more difficult to see than the darker colors. Typically with Core, you sand with your Sand It Gadget to reveal the core color and have a two tone cardstock. In order to better see the pre-embossed words, rather than sanding, I used my Tim Holtz ink blender to rub color over the embossed words. You can see that better here:

Step 2: Add some Core Tags! Using Core Tags on your layouts is a great way to add journaling or a decorative element behind or around your photos as well! If you happen to have some of May Arts Burlap Center Stitch Ribbon, it makes a perfect compliment to the Core Tags! Perfect for a fall or Thanksgiving themed layout!

I just love the background that the pre-embossed Seasonal Impressions creates! Such an incredibly effective background without using patterned paper!

Decorative Tag Storage Box

Hi there Core Fans!  It’s Joann and I am so excited to be here today.  Do you love making tags as much as I do?  One of my biggest problems is that whenever I want to make a tag I can’t seem to locate where I put them last in my craft room so I decided to make a fun little box to store my tags.

Tag-storage-Box-CoredinationsTag storage box supplies:

To make the tag storage box, follow these easy steps:

Step 1. Cut a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Cardstock 9 3/4″ x 9″ and place on your Scor board with the 9″ side at the top of your board.  Scor on the 3″ and 6″ marks and then rotate the Cardstock so the 9 3/4″ side is on the top.  Scor on the 1/2″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/4″ and 9 1/4″ marks from top to bottom.  Scor at the 3/4″ and 9″ marks for only the top and bottom sections.  This will allow the box to fold closed easily.

Step 2. Cut on the scor lines as shown.  The extra portions on the 4 corners have been removed and there is now a cut on the 3″ and 6″ lines from Left to Right up to the middle piece which will be the bottom of the box.

Step 3. Using your Sand It Gadget & Dust Buddy, sand and remove the dust for that perfect Vintage look!

Step 4. Finally, cut, emboss and sand centers for your tags and assemble the box and then attach a tag to the front of the box so you know exactly what the box is for!
