Charlotte created THE cutest monsters! Aren’t these guys adorable? They are colorful, full of texture and down right festive! Char used her Cricut and the Mini Monster cartridge to create these little guys. Next, she ran them through her Cuttlebug with various embossing folders to create the cool textures. Just add a little sanding and some googley eyes and you have the perfect project for Halloween. (P.S. Make sure you scroll down for our Facebook contest we announced today)
Here they are individually. SO CUTE!
TRICK OR TREAT!!!!

Happy Easter Weekend everyone!
Today we wanted to share with you an adorable Easter card from Rebecca Keppel. she used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to create this great pattern and then just added a touch of sanding. Just a perfect way to end the week and begin a wonderful Holiday weekend.
We Hope that everyone has a safe and happy Holiday weekend!
As part of their celebration, we have joined forces and are featuring some of the Cuttlebug Challenge blog Design Team creations here today AND you can check out their blog for some of the fabulous creations the Core’dination’s Team has made utilizing their Cuttlebugs.
Today June Houck is showing us this how to make this wonderful recycled tin. What a great way to start off the holiday season by creating this great project. Here is a little but about her project in her own words:
This is a busy time of year for everyone, and paper crafters are no exception! Hand-made gifts are the best types of gifts, but quite often a lot of time and effort is spent preparing them. I have a few quick ideas that I hope will inspire you.
paint can (local craft store), tin canister, and 16oz. jar
Cuttlebug embossing folder (Candy Cane), Scor-it, glue gun
Designer paper and coordinating Core’dinations papers
Punches: 1/2″ circle, 2″ circle, small & large ovals, word window
Dies: QuicKutz Revolution flourish, QuicKutz Vixen, CTMH circles and Nestibilities circles
I created toppers for each container using various dies. The “You’re Sweet” is computer-generated and “You’re My Cup of Tea” is an Impression Obsession stamp. The “lights” on the paint can are CTMH stickers. I wrapped both of these with paper from Carol Wilson Fine Arts, Inc. What is inside? I have tea biscuits in the paint can and mint tea in the tin…perfect for a chilly winter day.
I found recipes for both food and non-food items by doing a Google search for “gifts in a jar”. There are recipes for lots of things from sweets to bath salts! Many of these items are for 1 quart containers (4 cups). My jar is a recycled pickle or mayonnaise jar, which is only 2 cups. I adjusted my recipe accordingly.
So before you toss a jar into the recycle bin, think of the possibilities for gifts for good neighbors, teachers, and friends!
Linda Beeson created this adorable card for Thanksgiving next week for those of us in the United States that are celebrating…it is just too cute.
Linda utilized her Fiskars crimper. It is one of the most versatile tools you can get to work with Core’dinations Color Cardstock. It is easy and you can do so many things with it. She used Paprika cardstock, a gorgeous color for this time of year!
