Hi everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a kids craft with you today!!! I made this chapstick card. This “kids” craft is great because it can be made by little kids for their teachers or by teenagers for friends! I think it is a great little something for anyone actually!!
To create this card I used Core’dinations’ Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection, 110 lb white coredinations paper, this silhoutte cut, and some Hemptique cord.
Thanks! Have a Great day!!! Smiles, Jill
And next up we have a card from Designer Clare Buswell using more of that Gorgeous Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock! Clare really adds some great distressing details with inks and stamps. This cardstock is so great because you can use it “as is” or add your own touches to it!
We have a fun treat for you! Merry Christmas! Happy New year!

How about some inspiration from our Design Team using this fabulous line of Core’dinations!
First up we have a layout from Kate Nolan-Denham.Looks so cool, doesn’t it? Loving the red and green she used here for a cute Christmas layout:
And next up some projects from Debbie Standard using the Shattered cardstock. Love how she used the doilies on this layout and all that embossing and sanding is INCREDIBLE! You can use your Kraft-Core as is or play with it…sky is the limit.
And it works GREAT for cards, too! Debbeie added a touch of stamping with one of our Smooth Tags (they are SO great for stamping).
We are celebrating Tim Holtz this week and his Kraft-Core collection! Both the Nostaglia AND Shattered are perfect for ANY project AND we have a HUGE surprise coming up this week so STAY CLOSE!
To start of this awesome week we have some inspiration for you, too! First up is Vivian Keh working her magic with some Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered cardstock and Holiday cards. I love that she chose non-traditional color palette for these!
Hello, friends! Vivian here with a pair of holiday cards that celebrates a deep love of Tim Holtz. Did you know that Core’dinations has several collections designed by Tim Holtz? I have been going through his Kraft Core “Shattered” Collection with great enthusiasm, so much so that I’ve just about used up my entire assortment of it. The cards below use the “Shattered” Collection in conjunction with quite a few Sizzix dies that have also been designed by Tim Holtz.
For the Christmas Tree card with the background of festive boughs, I chose my colors based on the color wheel. When lacking in crafty mojo, I will often turn to the color wheel as I choose hues with which to craft, and I highly recommend doing so when you’re having trouble getting started in your crafting session. Since blues lie directly across from oranges, they just about always make a fantastic pairing, even when the tints are not what you would consider pure blues or oranges. In this case, we have a soothing greyish blue and a burnt siena which has a warm orange cast. I think they set each other off nicely.
The boughs on this card were die cut in one pass using a strip of Shattered Core’dinations Cardstock and a Sizzix “Holly, Beaded & Snowflake Garland.” The boughs were further embellished using a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.
For the Wreath card, I die-cut the cutest wreath from a Sizzix Mini Wreath Movers and Shapers Die Set studding the pretty wreath with little balls also created with more pearls.

I love the look of chevron on just about anything so I decided to create this quick and easy card with a chevron theme.
I started with an A2 white card base. I chose a piece of blue cardstock from the A2 Bulk Sheets pkg and ran it through my Big Shot using a Chevron embossing folder. I lightly sanded off the top to show the pattern and then started to layer (5) pieces from the A2 Border Strips pkg. They were a bit long as I turned the card to open vertically, so I just snipped the ends of the strips off. I chose the layered ‘thank you’ from the ‘Thanks 1 Sentiments’ sheets to finish it off …. add the included envelope and it’s good to go !!
If you LOVE tags than you came to the right place. We have them in textured Core, lights, darks, pastels, smooth tags and MORE! Make sure you check them out HERE.
Today we have some gorgeous festive cards from Designer Clare Buswell!
If these don’t get you in the spirit, I am not sure what will!
