Shaunte Wadley has some cute custom holiday earrings with Glittersilk and some Mod Podge, for us today!
Here is the step-out tutorial:
Using a craft punch, die-cut or electronic cutting machine- cut four small shamrock shapes. Two of the shamrocks should be cut in the opposite directions so the four shapes can be sandwiched together front to back.
Using your Xyron adhesive, adhere the shapes together.
Using a small hole punch, or a needle, create a hole where you would like the shamrock to hang.
Lay the (double sided) shamrock flat, and apply Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to entire surface of shamrock. Allow to dry fully.
Flip shamrocks over, and apply Dimensional Magic to entire surface of reverse side.
Using a needle, go through holes again (to clear out Dimensional Magic) , and insert a small jump ring into hole. Attach earring hook to jump ring.
Finished earrings! (Attached to David Tutera Step mini card- cute gift giving idea!
The DImensional Magic gives the finished earring stability and the look of enamel. They are very sturdy, and do not look like paper at all .A great way to make cute seasonal earrings for every holiday for pennies.

That day of sweet notes and sweet treats is around the corner and today I have a layout to share with you showcasing the Valentine’s paper of the Seasonal Impressions collection. I love selectively sanding the words that work with and support my layout. It’s almost like having a piece of patterned paper for a background.
Check out how cool the dots look along the letters:

Core’dination’s has so many wonderful collections to choose from it makes creating easy! I love this Pink Paisley Impression’s collection. I picked pink for my page and sanded it with my Sand it Gadget so that the embossing would stand out more. Then I used my Dust Buddy to collect the extra dust from the sanding. Next I chose a piece of the Spotted Jillian collection – attached it with my Xyron mega runner and stitched on it. I added some of the pastel Core’dination’s tags and layered it. I added a David Tutera tag on which I stamped. Then using some of the Glitter Silk collection I punched out some snowflakes and topped them with pearls and pom poms from Queen & Co. I created a little film strip along the bottom of my photos of more of the photos from the day.

And Whitewash Cardstock is the PERFECT accent for all those snow photos!
I love the White Wash Collection. There’s just so many fun things to do with it. For this page I started out scoring around the page. Then I opened up a Cuttlebug Embossing folder of snowflakes and laid it open behind my cardstock and sanded over it. It didn’t come out in sharp detail but gave the background a different look. Then I also just sanded with my Sand It Gadget around the entire outside edge of the page. Once I finished I dusted it all off with my Dust Buddy and added some stenciling and stamping. I added some Darice Washi tape along the top and bottom of my page and then added my papers, tags and photo. I wrapped the top photo layer with some Queen & Co. twine (love this stuff). I wanted some sparkly snowflakes so I took a sheet of the David Tutura Step two Edge Silver Metalic pack and punched out my snowflakes. Then I just added some rhinestones from Queen & Co.

Wishing someone a Happy New Year is such a great way to kick off the year! Positive thoughts for a positive start to the new year!
Kate here today to share two bright and happy New Year’s cards I made using Core’dination Cardstock.
Kicking it off with a BRIGHT card. The 4.5″ x 6″ card base and all brightly colored layers were made from the Core Essentials Bright Collection. I embossed the yellow layer with a chevron embossing folder by Darice. While embossing, I placed a cardstock shim on top of the plate sandwich. When I ran this through my Big Shot, the embossing cut through the paper just where the shim was placed.

Die-namics Alpha Dies
This picture perfect card whipped up in no time at all! The 4.5″ x 6″ card base is Core’dinations Tulip Jillian Dot. I sanded the little dots with my Sand It Gadget. The sentiment is printed on a scrap piece of Core’dinations Cardstock (pretty sure it is in the Neutral Collection). Once printed, I tore the paper and added a bit of Chalking Ink to match the Tulip colored base.
