We are back on track with Tutorial Tuesday!
Remember this cutie we posted on our Facebook page during CHA?
Here he is at an angle so you can get the idea of all the layers. He’s a beauty!
WELL, the most awesome Designer Lydia Jackson who created this gorgeous owl using our Spotted Cardstock recreated a pattern JUST for you!  How cool is that?  PLEASE give her a HUGE Hard Core Thank you!
To create this owl that you will need are 3 colors of Core’dinations Spotted cardstock, black cardstock and a little yellow cardstock for the eyes, 2 black buttons and 3 types of Queen & Co washi tape. Tools: scissors, pinking shears, a crimper, Sand it Gadget and a Dust Buddy, Zap Dots and a Glue Arts tape runner.
First:
1. Print the owl part images on 8.5 x 11 paper and then use them as a template to cut matching color cardstock. See below.
Next:
2. Sand all elements and wipe off with a Dust buddy
3. Fold and stick  Queen& Co. washi tape around the lower portion of the eyes. I trimmed the ends of the washi tape with pinking shears, but most any decorative edge scissors will work.
4. Assemble the head with eyes and then beak and then using pop dots, pop up wings and and pop up head I used a thin pop dot on the wings and a thick dot on the head.
5. Create his chest feathers using this technique { here is this link http://lidibids-scrapnotions.blogspot.ca/2010/07/quick-leaf-tutorial.html }
6. And lastly cut or punch two hearts for feet.
Here are your print outs:
PLEASE NOTE: you may need to resize this print out on your own computer. Lydia’s orginal owl is 8″ but you can resize it to any size you wish. Just right click on the image, and click save in order to save it to your computer. We kept them sized as big as we could to fit on the blog (you will notice that they are larger then the screen) in order for you to be able to size them accordingly on your computer at the highest resolution.

If you create one of these little fella’s, we would love to see it on our Facebook page, so please pop over and share it with us!!!
a HUGE thanks to Lydia!

We are so thankful here at Core’dinations for so many reasons.

We had such an awesome week last week with Glue Arts!

Between the Glue ARts blog and the wonderful projects here at the Core blog you had to come away with some inspiration. You must have GREAT cardstock AND awesome adhesive for your crafting projects. If you  missed last week, don’t worry. Go to our main site, www.coredinations.com and then click on “Scrapbook Projects” and then you will see “2,4,6,8 Core’dinate”. There you will see all of our preferred partners, including Glue Arts, and the projects that we have created.

Today  our Design Team Member Char Dobson created this layout in celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving using Core’dinations and, of course… GLUE ARTS. We just couldn’t stop! Char also used some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions and Black Magic.

There are so many great details on this layout and so many things to be thankful for.

Today we have a Thanksgiving Day wreath from Designer Ellen Sosnoski.

There are only a few easy steps for this easy project. First,  wrap burlap (from MME) around a wooden base. I am using an old “O”  that I bought to alter for my son’s room. The intention was for us to do it together but he didn’t find it as exciting as I did so we are using it for a Fall Wreath today with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core and Sizzix dies.

You may need to play with it a bit to make sure the end is on the back. Use your Glue Arts Square Adhesives to attach. They worked perfectly!

I used about the Adhesive Squares to attached the leaves…

I just love this piece of Kraft-Core. It is so soft and subtle and it just looked perfect on the spool. Again, use an adhesive Glue Square here….

And a close up of the leaves. They were embossed, then spritzed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and then sanded. To get them to stand up, I used the 3D UCut it squares.

We cannot wait to see what you create with Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock and Glue Arts!

Thank you Thank you for  a fantastic week. Please make sure you stop over at Glue Arts and give them a big shout out.

Come back Monday for some Canadian Thanksgiving ideas and some winners!
