DIY Valentine's by Every Day is an Occasion

This project occupied my kids for quite some time and it is a project you don’t have to hover over them. They can do it themselves. My children are 4 and 2 and so I love finding projects like this!

Today we have designer Jill Lebbin with a super fun craft to do with your kiddos that is not only festive but cute! Who doesn’t love teepees?!??!

Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a Kids Core project with you today! My son, daughter and I made Tepees out of white Core! How cute are these?

Core Tepees

To create these tepees, I use Coredinations 12×12 white paper, this silhouette cut, Americana multi-surface paint, bamboo skewers, Elmers Craft Bond glue.

First, I had my kids paint the Core paper and we let it dry. Then, I put the paper through the silhouette cameo and cut it out using the this cut. If you don’t have a Silhouette, you could cut four triangles and add little tabs (or a section to fold over so you can adhere them) to the triangles and glue the sides together. Then we cut bamboo skewers in half so they would fit in the opening. You can embellish these, stamp them or add litte name plates like I did. That’s it!

I fond my inspiration from this blog, that artist that woman so you can check out and she has a downloadable pdf you can use to make these on your own for Thanksgivingif you don’t have a Silhouette. We are going to use these tepees at our Thanksgiving table as place cards! So excited! My son had a blast putting this together!

Have a great day! Smiles, Jill


And crafting with your kids doesn’t have to be downloads. Simple handcut circles like this are all you need to make cute catepillars like this one from Heather Kaesgan. Her son LOVES to craft with her and this is the CUTEST! Right side, wrong side, stamping…anything goes with this!

Today we have some  projects our team created with their kids! Crafting is so much fun especially when you can do it with your kids.

First up we have Designer Heather Ann Kaesgan. She made a some wall art with her son. Her son just LOVED the doggie accents with the Imaginisce Good Dog line. He sanded the canvas using his Sand it Gadget after gluing down some Vintage Cardstock…PS KIDS LOVE OUR SAND IT GADGET! It is easy for them to hold onto and, of course, sanding is so much fun! And when they clean off the paper with the Dust Buddy it’s like magic!

Next we have Jill Lebbin…..

Hello Everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back with another project for you!   Today I have a Hot Air Balloon Card. We gave this card to my sweet cousin, who turned 17 this year. I have to tell you, I cannot take complete credit for this card. My son actually assisted me in making this card. He helped pick out the colors, stamp the background, and use the hot air balloon dies. He is such a big helper!

For this card I used Tim Holtz Kraft  Core, Brights Pack, and Neutral Pack of Core’dinations paper. Like I always say, the brights and white are my go to paper packs. I am very impressed with the way that they take stamps. I even put glossy accents on top of the balloons that I had popped up with foam adhesive. The paper held up very well. It did not tear. I sprayed some Colorshine on the paper too, just to give it extra excitement.

Have a SUPER fun day!!
