Fall is my very favorite time of year. One of my favorite things to do is go see all the beautiful fall colors in the mountains. I thought it would be fun to bring the fall colors inside, so I put this fun Fall Centerpiece together. Today I’m going to teach you how to make it.
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Core’dinations Cardstock (No. 4, 6, 8, & 13)
- 6 x 6 Kraft Cardstock
- Sand It Gadget
- Unfinished Wood Tray (Medium Size)
- Two Bamboo Skewers
- Jute Twine (about 18″)
- Foam Core Board (two layers trimmed to fit inside box)
- Paint Brush
- Hole Punch
- Adhesive (I used a glue stick)
- Digital Die Cutting Machine
Step 2: Using the Sand It Gadget, distress the leaves.
Step 3: Use the hole punch and punch a hole in the top of the leaves. Glue your letters to the leaves.
Step 4: Loop your Jute Twine.
Step 5: Slide the hole on the leaves over the loop of twine. Space leaves as needed.
Step 6: Place foam core board in bottom of wood tray. Poke skewers into foam core board on both sides of tray.
Step 7: Tie jute twine to skewers. Trim any extra twine with the scissors.
Step 8: Paint the Unfinished Wood Tray and let it dry.
Step 9: Using two sheets of 6×6 Kraft Cardstock, trim them down to the width of the tray. Place in tray, punch holes with skewers to line up with holes in the foam core board underneath.
Step 10: Cut 3D leaves out of the Kraft-Core Core’dinations Cardstock. I did this using a digital die cutting machine also.
Step 11: Use the Sand It Gadget to sand the leaves.
Step 12: Slide leaves together and place in wood tray.
Now your centerpiece is all finished!
All you need to do now, is find the perfect place to put it.
EEEEEK! I love Halloween so much I can’t stand it! So over the next few weeks we will be showcasing some Halloween projects for you. First up we have Ava Gavloski working her Core magic Halloween style

Tis the season upon us and what better way to celebrate and encourage the spirit of Halloween with some Halloween pictures which showcase Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic cardstock collection. This layout came together so easy with the Nostalgic cardstock collection.
The colors are so festive. Sanding this kraft core give so much texture to the layout.
I have made a second page to complement the layout with a large pocket with tag’s, so that additional photo’s can be included.
I added a bit of coloured raffia and some Authentique pattern papers to bring out some color from the photo and all the elements showcase the happiness of the photo so well.

How about a super fun layout from Designer Suzanna Lee???
This layout was all about technique for me. I hand cut my own solid stamp, matching the outer edge of the strawberry. I colored the stamp with my Gelatos, misted it then printed the image onto a Core’dinations tag. I repeated this several times. I then stamped over that image with the actual Lawn Fawn stamp from Summertime Charm using black ink. Then I used the coordinating die to cut a few strawberries out. I love the little ants crawling around for those juicy strawberries!

How about a layout?
What a great day…the sun is shining…only a few more days until Friday…what more can we ask for? WELL, Designer Debbie Standard has some layouts for you today.
This layout brought a smile to my face today. First up the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain background…and the colors…yellow…gray…and that pop of red are just awesome! Oh and you cannot forget about the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions. Debbie hand cut those details for her title and subtitles.
And how cute is this??? Debbie was inspired by all the sunburst layouts she has been seeing on Pinterest. SPEAKING of Pinterest…make sure you follow us on our page HERE! What a great way to use up those scraps of Core you have in your bin. AND all those lush embossed (and sanded of course!) designs are gorgeous, gorgeous!
Debbie cut, embossed and sanded each section and then created the sunburst effect along the top. Then she added the Stacy Julian Core Impressions pre-embossed words along the side. Then she added some clouds that she die cut using the Whitewash collection which makes really great clouds by the way because you can lightly sand them and bring out the blue tones.
