Marvy Uchida Punch
1.) Choose two Core Tags
that are the same size. Shown is the medium sized tag. Select a matching piece of Core’dinations cardstock. The great thing about Core’dinations is that the cardstock is a perfect match to the tags- it makes it very easy to mass produce treat holders!
2.) Score the bottoms of the Core tags at 1″.
3.) Fold the tags inward, and adhere bottoms, overlapping each other.
4.) From the matching piece of Core’dinations cardstock, cut 2 (two) 1″ x 2″ strips. Score strips on each end at 1/2″. Fold strips inward.
7.) Using strong adhesive, adhere folded strips inside tags.
8.) Embellish treat holder as desired. Tie top of treat holders together through the grommets in the tags. I used a Marvy Uchida punch that embosses as it punches so all you need to do is sand!
This size treat holder is perfect for Ghirardelli chocolate squares, or Hershey’s Nuggets.

here today to share some Spring cards with you today. Let’s start with a Clean and Simple card. With our pre-embossed cardstock, cards come together very quickly!
The Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions is a great pack of paper to create cards with. Find the pre-printed sentiment on the cardstock sheet, size it to the greeting card size and you can make a quick card without touching any ink.
Sand lightly with your Sand it Gadget and clean your sentiment using the Dust Buddy.
Punch out an embellishment using your Marvy Uchida Clever Lever Silhouette and Embossing punch, SE-E02 Heart Butterfly and add a bit of ribbon. I punched my butterfly from the Spotted Collection, Jillian Vavavoom color.

again here to share with you another Spring card. Spring brings thoughts of new buds and greenery and that is the sign we all look for to indicate the beginning of a wonderful time of year. My CAS card has been embossed using the Couture Creations embossing folderfrom the Fresh & Fun collection, Magical and Sizzix Flourish folder.
Gather some supplies and this CAS card will come together quickly.
I used Core Essentials Pastels Collection pack for this card. Embossed and lightly sanded with my Sand it Gadget. Gently dust off my sanded cardstock with my Dust Buddy and you will reveal the light tones of the inner core.
Stamp your sentiment and image onto a die cut label, adhere with some Helmar’s Zap Dots onto the card to give some dimension to your card. Embellish with some rhinestones and ribbon and your CAS card is ready to go.

Today we have some layouts from Mary Pat Siehl that are all about SNOW! Most of us here in the states are getting a lot of it. Regardless of what the them is that you are scrapping, you can get some great ideas from Mary Pat today. She always has well balanced layouts that really work that Core’dinations Cardstock!
Once again for my layout I started with the a Core’dinations Essentials Dark background. I scored the edges and lightly sanded them to create a border around my layout. Next, I embossed a piece of the White Wash collection using a Couture Creations embossing folder. I sanded it to expose the red core! Next, I cut my title using Core Essentials cardstock. I also used my Marvy punch to create the snowflakes. This punch ROCKS becuase it also gives it a light embossed look as well. Finally I added in some pattern paper along with a homemade Core Essentials tag.

Using the Silhouette with Core’dinations cardstock is just so darn fun because it cuts BEAUTIUFLLY! I was a bit unsure about using the the Core Couture Glitter collection with the Silhouette but it cut like BUTTA! I was so excited. For my layout I cut the snowflakes using the glitter Core. You always need a bit of sparkle on a winter layout. Right???? I then cut my title using the Core Essentials Neutrals. Once I had those items taken care of it was time to play with and form the layout. I started with the Core Essentials Darks and then layered the wonderful Jillibean Soup Core Impressions paper. Next, I took some red from the Core Essentials and ran it through my paper crimper and lightly sanded it. Finally, I added in some pattern paper and arranged my snowflake embellishments and title. So perfect!

Can you belive Christmas is over and in two days it will be 2014? We thought it would be a cool idea to show you some layouts that focus on important days we celebrated in 2013 today. Kim Moreno has some layouts focusing on her kids and some milestones they celebrated this year. ENJOY!
With the rough background in this picture I knew the woodgrain Core Impression paper would be perfect for this layout. I chose the purple and navy to coordinate with the colors from the photo and then purple is their favorite color so I had to add that in there somehow! I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple to focus on this awesome photo of the two of them!
I sanded the background woodgrain paper to bring out the lighter color core of the paper. I then chose border punches that not only cut but had an embossed image as well and sanded them slightly and layered them for a fun look. I used an embossing folder to create the dots on the cut out heart.

EEEEK! I looove this big HUGE star!
This photo of my oldest son at the Texas State 7on7 tournament just pulls at my heart, this was the all seniors photo we took at the end of the tournament. Seriously, how can I have a senior already? He would say he loves this photo because it’s during the summer and he’s allowed to have to super, awesome, manly beard! ha!
I used my trusty Scor Pal (do y’all see a theme to my layouts? they feel naked without a border to me!) to create the lines around the edge of my layout and then sanded the Black Magic to reveal the orange color core. I love this pop of color! I then traced the big star from the orange cardstock and cut and punched the green stars and sanded the edges to give them some character and reveal the color core. I tore the edge of my orange cardstock and the edge of the tag to reveal the colored core as well. Notice printing directly onto the cardstock comes out awesome as well!
