We have an awesome tutorial for you today from Design Team Member April Derrick.
Let’s get started!
Step 1 - To create the background for my layout, I started by gathering the following supplies: Ranger Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Broken China, two Ranger Foam Applicator Tools, Core’dinations Sand it Gadget , and of course a beautiful sheet of Core’dinations Core Impression Cardstock. The particular sheet I used was from the Jenni Bowlin Studio Collection: Vintage Brights!
Step 2 – I started by applying some of the Weathered Wood Distress Ink along the bottom of the cardstock.
Step 3 - Next I added a layer of Broken China Distress Ink and I made sure to blend the two colors together where they meet so it would having a flowing effect.
Step 4 - I continued to apply the Broken China distress ink all the way up to the top of the cardstock, however I didn’t apply as much towards the top because I wanted to make sure that some of the whitewash coat and stunning red core would show through! This picture shows a close up of how the colors blended beautifully.
Step 5 – I grabbed my Core’dinations Sand it Gadget and started distressing away! I sanded various areas of the cardstock making sure to leave a few un-sanded patches to add visual interest!
Step 6 – I also sanded along the edges of the cardstock to help create a beautiful red border. You can see what my completed layout background looked like before I began adding embellishments.
Step 7 - I completed the layout by adding pictures I had created in a free online photo editor, and various patterned papers & embellishments!

Just wanted to share another Kraft-Core Project with you today from Design Team Coordinator
Make sure you check out that cute little owl Sarah made out of the Kraft-Core! This cardstock is so versatile.
You are going to love it! These are brand new colors from Tim Holtz and Core’dinations, too!
Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Step 1: Cut a 4” x 12” piece of Core’dinations cardstock. Using the back side of your cardstock; score at 4.5”, 6.5” and 11”.
Step 2: Using your scoring tool, make a grid line pattern on the 4” x 4.5” section.
Step 3: Fold along 4.5”, 6.5” and 11” scored lines. Turn cardstock over and sand with your Sand It Gadet.
Step 4: Cut a window into the grid section using your Nestabilities, Coluzzle or other cutting tool. The window should be slightly closer to the fold line.
Step 5: If desired, add an alternate piece of 2” x 4” cardstock on the 1” end flap. This is what your treat bag should look like so far:
Step 6: Line up cardstock and punch holes through the 4” x 4.5” grid section and 2” flap. Embellish. I used my Cricut to cut out tiny egg shapes, and ran them through my Xyron sticker maker.
Step 7: Place treats in a small plastic or cellophane bag. Staple on to the inside of the 4” x 6.5” section.
Step 8: Fold treat bag together and place the flap over top. Run a cute ribbon through and you’re finished!
