Scrapfest Tutorial

Thank you so much to everyone at Scrapfest for an awesome weekend!!!

Today we have a tutorial for you on how to make the project we did over the weekend in case you didn’t get a chance to visit us or you want to recreate it. Don’t forget that Arhivers in the MOA is selling the easels and wood bases in case you want extras.

1.) Cut the base from Graphic 45 Core Impressions.

2.) Using a corner round, punch all four corners and then sand.

3.) Adhere to wood base with some Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

4.) Score lines on the Tim Holtz Dusty Concord cardstock strip from the Distressed Collection. Sand and adhere to Graphic 45 Core Impressions base.

5.) Fold the green Core Essentials cardstock in half and cut two leaves along the folded edge (See step by step photos below). We recommend free handing it!!!!

Now it is time to make the flower. We like to call them Core’Sages here 😉

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created a tutorial here for the flowers for your reference as well. (Please note the flowers shown here were created from a different color Core Essentials and Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper to create the veins in the leaf).

Again, please note... For these photos Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper. You do NOT need

it for this project. Just sand your leaf along the fold for the vein. This just gives it added texture. You could always score some of your own veins, too!

Now, clip your favorite photo or ink the edges of the frame and you have the perfect project!

Again many many many many thanks to all the amazing consumers we met and saw again this weekend.

As promised here are some shots from this weekend.

First up…THE BOOTH.

Here we are getting ready for the big opening on Friday Morning!

And here is the Make-N-Take we did. There were four steps. Steps one and two were stamping, sanding and tearing. You know how much we love to do that here at Core’dinations!!!

The third step was scoring and the fourth step was the ribbon. A HUGE thanks to Glue Arts for sending us their awesome NEW extreme Glue Glider Pro. It was a HUGE hit.

Each customer walked away this awesome, tri-fold card that they could use as a gift card holder.

AND don’t forget… you have all day to today to comment here to win some Goodies from us. We teamed up with myStamp BOX for a fun blog swap. We had such a blast!!!

One more thing before we head out for the weekend…we are having a Stacy Julian week next week!!! We will be showing off some creations from the team and Stacy with our new Core Impression pack that Stacy designed just for us.
