Hi there! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion (http://everydayisanoccasion.com/) here to share a very colorful layout with you today! I normally do not make layouts as busy as this, but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and go for it!
Colorful Core Layout
To create this layout, the first thing I did was take out my trusty 110lb 12×12 White Core. My favorite cardstock on the planet earth by the way! I had my son and daughter paint it with water colors they got with a coloring book. I wanted a random background and since they are always asking to paint, I thought this was the perfect opportunity. After the paper was dry, I trimmed 1/2 in. off each side and adhered it to the light blue Gemstones Core.
Then using Black Magic Core I cut out this shape with my Silhouette. How amazing is the Black Magic Core? After I cut out the shape the beautiful purpley color showed through on the edges as if I had inked the edges all the way around. Nope, I didn’t, it’s just the beautiful Black Magic core showing through! Then using my Sand It tool I sanded away on the hearts because I wanted the purple to show through. I chose the hearts to sand because I wanted to make a statement with them. You know, like when you were a kid and would make a heart as the dot for an “i” and then color it in. Did you do that? Maybe that was just me, but sanding those hearts reminded me of that. Seriously though, that is the great thing about the Black Magic Core, certain shapes can stand out simply by sanding them.
On this layout, I loved the fact that the core I used 6×6 Glitter Core to create the mini book on the album. I simply cut the pages down to 4×4 in. and stapled them together on the left hand side. I then took some We R Memory Keepers Sew easy twine and wrapped it around the book so you couldn’t see the staples. I also stapled the book to the layout before I added the picture on the last page. Once I added the picture on the last, you couldn’t see the staples anymore. I simply took a glitter clothespin I got from Michaels and used it to close the book. Below are the pages inside of the mini album. I used some Heidi Swapp Hello Today from Michaels to embellish the pages. I love using Core and Heidi Swapp products. They go perfectly together.
Below are some close ups of how nicely the Silhouette cut through the Black Magic Core and some Heidi Swapp embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a SUPER fun day!
Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a St. Patrick’s Day Craft with you. Seriously, how much fun is St. Patrick’s Day? We love it here in Notre Dame country! Today I have a cute little kids treat and then I decided to make a grown up version of it too! There are 2 free printables for you, so just click on the links and download!
To create these rainbow seeds, I used a pail from Darice and filled it with Skittles. Then I used this cut from the Silhouette store to cut out a shamrock on Spotted Core. If you do not have a Silhouette fear not, here is a template for you to cut some out. Then I sanded the core with my Sand-It tool. I just love how it makes the spots pop just by sanding it!
Then I used some fun fur to tie around the handle and this free printable on my blog. To print the free printable, I used Core’dinations 8 1/2×11 white 110 lb cardstock. My printer loves it!! To create the flourish cut around the leprechaun tag, I used this Flourish Slim punch from Hobby Lobby. That’s it pretty easy peasy.
St. Patrick’s Day Treat
Here is another St. Patrick’s Day treat idea that is for a different age range.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by and checking out my projects!
I hope that you are able to use the free printable with some 110 lb white core!
And we have a layout from Jennifer Edwardson! See we are LUCKY!!! Here is a little bit about this layout from Jennifer….
I found this lucky clover placemat cut file at the Silhouette online store and thought it would super fun on a 12 x 12″ layout.

Nothing sets the stage for a holiday like a banner! Core’dinations has the PERFECT color for you for all your St Patrick’s Day needs…it’s Shamrock Green!
Mary Pat Siehl created this banner just for us today…ENJOY!
I know every day I feel lucky to have Core’dinations as a part of my life and when I saw this layout from Kate Nolan-Denham, I couldnt wait to share!
When we are lucky enough to have a good friend that will stand by us through thick and thin, we should celebrate it! What better time of year to celebrate how lucky we are than St. Patrick’s Day?
My layout today is inspired by the lucky theme of St. Patrick’s Day and the colors we associate with this day, too. It is chock-full of glittery greens, golds and blacks found in Core’dinations Gemstone, Glitter Silk, and Core Couture Glitter Collections. I bet you didn’t even realize there were so many fantastic glittery collections by Core’dinations!
I embossed the black Glitter Silk Cardstock and then lightly sanded it just so the embossing would pop. The die cut doilies are also lightly sanded to show off the core.
The titlework was also cut out of the Glitter Silk Collection. When using your Silhouette to cut the Glitter Silk, I recommend reversing your image and cutting it Glitter Silk side down.
Wishing you much luck today! ~Kate
And how about another fabulous layout from Suzanna Lee?!?!?!
