Chocolate, right? Well we have the next bext thing today… Chocolate Box cardstock!
Mary Pat here with a fun layout all about corrugating! For a video on how to do this technique with your paper crimper click HERE to view our Technique videos.
And we have Ava Gavloski here with a cute little shaped card for Easter.
Sometimes it’s a refreshing change to make a shaped card. Here I used the Core’dinations Core Essential’s Pastel Collection. Just Emboss and sand the card to show the inner core.
I embellished my card with a die cut from Spellbinders, May Arts Ribbon and ScrapFX chipboard to give the card some layers and texture. The Core’dinations Pastel collection colors core’dinate so well with each other!

Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.
Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.
The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.
Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.
Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:
Twine – The Twinery
Stamps – Stampendous, October Afternoon
Dies – Memory Box, Avery Elle, Die-namics, Lifestyle Crafts, Elizabeth Craft Designs
Ink – Heidi Swapp, VersaFine
Button – American Crafts
Another project I wanted to complete before the baby was born are some pin-on ribbons to give the the new big sister and brother when they come to visit in hospital! Core’dinations cardstock was perfect as it’s sturdy enough for the project, as I *hope* to add these to their scrapbook albums eventually.
First up: for the big sister and of course it had to be pink!
Lots of layers! Some were punched, some were cut with my Cameo electonic cutting machine and the “ribbons” hanging down the bottom were simply handcut.
I used the heavy weight 110lb smooth white cardstock to print the labels and cut them into the banner shape.
And here is big brother’s.I kept to the same design but switched the colors:
You can see the dimension in the bottom layer in the close up photo below. For this I simply cut some strips and folded them before adhering them, alternating the colours.
I snapped this photo on quickly while I was assembling the ribbons, just to give you an idea of the different layers and how they all came together.
Finally, I adhered a pin back (bought from my local craft supply store) to the back of the ribbon so they can wear them proudly!
