Let’s start today off with festive layout from Tim Holz Seasonal Kraft Core with Designer Suzanna Lee:
For those of you who have followed my blog, you’ve already heard my rave review of the Xyron MegaRunner. You can read all about it here. Having had the chance to use my MegaRunenr A LOT more since that review, I am still a big fan! The cartridges are so easy to just drop in and get scrapping. You don’t have to rely on that one friend who threads it for you, nor do you have to keep re-threading. Big bonuses! The Create-A-Sticker “X” has been sitting on my desk for AGES. I think it’s the one adhesive that still remains from early, early days. It’s the tried and true work horse for letters (like the title on this layout) and smaller embellishements (like the pumpkins, ribbon and burlap). New “wows” that I got to play with in the making of this layout with are the 3/16 inch dots and 1/2 inch double sided tape, each with their own environmentally friendly dispenser. The double sided tape is fantastic when you’re using Core’dinations products in that sometimes the sanded Core, no matter how clean that Dust Buddy gets it, can be a little more resistant to stick and bond to more Core. Not the case with Xyron’s double sided tape! Thanks Xyron for some innovative, earth friendly and reliable adhesives!

And how about a super cute card from Designer Tracy Gruber? Love her play on geometric shapes and of course that CUTE stamp! The create-a-sticker is perfect for the chevron shapes along the side of the card.

So day TWO…hmmmm….how about some cards and a treat bag today?
Designer Clare Buswell worked her Xyron adhesive with a card and treat bag. I just loooooove me some Halloween projects and these are so awesome! You can do a lot with some Core, Authentique and a Xyron Mega runner.
Cover card base with black Core’dinations Color Core cardstock, sand edges with Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Trim patterned paper, round corners, ink edges with Distress Inks and machine stitch border. Adhere to card using Xyron Mega Runner. Cut spider’s web file from Core using Silhouette, attach to card and trim edges. Wrap seam binding around card and tie bow. Die cut labels from Core’dinations Color Core cardstock, stamp sentiment, ink edges and adhere to card using Xyron Mega Runner, to finish.
Today we have some really great layouts from Designer Mary Pat Siehl. She always creates really well-balanced layouts and mixes and matches her Core! For the first layout she creates balance bu using circles and her Silhouette. For the second layout….check out how she works those Core TAGS! You are going to love love it.
One of my favorite things about Core Cardstock is that it cuts beautifully in the Silhouette. For my layout I cut out the background using the white in the Nuetral collection. I then took my 1 inch punch and cut out 81 circles to fill the negative spaces. Core cardstock has so many colors to coordinate with your pattern paper so I punched 63 circles using the Core cardstock (some were embossed and I lighty sanded them and some I left with their solid color) and only 18 with pattern paper. I then matted my photo using my Core Cardstock that I scored and lightly sanded to frame the photo. Finally I scored the 12×12 sheet to frame the circle background.
Core Cardstock is really amazing because you can do so many things with it. I used the Core Essentials Snowflake cardstock and scored it to give it a slight frame. Next I misted it lightly just to add a hint of color. I then also stamped directly on it. The cardstock is awesome for all these “On Trend” techniques. I then made a banner with the different Core Tags. I just love the different sizes and here I embossed all the tags with different embossing folders and then lightly sanded them.
If this was Facebook we would need a LOVE button for this post!
Yes ma’am! But first, don’t forget to come back Monday! We have a great week lined up for you with our friends over at Lawn Fawn Stamps.
And next up we have THE CUTEST project EVER from Designer Heather Ann Kaesgan! Heather found this cute little night light kit at her local craft store (Pat Catan’s) and she altered it with some Core’dinations Cardstock. How ca-UTE is this??? Heather used some Spotted Cardstock in the 6×6 and a David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system Step Three Sentiment.
With the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system, you can easily swap out the sentiment on the front. Use a more neutral cardstock base and you can change it every holiday!
And Heather adds such fabulous detail with the Washi Tape along the top. It’s just the perfect accent for any project.
