Hi all! Tami Mayberry here with you today with another quick and easy project made possible by Core’dinations. For this project I have created a quick and easy “MOM” tag using Core Tags, pre-made tags by Core’dinations.
“MOM” tag supplies
- Core’dinations Core Tags: Large White, Pastel Assorted
- Core’dinations Gemstones Collection amethyst cardstock
- Core’dinations Core Essentials Pastels Collection cardstock (purple)
- 3 light purple self-adhesive rhinestones
- White self-adhesive pearl
- May Arts ribbon: light purple, light purple gingham
- Sizzix dies: Mixed Media (#660220), Block Talk Capital (#658563), Borders & Hydrangeas (#657721 )
- Sizzix Big Shot die-cutting machine
- Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: adhesive foam squares, adhesive dots
Step 1: Remove metal eyelet from light purple tag. *Tip: Removing the eyelet from the bottom tag allows easy layering without extra bulk.
Step 2: Die-cut Mixed Media shape from center of white tag; attach on top of purple tag using foam squares.
Step 3: Die-cut “MOM” from Gemstones cardstock; attach to tag using foam squares. Attach rhinestones along right edge.
Step 4: Wrap tag with ribbon as shown; tie in a knot.
Step 5: Die-cut three flower layers from pastel purple cardstock; shape as desired.
Step 5: Layer die-cut flowers using foam squares. Attach pearl to center; attach to tag.
Step 6: Tie ribbon through top of tag.
And there you have it!
Note: This tag can easily be changed to a Father’s Day tag by changing the colors and adding a more masculine element in place of the flower!
One of the frustrations of creating DIY crafted home décor is being limited by the size of paper offered. This adhesive cardstock measures a generous 12×24 inches, is self-adhesive, and non-shed glitter. It can be run through any electronic cutting machine on the vinyl setting. This project shows how nice it is to be able to utilize the larger size on a home décor project that measures 18″ and would normally need to be covered with two pieces of 12×12 craft paper. Additionally, since this cardstock is self-adhesive, no messy glues were required!
XL Tag Photo Display Supplies List:
- Core’dinations Self-Adhesive 12×24″ Glitter Cardstock (Teal) (1 sheet )
- Core’dinations Self-Adhesive 12×24″ Glitter Cardstock (Silver)(1 4″x4″ piece )
- Darice Silver Glitter Chipboard Letters (S,M,I,L,E)
- Darice XL (18″) Wooden Tag
- Wooden Clothespins (2 )
- Core’dinations Sand it-Gadget
- Standard Hole Punch
- 1″ Circle Craft Punch
- Craft Knife
- 2 4×6 vertically oriented photos
- 2 green/white gingham ribbon bows
- 1 large white flower
- 2 small white flowers
- 2 green leaves
Step One: Untie the section of jute from the wooden tag, set aside for later use. Sand any rough edges. Turn the adhesive cardstock over to the back side and trace the outline of the XL tag on cardstock backing using a pencil.
Cut the tag shape out using the pencil markings. Remove adhesive backing. Apply the adhesive cardstock over the top of the wooden tag- take care to smooth out any bubbles. Using a craft knife, trim any excess cardstock from sides and hole of the wooden tag.
Step Two: Using silver glitter adhesive cardstock piece, make a standard hole punch, leaving approximately 1″ from the bottom of the cardstock piece.
Using a 1″ craft punch, position the punch over the standard hole punch, and center the craft punch. This will create a circle with a perfect centered hole- for the “grommet” on the wooden tag.
Peel adhesive backing off of the cardstock “grommet” and apply to tag, over the hole. Replace jute piece stringing it through the hole.
Step Three: Select letters to spell out “SMILE” or other chosen word. Adhere letters to end of the wooden tag.
Step Four: Using silver glitter adhesive cardstock piece, cut two sections of cardstock to fit the tops of the wooden clothespins. Peel back adhesive and apply to clothespins. Adhere clothespins to wooden tag. Insert photos into clothespins.
I added some pretty paper flowers to the fill some space on the left side of my tag.
Designer note: It would be simple to change the orientation of this XL Wooden Tag. Follow all steps, turn the tag vertically, and adhere 1 wooden clothespin to the top center of the tag. This would be a perfect size for a 5×7, vertically oriented photo.

Count Your Blessings Layout by Suzanna Lee
Do you have those family dinner table picture that we all take at Thanksgiving, and once you finally seen them think, “ugh! how am I going to scrap that?”. Well fret no more! I have the solution for you. First, convert your picture to black and white. The conversion will soften the clash between Auntie Rose’s purple hair and Grandpa Jack’s hot pink tie and allow you to use the colors of your choice in your layout, just as I did here!
Count Your Blessings Layout Supplies:
- Core’dinations Core Impressions, Basic Grey Ornate
- Core’dinations Core Impressions, Jenni Bowlin Studio, Brown and Cream
- Core’dinations Tim Holtz, Kraft Core, Shattered
- Core’dinations Tim Holtz, Kraft Core, Adirondack
- Core’dinations Sand It Gadget
- Core’dinations Dust Buddy
- Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Ink
- Petaloo Dahlias, Red/Fuschias
- Petaloo Mini Daisies, Red, Fuchias
- Xyron Adhesive Dots
- Xyron Mega Runner
Step 1:To create both bases of your layout, you will need your trusty Core’dinations steeds; your Sand It Gadget and your Dust Buddy. Sand the edges of the the Basic Grey Core Impressions and wipe the dust with your Dust Buddy to reveal the colored core. If you would like a bit more definition to the border of the page, as I did, then use some Distress ink around the edges. Fussy cut out the Jenni Bowlin Square Label paper and similarly, sand and dust it.
Step 2: Layer a long banner cut from Tim Holtz Shattered cardstock that you sanded and rubbed with some Distress Paint with your picture, Petaloo flowers and some die cut leaves. The PERFECT adhesive to stick Petaloo flowers down with is Xyron’s adhesive dots! They come in two sizes, 3/16 inch which is perfect for the little daises I used on the bottom, right hand corner of my page and the larger, 3/8 inch dots for the larger Petaloo flowers!
Step 3: Whatever was not put together with Adhesive Dots, was put everything together with my Xyron MegaRunner! I just love the ability to drop in the cartridge and set to work. No fuss running tape here, there and everywhere or having it snap and need to be re-thread mid-project! Just remove the spent cartridge and pop in a new one and you are good to go!
April is all about things blooming and new life so it is a perfect time to share this beautiful layout from Design Team Memmber Lydia Jackson.
