Happy Halloween!

With only a few days left to Halloween we thought we would share some very treats for you!

And when we say treats, we of course mean festive Halloween tags :) Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post for more of these fun and festive Halloween inspired tags. One for each day of the month of October.

Glitter Silk, Black Magic, Core Tags…you name it Designer Leica Forrest used it for her Halloween Daily Fun box of tags. I don’t know about you but this is my favorite time of year!

So for the last few days we have been sharing these fun tags Leica created for us.  This is a great idea for any month of the year…you could make them next month and pick something to be thankful every day or even December for fun things you and your family can do to celebrate Christmas.

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have the perfect tags.Don’t forget the sanding and embossing!

Stamping with Versamark looks GREAT on Black Magic Cardstock. Add a little bit of sanding on the edges and you are good to go!

Check out the gorgeous tags (on the right) using the Core Amour! Love this line for Halloween, too!  Leica stamped right on hers and used a bunch of fabulous Stampendous Glitter! Sky is the limit with Core.

Before we get started, don’t forget to sign up for our NEW Hard Core Crafter program! Details are here.

You will get access to tons of giveaways….EXCLUSIVE videos….and it is FREE!!!!

I know we normally do Tutorials on Tuesday but we got a little behind this week with our HCC program and posts so today we have a fun tutorial for you. I wanted to make sure I shared this before Valentine’s Day in case anyone wanted to use it as inspiration.

Our team members have been working with their very own kids to bring you Kids Crafts with Core!

A new series of quick and easy projects designed especially for you to be able to do with your very own family.


Design Team Member Char Dobson created these super cute Valentine’s Day cards with her (uber talented) nine-year old daughter!

Char’s daughter planned the entire pattern, colors, embossing folder….everything! on this project by herself. She even found the heart shape on her own while looking through Cricut cartridge booklets. AND they put this together in less than thirty minutes.

Yes, thirty minutes!

Char’s daughter has loved crafts since she was very young but has only been scrapbooking and cardmaking with her for a year or two. Amazing!

READY?

Step 1 & 2: Cut out four large hearts in a dark colour. We used the Cricut + Desiner’s Calendar Cartridge for this project:
Step 3: Cut out four slighter smaller hearts in a lighter contrasting colour.
Step 3: Cut out four slighter smaller hearts in a lighter contrasting colour.
Step 4: Cut out letters to form the word LOVE. You could also use Thickers or alpha stickers.
Step 5: Emboss the small hearts using your favourite Valentine’s themed embossing folder. We chose Without a Lock by Couture Creations.
Step 6: Sand.
Tip: Sand in a tray like this for easy clean up!
Step 7: Adhere small hearts to large heart background.
Step 8: Adhere letters.
Step 9: Embellish if desired. We added some candy-heart style stickers from Recollections.
Step 10: Adhere finished hearts to a length of ribbon. Tie a loop at the top.
Step 11: Your finished project….
