Hello again, fellow Core lovers! It’s Gini, and today I have an upcycling project to share with you, using some of my favorite products. With a little help from Core’dinations, Xyron and Petaloo, I was able to transform a lowly Pringles Chip container into a dispenser for cosmetic cotton rounds.
A Thing of Beauty Supply List:
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection
- Glitter Silk Cardstock
- Core Essentials Cardstock Neutrals
- Core’dinations Vellum Quotes & Titles – Inspirational Motivations
- Dusty Buddy
- Xyron 9″ Creative Station – Permanent Adhesive
- Xyron Tape Runner
- Petaloo Darjeeling Collection: Darjg Mix Mini Teasn; Mini Daisies with Leaves
- Petaloo Fancy Trims Black
- Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Three; Grand Caliber Machine
- Zva Creative Gem Flourish CR-06CA-104
- Graphic 45 Metal Buttons
- Stampendous Stamp
- Ranger Gold Embossing Powder
- Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts Delicata Ink- Golden Glitz; Sheer Shimmer Spritz- Gold; VersaMark Watermark Ink
- Heat Tool
- Pringles Chip Canister
Step 1. Measure around your container and cut paper to fit.
Step 2. Draw a template for your opening on scrap cardstock. Cut in the center of the paper as well as the canister.
Step 3. Stamp decorative border at the top and bottom of the paper with watermark ink. Heat emboss with gold powder. Tip: Sometimes metallic embossing powders leave a residue. Use the Dust Buddy after embossing to remove this powder.
Step 4. Run the paper through the Creative Station machine to apply adhesive. Carefully adhere to the canister, lining up the openings.
Step 5. Ink the back of the vellum quote with metallic gold. Die cut a frame using the Glitter Silk cardstock.
Step 6. Use the small tape runner to apply adhesive to the back of the frame. Center quote and trim the excess.
Step 7. Cut a circle to match the top of the canister. Add trim around the top and bottom of the canister and lid to hide the raw edges.
Step 8. Spritz the flowers with gold and let dry and add the embellishments to the canister to finish as shown.
So remember, look at your empty containers with a creative eye, before you take out your trash! See you soon.

There is no place better than the beach! And not just during the summer, during those non-summer months, when it’s a little rougher to get to the beach due to the lack of time and return to regular routines. Here is a great way to remind yourself of just how great the beach is and what’s around the corner!
Die – EllenTina Cutting Dies/Tessler Crafts
Cut Files – Kolette Hall Studios (Design ID #43142 and #61944), Hero Arts (Design ID #40428)
Buy yourself a lovely weathered frame and dress it up with some Core’dinations cardstock cut with beachy dies and cut files!
The Kraft Core Shattered collection adds that perfect weathered feel to a beach themed project. So too does sanding add a sand worn effect.
Tucking things between the background and the frame adds a 3D dimension and some added depth to your project. Note how the texture of the Core’dinations cardstock really makes this sea star that much more realistic!

Supplies: Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered, Glitter Silk, David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system sentiment, liquid pearls, sequins, mini-clothes pins, twine, scoring tool and star punch

Hi everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a kids craft with you today!!! I made this chapstick card. This “kids” craft is great because it can be made by little kids for their teachers or by teenagers for friends! I think it is a great little something for anyone actually!!
To create this card I used Core’dinations’ Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection, 110 lb white coredinations paper, this silhoutte cut, and some Hemptique cord.
Thanks! Have a Great day!!! Smiles, Jill
And next up we have a card from Designer Clare Buswell using more of that Gorgeous Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered cardstock! Clare really adds some great distressing details with inks and stamps. This cardstock is so great because you can use it “as is” or add your own touches to it!
