First up we have a gingerbread card from Designer Vivina Keh. Keep reading because this isn’t the gingerbread you were thinking of
Vivian Keh here today to share with you a card which uses a technique I came up with awhile back which I call the “Gingerbread” technique. Perhaps a Hard Core video tutorial is in store for you sharing this really easy technique! In conjunction with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock that has been sanded, the patterns really pop off your papercrafted projects!
LOOK at that GORGEOUS Marvy Uchida punch!

Today we have some projects our team created with their kids! Crafting is so much fun especially when you can do it with your kids.
First up we have Designer Heather Ann Kaesgan. She made a some wall art with her son. Her son just LOVED the doggie accents with the Imaginisce Good Dog line. He sanded the canvas using his Sand it Gadget after gluing down some Vintage Cardstock…PS KIDS LOVE OUR SAND IT GADGET! It is easy for them to hold onto and, of course, sanding is so much fun! And when they clean off the paper with the Dust Buddy it’s like magic!
Next we have Jill Lebbin…..
Hello Everyone! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion back with another project for you! Today I have a Hot Air Balloon Card. We gave this card to my sweet cousin, who turned 17 this year. I have to tell you, I cannot take complete credit for this card. My son actually assisted me in making this card. He helped pick out the colors, stamp the background, and use the hot air balloon dies. He is such a big helper!
Hot Air Balloon Birthday Card
For this card I used Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Brights Pack, and Neutral Pack of Core’dinations paper. Like I always say, the brights and white are my go to paper packs. I am very impressed with the way that they take stamps. I even put glossy accents on top of the balloons that I had popped up with foam adhesive. The paper held up very well. It did not tear. I sprayed some Colorshine on the paper too, just to give it extra excitement.
Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my..I mean..my son’s and my hot air balloon card!
Have a SUPER fun day!!

Today we have a super “krafty” layout from designer Kate Nolan-Denham.
I am having a great love of all things Kraft lately and I find myself reaching for the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core all the time . The sweet layout of my grandson I am sharing today is chock-full of this line!
I sanded the background cardstock, Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.10, using my Sand it Gadget to give it a bit of an aged look. To create the rulered mat, I embossed a piece of Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.6, with Darice 12″ ruler embossing folders. After fussy cutting out each ruler, I inked them with Distress Ink and added them to a 9″x 8″ mat of Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No. 23.
The title work is die cut from Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection No.21 and distressed a bit with the Sandit Gadget. Of course, I always use the Dust Buddy everytime I sand. The photo mat and die punched hearts are made from scraps of Core’dinations papers I had in my stash. Got to love stash!

And ..the GREAT thing about Kraft Core is you can use a little or a lot! Check out Clare Buswell’s card here using all kinds of Core’dinations Cardstock including a paper ruffle flower from Kraft Core. You can mix & match Core beautifully, don’t you think? Add some of the Tim Holtz Ranger Distress collection, too!
Check out more of Clare’s paper ruffles HERE. Gorgeous!
And just love love how she stamped on the Whitewash Cardstock.
