Hello, Ava here  to share a cute way to dress up a bracelet for the summer using the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions collection to celebrate the month of July.

Supplies:
Ranger, Crackle Accents medium
Tombow Adhesive
Step # 1  Using your Sand It Gadget, sand a strip of the border star’s along the 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock.  Sand a few star’s within the cardstock sheet for the cuffs as well.
Core Tip:  If you do not have any resin or are shy about trying it, try to get the look of aged resin pebbles by using Rangers Crackle Accents Medium. There are plenty of products out there you can try and get a similar look. The resin just stands up better to the elements especially for jewelry.

Step # 2 Apply a generous amount of crackle medium to the strip of cardstock and let dry.
Step # 3  Trim your sta’s from the Core’dinations Cardstock to fit each bracelet bezel and adhere.
Now, that is fun bracelet to wear for the summer!

Hi there! Suzanna here with a seasonal Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions layout to share with you using one of the individual embossed papers focusing on the American No. 17 sheet. It’s perfect for the 4th of July.

Supplies:

Tim Holtz – Kraft Core – Seasonal Impressions

Tim Holtz – Kraft Core – Shattered

Tim Holtz – Kraft Core – Nostalgic

Sand It Gadget

Bust Buddy

Embossing Folder – Tim Holtz

 I selectively sanded the word  that corresponded with my theme. I also happen to have the Tim Holtz embossing folder that matches this pre-embossed cardstock and was able to fussy cut the 4 in a slightly bigger size. It worked out perfectly!

This entire layout was created using all Kraft Core products! I love the vintage feel it gives to the layout.

Another fun technique that is unique to Core’dinations cardstock is the ability to run it through your label maker for some fun banners. By sanding the raised print, like I did on the little red flag to reveal the colored core underneath, you can really see the letters!

Hello! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a double sided magnetic board with you today. I love making these magnetic boards because they are super fun to hold pictures I print from Instagram.

Double Sided Magnetic Board

This summer I was fortunate enough to go to CHA and while I was there a must-do on my list was meet Heidi Swapp. To showcase my  holiday photos this season I made a magnetic board. It’s super easy and quite festive.

Double Sided Magnetic Board

 

To create this magnetic board I used Heidi’s Believe 12×12 paper pack and Core’dinations Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions.

 

Double Sided Magnetic Board 2

 

The 4 small magnets are made using Heidi Swapp’s 12 x12 Believe paper pack and the Epiphany Crafts 25 Round tool. The bow is actually a magnet , too! You can get little magnets at your local craft store and you can get full sheets, too, so you can cut them any size you want. The bow is  Core’s Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions paper and cut  from my Silhouette. EASY!

Just cover the magnets with patterned paper after you cut them with the Epiphany Crafts round tool so they will “stick” to the back. This way you can change photos or even make a Christmas countdown. So many possibilities with this easy project.

Materials: 
Core’dinations Tim Holtz Seasonal Core Impressions
Heidi Swapp Believe
Epiphany Crafts 25 Round Tool
Metal Roof Flashing
Metal Stand
 Xyron Mega Tape Runner
Magnets
Silhouette Bow

Next up Gail Linder…I am so making this, too!
I took advantage of the super cute number patterned paper, appropriately called Countdown, and punched out the number 1 to 25 to create a countdown to Christmas using an embroidery hoop as my “frame”!  It was so easy to coordinate Core’dinations cardstock with the Heidi Swapp ‘Believe’ collection. I embossed and sanded my cardstock to match it to the distressed look of the patterned paper!
 
I can’t wait to create more of these for a little cluster of frames to hang up at Christmas time!

What a great day…the sun is shining…only a few more days until Friday…what more can we ask for? WELL, Designer Debbie Standard has some layouts for you today.

This layout brought a smile to my face today. First up the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain background…and the colors…yellow…gray…and that pop of red are just awesome! Oh and you cannot forget about the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions. Debbie hand cut those details for her title and subtitles.

And how cute is this???  Debbie was inspired by all the sunburst layouts she has been  seeing on Pinterest. SPEAKING of Pinterest…make sure you follow us on our page HERE! What a great way to use up those scraps of Core you have in your bin. AND all those lush embossed (and sanded of course!) designs are gorgeous, gorgeous!

Debbie cut, embossed and sanded each section and then created the sunburst effect along the top.  Then she added the Stacy Julian Core Impressions pre-embossed words along the side.  Then she added some clouds that she die cut using the Whitewash collection which makes really great clouds by the way because you can lightly sand them and bring out the blue tones.

Supplies:

Core Essentials
Stacy Jullian collection
White Wash Collection 6 X 6
Embossing folders – numerous
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Queen & Co. Washi tape and gems

Design Team Member Debbie Standard uses Core in the most magical ways! Did I say layouts only?  ooooops…I am going to squeak in a card there, too. 🙂

Check out how she used the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered Collection today.

First up:  Embossed AND Sanded 🙂

See sketch for this card here.

And a bit of everything on this layout…some sanded die cuts…some embossing and sanding….edge distressing…you name it! It’s perfection.

And another layout from Debbie using some of the scraps from the card above on here and some Tim Holtz KRaft Core Seasonal Impressions…love how these core’dinate, don’t you?
