I loved this sketch over at Page Drafts and knew exactly what picture I wanted to use with it.  Love how the Tim Holtz Shattered collection gives you such great background even if you don’t do anything to it – it already has a great look.  Love that I can do a layout and never touch any patterned paper.

Start with a Core Impressions base so you don’t have to emboss it on your own.  Then use the Tim Holtz/Sizzix 12X 2 strips and emboss.   The Core tags are so easy to use and add to your page.
I created the flower with Spellbinder’s dies and some Mr Huey’s spritz.  I love how the flowers look when they have been sanded and sprayed – my new favorite thing to do!

Now, inspiration please??? I mean what else is inspiring you right now besides snow?

Happy Snow Day Core Fans!  Kate here, sharing a simple snow layout with you using lots of Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Dot.
I did lots of sanding with the Sand It Gadget in this layout to make it pop.

I cut the snowflakes out of Core’dinations Snowflake using my Silhoutte, painted the die cut with some glue and added some fine glitter.

Core’dinations Supplies:

12 x 12 Spotted Tillie Dot

12 x 12 Core Essentials Neutrals

Sand It Set

Other Supplies:

Fiskars Crimper

American Crafts Thickers

Silhoutte “Snowflake Lace” cut

Helmar & Xyron Adhesives

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And next up two layouts from Debbie Standard:

I have always loved the Jenni Bowlin collection. The reds, blacks and browns are always so striking. And there are so many wonderful collections in Core’dination’s products that it’s easy to mix and match to get just the look you want. For this I started with some Jenni Bowlin with the dots, added a piece of the JB with the words on it. Then I used some of the Tim Holtz Distress 2 X 12 pieces and embossed and sanded them. I added a few other color scraps and then sanded and cut around the My Mind’s Eye Core mini label. Then I punched out some snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch, attached them and then added the Queen & Co and the Kaser Goosebumps. The kids having so much are my grandkids, who had an unexpected snow day and a great family play day.

Tim Holtz is always a winner in my book. For this page I used papers from his Shattered collection. I started with the red sheet and left it as is. Then I took a sheet of black and embossed it with a snow flake embossing folder and sanded it. Then I choose a piece of the yellow and embossed it with a folder of winter sayings. Then I added the strips of grey and white. I used my Silhouette to make the snowflakes out of the Glitter Silk White paper and added some of the Queen & Co. Pom poms. I used some random My Mind’s Eye buttons as well. This is my little great-nephew, Cason, who is finally old enough to get out and enjoy the snow.

More Thanksgiving Projects AND a Video!

November 21, 2013 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Tim Holtz

Today we have more inspiration for you during this amazing time of year. Looking for a beautiful frame for your mantel or your wall?  This would also make a really fabulous gift for the host of your Thanksgiving Day celebration. You can get inexpensive frames at your local craft store or maybe you have an old one your stash and have been waiting to be inspired. Now is the time! You can’t get this kind of the at Pier 1 Imports now can you?

Here is a little bit about these projects from Mary Pat Siehl from Siehled with a Kiss:

I love to decorate my house for fall and Thanksgiving.  My mantle was missing something this year so I decided to make asome fall/Thanksgiving framed art.  I started with some yummy Shattered Core’dinations from Tim Holtz.  To me these colors just scream fall with the beautiful hues.  Then I  used my Silhouette to cut out my design (item #46560 and #13696).  After framing it using an old 8×10 frame that I had on hand, I placed it on my mantel with my other home decor.  I made a video for you to see how it came together so scroll down!

Supplies:
Core Essentials
Core’dinations Tim Holtz Shattered Cardstock
Tattered Angels mist
Silhouette images #46560 and #13696 (Falling back into school and thankful)

And we aren’t done yet! How about a super cute Turkey Card from Mary Pat?  I don’t care how old you are…turkeys are too cute and never get old when it comes to Thanksgiving. I can’t imagine this card not sanded..it is the perfect  touch to any project!

I love making shaped cards because they are just so much fun and just so adorable.  For my project I created a shaped card using my Silhouette ( item # 34152) and I used all Core Essential pieces.  Once I cut out and sanded each layer around the edges to give it a distressed look, I just adhered it!   I think it turned out so cute!

Core and Couture Creations Giveaway

And who’s ready for some projects from Design Team Member Kim Moreno??? I don’t think there is one project on here where Kim doesn’t work her  ScorPal. Scoring is a GREAT and EASY way to add accents to projects. From creating a unique frame around your projects to adding journal lines and even making your own patterns….you name it! You can do it with Core’dinations!!

Foam letter stickers: American Crafts
Tool: ScorPal

And a few cards…Kim can really work her card magic. All you need is some Core and a few accents and, “Voila!” You have some gorgeous cards for any occasion.

I know we shared this card on Facebook already but with the upcoming Holiday, I wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to see it. Repeating the same shape in different colors and lines of Core’dinations looks amazing! AND it’s quick and easy. You just grab some scraps, run them through your embossing machine…adhere…and that’s it!

I used the ScorPal to create the border around the edge of my card and sanded it slightly to reveal the kraft core of the paper. I then ran the papers through my Cuttlebug to emboss the leaves… sanded each of them and cut them out. I used the 250 to adhere the leaves down and then used the glue dots to keep the sentiment block down- I wanted it to be a bit more tacky since it was going over the twine.

kim Happy Thanksgiving

And another cute  card…I just love these little square cards!  Scoring is the perfect accent, too. Here is how she did it:

I used my scor pal to make the lines around the edge of the card. I then ran the pink paper through my cuttlebug and sanded the sentiment slightly to reveal the colored core of the pink paper. I then backed it in patterned paper twice and adhered to the center of card and added jewels and felt embellishment to finish.

Distressing is sooooooooooooooo much fun with Core! AND you need a good adhesive to adhere 4 layers of cardstock. And something new that I tried….I put my rubons on first and then sanded over them so they got a bit distressed, too.
