It’s fall! I can’t help but decorate my little heart out when it comes to fall. I love fall colors but I always seem to add a little twist to it. A heathery aqua mixed in with all the other fall colors just speaks perfection to me, so when I started designing this wreath, it ended up with a mix of non-traditional aqua and tried-and-true yellow. And the juxtaposition doesn’t end there. A mix of somewhat predictable leaves combined with stylish medallions makes this wreath modern and straighforward–my favorite look. No matter what colors you choose for your wreath, you’ll love how easy it is to create.
Fall Medallion Wreath Supplies
- Darice 8″ Wreath
- Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection Card Stock
- Darice Burlap Ribbon
- Autumn Leaves
- Straight Pins
Step 1: Wrap burlap ribbon around wreath form, securing the beginning and ends with straight pins.
Step 2: To make medallions, cut strips of card stock 1.5″ x 12″ and score every 1/2″.
Step 3: Fold the card stock accordion style, and sand the edges of the folded card stock.
Step 4: Adhere ends of each card stock strip together to form a ring, and let dry. With the ring on a flat surface, press the top edges inward to create a medallion, and glue the medallion to a scrap of card stock to secure.
Step 5: Secure leaves and medallions to the wreath using straight pins.
Step 6: Secure a piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath using straight pins as a hanger.
And just like that you have a striking wreath. Hang it up and enjoy your creation.
We want to wish you all an amazing Independence Day! We are celebrating our freedom on the Core blog today with a layout featuring Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions.
Another project I wanted to complete before the baby was born are some pin-on ribbons to give the the new big sister and brother when they come to visit in hospital! Core’dinations cardstock was perfect as it’s sturdy enough for the project, as I *hope* to add these to their scrapbook albums eventually.
First up: for the big sister and of course it had to be pink!
Lots of layers! Some were punched, some were cut with my Cameo electonic cutting machine and the “ribbons” hanging down the bottom were simply handcut.
I used the heavy weight 110lb smooth white cardstock to print the labels and cut them into the banner shape.
And here is big brother’s.I kept to the same design but switched the colors:
You can see the dimension in the bottom layer in the close up photo below. For this I simply cut some strips and folded them before adhering them, alternating the colours.
I snapped this photo on quickly while I was assembling the ribbons, just to give you an idea of the different layers and how they all came together.
Finally, I adhered a pin back (bought from my local craft supply store) to the back of the ribbon so they can wear them proudly!

Hi Everyone! Gail Lindner here…. I had a simple design in mind using ONLY Core’dinations cardstock and looked to Pinterest for some fun color combinations! I came up with four combinatons and made several of each in one big creating session!
I cut the sentiment “Thanks” out using my Silhouette Cameo but wanted it to stand out from the background. I saw the trick of cutting out several and layering them during some blog hopping and it really was a quick way of adding dimension that you can see in the following close up photo.
Because the writing is quite detailed and fine, using pop dots would not only be time consuming but would also not be sturdy enough. I simply cut multiple words out of a full sheet of white cardstock and ended up adhering four layers to give it enough dimension.
I’ve also used techniques such as embossing, sanding, distressing and folding to add interest and dimension.
It sure feels good to have a nice collection of thank you cards handy again!

It’s Gail here again! I’m putting some creative energy to work to create some layouts and things for our sweet baby #3. Here’s a layout documenting some thoughts on late pregnancy, using one of my favourite color combinations of Core cardstock!
For this layout, I started with the idea of placing different colored squares of Core’dinations cardstock over my background, varying the size and texture of each one.
I started by just cutting some squares in various sizes and playing with the placement. You can see I’ve created a few visual triangles to balance the layout – mainly with the three squares of the navy and light pink cardstock.
You can see a couple of fun embossing folders that I’ve used on the squares! As usual, a quick sand to reveal the core brings them to life!
For the title and accents on my layout, I put my Silhouette Cameo cutter to good use and cut a variety of hearts and arrows in the same colours as the squares and scattered them, raising some on pop dots.
My title was also cut with the Cameo using my favorite font: Thirsty Script. You’ll find it works wonderfully with the Core cardstock!
