Okay..now here’s that inspo!!!!
Ava here to share with you a cute little Christmas Decor item that you can make using the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral collection. Snip a few pieces of greenery from outdoors and you have a great table center piece or home decor item.
Search the internet images for pattern’s or check out Coats and Clark for this great reindeer pattern.
Emboss, sand and cut out two pieces of each pattern for each of the reindeer. You need a front and back which is glued together.
See how nice the inner core of the Core’dinations Cardstock matches so well with the paper pieced antler color of the Core’dinations Neutral collection?
Have some fun creating your own home decor items from the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral Collection. Decor items can be so vogue with sanded matching color tones.
Emboss a strip of paper approximately 2.5 “, tape some christmas washi tape to the backside sand the front to reveal the core and trim your paper strips to the width and size of your choice. Add a rolled stem and some ribbon and you are good to go.
We have a fun treat for you! Merry Christmas! Happy New year!

How about some inspiration from our Design Team using this fabulous line of Core’dinations!
First up we have a layout from Kate Nolan-Denham.Looks so cool, doesn’t it? Loving the red and green she used here for a cute Christmas layout:
And next up some projects from Debbie Standard using the Shattered cardstock. Love how she used the doilies on this layout and all that embossing and sanding is INCREDIBLE! You can use your Kraft-Core as is or play with it…sky is the limit.
And it works GREAT for cards, too! Debbeie added a touch of stamping with one of our Smooth Tags (they are SO great for stamping).
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!
And a close up:
And check out how to create this wonderful piece with Mary Pat in her video below:
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!
Today Heather Kaesgan created the most AWESOME tablescape for us that is Halloween themed.
Did you see Jennifer’s Thankful-themed decorations the other day? If you LOVE burlap like I do you should check it out here. It’s amazing!
