Love this card? Here is how Clare did it:
Make cardbase from cardstock. Emboss Black Magic cardstock, sand using Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Ink edges using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink, adhere to card and round bottom corners. Add patterned paper (Authentique Thrilling Collection) panel and adhere sticker stitches. Add ribbon, bow and twine. Adhere Authentique Thrilling Collection stickers to cardstock, ink edges and fussy cut, attach to card using foam pads. Adhere flower, enamel dot and broom, to finish.
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!

We have some fun projects for you today. Hope this weekend is a scrappy one! But first we want to make sure we see you back here Monday!
First a card from Designer Gail Linder:
One of the things I love about Core’dinations Cardstock, besides the colored core, is that there are so many fantastic colors of cardstock. Color can evoke a feeling in a layout, it can help support the theme of a layout or it can just compliment the photos. It is awesome that Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock has so many colors that it makes it so easy to do of these things! When creating this “All Boy” layout, I wanted to use what I consider “all boy” colors. Core’dinations Cardstock did not fail me!
To pop the ColorCore on the green background paper, orange arrows and brown titlework I simply distressed the cardstock with the Core’dinations Sandit Gadget and Dust Buddy.
I stamped some fun boy adjectives after adding a bit of Distress Paint to a Core’dinations Core’Tag. These sturdy, smooth tags are awesome for adding wet mediums. Stamping on the textured ColorCore Cardstock has such a great effect, too, as you can see on the “guareneed trouble” spot.

Happy Wednesday! We hope you are enjoying your summer so far and today we want to start out with a super summery layout from Design Team Member Tracy Gruber. I always struggle with white as a base for my layouts but Tracy makes it looks so easy! Plus…all that embossing just makes me happy.
Happy Wednesday Everyone! Today we have some gorgeous gorgeous creations from Designer Vivian Keh. She creates the most gorgeous rolled flowers! And then there is a layout…some Chocolate Box cardstock from the Fancy Pants Core Impressions line ….something for EVERYONE today!And a detail of that flower…SWOOOOOON!Hello Core’dinations fans! Vivian here today to share with you an elegant floral card using a muted palette of Core’dinations Cardstock. I used a warm beige from the Core’dinations Jenni Bowlin “Everyday” Collection for my card base, sanding the decorative leaf pattern already conveniently pre-embossed in this cardstock. I layered an elegant grey from the Neutral Collection that I had embossed with a great Sizzix embossing folder. For the blossom, I die-cut and sanded the pieces for nice shabby appeal, piercing with a simple brad to hold the bloom together. To finish, I added a bit of distress ink on all pieces, some bling and pretty seam binding.
Hope you enjoyed my project today, and thanks for looking! For more of my inspirations, please visit me on my blog!

Need a wedding card? Look no further!I love the aqua/ chocolate brown color pairing in just about everything, from papercrafts to home decor – both fresh and comforting. For today’s project, I used Core’dinations Fancy Pants Designs”Refreshed” Collection, which delivers that comforting chocolate embossed in a variety of designs as well as your pick of pretty pastels that are also pre-embossed. This makes for great papercrafted projects in a variety of themes.
I sanded all the layers and die-cuts and added distress ink to the edges. The sentiment was stamped using watermark ink and then heat embossed with embossing powder. Just a little bit of embellishment and this card was done.Supplies:Core’dinations – Fancy Pants Core Impressions “Refreshed” Collection, Venetian Lace (Cream Color) Cardstock, Sand-It Gadget, Dust BuddySizzix – Bigz Die “Butterflies and Labels”Hampton Art – “Happily Ever After” Clear Stamp SetTim Holtz – Distress Ink

I chose several bold colors from Core’dinations Darks Collection, which have great grounding colors that are perfect for masculine projects. As you can see in the detail shot, there is so much easy interest one can create with Core – die-cut it, paper-punch it, sand it, tear it, emboss it, crimp it, distress it, stamp it. All of these were used in this layout. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination!The story of how my husband and I met is really special. And both of us still can’t believe how serendipitous our meeting truly was. Hence, the “when pigs fly” stamping on my background, using the great kraft side of our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Cardstock with a simple black ink. His smile, and humorous personality brought levity to the rather challenging moment in our lives captured here on film. I simply layered a bunch of Core elements on top of a piece of old book paper, topping off with a little bling and some scrunched up mulberry paper that I had misted.Supplies:Core’dinations – Darks Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Venetian Lace (Cream Color), Sand-It Gadget, Dust BuddyDarice – Dominoes Embossing Folder
