Happy {pre} Valentine’s Week!

This week we have Valentine’s Day projects for you all week long. From layouts to cards to fun altered projects we have a ton of inspiration for you.

Let’s get stared with a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard featuring the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. This pack of cardstock is SO perfect for the Holidays. You can pick and choose from a variety of colors that core’dinate with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core and the Shattered Kraft Core.

How easy is that?

Fabulous Friday with Kids and Core!

Before we get started, don’t forget to sign up for our NEW Hard Core Crafter program! Details are here.

You will get access to tons of giveaways….EXCLUSIVE videos….and it is FREE!!!!

I know we normally do Tutorials on Tuesday but we got a little behind this week with our HCC program and posts so today we have a fun tutorial for you. I wanted to make sure I shared this before Valentine’s Day in case anyone wanted to use it as inspiration.

Our team members have been working with their very own kids to bring you Kids Crafts with Core!

A new series of quick and easy projects designed especially for you to be able to do with your very own family.


Design Team Member Char Dobson created these super cute Valentine’s Day cards with her (uber talented) nine-year old daughter!

Char’s daughter planned the entire pattern, colors, embossing folder….everything! on this project by herself. She even found the heart shape on her own while looking through Cricut cartridge booklets. AND they put this together in less than thirty minutes.

Yes, thirty minutes!

Char’s daughter has loved crafts since she was very young but has only been scrapbooking and cardmaking with her for a year or two. Amazing!

READY?

Step 1 & 2: Cut out four large hearts in a dark colour. We used the Cricut + Desiner’s Calendar Cartridge for this project:
Step 3: Cut out four slighter smaller hearts in a lighter contrasting colour.
Step 3: Cut out four slighter smaller hearts in a lighter contrasting colour.
Step 4: Cut out letters to form the word LOVE. You could also use Thickers or alpha stickers.
Step 5: Emboss the small hearts using your favourite Valentine’s themed embossing folder. We chose Without a Lock by Couture Creations.
Step 6: Sand.
Tip: Sand in a tray like this for easy clean up!
Step 7: Adhere small hearts to large heart background.
Step 8: Adhere letters.
Step 9: Embellish if desired. We added some candy-heart style stickers from Recollections.
Step 10: Adhere finished hearts to a length of ribbon. Tie a loop at the top.
Step 11: Your finished project….
