Good Tuesday Morning!

We have the CoolEst Tutorial for you today from Design Team Member  Lydia Jackson. She created these awesome corrugated alphas for her layout.  If you have been to our blog before you know how much we love our Fiskars Paper Crimper! And pair it with the Xyron and you have  the perfect match.

This is a great technique for any papercrafting project…cards…layouts…mini albums… you name it!

Check out this Texture!!!

And here is the layout! Make sure you check out the additional details on  this layout. There is so much to look at like all the additional scoring along the edge of the layout and the punched strip along the top. Lydia used FIVE different colors of Core Essentials, too!

Have a GREAT week. Again, the Team is working on the Design Team Call as we speak. Stay tuned this

week for some more details.  Thanks for your patience!

Easter Tutorial Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Today’s Tutorial comes from Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char made the cutest Easter Treat Bags using Core’dinations Vintage Cardstock and is sharing them with us today.

Step 1: Cut a 4” x 12” piece of Core’dinations cardstock. Using the back side of your cardstock; score at 4.5”, 6.5” and 11”.

Step 2: Using your scoring tool, make a grid line pattern on the 4” x 4.5” section.

Step 3: Fold along 4.5”, 6.5” and 11” scored lines. Turn cardstock over and sand with your Sand It Gadet.

Step 4: Cut a window into the grid section using your Nestabilities, Coluzzle or other cutting tool. The window should be slightly closer to the fold line.

Step 5: If desired, add an alternate piece of 2” x 4” cardstock on the 1” end flap. This is what your treat bag should look like so far:

Step 6: Line up cardstock and punch holes through the 4” x 4.5” grid section and 2” flap. Embellish. I used my Cricut to cut out tiny egg shapes, and ran them through my Xyron sticker maker.

Step 7: Place treats in a small plastic or cellophane bag. Staple on to the inside of the 4” x 6.5” section.

Step 8: Fold treat bag together and place the flap over top. Run a cute ribbon through and you’re finished!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
