"Each year I look forward to adding to my holiday home decor with a new handmade item. This year, I created a simple project using inexpensive paper mache letters from the craft store along with beautiful Twas The Night Before Christmas collection and Core-dinations cardstock. The poinsettia die makes the most realistic flower, I just had to share with you how it was made. Once it’s added to the word JOY, it will make a festive addition to any mantel, shelf or window sill for the holidays. " ~Annette

"When I heard we were doing a blog hop with Core’dinations, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I loved the idea of mixing as many colors of Core’dinations Signature G45 cardstock with as many patterns as I could to form a background for a mixed media piece. This piece measures 8x10 and features images from G45’s “Typography” collection, along with lots of fun texture, paints and stamped images. I loved the saying “Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” because I think it is so true. Life can get hard and busy and sometimes just plain unfun, but when we take time to express ourselves through art, we can...even if just for a short time...be free of all those burdens and pour our hearts onto a page or canvas."~Keri

"I love making cards, but sometimes they take me quite some time to make. That’s why I am a huge fan of the Staples ATC tags. They are smaller than cards, but can still be used as a small gift card to go with a present. I usually don’t decorate the backside of the ATC tags, but thought it might be nice to add a bit of colour to their backsides as well. Therefore, I took out some beautiful Core’dinations cardstock and inked and teared them to create a simple yet nice backside that I can write a short sentiment on."~Romy
