We LOVE these altered 'Twas the Night Before Christmas "JOY" letters from Annette. The perfect addition to your holiday decor! Enjoy her tutorial below as well.

"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

Next, we have this stunning canvas by Keri. She really creates an amazing piece with Core'dinations and Graphic 45!

"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

The Core'dinations and Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day Four!

Graphic45_NBattilana_Botanical_Tea_Coredinations_Austin_2of7

Welcome to Day 4 of the Core'dinations and Graphic 45 blog hop! What do Jane Austen, family memories, and expectant families all have in common? Our Design Team members created beautiful projects for all of these topics today on the blog! Nichola Battilana, Andrew Roberts, and Lori Williams will be sharing bright and beautiful ideas today using G45 and Core'dinations cardstock.

Nichola amazes us with a Jane Austen inspired hat box, slippers, and shoebox. Her imagination and creativity knows no bounds!

"I’ve been wanting to create a Jane Austen inspired something for a while. What started out as a quest to make a paper bonnet quickly grew to include a hat box, slippers and shoe box. The slippers are a variation of a pattern by Glenda Waterworth. The boxes are simple square and round boxes I crafted to size (which is actually pretty darned small). As a jumping off point I chose ‘Robin’s Egg’ from Cordinations Signature Series Graphic 45 Lights and coordinated with several papers from Botanical Tea." ~Nichola

Next, we have the most beautiful tags by Andrew with beautiful memories and photos of his family!

"The inspiration for this project was the Core’dinations cardstock colours. The Graphic 45 signature series colours are wonderful to use and I love how they are a perfect match with Graphic 45 paper collections. I have demonstrated this through the use of 6 different collections and the cardstock colours I think match best. I also asked my children what their favorite colours were and made a tag with a photo of each of them.

Tip: When using dies with open sections you use contrasting cardstock colours on the back of the die cut images as I have on the picture wheel used on these tags." ~Andrew

Wouldn't you love to receive this beautiful card? Lori tells you the inspiration for this beautiful Baby 2 Bride card below.

"My neighbors are expecting their first little girl and I knew I wanted to make them a card to congratulate their family. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection to use “Baby to Bride” to create for them a heartfelt wish. I can’t wait to hold their new little bundle of joy, soon enough.

I like to layer my projects and a great way to add that extra layering detail is with Core’dinations paper. The colors match Graphic 45 collections making it super easy to blend together. I used an embossing folder on the Core’dinations paper and then sanded to really make the embossed portion pop. It takes a plain sheet of paper and turns it’s into a real WOW. The chubby little babies were then fussy cut and layered over the paper along with some various embellishments. I also finished off the interior of my cards as I always want the inside to be pretty like the outside." ~Lori

"I LOVE to create these mini canvases. And you can achieve some really cool backgrounds with the Core’dinations cardstock! I simply embossed mine with my Big Shot and a folder, primed it with clear gesso, then went to town coloring with inks and paints. After I was done I sanded the paper to add more interest on the raised areas! I used lots of G45 supplies to top it off , Graphic 45 has some of the BEST stamps! Especially the script ones!" ~Miranda

Katie amazed us with this amazing creation using Typography and Core'dinations cardstock. So incredible!

"I happen to found this wooden book end in one of the drawers near my youngest sister’s desk… It was one of her projects in her Design & Technology unit when she was in secondary school… To give this book end a new lease of life, I decided to alter this book using some embossed clock images on Photogenic cardstock, white washed it and added on tons of metal staples and embellishments to give this typographic grunge look… Typography certainly has some interesting verses that I found it applicable to serve some wisdom for her - a reminder that life is not just about dreaming and hope for the best, but to live, laugh, adopt, encourage and be genuine… Patience is key and hope this sentimental altered piece will serve as a good life reminder...
