Happy Monday!

We all started back to school last week.  The boys are happy with their teachers but I still can't get over that my baby is in Kindergarten.  (sniff sniff!)  My classes seem to be good so all is good.  I am still scrapping summer though!  Today I have a a summer layout using tons and tons of Core'dinations!

I love this photo of my hubby and son building a sand castle on vacation.  They worked and worked!  It was a great day!

I made this video for you demonstrating the tearing technique using the awesome Core!

Core'dinations Design Team Call

Welcome to Siehled With A Kiss.  Today I have a fun filled post for you today.  Core'dinations is having their Design Team Call and I am once again applying to be on this totally amazing team.  If you have followed my blog for any part of time you know that I am totally addicted to all things Core'dination.  I can't seem to make a project without it!  I have a couple of projects for you today.  

My first project uses the brand NEW Chalk Core.  This cardstock is so awesome and amazing! The cardstock comes in both White and Colors.  I use both of these types in my Back to School Chalkboard Sign!  On this project I demonstrate the techniques of Outlining and Sanding!

1.  Place the 12x12 Chalk Core over a die cut piec.  
2.  Sand the Chalk Core using a Sand It Gadget to reveal the inner core.  
3.  Die cut the letters and numbers using a Die Cut Machine,   (I used my Silhouette) and then Sand the letters and numbers.  
4. Optional Step- I used a Gel White Pen and added the lines just to add a bit more dimension to the letters.
5.  Adhere the letters on the cardstock.
6.  Have your son or daughter pose with the sign on the first day of school and you will have a memorable photo!

I made a How To Video for you on how this project came about.  

Supply list
Chalk Core (White and Color)
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
White Gel Pen

For my Second Project I have a fun Scrapbook layout to share.  The project Let's Roll used many fun techniques using the amazing Core Cardstock.  It uses the tearing, dry embossing, corrugating, and sanding! There are so many fun things you can do with the Core Cardstock to make each project unique!

I have a video that demonstrates all the amazing techniques!  I hope you enjoy it.
Supply List
Cardstock- Core Essentials (Darks and Neutrals)
Pattern Paper and Chipboard- Echo Park
Stamps- Some Odd Girl
Ink- Jenni Bowlin
Dies- Paper Smooches
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy

For my third project I have a card.  I love stamping and Core'dinations has THE best cardstock for stampers.  Core'dinations has a new line called Basics and there is a 110 lb. cardstock and it is so perfect for using alcohol markers.  On this project I dry emboss, color, stamp, die cut and sand the cardstock!

 To create this card:
1.  Cut a base that is slightly smaller (4x5.25) and emboss it using an embossing folder.
2.  Stamp using Memento ink your stamped images on the 110 lb. cardstock and color with your favorite pencils or markers.  I used the Spectrum Noir markers.
3.  Cut the images out.
4.  Using the Core Essentials Sand the paper. It is a lot easier to sand first using the Sand It Gadget. This will give your image a bit of a distressed look.
5.  Stamp you image using your favorite ink.
6.  Cut the image out.
7.  Die Cut some grass and arrange the items on the card.

Supply List
Cardstock- Core Basics 110. lb, Gemstones, Core Essentials
Stamps- The Alley Way Stamps
Ink- Memento, Hero Arts
Spectrum Noir Markers
Darice Embossing Folder

Dust Buddy

I have also included a couple of photos of some of my all time favorite projects that I made during the last term of the DT.  Enjoy!

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you see how much I love Core'dinations!  It simply is THE best cardstock to create all your projects.  

Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Aug 15 Core'dinations and Petaloo Blog Hop

Happy Friday!
Core'dinations has teamed up with Petaloo for a fun exchange. The theme is Back to School. I made two cards. For the first one I used some Core Essentisls and  dry embossed  and sanded it. I then took some 110 lb. smooth & die cut it and stamped it. I then added a fun clothespin and added the beautiful Petaloo flowers.
For my second card I used the brand new Chalk Core Note Cards. I scored the center and sanded it to expose the core. I added a stamped Core Tag and the added my wonderful flowers.
I made a video for you on how I made the second card.

Thanks so much for joining me today. I will be back next week with new projects! See you then. Have a wonderful and crafty day!

Aug 13 Lawnscaping School Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

I can't believe that school starts next week!  This summer went by so fast.  It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating our last day.  Well, Lawnscaping is having a Back to School themed project challenge.

 I start next Monday and the boys start on Tuesday.  I am never home in the mornings and  so miss them so I like to leave them little notes on their place mats for when they come downstairs.  I thought this challenge will get me started on one of the boys cards.

For my card I broke into a Lawn Fawn paper pack, stamps and dies!  Lots and Lots of fun.  I also used some new Core'dinations!  The new Kraft and Vellum!  You can see all this in action with my new video!

Aug 12 SOG Love Digi Cut File Release

Happy Tuesday!

I am so excited to share the Brand New Digi Release from  Some Odd Girl.  I am using the new Digi Cut Files.  This collection contains some really awesome titles like Love, Oh Snap, and more!  I used the title Love for my layout.

I am still on my quest to use up my paper along with getting caught up on my scrapping.  With this layout I was able to score on both of my goals.  Every year we make yummy Christmas cookies for Santa.  The boys LOVE decorating their Christmas cookies.  I also broke into my stash and found some buttons to add as embellishments.  Isn't it funny that just a couple of years ago I used buttons on every project and I moved away from them once sequins and wood veneer came into popularity.  Well, I got them out and I loved them!

I made this video on how this layout came about.

I loved this sketch.  What got me was the 4 photos!  I was wanting to finish off Easter and I had three photos to scrap so I got busy!  Here is what I came up with!
I know my layout is a bit different but I kept some of the points the same.  I love it when I have an idea and then when I am done it is totally different!

Aug 4th Elle's Studio Christmas Layout

Happy Monday!

I wanted to scrap this weekend but I have to say I didn't have a lot of  mojo so I found a sketch from Elle's Studio from their Sketch Thursday Challenge.  I love  these challenges to jump start me and I have to say this sketch was just so much fun to work with!

So I am still working on my goal to finish 2012 and so I have a Christmas Layout to share!
Can I just say I had so much fun playing with this paper collection.  Love all the fun papers and fun embellishments.
