Friday Core'dinations Back to School

Happy Friday!

Well, first week of school down the tubes!!!  It has been a big adjustment for all of us- lots of tired kiddos and mommies!!LOL!!  Going to have to rest up for a full week next week!

I have mentioned several times before that I leave the house for school well before anyone else wakes up in the house.  So I miss out on all the fun with back to school first day. So I like to leave Jack a little note for him to read that tells him that I love him and that I am thinking of him ALL day long.

This year I made a Core'dinations card for him that was on his placemat waiting for him.  I took a Silhoutte image and turned it into a card.  I cut the card base out in white.  I then cut the apple, stem and leaf out uisng Core'dinations.  I then embossed the three parts using different embossing folders.  For the apple a Cuttlebug dot embossing folder, for the stem a Darice woodgrain folder and for the leaf a Cuttlebug folder.  I love all the different textures.  I then cut down a Core smooth tag and stamped the sentiment and bus using some older Paper Trey Ink stamps.  Finally I attaced it to the card using some yummy twine from the Stringery!  As a final touch I added some black gems to represent seeds.  I love how it turned out and Jack LOVED it!!!
Too see some more of my back to school projects head on over to the Core'dinations blog.  I even have a how to video on how to use the Core Cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back next week with new projects.  See you then and have a wonderful and crafty weekend.
