Did you know we have videos along the right hand side of the blog??? Make sure you click here to see all off them. Each one of the videos will core’dinate with our 12 days of techniques.

The first day of our 12 Days of Techniques is sanding featuring some layouts from Hera Frei. Sanding is an easy way to change the look of Core’dinations Cardstock instantly.  Since the core is a different color, sanding is a great way release that inner core. Make sure you check out the video here for some GREAT tips, notice how she uses the Dust Buddy.  On these two layouts, Hera uses our Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions cardstock. It comes pre-embossed so all you need to do is sand! The Dust Buddy and Sand it Gadget are great tools to have to get to the Core of your favorite Core’dinations papers so that is why we are  giving them away today!

Not only does Hera sand away the brown from the Jenni Bowlin Chocolate box to show the red core but she mixes THREE different lines of Core’dinations.  Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions (brown) Core Essentials (red layout base), and Whitewash (layered under the Queen & Co. embellishments).

Make sure you leave a comment today to win the Carodstock, Dust Buddy & Sand It Gadget! We will pick a inner and post tomorrow . Don’t forget the Teresa Collins give-a-way!!!!

Please note that prizes will be shipping the week of December 27.
