So how we doing so far??? Are you having fun!?!??!  We sure are! We are keeping with our regular schedule Tuesday Tips today because Maya Road Chipboard and Core’dinations are so much fun and there are so many unique things you can do with chipboard and cardstock!

Remember those GREAT videos we have on our website here? Make sure you watch the video on Outlining that Design Team Member Cari Locken showcases on this beautiful layout with loads of Core Essentials Cardstock.

And check out all the techniques on this layout by Design Team Member Hera Frei!   She used an ENTIRE sheet of rubons on this layout in addition to Maya  Road mists, chipboard tags,  and flowers. The chipboard tags were part of an album but they look great on a layout, too! They really show off those photos beautifully.

Here are some tips on how to create these cool  letters! Take your mist (Maya Mist Hydrangea Blue) and make a mask by cutting a border with the Fiskars Wave Border Punch and then just  lay it over half of the chipboard letters and spray! LOVE IT!

And….GUESS WHAT????   you CAN use rubons on our Core Impressions Cardstock. It looks SO COOL! Check out this fun detail from Hera’s layout using in ENTIRE sheet of Maya Road Rubons.

Don’t forget to leave a comment on today’s post for a chance to win some Core’dinations Goodies!!! You have until Friday night at Midnight!
