We are so excited to be sharing this week of May Arts, Petaloo AND Core’dinations with you!

It is DAY THREE already?  Can you believe that?  That is how time flies around here especially when you are having fun and being inspired.

THREE awesome  companies have come together to inspire you. And our teams have been working hard to create some festive projects for you, too. It’s all about the Holidays. From Halloween to Thanksgiving and even Christmas…you will see festive projects to get those creative juices flowing and hopefully give you some ideas for this time of year.

And of course…there are give-a-ways!!! All three companies will giving away tons and tons of goodies this week so make sure you head over to the Petaloo Blog and May Arts Blog for details and inspirational projects.

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program?  We sure do!  We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers.   How easy is that???


YES, I said Christmas. It’s holiday time so grab your spiced lattes and sit back and get ready  to be inspired. You are going to want to get out those Holiday papers from last year you never used and, of course, Core’dinations Cardstock!!!

Now, did you notice the title of this post?  I said “TREE” instead of THREE…and you will see why.

First up we have just the coolest card ever from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. I mean….a ribbon tree???  Yes! It’s ribbon, flower and cardstock (Core Essentials to be specific 😉 ) heaven here! That is all you need to create gorgeous projects.

And speaking of cool trees…..

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson made a tree out of flowers. How cool is that!?  Looks awesome…such a great way to  use up those flowers in your stash. And Lydia used ribbon, patterned paper and cardstock (Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Collection) on this layout seemlessly.

Here is a close-up of that tree….LOVE the star out of some Core Whitewash that Lydia sanded.

And here we have a layout from Design Team Member April Derrick. How awesome is that sanded Tim Holtz Kraft-Core????

From the ribbon banners to the flowers off the page…such a festive and FUN layout!
