If you are just joining us …WELCOME!

From now until Christmas Eve we are showcasing our Design Team’s Favorite cardstock. Each designer picked a few of their favorite lines and created some gorgeous projects for you showcasing why they love it so much.

Then, on that day, just by commenting on that post, you have the chance to win! AND some days we might be showcasing more than one line … like today! 😉

Here is how it works:

1.) We post every day. The following day we pick a winner and then start over so keep coming back!

2.) You have all day and night to post. Yes, you heard me! You can win up until the next day when I pick a winner when I get up. We want our international fans to be able to win and they are normally sleeping now 😉

3.) Want additional chances to win?  Comment on Facebook and share the excitement on your blogs! If you share on your blog, come back here and link us up. Remember, you can do it every day for more chances to win!

All-in-one Core’! I love it!

Winners must email to claim prizes with address and phone number (if international).

So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways????

Today is all about Glitter Silk!

Did  you know that it has a smooth surface so that adhesive works better?

Did you know that the glitter stays on the cardstock and not on your face, hands and desk?

And the back is white so cardmakers will love it, too!

Design Team member Kim Jefress created this gorgeous tree for us today using Glitter Silk.

Step 1 Gather your supplies- 3 sheets of co ordinating glitter silk cardstock, a flower punch, pins, a foam tree, mist that co ordiantes with one of the sheets of glitter silk.

Step 2 Take your foam tree and spray it lightly with the mist.

Step3 While you are waiting for the mist to dry punch the flowers from the sheets of Glitter Silk. This cardstock punches BEAUTIFULLY! No glitter mess!!!!

Step 4 Take a pin and put it through the centre of your flower and push into the tree. Continue until the whole tree is covered.

And here is the finished project:
