What a great giveaway! I just found out about Cardmaps and would love to win this magazine!


And we have our Sketch Winner, too!  Kerrie Gurney come on down! We have a Core prize pack for you!

Donna & Kerrie..email ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com with your name, address and phone number by March 15th to claim your prize.


So how about Tuesday’s tip? I created this layout about our yearly St Patty’s Day parade. We go every year and just love, love it. It’s in a small town near us and it is CrAzY! The boys love it…they love the  necklaces and the candy they get. I, of course, love the bagpipes.   For this layout I used some Core Cuts, Core Couture, Spotted, Brights, Stacy Julian Core Impressions and Whimsy Core Impressions from BasicGrey.

I know we have said this a gazillion times before but it is amazing how EASILY our collection packs Core’dinate!

So what is the tip?   I have a few for you today 🙂

1.) After distressing your edges, use a dark contrasting color to ink like I did here with black. I love the way it looks against the pink Core Couture cardstock.

2.) Use pre-embossed cardstock,  like our Core Impressions lines or Step two layers from David Tutera Celebrate, for your die cuts. It is so so easy! It is just one less step then embossing them yourself.

I used Lifestyle Crafts dies for this layout.

And my last tip is…..

3.) Use of the large tags from Step 3 David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system for a journaling tag. One of our smaller tags wasn’t big enough for what I wanted to say so I reached for one of these. Plus the cardstock is smooth.

Please note the Stacy Julian Cardstock is no longer available as it has been discontinued. Stamps are Lawn Fawn, Ink by Memento, tickets are Maya Road and  misc buttons from my stash, Glue Arts adhesive.




Didn’t win this time? Don’t forget about about our $100 David Tutera giveway HERE!
