With Core’dinations, it’s all about the technique! The beauty of Core’dinations IS, the core. The core of the paper, getting to the core of the matter. You can do so much with it!


Emboss it, crimp it, sand it and run it through your label machine it! These are the things I have done on this layout. If you haven’t already visited, be sure to check out the technique videos on the Core blog. There are many more techniques to see there too!


Crimp it! Running your Core’dinations cardstock through a crimper with some sanding provides not only a neat texture but a striped effect depending upon the color core you reveal with your sanding.


Sand it! I used the Spotted Tillie cardstock to create my own Lego bricks! Cut each brick to size using your paper trimmer and sand! Dead easy!!


Label it! I created the sub title of my layout by running an appropriate sized strip of cardstock through my label maker and sanded it! Simple yet so effective!

  2. Love this layout! Those Legos you made are so clever. I think sanding the edges of the blocks made them seem so real. Thanks for sharing with us!
