The crop dates are November 1st through the 10th 2013. Designers will be posting their challenges on their individual blogs on Friday, November 1st through Sunday November 3rd.  We have designers from all over the world so please be patient as the time zones will vary but they will do their best to have them up first thing Friday Morning.

You have through Sunday Night, November 10th midnight EST to get them posted. Main schedule is posted Friday and will be updated all weekend long. All questions should be directed to the Core blog to THIS post, on the desinger’s blog, or on our Facebook Hard Core Crop page here.

Each Designer will post their challenge on their blog with Linkitz. You will need to link your project to that post, again, by midnight EST November 10th.  This way you can post your projects on your blog, Flicker, Pinterest, Photobucket or whatever photo sharing site you use and then just link them. We will have a master challenge list here on the Core Blog for you so that you can keep track of all the challenges easily. Challenges will be for layouts, little alterables, and cards so everyone will be able to find some challenges they will enjoy. All you need is Core’dinations Cardstock. You must use Core on your creations to be eligible!  And all layouts must have photos.  

We will also be posting tidbits and fun stuff on our Facebook Event page HERE so stay close because you never know when a giveaway will pop up over there!

SO…how do you win some Core???

Designers will pick an entry from their blog to win the Core’dinations Cardstock designated that day. Our team is looking for creative uses for Core (and other things like following rules). Get creative and show off you use that Core’dinations Cardstock!  Some of our challenges are Holiday related due to the time of year. If you do not celebrate that particular holiday please feel free to use another one you feel fits the challenge the best. We are easy!

On or around November  13th, a master list of winners will be posted on the Core blog so please make sure you check back then to see if you won!  (Designers will be posting on their individual blogs as well). The more challenges you participate in, the better your chances of winning! You may do each challenge as many times as you wish but you may not combine challenges. We also ask since our Designers and Team have put a lot of time in to this crop that these are newly created projects just for this event.

So get those photos printed…stock up on adhesive…we are ready!


So how about a sneak of one of the challenges???? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL I couldn’t be MORE excited :)

Happy World Cardmaking Day 2013!

Who’s ready for a challenge?   Our World Card Making Day 2013 challenge is out of this world!  What do you think about celebrating  our Hard Core Crafters from around the world together today & get crafty at the same time? AND do it ONE challenge?  Any ideas as to how we might do that?  I would keep reading if you wan to win THIS:


Here’s another hint from designer Suzanna Lee?  Hmmm….well I definitely see some Core’dinations…..the world…a plane…some embossing and sanding….


Another hint? This time from designer Tracy Gruber….I see the United States….sanding….


Okay….I guess we can let you know now! :)  Our challenge is to create a card that has to do with the World. Since it is World CardMaking Day, we want to celebrate all the papercrafters from all over the world coming together for this amazing hobby!

So…the challenge? Create a card using Core’dinations cardstock (must be visible) that focuses on the World theme. Use your imagination ….our first few examples take the challenge pretty literally but the rest of our design team created some examples, too. They are so creative and really went with the world/travel theme. And don’t forget to SAND!

LOVING Kate Nolan-Denham’s version of using the whole world!  She used her Silhouette Cameo  and used the negative image of the globe…how cool is that?


AND we have a bonus for you! This card from designer Mary Pat Siehl has a video! CLICK ON THE IMAGE AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL TO VIEW. Her videos are GREAT! She takes you through the process to make this card step by step.


And loving this interpretation from designer Debbie Standard…yep! Hot Air Balloons work as well!

Picture or Video 4043

And Designer Vivian Keh has a super cool idea…she used her Sizzix embossing folder that is all about travel. See the plane  and the post card images?  Yep…that works, too !


And how FUN is this card from Designer Jill Lebbin???? FUN STUFF!


And Ava Gavloski stamped her sentiment about sailing….you can sail around the world, right?


      So..what do you need to do?  Let’s recap:   1.) Create a card using Core’dinations Cardstock.   2.) It must follow the theme of the world…traveling…visiting….across the miles…flying…be creative!   3.) Sand and use technique on  your Core card   4.) Link up using Mr Linky by Monday, October 7th at Noon EST.   5.) HAVE FUN!
