Welcome to the Core Tip of the Month! If you are here then you are receiving our BRAND NEW Hard Core Crafter newseltter! We hope you are enjoying it so far. Not on the list? Sign up HERE !
This month we want to share some tips with you about designing our Core Tags. We love, love them here at Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. They come in a variety of sizes and colors to match our Pastels, Brights and Darks collection packs, not to mention individual packs of all white. They have a great texture, a metal grommet and you will find they are great for journaling, adding titles and much, much more!
For more tips on tearing Core’dinations Cardstock, make sure you check out our Technique videos HERE.
And a close-up of that detail:
But keep in mind you don’t always need to tear them…you can just stack your tags on your layouts for journaling, too. April Derrick did just this and added some doodling to her tags to personalize them a bit, too! The white tags are perfect for this…
Make sure you check them out in Pastels and Darks, too!

We are starting things off with returning Designer and Core lover Debbie Standard. Debbie has been with Core’dinations for years and knows and love this cardstock. She has an eye for mixing and matching our different cardstock collections and every time she creates something I say, “I don’t know how she does it all!”
Make sure you visit her blog HERE for more Gorgeous creations!
My name is Debbie Standard and I live north of San Antonio, Texas. I have been scrapping for about 15 years now. I have been a Critical Care Nurse for 18 years. I work part time in a Level one Trauma Center in San Antonio. I am also a mother to four, three daughters and a son. Between my husband and myself we have a total of six children, eleven grandchildren and one great-greatchild (by his oldest granddaughter), two cats. I love scrapping – it’s my therapy. I have been published in several magazines and can’t say I have ever gotten over the thrill of seeing my work posted in magazines, blogs and facebook. I have met some wonderful people through design teams and boards. I am so excited to be a part of Core’dinations Design Team. I have been part of this team since 2009 and have loved every minute. This cardstock is such an exciting product and I am so looking forward with working with this impressive group of Design Team members!
Here is Debbie’s layout. I loved learning something new about Debbie..she loves to Kayak! How cool is that???
