Suzanna Lee here and over the months that I have designed for Core’dinations, I have shared with you many of the plus’ of working with Core’dinations cardstock. With the design team call announced (yes, you TOO could design for Core, see more about the call here) you know that this term is winding down for us and I have one last plus to share with you; no matter which manufacturer you put along side Core’dinations, there is always a WIDE assortment of coordinating Core’dinations cardstock to work with.
I have yet to find a company who I can’t coordinate Core’dinations cardstock with. Today we are partnering with Petaloo and just look at how amazing this Graphic 45 Dark’s collection pairs up with the Petaloo flowers! I was sent an assortment of different flowers that I mixed and matched to grow my garden with – a lovely bed of flowers indeed!

Kate Nolan Denham here and this week Core’dinations has paired up with Petaloo to bring you some fantastic back to school projects.  Today I am sharing an altered notebook showcasing Core’dinations Chalk Core and Petaloo Trims and Embossed Daisies.

Notebooks are a must for school, but altered notebooks seem so much more fun! I chose the most school appropriate cardstock, the new Core’dinations Chalk Core Cardstock to create the base of my notebook.

I die-cut a piece of the blue Chalk Core to look like notebook paper, then scored ruled lines using my Scor-Pal and sanded the lines so the blue core was showing. The word “notes” is just the back side of the Chalk Core.  Core Tip: To ensure that your title matches your project, just turn your cardstock over and use the back side!  Then, I added some perfectly matching, layered Petaloo Embossed Daisies.
Don’t you just love how much the white Chalk Core looks just like a school chalkboard!  I used the Outline Technique to make my “I {heart} School.”  Just and over some chipboard and you have a great title. You can find this technique in the Core’dinations Technique Videos.

Multi-Media Summer Canvas

We love the beach and are so spoiled to live only 45 minutes from the ocean.  To me, the ocean is a place of freedom & relaxtion.  The thought of it inspired today’s beach-themed mini canvas created with lots of Core’dinations Cardstock.
To create this 4″ x 4″ mini-canvas:
1) Cut, sand and dust a 3.75″ x 3.75″ piece of Spotted Jillian Aquaduct.  Adhere to the canvas with craft paste .  I used Helmar’s Decoupage.

2) Ink the edges of the canvas and paper with a color that matches the cardstock background. Let the ink dry thoroughly before moving onto next step.  You could even heat set the ink.
3) Place another layer of craft paste over the canvas.  Set aside to dry while doing the next step.
4) Tear, sand and dust three 3.75″ wide pieces of Core’dinations Whitewash Cottage Porch. Layer & glue these pieces onto to the center of the canvas so the tearing is shows on each layer. This creates the beachy waves. Mix craft glue & chucky clear.  Paint this mixture onto the “waves.”
5) Tear, sand and dust one 3.75″ inch piece of Core’dinations Whitewash Grandpa’s Trunk.  Heat emboss a bit of gold embossing glitter to this piece. This gives it a textured beach sand look.   Glue the “beach sand” to the bottom of the canvas, overlapping the waves.

6)  Punch out a starfish from Core’dinations Neutrals.  Sand & Dust starfish before adding a bit of ink along the edges.  Glue onto the right bottom of the canvas.
7)  Add another layer of craft paste over whole canvas (sides included).  Let this try thoroughly.

8) Freehand paint the quote on the canvas using white craft paint.   Paint over the quote with another layer of white to make the quote really pop.
Core Tip: Use Core’dinations Cardstock for any multi-media canvas!  It is the only textured cardstock I have found that will not warp with multiple applications of craft paste, paint, embossing, inks and glues.  
Other Supplies:
Martha Stewart Starfish Punch & Glitter
Helmar Decoupage & Craft Glue
Quick Quote Chalking Ink
