Well, we have some more inspiration for you!!!
Today Design Team Member Char Dobson made this super fun and just perfect project for Back to School for us today. This is so fun and just perfect for a teacher gift.
And Char’s Tuesday tip is to not be afraid to pair those gorgeous primary colors with an accent color like purple. How awesome is this color combo??? Char used our September Colour Lover’s piece as her inspiration for this layout. You don’t have to use every color…just pick and choose the ones that work for YOU!
Core: Essentials (brights), Core tags (brights)
Other supplies: Cuttlebug Measure by Measure and Number Collage embossing folders, Scor-pal, Cricut Plantin Schoolbook (stars), unknown button brads, buttons, hemp cord, alphabet beads, pop dots, pencils, sticky notes
Today’s Tutorial is from Design Team Member Kim Jefress…..

MY COLOUR BOOK
My two year old son is having trouble remembering his colours. I decided to make a mini album for him using some Core’dinations cardstock, embossing folders and chipboard.
1.Choose a pre made mini album, measure the size of each page and then cut your CORE cardstock in your chosen colours to size. Mark with a pencil where the holes are and using a hole punch, punch some holes for the rings to thread through.
2. From the same sheets of coloured cardstock, cut pieces to fit into embossing folders you have, then emboss each coloured card with a different folder.
3.Using your sand it tool or sand paper, sand the embossed design on each piece of embossed cardstock.
4.Cover your album with PVA glue or craft glue and lay down your cardstock pieces from step 1. Smooth out with your fingers.
5. Now glue down your co ordinating embossed pieces the same way.
6. Choose some chipboard pieces and decorate each one to suit the colours of your pages. I have used, glimmer mist, paint, glitter and ink.
7. Using strong adhesive glue the chipboard onto each page, Type or write out a matching sentence for each colour, print trim and add to each page.
8. Use buttons and letter stickers to create your cover and then put your book together and you are done!
Here are some of the inside pages….GORGEOUS!!!!
And here are Kim’s cuties looking at this amazing book!

Now it is time to live with September’s Colour Challenge!!!
It is all about colour for sure.
Again, our inspiration piece comes from our Pinterest Colour Lover’s Board. Every Month Design Team Member Lydia Jackson gets the incredibly difficult task of choosing one of the beautiful color schemes found in Pinterest.
This month it is all about back to school!
What is better than rainbow crayons???
Our Core Essentials line is PERFECT for this challenge. LOADS AND LOADS of gorgeous colours…..
Design Team Member Debbie Standard Created this fun card using this colour inspiration using loads of embossing and sanding:
AND…Debbie created a layout, too.
The great thing about this inspiration piece is that you don’t have to use every single colour like Debbie did here. She focused on the blue, red, yellow, orange and brown. Looks awesome, don’t you agree? The Stacy Julian Line Core Impressions is great for this challenge as well. No one does Colour like Stacy!
Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on your project and link back to THIS post by September 30th or link us up on our Facebook page.
So the blog has not been cooperating with me this weekend.
I spend most of Saturday morning copying and pasting and reposting
but nothing worked.
So we have ONE MORE CHEERY LYNN project for you! You may have seen this on
Facebook over the weekend but that is okay. It is too cute not to share with you today.
And what a perfect way to announce the random winner of our give-a-way from last week………….
Krista’s Paper Cafe says:
I think it looks more antique then grungy. I like it. I want to try. Now i know what to use a white/off white Core’dinations paper for.
Congrats!!! Email email@example.com your address information.
Now let’s see this layout…..
Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this super cute layout using the French Scallped Flair nesting dies. She used the smallest size and then cut it to create the fun green border along the photo. BRILLIANT! And of course that fun banner.
