Spring Break, Easter..

That is what these gorgeous pottery pieces remind me of. And our team has chosen this as their Colour Inspiration piece for the month of April.

First up we have a layout from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson.  Lydia used some BasicGrey Core Impressions and Cosmo Cricket Core impressions with some Core Essentials. It looks awesome with all of that October Afternoon, don’t you think?

And do you see the yellow tag?!  We are in love with tags here at Core!  This one is from the pastels collection of the Core Tags series. You will LOVE them and they each come with a gorgeous, metal grommet….same GREAT Core’dinations Cardstock just in a tag.

Lydia used this Pinterest inspired photo found here on our Colour Lover’s board.

Edited: For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s. Sorry for the confusion but we are not offering a prize for this challenge at this time due to our GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY going on right now. It’s HUGE…a value of over $700!!!!

And onto the Wall!

Yes, you heard us right…today we have a fun project for you that takes Core’dinations off the page and will help you stay organized. It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?

Design Team Member Char Dobson created this wipe board using  loads of Core, including one of my favorites, the Cosmo Cricket neutrals collection pack. The teal in this collection is such a gorgeous color and you can never have too many circles!

Don’t forget your Sand It Gadget to get that perfect sanded look.  We hope you are inspired to take your Core off the page!

What a great way to stay organized AND it looks awesome, too!

Monday, Monday!

WE are a bit early posting this but we thought since some people may be off due to the Holidays that you could get a jump start for January!

All entries are due by January 31st either link to this post or posted on Facebook. Please note:  due to CHA falling at this time, we may be delayed in posting a winner until the 2nd week in February.

Are you on Pinterest?  Make sure you follow us if you are. We loooooooooove pinning! :)

Today’s layout is from Designer Ellen Sosnoski. I used Vintage Cardstock and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions for this layout and lots of layering! Love love to layer as much Core as I possibly can!

The little hearts are a Cuttlbug die…I use this one all the time! And the flower is cut from some May Arts ribbon.

Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on  your project. Cards, layouts…anything will do just make sure you use some Core and you know how we love techniques ;)

Due by January 31st, 2012 link to THIS post or on our Facebook page.

Tuesday Tip From Melissa Oliveira

We have some fun tips from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Even though these layouts have a summer theme to them doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips for any project.

First up Melissa stamped on her Whitewash for this journaling. If you have used our cardstock before, you know it gets a bit dusty  when you sand it. First up, you really should have a Sand it Gadget to make your sanding easy. After that, you want to use our Dust Buddy.

The Dust Buddy is a unique cloth that does many things, including cleaning the sanding residue so your adhesives can stick better. One additional thing it does is make your stamped images crisper and cleaner as seen on Melissa’s layout here. If you sanded this Whitewash and didn’t use a Dust Buddy,  the stamped imaged wouldn’t be as great.  So make sure you tell your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock retailer to get some Dust Buddies. They go a long way, too!

And here is another example of a layout where Melissa stamped over some Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And of course, how cool are those torn waves in the Whitewash????
