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.
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!
Goooood Wednesday Morning!
We are are here bringing you some Core’dinations and Glue Arts projects again today and all week long!

See the torn/ruffled cardstock? You need a really great adhesive to make sure the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions (pink ) will adhere to that ruffle and Glue Arts is perfect.
