Happy Friday!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today we have a gorgeous layout from Design Team Member Andrea Amu featuring some mixing and matching of our Core Impressions lines.  That is one of the coolest things about our cardstock. You can mix and match it making endless combinations!

For example: Andrea used some Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions (dot) with some Jenni Bowlin Brights Core Impression (butterflies).

Sand (of course!) and add some of your favorite embellishments and Voila!

You have a gorgeous layout like this:

Inspiration!!!

We posted our July Peach Keen Colour Challenge this week so make sure you read all about it here. There is some yummy Core’dinations Cardstock up for grabs!

Here is the palette:

And the inspiration piece:

First up is a layout from Debbie Standard.  Debbie embossed the images and then cut them out as accents on her page.  And how perfect is that wave punch?!?!?!  Make sure you check out that great scoring detail Debbie added to do her journaling.

Today we have a card AND some gift wrapping from Char Dobson.

AND it gets BETTER!

Char had started off just making the card, but then had the great idea to wrap my gift in butcher paper and embellish with the scraps leftover from making my card. It turned out super cute! A nice change from using a traditional gift bag.

Core is so versatile!

Core’dinations: Core Essentials, Chocolate Box, Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.  Other Supplies: Cricut Nursery Rhymes, Martha Stewart Flower Punch, Fiskars Corner Round Punch, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

Have a GREAT week!

Introducing….

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team.  For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves.  We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!

First up is Debbie Standard.  Here is a little bit about Debbie in her own words:

My name is Debbie Standard and I have been scrapping for about 10 years now. I have been a Critical Care Nurse for 16 years. I am now employed as head of the Trauma Case Managers at a Level 1 Trauma Center. I work full time and still put in about 5 hours a week charging in the Trauma Intensive Care Unit. 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), three cats. I love scrapping – it’s my therapy. Once I started submitting for publishing I’ve been addicted. So much fun to see what I have created in a magazine – I never get over the thrill! I have been published in several magazines and am on several card DTs as well as Core’dinations.  I have met some wonderful people through design teams and boards. I am so excited to be a part of Core’dinations Design Team for another year. This cardstock is such an exciting product and I am so looking forward with working with this impressive group of Design Team members!

Next up is Kim Jeffress.  Here is a little bit about Kim in her own words:

Hi my name is Kim Jeffress and I hail from beautiful sunny Brisbane Australia. I started my creative journey into scrapbooking about 8 years ago when I met my husband, then boyfriend, who worked out of town and I needed something to keep me busy during the week. A former kindergarten teacher now SAHM, my biggest inspiration for my scrapping are my two active little boys. I like to scrap the good and the not so good aspects of their little lives…the things that they say and do, and the little everyday things that I don’t want to forget. I am very fortunate to be on the design team for Australian Scrapbooking Memories magazine as well as several online shops and manufacturers so I get to work with many different products. I love the feel of embossed, roughed up or textured cardstock as it adds a fabulous rustic feel to my boys pages. I would describe my style as clean, fresh and vibrant with a touch of whimsy! I am soooo very excited to be joining the fabulous team at CORE!!

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team.  For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves.  We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!

First up for today is Brianne Neville.  Here is a little bit about Brianne in her own words:

My name is Brianne Nevill and I live in the beautiful pacific northwestern state of Washington. Our military home is bursting at the seams with myself, my handsome and VERY understanding husband, our adorable son, a dog, two cats, and sometimes a fish or two. Born and raised in MI, I never dreamed that I would follow love around the country and end up finding a passion in sharing our family adventures with paper and glue. In the past six years of scrapbooking, I have had the privilege of working for some fabulous teams in the industry, my work appear in multiple publications, and am now honored to be a part of the Core’dinations family!

How much do you love Black Magic??? Brianne really core’dinates her colors here and it just pops off that white Core Essentials cardstock!

Next up for today is Char Dobson.  Here is a little bit about Char in her own words:

Hey there! I’m Char from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada! I am a wife, mother and avid paper crafter. By day I work as an Educational Assistant in the public school system. At night, after my kiddos are tucked into bed, you can find me creating cards, layouts and all types of crafty projects. I consider paper crafting to be my creative playground. In fact, one of the reasons why I love Core’dinations so much is the play factor. They are always coming out with a new line or I am trying a new technique. I am honored and thrilled to be part of the fabulous design team at Core’dinations!

Love the pop of blue on this layout by Char.

And a little bit about this layout:

Besides Core Essentials, the Jenni Bowlin Red & Black was the first Core Impression paper pack I had bought for myself. I love the blacks and creams, and of course that beautiful deep red! It is one of my favorites and I go back to it often. I chose to use this line for my ‘All ABout Me’ layout because I love the colours and romantic textures. The paper is just so pretty, it did a lot of the work for me! Just a little sanding made this cardstock really shine. It was the perfect choice to compliment the black & white photos I chose of myself, and to support my creative philosophy: inspire.dream.create.

Happy Monday!

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team.  For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves.  We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!

First up is Andrea Amu.  Here is a little bit about Andrea in her own words:

Hello! My name is Andrea Amu and I am born and raised in Pennsylvania where I live with my fun-loving hubby of nearly 11 years. Scrapbooking has been one of my biggest obsessions since 1997 and most recently I’ve seemed to catch a card making bug too! When I’m not busy being crafty, I can also be found working part-time as a substitute Preschool teacher. I find enjoyment in shopping at craft and antique/junque shops, and collecting Old World stoneware and unique pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. Currently, I am also serving my third year as a designer for CreativeXpress.com and I’ve been fortunate to have had my designs published in Memory Makers publications, Northridge Publishing Media’s CARDS and Cricut magazines, Paper Crafts, The Bug magazine, Pinecone Press, and Blue Media and Quarry books. I am really excited to now be a part of the Core’dinations Design Team and I look forward to many inspirational experiences along the way!  Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here.

Love the Teresa Collins Core Amour on here and how Andrea printed her photo directly on the Core.

And next we have April Derrick. Here is a little bit about April in her own words:

My name is April Derrick and I am a Stay-At-Home Mother and Scrapbook Artist. I live in Arkansas, with my husband Scott, my daughter Charlie, and my sons Memphis and Castor. I have a love for all things crafty, and a passion for designing scrapbook layouts & mixed media art. I love to paint, draw, & distress…anything where I can get my hands messy! Documenting my memories in an artful way is extremely important to me and I always strive to inspire others whenever I can. I enjoy teaching others new techniques and I have been fortunate enough to host an annual scrapbooking /art retreat for the last six years on Petit Jean Mountain. I’m addicted to my camera, my scrap tunes, my sewing machine, all of my art mediums, and of course Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. In my opinion, Core’dinations Cardstock just plain rocks and I am honored to be part of the Design Team! Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here. April has a way with inks and mists for sure!!! Looks fabulous on some Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain.
