We normally do our Tutorials on Tuesday BUT in honor of Earth Day we have a really great project from Designer Lydia Jackson using her Core. For this project Lydia used the BRAND NEW Graphic 45 lights collection. The colors of this line are beautiful.

Last week Lydia posted this layout where she printed directly on her cardstock. Once she printed it, she realized that it was too small so it went into the scrap pile.

Hmmm..what to do …what to do?  Well, her to crafty little guys figured it out! Punch it, emboss it and then sand it for the perfect card!

Hanging with Helmar All Week Long!

We are here with Helmar this week and couldn’t be more excited!  We have partnered with them previously and it has been great so we hope you enjoy yourself this week and stick around ;) Sit back with your cup of coffee and be ready to be inspired.

Also, make sure you say “hi” from us over on the Helmar Facebook page AND they have some awesome boards over on Pinterest, too!  And…you know how it goes here… post all week long for a chance to WIN some FAB Core’dinations goodies all for yourself. Comment every day for more chances to win!!! And, of course…check in over at the Helmar Blog for more inspiration.

Today we have some gorgeous designs from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. For this first layout, Debbie adds pops of colors against the black Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And you need great adhesive to adhere that May Arts ribbon down, don’t you?  Well grab that Helmar Quickfix adhesive tape runner ..it’s the perfect size for ribbon! And the 450 Helmar Quick Dry adhesive works really well for those little bits like the green flowers Debbie cut using her Spellbinders dies. You can dab some of the Quick dry on and you are good to go..and fast! No drying time needed ;)

I know Halloween was last week but we just had to share this fun layout with you using some of the  newly released Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. These are so fun!!!!!!!  Pre-embossed sheets for all your favorite Holidays. Seriously..did I say how fun these are? It’s like magic when you start sanding and all the color starts to come through.

Remember to use that Dust Buddy after you sand so that adhesive sticks better.

How much do you love Core Tags?!  We sure do! Each tag comes with a beautiful, sturdy metal grommet and that awesome Core that you know and love!  Char used some of the tags from the Darks collection.  The core’dination perfectly with our Core Essentials Darks collection. Add some May Arts Ribbon and Graphic45 Core Impressions and you have a fabulous layout!

Design Team Member Char Dobson worked that title with some Black Magic Cardstock and her Cricut. LOVE it!

And Melissa Oliveira…the stitching is perfection…and the touch of May Arts ribbon and the Posie Cardstock from Jenni Bowlin is so sweet with this layout!

And Lydia Jackson uses the touch of Graphic45 Core Impressions along with top of this layout…

Check out the awesome details…Lydia used her Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder on this layout and then inked over top of it for a really fabulous distressed feel. The sanded parts of the Core really pick up the inking.  Lydia also used her Spellbinder’s Label Die and printed her journaling directly on it. LOVE the tone on tone…fabulous!  OOOH and some May Arts Ribbon :)
