Shaunte is using the London Cling stamp set from Stampendous’s BRAND NEW summer release! For more products you MUST check out their new products here. All week long it is our plan to show you new products!

Pair this fun London stamp set with some gorgeous Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions from the Black and Red collection (that label shape is still an all time favorite of mine!!!) and you have an awesome layout.

Shaunte did something really cool here, too.  She stamped a core’dinating image on some scrap Core and then punched it with her circle punch.

How cool is that?!?!  Adds dimension and some fun detailing of all the gorgeous Stampendous Glitter that we all know and LOVE!

Guest Designer Rebecca Keppel

What a wonderful week we are having here at Core!

We are just FILLED to the brim with fun stuff for you. And today is another great day..we would like LOVE to introduce you to our September Guest Designer Rebecca Keppel. Rebecca has been a long time fan of Core’dinations and we are so happy to have her with us this month!

Here is a little bit about Rebecca:

In the beginning of 2005 I was a corporate attorney in San Francisco, but then my daughter was born and I became a stay at home mom. I started scrapbooking around that time and found the creative outlet a santity saver to say the least! We moved to Arizona and my son was born in 2007. They are the main stars of my scrapbooking show. I love practicing new photography skills on them and then creating layouts with those pictures. I’ve been blogging for about 4 years now and love sharing projects, ideas and photos on my blog. I also enjoy card making and creating mini albums and gifts for friends and family. I generally think of my style as clean with a focus on the photos, but with a definite fun twist. Two of my favorite additions to layouts are machine sewing and typewritten journaling. Since I started scrapbooking, along with my clean style has been a love of cardstock. I never create a project without at least a little of it. When I first discovered Core’dinations I couldn’t believe the dimension it added to my projects–there was nothing basic about cardstock anymore! I am so thrilled to be here as a guest deisgner and want to thank Core’dinations so much for this opportunity.

So how about a layout???

How cool is this idea?!

Rebecca used her Imaginisce distress tool (you know how much we love our Imaginisce here!) and this Sunburst Crafter’s Workshop Template and created this gorgeous sun!   She worked from the front of the Vintage Cardstock because you are distressing it (unlike when we work from the back with scoring).

Wow is this just awesome!

Finish it up with some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, title and a few embellies and you have a fabulous layout!

We will have more amazing layouts from Rebecca later in the month so stay close!

Happy Friday!

YES! Even the Whitewash looks awesome with the Authentique Carefree Collection!!! Love how Kim Jeffress paired it with the Authentique Carefree  elements.

and a close up…loving that black splatter against the Whitewash! Don’t be afraid to get out that Sand It Gadget and really sand that Whitewash to get that color core to come through like Kim did here.

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 :)
