Today is Thanksgiving in Canada and we want to wish all of you an amazing day!
We are so thankful here at Core’dinations for so many reasons.
We had such an awesome week last week with Glue Arts!
Between the Glue ARts blog and the wonderful projects here at the Core blog you had to come away with some inspiration. You must have GREAT cardstock AND awesome adhesive for your crafting projects. If you missed last week, don’t worry. Go to our main site, www.coredinations.com and then click on “Scrapbook Projects” and then you will see “2,4,6,8 Core’dinate”. There you will see all of our preferred partners, including Glue Arts, and the projects that we have created.
Today our Design Team Member Char Dobson created this layout in celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving using Core’dinations and, of course… GLUE ARTS. We just couldn’t stop! Char also used some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions and Black Magic.
There are so many great details on this layout and so many things to be thankful for.
AND NOW FOR OUR GLUE ARTS WINNER!

We have an awesome tutorial for you today from Design Team Member April Derrick.
Let’s get started!
Step 1 – To create the background for my layout, I started by gathering the following supplies: Ranger Distress Inks in Weathered Wood and Broken China, two Ranger Foam Applicator Tools, Core’dinations Sand it Gadget , and of course a beautiful sheet of Core’dinations Core Impression Cardstock. The particular sheet I used was from the Jenni Bowlin Studio Collection: Vintage Brights!
Step 2 – I started by applying some of the Weathered Wood Distress Ink along the bottom of the cardstock.
Step 3 – Next I added a layer of Broken China Distress Ink and I made sure to blend the two colors together where they meet so it would having a flowing effect.
Step 4 – I continued to apply the Broken China distress ink all the way up to the top of the cardstock, however I didn’t apply as much towards the top because I wanted to make sure that some of the whitewash coat and stunning red core would show through! This picture shows a close up of how the colors blended beautifully.
Step 5 – I grabbed my Core’dinations Sand it Gadget and started distressing away! I sanded various areas of the cardstock making sure to leave a few un-sanded patches to add visual interest!
Step 6 – I also sanded along the edges of the cardstock to help create a beautiful red border. You can see what my completed layout background looked like before I began adding embellishments.
Step 7 – I completed the layout by adding pictures I had created in a free online photo editor, and various patterned papers & embellishments!
