There are a lot of High School graduations going on right now and Kate Nolan Denham has a great layout to share with us today using school colors. With such a variety of different colors and kinds of cardstock to choose from, Core’dinations Cardstock can be your go to paper for any occasion!
On this layout, Kate does a great job working around that issue we always find when using Core and embossing folders….”how do I only use a 5×7″ folder on a 12″ layout?” She balances it perfectly with a 5×7″ photo and then, of course, sands!
here today with a graduation layout that sports school colors from Core’dinations Vintage Collection. It is one of my favorite collections!
I did a lot of sanding with my Sand It Gadget. I wanted the color core to really pop on the edges of the mats where I embossed and scored. It allowed me to add dimension without having to add more layers.
You can see how awesome the Core’dinations Color Core looks in this up close photo!

I don’t know about you but we are gearing up for the end of school here. With only less then two weeks left, I need to get busy on some gifts for my kid’s teachers and we hope you have been enjoying the ideas so far this week! You can easily incorporate these with layouts, cards or any paper crafting project.
I love a good gift bag and Debbie Standard as one for us today but that’s not the focal point. She created her own award ribbon using some Spellbinders Scalloped Circle dies! Just die cut them with an embossing machine and then cut them into pieces. Sand and then adhere them in a circular pattern, add some banner strips and you are done!

Today we have some gorgeous layouts from Debbie Standard!
We had a beautiful day for my mother’s 87th birthday and afterwards while the girls were still dressed up we went around the corner from my house and had them pose in this beautiful field of blue bonnets (Texas is known for their state flower)! My granddaughter was patient with me up to a point and then she spontaneously burst into some random poses – these were my favorite!
2. Use blue from the Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress collection
and emboss it with a Spellbinder’s embossing folder. It is of course too wide to run through the embossing machine so I cut my paper in two and embossed each sheet and then attached them together.
3. I matted my photos with white and then added pink behind my photo strip. I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and then sanded them before adhering.
4. I cut my flower and my title from my Silhouette ran the title through my Xyron machine and attached it. Totally loved how these colors came out and reflected everything in my photos.

We celebrated my mother’s 87th birthday recently and had her kids, some of her grand kids and great grand kids there. Even with just a partial group there were 16!. She was thrilled! When the restaurant realized who we were singing too they all joined in. She was so cute, I had to document it!
1. Sand the BasicGrey Core Impressions and adhere together with Washi tape.
2. Then I cut and matted my photos on a sheet of white and then backed it with a bright blue and attached it.
3. Next, I cut my title and my balloons from a Silhouette die, ran them through my Xyron 250, sanded them lightly and adhered them to my page.
6. Add some Queens & Co. twine for balloon strings.

Before we give you all the goods PLEASE check out both companies on Pinterest and follow them for endless inspiration!
First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!
Fall is my favorite time of the year. I think is is the beautiful rich colors that are all around! Core and Authentique are such a great pairing becuse of the beautful textures and colors that both companies have. For today I made a fall layout with the new collection from Authentique and I paired it up with some Core Amour and Core Impressions Jillibean Soup. The colors really mixed well and the texture it provided just made the layout!

Twine and Ribbon- May Arts
Next how about a mini album all about Tradition
from Ava Gavloski. SO MANY amazing details on this gorgeous project!
Authentique is one of my favorite pattern paper companies. They have quality weight paper with a vintage feel to their pattern’s and color tones.
Add some Clearsnap ink for the edges of the pages and this album has a great look. Heat set the May Arts ribbon and the album has a vintage feel.
You can see the beauty of the Core’dinations inner core with each page being embossed and sanded. The Authentique pattern papers match perfectly with Core’dinations cardstock.
This Authentic Tradition collection is truly a complete collection to allow for a finished album without the need to purchase additional supplies.
The Authentique sticker elements embellished the album by bring back memories of our Christmas Eve Celebration.
Notice on the red banner how you can make your own design by placing the cardstock over any textured surface and sand to reveal the pattern and inner core color.

First up a very fun and festive card…but keep scrolling down…there’s a great layout, too!
I love to find new techniques to use with my Core! For this card, I used a Studio Calico mask and put it behind my piece of Core card stock. I then sanded with the Sand It Gadget until the design started to show. Pretty cool, huh? Then, I cut some stars and then added the white shape with the Paper Smooches sentiment. Next up some May Arts ribbon and Imaginisce Glam Rocks finish off this card perfeclty!

The best part about scrapping with Core’dinations card stock is the ability to use different techniques to create unique layouts. On the dark pink base, I simply used the Sand It Gadget to sand three different areas for a distress look. It adds a different element to your layout that is really easy to do! I then used a piece of light pink Spotted Tillie Dot and sanded it to make the polka dots “pop.” The last technique I used was crumpling up a piece of White Wash card stock, flattening it out, and then sanding it. This allows the Sand It Gadget to hit the creased spots and the background color to show through.
