YES! I said Winner(s)!

We couldn’t pick just one so we picked TWO!!!

First up is Irit Shalom. Irit submitted two fabulous entries with some fun journaling and cool techniques and here they are:

Some awesome Basic Grey Core Impressions on this layout. Love it paired with all of the vertical strips of cardstock and ribbon. AND, yes! We would love to go to that Cherry Festival! Sounds amazing.

Love love all the Jillibean Soup Core Impressions on this layout and how Irit sanded the “18” with the Core Impressions. And those layered journaling spots are the best!

And Sherry Coogan submitted this layout where she etched in the embossed woodgrain on the Chocolate Box like a REAL Tree!!!!

Such a cool idea!!!

Make sure you check out how Sherry mixed handwriting with tiny alphas for her journaling.

Thank you thank you so much for all the entries!!! We will be doing challenges every month so stay tuned for the 1st of July for details for the July challenge.

This week we are celebrating Fathers and Family here on the blog!

We are kicking it off with two layouts from Debbie Standard. Debbie packs her layouts FULL of  amazing details so grab your coffee and be ready to get inspired!

For this first layout, Debbie sanded a sheet of My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions.  It looks beautiful with the bright blue embossed Core Essentials.  And check out the fun details from the 4×6″ mini My Mind’s Eye collection pack!  They go perfectly together. And of course those fun photos of the kids playing around  with their Dad. They just make you smile!

Next up, Debbie shares with us another layout about family. For this layout Debbie scored her Whitewash background . Such an easy and quick way to make your own background!

The flowers are stamped. All you need to do is turn your Core’dinations over and stamp on the backside for a nice, smooth finish.

AND…yes, there is more!  Debbie printed her clouds from her computer using a digital image directly on some Whitewash and the sanded.

We are! Here are some Fabulous Friday Finds from the Design Team to get you inspired and create this weekend!

WE love using our Core Essentials, it’s pretty much a go to for any project we use. Is it an essential in your scrap booking stash???

Yipee! The sun is out and has been for a few days. It is still cold here on the East Coast but there are some signs of Spring (even though we did get snow this week). I was just over at Design Team Member Linda Beeson‘s blog the other week and saw this gorgeous photo!   If you have never been to her blog, you should. Not only does Linda have gorgeous Core’dinations creations but she has beautiful photos as well.

And she has  funny cards 😉  Check out the beautiful Gemstones cardstock on this card, too, it looks fabulous embossed!

Here is a  card with a Beautiful Color combo that is fresh and bright, just perfect for Spring using some Core’dinations Core Essentials and gorgeous papers from one of our preferred partners, Imaginisce, from Design Team Member Cari Locken:

And Kim Moreno used FRESH and NEW some NEW Jillibean Soup! Isn’t it delicious with Core’dinations???

Have a GREAT weekend!
