All entries are due by January 31st either link to this post or posted on Facebook. Please note:  due to CHA falling at this time, we may be delayed in posting a winner until the 2nd week in February.

Are you on Pinterest?  Make sure you follow us if you are. We loooooooooove pinning! :)

Today’s layout is from Designer Ellen Sosnoski. I used Vintage Cardstock and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions for this layout and lots of layering! Love love to layer as much Core as I possibly can!

The little hearts are a Cuttlbug die…I use this one all the time! And the flower is cut from some May Arts ribbon.

Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on  your project. Cards, layouts…anything will do just make sure you use some Core and you know how we love techniques ;)

Today is our last day with Graphic 45 but that doesn’t mean that you won’t see more Graphic goodness here in the future. Don’t forget that we have one of these awesome packs for grabs, too! Our Signature Series Cardstock...it’s FabUlous! In the past we have teamed up with Graphic 45 for our Core Impressions and this past summer we debuted the Signature Series. Now you can get the gorgeous Graphic 45 designs on our cardstock AND their “signature” colors! So if you have loads of Graphic 45 sitting at home waiting to be used, this pack of cardstock will match perfectly.

AND of course we are giving one away here!!! Make sure you head over to the Graphic 45 Blog for more chances to win!

AND we always do a little something over on our Facebook page, too, so make sure you check in there often. Graphic 45 has a Facebook page so make sure you go over there and tell them how much you looooove them :):):)

We have some amazing altered pieces for you today.

First up is an album AND matching frame set from Design Team Member Char Dobson. LOVE how these ladies worked the metal door plates from Graphic 45 Staples collection!!!! LOOK at all that Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless collection! We love how our Cardstock looks with shine so Char used some Maya Mist …looks gorgeous, don’t you think?

{Sigh} Paris!

Here are some details on the album. The album is Graphic 45. These premade Policy Envelopes from the Staples collection make creating minis so easy!!!! Char used Glue Arts and Helmar Adhesives to help create this gorgeous mini,too.

AND a printer’s tray with Designer April Derrick. The details are amazing.

Some details…

April die cut out the treasures title using  the Graphic 45 Signature Series cardstock and then applied glossy accents to the top so when it dried it has a 3-d effect.

Them April took the metal flowers from Graphic 45 Staples collection and ran them through the Cuttlebug and embossed them, then painted them with some Tattered Angels silver metallic glimmer glaze!  And add some Petaloo flowers. Love them in black.

We have a super cool layout for you from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira to start off today.

Melissa sanded the clocks from the Graphic 45 Timeless collection and then inked them in a “core”dinating color, just looks awesome and makes those clocks really pop, don’t you think?

Melissa colored in the clock hands with a black zig milennium pen then added a thin layer of glossy accents and allowed it to dry to make them  really shine.

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous layout.

Next up Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this gorgeous box and mini album for a future trip to Paris! A girl can dream, right??!?!  That is the beauty about the Graphic 45 papers. They take you to another place with their gorgeous Parisian themes and images of fairy tales and all things beautiful.

Tuesday Tutorial from Kim Jeffress

Do you remember as a child creating those little concertina folded friends? Well today we would love to share a project on how to make them using some CORE Essentials and some scraps of pattern papers from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress.

Step 1 Take a sheet of 12×12 Core Essentials cardstock and cut a strip off about 3 inches wide. Concertina fold it (back and forth) so you have four flaps, draw a person on one flap making sure the arms of the person are touching the fold line (this will keep the attached). Cut out around the edge of the drawn image.

Step 2 Unfold your cutout and using a sanding block or sand paper distress the edges of your little friends.

Step 3 Create a dress template from scrap card and then choose 4 co ordinating pattern paper scraps and trace around the dress template on the back of the pattern paper. Cut out.

Step 4 Ink around the dress to add some definition.

Step 5 Glue your dress to each body on your friends and embellish each different using buttons, pearls, lace and bows.

And here they are all dressed up! Add some buttons…flowers and trim and you have the cutest project!

Kim used our October Color Challenge for this project. Still time to enter!!!

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.

It’s June 1st. Let’s kick of this month with a fun CHALLENGE!

What do you think?

We just loved this technique that Melissa Oliveira shared with us yesterday on the blog that we wanted to extend the invitation to try it to YOU!

Journaling is such an important part of a scrapbookers journey to preserve memories and tell stories.

SO for this challenge….we want to see your Journaling. It doesn’t have to be this specific technique…you can journal any way you choose.

But  for this challenge there are a few things you must do:

1) JOURNAL

2.) Use Core’dinations Cardstock (it must be a visible component of the layout).

3.)  Link your project to THIS blog post or post it on our Facebook page. Make sure you “like” us, too!

4.) Show off a cool Core technique and we will throw in an additional chance to win!

The rest is up to you!

And how could I forget??? Of Course a random Winner will win some CORE’DINATIONS CARDSTOCK!

Here is a layout from Melissa Oliveira to get you inspired on the many ways you can journal on your Core.  The possibilities are endless and we can’t wait to see what you can do! For this layout she sanded where she journaled AND scored her journal lines. Brilliant!!!

Deadline for this challenge is two weeks…June 15th by midnight PST.

Core’dinations used: Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions, Basic Grey Core Impressions Ornate collection, Core Essentials.

And a close-up!
