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!

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:
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!
Don’t have a Cuttlebug or embossing machine? DON’T WORRY!
Today Lydia Jackson is going to show you how to create your own distress folder.
For some projects you don’t always want a crisp clean embossed detail. When you want
your edges to fade to nothing, or to blend an embossing folder where the
edges don’t match up, this technique is just what you need.
Notice how the swirls vary in embossed depth?
What you will need is your desired embossing folder, a hammer, sanding block
and hard surface.
Place your paper between your embossing folder, then hammer all over,
hammering lightly around the edges, or theplace you wish it to fade.
Remove from the folder and sand.
Have a great week!
