First up just a reminder that our DESIGN TEAM CALL is going on NOW! You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to be able to create with Core’dinations all day, every day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We hope you had a GREAT weekend and a fun St. Patrick’s Day! Beleive it or not we got FOUR inches of snow here yesterday! So the kids were home early and we had one last snow day, hopefully, boefore the first day of spring this week!

Speaking of Spring….when I think of Spring, Easter is one of the things that pops into my head.

Designer Shaunte Wadley created this for us today celebrating a classic Easter delicatessen, PEEPS! AND she used hers scraps. TOO CUTE!

Here is how she did it:
Jillian Dot Cardstock for the card base
Gemstone Cardstock for the  Peeps and flower
May Arts ribbon, Queen & Co. Washi Tape (for those cute pin flags again!), Bunny is Lifestyle Crafts die.

St Patty’s Day layout featuring Tim Holtz Shattered Cardstock

So how about a St. Patricks’ Day layout featuring Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Cardstock.

This entire layout is  Shattered cardstock except for: the Core Tags (journaling) Glitter Silk (Shamrocks, title) Core Couture (pennants).  Loving that scoring detail around the edges?  Break out your Scor-Pal. It’s easy and looks GREAT!  Remember to Scor from the back and sand the front for that great detail.

Shaunte used gold ink and rubbed it into the lighter shade of the Shattered cardstock. This detail shot shows the gold color it turned the cardstock, and seeped down into the cracks. I sprayed it with glitter spray too. Never too much bling, right?!!? And love how Shaunte makes these flags with the Queen & Co. washi!!!!

LOVE IT! Hope this inspires you to scrap those St Patty’s day layouts!

All you need is some Vintage Core’dinations, Glitter Silk Cardstock , Gemstones and an old frame and you have all you need to make your very own Shadow Box!

Andrea die cut the hearts for flowers from her Cricut, added some Queen & Co. pearls,  and wrapped the stems in twine. Backing the title is a GREAT way to make it pop, too!   Layer bits and pieces of the project to added depth. This is a great way to create your very own home decor for any holiday or season!

And GUESS what???!?!?!?!!?

OUR DESIGN TEAM CALL IS POSTED HERE!

CHECK OUT! You don’t want to miss the opportunity to design with the BEST cardstock!



Tim Holtz Shattered as is…

We have been talking about our BRAN NEW Tim Holtz KRaft-Core Shattered line a lot lately and today Designer Melissa Oliveira has a super sweet layout for you. And she uses the No. 1 for her background. Make sure you check out the detail shots so you can get the idea of how great this cardstock looks up close.

So, even though inking it and embossing it is a lot of fun, you can still use it as your go to cardstock for backgrounds in lieu of patterned paper.

Some products from our partners:  Lifestyle crafts: embossing folders (for banners beside photo) and doily die cut (to the left of photo),petaloo: paper flowers, Queen& Co: pearls and  Fiskars: paper crimper and border punches

Happy Monday!

Core’dinations Cardstock!

Today we have some layouts for you featuring our very fun shiney and sparkley collections….Glitter Silk and Gemstones ! Two of my FAVES! Who am I kidding?  All Core’dinations cardstock is my favorite! 🙂

These first TWO layouts are with our 6×6 paper pads! Cardmakers and scrapbookers will love these lines. Our same great cardstock just sized smaller for mini albums and cards.

How about a Glitter Silk layout from Shaunte Wadley…Shaunte used her Lifestyle Crafts die cuts for all the hearts.  This cardstock cuts beautifully!!!

A Gemstones layout by Andrea Amu. Andrea embossed the Gemstones and then inked it…Looks cool!

And another Gemstone layout  from Shaunte but this time in the 12×12:

Keep in mind these two lines do NOT have a sandable  finish.
