Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.
We have a WOW of a Wednesday for you today from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. How many diffferent embossed patterns can you get on a layout?
Now I count SIX on this layout. Now actually it could be SEVEN because Debbie’s flowers are embossed, too! Oh no, EIGHT because she has two different kinds of embossed flowers from her Spellbinder’s dies. Now..here is the catch?!?!?! Think you can do more?!?! Well, let’s see if you can!
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO GET AS MANY EMBOSSED PATTERNS ON LAYOUT AS YOU CAN! You have until the end of this month, March 31st, to link your layout to THIS blog post or on our Facebook page. You must use Core’dinations cardstock on your project. It can be any kind…you can emboss it yourself or use our Core Impression lines so the sky is the limit!
Before we get started today we have a quick update on the Northrige winners. They have been picked and emails will go out shortly! So stay close to your inbox and we will post names soon, too.
Today we have a layout from Designer Debbie Standard featuring some Core Amour. Sand the white wash and the black core comes through…it’s so cool! Debbie accented it with blues and yellows from the Spotted Collection. Love that pop of color, don’t you?
And how about pairing that Spotted Cardstock with some Fancy Pants Core Impressions? Mixing and matching our different collections is so much fun! Add some of your own embossing like Debbie did here with the Whitewash strip and who needs patterned paper?
We are here with Helmar this week and couldn’t be more excited! We have partnered with them previously and it has been great so we hope you enjoy yourself this week and stick around Sit back with your cup of coffee and be ready to be inspired.

And, of course…check in over at the Helmar Blog for more inspiration.
Today we have some gorgeous designs from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. For this first layout, Debbie adds pops of colors against the black Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And you need great adhesive to adhere that May Arts ribbon down, don’t you? Well grab that Helmar Quickfix adhesive tape runner ..it’s the perfect size for ribbon! And the 450 Helmar Quick Dry adhesive works really well for those little bits like the green flowers Debbie cut using her Spellbinders dies. You can dab some of the Quick dry on and you are good to go..and fast! No drying time needed
I know Halloween was last week but we just had to share this fun layout with you using some of the newly released Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. These are so fun!!!!!!! Pre-embossed sheets for all your favorite Holidays. Seriously..did I say how fun these are? It’s like magic when you start sanding and all the color starts to come through.
Remember to use that Dust Buddy after you sand so that adhesive sticks better.
Ready for some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions?
Today Design Team Member Debbie Standard created this fun layout that is all about Trick-or-Treating! How much do you love the purple???

And Just in case you were curious…Black Magic isn’t just for Halloween! You can use it on your day-to-day cards as well. And Debbie added some May Arts Ribbon on this card traditionally used for Halloween projects, too. Dies are Spellbinders.

Today we have some cards for you!
Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this FUN window card. Is it ever possible to have too much woodgrain? I didn’t think so. She used the Sizzix Tim Holtz woodgrain folder for the embossing and then the woodgrain Sweet Stamp Shop stamped on the inside of the card.
And close up of the flowers. Melissa used a Spellbinder’s Label die to create the window.
And the inside:
And Design Team Member Debbie Standard created this cute card! She used the back of her cardstock for the bus and all that fun embossing and sanding is just perfect! Don’t forget to run that “grass” through your Fiskars Paper crimper for that perfect look…add a Petaloo flower and you have a perfect Back To School card!
