We had a busy one going through the DT applications!!! We are here going through them diligently so we should have some news for you SOON! No later than next week. We appreciate your patience…with so many applications we want to make sure they each get the time and attention they deserve.
Have you seen our new 6×6 packs?! They will be shipping in September so make sure you ask your favorite retailer to get them in stock!
I was going through some images this weekend to plan for the blog this week and came across this layout from Design Team member Char Dobson. Check out the guitar and how she used the metal studs on it! How cool is that?
Just love this Teresa Collins Core Amour Line…it is TOO perfect for all those awesome boy layouts! The Core is BLUE!

And they have a GrEaT Facebook page, too, make sure you head over there as well for daily inspiration.

Today we have a Thanksgiving Day wreath from Designer Ellen Sosnoski.
There are only a few easy steps for this easy project. First, wrap burlap (from MME) around a wooden base. I am using an old “O” that I bought to alter for my son’s room. The intention was for us to do it together but he didn’t find it as exciting as I did so we are using it for a Fall Wreath today with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core and Sizzix dies.
You may need to play with it a bit to make sure the end is on the back. Use your Glue Arts Square Adhesives to attach. They worked perfectly!
I used about the Adhesive Squares to attached the leaves…
And a close up of the leaves. They were embossed, then spritzed with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and then sanded. To get them to stand up, I used the 3D UCut it squares.
We cannot wait to see what you create with Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock and Glue Arts!
Thank you Thank you for a fantastic week. Please make sure you stop over at Glue Arts and give them a big shout out.
Come back Monday for some Canadian Thanksgiving ideas and some winners!
This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team. For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves. We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!
First up is Andrea Amu. Here is a little bit about Andrea in her own words:
Hello! My name is Andrea Amu and I am born and raised in Pennsylvania where I live with my fun-loving hubby of nearly 11 years. Scrapbooking has been one of my biggest obsessions since 1997 and most recently I’ve seemed to catch a card making bug too! When I’m not busy being crafty, I can also be found working part-time as a substitute Preschool teacher. I find enjoyment in shopping at craft and antique/junque shops, and collecting Old World stoneware and unique pieces of silver and gemstone jewelry. Currently, I am also serving my third year as a designer for CreativeXpress.com and I’ve been fortunate to have had my designs published in Memory Makers publications, Northridge Publishing Media’s CARDS and Cricut magazines, Paper Crafts, The Bug magazine, Pinecone Press, and Blue Media and Quarry books. I am really excited to now be a part of the Core’dinations Design Team and I look forward to many inspirational experiences along the way! Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here.
Love the Teresa Collins Core Amour on here and how Andrea printed her photo directly on the Core.
And next we have April Derrick. Here is a little bit about April in her own words:
My name is April Derrick and I am a Stay-At-Home Mother and Scrapbook Artist. I live in Arkansas, with my husband Scott, my daughter Charlie, and my sons Memphis and Castor. I have a love for all things crafty, and a passion for designing scrapbook layouts & mixed media art. I love to paint, draw, & distress…anything where I can get my hands messy! Documenting my memories in an artful way is extremely important to me and I always strive to inspire others whenever I can. I enjoy teaching others new techniques and I have been fortunate enough to host an annual scrapbooking /art retreat for the last six years on Petit Jean Mountain. I’m addicted to my camera, my scrap tunes, my sewing machine, all of my art mediums, and of course Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. In my opinion, Core’dinations Cardstock just plain rocks and I am honored to be part of the Design Team! Check out her gallery here at Core and her personal blog here. April has a way with inks and mists for sure!!! Looks fabulous on some Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain.
And it is!!!
We are currently gathering all the layouts for our FIRST ever challenge here at the blog. THANK YOU SO MUCH for all of the AMAZING entries. You guys are the BEST! We will announce the winner Monday.
