Today we have a special treat from

Any guesses what today’s Technique is? Going once……going twice….Yup, you guessed it! SCORING! The possibilities are endless when it comes to scoring and Core.

That is why todays winner will also receive the Ultimate Tool from Crafter’s Companion in addition to the Core Goodies! PLEASE make sure you head over to their Facebook Page and tell them how much you appreciate their support of the 12 Days of Techniques!  They also have a YouTUBE page with some really great videos. Once you sign in, you can subscribe via email to get notified when they load new videos.    BUT first you need to watch the Scoring Video here leave us a comment below.  This is a video you don’t want to miss… there are some awesome ideas!  We would love to hear what you will create with the Ultimate Tool from Crafter’s Companion and I am sure they would, too so tell them on their Facebook page ;)

Today’s project comes from Mindy Ayers using the Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Tool to create the box itself and the embossed lines on the tag.  The pre-embossed Cardstok for the box is  Core Impressions Jenni Bowlin Vintage Brights and some Core Essentials for the tag.

Check out this close-up. Mindy cut the letters right from the Jenni Bowlin Alpha Cardstock! I know I have said this 1000x’s before but Core’dinations is so versatile!!!

AND Mindy has one more example for us today. Check out how these ornaments are hanging on this card! Yup, you guess it…she scored the lines in the black magic and then sanded them. C-L-E-V-E-R!

Now we are ready for a WINNER!!!

I can never distress too much. LOVE all things distressed. It is my go to technique. That is why I LOVE Core’dinations. The paper is such high quality (and still reasonably priced) that I know it will withstand whatever I throw at it. Combine Core’dinations with Tim Holtz and I am in heaven!!

LaRayne (yesterday’s winner) make sure you get us your address by clicking the contact button here.

SEE YOU TOMORROW!!!!!  We have another give-a-way from a sponsor you have already seen during the 12 Days of Techniques!!!

I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.

I live in the country and like to use torn paper to represent the fields and hills. I’m glad I found your paper because with other paper I would use ink to hide the white core and it never looks right.

Lisa, we are happy you found and us and cannot wait to see what you create with your Core’dinations and Fiskars goodies. No covering up that inner core anymore!!!  Make sure you email us with your information!

Come Back tomorrow for more winners and another BIG give-a-way!!! You won’t want to miss this one. Don’t forget to watch the Embossing Video here leave us a comment and tell us what your FAVORITE line of Core’dinations is to emboss!

tis the season for great techniques !! keep up the great work & hope to carry on thru the next 11 days ! woooot

If you missed us yesterday, that’s okay. You can still check out the post here on sanding and don’t forget to check out the video.

Now on to day TWO of our 12 Days of Techniques.  Next up we have tearing.  Check out the video on tearing here and it gives you a sneak on what you might win today in addition to the Core give-a-way. Whether you are a novice scrapbooker or been scrapping for years, tearing does not get old ’round here!    Lydia Jackson is up today with a fabulous layout showcasing how you can create your own embellishments with tearing. Isn’t it snow clever how she creates circles with tearing? And the Whitewash Cardstock is perfect for your wintery layouts. The white surface and color core are the perfect way to accent those fun snow pictures.  Just a great way to showcase how tearing doesn’t have to be in a straight line. Lydia also combined other blue cardstock from the Core Essentials line–don’t be afraid to mix and match the Core’dinations lines, they core’dinate beautifully!

So, for today, leave a comment telling us what unique ways you can use tearing on your projects and you could win some Core’dinations Cardstock, our Dust Buddy and Sand It Gadget, AND …yes I said AND…. a Tearing Ruler from FISKARS! (The image below is an example and not may not be the exact ruler winner will receive)

Please make  sure you give a big shout out to Fiskars on their Facebook page and tell them you appreciate their support for our 12 Days of Techniques because you may be seeing them again this week ;)

And don’t forget to give us a shout our on our Facebook Page. We love to hear from over there and it is a great way for you show us what you’ve been creating with Core’dinations. You might find your project on our blog during our Fabulous Friday Finds where we showcase projects using Core from the scrapbooking community.

All prizes will be shipped the week of December 27th.
