Today we have some gorgeous projects for you! Let’s Start off with a Layout from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. So many gorgeous gorgeous details! Shaunte used loads of Graphic 45 products and anchored the layout beautifully with some Core Impression in the Black Magic. Hand cutting that Graphic 45 paper is TOO much fun! Don’t be afraid to use metal accents on your layouts like Shaunte did here with the flowers from the Graphic 45 Staples.
Next up we have a mini album from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson. Lydia created this mini as a gift for a friend. What better way to share the Graphic 45 love than with the most important people in our lives? It is the perfect way to preserve those memories.
There is that cool Door Knob from the Graphic 45 Staples collection. And the Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless Collection is, well, TIMELESS! It goes with so many different colors and we just love how Lydia paired it with the blue.

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program? We sure do! We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers. How easy is that???
And some close-ups. Add some Petaloo flowers and May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous project. Andrea also used a piece of Tillie Spotted Core’dinations behind the frame. For the floss-like fibers used in the button ties, Andrea pulled apart the May Arts cording… discarded the white fiber-fill from the inside and just used the flossy threads. COOL!
And one more…
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.

And a close-up. Check out this awesome, awesome detail.
And Designer Kim Jefress made this adorable card for us today, too.
Here is a little bit about how Kim put this card together. From start to finish it is just gorgeous. AND don’t forget….Glue Arts is PERFECT for any project…cards…layouts..mini albums…ANY crafting project. The base of the card and to attach the pattern paper I used the GLUE GLIDER PRO. To give the hot air balloon a lift and to create dimension on my card I used the U CUT IT 3d adhesive block. The colors are just beautiful, too. LOVE the balloon in the Vintage cardstock, don’t you?
The U Cut It Foam adhesives give the perfect dimension to this card.

Good Morning! And Happy Father’s Day week here at the Core blog! We are celebrating family here this week and today Kim Jeffress is sharing a fun and easy tip for you. AND it is her first time on the Core’dinations blog, too!
For this layout Kim used the full sheet of a Jenni Bowlin’ 4×6 calendar cardstock sheet from the mini collection on her layout. These mini cardstock pads are so perfect for layouts and if you are a Jenni Bowling fan, you will love these. They have the Jenni Bowlin Studios signature calendar and bingo designs that will core’dinate with all of her gorgeous products and patterned papers as you can see on Kim’s layout.
Each pack consists of four embossed patterns in five colors totally 20 unique sheets in the 4×6″ size.
It looks great with the Black Magic cardstock, doesn’t it?!?! And look at that sweet, sweet photo….
And a detail shot of that sanding. Don’t be afraid to layer your embellishments and even your journaling like Kim did for her layout here. A GREAT IDEA for our journaling challenge!!!! If you didn’t see it, check it out here!
We are celebrating color again today with one of the most classic color combinations: Black, White and Red. And it just so happens that some of our lines are just perfect for this combo!
For this layout Kim tore the edge of each of the “frames” used around the photos and sanded the Core Impressions cardstock to reveal the stars. She also used her Scor-Pal to score the lines across the bottom and top,then punched and sanded a border to adhere below the ribbon. Remember to check out our videos here for more information on scoring.
And if you love Black and White you have to check out our NEW Jenni BowlinCore Amour collection. You are going to love this line!!! And if you take a hard look at this card from Design Team Member Debbie Standard, you may be able to figure out who we are doing our next blog swap with next month.
