Happy Thursday!

One quick thing before we get started we want to make sure you head back here tomorrow because we have a give-a-way ready to go for Friday and it lasts all weekend long so make sure you check back tomorrow!


Here on the East Coast it’s been cooooold.  But just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate a little bit of life and color around there! And if you know us here at Core’dinations…we LOVE color.

So let’s start with the primary colors…or at least two of them. Hera Frei created this layout using blue and yellow and a few neutrals.  Core Essentials is the perfect cardstock to use when you are searching for color. And our paper packs make it easy for you! And make sure you check out that totally cool random embossing!   Your Quickutz handles, rolling pins and hammers make it easy for you to do this fun technique.

And a colorful card from Sarah Hodgkinson. On this card Sarah uses color blocking that is really striking and simple. And take notice NO sanding! GASP! yes, we do that around here, too!  Don’t be afraid to use your Core’dinations “as is”. It’s beautiful and effective.

Red, Teal and Yellow make a striking color combination from Melissa Oliveira especially against the black background. AND if you use some Black Magic, you can accent one of the main colors by choosing a “core’dinating” core color with your Black Magic. Melissa created this layout last year but when looking through the gallery, this color combo really jumped out at me.  There are so many great details, too…the stamping with myStampBox stamps, the sanding with the Black Magic under the title in the upper left corner,  the Jenni Bowlin Core Impression title,  the embossing…so fun!


Terrific Tuesday!

Good Morning! Today we want to share some fun creations from the Design Team. It is all about celebrating color for the summer!

First up is Kimber McGray. Don’t you just love the bright pinks and yellows from the Imaginisce goodies against the brown?

And check out the color on this card from Kim Moreno! The reds, greens and oranges are gorgeous and the green Jenni Bowlin Core Impression Cardstock just pops:

And Core’dinations Whitewash just sets of color beautifully as Debbie Standard showcases in her card here full of fun summer images:
