September’s Color Challenge

Happy Friday!

(edited with last month’s winner)

First up we want to Congratulate Courtney! She is the winner for last month’s Colour Challenge.  Email ellen.sosnoski@coredinations.com with your address information. Prizes will not go out until September 12  due to us being out of the office at an event.

Here is the cute card she made.  Love all the great Cricut work and the glossy accents. A GREAT example of how Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock can be your go to cardstock for any project.

You can see her entry here on her blog.

Now it is time to live with September’s Colour Challenge!!!

It is all about colour for sure.

Again, our inspiration piece comes from our Pinterest Colour Lover’s Board. Every Month Design Team Member Lydia Jackson gets the incredibly difficult task of choosing one of the beautiful color schemes found in Pinterest.

This month it is all  about back to school!

What is better than rainbow crayons???

Our Core Essentials line is PERFECT for this challenge. LOADS AND LOADS of gorgeous colours…..

Design Team Member Debbie Standard Created this fun card using this colour inspiration using loads of embossing and sanding:

AND…Debbie created a layout, too.

The great thing about this inspiration piece is that you don’t have to use every single colour like Debbie did here.  She focused on the blue, red, yellow, orange and brown. Looks awesome, don’t you agree?  The Stacy Julian Line Core Impressions is great for this challenge as well. No one does Colour like Stacy!

Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on your project and link back to THIS post by September 30th or link us up on our Facebook page.

Cheery Lynn..ONE more Day!

So the blog has not been cooperating with me this weekend.

I spend most of Saturday morning copying and pasting and reposting

but nothing worked.

So we have ONE MORE CHEERY LYNN project for you! You may have seen this on

Facebook over the weekend but that is okay. It is too cute not to share with you today.

And what a perfect way to announce the random winner of our give-a-way from last week………….

I think it looks more antique then grungy. I like it. I want to try. Now i know what to use a white/off white Core’dinations paper for.

Congrats!!! Email ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com your address information.

Now let’s see this layout…..

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira created this super cute layout using the French Scallped Flair nesting dies. She used the smallest size and then cut it to create the fun green border along the photo. BRILLIANT! And of course that fun banner.

AND she used our August Colour Challenge as her colour inspiration.

And check out this cuuuuuuutie of a layout!

Are you ready for the Colour Challenge?

We are!

Here is the inspiration piece for this month from Pinterest that Debbie Standard pinned for us from the shepaperie.blogspot.com.

Isn’t it beautiful?

SIX gorgeous colours to play  with…..

Here is Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley’s take on the challenge using

ooodles and oodles of Vintage Cardstock.

For the Colour Lover’s Challenge you must use a noticeable amount of Core’dinations Cardstock

on your project. And since we are technique junkies here…we wanna see some technique, too! Sanding…embossing…sky is the limit!

Link your submission to THIS post or post on our Facebook account by August 30th for a chance to win some fabulous Core’dinations Cardstock!!!

Featuring the Core Colour Challenge from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress.

Kim created this gorgeous layout using this month’s inspiration from our Pinterest Colour Lovers Board.  If you don’t follow us over there, you should. There is TONS of colorful inspiration!

Here is Kim’s Layout. Just love how Kim layered her Core Essentials cardstock. They really pop off the page

with those distressed edges!  How did she do those edges???  Well keep reading….

All you need is a scissor! Yep, that’s it…nothing fancy. Just the  sharp side of your scissor and the edge of your paper.

AND Voila! Instant edge distressing 🙂

And another close up for you…

Apply varying pressure to create these cool tears…

Thanks Kim! Have a great day!
