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!

We are!

You know we always love colour around here and last month we have a few posts about Colour Lovers. An awesome place where you can go and create your own personalized colour palettes.

WELL….did you know that Core’dinations has it’s own Pinterest boards, too?   Make sure you follow us here because we are using Pinterest as our focus for our monthly challenges.  It’s ALL about colour here at CORE!

Here is the monthly inpsirational piece pinned here by Lydia Jackson:

Can you say Summer?  Can you say Delicious?  YUM! Lydia has named it Peachy Keen. It just screams summer in every way.


And here is the colour palette Lydia created with Colour Lovers….

And here is Lydia’s take on the challenge:

Lydia sanded, embossed, scored and tore on this layout using Vintage and Core Essentials cardstocks.

What can you do with this colour palette? The rules for our monthly challenge are super simple. You must use this palette as your inspiration (feel free to use the Pinterest photo as well), Core must be recognizable on your project (can be a layout, card, anything paper crafting) and we want to see some technique. You know how we love to see how you work that Core ;)

Link up your projects to this post or our Facebook account by July 27th to win some Core’dinations Cardstock!

What goes great with Valentine’s Day? Chocolate Mocha does! We are gearing up for the big day in February already.

Debbie Standard created this adorable card utilizing some of the very versatile Chocolate Mocha cardstock from the Core Essentials line.

Some subtle sanding and a Cuttlebug embossing folder makes this card wonderful and unique at the same time.
