When we look out at our crafting community, it’s hard to imagine that pretty much everyone has been touched by Breast Cancer in one way or another.

Design Team Member Char Dobson created this card for us today to remember those who have fought and are fighting today. Please take a moment and reach out to someone you love today!


Core Cards, Core Tags
Other supplies: Cricut Pink Journey cartridge, Tim Holtz Floral Frames embossing folder, Rachel Bright Ornate Swirls embossing folder
Also…just a quick reminder to save the date!!!!!!!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Day TWO!

Today we are here with Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char’s Tueseday tip for you is all about  the CD pocket. They are acid free and archival safe so perfect for any project.  And self-adhesive so just peal off the back!

Yes…we are in LOVE with these! I love the sentiment that Char uses…wonder what is on that CD?

And the other side:

Other supplies:  Bella Blvd stickers, May Arts ribbon, Ranger Distress ink
And Char created a card for us today, too. Love how Char combines purple with the natural jute and burlap flower from May Arts.
Notice the metal embellishments, too?  You need some GREAT adhesive for these kinds of embellishments, especially on a card that will be open and closed. That is why we love our Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L power tape.
Char’s next Tuesday  Tip is …..don’t be afraid to emboss those Core Cards!  Just emboss the front by sliding it in to your folder. They are perfectly sized A2 Cards that will fit right in your standard embossing folders like this one from Provocraft.
Other Core’dinations used : Kraft CoreCut & Emboss

There is nothing better than 6×6 paper pads. We just love them here at Core and even have some in our Spotted Collection now!

Well, if you are familiar with Authentique, than you know that with each line they create….there is a 6×6 paper pad that cardmakers just LOVE!  So today we used those paper pads from the Carefree Collection and paired with them with some Core on some cards. Our design team did a gorgeous job!!! Check out all that embossing….{sigh!} All the patterns look so great together. Did you know that we have Core Cards that make card making even EASIER?  Boxed sets of pre folded cards with envelopes!!!

AND the premade sentiments that come with Authentiques collections are perfect to just put on a card and go! When you are done don’t forget to check out their blog for more inspiration!
