Great inspiration for using great product lines.
Before we get started with today’s inspiration…..I wanted to point something out. Did you know we have a Hot Topics section?
We post projects here that we don’t put on the blog or Facebook including our Core Teachers series! So make sure you check that part of our website out, too!
So today is all about our Vintage Cardstock. Seriously, our Vintage Cardstock is gorgeous…gorgeous. It is unlike any other cardstock!
Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley is up again with a gorgeous project for you today.
After seeing this layout I can’t imagine you not running to your local retailer asking for some of this! And the stars add the perfect touch of glam for this rockstar, don’t you think? Shaunte used our Core Couture cardstock for them. Perfect!
Dies used in this layout are from Lifestyle Crafts.
Today’s FABULOUS Friday Find comes from Maggie Lamarre. The details on this layout are amazing and
it is just perfect for Mother’s Day this weekend!
Here is a little bit about this layout from Maggie in her own words,
As we get ready to celebrate this Mother’s day, I wanted to create a layout of the favorite places my daughter and I love to hang out together. Until this day most of our mother/daughter getaways involve spending time at a theme park or enjoying the many attractions available here in Florida.
I’m Maggie from PassionatelyArtistic.com, I wanted to share a simple way to incorporate glitter very easily into your projects by using Core’dinations Core Couture cardstock. There is no mess… just beautiful glittered cardstock, the best part is the glitter stays in place with no worries about wandering glitter. (We SO agree, Maggie!)
Core’dinations Couture Cardstock and Black Magic Cardstock
Well we have a solution for you! XYRON adhesive! Nothing’s falling out of this basket with this great adhesive.

For this super cute Easter project, Design Team Member Hera Frei used her Xyron Mounting tape, Core Couture Cardstock (the eggs) and NEW Pearls cardstock (card base). Perfect for all of your Easter projects!
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!! WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOUR EASTER PROJECTS.

It’s Glitter Silk! Have you seen our NEW Glitter Silk paper that debuted at CHA this winter? It is awesome!!! If you haven’t asked your favorite retailer to get, you should!
It is smooth like silk….meaning it cuts like butter. NO tearing in your paper trimmer, NO destroying your favorite scissors. Smooth as SILK!
AND it looks gorgeous paired with our other shimmery paper lines like Gemstones and Core Couture as seen in this layout by Design Team Member Heather Bowser. Notice she cut hers with a die cut machine?
Preferred Partner Supplies: Spellbinders, Sizzix and Fiskars.
Have a GREAT week!
Did you know we have THREE different kinds of glitter cardstock? Didn’t know? Already love it? Either way…. make sure you keep reading!
First up on this wonderful day is our Tuesday Tip and this week’s project comes from Paula Gilarde. This gorgeous layout was featuring in the CHA booth this year in the section featuring all of our Glittery Cardstock, this layout more specifically the Core Couture line.
Here are some of our tips when working with our Core Couture Cardstock:
1.) Don’t Shy away from Color! Mix and match your colors so they really play with each other and enhance your photos.
2.) Use a neutral to anchor your layout. Notice how Paula anchors her photos and uses the white Core Couture Cardstock as a focal point.
3.) You can emboss it and tear it…the possibilities are endless! Paula used her Fiskars Paper Crimper for the corrugated blue strip. For more tips on paper crimping make sure you check out the video here.
4.) Use the backside to journal. Even though you might think every white is the same, it’s not. You want to make sure your white’s match too, so flip it over to the non-textured side to journal, ensuring the colors “core’dinate”.
Now make sure you head over to the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog! Our very own Sarah Hodgkinson is over there with a fun tutorial and a card featuring some Core’dinations Here is a sneak of some of that fabulous Core Impressions:
