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?

Other Core’dinations used on this layout: Stacy Julian Core Impressions and Core Essentials.

And Glitter Silk is paired with some more Core Couture and Core Essentials on a card by Design Team Member Ellen Sosnoski:

Preferred Partner Supplies: Spellbinders, Sizzix and Fiskars.

Have a GREAT week!

Tuesday’s Tip

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”.

5.) Have fun with it and make sure you share with us how you use your Core’dinations Gemstones, {new} Glitter Silk and Core Couture!

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:
