Today Design Team Member Char Dobson has the CUTEST project that is perfect for back to school using Core’dinations Vintage Cardstock and the Cricut Wrap it Up cartridge. See that cute little apple on the side of the container? Char used her Helmar 3D Zapdots to make it “pop”.
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:
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!
This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team. For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves. We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!
First up for today is Brianne Neville. Here is a little bit about Brianne in her own words:
My name is Brianne Nevill and I live in the beautiful pacific northwestern state of Washington. Our military home is bursting at the seams with myself, my handsome and VERY understanding husband, our adorable son, a dog, two cats, and sometimes a fish or two. Born and raised in MI, I never dreamed that I would follow love around the country and end up finding a passion in sharing our family adventures with paper and glue. In the past six years of scrapbooking, I have had the privilege of working for some fabulous teams in the industry, my work appear in multiple publications, and am now honored to be a part of the Core’dinations family!
Next up for today is Char Dobson. Here is a little bit about Char in her own words:
Hey there! I’m Char from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada! I am a wife, mother and avid paper crafter. By day I work as an Educational Assistant in the public school system. At night, after my kiddos are tucked into bed, you can find me creating cards, layouts and all types of crafty projects. I consider paper crafting to be my creative playground. In fact, one of the reasons why I love Core’dinations so much is the play factor. They are always coming out with a new line or I am trying a new technique. I am honored and thrilled to be part of the fabulous design team at Core’dinations!
Love the pop of blue on this layout by Char.
And a little bit about this layout:
