Hi Everyone! Ellen here today with a Father’s Day card I made…well two of them. And they are very different! I was inspired this week by two different things.
First up, I was working with some Couture Creations dies and after my cut I realized unfortunately that my sandwich was wrong. So it didn’t cut all the way through. That happens to me from time to time and I just put them in my recycle bin. WEll not this this time! I thought…I can do something with that…and I did! You have to check out their Doily dies..they are AWESOME! And versatile….
There was no way I could cut this with craft knife because it was too detailed so I grabbed my Sand it Gadget and I sanded and sanded and sanded a bit more and the “etched” image created starts to pop off the card. It’s subtle but I think it works AND I saved some scraps
Aly Dosdal from the WRMK Design Team originally did the video so I had to try it out because I just KNEW that Core w0uld be awesome with this tutorial. I used Core Essentials for the shirt, Chocolate Box for the tie and background and a David Tutera Celebrate card for the base. I cannot get enough of these square cards! For the original video check out the WRMK blog .
I gotta tell you…I did it on the FIRST try so it wasn’t that hard. You will need your Scor-Pal or scoring tool of some sort.
And here is the inside of the card. You can open it up and put something in there.

Let’s say howdy to Jennifer Edwardson!
Hey everyone, i’m Jennifer Edwardson and like most, I began scrapbooking shortly after the birth of my daughter in 2000 and never looked back. I’ve been creative my whole life and loved back to school shopping the most….all the paper and crayons and color – love, love loved it !!
Shortly after my 2nd child was born …. (like REALLY shortly – he was just 9 mos. old – CRAZY !!!) …. I decided it’d be cool to open a business, so I did…….and have had my own successful LSS since 2006.
I am so fortunate to get to do what I love every day …… I have extensive instruction and design experience that has allowed me to travel and share my passion with many. My work has been featured on manufacturers blogs as a Guest Designer, i’ve created projects for CHA, have been a member of the Bella Blvd. Design Team for the past 2 years, am on the David Tutera Celebrate Design Team, am an American Crafts Certified Instructor and now cannot wait to share my creativity with you during my time on the new Core’dinations Design Team (yep – super EXCITED !!)
When I am not running the day to day operations of my business or designing a fun new workshop, you can find me spending time with my husband, Scott, children Emma and Alex, our 2 crazy puppies and our horses on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada !!

I go completely bonkers about nature and the garden, hence my nickname on various social media platforms – Contadina K. The pooches and I are happiest when we are hangin’ out in the garden. And when inspiration in the craft studio lags, all I need to do is step out back and stroll around.
This year on the Design Team, I’m looking forward to working with even more of the beautiful hues and rich textures of Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. Nothing would make me happier than being able to inspire you along the way!

Today we are introducing Heather Kaesgen!
My name is Heather Kaesgen; I am a proud stay at home mom of 2 boys Parker (13) & Hayden (8). They keep me very busy with all of their activities. You can find us at a baseball field 6 nights a week from April – August. Thank God I love baseball! I have been married almost 15 years to the greatest husband and father I could have ever of wished for. I am very blessed to be able to stay at home and play in my craft room daily. I am always making something. Whether it is for a party, a card, for the house or scrapbooking, I always have a project in the works. My passion is scrapbooking; there is nothing more precious than to see your family on a beautifully decorated page. We LOVE to travel as a family. We spent 3 weeks in Europe last summer – can you imagine those pictures!? My favorite place in the world is Paris (and the Outer Banks and Disney and Out West, get it LOVE to travel). We are starting a lofty goal of visiting every Major League Ballpark, all 32 of them, in the next 5 years! Did I mention we LOVE baseball. I can’t wait to start that scrapbook!
And about Heather’s layout…she is passionate about traveling so that is what she created for you today! A layout about her travels:
