Hello Core’dinations Fans!  Kate here today.  Not sure if you have noticed, but my style is pretty simple and colorful.  Just one of the things I love about Core’dinations Cardstock is the color core.  I love to use simple techniques to showcase the color core making my layouts so very colorful.

For this layout I had initially chosen a neutral pallete, but knew it was missing a pop of color.  I started by pulling in color through alternating layers of cardstock which I paper tore to show the colored core. I loved the pop of yellow from tearing the Black Magic so I found the perfect match of yellow in the Core Essentials Brights Collection and used that as my background paper.

Next time you need a pop of color in your paper project, try tearing your Core’dinations!

And Kim Moreno just uses a touch of tearing on her layout below. She does a great job mixing embossing, tearing, scoring ANd outlining on here. Again…don’t be afraid to check out our technique videos for more ideas!

During the holidays I was finally able to my sisters kids and mine together for a group picture… it wasn’t easy to get them all to smile and look at the camera but I managed to get one good shot in and just love it! I couldn’t wait to print and scrap it!
I used my ScorPal tool to create the embossed lines around the edge of my layout. I like doing this because I feel like it frames my layouts well and I like the look.
I then placed a large chipboard star behind my layout where I wanted it and using my Sand It Gadget sanded over the top of the cardstock to reveal the star image below the cardsock. I trimmed different sized stars from cardstock and embossed and sanded them each and attached to my layout using pop dots to a few of them to give them more dimension. I used the star embossing folder to emboss a strip of gray cardstock and sanded it to reveal the lighter gray core the tore the edge of some green cardstock and made banners of each and adhered to my layout. I added the title to finish my layout.

If you have ever seen any of my projects on here before you know my love for Core’s BRAND NEW 110 lb white cardstock! This is no exception! I used it and ran it through my printer to print this cute tag (Just for You). My printer adores this paper, seriously!

JillCoreTagsJan2I used my Silhouette to make the cover of this coupon booklet. Basically I just typed in the words I wanted, added a heart and cut. I just trimmed off the corners to make it a tag. I used Darice’s pink polka dot washi tape on a separate tag. Then I used foam adhesive to attach the two together.

Then I used Core tags to make 5 days worth of coupons.

I love. Core. tags. They are so sturdy! My faves are the tags with the eyelets though because I like to use them with craft rings.

While the cats away the mice will play!

Designer Layouts with Kim Moreno

Can you belive Christmas is over and in two days it will be 2014?  We thought it would be a cool idea to show you some layouts that focus on important days we celebrated in 2013 today. Kim Moreno has some layouts focusing on her kids and some milestones they celebrated this year. ENJOY!

 

With the rough background in this picture I knew the woodgrain Core Impression paper would be perfect for this layout. I chose the purple and navy to coordinate with the colors from the photo and then purple is their favorite color so I had to add that in there somehow! I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple to focus on this awesome photo of the two of them!
I sanded the background woodgrain paper to bring out the lighter color core of the paper. I then chose border punches that not only cut but had an embossed image as well and sanded them slightly and layered them for a fun look. I used an embossing folder to create the dots on the cut out heart.

EEEEK! I looove this big HUGE star!
This photo of my oldest son at the Texas State 7on7 tournament just pulls at my heart, this was the all seniors photo we took at the end of the tournament. Seriously, how can I have a senior already? He would say he loves this photo because it’s during the summer and he’s allowed to have to super, awesome, manly beard! ha!
I used my trusty Scor Pal (do y’all see a theme to my layouts? they feel naked without a border to me!) to create the lines around the edge of my layout and then sanded the Black Magic to reveal the orange color core. I love this pop of color! I then traced the big star from the orange cardstock and cut and punched the green stars and sanded the edges to give them some character and reveal the color core. I tore the edge of my orange cardstock and the edge of the tag to reveal the colored core as well. Notice printing directly onto the cardstock comes out awesome as well!

Well, yes it has been for a few weeks now but only FIVE days left until Christmas..can you believe it?

Today we have Designer Kim Moreno working some of her Core magic….ENJOY!

I just love the Tillie Dot paper and knew that it would make a cute and quick Christmas card so I went punch happy and put together this card in a snap! I punched 8 stars from the green cardstock and one from the yellow and sanded them each carefully with my Coredinations sanding block and arranged them on the Snowflake cardstock, that I tore along the bottom, in a tree shape. I then added jewels and a sticker to complete my card.

And Debbie Standard has some tags for us today, too! Take a good look at these beauties…there is SO much detail on them! Here is what Debbie has to say when it comes to creating with Core Tags:
I used some of the new smooth tags from Core’dination’s for these Christmas tags.  I started out stamping on my tag, then I used some clear embossing powder and dried it with a Paper Studio Embossing Heat Tool.  Then I played with some mists – using various ones.  Once done I picked some Christmas stamps and stamped my sentiment on them.  I added a May Arts Ribbon to finish them off.

AND we have a layout from Gail Lindner today, too! Such a great layout with a non-traditional feel with the color palette!

Something I look forward to at Christmas is my kids’ visiting and getting their photo taken with Santa. I love the growing collection I have, seeing how fast they are growing up and realizing that next year there will be an extra one in the photo! Eeek!

Recently I scrapped last year’s photo, and wanted to keep to a soft, pastel color scheme.

 

Meeting-Santa

I used only cardstock from the Core’dinations Whitewash collection – I’ve been just a bit obsessed with it lately! But I love the soft colors it gives and how effective just a little bit of sanding is.

You can see in the close up photo below how the edge shows the core color so easily.

Meeting-Santa-cu

For the panel down the bottom of the layout, I used a star punch to layer shapes punched out of the same cardstock. But with that little sand around the edges they really POP!

Now to work on this year’s photo!
