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!

Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion ( http://everydayisanoccasion.com/) here to share a really cute baby shower gift . This gift is for the person that has everything already…. or perhaps someone who is having their second, third or fourth baby! Babysitting coupons are ALWAYS appreciated, take it from a mom with two little ones right now!
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!
I 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.

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.
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.
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.
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!
