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!

If you like cards you came to the right place, just sayin’! Today we have some gorgeous cards for you from our very talented design team member, . But first… we wanted to say Thank YOU for an awesome week and weekend of Cropping Hard Core style!
We will post winners as SOON as we can. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Seeing Core’dinations in action is always amazing and I learn so much and see so many new things. So stay close!
Now here are Tracy Grubers two CUTE cards. She always stamps beautifully, don’t you think?
There is no question that I love to stamp and color with Copics. The awesome part? I can stamp on my Core Tags and then color them. They are made with a really heavy card stock, which allows you to color and shade your images without the ink bleeding. I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set to make this cute baby card. The background is made with Spotted Jillian Dot and Vintage Core’dinations papers.
The Chocolate Box Collection has some really cool card stock! I love how one side is brown and the other side has a variety of colors that can be revealed when sanded. I used one of this card that was a tan backing to keep with the “animal/jungle” theme. I paper pieced the leaves with green card stock from the Darks paper pad.
Personally, I would ask Debbie Standard. She always creations beautiful layouts that not only showcase Core but they are full of amazing details, beautiful photos and over all well designed elements. What do you say we check out a few?
And don’t forget we are still cropping away! TONS of time to get things done . Check out details Here:
Today Heather Kaesgan created the most AWESOME tablescape for us that is Halloween themed.
