Ellen here with some Core’dinations tips for you using Black Magic and Chocolate Box collections.

We love these two lines so much AND after seeing everyone at CHA loving them, too, we thought it would be fun to share a layout using both collections.

Scoring, sanding, and embossing are SO much fun! Who needs patterned paper?

Tutorial Tuesday

Today’s Tuesday’s Tutorial comes from Lydia Jackson. Ever wonder how to use your Cuttlebug Embossing folders for a border on a layout? Keep reading…

NOTE: Remember to work from the BACK of the Core’dinations Cardstock because you will be sanding on the front of the paper.

Using a rolling pin and firm pressure, roll over the folder to create the embossed image.

Turn the cardstock over and sand:

Here is the finished layout. Isn’t that border fantastic? NOTE: Notice how Lydia overlapped the corners so you don’t have to worry about them lining up exactly. It adds to the whimsical feel of this adorable layout!

Supplies: Core’dinations Core Essentials, Cuttlebug folders from Provocraft.

Wishing everyone a Wonderful, Happy and Safe Holiday Season!!!

We have arrived to the big day and Paula Gilarde is sharing a little bit about herself with us on this very special day…

1. What is your most treasured Holiday memory? Growing up in Ireland the day after Christmas is an even bigger celebration than Christmas itself. It’s called the Wren’s Day and people used to dress up in crazy costumes and go around from house to house entertaining people, kind of like Halloween but with wackier costumes and less candy

2. Do you have any special Holiday traditions that are unique to you and your family? We celebrate with my husbands family on Christmas Eve – it’s a large gathering with 15 kids and ends up being a lot of fun. I don’t know that we have any traditions that are unique to us but we do have a few things that we like to do every year for Christmas – go look at lights, have breakfast with Santa, bake cookies, decorate the tree etc – all the usual things.

3. What kind of {scrapbooking} projects are you creating this year for this Holiday Season? I made a mini-album of photos and out-takes from my Christmas card photo shoot for the first 5 years. It was a lot of fun to put together.
