Make an impression with Core’dinations

….that is with our CORE IMPRESSIONS! Debbie Standard is rocking the layouts for us today. ENJOY!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Creating with the Core Impressions line is SO MUCH fun! For this page I wanted an embossed background in a soft color so I chose a sheet from the Pink Paisley collection as my base which I sanded with my Sand It Gadget and then dusted with my Dust Buddy. Then I just went through my scraps (and yes I keep all reusable Core’dination’s scraps) and picked colors from the basic core colors that went with my photo and background paper.  To tie them all together I used a neutral beige to back each square.  I embossed each square with Darice embossing folders, sanded them and then matted them with the Neutral beige.  I added my title and some embellishments both hand made and pre-made to compete the page. The beautiful girls are my daughter (left) and her bff.

AND another layout from Debbie Standard working that Core Impressions…this time the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain cardstock.  Debbie uses these for her CSI case files. The colors are always amazing!

The cool thing about Core Impressions, in addition to the fact they come embossed, is that you can add layers and layers of sanding and inking and sewing like Debbie did here:

We’re all torn up over Core’dinations!

 Aren’t you? But of course in a good way! Today we have some projects from Designer Vivian Keh. This first card is so cool! It takes paper tearing to an entirely new level. And Vivian mixes and matched all  kinds of Core…some Spotted, Core Essentials and Vintage.

Hello, friends!  Vivian Keh on the Core blog today with a happy card using cardstocks from a number of different Core’dinations collections.  I’ve been having so much fun simply tearing our lovely color core cardstock for fast texture in papercrafted projects!  I tore several strips of Core for the right side of my card and tucked a simple sleeve behind the torn pieces to house a cute die-cut tag which slides out. Just about all the elements were sanded because I am in love the distressed result and how beautifully sanding brings out Core edges and embossing.

And who is ready for a layout?

For my base, I sanded a sheet of this wonderful Coconut Cream Woodgrain cardstock that we carry – I love the organic patterns and the versatile creamy color. For the embellishment, I relied heavily on my beloved paper punches.  The photo was backed with a piece of Core that I dry embossed and then fashioned into an easy folder.  I added a cute tab that I had die cut and embellished with a heart-shaped button. Simple journaling in the bottom left corner, and more detailed journaling hidden inside the folder.
Thanks to my punches, this layout came together quickly, which was very exciting for this typically slowpoke scrapper.

The sun is shining…vacations are happening…AND it’s baseball season!!!

Isn’t this the cutest little guy you’ve ever seen?  Design Team Member Debbie Standard used loads of Bella Blvd goodies on here in addition to some Vintage Core Cardstock (base) and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions (Dots)  and a fabulous Core tag!

And how much do you love that star?  They are so so easy to make. Cut out a star with any kind of diecutting machine or even free hand it. Then turn it over and score from point to point and then sand the front! Remember to always scor from the back so the raised image is on the front to sand. For more tips on scoring check out our videos here.

And make sure you check to see if you are a winner!
