Today Linda Beeson shares a few simple steps to create this beautiful box that is perfect for your special Mother’s Day gifts.

All you need is some Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions Core’dinations Cardstock, adhesive and a scoring tool and you can create this gorgeous project, too. One of the reasons we love Core’dinations is that is a sturdy cardstock that will stand up to scoring and projects such as this.

For more information on scoring, please use this link and check out our videos.

Linda started with a 5″ square and scored 1″ lines on each side.

After scoring, cut on the scored lines on both sides and adhere:

VOILA! You have a gorgeous gift box:

The Great thing about using Core Impressions is that the cardstock is embossed and ready to go!

Add some crinkled flowers and a brad for some beautiful finishing touches.

What could be better than Spring? Today we have a few projects from our Design Team that celebrate the joys of being outdoors as we enjoy this beautiful weather.

But before we get started….just a friendly reminder that….


First up we have the cutest layout from Design Team Member Heather Bowser. From the clouds to the stitched raindrops…it doesn’t get much cuter than this!   And it’s ALL cardstock! Heather mixed and matched FOUR different kinds of Core:  Core Couture, Pearls, Core Essentials, and Stacy Julian Core Impressions on this layout.

And next up is a layout from Design Team Member Kandis Smith using Core Essentials and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.

How great does that stamp look on the Core Impressions woodgrain?

It’s a Colorful Wednesday!

Here on the Core blog! We are celebrating brown and blue today! This color has really turned into somewhat of a classic these days and can be a go to color combination for any occasion.  Check out these two very different themed layouts from our Design Team using the same color combo.

Kicking it Old School

Good Morning!  We hope everyone had a great weekend! It’s Monday and we are ready to go for another week of fun!

But before we get started, we wanted to send out a huge congrats Congrats to all of our winners of the Core Impressions and Tim/Holtz Ranger contests!  The winners have been notified. We appreciate your support and response to the give-a-way and look forward to more of these soon!

Today we are kicking it on school here at Core’dinations. What does that mean exactly? That means we are using some pre CHA 2011 products for you today. Our Design Team is busy working on their new goodies but we still love some of those older releases that have become staples in our scrapbooking supplies.

First us is a Cosmo Cricket  and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions layout from Kim Moreno. Aren’t these colors gorgeous???

Looks gorgeous anchored with some Core Essentials as the layout base.

And a double page layout from Ellen Sosnoski using some Jillibean Soup Core Impressions and Core Essentials.

And how about some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions from Paula Gilarde. I know this is a Christmas layout but since it snowed here today, I figured that was okay 😉

We’d love to see your “old school” layouts! Make sure you link us up or email them to ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com.

For some Chocolate?  Chocolate Box that is….

Today we are sharing some layouts from our Design Team featuring our Chocolate Box line.

Firs up is a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Debbie used Chocolate Box as the base of her layout here.  Debbie used Chocolate Box with a blue core and sanded the scored frame to accent the blues throughout the layout.  Also note on both of these layouts the hearts at the bottom of the page!

Other Supplies used: Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, Core Essentials Cardstocks.

This layout is from Design Team Member Cari Locken.  Brown looks GREAT with everything! The colors on this layout are gorgeous…blues…reds…greens and Cari anchors this layout with some Vintage cardstock as the base and uses the Mint Chocolate Chip Chocolate Box to accent the green. Remember: all of our lines Core’dinate! So the green in the Core of the Chocolate box core’dinates perfectly with the green from the Core Essentials. Isn’t that great? Makes matching colors for your project so easy.

Other Supplies used: myStampBOX stamps; Stacy Julian Core Impressions (red) and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.

Mixing it up….

Happy Thursday everyone. Today’s post is about mixing our Core Impressions lines with patterned paper. The great thing about these paper packs is that they are cardstock yet they can work just like patterned paper.

For instance, this layout by Design Team Member Kandis Smith. Notice how she uses the Damask print from the Graphic 45 Timeless Core Impressions line.  She paired with some October Afternoon papers that have a completely different pattern. And check out that little strip of Gemstone. Perfect!

Also on this layout from our preferred partners: Queen & Co. Gemstones and Maya Road Chipboard.

And here is card from Kandis using the Stacy Julian Core Impressions dot cardstock. Who needs patterned paper when you’ve got this collection in your stash? Paired with the Graphic 45 tags and some Core Essentials, you’ve got a match made in heaven.

And one last example from Kandis. Check out this layout with the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions against the graphic prints!  And of course that cute smile doesn’t hurt 😉 We would love to see how you used your Core Impressions!!! Make sure you link us up on our Facebook page or in the comments here.

Have a GREAT week!
