Have you seen September’s Core Colour Challenge???
CLICK here for more details if you didn’t
Well, we have some more inspiration for you!!!
Today Design Team Member Char Dobson made this super fun and just perfect project for Back to School for us today. This is so fun and just perfect for a teacher gift.
And Char’s Tuesday tip is to not be afraid to pair those gorgeous primary colors with an accent color like purple. How awesome is this color combo??? Char used our September Colour Lover’s piece as her inspiration for this layout. You don’t have to use every color…just pick and choose the ones that work for YOU!
Core: Essentials (brights), Core tags (brights)
Other supplies: Cuttlebug Measure by Measure and Number Collage embossing folders, Scor-pal, Cricut Plantin Schoolbook (stars), unknown button brads, buttons, hemp cord, alphabet beads, pop dots, pencils, sticky notes
First up we want to remind you today is THE LAST day to get those Peachy Keen entries in for our July Colour Challenge!!!
Today we are sharing a bunch of cards from the Design Team that are all about summer!

This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team. For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves. We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!
First up is Lecia Forrest. Here is a little bit about Lecia in her own words:
I have been creative and passionate about art since I was able to hold a crayon. Constantly drawing on walls and signing my little sisters name to the artwork, I’ve embraced all the creativeness that scrapbooking brings. I first discovered it when I started traveling all over the world and realized I wanted to remember my experiences forever. Then I married the man of my dreams, and we had 2 boys (Riley:7, Jager:5) and a little girl (Ireland: almost 3). Now you will find me embracing the life of a mommy while still teaching locally and traveling internationally teaching scrapbooking and altered art classes where you are sure to have a good time laughing and learning. I have been published in U.S. & Canadian magazines, international websites and blogs. I have also worked on design/educator teams for many of the industry’s leading manufacturers. Currently I am an endorsed educator for Tattered Angels, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L ,Vintage Street Market, Urban Swank and Core’dinations.
Check out the cool details Lecia did with the doilies! And the black accents on the edge of the cut out, shaped Basic Grey Core Impressions and My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions! Mixing and matching Core is SO much FUN!
Next up is Lydia Jackson. Here is a little bit about Lydia in her own words:
My name is Lydia Jackson and I live on the beautiful west coast of Canada, I am a SAHM, with two little boys who are my whole world. I am married to an adoring husband, who loves me, keeps me grounded and supports my addiction to paper. I love life and all it’s imperfections, and I live by and struggle with my motto, believe and anything is possible. I have been formally scrapbooking for 11 years, but I have been a crafter my whole life. I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Core-dinations design team, for me, it is a dream come true.
Check out that embossing over the photo! So cool Lydia!!!
It sure is!
We are looking forward to the weekend here, are you???
Today we have a fabulous find from our very own Design Team Member Andrea Amu! Andrea is a whiz on the Cricut and you can see that on this double page layout featuring Core Essentials. Here are the cartridges she used:
Paper Lace cartridge (floral lace background); Lyrical Letters cartridge (birdhouse); Cindy Loo cartridge (font letters); Straight From the Nestcartridge (heart flourish).
Here are the individual pages. Check out how Andrea used the negative image from the large, floral, lace background on the first page. Such a great idea and a great way to use every inch of that Core!
Have a GREAT weekend!!!
Charlotte created THE cutest monsters! Aren’t these guys adorable? They are colorful, full of texture and down right festive! Char used her Cricut and the Mini Monster cartridge to create these little guys. Next, she ran them through her Cuttlebug with various embossing folders to create the cool textures. Just add a little sanding and some googley eyes and you have the perfect project for Halloween. (P.S. Make sure you scroll down for our Facebook contest we announced today)
Here they are individually. SO CUTE!
TRICK OR TREAT!!!!
AND MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT OUR FACEBOOK PAGE! WE ARE DOING A HUUUUUUUGE GIVE-A-WAY FOR HALLOWEEN.
Did someone Say Summer?
I know, I know! But we have a FABULOUS Friday find today and it comes from Amy Crockett and it is so great we needed to show you even though it’s October
The detail on this card is amazing! Amy used the Ebony and Ivory collection with the Core’essentials and Whitewash cardstock. And she used her Cricut machine to die cut with the Core’dinations cardstock.
Thanks so much Amy! Remember to send us your creations and you may see your project on the blog!
