Good Monday Morning!
Did you scrap your heart out this weekend? We did!
And we have some fun stuff going on!
THERE ARE TWO CHANCES TO WIN CORE GOODIES! Head over to the BasicGrey blog to see how you can WIN TWO BasicGrey Core Impression packs!!!
AND we have our own challenge featuring Core Impressions…the old…the new…just use some Core Impressions on your layout for a chance to win your choice of any of CI packs (subject to availability) !!! Details HERE.
So today..we thought we would show you one of our very FIRST collection packs featuring Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions Classics. Design Team Member Debbie Standard used the Seedlings cardstock and sanded it and distressed the edges to really show off that colored Core. Pair it with your favorite Cosmo Cricket cardstock or use it on its own…it is perfect for any scrapbookers collection.
Layout for you!
Design Team Member Char Dobson created this layout using some Jenni Bowlin Everyday Core Impressions. This Whitewash in Butter Churn has a gorgeous yellow core so Char inked it a bit to bring in some of those cool distress tones to this layout. And don’t forget about those Petaloo Flowers made to match Core perfectly! Check out the Color Matching Series here.

WHO WANTS A WINNER???
Yesterday’s winner of some JBS Black and Cream collection is…..
What a great project idea. I can handle that
one. Like the paper too.
So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways????
Today is all about Tim Holtz Adirondack Cardstock!
Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira worked up some amazing layouts for us today.
And how fun is this? Melissa added a few of her favorite things to this layout, too! If you are familiar with Melissa’s work you will see one of these techniques on almost every layout of hers.
1. ) Sand the area where want to journal (in this case, using the date stamp) so it “pops” off the page.
2.) Loosely and unevenly sanding around the edges of the page to create a distressed/weathered border.
3.) Grey!!! We love grey! And Melissa is obsessed with it.
And Melissa created some double page layouts for us, too!
The great thing about Tim Holtz Adirondack collection is that you don’t have to do grunge and major distressing. It is full of bright colors that are perfect for any project!!!
ONE MORE PROJECT!
Yes, we are not done yet with our Jenni Bowlin Inspiration. Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira made this beautiful mini album using some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions from the Red & Black collection. This is such a versatile collection and should be a staple in every paper crafters supplies. The black and red color combo is a classic.
So many amazing details ….
Just some simple sanding….
Love love the look of the inked edges! The texture of the embossed cardstock really looks amazing.
Such a GREAT idea to use the fun die cut shape as its own page.
Even the back is beautiful!
So are you ready for our Jenni Bowlin Studios winner? We had hundreds of comments…thank you so much! We love hearing your feedback and the Design Team did an amazing job, too!!!
Without further ado…..the random winner is…….

Today Paula Gilarde is sharing a card she created with loads of distressing. Paula used FOUR, yes, FOUR different Core’dinations Lines! Here they are in order from the cardbase: Black Magic (sanded to show the red core), Core Essentials (Notice the Sizzix by Tim Holtz brick embossing folder????) Jenni Bowlin Vintage Core Impressions and Jenni Bowlin Whitewash Core Impressions (Both from the brown and cream line). Paula added some great details to this card including an SRM Sticker.
SO WE NEED A WINNER, RIGHT?????????
LaRayne S says:
I took a class that had some debossing projects and it was very easy and looked great. A Cuddlebug would be the ideal thing to pratice this fun technique.
