1. Cut the base 3 1/2” x 5 1/2” from Spotted (red) cardstock using the Silhouette machine and the Library Pocket set from Silhouette. Lightly sand the embossed swiss dots with the Sand-It Gadget. Fold and assemble the pocket.
We have some fun tips from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.
Even though these layouts have a summer theme to them doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips for any project.
First up Melissa stamped on her Whitewash for this journaling. If you have used our cardstock before, you know it gets a bit dusty when you sand it. First up, you really should have a Sand it Gadget to make your sanding easy. After that, you want to use our Dust Buddy.
The Dust Buddy is a unique cloth that does many things, including cleaning the sanding residue so your adhesives can stick better. One additional thing it does is make your stamped images crisper and cleaner as seen on Melissa’s layout here. If you sanded this Whitewash and didn’t use a Dust Buddy, the stamped imaged wouldn’t be as great. So make sure you tell your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock retailer to get some Dust Buddies. They go a long way, too!
Goooood Monday Morning!

Now it’s time for some Glue Arts!
Make sure you head over to the Glue Arts blog for some awesome projects from their Design Team. They are also introducing a new product, Glue Glider Pro PLUS and they are doing 10 days of give-a-ways over there!!! And they have a GrEaT Facebook page, too, make sure you head over there as well.
And, YES, we are giving away ANOTHER pack of Core for one lucky winner that posts here on the blog this week!!!
Today we have some designs from Ellen Sosnoski.
I love taking my projects off the page and you must have a good adhesive to be able to do just that.
And next up I created a card using some Pink Paislee Core Impressions and a Core Tag in Pastels (I looooove these!!!) I was over at their Live Pink (The Pink Paislee forum) this weekend and played along with some of their WCMD challenges to upcycle so I used a rubon applicator.
This is the best part. I used some UCut it Foam Adhesive, of course, and ONE adhesive square for the rubon applicator! I only needed one that is how tacky they are. I put it right under the ribbon knot and it’s not going anywhere.
See you tomorrow!
We are here all week long with Glue Arts!

LET”S GET STARTED…
The first day of our 12 Days of Techniques is sanding featuring some layouts from Hera Frei. Sanding is an easy way to change the look of Core’dinations Cardstock instantly. Since the core is a different color, sanding is a great way release that inner core. Make sure you check out the video here for some GREAT tips, notice how she uses the Dust Buddy. On these two layouts, Hera uses our Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions cardstock. It comes pre-embossed so all you need to do is sand! The Dust Buddy and Sand it Gadget are great tools to have to get to the Core of your favorite Core’dinations papers so that is why we are giving them away today!
Not only does Hera sand away the brown from the Jenni Bowlin Chocolate box to show the red core but she mixes THREE different lines of Core’dinations. Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions (brown) Core Essentials (red layout base), and Whitewash (layered under the Queen & Co. embellishments).
Make sure you leave a comment today to win the Carodstock, Dust Buddy & Sand It Gadget! We will pick a inner and post tomorrow . Don’t forget the Teresa Collins give-a-way!!!!
