You asked and you shall receive!
I have for you today a gorgeous layout from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress using Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Spotted and Core Essentials. Isn’t AWESOME how wonderfully all of our cardstock lines “core’dinate” with each other??? It makes scrapping easy
Kim works the tone on tone neutrals on this layout with a pop of red. Don’t forget all that gorgeous sanding, too! And Kim added a touch of paint along the edges of the layout, too. It’s just those subtle details that make this so gorgeous.
Make sure you are asking your retailers to pick up our new Sand It Set! It’s a Sand It Gadget and Dust Buddy in one!
Have a GREAT weekend!
PS…don’t forget to sign up for our NEW Hard Core Crafter program HERE!!!
This is probably one of my most favorite releases for us this CHA.
If you know me, you know how much I love my Sandit Gadget and Dust Buddy. If you use Core, you must get this! It’s a combo back that includes a Dust Buddy and Sand It Gadet and refill sand paper! Everyone needs one of these so make sure you tell your retailer to stock these for you.
Want proof of how much you will use yours? Here is a photo of my Dust Buddy from scrapping this weekend. I made two layouts with our BRAND NEW Darks collection pack (see yesterday’s post if you missed it) and this is what my Dust Buddy looked like when I was done. It definitely works and it picked up other dust and debris that makes its way onto you projects. Your projects (and hands) will be much cleaner when you use this.
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!

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!
