AND, one more thing…ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!!! This time it is over at Canadian Scrapbooker!
Okay..now here’s that inspo!!!!
Ava here to share with you a cute little Christmas Decor item that you can make using the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral collection. Snip a few pieces of greenery from outdoors and you have a great table center piece or home decor item.
Search the internet images for pattern’s or check out Coats and Clark for this great reindeer pattern.
Emboss, sand and cut out two pieces of each pattern for each of the reindeer. You need a front and back which is glued together.
See how nice the inner core of the Core’dinations Cardstock matches so well with the paper pieced antler color of the Core’dinations Neutral collection?
Have some fun creating your own home decor items from the Core’dinations Cardstock Neutral Collection. Decor items can be so vogue with sanded matching color tones.
Emboss a strip of paper approximately 2.5 “, tape some christmas washi tape to the backside sand the front to reveal the core and trim your paper strips to the width and size of your choice. Add a rolled stem and some ribbon and you are good to go.
I know we have been giving you all sorts of Halloween Inspiration but today we are switching gears to something to be thankful for!Some truly gorgeous pieces from Designer Jennifer Edwardson that will make your Thanksgiving truly memorable. Thanksgiving in Canada was a few weeks ago but due to our three blog swaps, we are a bit behind on the blog. You can never complain about not enough inspiration around here, that’s for sure!

We are starting things off with returning Designer and Core lover Debbie Standard. Debbie has been with Core’dinations for years and knows and love this cardstock. She has an eye for mixing and matching our different cardstock collections and every time she creates something I say, “I don’t know how she does it all!”
Make sure you visit her blog HERE for more Gorgeous creations!
My name is Debbie Standard and I live north of San Antonio, Texas. I have been scrapping for about 15 years now. I have been a Critical Care Nurse for 18 years. I work part time in a Level one Trauma Center in San Antonio. I am also a mother to four, three daughters and a son. Between my husband and myself we have a total of six children, eleven grandchildren and one great-greatchild (by his oldest granddaughter), two cats. I love scrapping – it’s my therapy. I have been published in several magazines and can’t say I have ever gotten over the thrill of seeing my work posted in magazines, blogs and facebook. I have met some wonderful people through design teams and boards. I am so excited to be a part of Core’dinations Design Team. I have been part of this team since 2009 and have loved every minute. This cardstock is such an exciting product and I am so looking forward with working with this impressive group of Design Team members!

And a bit of everything on this layout…some sanded die cuts…some embossing and sanding….edge distressing…you name it! It’s perfection.
