Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great day yesterday. Due to technical difficulties, this post didn’t make it to the blog yesterday in case you missed the Facebook page.

Check out these adorable Valentine’s day cards Design Team Member Sarah Hodgkinson made with her daughter this weekend using only one sheet of Snowflake white (Core Essentials) and one sheet of Poinsettia Posies (Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions) for 36 of them!!! She also added some kraft cardstock from Jillibean Soup and used some Fiskars punches (hearts).

We love being able to partner with some of our favorite companies to create great projects for your inspiration!



Core’Sages–Tutorial Tuesday!

February 8, 2011 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Queen & Co.

So do you want to see our Make-n-Takes from CHA???   They were so CUTE and everyone loved them. They really showed off Core’dinations Cardstock and how versatile it is.   So bust our your Fiskars Paper Crimper and let’s get started.  And we want to give a huge shout out to Glue Arts for supplying us with the Extreme Adhesive Glue Squares for this. They worked brilliantly!

Hats off to Design Team Member Lydia Jackson for this awesome idea and Tutorial!

Steps to create Flower:

1. On the back of a 3×3 piece of cardstock draw a loose spiral.

2. Then tear the spiral shape, tearing away from your body.

3. Sand the torn edges of the flower to make them look antique

4.  Using petal roller or quilling tool, roll flower from the inside edge of the outer ring of the swirl

5.  When you get the the center circle, remove the flower from the tool.

6. Place an Glue arts adhesive square on the center circle and push the flower into it to hold.

Steps for Creating the Leaf:

1. Fold green cardstock in half.

2. Run it through a paper crimper on a 45 degree angle.

3. Cut  (or Tear) a half leaf shape along the fold.

4. Unfold and sand the textured side.

5 Adhere leaves to the bottom of your flower.


Voila you have a beautiful Core-sage!

tis the season for great techniques !! keep up the great work & hope to carry on thru the next 11 days ! woooot

If you missed us yesterday, that’s okay. You can still check out the post here on sanding and don’t forget to check out the video.

Now on to day TWO of our 12 Days of Techniques.  Next up we have tearing.  Check out the video on tearing here and it gives you a sneak on what you might win today in addition to the Core give-a-way. Whether you are a novice scrapbooker or been scrapping for years, tearing does not get old ’round here!    Lydia Jackson is up today with a fabulous layout showcasing how you can create your own embellishments with tearing. Isn’t it snow clever how she creates circles with tearing? And the Whitewash Cardstock is perfect for your wintery layouts. The white surface and color core are the perfect way to accent those fun snow pictures.  Just a great way to showcase how tearing doesn’t have to be in a straight line. Lydia also combined other blue cardstock from the Core Essentials line–don’t be afraid to mix and match the Core’dinations lines, they core’dinate beautifully!

So, for today, leave a comment telling us what unique ways you can use tearing on your projects and you could win some Core’dinations Cardstock, our Dust Buddy and Sand It Gadget, AND …yes I said AND…. a Tearing Ruler from FISKARS! (The image below is an example and not may not be the exact ruler winner will receive)

Please make  sure you give a big shout out to Fiskars on their Facebook page and tell them you appreciate their support for our 12 Days of Techniques because you may be seeing them again this week ;)

And don’t forget to give us a shout our on our Facebook Page. We love to hear from over there and it is a great way for you show us what you’ve been creating with Core’dinations. You might find your project on our blog during our Fabulous Friday Finds where we showcase projects using Core from the scrapbooking community.

All prizes will be shipped the week of December 27th.
