How many types of Core’dinations can you get on one layout? Keep reading to find out!
Core Basics - 110lb White
Suzanna Lee here and I wanted to share with you this pocket page layout created entirely from Core’dinations cardstock. Not a lock of patterned paper in there. Well, there is a smidge of vellum! Guess how many different types of Core there are there? My point being, you don’t have to go out and buy those fancy cards when you can create your own cards from cardstock! Different types and the textures you can create with die cuts, embossing and stamping provide you with all the spice and variety you need!
Embossing and sanding with letter stickers. Overlay color on color for some variation.
Layer Whitewash on Core Essentials that has been embossed and sanded. Layer Gemstones on vellum and stamp.
The man and women were created with the likeness of the bride and groom in mind. I used Maya Road acetate shaped and rubbed with my Sand It Gadget on the paper leaving the outline of the people. I pushed down on the edges in order to create the slightly embossed look.
Did you guess correctly? Seven, 7 types of Core’dinations cardstock in that pocket page!
A little goes a long way with Core’dinations! it is amazing how easy you can make monochromatic projects with just a few sheets of cardstock!
Vivian Keh has so many small yet incredible details on this card.
Ranger – Crackle Accents
Viva Decor – Pearl Pen
A great way to add interest to your projects is to cut an image from the same color cardstock as your layout or card base. It is visually interesting and, in some instances, even looks like faux embossing! Plus…I am a sucker for fur baby layouts!
Hi there, Core’dinations friends! Vivian Keh here to share a layout of one of our furry babies, Jujubee. This past Christmas Eve, sadly, we lost her to cancer so I wanted to honor her in a layout.
Here are a few close ups of the details:
I die-cut these pretty birds using Core’dinations Core Essentials in Burgundy, sanding the edges for an elegant, subtle effect. For a bit of dimension, I propped the birds’ wings up on a small pop dot.
The pretty flourishes were crafted the same way, creating nice movement without being distracting.
To soften the horizontal lines of the composition, I added some Sizzix die-cut branches in a softer hue, “Concerto,” and paper punched some dainty blossoms in “Snowflake.”
This butterfly in the softest tint, “Rose Embroidery,” was dry embossed and sanded to further the natural theme of this layout.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. Thanks so much for visiting with me here on the Core blog. Looking forward to next time!

Let’s say howdy to Jennifer Edwardson!
Hey everyone, i’m Jennifer Edwardson and like most, I began scrapbooking shortly after the birth of my daughter in 2000 and never looked back. I’ve been creative my whole life and loved back to school shopping the most….all the paper and crayons and color – love, love loved it !!
Shortly after my 2nd child was born …. (like REALLY shortly – he was just 9 mos. old – CRAZY !!!) …. I decided it’d be cool to open a business, so I did…….and have had my own successful LSS since 2006.
I am so fortunate to get to do what I love every day …… I have extensive instruction and design experience that has allowed me to travel and share my passion with many. My work has been featured on manufacturers blogs as a Guest Designer, i’ve created projects for CHA, have been a member of the Bella Blvd. Design Team for the past 2 years, am on the David Tutera Celebrate Design Team, am an American Crafts Certified Instructor and now cannot wait to share my creativity with you during my time on the new Core’dinations Design Team (yep – super EXCITED !!)
When I am not running the day to day operations of my business or designing a fun new workshop, you can find me spending time with my husband, Scott, children Emma and Alex, our 2 crazy puppies and our horses on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada !!

These first TWO layouts are with our 6×6 paper pads! Cardmakers and scrapbookers will love these lines. Our same great cardstock just sized smaller for mini albums and cards.
How about a Glitter Silk layout from Shaunte Wadley…Shaunte used her Lifestyle Crafts die cuts for all the hearts. This cardstock cuts beautifully!!!
A Gemstones layout by Andrea Amu. Andrea embossed the Gemstones and then inked it…Looks cool!
And another Gemstone layout from Shaunte but this time in the 12×12:
Keep in mind these two lines do NOT have a sandable finish.
