Good Morning!

We have some Easter Cards to share with you from our Design Team today!  These will definitely get you inspired to create some festive projects this week while you wait for the Easter Bunny to arrive.

First up we have a super cute card from Design Team Member Cari Locken.  Cari used Core Essentials, Gemstones and Whitewash Cardstocks and some Queen & Co. pearls along with the Cricut Expressions & Spring Holiday Cards Cartridge.

And here is a fun card from Design Team Member Linda Beeson. Check out all the cute details on here, including the gorgeous stamping on the Core Essentials and the Core Impressions Woodgrain on the cardbase.

And can you ever get too much Gemstones on one card? NO WAY! Check out  this beautiful card from Design Team Member Debbie Standard using layers and layers of Gemstones.

Have a GREAT week everyone!

We will keep you updated on the Design Team call as well.

We are! Here are some Fabulous Friday Finds from the Design Team to get you inspired and create this weekend!

WE love using our Core Essentials, it’s pretty much a go to for any project we use. Is it an essential in your scrap booking stash???

Yipee! The sun is out and has been for a few days. It is still cold here on the East Coast but there are some signs of Spring (even though we did get snow this week). I was just over at Design Team Member Linda Beeson‘s blog the other week and saw this gorgeous photo!   If you have never been to her blog, you should. Not only does Linda have gorgeous Core’dinations creations but she has beautiful photos as well.

And she has  funny cards ;)  Check out the beautiful Gemstones cardstock on this card, too, it looks fabulous embossed!

Here is a  card with a Beautiful Color combo that is fresh and bright, just perfect for Spring using some Core’dinations Core Essentials and gorgeous papers from one of our preferred partners, Imaginisce, from Design Team Member Cari Locken:

And Kim Moreno used FRESH and NEW some NEW Jillibean Soup! Isn’t it delicious with Core’dinations???

Have a GREAT weekend!

It’s a Colorful Wednesday!

Here on the Core blog! We are celebrating brown and blue today! This color has really turned into somewhat of a classic these days and can be a go to color combination for any occasion.  Check out these two very different themed layouts from our Design Team using the same color combo.

A Sporty layout from Design Team Member Hera Frei using some Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions and Gemstones Cardstock:

And a festive layout from Design Team Member Paula Gilarde using some Jillibean Soup Core Impressions:

Here on the Core blog! Check out this cool mask Design Team Member Char Dobson created with her Cricut.   Once Char cut the mask from some Black Magic Cardstock, she tore Gemstones Cardstock for the feathers and then embellished with some Queen & Co pearls. Then just finish it off with some ribbon and you are done!

And check out this cute model!  Such a fun and easy project for a party or even a craft project to do with your kids.

Have a great week!!!

Tuesday’s Tip

Did you know we have THREE different kinds of glitter cardstock? Didn’t know?  Already love it? Either way…. make sure you keep reading!

First up on this wonderful day is our Tuesday Tip and this week’s project comes from Paula Gilarde.  This gorgeous layout was featuring in the CHA booth this year in the section featuring all of our Glittery Cardstock, this layout more specifically the Core Couture line.

Here are some of our tips when working with our Core Couture Cardstock:

1.) Don’t Shy away from Color!  Mix and match your colors so they really play with each other and enhance your photos.

2.) Use a neutral to anchor your layout. Notice how Paula anchors her photos and uses the white Core Couture Cardstock as a focal point.

3.)  You can emboss it and tear it…the possibilities are endless! Paula used her Fiskars Paper Crimper for the corrugated blue strip. For more tips on paper crimping make sure you check out the video here.

4.) Use the backside to journal. Even though you might think every white is the same, it’s not. You want to make sure your white’s match too, so flip it over to the non-textured side to journal, ensuring the colors “core’dinate”.

5.) Have fun with it and make sure you share with us how you use your Core’dinations Gemstones, {new} Glitter Silk and Core Couture!

Now make sure you head over to the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog! Our very own Sarah Hodgkinson is over there with a fun tutorial and a card featuring some Core’dinations ;)  Here is a sneak of some of that fabulous Core Impressions:
