Since we will be announcing the new Design Team on National Scrapbooking Day, we wanted to showcase each of our outgoing Design Team Members over the next few weeks with some of their favorite Core’dinations Projects! Today’s feature is Heather Bowser. You can check out more awesome projects on her blog here.
Here is a little something from Heather in her own words:
It’s been almost 2 years since I received the email asking me to join the Core team. This experience has been an absolute dream come true. Working with amazing products and an even more amazing group of women that I am happy to call my friends. I did not know any of these ladies before I started with Core but from the very first we all just seem to mesh. They have cheered me on, given me praise and have prayed for me during trials. I want to thank Core’dinations for giving me the opportunity to work with them. (well who could call playing with these products work!)
This card is the first project Heather ever created with Core’dinations and still a favorite!
Heather makes the cutest owl’s and little paper piecings on her projects and this layout is no exception!
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.
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:
Have a GREAT weekend!
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.
Have a colorful day!!!
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!!!
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”.
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:
