AND today we have some extra goodies for you to win from….


Queen & Co. has a wonderful selection of embellishments and their colors are designed to Core’dinate specifically with our cardstock!!!

So I mentioned that today’s is to use our Core’dinations Cardstock just as it is. What does that mean exactly? You don’t always have to sand Core’dinations in order to enjoy the great quality. Core’dinations can be your go to cardstock for all your projects.  Today Design Team member Kimber McGray created projects with stamping. Yes, you can stamp on your Core! If you don’t like to stamp on textured cardstock, than just flip it over and use the back.  Notice how Kimber stamped on the backside but then used the textured side (the front) of the Core’dinations for her layered card bases. Beautiful!

Note on this first card that Kimber also drew a frame on the card base…don’t be afraid to write on your Core, too!

Look closely at this card. Kimer embossed on the textured white card base. GORGEOUS!

And another beauty here using some color blocking as the base. No sanding required!

So who is ready for yesterday’s WINNER??????????????????

I am 😉

Happy Monday!  We hope you had a great weekend. It is Monday again and time to share some great ways you can use Core’dinations as your go to cardstock.

Today’s tip comes from Kandis. On this layout, Kandis turned over her cardstock and used the backside!  We LOVE our backsides here at Core’dinations. And doesn’t it look great paired with some Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions? Don’t be afraid to mix and match the different lines of Core’dinations like Kandis did on this layout:

And don’t forget your rubons. Core’dinations Cardstock works great with any kind of rubons, too.

Today we are sharing some layouts from the team that showcase how Core’dinations can be your “go to” cardstock.

For this layout, Paula uses the Core Impressions from Cosmo Cricket “as is”. No sanding or embossing needed on this great layout!

And here is a layout from Cari. She does a bit of sanding on her 12×12 base but she also prints directly on her Cored’inations for her journaling. Even though there is a bit of texture on Core’dinations cardstock, you can still print and stamp on it and it looks great!

Paula Gilarde has some great layouts where she printed directly on her Core’dinations Cardstock.

Here Paula combined printing on her Core’dinations and she added some Whitewash clouds, too, showcasing how versatile Core’dinations can be for your everyday scrappbooking needs.
