We have a super cool layout for you from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira to start off today.

Melissa sanded the clocks from the Graphic 45 Timeless collection and then inked them in a “core”dinating color, just looks awesome and makes those clocks really pop, don’t you think?

Melissa colored in the clock hands with a black zig milennium pen then added a thin layer of glossy accents and allowed it to dry to make them  really shine.

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous layout.

Next up Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this gorgeous box and mini album for a future trip to Paris! A girl can dream, right??!?!  That is the beauty about the Graphic 45 papers. They take you to another place with their gorgeous Parisian themes and images of fairy tales and all things beautiful.

We want you hear how excited you are!

Today we have some gorgeous projects for you! Let’s Start off with a Layout from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. So many gorgeous gorgeous details!  Shaunte used loads of Graphic 45 products and anchored the layout  beautifully with some Core Impression in the Black Magic.  Hand cutting that Graphic 45 paper is TOO much fun! Don’t be afraid to use metal accents on your layouts like Shaunte did here with the flowers from the Graphic 45 Staples.

Next up we have a mini album from Design Team Member  Lydia Jackson.  Lydia created this mini as a gift for a friend. What better way to share the Graphic 45 love than with the most important people in our lives?  It is the perfect way to preserve those memories.

There is that cool Door Knob from the Graphic 45 Staples collection. And the Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless Collection is, well, TIMELESS! It goes with so many different colors and we just love how Lydia paired it with the blue.

First up we have a card and layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard.

Debbie used some Graphic 45 papers and Core Impressions and the gorgeous metal flowers from Graphic 45. They are the perfect embellishment for any project!

And Check out this box from Designer Andrea Amu!!!

It’s gorgeous gorgeous…SO many amazing details…

Andrea used the Signature Series Cardstock on this altered box and some Tim Holtz Kraft Core (red). She painted it, crackled it and how about that ornate Graphic 45 door knob! And you need some great adhesive for this kind of project, too, and Glue Arts works perfectly.

COOOOOOL! What better way to store your scrappy mags???

Andrea used her Cricut Botanicals cartridge for the designs on this box.

Scrapfest Tutorial

Thank you so much to everyone at Scrapfest for an awesome weekend!!!

Today we have a tutorial for you on how to make the project we did over the weekend in case you didn’t get a chance to visit us or you want to recreate it. Don’t forget that Arhivers in the MOA is selling the easels and wood bases in case you want extras.

1.) Cut the base from Graphic 45 Core Impressions.

2.) Using a corner round, punch all four corners and then sand.

3.) Adhere to wood base with some Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.

4.) Score lines on the Tim Holtz Dusty Concord cardstock strip from the Distressed Collection. Sand and adhere to Graphic 45 Core Impressions base.

5.) Fold the green Core Essentials cardstock in half and cut two leaves along the folded edge (See step by step photos below). We recommend free handing it!!!!

Now it is time to make the flower. We like to call them Core’Sages here ;)

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created a tutorial here for the flowers for your reference as well. (Please note the flowers shown here were created from a different color Core Essentials and Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper to create the veins in the leaf).

Again, please note... For these photos Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper. You do NOT need

it for this project. Just sand your leaf along the fold for the vein. This just gives it added texture. You could always score some of your own veins, too!

Now, clip your favorite photo or ink the edges of the frame and you have the perfect project!

Again many many many many thanks to all the amazing consumers we met and saw again this weekend.

WE LOVE  YOU!!!!!

Designer Spotlight-Hera Frei

Good Morning!

Today we have another Designer Spotlight featuring Hera Frei! We wanted to showcase each of our outgoing Design Team Members over the next few weeks with some of their favorite Core’dinations Projects. Here is Hera’ blog if you want to go check it out, she has some amazing project on there, too, especially loads of Core’dinations!.

Here is a little something from Hera in her own words:

I still remember the day almost two years ago when i received the email asking me to become a design team member of Core’dinations Cardstock. stunned and shocked were my first reactions, overjoyed screaming and yelling shortly followed. to say it has been a dream would be an understatement – it has been an amazing time where i have not only been overwhelmed with wonderful product but have also come to know a great team of uber-talented crafters.

Here are a few of Hera’s favorite layouts. She has such a cool and simple style that just shows off Core’dinations beautifully!
