Fabulous Friday “Facebook” Finds

Good Morning! Today we have a few layouts to share with you featuring the old school Crumpling technique.  Core’dinations cardstock is just perfect for technique and it is an easy way to add texture and show off that beautiful inner core.

AND today’s post is inspired by one of our FABULOUS Facebook Fans, Mary Pat Siehl! We just love this technique here at Core and when I saw this layout on Facebook, I knew we had to do a post here and Mary Pat was gracious enough to let us use her layout.

You can see her layout here on our Facebook page, too.

Here are a few from our Design Team using the same technique.

First up is a layout from Cari Locken. Love how she mixed the Core Essentials (crumpled) with the Graphic 45 Core Impressions and Whitewash!

And next up is a layout from Char Dobson, again, using a fun mix of product and technique!

How cool does that Whitewash look???

Have a great weekend!

Mixing it up Monday!

We hope this week is going to be a great one for you. Today we wanted to showcase a few projects using different lines of Core’dinations. The great thing about our cardstock is that you can mix and match our lines to create unique, one of a kind projects.

Each line core’dinates with the others! So get out that Core Impressions and Core Amour and that Vintage and Core Essentials and get ready to be inspired.

If this card by Design Team member Heather Bowser doesn’t get your week started of brilliantly than I don’t know what will. Check out the mix of textures and different Core’dinations cardstock (Vintage, Core Essentials, Stacy Julian Core Impressions).

And for this layout, Design Team Member Cari Locken uses Graphic 45 Core Impressions (background), Core Amour (striped strips along the top and bottom) and Core Essentials.

Have you seen our video on paper tearing?  It is such a simple and effective way to add texture and release that gorgeous inner core!

Have a great week. I have a busy day today picking our winners from our Facebook give-a-way  last week and this weekend so stay tuned for some announcements!

Today’s Tip is about different ways you can use cardstock for your title. We love to show you how versatile Core’dinations can be using its color core but you can use it as your “go to” cardstock for any project. Today’s layout from Design Team Member is no exception.   We have a great layout for you today that doesn’t use sanding! GASP! Yes, we said it…you don’t always need to sand your Core’dinations. It looks awesome both ways!

Now on to the tip from Design Team Member Heather Boswer. Heather created her layout using a tone on tone color scheme by using a die cutting machine to cut her title.  It looks awesome! What a gorgeous and easy way to add a unique touch to any layout.

Supplies used: Core Essentials and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions.

We would love to see how you use your cardstock for titles!

Happy Thursday everyone. Today’s post is about mixing our Core Impressions lines with patterned paper. The great thing about these paper packs is that they are cardstock yet they can work just like patterned paper.

For instance, this layout by Design Team Member Kandis Smith. Notice how she uses the Damask print from the Graphic 45 Timeless Core Impressions line.  She paired with some October Afternoon papers that have a completely different pattern. And check out that little strip of Gemstone. Perfect!

Also on this layout from our preferred partners: Queen & Co. Gemstones and Maya Road Chipboard.

And here is card from Kandis using the Stacy Julian Core Impressions dot cardstock. Who needs patterned paper when you’ve got this collection in your stash? Paired with the Graphic 45 tags and some Core Essentials, you’ve got a match made in heaven.

And one last example from Kandis. Check out this layout with the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions against the graphic prints!  And of course that cute smile doesn’t hurt ;) We would love to see how you used your Core Impressions!!! Make sure you link us up on our Facebook page or in the comments here.

Have a GREAT week!
