First up today we have some fun stuff for  you.

We are sponsoring a giveaway over at Cookin’ Up Creations!  Would you love to win this???   Check out the Forum HERE and how to win HERE!

So we have some more ideas for you for Father’s Day. Love this idea from Jennifer Edwardson…it can be used for ANY occasion…at tri-fold card! Of course, it is full of tons and tons of gorgeous Core’dinations Cardstock!

Here is a little bit about this project from Jennifer:

I am pretty new to the Silhouette game but have been having so much fun finding new pieces to cut out and turn into great projects !! I loved this folding card and thought it would be great to add a couple of photos to as a gift…..It would look so cute on a shelf, mantle or bedside table too !!


I cut the base using the Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (No.23) and then ran either end thru my die cutting machine with swirly embossing folder. Then I sanded off the top layer to show the kraft underneath as well as the edges of the base too. I cut a few more doilies out as well and embossed both sides of the same cardstock and sanded off the top layer to those as well.


I punched a few flowers from some of the Core Essentials that coordinated with my photos and layered all the pieces together finishing them off with a little circle punched from my fave Core Couture in Black Tie. I added a couple of Core Couture butterflies and some clear gems from the David Tutera Celebrate collection too !! I really love how this all came together and can’t wait to give this to the kids’ grandparents :)


Supplies:
Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection – No. 23
Core Essentials – Harbourside
Core Essentials – Dahlia

Say Hello too….Vivian Keh!

For the past two weeks we have been giving away prizes EVERY DAY while we introduce our brand new 2013-2014 Design Team and today we are introducing Vivan Keh!

Here is a little bit about Vivian:
Vivian, (aka contadinak on youtube and social media) loves all art and craft, nature and the garden, hangin’ with her husband, frolicking with the dogs, good food, occasional pretty drinks, and all things that keep her PRESENT. She currently designs for Sizzix, Hampton Art, Scraps of Darkness kit club, PaperHaus Magazine, and will be guesting with Donna Salazar Designs in September. She has been published in The Stamper’s Sampler, Scrap 365, PaperHaus Magazine, and Papercrafts Magazine. She is very excited to join the talent on the Core’dinations 2013 team and looks forward to sharing many inspirations and techniques with you!
I’m so very excited to meet all you fellow Core fans today!  My name is Vivian Keh and with this layout I’d like to share with you a few things about me!

I go completely bonkers about nature and the garden, hence my nickname on various social media platforms – Contadina K. The pooches and I are happiest when we are hangin’ out in the garden.  And when inspiration in the craft studio lags, all I need to do is step out back and stroll around.

While growing up, I dreamed about having a sizable plot in which to cultivate produce and flowers, and since recently moving to San Jose with my husband and our furry family, I’ve spent every free minute out in the yard, cultivating the mediocre the soil, and starting a bunch of plants from seed.  These are just a few plants that are currently growing in the back.  I’m hoping that in a few years, we’ll be able to harvest most of our produce from our own yard!
In this layout, I’ve dry embossed, die-cut, sanded, and distressed some vibrant shades of Core to create interest, and once it was all done, I said to myself, “Oh my word!  It’s nearly flat!”  My papercrafted projects are most often very dimensional.  That is one of the great characteristics of Core – you can create so much texture so easily and still have an easily mailable card or an easily sleeved layout.
My love of papercraft was born at the tail end of a career teaching adults ESL in Los Angeles.  At the time, I couldn’t afford to buy a decent gift for a dear friend.  So I made her a card.  I was surprised to see how deeply happy it made her, and I know she carried that card with her for months so she could look at it when she needed a pick me up.  That is when my love of cardmaking was born.  My interest in cards has drawn me into layouts, art journaling, and a profound love of mixed media.  Please stop by my blog to see more of my art and craft at:

This year on the Design Team, I’m looking forward to working with even more of the beautiful hues and rich textures of Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock.  Nothing would make me happier than being able to inspire you along the way!

Today is our last day of our week with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

If you are looking for crop winners we will be posting that today in a separate post.

Here are some Technique Tips for this layout from Design Team Member April Derrick: ICut up the photo corners and turned them into arrow embellishments for my page.Instead of placing a cd into the self adhesive CD photo pocket,  turn it into a holder for an interactive page embellishment. It’s a small booklet that you can slide in and out of the clear pocket and it has journaling and another photo on the inside!   Brilliant!

And Debbie Standard has some gorgeous cards for us today! Those Scrabook Adhesives by 3L go beautifully with cards, too!
