Fall is here and we are all about scarves..sweaters..all things warm including coffee! Well, Suzanna really made this layout in July and it’s of iced coffee but that’s okay That allows me to point out the fact that she used her brown journal marker right on her Core Amour…it’s pre embossed but that’s okay! Don’t be afraid to embrace that texture and write right over it
And can we just talk about the perspective of that photo? What a beautiful shot.
And next up we have a layout using loads of Core’dinations and some Graphic45 papers & stickers. What else screams fall but picking currants? Designer Shaunte Wadley adds so much gorgeous detail to this layout using her Lifestyle Crafts dies and Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered cardstock. The Graphic 45 are the perfect touch to add vintage elements to this project.
And how about some Chocolate box for that title?
Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions for the background.
Whitewash for the butterfly accents.
Chocolate Box for the title.
Core Essentials for the flowers and journaling tag.
Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered for the leaf vines.

First up we have a gingerbread card from Designer Vivina Keh. Keep reading because this isn’t the gingerbread you were thinking of
Vivian Keh here today to share with you a card which uses a technique I came up with awhile back which I call the “Gingerbread” technique. Perhaps a Hard Core video tutorial is in store for you sharing this really easy technique! In conjunction with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock that has been sanded, the patterns really pop off your papercrafted projects!
LOOK at that GORGEOUS Marvy Uchida punch!
“Sugar and Spice” from Pastels Collection
“Shabby Shutters” from Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection

This is the last day of our week with SCOR PAL. Do you have one of these? Well, if you are a paper craft you better. AND if you love Core, then you BETTER! Scoring, then sanding with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only way to go. We hope that you have found some new and exciting ways use your Scor-Pal.
Scoring raises the cardstock so you can sand it and release that inner Core. It’s gorgeous AND both design teams are going to show you easy and fabulous ways the Scor Pal products and Core’dinations can add interested to your papercrafting projects.
Did you know we have a Scoring Video? Check out our Technique videos for some awesome ideas on what you can do with Core, including the scoring video.

Beautiful LO~ I like the whitewash cause it gives such a ‘weathered’ feel to my projects. I have only seen it in individual sheets and was wondering does it come in pads also? Thanks for sharing
Now let’s get today’s giveaway!
Today is all about Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless Collection.
We think this collection is timeless and is always one of our favorites! You can use it with your favorite Graphic 45 products or pair it with what you have in your stash like Design Team Member Debbie Standard did for us today!
Love the use of ribbon on this card from Debbie. She combines lace and satin trim and of course the Le Fleur and Houndstooth patterns.
See you tomorrow!
We have some fun tips from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.
Even though these layouts have a summer theme to them doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips for any project.
First up Melissa stamped on her Whitewash for this journaling. If you have used our cardstock before, you know it gets a bit dusty when you sand it. First up, you really should have a Sand it Gadget to make your sanding easy. After that, you want to use our Dust Buddy.
The Dust Buddy is a unique cloth that does many things, including cleaning the sanding residue so your adhesives can stick better. One additional thing it does is make your stamped images crisper and cleaner as seen on Melissa’s layout here. If you sanded this Whitewash and didn’t use a Dust Buddy, the stamped imaged wouldn’t be as great. So make sure you tell your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock retailer to get some Dust Buddies. They go a long way, too!
