The crop dates are November 1st through the 10th 2013. Designers will be posting their challenges on their individual blogs on Friday, November 1st through Sunday November 3rd.  We have designers from all over the world so please be patient as the time zones will vary but they will do their best to have them up first thing Friday Morning.

You have through Sunday Night, November 10th midnight EST to get them posted. Main schedule is posted Friday and will be updated all weekend long. All questions should be directed to the Core blog to THIS post, on the desinger’s blog, or on our Facebook Hard Core Crop page here.

Each Designer will post their challenge on their blog with Linkitz. You will need to link your project to that post, again, by midnight EST November 10th.  This way you can post your projects on your blog, Flicker, Pinterest, Photobucket or whatever photo sharing site you use and then just link them. We will have a master challenge list here on the Core Blog for you so that you can keep track of all the challenges easily. Challenges will be for layouts, little alterables, and cards so everyone will be able to find some challenges they will enjoy. All you need is Core’dinations Cardstock. You must use Core on your creations to be eligible!  And all layouts must have photos.  

We will also be posting tidbits and fun stuff on our Facebook Event page HERE so stay close because you never know when a giveaway will pop up over there!

SO…how do you win some Core???

Designers will pick an entry from their blog to win the Core’dinations Cardstock designated that day. Our team is looking for creative uses for Core (and other things like following rules). Get creative and show off you use that Core’dinations Cardstock!  Some of our challenges are Holiday related due to the time of year. If you do not celebrate that particular holiday please feel free to use another one you feel fits the challenge the best. We are easy!

On or around November  13th, a master list of winners will be posted on the Core blog so please make sure you check back then to see if you won!  (Designers will be posting on their individual blogs as well). The more challenges you participate in, the better your chances of winning! You may do each challenge as many times as you wish but you may not combine challenges. We also ask since our Designers and Team have put a lot of time in to this crop that these are newly created projects just for this event.

So get those photos printed…stock up on adhesive…we are ready!


So how about a sneak of one of the challenges???? EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEL I couldn’t be MORE excited :)

Pre Crop Challenge!

November 23, 2012 by  
Filed under Core Blog, May Arts Ribbon

Tomorrow is THE DAY! BUT…we have a surprise for you :)

Anyone scrapping tonight???  How about a pre-crop challenge from Designer Shaunte Wadley?

Now this might just be the cutest stocking stuffer EVER!

Shaunte used a piece of the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System Step 2 Layer and, folded it in half and adhered it over the top of the Chapstick.

Next, embellish! A David Tutera Celebrate STep 3 Tag would be perfect.  Yep…everything comes PRE-EMBOSSED for you! Just pop ‘em out of the package sand and you are ready to go. Even the birdie is from the David Tutera Celebrate step 3 line, too!

Last, but not least, a fun sentiment. Chappy Holidays! Wouldn’t this be cute for Chappy Birthday, too?

SO…for this challenge, you need to create a  small gift item. It doesn’t have to be chapstick but it can be any little stocking stuffer you want…it just needs to be some kind of   itty bitty cute little gift. We will post all the rules tomorrow morning and a master challenge list for you.

The winner of this challenge will win a  BRAND NEW David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system goodie pack so you can easily recreate fun projects like this.

Please note you can use ANY Core for this project, not just the David Tutera Celebrate line. If you have our Cut & Emboss collection, that size would be perfect for this, too.  If all fails, cut yours down to size or use some scraps.

Ribbon is from our friends over at May Arts.


Challenges must use the Linkinz below (. If you do not have a blog, please
feel free to use Photobucket or Flickr or any other photo sharing sight that
provides links. Challenges must include {any kind of} Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock.
You may NOT combine this challenge with any of the other HCC challenges but
you may complete this challenge as many times as you like.  We do ask that since our designers put so much time into those projects that this is newly created just for our HCC crop. You must link by
8 pm, December 2nd (Sunday). All winners must email by DECEMBER 12th with their name, address,
phone number and prize the won in the subject line. For ex.: Core’dinations
Crop Tillie Prize pack Winner.

We are!

We are gearing up for our SECOND Hard Core Crop and it starts soon so gather up those supplies and your Core’dinations Cardstock because we have TONS of challenges for you. AND they are all Holiday related. Cards, sketches, layouts, tags, fun little projects…you name it…we got it to get you ready for your holiday season.

AND we have our FIRST gift for you!  Our Hard Core Cropper Blinkie. And it’s all dressed up and ready to go, too!

Wear it proud on your blogs and Facebook and come back here and let me know so I can put you in to win our FIRST prize pack.  Don’t forget to link up where you put it because we do random checks. You don’t want to be on Santa’s Naughty list, do you?

Just right click on the image below and copy the link or save it to your computer. Or here is the direct link to copy and paste:

Now for some deets on the crop so you know how to manage your time that weekend week.

Challenges will be posted starting November 24th (Saturday) and November 25th (Sunday). You will have ONE WEEK to complete challenges. They must be uploaded using inLinkz on the designers individual blogs (don’t worry we will have a master list here for you). You MUST use Core on your projects . You can do each challenge as many times as you like but you cannot combine them. We do ask that since we put a lot of time into planning this event that challenges are newly created for this event.

We will post a shopping list here for you soon but you shouldn’t need much more than you have in your stash. Like I said, you must use Core so make sure you stock up on that.

We started the Facebook Event Page HERE so make sure you RSVP. Even if you aren’t sure, I would suggest saying “yes” so you can get updates when we post challenges, etc.  And we are chatting up a storm over there and we had a ton of fun last time getting to know each other. It’s a great way to “meet” fellow scrappers from ALL over the world!

That’s it for now. Just get ready for the 24th!

Any questions just ask!

AND if you aren’t a Hard Core Crafter, PLEASE sign up here! We have tons of perks like sneak peeks (wink wink there might be some coming soon with CHA right around the corner) and EXCLUSIVE videos. AND there just might be an EXCLUSIVE challenge in there for the crop. Just saying there might be ;)
