So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways???? We have TWO for you again today!

Today is all about our Core Impressions Jenni Bowlin Everyday Collection AND Black Magic.

These two lines are so perfect for any paper crafter.  Having some Core Impressions and Black Magic is an essential in your stash.

Let’s start with Design Team Member Char Dobson’s layout. This piece of Whitewash in the classic Country Store design is one of my faves, too! Love how Char sanded it and then inked it. Remember! Use your Dust Buddy after sanding, it will clean up the dust and keep your ink pad clean.

Char also added bits and pieces of the other cardstock in this collection, too. We all {heart} buttons, don’t we??? And that cute little August subtitle above the banner is from the mini pads of the JBS collection.

Next up is some Black Magic. There is something magical about this cardstock, for sure!  You gotta love the outlining technique that Char uses on this cardstock. We have a great video here for more tips!

Today we have some Thanksgiving and Fall Inspired  projects from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Melissa used her Fiskars Paper Crimper for this tag…

Let’s talk about these flowers and leaves. First off the cluster is awesome. Add some cool vintage buttons from your stash and you have a gorgeous embellishment.  And did you notice the leaves are May Arts ribbon?  Melissa cut them into leaf shapes and then held them near a flame (PLEASE be careful if you try this at home) to melt the edges so they won’t fray. And it just gives is a really cool, rustic look. Add some ink to your Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions after you sand it to help accent the different colors in your layout.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you are having a wonderful week.

Today’s layout comes from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

It is amazing that this layout is all cardstock!!! Who needs patterned paper? The cut out butterfly from the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions Vintage Brights line is the perfect accent to the punched butterflies along the page.  Just a great example of how you can use your Core’dinations cardstock as is and sanded in one, beautiful layout.
