So how is your weekend?

From now until Christmas Eve we are showcasing our Design Team’s Favorite cardstock. Each designer picked a few of their favorite lines and created some gorgeous projects for you showcasing why they love it so much.

Then, on that day, just by commenting on that post, you have the chance to win! AND some days we might be showcasing more than one line … like today! ;)

Here is how it works:

1.) We post every day. The following day we pick a winner and then start over so keep coming back! (Except for this weekend)

2.) You have all day and night to post. Yes, you heard me! You can win up until the next day when I pick a winner when I get up. We want our international fans to be able to win and they are normally sleeping now ;)

3.) Want additional chances to win?  Comment on Facebook and share the excitement on your blogs! If you share on your blog, come back here and link us up. Remember, you can do it every day for more chances to win!

WE LOVE our FACEBOOK FANS! And we do LOADS of giveaways over there, too. Make sure you like us to be able to win ;)

4.) Please note: we will not be shipping to winners until the January due to the Holidays. And winners from this weekend will be posted Monday Morning.

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!


Tuesday’s Tip

Good Morning! And Happy Father’s Day week here at the Core blog! We are celebrating family here this week and today Kim Jeffress is sharing a fun and easy tip for you. AND it is her first time on the Core’dinations blog, too!

For this layout Kim used the full sheet of a Jenni Bowlin’ 4×6 calendar cardstock sheet from the mini collection on her layout.  These mini cardstock pads are so perfect for layouts and if you are a Jenni Bowling fan, you will love these. They have the Jenni Bowlin Studios signature calendar and bingo designs that will core’dinate with all of her gorgeous products and patterned papers as you can see on Kim’s layout.

Each pack consists of four embossed patterns in five colors totally 20 unique sheets in the 4×6″ size.

It looks great with the Black Magic cardstock, doesn’t it?!?! And look at that sweet, sweet photo….

And a detail shot of that sanding. Don’t be afraid to layer your embellishments and even your journaling like Kim did for her layout here. A GREAT IDEA for our journaling challenge!!!! If you didn’t see it, check it out here!
