Today we have Debbie Standard working her Spotted magic!
Core has two kinds of spotted cardstock: Tillie is the large dot and Jillian is the smaller dot. Both are perfect for cardmaking and layouts since they come in BOTH 12×12 and 6×6!
If you like cards you came to the right place, just sayin’! Today we have some gorgeous cards for you from our very talented design team member, . But first… we wanted to say Thank YOU for an awesome week and weekend of Cropping Hard Core style!
We will post winners as SOON as we can. We hope you had as much fun as we did. Seeing Core’dinations in action is always amazing and I learn so much and see so many new things. So stay close!
Now here are Tracy Grubers two CUTE cards. She always stamps beautifully, don’t you think?
There is no question that I love to stamp and color with Copics. The awesome part? I can stamp on my Core Tags and then color them. They are made with a really heavy card stock, which allows you to color and shade your images without the ink bleeding. I used a Lawn Fawn stamp set to make this cute baby card. The background is made with Spotted Jillian Dot and Vintage Core’dinations papers.
The Chocolate Box Collection has some really cool card stock! I love how one side is brown and the other side has a variety of colors that can be revealed when sanded. I used one of this card that was a tan backing to keep with the “animal/jungle” theme. I paper pieced the leaves with green card stock from the Darks paper pad.
Hello! My name is Kate Nolan-Denham, but I answer to Katie, Mom, and Mimi, too. I live in Maine with my dear hubby (Scott), our youngest daughter(Lily) and two dogs(Lexi & Ryder). Our oldest daughter(Kass) lives nearby with our two grandsons(Chase & Seth). We are so lucky to live in a small community that is situated only 45 minutes from the ocean and the mountains. By day, I am an Office Manager for a Speech-Language Pathology Center. I love my day job because the women I work with do great work and have huge hearts! I was encouraged to start scrapbooking by a dear friend who insisted that scrapbooking was “so me.” She was right! Twelve years later my love of paper crafting has evolved to include scrapbooking, card making, stamping, altered art, and a dabbling of mixed-media. My style is clean and colorful (most of the time). I have had the honor of being on several design teams during the last few years, but I am especially excited about joining the Core’dinations team. Now I can check it off my bucket list!

This layout is so pretty and this is my favorite paper pack yet!

Today is all about Core’dinatons SPOTTED Collections.
This is one of our most versatile collections today. The Tillie spots are bigger and perfect for layouts and the Jillian spots are a bit smaller and closer together and are great for layouts and cardmakers, too. Just what every paper crafter needs in their day-to-day supplies.
First up we have Design Team Member Lydia Jackson with some Jillian AND Tillie cardstock on one layout and she used some patterned paper from our friends over at Jilliebean Soup.
And this is what we are talking about when we say this cardstock is versatile.
Check out this layout from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress…different color palette yet SAME GREAT cardstock and gorgeous,gorgeous layout.
And anyone have any guesses as to what patterned paper Kim used on that layout?
Yep, you guessed it. PINK PAISLEE. Why am I asking?
BECAUSE WE HAVE TWO GIVEAWAYS TODAY! Yes, you heard me right. TWO!
We have a Pink Paislee Core Impressions cardstock collection pack to giveaway today, too!
See you tomorrow. We will be here all weekend long!!!
