YES! I said Winner(s)!

We couldn’t pick just one so we picked TWO!!!

First up is Irit Shalom. Irit submitted two fabulous entries with some fun journaling and cool techniques and here they are:

Some awesome Basic Grey Core Impressions on this layout. Love it paired with all of the vertical strips of cardstock and ribbon. AND, yes! We would love to go to that Cherry Festival! Sounds amazing.

Love love all the Jillibean Soup Core Impressions on this layout and how Irit sanded the “18” with the Core Impressions. And those layered journaling spots are the best!

And Sherry Coogan submitted this layout where she etched in the embossed woodgrain on the Chocolate Box like a REAL Tree!!!!

Such a cool idea!!!

Make sure you check out how Sherry mixed handwriting with tiny alphas for her journaling.

Thank you thank you so much for all the entries!!! We will be doing challenges every month so stay tuned for the 1st of July for details for the July challenge.

Winners can you please email your address and phone number (for international entries) to  ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com.

Have a GREAT week!

Here on the Core blog! We are celebrating brown and blue today! This color has really turned into somewhat of a classic these days and can be a go to color combination for any occasion.  Check out these two very different themed layouts from our Design Team using the same color combo.

A Sporty layout from Design Team Member Hera Frei using some Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions and Gemstones Cardstock:

Kicking it Old School

Good Morning!  We hope everyone had a great weekend! It’s Monday and we are ready to go for another week of fun!

But before we get started, we wanted to send out a huge congrats Congrats to all of our winners of the Core Impressions and Tim/Holtz Ranger contests!  The winners have been notified. We appreciate your support and response to the give-a-way and look forward to more of these soon!

Today we are kicking it on school here at Core’dinations. What does that mean exactly? That means we are using some pre CHA 2011 products for you today. Our Design Team is busy working on their new goodies but we still love some of those older releases that have become staples in our scrapbooking supplies.

First us is a Cosmo Cricket  and Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions layout from Kim Moreno. Aren’t these colors gorgeous???

Looks gorgeous anchored with some Core Essentials as the layout base.

And a double page layout from Ellen Sosnoski using some Jillibean Soup Core Impressions and Core Essentials.

And how about some Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions from Paula Gilarde. I know this is a Christmas layout but since it snowed here today, I figured that was okay 😉

We’d love to see your “old school” layouts! Make sure you link us up or email them to ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com.
