We are kicking off the last few days of August with Paper Trunk projects.
We have had so much fun working with them this month!!! Check out their blog for some more inspiration and DON’T FORGET!!!
YOU HAVE UNTIL TONIGHT FOR OUR COLOUR CHALLENGE FOR AUGUST!
With the Kraft-Core, the kraft IS the Core! It’s so cool! So, one tip that Lydia shares is that you are going to want to sand your Tim Holtz Kraft-Core first before you print on it with your computer. This will allow the cardstock to absorb the ink faster.
AND how fun is that sand castle out of the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core?!??!?!?! Such a great layout. Lydia really shows off how you can use the blues and greens in this Paper Trunk line.
OH OH OH. And did you see those TAGS??? YES, we have tag! They are part of our Cardmaker Series and come with these gorgeous silver grommets.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a GREAT week!
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.

Now on to day TWO of our 12 Days of Techniques. Next up we have tearing. Check out the video on tearing here and it gives you a sneak on what you might win today in addition to the Core give-a-way. Whether you are a novice scrapbooker or been scrapping for years, tearing does not get old ’round here! Lydia Jackson is up today with a fabulous layout showcasing how you can create your own embellishments with tearing. Isn’t it snow clever how she creates circles with tearing? And the Whitewash Cardstock is perfect for your wintery layouts. The white surface and color core are the perfect way to accent those fun snow pictures. Just a great way to showcase how tearing doesn’t have to be in a straight line. Lydia also combined other blue cardstock from the Core Essentials line–don’t be afraid to mix and match the Core’dinations lines, they core’dinate beautifully!
So, for today, leave a comment telling us what unique ways you can use tearing on your projects and you could win some Core’dinations Cardstock, our Dust Buddy and Sand It Gadget, AND …yes I said AND…. a Tearing Ruler from FISKARS! (The image below is an example and not may not be the exact ruler winner will receive)
Please make sure you give a big shout out to Fiskars on their Facebook page and tell them you appreciate their support for our 12 Days of Techniques because you may be seeing them again this week 😉
