First up just a reminder that our DESIGN TEAM CALL is going on NOW! You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to be able to create with Core’dinations all day, every day!
We hope you had a GREAT weekend and a fun St. Patrick’s Day! Beleive it or not we got FOUR inches of snow here yesterday! So the kids were home early and we had one last snow day, hopefully, boefore the first day of spring this week!
Speaking of Spring….when I think of Spring, Easter is one of the things that pops into my head.
Designer Shaunte Wadley created this for us today celebrating a classic Easter delicatessen, PEEPS! AND she used hers scraps. TOO CUTE!
Here is how she did it:
Jillian Dot Cardstock for the card base
Gemstone Cardstock for the Peeps and flower
May Arts ribbon, Queen & Co. Washi Tape (for those cute pin flags again!), Bunny is Lifestyle Crafts die.
First up..we have a BRAND NEW EXCLUSIVE Hard Core Crafter on the site for you.
Cards Cards and more Cards! Loving the new Shattered Collection? WE ARE! If your retailer isn’t carrying this then make sure you ask them. It is shipping NOW!
Design Team member Debbie Standard is rocking the cards for us today. We had one on Facebook yesterday and it got such great feedback we have more for you today! Debbie used some of our 6×6 collection packs here in addition to the Shattered and some gorgeous May Arts Ribbon.
And another…. this one as Shattered and some bits and pieces of our other collections. They all go so GREAT together!
AND..Debbie used some of our BRAND NEW Core SMOOTH tags! Perfect for stamping.
And another with all of the above
And Debbie embossed her Shattered cardstock here…SIGH……love it!
This just makes me smile all over. Luckily I have a good bit ‘o Irish in me but if you don’t, than this is for YOU! Designer Shaunte Wadley created this card with so many details! Pretty crafty how Shaunte used the washi tape and pins to make her own flags, don’t you think? And a simple scalloped square out of the Spotted cardstock is a great place for the sentiment. Embellish and you have a fabulous card that is perfect for any occasion! Don’t forget to use those 6×6 paper packs for your cards, too, they are available in both Tillie and Jillian Spotted collections.
Stay tuned for winners this week. We have a TON to get picked and posted so stay close! You don’t want to miss your name up here for some fabulous cardstock or the issue of Cardmaps Vol. 3!
AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT OUR DESIGN TEAM CALL HERE!!!!!!!! ONLY TWO WEEKS LEFT TO ENTER!!!!
We love quick and easy around here. And using Core’dinations Cardstock makes it simple and elegant.
Designer Lydia Jackson has a few cards for us today. Emboss, sand, add some October Afternoon goodies, SRM stickers, May Arts Ribbon and Voila! You have some great birthday cards. Oh and a few Queen & Co pearls for that sparkle!
And for this card Lydia uses all her scraps! Notice the yellow stars she randomly adhered over the embossed image? They are the punched stars from the yellow strip.

Happy Monday Morning! yes, you heard me. We have another day today with Helmar.
So, this post was supposed to go live Saturday, I just didn’t hit “schedule”. I must have just hit “save” instead so sorry about that! These things happen when you try and blog before the correct amount of coffee necessary to function.
Designer April Derrick created that shows off her love of Zap Dots and the 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. It works great on wood embellishments which always seem to need a little extra “umph” to stick since they are a bit heavier.
And check out that coverage with the misting on the Tim Holtz Kraft Core! Love it….AND that embossed chevron strop along the bottom is a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Core Cut and emboss 2.5″x 12″. They fit the 12″ Sizzix embossing folders perfectly!!!!

Today we have some gorgeous designs from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. For this first layout, Debbie adds pops of colors against the black Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And you need great adhesive to adhere that May Arts ribbon down, don’t you? Well grab that Helmar Quickfix adhesive tape runner ..it’s the perfect size for ribbon! And the 450 Helmar Quick Dry adhesive works really well for those little bits like the green flowers Debbie cut using her Spellbinders dies. You can dab some of the Quick dry on and you are good to go..and fast! No drying time needed
I know Halloween was last week but we just had to share this fun layout with you using some of the newly released Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. These are so fun!!!!!!! Pre-embossed sheets for all your favorite Holidays. Seriously..did I say how fun these are? It’s like magic when you start sanding and all the color starts to come through.
Remember to use that Dust Buddy after you sand so that adhesive sticks better.
How much do you love Core Tags?! We sure do! Each tag comes with a beautiful, sturdy metal grommet and that awesome Core that you know and love! Char used some of the tags from the Darks collection. The core’dination perfectly with our Core Essentials Darks collection. Add some May Arts Ribbon and Graphic45 Core Impressions and you have a fabulous layout!
Design Team Member Char Dobson worked that title with some Black Magic Cardstock and her Cricut. LOVE it!
Can you believe we are in August already?!
For a lot of us, it is Summer and it’s winding down quickly!
Debbie used some more BasicGrey Core Impressions on this layout in addtion to some Fancy Pants Core Impressions.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match your Core Impressions for some great contrasting prints. It’s just like patterned paper! Add some bits and pieces of Jillibean Soup, Bella Blvd, May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinder’s Dies and you have a fun, summer layout.
Oh and there is that Cloud Embossing folder from Darice! We are loving that one
