Happy Tutorial Tuesday!
We have a fun tut today from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress. Kim created these SUPER cute bow ties for those fun Easter candy treats you get on a stick. AdorAble!
1 Start with your choice of Core’dinations cardstock (Kim used My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions), Sand it Gadget and  a Dust buddy.
2 On a piece of scrap 12 inch cardstock draw this design- basically think of it as two fish kissing. Mine is approx 2 inches wide.
3 Cut it out and then trace around it onto your core cardstock and cut out.
4 Using your sanding block sand the embossed pattern of your cardstock. Remember to wipe off the excess dust with your dust buddy.
5 Take your scissors and cut a slit in the indented end (cut half way through), now turn your cardstock 180 degrees and repeat at the other end but make sure it’s on the opposite side.
6 Now comes the tricky part, twist your cardstock over and join each slit cut into the cardstock
7 You should now have something that looks like this.
8 Push down on the centre of the loop as shown.
9 Staple through all the layers to hold it together.
10 Cut a strip approx 1 inch wide of a coordinating pattern paperand wrap around the middle of your bow and glue into place.
11 Now take your chocolate bunny on a stick and using strong adhesive, adhere the back of your bow to the stick as shown. Allow to dry.
12 Your bunny is complete

Oooh, this looks fantastic! Great samples with this line.

Today is all about BasicGrey and My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions! Yep! You guessed it….we have TWO giveaways for you today.

First up we have Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley with a layout using the MME Core Impressions. Did you know we have mini packs of cardstock in the MME design for our cardmaker friends?  We sure do!  Obviously these look awesome on layouts as Shaunte shows us here.

Love how she hung the cutout shapes with the MayArts Ribbon like ornaments!

And a close-up. Love how Shaunte inked the edges in black. Looks gorgeous on the whitewash and a great way to accent that sanding. REMEMBER! Use your Dust Buddy before you ink 😉

And next up we have some BasicGrey Core Impressions from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress using the Whimsy collection.

How about this for upcycling your scrappy packaging???? Everything does go better with candy.

See you tomorrow!

It’s Hockey Time!

With the Stanley Cup playoffs in full force, we thought it would be a great time to share our love of all things hockey!

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson shared this layout with us over the weekend and it is just priceless. The My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions background is perfect for this layout. Just a touch of sanding around the edges is awesome and just enough to show off that gorgeous red core. Lydia accents that red in small areas throughout the layout, too. And pair it with some neutrals & a touch of blue from the Core Essential line and voila!

We would love to see what you can do with your Black Magic Core Impressions!

Have a gReAt week!
