For some Chocolate?  Chocolate Box that is….

Today we are sharing some layouts from our Design Team featuring our Chocolate Box line.

Firs up is a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Debbie used Chocolate Box as the base of her layout here.  Debbie used Chocolate Box with a blue core and sanded the scored frame to accent the blues throughout the layout.  Also note on both of these layouts the hearts at the bottom of the page!

Other Supplies used: Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, Core Essentials Cardstocks.

This layout is from Design Team Member Cari Locken.  Brown looks GREAT with everything! The colors on this layout are gorgeous…blues…reds…greens and Cari anchors this layout with some Vintage cardstock as the base and uses the Mint Chocolate Chip Chocolate Box to accent the green. Remember: all of our lines Core’dinate! So the green in the Core of the Chocolate box core’dinates perfectly with the green from the Core Essentials. Isn’t that great? Makes matching colors for your project so easy.

Other Supplies used: myStampBOX stamps; Stacy Julian Core Impressions (red) and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.

Happy Thursday!

One quick thing before we get started we want to make sure you head back here tomorrow because we have a give-a-way ready to go for Friday and it lasts all weekend long so make sure you check back tomorrow!


Here on the East Coast it’s been cooooold.  But just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate a little bit of life and color around there! And if you know us here at Core’dinations…we LOVE color.

So let’s start with the primary colors…or at least two of them. Hera Frei created this layout using blue and yellow and a few neutrals.  Core Essentials is the perfect cardstock to use when you are searching for color. And our paper packs make it easy for you! And make sure you check out that totally cool random embossing!   Your Quickutz handles, rolling pins and hammers make it easy for you to do this fun technique.

And a colorful card from Sarah Hodgkinson. On this card Sarah uses color blocking that is really striking and simple. And take notice NO sanding! GASP! yes, we do that around here, too!  Don’t be afraid to use your Core’dinations “as is”. It’s beautiful and effective.

Red, Teal and Yellow make a striking color combination from Melissa Oliveira especially against the black background. AND if you use some Black Magic, you can accent one of the main colors by choosing a “core’dinating” core color with your Black Magic. Melissa created this layout last year but when looking through the gallery, this color combo really jumped out at me.  There are so many great details, too…the stamping with myStampBox stamps, the sanding with the Black Magic under the title in the upper left corner,  the Jenni Bowlin Core Impression title,  the embossing…so fun!


We didn’t forget about CoLoR!

And neither did Design Team Member Cari Locken. She busted out some Stacy Julian for this fun and warm layout.  Just because it’s Fall, doesn’t mean we can forget about those wonderful Summer photos.

Cari combined Stacy Julian Core Impressions, Whitewash and myStampBOX stamps for this layout. Make sure you check out all the fabulous details like the scoring and her use of the negative space from the butterfly punch.

Have a colorful day!
