Mixing it up Monday!

We hope this week is going to be a great one for you. Today we wanted to showcase a few projects using different lines of Core’dinations. The great thing about our cardstock is that you can mix and match our lines to create unique, one of a kind projects.

Each line core’dinates with the others! So get out that Core Impressions and Core Amour and that Vintage and Core Essentials and get ready to be inspired.

If this card by Design Team member Heather Bowser doesn’t get your week started of brilliantly than I don’t know what will. Check out the mix of textures and different Core’dinations cardstock (Vintage, Core Essentials, Stacy Julian Core Impressions).

And for this layout, Design Team Member Cari Locken uses Graphic 45 Core Impressions (background), Core Amour (striped strips along the top and bottom) and Core Essentials.

Have you seen our video on paper tearing?  It is such a simple and effective way to add texture and release that gorgeous inner core!

Have a great week. I have a busy day today picking our winners from our Facebook give-a-way  last week and this weekend so stay tuned for some announcements!

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.

Here on the Core blog! Check out this cool mask Design Team Member Char Dobson created with her Cricut.   Once Char cut the mask from some Black Magic Cardstock, she tore Gemstones Cardstock for the feathers and then embellished with some Queen & Co pearls. Then just finish it off with some ribbon and you are done!

And check out this cute model!  Such a fun and easy project for a party or even a craft project to do with your kids.

Have a great week!!!

We are celebrating color again today with one of the most classic color combinations:  Black, White and Red.  And it just so happens that some of our lines are just perfect for this combo!

First up is a layout from Design Team Member Kim Moreno featuring some Black Magic and Core Essentials Cardstock.

For this layout Kim tore the edge of each of the “frames” used around the photos and sanded the Core Impressions cardstock to reveal the stars. She also used her Scor-Pal to  score  the lines across the bottom and top,then punched and sanded a border to adhere below the ribbon. Remember to check out our videos here for more information on scoring.

And if you love Black and White you have to check out our NEW Jenni BowlinCore Amour collection. You are going to love this line!!! And if you take a hard look at this card from Design Team Member Debbie Standard, you may be able to figure out who we are doing our next blog swap with next month. ;)

And another project from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Core Amour Onyx is a staple in Design Team Member Debbie Standard’s work. She always creates such beautiful projects with this line.

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!
