Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program? We sure do! We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers. How easy is that???

Today we have a variety of projects for you.

First up Design Team Member Kim Jeffress with a gorgeous wall hanging. There is nothing like some warm fall colors to brighten up any room.

This project is the perfect example of the Core’dinations and Petaloo color matching program.

And how much do you love  the colors of this card from Design Team Member Char Dobson???  Gorgeous gorgeous! I just love Core. You know why?  Because you can emboss it on your own or use the Core Impressions like Char did on this card. She embossed a piece of Core Essentials in orange and then used a piece of BasicGrey in Mantis on the bottom.  Again…the flowers match perfectly!

And Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira has another fun Fall project for us. She altered a bucket she had lying around the house with some beautiful details. Melissa used her Spellbinders dies in addtion to May  Arts Ribbon and Petaloo flowers. The great thing about these flowers is that you can color them!  Melissa used Tim Holtz Distress ink on the flowers because they were a little bright for the  fall color scheme. Again, just perfect for ANY project.

And Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this soft and feminine layout for us today. Nothing screams little girl like pink , flowers and ribbon! The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions.

Today we have a special treat for you from Design Team Member Andrea Amu. THIS is how you work Black Magic Cardstock. Just sayin’ ;)

And some close-ups. Add some Petaloo flowers and May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous project. Andrea also used a piece  of Tillie Spotted Core’dinations behind the frame.  For the floss-like fibers used in the button ties, Andrea pulled apart the May Arts cording… discarded the white fiber-fill from the inside and just used the flossy threads. COOL!

And one more…

AND IT’S CHRISTMAS HERE AT THE CORE BLOG TODAY!!!!

YES, I said Christmas. It’s holiday time so grab your spiced lattes and sit back and get ready  to be inspired. You are going to want to get out those Holiday papers from last year you never used and, of course, Core’dinations Cardstock!!!

Now, did you notice the title of this post?  I said “TREE” instead of THREE…and you will see why.

First up we have just the coolest card ever from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. I mean….a ribbon tree???  Yes! It’s ribbon, flower and cardstock (Core Essentials to be specific ;) ) heaven here! That is all you need to create gorgeous projects.

And speaking of cool trees…..

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson made a tree out of flowers. How cool is that!?  Looks awesome…such a great way to  use up those flowers in your stash. And Lydia used ribbon, patterned paper and cardstock (Core’dinations Spotted Tillie Collection) on this layout seemlessly.

Here is a close-up of that tree….LOVE the star out of some Core Whitewash that Lydia sanded.

And here we have a layout from Design Team Member April Derrick. How awesome is that sanded Tim Holtz Kraft-Core????

From the ribbon banners to the flowers off the page…such a festive and FUN layout!

MAKE SURE YOU HEAD OVER TO MAY ARTS AND PETALOO WEBSITES FOR ALL OF YOUR HOLIDAY RIBBON AND FLOWER NEEDS. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG WITH THESE TWO COMPANIES.

Today we have some Thanksgiving and Fall Inspired  projects from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Melissa used her Fiskars Paper Crimper for this tag…

Let’s talk about these flowers and leaves. First off the cluster is awesome. Add some cool vintage buttons from your stash and you have a gorgeous embellishment.  And did you notice the leaves are May Arts ribbon?  Melissa cut them into leaf shapes and then held them near a flame (PLEASE be careful if you try this at home) to melt the edges so they won’t fray. And it just gives is a really cool, rustic look. Add some ink to your Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions after you sand it to help accent the different colors in your layout.
