Today Design Team Member Debbie Standard created some gorgeous layouts for you today. So sit back with that coffee and get ready to be inspired!
Chevron is so HOT right now, you can’t help but reach for this gorgeous piece of Chevron Cardstock every chance you get 😉 Debbie paired hers with some hand cut Pink Paislee patterned paper details and some additional Pink Paislee Core Impression Cardstock for a beautiful layout.
This layout from Debbie really shows the versatility of Core. In this Core Impressions paper pack, you will get colors that fit any project…Pink..Blue…Yellow…Chocolate Box…you name it!
And last but not least… another way to use Core and patterned paper. Cardstock doesn’t always have to be the start of your layout. Reach for some Patterned Paper first and then anchor it with some Core Impressions. Love the graphic print against the sanded circles! And of course those cute hand cut fishies 😉
We are hitting it hard today with our Label Makers.
We just LOVE using it around here. It works perfectly with Core and if you aren’t sure how to use it, CLICK HERE for the video and some “how to” tips under “LABEL IT”.
For these next two layouts Design Team Member Lydia Jackson used her label maker. Check them out!
For this fun summery layout, Lydia also used some of the Core Tags and the background is Jillian Spotted Cardstock. We love these and are so great for any project. Lydia also used her Xyron for the waves. And make sure you look closely at the Title. Lydia used her Tim Holtz Ranger inks to gently ink the white Paper Trunk alphas…doesn’t that look FABULOUS! Great detail….
And next up is Design Team Member Leica Forrest. She created this beautiful layout about herself and used her Label Maker for ALL of her journaling. Love the Pink Paislee Core Impressions against the Chocolate Box.
We will post May Arts/Petaloo winner tomorrow!
We are so excited to be sharing this week of May Arts, Petaloo AND Core’dinations with you!

Don’t forget to comment all week long for a chance win a Core’dinations prize pack! And head over to our Facebook page…you never know when we offer up another chance to win.
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.
Goooood Monday Morning!
We are up bright and early to bring you some Core’dinations and Glue Arts projects.
But first we have some winners to announce, right???? (Please note: we will post WCMD winner & October Colour Lover’s Challenge tomorrow)
We have FOUR winners to announce from our Spellbinders trade last week.
So without further ado the winners are…….

And, YES, we are giving away ANOTHER pack of Core for one lucky winner that posts here on the blog this week!!!
Today we have some designs from Ellen Sosnoski.
I love taking my projects off the page and you must have a good adhesive to be able to do just that.
And next up I created a card using some Pink Paislee Core Impressions and a Core Tag in Pastels (I looooove these!!!) I was over at their Live Pink (The Pink Paislee forum) this weekend and played along with some of their WCMD challenges to upcycle so I used a rubon applicator.
This is the best part. I used some UCut it Foam Adhesive, of course, and ONE adhesive square for the rubon applicator! I only needed one that is how tacky they are. I put it right under the ribbon knot and it’s not going anywhere.
See you tomorrow!
We are here all week long with Glue Arts!
