First up just a reminder that our DESIGN TEAM CALL is going on NOW! You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to be able to create with Core’dinations all day, every day!
We hope you had a GREAT weekend and a fun St. Patrick’s Day! Beleive it or not we got FOUR inches of snow here yesterday! So the kids were home early and we had one last snow day, hopefully, boefore the first day of spring this week!
Speaking of Spring….when I think of Spring, Easter is one of the things that pops into my head.
Designer Shaunte Wadley created this for us today celebrating a classic Easter delicatessen, PEEPS! AND she used hers scraps. TOO CUTE!
Here is how she did it:
Jillian Dot Cardstock for the card base
Gemstone Cardstock for the Peeps and flower
May Arts ribbon, Queen & Co. Washi Tape (for those cute pin flags again!), Bunny is Lifestyle Crafts die.
Andrea die cut the hearts for flowers from her Cricut, added some Queen & Co. pearls, and wrapped the stems in twine. Backing the title is a GREAT way to make it pop, too! Layer bits and pieces of the project to added depth. This is a great way to create your very own home decor for any holiday or season!
And GUESS what???!?!?!?!!?
OUR DESIGN TEAM CALL IS POSTED HERE!
CHECK OUT! You don’t want to miss the opportunity to design with the BEST cardstock!

Don’t miss out!
Today we have a card for you from Design Team Member Debbie Standard featuring our Core Amour…loving the pop of green with the black and white!
Today we have some layouts for you featuring our very fun shiney and sparkley collections….Glitter Silk and Gemstones ! Two of my FAVES! Who am I kidding? All Core’dinations cardstock is my favorite! 🙂
These first TWO layouts are with our 6×6 paper pads! Cardmakers and scrapbookers will love these lines. Our same great cardstock just sized smaller for mini albums and cards.
How about a Glitter Silk layout from Shaunte Wadley…Shaunte used her Lifestyle Crafts die cuts for all the hearts. This cardstock cuts beautifully!!!
A Gemstones layout by Andrea Amu. Andrea embossed the Gemstones and then inked it…Looks cool!
And another Gemstone layout from Shaunte but this time in the 12×12:
Keep in mind these two lines do NOT have a sandable finish.
We hope you had a great time with Hampton Art last week!
