As I logged on today to do the blog post, I had every intention of putting up a back to school card but when I logged in to our gallery, I saw this gorgeous card from Debbie. It made me realize that summer isn’t over yet!
I know we are seeing a lot of fall inspiration but the weather this weekend was rainy here Saturday and gorgeous yesterday and today and it just makes me realize that if we can squeeze a few more gorgeous days before that breezy weather comes….than let’s do it!
Here is a little bit about this GORGEOUS card from Debbie in her own words, “I saw the little flower arrangement on a flower pattern at CK and just instantly knew it would be perfect with the
Core’dinations papers. Can I say once again how much I love this cardstock! It’s just so versatile and dresses up everything I use it on. I used several different cuttlebug embossing folders and edges for this one.“
We have a visitor in the Core’dinations Office this morning. His name is Duke and he loves spilling coffee, running off with packs of Super Assortments from the closet, and looking out the window. In a highly unscientific pole where we placed a sheet of Black Magic, Vintage, Whitewash, and Chocolate Box on the floor, Duke – the chocolate lab – went for the Chocolate Box!
Here’s a picture of Duke. I challenge you to print it out and create a Duke-inspired layout!
The embossed and sanded frame really draws your eye in to that sweet photo!
Here is a little about the layout in Sophie’s own words:
Title: First Kiss
Journalling: Both of us decided that our 1St kiss wil lbe at the altar. When the momoent finally came, it was humorous when Pastor called for us to kiss twice!
Description: I love the white spaces in this sketch! So this picture was scrapped as I love how the space in the air well of the church building is emphasised by the white space. My Beloved and I decided when we first dated that our first kiss will be at the altar on our wedding day. So when it finally arrived, it was certainly worth the wait! Pastor played along – he actually called us to kiss twice, claiming that he missed it the first time we kissed!
We saw some layouts last week…now let’s take a look at some cards!
A beautiful card from Linda with amazing detail:
Sometimes you come across amazing projects that you cannot take your eyes off of…and this is one of those. Lesley, who hangs her hat over at Cocoa Daisy, made this stunning box using the Core’dinations Black Magic Collection. It really showcases the core of the cardstock and how you can accent it so easily with just tearing your shapes right out of the paper.
Thanks for letting us share your creation, Lesely!
Here are a few more examples from our Design Team.
I wanted to highlight some of the beautiful cards our Design Team has done recently.

Here is a little bit about Kandis in her own words:
I love being a stay-at-home mom and full time scrapbooker. I have been scrapbooking and stamping since high school and have since been published in many magazines, including CARDS, Paper Crafts, Paper Trends, Memory Makers, and Scrapbook Trends. When I’m not stamping, I enjoys cooking, photography, and camping. I am from Idaho, where I live with my husband Brandon and sons Logan and Landen.
