Designers should have their challenges posted first thing in the morning (without unforeseen technical difficulties) but we are using the linkitz thing for the first time  (or at least I am, lol) so keep checking back and as they get posted… I will update  this list as we get going.

Thanks so much and we couldn’t be more EXCITED!

See some guidelines below:

The crop dates are July 17th through the 22nd 2012. Designers will be posting their challenges on their individual blogs on Tuesday, July17th. We have designers from all over the world so please be patient as the time zones will vary but they will do their best to have them up first thing Tuesday Morning.

Challenges will be posted on Day 1 and Day 2 and you will have through Sunday Night, July 22nd at midnight EST to get them posted. Schedule posted Monday. All questions should be directed to the Core blog to THIS post or on our Facebook Hard Core Crop page here.

Each Designer will post their challenge on their blog with Linkitz. You will need to link your project to that post, again, by midnight EST July 22nd, 2012.  This way you can post your projects on your blog, Flicker, Pinterest, Photobucket or whatever photo sharing site you use and then just link them. We will have a master challenge list here on the Core Blog for you so that you can keep track of all the challenges easily. Challenges will be for layouts and cards so everyone will be able to find some challenges they will enjoy. All you need is Core’dinations Cardstock. You must use Core on your creations to be eligible. Each designer will highlight a certain line of Core but you can use any kind you wish for that challenge as long as it is Core’dinations.

We will also be posting tidbits and fun stuff on our Facebook Event page HERE so stay close because we will have some fun random challenges going on there throughout the week, too!

SO…how do you win some Core???

Designers will pick an entry from their blog to win the Core’dinations Cardstock designated that day. Our team is looking for creative uses for Core (and other things like following rules, etc). Get creative and show off you use that Core’dinations Cardstock!

On (or around)July 27th, 2012, a master list of winners will be posted on the Core blog so please make sure you check back then to see if you won!  (Designers will be posting on their individual blogs as well). The more challenges you participate in, the better you chances of winning! You may do each challenge as many times as you wish but you may not combine challenges. We also ask since our Designers and Team have put a lot of time in to this crop that these are newly created projects just for this event.

So get those photos printed…stock up on adhesive…we are ready!

Tuesday’s Tip

June 7, 2011 by  
Filed under Core Blog, Jenni Bowlin

Good Morning! And Happy Father’s Day week here at the Core blog! We are celebrating family here this week and today Kim Jeffress is sharing a fun and easy tip for you. AND it is her first time on the Core’dinations blog, too!

For this layout Kim used the full sheet of a Jenni Bowlin’ 4×6 calendar cardstock sheet from the mini collection on her layout.  These mini cardstock pads are so perfect for layouts and if you are a Jenni Bowling fan, you will love these. They have the Jenni Bowlin Studios signature calendar and bingo designs that will core’dinate with all of her gorgeous products and patterned papers as you can see on Kim’s layout.

Each pack consists of four embossed patterns in five colors totally 20 unique sheets in the 4×6″ size.

It looks great with the Black Magic cardstock, doesn’t it?!?! And look at that sweet, sweet photo….

And a detail shot of that sanding. Don’t be afraid to layer your embellishments and even your journaling like Kim did for her layout here. A GREAT IDEA for our journaling challenge!!!! If you didn’t see it, check it out here!
