Mixing and Matching AND 6×6

Did you know that we are offering the BRAND NEW Tim Holtz Shattered collection in 6×6?  Oh yeah!

Here is a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Check out how she scored the frame around the outside of the layout and then sanded it. We love our ScorPals! Same GREAT Kraft Core!

And, since we are in the purple mood today….how about another layout from Design Team Member April Derrick. For this layout April paired her Shattered Cardstock  with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core. These two lines were designed in the exact same color scheme (No. 1, No.2, etc) so they core’dinate perfectly!

AND our Tim Holtz Kraft-Core is available in 6×6 now, too!!!!

April used a stencil from The Crafters Workshop to sand the base piece of Kraft Core. Just put your Core on top of it and sand and you get a really cool design!

Happy 5th Birthday to Us!

Core’dinations is celebrating FIVE years today! It’s hard to believe it but it’s true. And as a celebration the entire Core team…our designers, teachers and employees put together an album for our fearless leader, Anthony.

It was so much fun seeing it all come together.  Here are a few shots of Anthony looking through the book. And a few shots of the pages from our team.

So who wants a layout? ME! ME! ME!

Due to our Hard Core Crop and blog swaps we ran out of time to get Rebecca’s last Guest Designer layout out up on the blog so we are doing it today. Such a HUGE thank you to her and beautiful, out of the box designs that show off Core’dinations Cardstock. Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions was our very  first line of Core Impressions and it is still a favorite around here. It is so versatile…just like how Rebecca used it for a Christmas layout. The Red is perfect!

Sand first and then add some paint or stamping details for that perfect accent:
