Let’s get this long weekend started off right! What do you think?
How about a pack of our Jillian Spotted Cardstock for one lucky winner?
2) Keeping the titlework on the adhesive backing, sand the Core’dinations Cardstock with Sand It Gadget until the color core shows.
3) Using your Dust Buddy, dust the sanded titlework.
4) Add any liquid you may use to enhance the color core to your title work before taking the titlework off the adhesive backing.
The pinwheels are cut out of Core’dinations Jillian Spotted Collection. This fun dotted collection is just perfect for the whimsical pinwheels.
Being one not to waste good negatives, I made two cards out of the titlework negatives.
With Core’dinations, it’s all about the technique! The beauty of Core’dinations IS, the core. The core of the paper, getting to the core of the matter. You can do so much with it!
Emboss it, crimp it, sand it and run it through your label machine it! These are the things I have done on this layout. If you haven’t already visited, be sure to check out the technique videos on the Core blog. There are many more techniques to see there too!
Crimp it! Running your Core’dinations cardstock through a crimper with some sanding provides not only a neat texture but a striped effect depending upon the color core you reveal with your sanding.
Sand it! I used the Spotted Tillie cardstock to create my own Lego bricks! Cut each brick to size using your paper trimmer and sand! Dead easy!!
Label it! I created the sub title of my layout by running an appropriate sized strip of cardstock through my label maker and sanded it! Simple yet so effective!
Chocolate, right? Well we have the next bext thing today… Chocolate Box cardstock!
Mary Pat here with a fun layout all about corrugating! For a video on how to do this technique with your paper crimper click HERE to view our Technique videos.
And we have Ava Gavloski here with a cute little shaped card for Easter.
Sometimes it’s a refreshing change to make a shaped card. Here I used the Core’dinations Core Essential’s Pastel Collection. Just Emboss and sand the card to show the inner core.
I embellished my card with a die cut from Spellbinders, May Arts Ribbon and ScrapFX chipboard to give the card some layers and texture. The Core’dinations Pastel collection colors core’dinate so well with each other!

Designer Suzanna Lee here today with an Easter project for you.
Using an accordian card die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, I created this fun Easter home decor. Each of the backgrounds is not only a different color but a different cardstock as well. I used some Core Essentials cardstock and some Core Impressions in various designs. See my supply list for more details.
The oval of each panel is cut using white cardstock and individually decorated using more die cut cardstock and some stamps.
Emboss bits and pieces of the panel for added texture like I did here with the tulip. Then shade it with Gelatos for a hint of ombre color and shading. Scor the outer edge of this panel and sand to frame the letters.
Embellish each oval shape and make a quick nest out of some twine like I did below:
Twine – The Twinery
Stamps – Stampendous, October Afternoon
Dies – Memory Box, Avery Elle, Die-namics, Lifestyle Crafts, Elizabeth Craft Designs
Ink – Heidi Swapp, VersaFine
Button – American Crafts
