What could be better than Spring? Today we have a few projects from our Design Team that celebrate the joys of being outdoors as we enjoy this beautiful weather.

But before we get started….just a friendly reminder that….

TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY FOR DESIGN TEAM SUBMISSION! YOU HAVE UNTIL 4 PM EST TO GET THEM IN. CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS.

First up we have the cutest layout from Design Team Member Heather Bowser. From the clouds to the stitched raindrops…it doesn’t get much cuter than this!   And it’s ALL cardstock! Heather mixed and matched FOUR different kinds of Core:  Core Couture, Pearls, Core Essentials, and Stacy Julian Core Impressions on this layout.

And next up is a layout from Design Team Member Kandis Smith using Core Essentials and Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions.

How great does that stamp look on the Core Impressions woodgrain?


It Shimmers…It Shines…

It’s Glitter Silk!   Have you seen our NEW Glitter Silk paper that debuted at CHA this winter?  It is awesome!!! If you haven’t asked your favorite retailer to get, you should!

It is smooth like silk….meaning it cuts like butter. NO tearing in your paper trimmer, NO destroying your favorite scissors. Smooth as SILK!

AND it looks gorgeous paired with our other shimmery paper lines like Gemstones and Core Couture as seen in this layout by Design Team Member Heather Bowser. Notice she cut hers with a die cut machine?

Other Core’dinations used on this layout: Stacy Julian Core Impressions and Core Essentials.

And Glitter Silk is paired with some more Core Couture and Core Essentials on a card by Design Team Member Ellen Sosnoski:

Preferred Partner Supplies: Spellbinders, Sizzix and Fiskars.

Have a GREAT week!

Mixing it up….

Happy Thursday everyone. Today’s post is about mixing our Core Impressions lines with patterned paper. The great thing about these paper packs is that they are cardstock yet they can work just like patterned paper.

For instance, this layout by Design Team Member Kandis Smith. Notice how she uses the Damask print from the Graphic 45 Timeless Core Impressions line.  She paired with some October Afternoon papers that have a completely different pattern. And check out that little strip of Gemstone. Perfect!

Also on this layout from our preferred partners: Queen & Co. Gemstones and Maya Road Chipboard.

And here is card from Kandis using the Stacy Julian Core Impressions dot cardstock. Who needs patterned paper when you’ve got this collection in your stash? Paired with the Graphic 45 tags and some Core Essentials, you’ve got a match made in heaven.

And one last example from Kandis. Check out this layout with the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions against the graphic prints!  And of course that cute smile doesn’t hurt ;) We would love to see how you used your Core Impressions!!! Make sure you link us up on our Facebook page or in the comments here.

Have a GREAT week!

And neither did Design Team Member Cari Locken. She busted out some Stacy Julian for this fun and warm layout.  Just because it’s Fall, doesn’t mean we can forget about those wonderful Summer photos.

Cari combined Stacy Julian Core Impressions, Whitewash and myStampBOX stamps for this layout. Make sure you check out all the fabulous details like the scoring and her use of the negative space from the butterfly punch.

Have a colorful day!
