Here is the cute card she made. Love all the great Cricut work and the glossy accents. A GREAT example of how Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock can be your go to cardstock for any project.

Now it is time to live with September’s Colour Challenge!!!
It is all about colour for sure.
Again, our inspiration piece comes from our Pinterest Colour Lover’s Board. Every Month Design Team Member Lydia Jackson gets the incredibly difficult task of choosing one of the beautiful color schemes found in Pinterest.
This month it is all about back to school!
What is better than rainbow crayons???
Our Core Essentials line is PERFECT for this challenge. LOADS AND LOADS of gorgeous colours…..
Design Team Member Debbie Standard Created this fun card using this colour inspiration using loads of embossing and sanding:
AND…Debbie created a layout, too.
The great thing about this inspiration piece is that you don’t have to use every single colour like Debbie did here. She focused on the blue, red, yellow, orange and brown. Looks awesome, don’t you agree? The Stacy Julian Line Core Impressions is great for this challenge as well. No one does Colour like Stacy!
Remember you must use Core’dinations Cardstock on your project and link back to THIS post by September 30th or link us up on our Facebook page.

Love the two embossed patterns together!!!
Make sure you tell Jolene how much you enjoyed her work! We sure did! Have a great weekend.
So do you want to see our Make-n-Takes from CHA??? They were so CUTE and everyone loved them. They really showed off Core’dinations Cardstock and how versatile it is. So bust our your Fiskars Paper Crimper and let’s get started. And we want to give a huge shout out to Glue Arts for supplying us with the Extreme Adhesive Glue Squares for this. They worked brilliantly!
Hats off to Design Team Member Lydia Jackson for this awesome idea and Tutorial!
Steps to create Flower:
1. On the back of a 3×3 piece of cardstock draw a loose spiral.
2. Then tear the spiral shape, tearing away from your body.
3. Sand the torn edges of the flower to make them look antique
4. Using petal roller or quilling tool, roll flower from the inside edge of the outer ring of the swirl
5. When you get the the center circle, remove the flower from the tool.
6. Place an Glue arts adhesive square on the center circle and push the flower into it to hold.
Steps for Creating the Leaf:
1. Fold green cardstock in half.
2. Run it through a paper crimper on a 45 degree angle.
3. Cut (or Tear) a half leaf shape along the fold.
4. Unfold and sand the textured side.
5 Adhere leaves to the bottom of your flower.
Voila you have a beautiful Core-sage!
