Who LOVES Pinterest??? Well make sure you check out our Colour Lover’s Board and the other boards we have are FAB as well ;)  We love spending time on there pinning all the Core we find and the color palettes that inspire our team.

This one from Anthropolgie caught our fancy this month:

And here is what Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira came up with….a gorgeous combination of Tim Holtz Kraft Core and Adirondack lines. Remember…when using Core most of our lines “core’dinate” with each other so we make it easy for you  to mix and match colors!

I also wanted to post about a prize for our Colour Lover’s Monthly Inspiration. For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s. Sorry for the confusion but we are not offering a prize for this challenge at this time due to our GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY going on right now. It’s HUGE…a value of over $700!!!! So make sure you enter today AND tell your friends! {when you enter it will give you the chance to send emails to your friends and  share on Facebook) The MORE we get signed up, the bigger and more frequent we giveaway prizes!

And don’t forget to REFER Your FRIENDS! If they win so do you!

What’s Hot

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira and what is more perfect than using some Tim Holtz Core’dinations Cardstock!? Available in the Distress and Adirondack color, they are the perfect staple in any paper crafters collection!

Book Club Ideas

I don’t know about you but I am an avid reader.

I love reading and I am always looking for friends that read so we can talk about books and share them, too!

Well, Design Team Member Char Dobson created these super fun projects for us today and they are all about your very own Book Club. Move over Oprah! ;)  Char used a  mix of Core Essentials and Tim Holtz Adirondack and Distress collections and her Cricut, of course!

See that gorgeous tag?  That is one of our tags from our Core Tag Collection in the Dark colors. And check out how Char stamped over the Basic Grey Core Impressions! What a great idea…add some ink to the edges and you have a fabulous invite.

What a great project idea. I can handle that
one. Like the paper too.

So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways????

Today is all about Tim Holtz Adirondack Cardstock!

Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira worked up some amazing layouts for us today.

And how fun is this?  Melissa added a few of her favorite things to this layout, too! If you are familiar with Melissa’s work you will see one of these techniques on almost every layout of hers.

1. ) Sand the area  where want to journal (in this case, using the date stamp) so it “pops” off the page.

2.) Loosely and unevenly sanding around the edges of the page to create a distressed/weathered border.

3.) Grey!!! We love grey! And Melissa is obsessed with it.

And Melissa created some double page layouts for us, too!

The great thing about Tim Holtz Adirondack collection is that you don’t have to do grunge and  major distressing.  It is full of bright colors that are perfect for any project!!!

Core and Cheery Lynn Day TWO!

Cheery Lynn and Core have teamed up for some great inspiration for you this week!

Make sure you check out the Cheery Lynn site for some awesome dies and videos (such an awesome resource to know what sandwich to use for different embossing machines) and some SUPER cool NEW releases!!!

AND, their blog of course!!!

You know the drill…leave a comment ALL WEEK long for a chance to win some Core goodies.

Today we have some layouts for you! Make sure you head over to each individual designer’s blog for more details on each of these projects.

Design Team Member Lydia Jackson made this cool layout using the Stitcher Plate. Such a great way to add texture to some white space.

And here is a close-up:

And Design Team Member April Derrick used FOUR plates on this layout!!!

They are Circle, Classic Silver Stacker Layers, Silver Oval Stitching Tool, & Butterfly Bundles

Core’dinations Cardstock is from the Tim Holtz Distressed and Adirondack collections.

Check out how April journaled on the stitched circle!
