Day Six: Scoring

Each day we will be giving away a great selection of Core’dinations ! Each prize will also receive a Dust Buddy and our NEW Sand It Gadget! And today we have one of our favorite sponsors and they have a prize for you in addition to the Core’dinations prize pack!

And today we have a special treat from……

AGAIN????? Yeppers! We have some Awesome Chipboard from Tim Holtz to share today. We have some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Chipboard: Iconic Plain, Elements Plain, Basics Plain, Alphas Plain.  Here is a sample:


Why chipboard you ask? Because today’s Technique is outlining. Outlining is a fun technique you can use on any project and it allows you to stretch your budget  by being able to use your chipboard for more than one project.   All you do is take chipboard, lay it underneath your cardstock, and Sand! Make sure you check out the example below AND make sure you check out the video. It has some great tips!

PLEASE make sure you head over to Tim’s Facebook Page and tell him how much you appreciate his support of the 12 Days of Techniques!  I don’t know about you but I looooove my Tonic Tools.  BUT first you need to watch the Distressing Video here leave us a comment!

Did you know that Core’dinations has a Facebook Page? Make sure you check us out here.

Todays projects come from design Team member Ellen Sosnoski. Instead of using bought chipboard, Ellen cut out an tree image from some left over chipboard, placed it underneath her cardstock base and the sanded the edges.  Cardstock is Core Essentials.
