TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY!

Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.

You know what is perfect for Spring?

TIM HOLTZ SEASONAL IMPRESSIONS! Sorry for the excitment but you know how I get excited about my Core :)

Designer Debbie Standard created this layout using the Spring themed cardstock. .Just sand it and this gorgeous embossed design  with “seasonal’ phrases and designs.

AND ..it gets better…the colors of the Seasonal Impressions match all of the Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock, too! So, for this layout, the No. 15 will match perfectly. Debbie new instantly that the No. 2, No. 6 & No. 22 would look perfect with it.

And who doesn’t love a picture of their grandaughter kissing the Easter Bunny?

Happy {pre} Valentine’s Week!

This week we have Valentine’s Day projects for you all week long. From layouts to cards to fun altered projects we have a ton of inspiration for you.

Let’s get stared with a layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard featuring the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions. This pack of cardstock is SO perfect for the Holidays. You can pick and choose from a variety of colors that core’dinate with the Tim Holtz Kraft Core and the Shattered Kraft Core.

How easy is that?

And a close-up of that awesome Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered cardstock. It is SO COOL!

And Debbie added at touch of the Tim Holtz Kraft Core No. 24. Love the black against the pink.

Simple Stories Day ONE!

We are here with Day 1 of our week with Simple Stories! How exciting!

Make sure you head over to their blog HERE to check out the gorgeous projects their team created for this week.

Today we have Debbie Standard using the Harvest Lane Line from Simple Stories. This is the perfect line to scrap all those Thanksgiving  photos you just took  last week and all those great outdoor, Fall photos.  The colors are so rich and the patterns are classic Simple Stories with their fabulous prints and textures.

For this first layout, Debbie paired Harvest Lane with some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core. Debbie took her sander and sanded gently over the surface of the cardstock to give it that subtle, sanded look. Love that! The Tim Holtz Kraft-Core matches perfectly with Harvest Lane.

And next up Debbie used the NEW Tim Holtz KRaft Core Seasonal Impressions! And Debbie used some of the Darice 12″ embossing folders to emboss the strips. These are so GREAT!

See you tomorrow!

Stampendous, Tim Holtz Kraft-Core, and Ranger Distress Stains

WE ARE STILL GOING STRONG WITH THE CROP!

ONLY A FEW DAYS LEFT! Make sure you check out the Master Challenge List HERE.

Did you know that our friends over at Stampendous have a very fun challenge for us for our Hard Core {Holiday} Crop??

Check it out HERE. All you need is some Core and stamps!!!! And the winner will get a pack of our Darks Collection pack. The rich tones of this cardstock is PERFECT for this time of year.

Designer April Derrick has a layout for us! Stampendous has the CUTEST and FUNNIEST sentiments for Holidays like this Tinsel one that April used.  And she always ROCKS the Ranger and we all know how great the Distress Inks and stains go well with kraft.

Products used:

Core: Tim Holtz Kraft Core Nostalgic Collection, Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions, Core Tags
Stampendous Products: Boss Gloss, Shabby Pink Pastel Embossing Enamel, Glitter, Cling Poinsettia Background stamp, & Cling Tinsel Tangle Stamp
Queen & Co., Twinkle Goosebumps, Twinkle Motifs, Pearls

* Tinsel tip 1: I sanded over the embossed words just a little, and then I stained them with Ranger’s Distress Stain. I gently wiped the excess stain off with a paper towel and repeated the process once more to darken the color. As you can see from this layout, the Kraft-Core from the Nostaglia line and the Seasonal Impressions core’dinate perfectly!

* Tinsel tip 2: I used a damp paint brush to apply Beacon Fast Finish Decoupage to the Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions cardstock and then I quickly dropped some fine snow white glitter from Stampendous all over it. It dries in no time flat and then you have super sparkly embossed cardstock!

And just one more close up for you to get all this goodness :)

Especially our Core Tags..they ROCK!

Fab-u-lous Friday MOnday! YES..it is fabulous, isn’t it?!?!

Well, since this post was supposed to go up Friday and somehow I missed the publish button we will just pretend we are starting the whole weekend over ;)

Not sure if you saw over on our Facebook page but the HCC crop winners have started to go out! Please keep in mind we only ship twice a month and we generally get prizes out within that calendar month (sometimes there is a vacation in there and other unforeseen things come up).  We have to hand pick prize winners and each one gets packaged by a very special someone in our home office  and, if you have gotten one of our prizes before she adds a little extra something in there sometimes!) We have  had a TON of giveaways within the last month (around 30 prize packages are going out since July) AND we just  moved to a much bigger office!  So I promise we are moving as fast as we  can!

And we are finalizing the Card Design Team Call. It was not easy and this weekend we poured through them again to make some final decisions. There are so many talented card makers out there!!!

Have you seen our Seasonal Impressions by Tim Holtz!

Today we have a layout for you from our very own Mindy!  Look at all those cool impressions about Halloween and all things spooky and fun! Just and and you have an awesome and easy layout.

And a close up for you so you can check out all that sanding and tearing!
