AND TO CELEBRATE THIS EVENT WE ARE GIVING AWAY A PACK OF CARDSTOCK EVERY DAY! Tomorrow morning I will announce today’s random winner…just leave a comment on THIS POST. And then come back and comment the next day. We will be doing this until the end of May so don’t go far!!!

The cardstock pack may vary due to availability. Winners must email ellen_sosnoski@coredinations.com by June 7  to claim their prizes with the cardstock they won in the subject line.  Please include address and phone number in the email.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are starting things off with returning Designer and Core lover Debbie Standard.  Debbie has been with Core’dinations for years and knows and love this cardstock.  She has an eye for mixing and matching our different cardstock collections and every time she creates something I say, “I don’t know how she does it all!”

Make sure you visit her blog HERE for more Gorgeous creations!

My name is Debbie Standard and I live north of San Antonio, Texas. I have been scrapping for about 15 years now. I have been a Critical Care Nurse for 18 years.   I work part time in a Level one Trauma Center in San Antonio.  I am also a mother to four, three daughters and a son.  Between my husband and myself we have a total of six children, eleven grandchildren and one great-greatchild (by his oldest granddaughter), two cats. I love scrapping – it’s my therapy. I have been published in several magazines and can’t say I have ever gotten over the thrill of seeing my work posted in magazines, blogs and facebook.  I have met some wonderful people through design teams and boards. I am so excited to be a part of Core’dinations Design Team. I have been part of this team since 2009 and have loved every minute. This cardstock is such an exciting product and I am so looking forward with working with this impressive group of Design Team members!

Here is Debbie’s layout. I loved learning something new about Debbie..she loves to Kayak! How cool is that???

A SHATTERING Tuesday Tutorial

Designer April Derrick has an awesome tutorial for us on this fine Tuesday featuring TONS of Tim Holtz Shattered cardstock. it is so versatile and this entire layout is cardstock!

First up, take your Crafter’s Workshop stencil and trace the template:

Next, using your craft knife, cut along the pencil lines:

You will already begin to see the gorgeous sunburst shape!

Now it is time to sew. Stitching on layotus never gets old! Layer the No. 7 Shattered cardstock on the No. 15 and you have a really great contrasting look.

And now for the final layout.  April added some embellishments and a Step Two layer from David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system. LOVE that postage stamp layer…it looks GREAT on layouts, too!
