For the past two weeks we have been giving away prizes EVERY DAY while we introduce our brand new 2013-2014 Design Team and today we are introducing Vivan Keh!
I go completely bonkers about nature and the garden, hence my nickname on various social media platforms – Contadina K. The pooches and I are happiest when we are hangin’ out in the garden. And when inspiration in the craft studio lags, all I need to do is step out back and stroll around.
This year on the Design Team, I’m looking forward to working with even more of the beautiful hues and rich textures of Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. Nothing would make me happier than being able to inspire you along the way!
Brights Core Essentials
Graphic 45 Signature Series
Tim Holtz – Distress Ink
Tombow – Mono Multi Glue
So who’s up for yesterday’s Brights Collection pack winner????
Wonderful layout of your family! I am just in love with ColorCore paper!
And today we are giving away a pack of our Darks Collection pack. You will love love love love love the rich colors in this collection pack…it’s gorgeous!
Please note we will only be posting Monday through Friday. We will pick a random winner the following morning (or Monday if it is the weekend) to win a pack of Core’dinations Cardstock. The cardstock pack may vary due to availability. Winners must email firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
Thank you so much to everyone at Scrapfest for an awesome weekend!!!
Today we have a tutorial for you on how to make the project we did over the weekend in case you didn’t get a chance to visit us or you want to recreate it. Don’t forget that Arhivers in the MOA is selling the easels and wood bases in case you want extras.
1.) Cut the base from Graphic 45 Core Impressions.
2.) Using a corner round, punch all four corners and then sand.
3.) Adhere to wood base with some Tombow Mono Liquid Adhesive.
5.) Fold the green Core Essentials cardstock in half and cut two leaves along the folded edge (See step by step photos below). We recommend free handing it!!!!
Now it is time to make the flower. We like to call them Core’Sages here
Design Team Member Lydia Jackson created a tutorial here for the flowers for your reference as well. (Please note the flowers shown here were created from a different color Core Essentials and Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper to create the veins in the leaf).
Again, please note... For these photos Lydia used her Fiskars Paper Crimper. You do NOT need
it for this project. Just sand your leaf along the fold for the vein. This just gives it added texture. You could always score some of your own veins, too!
Now, clip your favorite photo or ink the edges of the frame and you have the perfect project!
Again many many many many thanks to all the amazing consumers we met and saw again this weekend.
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!
