My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

This is my first time using Core'dinations Cardstock and can I just say that I'm hooked! I love the texture and I love that you can sand it! You can change the background in an instant to suit your needs. Being that I'm a simple scrapper and my pages usually take under an hour this was right up my alley :)

This is the first page I created, I combined Core'dinations with some Jillibean Soup for a superquick, super fun page :) It's of my oldest daughter and one of her good friends, at 16 they still went Trick or For this layout all I did was sand down the Core'dinations cardstock, punch out my title and border, tear some Jillibean soup pattern paper, cut out the hearts and used the sticker sheet to make fun and easy border around my photo and Voila! Super quick page in under an hour :)

Never too old to Trick or Treat

I love how these products worked together and made it so easy for me to put together this page :) I was even able to create this cute little card with my left over scraps, gotta love it when you can use up your scraps!

For my 3rd project I combined some Core'dinations with some Maya Road, so loving how soft and vintagy (is that even a word?) it came out! I'm also loving how the cardstock gave texture to the Stampin Up stamped images! Again this is my oldest daughter, one of my favourite photo's of her :) This page took a little longer ;) Before I went to work this morning, I spritzed the Maya Road chipboard and canvas pieces so they would be dry when I got home and I could start creating :) I stamped out all the images and cut themout, next I punched out my title using my Quickutz Metro Font (cutting out those stamps and punching out that title is what took the longest) The rest of the page came together so easily, another great partnership of products!

Reflection from the Inward Garden

Well that's it for tonight :) Had so much fun playing with this GREAT product, I know I'll be using it alot more!!
