~Pinky's Creative Crafting Frenzy!!~

Good morning my crafty friends!!

I am so excited about creating this week and today is no different!
I have always loved and used Core'dinations papers and they are
such an amazing product I thought I would pull out some projects
I have made recently with "Core" paper and have
my own little Core'dinations Creative Frenzy! hahaha

I made this layout yesterday in a pinch.
I actually had a couple projects ready to blog but they were picked up
by the Cricut magazine so I had to do a rush job for my blog today! haha
On this layout I used the Whitewash Core'dinations paper, one of my favorites!
I love how to core shows when you tear or emboss it.
I also used my new Lori's Garden Imagine Cartridge, it matched perfectly!
I actually use the tablets of Core'dinations because that means I always
have the color I need. Have you tried the "Core" yet??
I stayed with simple elegance on this page. But I am happy with it.
I was totally crafty yesterday and I also made this all occasion card
I haven't decided if I want it to be
my Easter card or my Welcome Spring card?
I used the Whitewash paper first, I put it in my Cricut Imagine and cut the
shape for the card, then and ran it through my Cuttlebug, then I filed off
the dots a little to show the beautiful teal underneath.
Then I took the Core Couture and used my Imagine to cut the shape
slightly larger. I really wanted the BLING around the edges, it was the
perfect me anyways. :)
After I put the card together I used my I-rock and added gemstones all around.
Then I printed and cut pieces from my Lori's Garden cartridge and I
assembled the die cuts. I am so happy with the results and I love
the detail in the Whitewash papers!

Oh and I have been WAITING to share this project! :)
I had to wait 90 days because it was in a magazine, so here it is! :)
I made this Dinosaur Magnet set for my boys with the Core'dinations
Vintage Collection paper and the Dino Roar papers!
I love how much detail the Vintage paper gave the dinosaurs!!!
I ran it all through my Cricut and use a magnetic backing. My boys
LOVE this project and they still use the magnets!

I cannot believe how many times
I reach for my Core'dinations and never even realize it. I actually found over 35
projects with "Core" on them.

Thats it for me today, I hope you enjoyed my "frenzy" LOL!
I am off to prep for tonight! :)
Thank YOU for popping by to say hi!
