Prima Doodle Deux and Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit so much. All the reds and yellows just make me happy. The Prima Doodle Duex is one of my new favorite lines for sure!

I have another layout, too! :)

I cut up the doodle chipboard piece and did some stamping.
See that little "xoxo" I used the Sentimental Birds stamp set and took that cute little 
"xoxo" and bent it along my acrylic block to go along with the curves of the chipboard and just repeatedly stamped. 

Some more deets...

I used two SSS stamps on this layout and here they are. I LOVE mixing and matching sets.

Hard Core Crop Challenge #9

Are you having fun at our very FIRST Hard Core Crop?!??!!?!?!?

The Master Challenge list is here. And we are chatting away here on Facebook. FUN FUN FUN!

My Challenge is all about Pinterest! If you love it as much as we do then check out our Boards here! We have one board called our Hard Core Projects board and that is where we pin projects from our Hard Core Fans that we LOVE!

So, naturally, I went there for my inspiration. I loved this layout from Rebecca Keppel. I have known Rebecca for a few years now. She has such a clean sense of style and, well, she just rocks! Check out her blog HERE for some more awesome projects!!! I love how she used the Core Impressions in the same pattern but different colors. And of course all that Sanding makes a Core girl like me HAPPY!

Here is the piece I lifted:

And Here is my layout. I LOVED the grid-like pattern. I am drawn to cleaner lines
and geometric shapes so you can see why I loved it so much!
Thanks, Rebecca!!!!

Remember to always Scor from the back. I scor'd two lines at 4" and then turned the Cardstock and did it again.

Now turn it over and sand! By scoring from the back, the raised lines are on the front to show off that gorgeous Core!

Next, I took some Glitter Silk, Core Essentials and Vintage cardstock and cut three, 3.5" squares.

Make sure you emboss and distress some! Our Glitter Silk Cardstock looks GORGEOUS embossed!!!!

So...for my challenge...I challenge you to head over to our Pinterest Boards and pick something that inspires you and create! If you don't have Pinterest, feel free to use this layout or head over to our Designer's Galleries and find something to lift.

You must post your challenge entry to the link here. You can do a layout..card...altered is the limit! Just use some Core'dinations Cardstock and follow the challenge guidelines. HAVE FUN!!!!

And I am giving away this! It is smooth, silky and cuts like butter!
I can't get enough of it!

May Arts Canvas

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Hope it is a good one! 
Today I have a project for you using May Arts Woven Burlap and fuzzy Pom Pom trim. I just wanted to create something fun and bright and had this in  my mind for some time. 

I also used my Xyron Sticker maker, Core'dinations Cardstock, Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps & Buttons, and Imaginisce i-Rock. 

I love altering frames and things like that but making canvases isn't something I normally do but when I saw this May Arts Burlap in all these gorgeous colors...I just new I had to make some kind of rainbow. It really malleable (can you use that word for ribbon? LOL!). I love that it has structure and can do pretty much what you want it to so that is why it curves, like a rainbow, so nicely.
