Blast From the Past

A few cards made from retired sets. However, some of these are amongst my favorites. I feel that any stamp set is worth purchasing & keeping if the theme is timeless & you love it.

A Reason to Smile

A few cards made using the special promotion stamp set offered in July. Enjoy.

Coordinate with CORE'DINATIONS


This new cardstock is fantastic!!! It comes in 3 colors (Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, & Gumball Green) and is smooth on one side, and textured (like our old textured cardstock) on the other side.
So, what is the big deal? 
The core of the cardstock is a lighter color!  When you use it with the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders--it is gorgeous!!!  You first emboss it, then you use the new "Sanding System" to sand it.  It really brings out the embossed image.

Another new product is the Core'dinations Dust Buddy.  This is a "tacky" cloth that will pick up all the debris from when you sand it.  Cleans it up beautifully--well worth using!

You can see on the pieces below that 1/2 of the piece has been sanded.  Notice how much it brings out the embossed design!

 And here is a card using the cardstock and also featuring the new stamp set:

I love all the coordinating FRAMELITS!!!  NO MORE CUTTING!!!
And even better--that you can purchase a bundle and get 15% off!
