It's Bliss When You Work With Core-dinations & GlueArts!!



We're back with Day Two of our promotion with Core-dinations Color Core Carstock!


Core-dinations is known for their color-core cardstock which gives you the freedom to sand off edges and designs to reveal a color core! You can sand it, tear it and emboss it! There are endless possibilities for creating with their unique products!

Core-dinations cardstock is not only beautiful but ever so fun to work with!

And fun (and beautiful) is the name of the fame today with Designers Grace Tolman and Kristen Swain's projects! Our GlueArts Ribbon Adhesive and U Cut It Foam are key to helping them create!

  83. Welcome Jaime & Tamara! Kristen's Bliss Autumn card is such a different twist on Fall cards because of the yellow textured c/s with the green and brown. Love the softness of it and the pumpkin is fabulous. Doesn't get much better than Cracker Barrel for an adorable scrapbook page ~ great job! Thanks for the chance to win a Core Impressions pack and Glue Glider Pro.
