I want to send everyone an invitation to join us on FACEBOOK today. We are having an AWESOME scavenger hunt. We are giving away free gift certificates every half hour starting at 7:00 until 9:00 central time. Free Product & a ton of FUN.... so don't miss out!!!

I cannot wait to show you guys the fab work of Pattie Beltran.
She is so talented and made some wonderful designs for us.

Pattie says...
I am the wife of a wonderful, supportive husband (he buys me scrap supplies on line- gotta love him!!) and am the mother to two fantastic kids. I have been scrapping for 12 years now- whew, how time flies!! I am part of the oh so fabulous My Little Shoebox design team and am currently teaching classes at Scrapbook U in Fremont, CA. I love all things scrapping and have been a paper lover since the first grade. I still remember my first encounter with beautiful, high quality paper- I was given a gift of a stack of thick, textured cream cardstock- it was love at first sight! I have been crafting ever since.

Ohhh how I plan on lifting this banner for my house as soon as I get some time.
She created this banner using our Kraft cardstock and our black 80# Basis.I soooo luv it !
Make sure to check out her blog for all the fab close ups she's got of this rockin banner.

For her next project she created this SWEET "Thinking of You Card"
She used our Stardream Magenta A7 folded invitation and our Curious iridescent 89# cover in Cryogen White.

Next her "Noel" card is soooo perfect for the upcoming Holidays.

and last but not least is this GORGEOUS wall hanging.

She took our Stardream Metallic 105# cover weight in Emerald and used the Martha Stewert border and corner punch.....WOW what a really spectacular project !

Thanks Pattie for all your hardwork and Fabulous creations !

I'll quickly post also the layout I created using some of the Jenni Bowlin that is up in store now.
If you do not have any of this fabulous cardstock make sure to head on over and pick some is just so much FUN to create with !

Have a Blessed and Creative Day,

Its Here.....Core'dinations is Here ! Jenni Bowlin and a Gift Certificate Giveaway

Ok well as you all know by now we have been super busy! Between the warehouse move, new server, new products and site changes. So what we decided to do is ask for your help. We are going to give away a $25.00 store Gift Certificate (great way to get some of the new Core'dinations). All you simply have to do is hunt and find any site mistakes. Email the links to me at :
In one week I will pick one lucky winner. Super easy !
So you have till the 21st I than will post who the winner is by using the random generator that week.

Yay I am so excited to have recieved and in stock now the Core'dination line.

Linda Beeson one of our Fabulous Guest Designers was kind enough to send us her GORGEOUS creations using Core'dinations.

In this card she used the Vintage Lemonade that can be found in the Mod Squad Assortment pack. Look how sweet it is ! She embossed it,punched the edges and sanded it down to give it a vintage appeal.

In this card she used the Black Magic "Whamy"(purple/black) color. You can purchase this color in multiple individual sheets or you can purchase the Hocus Pocus Assortment pack that will include the "Whamy" (purple/black) color along with 20 other gorgeous dual color sheets.
Linda also punched and sanded the purple side. On the black side she embossed it than sanded it down to expose the purple underside. It really turned out just GORGEOUS!

Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP.... Oh my goodness! Look what Linda made using the Jenni Bowlin Collection. With 4 embossed patterns and 5 colors for each pattern you will not be needing any creative mojo other than this Beautiful pack. I just pulled a pack for myself and can't wait to play with it !!!!

Here are a few layouts I created using Core'dinations.
In this layout I used the Ruby in the Vintage line that can be found in the Mod Squad Assortment pack.

and on this layout I used the Tropical Orchid that can be found as well in the Mod Squad Assortment pack. As well as the Whitewash Weather Vane exposing the dual side by tearing it.

Have a Creative and Blessed Day!
