Spotlight: Core'dinations

Have some in your stash?  Not using the uber cool cardstock to its full potential?  I stumbled onto this blog when I was looking for ideas and love the clean lines of her work.  My favorite post is this "year of techniques" in which she writes,
"I have noticed from the Sitemeter thingy at the bottom of my blog that there are a lot of people cruising the internet right now looking for ideas on how to use Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock.
Back in May of this year, I taught a class to retailer's at a warehouse in Ottawa, ON, Canada. They were in the same boat as many of you...looking for ideas to get themselves and their customers fired up about using Core'dinations.
Core'dinations is unique in the sense that it has a coordinating colour core and can be torn, sanded and antiqued. There is nothing better when you want to emboss either. Sanding can really enhance the embossing process.
The mini-album was designed to be hung in the area of their stores where Core'dinations is sold. There were no photos or journaling. Each page could be used as inspiration for a layout, card or altered project.
I hope you get some inspiration from it as well."
Hop on over to her blog HERE or check out the year of techniques HERE!

And here is a share of a layout using Jillibean Soup's Monster Stew and Core'dinations Black Magic cardstock (black cardstock with a color core).  Scored a border on the cardstock and sanded it.
