My Core’dinations Creative Frenzy

I’ve been crafting up a storm here with Core’dinations colored cardstock, and wanted to share with you what I’ve been up to!

This cardstock is awesome for so many projects because it comes in great colors and the color goes all the way through the core of the paper – no white lines when cutting!

I made this checkerboard in fun colors to play checkers with my games-loving preschooler.  It was simple to make, learn how to make this checkerboard.

I love simple projects, so I cross stitched a heart card. It took less than 30 minutes, and I love that there are no white circles around the holes I poked for stitching!

You know how much I love to quilt, so I quilted up and framed this Americana Quilt block with the Core’dinations papers. The distressing… the topstitching… I LOVE how it turned out!!

Have you had a chance to play with these papers? What would you make?

ps – This post is a response to a Design Team Call by Core’dinations. If I get the gig, I might be doing some fun videos… if you haven’t already seen my love for video crafting, you should check out my other project –!

  2. I adore that stitched card – super cute!

  3. Love these! They are all so unique too. I love how they all so totally represent you, yet who wouldn’t love them. Unique, yet Universal, I’m trying to say…not sure if that is reading like i mean it. 🙂 Great job!

  4. Of course you would come up with a fantastic “quilt” to frame! I love how it turned out! I’m also loving the checkers set, thinking my nephew would love something like this!

  5. Cute!! What great ideas for cardstock. I’ll have to try the checkers with the kids over Spring Break. They’d love it.
