I had a couple of errands to run yesterday and while I was out I needed to buy more adhesive with my 40% coupons. I stopped in at JoAnn's, grabbed my adhesive, and was headed towards the register when I noticed their 12 x12 card stock is 16 cents per sheet this week. I normally ignore this aisle, but I need kraft card stock now that it is back in vogue. No luck finding it, but I noticed some open stock paper I knew was not Bazzill nor DCWV, and it was...Core'dinations!!! Can you believe it? I grabbed 3 sheets...I know, big spender, right? I just wanted to try it out, and JoAnn's has a rainbow of colors in this amazing paper. I try not to buy online unless I can't buy it at Michael's, JoAnn's, ACMoore, or Hobby Lobby with a 40% coupon, and even then it needs to be a good price. So I have resisted the urge to buy Core'dinations, and now I can get it anytime I want, and just 2 miles from my house. Wahoo!!!
This is my first card using Core'dinations (check 'em out..."Black Magic" is particularly scrummy!) If you are not familiar with it, this is why it is so special: the core is not the same color (like Bazzill) nor is it white (like DCWV). It comes in varied colors. So just sand or tear it to unveil the yummy colors hidden beneath the texture. I sanded the papers to reveal the core color.
My base card (red) is DCWV; the easel is a 3D sticker by Make it Special (Dollorama); the sentiment is CTMH; and the circle, scallop circle, and dimensionals are all Stampin' Up!
