Last Day with Core and Petaloo!

Happy Friday!

We're so sorry to be saying toodaloo to our partnership 
with Core and Petaloo! 

But, we have some great stuff to show you today 
as our 'send off'!! 

Let's dive right in! 

First up is Michelle -- 

She used one of my favorite sets 'Core of it' 


Check out this cute card from 
Kari - 

I like how Kari used the flowers in the clouds
Total genius! 

Of course, Kari used 'Scootin' By'! 

I made a couple cards too! 

I love that Pattern Craze! It works so well with 
so many different themes - projects - cards! 

I used it this time with a sentiment 
from 'It's a Man's World' and 
it made for a great Congrats card! 
Don't-cha think! 

I also made a bit of a shaker card using 
some old packaging - check it out! 

Here is how I did it -- 

Here's the tricky part - you'll wanna make 
the 'confetti' two sided so, cut up the pencils 
and cut your pencil stamp so that it's just 
one pencil ( see above ) - then carefully 
(it's easy!) stamp it on the back of each 
pencil... color and bam! You have two 
sided confetti! 

I did the same thing with the apples
and I cut out some Hexagons from 
the 'Shape-tastic' die set - and it 
turned out super cute!

Today is the last day for you to 
enter to win some goodies for this week
