BasicGrey Special Guest : Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock

Today we’re thrilled to welcome our friends from Core’dinations to the BG blog.  We’ve partnered with them to create two exclusive collections of BasicGrey cardstock.  You can learn more about Core’dinations on their blog and Facebook page.

Good Morning!

Thank you so much for having us on the BasicGrey Blog. Today we wanted to share with you a layout using some BasicGrey Core Impressions but before we do that, we wanted to tell you a little bit about our cardstock and how excited we are to have teamed up with BasicGrey for some truly unique and beautiful cardstock.

Core’dinations Colorcore Cardstock is unique because it is the only sandable ColorCore Cardstock!  The BasicGrey Core Impressions comes in two unique collections: Whimsy and Ornate. Each Exclusive collection of BasicGrey designs is embossed on Core’dinations 12×12 cardstock and comes in an assorted pack consisting of four embossed patterns in five colors totaling 20 unique sheets in each pack.  (Specific sheets also sold in open stock, please see our website for more details). The Whimsy Collection is a great collection to mix and match with the whimsical products from BasicGrey and the Ornate Collection will go with any of the gorgeous BasicGrey Designs.

SUPPLIES : [OUT OF PRINT] OUT-3327 Odds ‘n Ends, OUT-3315 Reprint, OUT-3316 Etchings, [BITTERSWEET] MET-1554 Glazed Brads, [MARJOLAINE] MRJ-2929 Sticker Alphabet.

If you love to sand, tear and have fun with paper than you will love our cardstock! And, of course, it’s easy to mix and match with your favorite BasicGrey designs as you can see from this layout from Core’dinations Design Team Member Andrea Amu.  Andrea  mixed and matched the Whimsy and Ornate collections beautifully. She cut out and sanded the gorgeous doily patterns from the Cornbread cardstock in the Ornate collection in both Antique Vanity (Whitewash) and Aegan (Core Essentials) and accented them with a BasicGrey brad.  Andrea anchors the layout with a piece of Simon cardstock from the Whimsy collection (Black Magic) and two sheets of Marabelle from the Ornate collection. Pair those with all the beautiful Out of Print patterned papers and accents and you have one fabulous layout!

Are you getting the idea on how to mix and match Cored’dinations and your favorite BasicGrey products?  We sure hope so because we want to give away some of our cardstock!  Just comment below and let us know what you love best about Core’dinations and BasicGrey teaming up for some beautiful cardstock!  We’ll select two commenters at random to win.  One will win an Ornate Collection pack and the other will win a Whimsy Collection pack.  Comments must be posted by 11:59p MST.

I both of them but would probably use Whimsy more since the colors are brighter.. perfect for layouts of my little boy. I have almost all the other Core’dinations packs.. LOOOVE THEM!!
And since Basic Grey is one of my absolute fave scrap companies, this is PERFECT! I can’t wait til they are available in store!

  1. Oh Wow! I love both companies’ products and this is a wonderful marriage! Can’t wait to get my hands on these!!! The colors are amazing that the textures are just a fantastic added bonus!

  2. Love both Core’dinations and Basic Grey. This combination of impressions papers are just wonderful. I get so inspired when I see them

  3. Fantastic! This is a winning combination. Love the embossed papers for dimension. Thanks for the chance :)

  4. I have just started using the Core’dinations cs…and I just love Basic Grey, so this is so exciting to see! Love both collections!

  5. I love these papers. The ability to pack them for a crop and not worry about needing to emboss first or pack the Spellbinder up is fantastic! Have you all tried Pan Pastels on them yet?
