This first creation was made by Laura Denison and it is out of this world! This amazing piece of holiday decor showcases a fantastic paper weaving technique that's easy and very beautiful. Here is what Laura had to say about this marvelous piece.

"Create a fun and fast frame for a favorite photo or image by weaving strips of Core'dinations card stock and patterned paper along the edges of a 12 x 12 piece of card stock. Mount the center image on foam mounting squares and add embellishments.  Super fast and easy!" -Laura Denison

Next we have these stunning cards by Melanie Forbes. The new Core Impressions Signature Series and Timeless Collection by Graphic 45 and Core'dinations are perfect for creating amazing cards such as these! They are so easy to use and so versatile. Your imagination will run wild with all sort of amazing ideas! Here is what Melanie had to say about these sweet craft creations.

"I love Graphic 45 and now that there is matching cardstock by Core’dinations along with inks and accessories it makes it so much easier to create something that completely coordinates together. Here I have simply embossed either the card set or sanded back the Core Impressions series with a G45 tag placed over the top with May Arts ribbon to finish off. Inking all edges with the G45 Decades ink makes the cards look professional." -Melanie Forbes

Next up is this elegant all-occasions card by Lynette Carroll. This gorgeous and super inspiring creation is another great example of what you can create when you pair up Graphic 45 and Core'dinations! Here is what Lynette had to say about this dreamy work of art.

"I wanted to create a card with the beautiful Le' Romantique Collection that could be used for more than one occasion.  The papers easily lend themselves to wedding and anniversary cards but I chose to use elements that could be used on a card that could be sent as a Thank You, Birthday or even a "Just Because" card.  Simply change the occasion for sending this card by using a rubon or stamped sentiment and tucking it into the roses".  To finish off the card I lightly brushed the centers of the roses with Frosted Lace stickles to add a "dewy" look o them." -Lynette Carroll
