Core'dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors & a give-away!








{Reported by Ashley Harris}

Happiness!! That is the word that comes to mind when I saw the new Stacy Julian Happy Colors pack by Core'dinations. Truly, it just makes you happy. Much like the lady, Stacy herself. If you know Stacy, she is very much a color person and makes everything so bright and cheery! Well let me tell you, it did just that for me. Let's get started.

This paper pack includes 20 sheets of 12x12 embossed cardstock. It is their lovely color core cardstock that you can distress! Love that!

What I liked:
- I liked that it gives you so much texture.
- The embossing is phenomenal on these and the possibilities are endless what you can do with it.
- The papers co-ordinate with each other so you can make multiple projects with it.



What I didn't like:
-Only one thing. I would like them to be loose rather than in a pad format.

*Please note that the worded sheets are available individually.

What I made:


Supplies: Cardstock: Core'dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors pack; Button and Hemp misc. Punch: Fiskars





Supplies: Cardstock: Core'dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors Pack; Flowers and sentiment: GCD Studios; Stamp: Technique Tuesday; Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft





Supplies: Cardstock: Core'dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors Pack; Rub-ons: Pebbles; Punches: EK Sucess; Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft





Where and How Much:
Product: Stacy Julian Happy Colors Core Impressions pack
Manufacturer: Core'dinations
Look for it soon at a retailer near you!

Bottom line this just screams HAPPY!! I love it!!

I love embossed cardstock. Coredinations is great.

Diana said...

Yes I would love to use this cardstock. I like my background cardstock/paper to have a little something extra, and this is ideal for my scrapping style.

Angela Fehr said...

While I like Coredinations card stock, I've never purchased the embossed kind - it's intriguing, though!

I would LOVE that CS! Gorgeous colors and the embossing is fabulous.

I saw this earlier on another blog! I love it! I think it would be so much fun to play with!

The embossing is what draws me to this. I can find plenty of plain cardstock just about anywhere. Can't wait to find this somewhere locally.

I've loved Core'dinations products for awhile now, and adding Stacy to the mix is just fabulous! Love her happy designs.

Carol said...

This is gorgeous! Will be on the lookout to find this at my LSS.

Court said...

I love those happy colors! I have found myself needing bright colors for the summer and haven't had them in my stash, so I think it's fabulous.

I do have their nostalgia line and love the earthy classic colors as well.

Thanks for the review! I will go check out their blog!

I love Core'dinations cardstock! I never tried their pre-embossed paper, but that would add a lot of spice to my LOs. Thanks for the review!

TinaM said...

I love the look of embossing but I don't have an embossing machine so this product is PERFECT!

Lisa G. said...

Erika M. said...

I think embossed cardstock is a fabulous idea!

It's a great concept, esp. since I'm always embossing my own paper. I like the colors that were chosen and I can definitely see me using this product.

Co'redinations is awesome! I just discovered their cored cardstock at my Joann's, and the possibilities are amazing :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Gabi said...

I love embossed cardstock!! I've actually purchased some of the embossed Cor'dinations, and I've used so much of it up. I love sanding it. That really brings out the embossed look!!!

I would love to use this product when it comes out. I'm sure I'll be picking some up because Cor'dinations is my go to for solid cardstock.

I would love it if it came in a pack without the binding (in single sheets) like you said :)

CuddlyBunny said...

Whew! Man! I didn't know you could get pre-imbossed card stock! Brilliant!

I create a lot of 5x7 cards ... however no embossing folder are that size ... this pre-imbossed stuff would be perfect for those extra-large or extra-long bits you need. :)

Kelly Massman said...

Love everything you shared! I would love to win some of Core'dinations1 Thanks for the chance!

Disneypal said...

I have been trying to find a place that sells this from the moment I saw it! I love it so much - I guess the reason I can't find it is it isn't in stores yet - I can hardly wait! Thanks for sharing your project ideas.
