It must be your lucky day!!

Woohoo!  It was my lucky day! Core'dinations sent me some of their new Tim Holtz kraft-core cardstock to test out, and sent some extra for me to give away!  But that isn't all!  I'm also giving you the chance to win a Chomas Creations engraving tip for either the Silhouette Cameo or Cricut, your choice!  The coolest part is what an awesome job the Chomas Creations engraving tip does on the Core'dinations papers!  If you want to see more of what I've done with it, you can see tons of them here... Chomas Creations & Core'dinations!  I'm going to have to say the new kraft-core is my absolute fav of the bunch!! 
Check out what I did with the Chomas Creations engraving tip for the Silhouette Cameo on the kraft-core cardstock!  If you pay attention to my blog, you will know how much I love kraft!  I'm in kraft heaven here!  And the pack of paper sent to me has 24 different colors!  So you have a chance at that as well!!!!  I used the speed of 6 and pressure of 33 and a double cut to get this look.  Then I use a brillo pad to gently rub over the design, this smooths the design and makes it pop!  The design is the shamrock lace from Studio.

The title is also from the Studio store called pinch proof phrase.

And of course what kind of page would this be without one of my journaling circles, hehe!  You can get the download for these here... journaling circles
I added a bit of ribbon and my pictures and this page is DONE! 



So are you ready to give this a try???  Your chance to win a Chomas Creations engraving tip and the Core'dinations kraft-core cardstock is right here!  Leave a comment on what you would do with Chomas Creations engraving tip and the Core'dinations cardstock!  Only one try per person please!  I will draw a winner sometime 3-25!

I just ordered using the coupon code, thank you so much! I'm really looking forward to trying these new holders out. :) :) :) I'm really excited to try the engraving tip to make door hangers for my children... that cardstock would be totally rad to work with! Happy St. Patricks Day!

llurgy said...

OOOOH.......I think I would use the Kraft-Core for adding some dimension to cards I have to send overseas. It would really add some great dimensions without adding the bulk that mailing such a long way doesn't deal with well when sending greetings cards overseas, they always end up smushed, this would be a great alternative.

I love your St Patricks Layout, it's cute :)

Amy, I'm working on items for my granddaughters upcoming June wedding. I've been using my Silhouette for shower and wedding favors, decorations, invitations etc. so the engraving tip and papers would come in very handy. I wanted to engrave the couples initials on some fan programs I'm creating.

Esmé said...

I love what you're doing with the core'dinations cardstock and the engraving tip. I never would have imagined that that was possible with a cutting machine.

Marilyn said...

I think I'm as addicted to kraft paper as you are, Amy! I'd love to try that engraving tip on my Silhouette...it's such a cool look.

Belinda said...

The kraft paper & engraving tool would be perfect for adding texture & fun to some projects I'm working on for a good friend's baby shower.

krafting kelly said...

Well, I'd do exactly what you did, of course! I would love to try an engraving tip on the kraft-core cardstock for full-page scrapbook layouts or on smaller bits for cards and such. This is really cool!

Myoriah said...

I love the combination of the paper and the engraving tip. Thank you for the chance to win both. I would have so much fun doing backgrounds for cards. As well as engraving shapes and then rubbing chalk over them.

Karen said...

I would love to win to learn yet another thing I can do with my new cameo!! You are an inspiration!!

scoobie81 said...

Steph said...

I have only had my Cameo for a couple of months, but am having so much fun making things. I would put the kraft-core cardstock and engraving tip to great use. I'm already starting on Christmas gifts and I want to incorporate as many different techniques, textures, papers, etc, into the cards and gifts I make as possible.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Donna said...

I would love to try to engrave crowns around the edges of a princess layout page.

I'm loving your pen & marker holders! I have a new great niece or nephew coming. I'm thinking I would need to use the engraving tip to welcome that sweet baby!

sodell said...

I love what you did with the engraving tip, and I think I would do scroll-type borders, flourishes, and fancy backgrounds for my card fronts. I love how this looks! Awesome! -Stacy

Kris Whittaker said...

I love kraft as well! Neat ideas using the engraving tip...I would've never thought of that! I could do some cool designs for cards using both. I have both the Cricut and the Eclips...any plans to make your products for the Eclips in the future?

Thanks for the great prizes and the chance to win!

Missynme said...

The engraving looks greatI definitely would do a card for Fathers' Day, and it would also be great for some of our beach or camping vacation photos. The card stock has a very organic feel to it.

Monica Gilliland said...

I'm fairly new to all of this and just received your adjustible pen holder for the cricuit. I love, love , love it! I adore core'dinations paper and this is the first I've heard of the kraft-core paper, but would love to try it out in a scrapbook I'm making for my brother's wedding (he's getting it as a first anniversary gift). Thanks so much Amy!

Xena said...

Ohhh, I would love that engraving tip - that would give such good results - I do some embossing by hand - but this would be so much more intricate! Really considering purchasing one of your holders and gel pens :)

tonya said...

I need to make a card for my friends wedding. I would use the engraving tip for that. Thanks for the chance to win!

I have many, many layouts to work on w/ the engraving tip and the core craft cardstock. K

Lynn Mooney said...

Wow...this paper will be fantastic in the creation of my heritage album. I can hardly wait to see the results.

Liz said...

I'd hunt down every bit of info on engraving I could find first - I hate making mistakes on my precious Core' ... and I love that paper pad !

whitneymaryann said...

Sounds like a great new tool for the Silhouette. Imagine it could add great design without bulking up cards that go into a traditional envelope for mailing.

Anonymous said...

I love that Kraft core cardstock. It looks so cool. It would go so well with so many new lines out there....And that engraving technique? Wow. So cool. Gotta try that somehow .... sometime....

AmyJ said...

Very neat layout Amy. I love all that you did here. I unfortunately do not have a cricut or a silhouette. I really want one but its not in the budget. But if I were to win I would use the cardstock for making my cards. Thanks for the chance.

I would love to use the engraving tip and the Kraft Paper to make cards. I love dimensional backgrounds. I also love trying new things, this being one, too

Linda said...

I think it would be amazing to use the Kraft Core paper along with the engraving tips to create unique papers with dimension for cards and scrap pages without adding too much bulk to them.

Caryn S said...

OMG my head is reeling! What wouldn't I do with these? I was just thinking today how neat it would be to emboss any background pattern on CS without needing an embossing plate and machine! SOOOOO cool!

Annette Riebe said...

I’m ordering my Cameo TONIGHT! Now I’m anxious to test it out and see what all I can do with it!

Debby said...

I would use it to emboss pages for my dads scrapbook I am working on, more than likely it would be antique cars of some sort. I want to finish the book for my mom.
Thanks for the chance.

Thanks for the chance to win. I would use the engraving tool for all the score lines on boxes and bags, and for adding that extra zing to cards. Awesome stuff!!

Karen S. said...

I would love to use the engraving tip to make backgrounds for layouts like you did! I'm limited currently with my Cuttlebug and the A2 folders I have - not big enough for a whole background. Thanks for the chance to win this and the awesome cardstock! I love Core'dinations!

I would love to engrave an elaborate butterfly and ornate grillwork on a scrapbook page that might be difficult to cut. That kraft core paper sounds good. Would love the engraving tip.

Karen in Upstate SC said...

WOW! That's sooo cool! We are taking a family trip to Gettysburg in June (will be the first time there for hubby & me) with our son & his family. Am putting together SMASH book kits for my two granddaughters to work on during our trip. Am pre-making titles, die-cuts, etc. with my Cricut for them to use in their SMASH books. The kraft core paper would definitely add to the vintage feel of their pages!!! I can see using the same technique to make titles as well as die-cuts. So cute! Thanks for the inspiration!!!!

Beth F. said...

That paper looks like so much fun! I have been using more and more kraft cardstock lately, so it would coordinate with a lot that I create.

Kristi said...

Backgrounds for layouts designed in my Gypsy.

Becky said...

Very anxious to try engraving tip and kraft core cardstock. I'm thinking about engraving different desigins and different colors of kraft core then cut into strips for maybe a woven pattern. Easter basket across bottom of page and pic of the day cut into oval shapes in the basket.

I would like to try to make backgrounds.
