Spellbinders and Core’dinations Blog Swap

Welcome to the Spellbinders™ and Core'dinations® Blog Swap!


This week Spellbinders™ has teamed up with our Core’dinations Color Core
Cardstock® to showcase the wonderful ways our products work together!



Here's a gift box that I made for the hop featuring Spellbinder's S4-351 Spiral Blossoms One Die Template and Core’dinations Core Impression Jenni Bowlin Studio Collection: Everyday. I thought I'd make a great little catcher for all of my daughter's pencils that she leaves laying around the house no that school is back in session:)


Sophistication, value and maximum versatility make Spellbinders™ die
templates #1. Beautiful Details Inspiring Creativity…Spellbinders unique
triple function die templates allow you to cut, emboss, and then stencil
through the die template for unlimited possibilities. The Spellbinders Grand
Calibur® machine and Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities™ die templates cut and
emboss up to 11¾”, taking die cutting to grand proportions. Follow
 Spellbinders on Facebook, Twitter
and the Spellbinders Blog!





Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock is the only sandable cardstock with a
color core. Sand it, tear it, emboss it and so much more! The Core
Essentials line comes in over 160 colors with matching color families.

Or
maybe you are looking for something a bit more contrasting like the Black
Magic or Chocolate Box collections. The sandable core will shine through the
unique black and brown colors once it is sanded.

Core’dinations has also
teamed up with industry leading companies such as Pink Paislee, BasicGrey,
Graphic 45 and more to create new and unique pre-embossed cardstock that
perfectly accents their patterned papers.



But there is more! Check out Core’dinations website for the new Cardmaker
Series, Kraft-Core and various other wonderful cardstock lines.
