Warning Long

This post is going to be long with a lot of poor quality photos since it is after 11 p.m.when I took these.
This week I played along with the Coredinations online crop.
Here is what I did for each challenge.

Day 1 July 17th
1. Lydia -Ad challenge – Chocolate Box
For this page I kept it fairly simple and used the colors and shapes found in the ad.
2. Kim -Trendy things- White wash
For this page I used all the trendy stuff. I even made my own chevrons using the how-to here
3. Char -Antiquing- Core Essentials
I crumpled up the half circles on this page to give the paper an antique look.
4. Debbie – Cardstock only- Core Essentials
This page I used only core cardstock.
5. Jennifer -Strip It- Challenge- Core-prize pack
I used paper stripes I embossed to cover this frame.
6. Melissa-handmade embellishment challenge- Vintage Cardstock
I created the folded flowers for this simple card
7. Andrea- Core Die Cut challenge – Core Cuts
I actually used my Cricut to cut the die cuts. I think I am going to have to use my little bug more. I love it. 
Day 2 July 18th
8. Lydia- Color Challenge – Spotted Collection
When I saw the colors for this challenge my mind went to Christmas. So I created this card using no Christmas theme products. 
9. Ellen – Pinterest Challenge – Glitter Silk
I love the grid pattern and the big photo I used to covr up the not so perfect grid lines. 
11. Debbie- All Cardstock Challenge – Core Amour
 On this page I only used core cardstock but I also add stickers for the title.
12. Cari – scoring challenge- Tim Holtz Kraft Core
 I scored those three different black pieces differently.
13. Kristine – sketch – Core Prize pack
 I kept this page true to the sketch.
Can you believe it I did all these different projects with only two different Coredinations card pads. Black Magic and Cosmo Cricket Classics.
