Still remember when I chance upon Core'dinations Cardstock in a local scrap shop 5 or 6 years back; I was so in excited to have some fun with such unique paper. Sand, tear emboss!! Really?? Wow this paper is awesome. So I picked up a few sheets and there was no turning back.
For the benefit of those new to Core'dinations......Check out this picture below. With a little sanding you turned a piece of simple pink cardstock to a vava boom background! Cool right? Well well the coolness doesn't stop there...you can tear, emboss, distress and so much more!
Now back to the main purpose of this post before I side track too much :) Below are my creations for the application to be part of the design team.
First submission...a layout with lots of sanding and and distressing. Don't you just love distressing on Core'dinations cardstock? It gives the background so much texture. Simply AMAZING. Yeah that's the word...AMAZING!
Actually, this is not my usual style of scrapping but hey that's the beauty of Core'dinations cardstock. They are so easy to take on...A simple technique of sanding and clever use of (Tim Holtz and The Crafter's Workshop) stencils, you get awesome flawless results.

But since now that I'm applying for a position to the design team, I figured I should be showcasing what I love about Core'dinations. Agree?
Before you scroll down, do take note how just one sanding technique allows such variations and flexibility on the background......
