Tuesday Tip

Our Tuesday Tip comes from our very own Melissa Oliveira. She is sharing this cute pumpkin layout. Take a few minutes and look at the amazing details….the subtle sanding, the embossed paper piecing, the photo mounted with the Vintage cardstock, the scored leaves and the fun paper curls!

ALL this and NO patterned paper. Just gorgeous.

Core’dinations used: Cosmo Cricket and Jillibean Soup Core Impressions, Core Essentials, Vintage Cardstock.

Melissa shared her tip for making the paper curls with us today. Just cut a strip of paper (scraps work really well for this) and curl it around a pencil like this:

Squeeze it fairly tight so it takes shape…

And Voila! You have fun curly piece of paper to add to your projects. AND the sky is the limit with these…you can sand them or even emboss them to add some added texture to your project.

Have a creative day!

    What a great layout and such a beautiful little girl. Nice job Melissa

  5. @Grandmom: no paper piecing template was used for this layout, just good ol’ fashion paper and scissors! try creating your own template on scrap paper first then trace it onto the back of your Core’dinations cardstock before cutting/embossing/sanding, etc. :) melissa
