Mixing it up….

Happy Thursday everyone. Today’s post is about mixing our Core Impressions lines with patterned paper. The great thing about these paper packs is that they are cardstock yet they can work just like patterned paper.

For instance, this layout by Design Team Member Kandis Smith. Notice how she uses the Damask print from the Graphic 45 Timeless Core Impressions line.  She paired with some October Afternoon papers that have a completely different pattern. And check out that little strip of Gemstone. Perfect!

Also on this layout from our preferred partners: Queen & Co. Gemstones and Maya Road Chipboard.

And here is card from Kandis using the Stacy Julian Core Impressions dot cardstock. Who needs patterned paper when you’ve got this collection in your stash? Paired with the Graphic 45 tags and some Core Essentials, you’ve got a match made in heaven.

And one last example from Kandis. Check out this layout with the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions against the graphic prints!  And of course that cute smile doesn’t hurt 😉 We would love to see how you used your Core Impressions!!! Make sure you link us up on our Facebook page or in the comments here.

Have a GREAT week!

    Great projects. I especially like th last layout where the core’dinations cardstock is truly the star yet it sets off the rest of the layout perfectly.

    Love the first project where the
    coordination paper makes the page just
    pop out. Also the cards with the dots.
    Both great projects All are good just
    favor the first two.

    Love these. Now I have to ask because I have been seeing alot of the notebook edged paper/chipboard/cardstock. I think I saw a border punch somewhere???? Is that how everyone is creating these looks?
