Tuesday Tip From Melissa Oliveira

We have some fun tips from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Even though these layouts have a summer theme to them doesn’t mean you can’t use these tips for any project.

First up Melissa stamped on her Whitewash for this journaling. If you have used our cardstock before, you know it gets a bit dusty  when you sand it. First up, you really should have a Sand it Gadget to make your sanding easy. After that, you want to use our Dust Buddy.

The Dust Buddy is a unique cloth that does many things, including cleaning the sanding residue so your adhesives can stick better. One additional thing it does is make your stamped images crisper and cleaner as seen on Melissa’s layout here. If you sanded this Whitewash and didn’t use a Dust Buddy,  the stamped imaged wouldn’t be as great.  So make sure you tell your favorite Core’dinations Cardstock retailer to get some Dust Buddies. They go a long way, too!

And here is another example of a layout where Melissa stamped over some Graphic 45 Core Impressions. And of course, how cool are those torn waves in the Whitewash????
