We LOVE sketches….do you?

Since February is the month of LOVE…we thought, why not share of love of sketches with everyone?!?!?!

A HUGE thank you to designer Lydia Jackson for creating this sketch for us.  It’s got everything you need to create a gorgeous layout, don’t you agree?

Now let’s see Lydia’s layout. Don’t you love the tone on tone sanding for the journaling block? And the label journal strips are such an easy way to ensure you get those memories on the page, too.  For tips on how to create those check out the video here. And accenting the hearts along the bottom with one embossed, sanded heart is the perfect accent. SO many possibilities with this sketch.

Now…it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t give something away now would it???

We would LOVE to give one person a Core prize pack for completing this challenge. Link your layout or card back to THIS post  or Share it on our FACEBOOK page by February 28th, 2013. It must be visible that you used the sketch as inspiration. You must use Core’dinations Cardstock  on the project and at least ONE Core technique. For some inspiration, HERE is a list to our technique videos.  You know we LOVE anything that shows off the cool Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock!

    Loved this sketch and it worked perfectly for my vacation photos. I used 3 types of Core (chocolate box, kraft core, and signature series) and 2 techniques (embossing and sanding)


    thanks for letting me play along.

    I saw Lydia’s layout on Facebook not realizing it was part of your challenged. I loved it and decided to make one for myself is her design. I used Core’dinatioins for the hearts, sanding some and not others. I also used Core’dinations with my dymo label maker. http://debbysdares.blogspot.com/2013/02/feathers-scrapbook-page.html?m=1

    Well here is mine! I turned the sketch and used a single larger photo. I embossed and sanded some of my Core pieces and sanded the edges on others. I also used Core for the large title letters and sanded the edges of those.
