Happy Friday!
Today we have Kim Moreno!
Here is a little bit about Kim:

Hi y’all! My name is Kim Moreno and I am excited to once again be joining the Core team!

I am a mom of 5 kids ranging from 17 to 11 year old twins… 3 boys and 2 girls! You will see them show up all over the pages I create. I have been married for almost 20 years to my retired Air Force husband. I am currently living in a small town in Texas and my husband works out of town so all of the daily life activities (and there are many!) are left to me… so to say my world is a little busy would probably be an understatement! I also work part time as a preschool teacher at my church during the school year and I am the director for VBS for my church as well.

I have been scrapping for around 10 years now and have had the privelage to have been published in all the major magazines and have had several covers as well. I have worked for many popular manufacturers and kit clubs over the years. I enjoy scrapbooking and recording the everyday memories of my life. I am also a big cardmaker! I currently design for the Gossamer Blue kit club and PSA Essentials stamps.

Check out my blog here:

And Kim gave us a description of super cool 8.5×11″ layout…keep reading!
I trimmed the Basic Grey Ornate paper to 8.5”x11 and sand it slightly. Then I used my Scor-Pal to emboss lines around the edge of my layout, then I sanded them slightly to stand out. I backed my photo in the white cardstock and then adhered it onto more Basic Grey Ornate paper and sanded it all and then tore the edge to reveal the pink core. I tore another piece and layered it behind the first torn piece for a fun look. I then punched several different sized circles from the Ornate collection and layered them around my layout and added different colored brads and letter stickers to complete my layout!

And some details…love this idea of  the circles and brads with the Core Impressions. No embossing needed!
Core’dintions Core Impressions- Basic Grey Ornate and Whimsy collections
Core’dinations Core Essentials (snowflake and french roast)
Simple Stories brads embellishments
Scor Pal
Jillibean Soup letter stickers
Marvy Uchida and Martha Stewart punches
How about a winner of the Darks Collection pack?
