Thursday Layouts

 

Happy Thursday! Today we have some gorgeous projects for you! I mean, don’t we always? ;)

First up Designer Gail Linder and a beautiful display of our Pastel Core Essentials Collection Pack

 I love fun color combinations! For this layout I had a special story to tell and a couple of photos that I converted to black and white so I could use a soft color scheme to match the overall “feel” of the layout. So of course, my first stop was the pastel cardstock collections for some soft pinks, aquas and yellow.

I used a simple grid design, adding cardstock squares the same size as my photos. I then had fun embellishing each cardstock block with – you guessed it – more cardstock! But when I added the layers on top, I embossed, sanded and distressed them to make them stand out and add dimension!

For a scrapper like me that LOVES distressed edges, Core’dinations cardstock sure makes that easy! With minimal effort (ie. just a light sand), your edges are DONE! I even sanded the tiny scallop edge and die cut letters!

My little girl started school this year and (I’m sure all Mothers would agree) that it was quite an emotional time! The night before the first day of school, I wrote her a letter that I hope she’ll read and appreciate in years to come. As the journaling was quite long, I added a flap to the cardstock blocks so they lift up to reveal the journaling underneath! Fun!

And another layout from Designer Debbie Standard. How much do you LOVE this color combo????
I made this page of my daughter’s bff’s new baby.  I’m scrapping for him because he’s just so adorable and I’m honorary grandma.  I started with a sheet of basic Core in grey.  I really like the more rustic used look of some of the Core when I have sanded down so that some of the white shows through.  Then I added a sheet of the black dotted core which I also sanded and matted with blue.  I added some yellow which I embossed bu only lightly sanded over the dot part of the embossing.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to punch a border which I then sanded.  I used a Spellbinder’s die to make my flower.

    I have a product questions and tried your “contact” form – but it wouldn’t submit my question. I purchased some core’dination premium textured card stock product GX-2200-39 at Jo-Anns. I was about to use it when I noticed that it says the paper is ACID FREE – but nowhere does it say that it is LIGNIN FREE. Please let me know if this paper is lignin free. If not, what paper do you recommend for scrapbooking?

  5. Gorgeous page Gail – love it!
