AND this!
Speaking of Fancy Pants Core Impressions….Jill Lebbin used hers for this cute mini album page:

Hi! I’m Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a project I made using the Xyron mega runner and Core’dinations Fancy Pants Core Impressions and pink Vintage cardstock. I also used some Authentique patterned paper. My daughter turned two recently and so we got her two year old pictures taken. I just adored this one and had to create a mini album page layout.

Fancy Pants Details

As mentioned before, I used the Xyron Mega tape runner. Even though it is called a “mega” tape runner it isn’t so mega that it is obtrusive to your crafting. Actually, I love the size of the mega tape runner. I also love the refill system, so simple and quick! Thank you Xyron!!!

In this layout I used the Fancy Pants Core impression paper for the photo frame, and then I sanded it. The pick accents are the Core’dinations Vintage Collection. I cut out the accents using my Silhouette Cameo.

And next up Designer Ava Gavloski with an amazing project for us today, too!

Party Favors have truly taken center stage at parties and has given the cake a nudge. So, today, I would like the two too share the spot light together.
Lets start with quality Xyron Adhesive and the best cardstock on the market…Coredinations!

You need some GREAT adhesive for this. Have you ever made a project like this and then the next day it’s all popped apart?  Not with Xyron. This beauty is still going strong!

Now, look at how lovely the Couture Creations Embossing folder showcases the Core’dinations inner colored cardstock.

Adding some Graphic 45 papers to the top of the cake was a delight. To complete the bridal presentation I made a card and decorated a candle holder to match the festive occasion.

And a layout from Designer Kim Moreno!

Here’s how Kim created this layout:

 I used my ScorPal again to create the border around the edge of my layout and then sanded it slightly. I then sanded and cut out the ledger cardstock and adhered it to the center of the black cardstock. I matted my photo with the red cardstock and tore it along the bottom to reveal the colored core of the red cardstock. I cut out the clocks and sanded each of them to reveal the kraft core.  Then layered my photos and embellishments to finish my layout.

Stickers: Jillibean Soup (yellow “joy”)
