Designer Layouts with Kim Moreno

Can you belive Christmas is over and in two days it will be 2014?  We thought it would be a cool idea to show you some layouts that focus on important days we celebrated in 2013 today. Kim Moreno has some layouts focusing on her kids and some milestones they celebrated this year. ENJOY!

 

With the rough background in this picture I knew the woodgrain Core Impression paper would be perfect for this layout. I chose the purple and navy to coordinate with the colors from the photo and then purple is their favorite color so I had to add that in there somehow! I wanted to keep the layout fairly simple to focus on this awesome photo of the two of them!
I sanded the background woodgrain paper to bring out the lighter color core of the paper. I then chose border punches that not only cut but had an embossed image as well and sanded them slightly and layered them for a fun look. I used an embossing folder to create the dots on the cut out heart.

EEEEK! I looove this big HUGE star!
This photo of my oldest son at the Texas State 7on7 tournament just pulls at my heart, this was the all seniors photo we took at the end of the tournament. Seriously, how can I have a senior already? He would say he loves this photo because it’s during the summer and he’s allowed to have to super, awesome, manly beard! ha!
I used my trusty Scor Pal (do y’all see a theme to my layouts? they feel naked without a border to me!) to create the lines around the edge of my layout and then sanded the Black Magic to reveal the orange color core. I love this pop of color! I then traced the big star from the orange cardstock and cut and punched the green stars and sanded the edges to give them some character and reveal the color core. I tore the edge of my orange cardstock and the edge of the tag to reveal the colored core as well. Notice printing directly onto the cardstock comes out awesome as well!
