There’s no horsing around when it comes to Core!
I couldn’t resist! If you follow Jennifer Edwardson’s blog then you will know her daughter shows horses competitively and she is INCREDIBLE! Jennifer always does such a neat job capturing those special moments like she did for us today.
And of course she used ALL Core’dinations Cardstock! Who doesn’t love that???
My studio is literally covered in red and pink and white for Valentine’s projects so I took a break and created a different kind of love layout using nothing but fab pieces of Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock !!!
I have endless pics of Em and her horses but her and Ginger are my fave to work with right now. It’s not a secret that I am completely obsessed with this gorgeous mare !!
I started with a pre-embossed creme base and lightly sanded off the top. I used several embossing folders on the other pieces. I used a tiny polka dot folder for the blue and clocks for the brown (love this one :)) ……
I punched 2 different sizes of hearts from (5) different colors of Core and then embossed and sanded each one. When I layered them onto my layout I adhered the bottom flat and then tucked a piece of 3D foam under the top to raise pit up a little for more dimension.
I ran a piece of Kraft Core cardstock through my Silhouette to cut the title ‘enjoy every moment’ …. I say things like this all the time at home – live every day ect … so this title was great for this layout of these everyday pics of my 2 fave girls :))
I used my typewriter on a piece of creme cardstock for my journaling and then cut it up into a few pieces and rounded the inside edges …. adhered flat and this one is ready for Em’s album !!!
Tag, You’re it! Well, maybe not you, but this layout is chock full of Core’dinations Core Tags. Core Tags are such a great way to accent a layout, journal, or frame a photo like I did in this layout.
I used several different technques on the tags. Crinkling and distressing, debossing and distressing, paper tearing and distressing, embossing and distressing all can be done on the Core Tags, just like you would any Core’dinations Cardstock. The title Core Tag was even die cut in my Silhouette. Before you try sending a Core Tag through your Silhoutte, remember to remove the grommet first. I added mine back after die cutting.
By keeping the grommets in the Core Tags before applying any techniques to the tags, it allowed for the gromments to take on a grungy, smooshed look.
What do you do to your Core Tags? We’d love to hear about it!
