Designing with Debbie Standard
I don’t know how she does it but Debbie Standard creats layout after layout and they are ALL amazing AND they showcase Core like no other…ENJOY!
When I saw these adorable pictures of little Gavin reading I immediately thought of the Cosmo Cricket Neutral collection for my background papers. Gavin adores books and will hunt them out to sit and read and be read to. I added some Darice Washi tape to create a frame and also along the top of my page. I created the worm and books with a die cut from my Silhouette. I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Stain on my background and some Galatos to create the dribbles on the page.

Got these adorable photos of my daughter’s bff’s baby, Gavin and decided to scrap them in a grid design using only the colors in his clothes. I Cut a border and then cut inside the border to form the outside of my frame. Then cut strips 1/4″ wide to use as the center strips in my grid. Then I chose two colors that matched his clothes and embossed them with different embossing folders. I attached some ribbon around the top one and then used my scraps (I’m all about using scraps!) to make the flowers and hearts to embellish the embossed sections. I sprayed the flowers and spin using the Mister Huey’s mist before added the brads.

I loved this picture of my son, Jason, and his girlfriend, Maria, taken during an outing to Fredericksburg. They love having me scrap pages and are getting where they are constantly sending me pictures to scrap (gotta love that after fighting to get pictures of this boy for years!!!) I went for the 6 X 6 packs to create this and picked out colors from both the Darks and the Neutrals packages. I first used a die cut to cut out the hexagons and then used different embossing folders to emboss each one with. Then I sanded them and dusted them off and adhered them to my page. Then I used my Silhouette to cut some swirls and the hearts and some Spellbinder’s die’s to cut the flowers and the leaves. As I’ve said before when you cut something delicate like leaves or swirls – run it through your Xyron machine and while it’s still on the wax paper – sand it – it’s alot easier not to tear it that way.
