Happy Monday!

Can you believe we are in August already?!

For a lot of us, it is Summer and it’s winding down quickly!

Today we have some fun, summery layouts from Design Team Member Debbie Standard featuring some BasicGrey Core Impressions (green) and some Vintage Cardstock for the background.

Debbie used some more BasicGrey Core Impressions on this layout in addtion to some Fancy Pants Core Impressions.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match your Core Impressions for some great contrasting prints.  It’s just like patterned paper! Add some bits and pieces of Jillibean Soup, Bella Blvd, May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinder’s Dies and you have a fun, summer layout.

Oh and there is that Cloud Embossing folder from Darice! We are loving that one ;)

Don’t forget about our CARD DESIGN TEAM CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
