So over the next few weeks our Design Team is putting together some of their favorite projects from 2011.

Starting us off is Design Team Member Kim Jeffress!

How much do you love the colors on this layout?  Kim used the Spotted Collection and some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core.

There is a lot of amazing detail on this layout…such as the splatter paint on the sanded dots and the subtle inking around the elements on the page.

And next up is a layout of Kim herself using some of that Gorgeous BasicGrey Core Impressions! Notice how Kim sanded the Core Impressions randomly? Just spots of the core coming through here and there.

And a card of course!

Love love these Jenni Bowlin mini calendar pages! PERFECT for cards and everything goes better with an umbrella!

Oooh, this looks fantastic! Great samples with this line.

Today is all about BasicGrey and My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions! Yep! You guessed it….we have TWO giveaways for you today.

First up we have Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley with a layout using the MME Core Impressions. Did you know we have mini packs of cardstock in the MME design for our cardmaker friends?  We sure do!  Obviously these look awesome on layouts as Shaunte shows us here.

Love how she hung the cutout shapes with the MayArts Ribbon like ornaments!

And a close-up. Love how Shaunte inked the edges in black. Looks gorgeous on the whitewash and a great way to accent that sanding. REMEMBER! Use your Dust Buddy before you ink 😉

And next up we have some BasicGrey Core Impressions from Design Team Member Kim Jeffress using the Whimsy collection.

How about this for upcycling your scrappy packaging???? Everything does go better with candy.

See you tomorrow!
