Just a reminder …Don’t forget about our Core Colour Challenge!

Only nine days left to get those entries in and a Core pack of cardstock is up for grabs!!! More details here.

Today we have some fun layouts from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Melissa works the 8.5×11″! check out the tone on tone embossed hears!!!! LOVE!!!

Here is a little bit about this layout from Melissa, “the embossed hearts were cut from the left over strip from trimming the background to a 8 1/2 x 11 size. I just embossed, sanded, and popped them up with foam tape for a little added dimension. I sanded then inked the Jenni Bowlin butterfly Core Impressions that is behind the title work. I really like the way the sanded areas take to the ranger distress inks.”

And speaking of love…..

How sweet is this?  That chevron Pink Paislee Core Impressions is too perfect! SO many great details, don’t you think? Melissa used her BasicGrey embossing folders for the hearts.

Faves of 2011

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!

So….ready for some inspiration and give-a-ways???? We have TWO for you again today!

Today is all about our Core Impressions Jenni Bowlin Everyday Collection AND Black Magic.

These two lines are so perfect for any paper crafter.  Having some Core Impressions and Black Magic is an essential in your stash.

Let’s start with Design Team Member Char Dobson’s layout. This piece of Whitewash in the classic Country Store design is one of my faves, too! Love how Char sanded it and then inked it. Remember! Use your Dust Buddy after sanding, it will clean up the dust and keep your ink pad clean.

Char also added bits and pieces of the other cardstock in this collection, too. We all {heart} buttons, don’t we??? And that cute little August subtitle above the banner is from the mini pads of the JBS collection.

Next up is some Black Magic. There is something magical about this cardstock, for sure!  You gotta love the outlining technique that Char uses on this cardstock. We have a great video here for more tips!
