Layout for you!

Design Team Member Char Dobson created this layout using some Jenni Bowlin Everyday Core Impressions. This Whitewash in Butter Churn has a gorgeous yellow core so Char inked it a bit to bring in some of those  cool distress tones to this layout. And don’t forget about those Petaloo Flowers made to match Core perfectly! Check out the Color Matching Series here.

In case you missed it…here is the Colour Lover’s Palette for March:

SHE SCORS!

Well…not the scoring you might see at a football game…but the FUN kind of SCORING! We highlighted scoring yesterday on the blog and I just happen to come across a few more amazing examples of how to SCOR with CORE ;)

We love love to scor here at Core. If you haven’t scor’d before than PLEASE check out our Technique Videos here. LOADS of inspiration and REMEMBER to scor from the BACK of your Core so when you sand the front with your Sand It Gadget, that gorgeous core shines through.

First up we have a layout from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson. Lydia created her own design here just by scoring! You can create a patchwork design like this and the outline around the layout to frame it, too. SO easy yet SO much impact.

Lydia used Tim Holtz Kraft Core as her base and some Core Essentials and added some great details from Jillibean Soup.

And design Team Member Melissa Oliveira used this month’s Colour Lover’s Inspiration palette for this layout. See how Melissa used scoring to frame the layers of the layout? Gorgeous gorgeous! I cannot  tell you how easy this technique is and how much impact it can have on your layouts with Core’dinatons Colorcore Cardstock!

Here is a little about scoring from Melissa, “Scoring is my favorite way to add some extra visual interest without added bulk or additional layers.”  I AGREE, do you?

And Melissa used her Petaloo flowers that match Core PERFECTLY!!!!!!!!

And a Spellbinder’s Die for the shape…
