Designing with Melissa Oliveira today! Here is a little bit about this cute layout from Melissa:
The graphic design of the Pink Paislee Core Impressions made a great home for a grid style layout. AND chevrons are all the rage these days! Keeping the layout clean and simple with just a bit of sanding and embossing allows the little details like the punched butterflies, sanded edges and machine stitched border shine through.
And a close up…Core’dinations is just so great. Sand some, emboss some, use your Fiskars Paper Crimper like Melissa did here with the yellow strip …so many textures so little time!
Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!
My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading
And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:
Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:
Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies. Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice. Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.
AND ..last but not least…
My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk. So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.
So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road. All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.
Happy Hump Day!
Today we have some projects from Designer Andrea Amu. As usual Andrea works her Cricut and the Core…so many amazing details so grab that coffee and sit back and enjoy!
And how about some ch-ch-ch-chevron?! The Core Impressions Pink Paislee Modern Prints collection has tons of great chevron prints. Swooooon! Andrea used the backside of the Chocolate Box and inked it for the first layer and then cut out pieces of the chevron and sanded every other one, too! Add a stamped sentiment and you are good to go. Love it!
I couldn’t wait to dive into the NEW David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system for things other than cards. Making gift bags is one of my favorite things and I knew the time had come when I wanted to make a mini album for a friend who just had the cutest little guy a year ago. So I made a premade album for her so all she needed to do was just add photos.
I used one of the tags from Step 3. The tags come with different pre-embossed designs so all you need to do is sand.
Same with the Step 2 layers. They make PERFECT pages for the album AND NO CUTTING or EMBOSSING!!!!!! Just sand them if you want and adhere. SO SO easy.
We cannot wait to see what you can do with the NEW David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking system. It’s not just for cards…the possibilities are endless.

We have another beautiful layout from Rebecca to share with you today!
She worked that Pink Paislee Core Impressions….First up, Rebecca actually turned the hexagon print on its side so it goes horizontally across the page. It totally changes the entire focus of the layout. Add some hand cut details from the pre-embossed circle designs and you are on your way to one awesome layout!
Here are is a detail of that sanding…loooooove it!

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.
