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! And the added Queen & Co. bling on the butterflies is the perfect touch!
Any old but goodie!
Designer Melissa Oliveria created this layout for us today. Banners never get old, do they?
The cupcake banner was created by embossing and sanding several 1″ strips of Core Essentials cardstock, then trimming a “v” shape at one end of each strip. A punched, sanded Whitewash border was added to each flag before adhering to the layout using foam dots. The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions…just a little sanding goes a long way!
And I just heard that the NEW Design Team is 99.99% finalized. So stay tuned for the announcement!!!!!!!!!!!
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!
