Make an impression with Core’dinations

….that is with our CORE IMPRESSIONS! Debbie Standard is rocking the layouts for us today. ENJOY!!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Creating with the Core Impressions line is SO MUCH fun! For this page I wanted an embossed background in a soft color so I chose a sheet from the Pink Paisley collection as my base which I sanded with my Sand It Gadget and then dusted with my Dust Buddy. Then I just went through my scraps (and yes I keep all reusable Core’dination’s scraps) and picked colors from the basic core colors that went with my photo and background paper.  To tie them all together I used a neutral beige to back each square.  I embossed each square with Darice embossing folders, sanded them and then matted them with the Neutral beige.  I added my title and some embellishments both hand made and pre-made to compete the page. The beautiful girls are my daughter (left) and her bff.

AND another layout from Debbie Standard working that Core Impressions…this time the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain cardstock.  Debbie uses these for her CSI case files. The colors are always amazing!

The cool thing about Core Impressions, in addition to the fact they come embossed, is that you can add layers and layers of sanding and inking and sewing like Debbie did here:

Layouts with Designer Melissa Oliveira

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!!!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday’s Tip…Scraps from a Sketch

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!

Loving all the Spotted and Core Essentials cardstock PLUS..some May Arts ribbon and Imaginisce iRock, too!

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!
