Layouts with Debbie Standard

Today we have some gorgeous layouts from Debbie Standard!

We had a beautiful day for my mother’s 87th birthday and afterwards while the girls were still dressed up we went around the corner from my house and had them pose in this beautiful field of blue bonnets (Texas is known for their  state flower)! My granddaughter was patient with me up to a point and then she spontaneously burst into some random poses – these were  my favorite!

1.  Sand the Jillibean Soup Impressions.
2.  Use blue from the Tim Holtz & Ranger  Distress collection and emboss it with a Spellbinder’s embossing folder.  It is of course too wide to run through the embossing machine so I cut my paper in two and embossed each sheet and then attached them together.
3. I matted my photos with white and then added pink behind my photo strip.  I punched the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and then sanded them before adhering.
4.   I cut my flower and my title from my Silhouette ran the title through my Xyron machine and attached it.  Totally loved how these colors came out and reflected everything in my photos.
5.  I printed my journaling on 110 lb Smooth White cardstock and then cut it and ran it through my Xyron machine.

We celebrated my mother’s 87th birthday recently and had her kids, some of her grand kids and great grand kids there. Even with just a partial group there were 16!.  She was thrilled!  When the restaurant realized who we were singing too they all joined in.  She was so cute, I had to document it!

1. Sand the BasicGrey Core Impressions and adhere together with Washi tape.
2. Then I cut and matted my photos on a sheet of white and then backed it with a bright blue and attached it.

I loved this sketch over at Page Drafts and knew exactly what picture I wanted to use with it.  Love how the Tim Holtz Shattered collection gives you such great background even if you don’t do anything to it – it already has a great look.  Love that I can do a layout and never touch any patterned paper.

Start with a Core Impressions base so you don’t have to emboss it on your own.  Then use the Tim Holtz/Sizzix 12X 2 strips and emboss.   The Core tags are so easy to use and add to your page.
I created the flower with Spellbinder’s dies and some Mr Huey’s spritz.  I love how the flowers look when they have been sanded and sprayed – my new favorite thing to do!

When I saw these adorable pictures of little Gavin reading I immediately thought of the Cosmo Cricket Neutral collection for my background papers. Gavin adores books and will hunt them out to sit and read and be read to.  I added some Darice Washi tape to create a frame and also along the top of my page. I created the worm and books with a die cut from my Silhouette. I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Stain on my background and some Galatos to create the dribbles on the page.

Got these adorable photos of my daughter’s bff’s baby, Gavin and decided to scrap them in a grid design using only the colors in his clothes.  I Cut a border and then cut inside the border to form the outside of my frame.  Then cut strips 1/4″ wide to use as the center strips in my grid.  Then I chose two colors that matched his clothes and embossed them with different embossing folders.  I attached some ribbon around the top one and then used my scraps (I’m all about using scraps!) to make the flowers and hearts to embellish the embossed sections.  I sprayed the flowers and spin using the Mister Huey’s mist before added the brads.

I loved this picture of my son, Jason, and his girlfriend, Maria, taken during an outing to Fredericksburg.  They love having me scrap pages and are getting where they are constantly sending me pictures to scrap (gotta love that after fighting to get pictures of this boy for years!!!)   I went for the 6 X 6 packs to create this and picked out colors from both the Darks and the Neutrals packages.  I first used a die cut to cut out the hexagons and then used different embossing folders to emboss each one with.  Then I sanded them and dusted them off and adhered them to my page.  Then I used my Silhouette to cut some swirls and the hearts and some Spellbinder’s die’s to cut the flowers and the leaves.  As I’ve said before when you cut something delicate like leaves or swirls – run it through your Xyron machine and while it’s still on the wax paper – sand it – it’s alot easier not to tear it that way.

T-minus TWO days until Halloween!

And we have some MUST haves for you scrapbooking.

First, our Tim Holtz Kraft Core Seasonal Impressions shown here from Designer Debbie Standard:

I love when the season is one that works with Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions cardstock – it makes the page so easy to do.  For this page I started with sanding the entire sheet.  Then I inked the outside design and some of the words with Tim Holtz Ink.  Then I shielded the middle of the sheet and sprayed the edges again with Ranger Dylusions Pure Sunshine spray.  Then I embossed a sheet of Tim Holtz Adirondack cardstock and sanded it and layered it over a sheet of patterned paper from Graphic 45′s French County collection.

AND … we have another gorgeous gorgeous creation using our SECOND must have for Halloween projects…..BLACK MAGIC!
Chalkboard is all the rage currently and what better product than Core to create your own embellishments and layouts! Especially Black Magic!! For a “grungier” chalkboard look, that look as if the blackboard has been used, be sure to rub your chalk (yes, real chalk), lightly on the Nightfall cardstock before decorating. I have used 4 different chalkboard effects here to create this layout; 1.) white pencil on paper (my title, Carved), 2.) Die cut or punched objects with sanded edges (bat and numbers), 3.) white powder embossed stamps and 4.) embossed Black Magic which is sanded to show color for a pop of color.

Core and Couture Creations Giveaway

And who’s ready for some projects from Design Team Member Kim Moreno??? I don’t think there is one project on here where Kim doesn’t work her  ScorPal. Scoring is a GREAT and EASY way to add accents to projects. From creating a unique frame around your projects to adding journal lines and even making your own patterns….you name it! You can do it with Core’dinations!!

LOVE the outlining technique for the title!

Cardstock: Core Essentials (Nightfall, Fushia Fizz, Atoll Aqua), Core Impressions (BasicGrey)
Cardstock Sticker: Crate Paper
Foam letter stickers: American Crafts
Tool: ScorPal

And a few cards…Kim can really work her card magic. All you need is some Core and a few accents and, “Voila!” You have some gorgeous cards for any occasion.

I know we shared this card on Facebook already but with the upcoming Holiday, I wanted to make sure everyone got a chance to see it. Repeating the same shape in different colors and lines of Core’dinations looks amazing! AND it’s quick and easy. You just grab some scraps, run them through your embossing machine…adhere…and that’s it!

I used the ScorPal to create the border around the edge of my card and sanded it slightly to reveal the kraft core of the paper. I then ran the papers through my Cuttlebug to emboss the leaves… sanded each of them and cut them out. I used the 250 to adhere the leaves down and then used the glue dots to keep the sentiment block down- I wanted it to be a bit more tacky since it was going over the twine.

And another cute  card…I just love these little square cards!  Scoring is the perfect accent, too. Here is how she did it:

I used my scor pal to make the lines around the edge of the card. I then ran the pink paper through my cuttlebug and sanded the sentiment slightly to reveal the colored core of the pink paper. I then backed it in patterned paper twice and adhered to the center of card and added jewels and felt embellishment to finish.

And next up, a quick tutorial on how I created a fun candle and card set using the new Smooth Bookmarks(Bright), Black Magic, David Tutera Cardmaking cardbase and a Darice embossing folder. This witch feet embossing folder is AWESOME!  OH..and some Thrilling papers, of course!  Honestly, Whamy from the Black Magic Collection is the BEST cardstock  to have for Halloween. The Core is purple!!! Oh and how much fun are the Queen & Co Rox rhinestones on her boots?

candle and shoe card

Cut the little nub off:

004

Then cut it in half. The to trick in making it look like it goes around the front is  cutting it in half and sticking each end under the journal spot on the front.  Don’t forget to emboss! Even though they are smooth you can still emboss them.

006

And the back…you may be wondering why it doesn’t go all the way around but I wanted it that way since I punched the papers and used pints where they meet.  And I am not sure if you can tell but one side of the tag is embossed and the other is debossed . The twine is May Arts, of course!
