We LOVE sketches….do you?

Since February is the month of LOVE…we thought, why not share of love of sketches with everyone?!?!?!

A HUGE thank you to designer Lydia Jackson for creating this sketch for us.  It’s got everything you need to create a gorgeous layout, don’t you agree?

Now let’s see Lydia’s layout. Don’t you love the tone on tone sanding for the journaling block? And the label journal strips are such an easy way to ensure you get those memories on the page, too.  For tips on how to create those check out the video here. And accenting the hearts along the bottom with one embossed, sanded heart is the perfect accent. SO many possibilities with this sketch.

Now…it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t give something away now would it???

We would LOVE to give one person a Core prize pack for completing this challenge. Link your layout or card back to THIS post  or Share it on our FACEBOOK page by February 28th, 2013. It must be visible that you used the sketch as inspiration. You must use Core’dinations Cardstock  on the project and at least ONE Core technique. For some inspiration, HERE is a list to our technique videos.  You know we LOVE anything that shows off the cool Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock!

We love quick and easy around here. And using Core’dinations Cardstock makes it simple and elegant.

Designer Lydia Jackson has a few cards for us today. Emboss, sand, add some October Afternoon goodies, SRM stickers, May Arts Ribbon and Voila! You have some great birthday cards.  Oh and a few Queen & Co pearls for that sparkle!

And for this card Lydia uses all her scraps! Notice the yellow stars she randomly adhered over the embossed image?  They are the punched stars from the yellow strip.

Hoooooo loves Core’dinations Spotted Cardstock?

We are back on track with Tutorial Tuesday!
Remember this cutie we posted on our Facebook page during CHA?
Here he is at an angle so you can get the idea of all the layers. He’s a beauty!
WELL, the most awesome Designer Lydia Jackson who created this gorgeous owl using our Spotted Cardstock recreated a pattern JUST for you!  How cool is that?  PLEASE give her a HUGE Hard Core Thank you!
To create this owl that you will need are 3 colors of Core’dinations Spotted cardstock, black cardstock and a little yellow cardstock for the eyes, 2 black buttons and 3 types of Queen & Co washi tape. Tools: scissors, pinking shears, a crimper, Sand it Gadget and a Dust Buddy, Zap Dots and a Glue Arts tape runner.
First:
1. Print the owl part images on 8.5 x 11 paper and then use them as a template to cut matching color cardstock. See below.
Next:
2. Sand all elements and wipe off with a Dust buddy
3. Fold and stick  Queen& Co. washi tape around the lower portion of the eyes. I trimmed the ends of the washi tape with pinking shears, but most any decorative edge scissors will work.
4. Assemble the head with eyes and then beak and then using pop dots, pop up wings and and pop up head I used a thin pop dot on the wings and a thick dot on the head.
5. Create his chest feathers using this technique { here is this link http://lidibids-scrapnotions.blogspot.ca/2010/07/quick-leaf-tutorial.html }
6. And lastly cut or punch two hearts for feet.
Here are your print outs:
PLEASE NOTE: you may need to resize this print out on your own computer. Lydia’s orginal owl is 8″ but you can resize it to any size you wish. Just right click on the image, and click save in order to save it to your computer. We kept them sized as big as we could to fit on the blog (you will notice that they are larger then the screen) in order for you to be able to size them accordingly on your computer at the highest resolution.

If you create one of these little fella’s, we would love to see it on our Facebook page, so please pop over and share it with us!!!
a HUGE thanks to Lydia!
