So I was going through some blog posts looking for something and found this project from Ava Gavloski that never posted! This is such a gorgeous idea for that special graduate in your life! I have a freind going to a graduation party this week so hoping we aren’t too late for you.
Here’s what Ava has to say about creating this awesome project:
Are you getting ready for that Graduation Party? Plan ahead and check out your Core’dinations Cardstock to see if you have some color tones that will match the school colors. Try the de-embossed look to your front card panel, sanding lightly give the card a vintage feel. To stamp a clear image on the glitter paper, ink your stamp, lay your stamp face up and then lay your paper onto the stamp and gentle rub your glitter cardstock over the inked stamp image. This technique should give you a clear impression of your image on the glitter cardstock. This card design allows you to use up small bits and pieces from your core stash with the baner and star embellishments.
Dust off that crimper, find some embossing folders that speak to you and get creative with a few layers of your favorite Core’dinations cardstock. Layers are the secret to volume and a feel good texture. So, join me and make that gift bag with layers of Core cardstock that will be a wow the gift presentation.
Here are some detail shots on the gift bag:
And the fun centerpiece! Love how that Core Couture shines!
As you may have noticed…we, okay me, LOL….have been really ready for Spring around here. My daffodils are almost ready to bloom which means it won’t be long now.
And nothing screams Spring like birds! This monogram door hanger was featured in August 2012 Cricut Magazine…isn’t it gorgeous??!?!?!?!? Andrea works that Cricut for sure!
Love love all the glittery accents!
Don’t forget about our Design Team call going on now. You don not want to miss out on being a part of this awesome team! And you could find yourself wearing this badge.
We have a WOW of a Wednesday for you today from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. How many diffferent embossed patterns can you get on a layout?
Now I count SIX on this layout. Now actually it could be SEVEN because Debbie’s flowers are embossed, too! Oh no, EIGHT because she has two different kinds of embossed flowers from her Spellbinder’s dies. Now..here is the catch?!?!?! Think you can do more?!?! Well, let’s see if you can!
WE CHALLENGE YOU TO GET AS MANY EMBOSSED PATTERNS ON LAYOUT AS YOU CAN! You have until the end of this month, March 31st, to link your layout to THIS blog post or on our Facebook page. You must use Core’dinations cardstock on your project. It can be any kind…you can emboss it yourself or use our Core Impression lines so the sky is the limit!
Before we get started today we have a quick update on the Northrige winners. They have been picked and emails will go out shortly! So stay close to your inbox and we will post names soon, too.
Today we have a layout from Designer Debbie Standard featuring some Core Amour. Sand the white wash and the black core comes through…it’s so cool! Debbie accented it with blues and yellows from the Spotted Collection. Love that pop of color, don’t you?
And how about pairing that Spotted Cardstock with some Fancy Pants Core Impressions? Mixing and matching our different collections is so much fun! Add some of your own embossing like Debbie did here with the Whitewash strip and who needs patterned paper?
