I cut the snowflakes out of Core’dinations Snowflake using my Silhoutte, painted the die cut with some glue and added some fine glitter.

And next up two layouts from Debbie Standard:
I have always loved the Jenni Bowlin collection. The reds, blacks and browns are always so striking. And there are so many wonderful collections in Core’dination’s products that it’s easy to mix and match to get just the look you want. For this I started with some Jenni Bowlin with the dots, added a piece of the JB with the words on it. Then I used some of the Tim Holtz Distress 2 X 12 pieces and embossed and sanded them. I added a few other color scraps and then sanded and cut around the My Mind’s Eye Core mini label. Then I punched out some snowflakes with a Martha Stewart punch, attached them and then added the Queen & Co and the Kaser Goosebumps. The kids having so much are my grandkids, who had an unexpected snow day and a great family play day.

Tim Holtz is always a winner in my book. For this page I used papers from his Shattered collection. I started with the red sheet and left it as is. Then I took a sheet of black and embossed it with a snow flake embossing folder and sanded it. Then I choose a piece of the yellow and embossed it with a folder of winter sayings. Then I added the strips of grey and white. I used my Silhouette to make the snowflakes out of the Glitter Silk White paper and added some of the Queen & Co. Pom poms. I used some random My Mind’s Eye buttons as well. This is my little great-nephew, Cason, who is finally old enough to get out and enjoy the snow.

This week we are celebrating Fathers and Family here on the blog!
We are kicking it off with two layouts from Debbie Standard. Debbie packs her layouts FULL of amazing details so grab your coffee and be ready to get inspired!
For this first layout, Debbie sanded a sheet of My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions. It looks beautiful with the bright blue embossed Core Essentials. And check out the fun details from the 4×6″ mini My Mind’s Eye collection pack! They go perfectly together. And of course those fun photos of the kids playing around with their Dad. They just make you smile!
Next up, Debbie shares with us another layout about family. For this layout Debbie scored her Whitewash background . Such an easy and quick way to make your own background!
The flowers are stamped. All you need to do is turn your Core’dinations over and stamp on the backside for a nice, smooth finish.
AND…yes, there is more! Debbie printed her clouds from her computer using a digital image directly on some Whitewash and the sanded.
