Wonderful Wednesday with Char Dobson

Today we have some wonderful projects from Design Team Member Char Dobson…ENJOY!

Double page layouts=Double the FUN! I think you will agree when you see these fun layouts.

Lots of Pink Paislee Core Impressions….cutting and sanding that honeycomb pattern is too much fun!

Loads of Queen & Co. goodies on here from our friends!  And love how Char worked her Fiskars paper crimper and then sanded the Core Essentials!

OOOOOOH!!!!!

And some BasicGrey Core Impressions. Just love the pink and green combo from the Whimsy pack! :):):)

Book Club Ideas

I don’t know about you but I am an avid reader.

I love reading and I am always looking for friends that read so we can talk about books and share them, too!

Well, Design Team Member Char Dobson created these super fun projects for us today and they are all about your very own Book Club. Move over Oprah! ;)  Char used a  mix of Core Essentials and Tim Holtz Adirondack and Distress collections and her Cricut, of course!

See that gorgeous tag?  That is one of our tags from our Core Tag Collection in the Dark colors. And check out how Char stamped over the Basic Grey Core Impressions! What a great idea…add some ink to the edges and you have a fabulous invite.

Well, it is Tuesday that means we always try and give you a fun tip or technique and today Design Team member Melissa Oliveira is sharing two gorgeous layouts with us with some great ideas.  Melissa got to use the awesome Indie Bloom collection and isn’t cool how she made it festive for us? BasicGrey is SO versatile.

Melissa sanded the background of the BasicGrey Core Impressions to highlight the photo. She made the banner by cutting triangles from the back side of the BasicGrey core impressions, then mounting ot to the brown side (the right side) and trimming a scalloped border using Fiskars deco scissors.

Next up…a TREE from TORN paper!!! SO  COOL!

Melissa cut the small presents at the bottom of the LO  from the front packaging sheet of the Indie Bloom collection.  The prints are smaller on the cover art so they worked well for the look Melissa was going for (the full size prints would have been too big). The tree was made by tearing strips of the BG core impressions, then arranging with repositionable adhesive (from the Glue Glider Pro) and machine stitching in place.

Today we are being inspired by Design Team Member Debbie Standard.

Let me tell you, when our team got a hold of this BasicGrey paper, they didn’t hold back! Debbie has THREE layouts for us today!

For this first layout, Debbie used the Ornate collection and mixed it with some Tillie Spotted cardstock  (red).  She paired it with some Little Black Dress goodies from BasicGrey. Perfect for some Holiday layouts, don’t you think?

And this Cherry Cordial in the Sarsaparilla from the Ornate collection is one of my FAVES! Love how Debbie used it on her layout here today.Don’t be afraid to pair it with another graphic print like Debbie did here with the BasicGrey Herringbone patterned paper.

And back to the Ornate Collection. It’s so elegant and perfect for any layout!

Summer Lovin’ Tuesday Tip

Filed under Core Blog, Queen & Co.

We are Summer Lovin’ here at Core.

Soaking up these last few weeks of summer is always such a great time of year.

Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this layout to celebrate summer for us and her tip is how to make this fun grass.

It’s super easy! Cut a strip of paper, snip pieces with your scissor but make sure you don’t go all the way to the bottom

of the paper. When you are done, curl with a pencil or a paintbrush if you want it a tighter curl.

VOILA! You have grass. It mimics the photo perfectly.

Leica used a great mix of Core’dinations on this layout: Basic Grey Core Impressions, Core Essentials, Vintage and Stacy Julian Core Impressions.
