Suzanna here to share with you a layout of those distant yet approaching warmer, summer days! We all need a bit of sunshine right now to cheer us up.
Have you noticed the increase of projects on an angle lately? I thought the slight tilt to this layout was only fitting for these pictures of the kids at the water park as they slipped and slid through the slides. The embossed cardstock adds to the water park feel.
Stamping on the textured cardstock can be tricky but don’t worry, Core’dinations has just the solution for that; 110 pound smooth cardstock! Just perfect for stamping on AND better yet for those stamped images that have a corresponding die like these letters from Lawn Fawn!
Not all of your cardstock needs to be self embossed. I mixed Spotted, Core Impressions and Core Essentials that I embossed myself and left just as it is. Check out the “rolled” edge that running the 110 pound cardstock with a die through your die cutting machine leaves. It’s not that abrupt ending of the edge.
I created a sketch of this layout for you so you can adapt it for your own scrapping pleasures! If you create something based on my layout and/or sketch, please do share! I would love to see what you were inspired to do!

And Kate Nolan -Denham has an awesome two page layout today with some amazing photos. LOOK at all that green grass!!! Here is a little bit about this layout from Kate:
It is so easy to add interest to a layout chock full of cardstock only by using simple techniques like embossing and sanding. You can see where I sanded the papers and the Kraft-Core pops through.
Happy Wednesday !
