Spring Break, Easter..

That is what these gorgeous pottery pieces remind me of. And our team has chosen this as their Colour Inspiration piece for the month of April.

First up we have a layout from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson.  Lydia used some BasicGrey Core Impressions and Cosmo Cricket Core impressions with some Core Essentials. It looks awesome with all of that October Afternoon, don’t you think?

And do you see the yellow tag?!  We are in love with tags here at Core!  This one is from the pastels collection of the Core Tags series. You will LOVE them and they each come with a gorgeous, metal grommet….same GREAT Core’dinations Cardstock just in a tag.

Lydia used this Pinterest inspired photo found here on our Colour Lover’s board.

Edited: For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s. Sorry for the confusion but we are not offering a prize for this challenge at this time due to our GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY going on right now. It’s HUGE…a value of over $700!!!! So make sure you enter today AND tell your friends! {when you enter it will give you the chance to send emails to your friends and  share on Facebook) The MORE we get signed up, the bigger and more frequent we giveaway prizes!

So over the next few weeks our Design Team is putting together some of their favorite projects from 2011.

Starting us off is Design Team Member Kim Jeffress!

How much do you love the colors on this layout?  Kim used the Spotted Collection and some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core.

There is a lot of amazing detail on this layout…such as the splatter paint on the sanded dots and the subtle inking around the elements on the page.

And next up is a layout of Kim herself using some of that Gorgeous BasicGrey Core Impressions! Notice how Kim sanded the Core Impressions randomly? Just spots of the core coming through here and there.

And a card of course!

Love love these Jenni Bowlin mini calendar pages! PERFECT for cards and everything goes better with an umbrella!
