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!

Did you know that Core’dinations and Petaloo have a color matching program? We sure do! We did all the hard work so that you can easily match your favorite Core Colors with favorite Petaloo flowers. How easy is that???

Today we have a variety of projects for you.

First up Design Team Member Kim Jeffress with a gorgeous wall hanging. There is nothing like some warm fall colors to brighten up any room.

This project is the perfect example of the Core’dinations and Petaloo color matching program.

And how much do you love  the colors of this card from Design Team Member Char Dobson???  Gorgeous gorgeous! I just love Core. You know why?  Because you can emboss it on your own or use the Core Impressions like Char did on this card. She embossed a piece of Core Essentials in orange and then used a piece of BasicGrey in Mantis on the bottom.  Again…the flowers match perfectly!

And Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira has another fun Fall project for us. She altered a bucket she had lying around the house with some beautiful details. Melissa used her Spellbinders dies in addtion to May  Arts Ribbon and Petaloo flowers. The great thing about these flowers is that you can color them!  Melissa used Tim Holtz Distress ink on the flowers because they were a little bright for the  fall color scheme. Again, just perfect for ANY project.

And Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this soft and feminine layout for us today. Nothing screams little girl like pink , flowers and ribbon! The base is Pink Paislee Core Impressions.
