Designing with Melissa Oliveira today!  Here is a little bit about this cute layout from Melissa:

The graphic design of the Pink Paislee Core Impressions made a great home for a grid style layout. AND chevrons are all the rage these days! Keeping the layout clean and simple with just a bit of sanding and embossing allows the little details like the punched butterflies, sanded edges and machine stitched border shine through.

And a close up…Core’dinations is just so great. Sand some, emboss some, use your Fiskars Paper Crimper like Melissa did here with the yellow strip …so many textures so little time! And the added Queen & Co. bling on the butterflies is the perfect touch!

Guest Designer Leeann Pearce!

Monday Monday!

Hope you had a GREAT weekend! We are back to our regularly scheduled blog posts. Between Holidays, flu, getting ready for CHA, Hard Core Crop prizes and more…we are busy busy!

Today we have Guest Designer Leeann Pearce with us again! Leeann is the queen of cool. Her layouts are always so awesome with layers and layers of texture and this color combo is just a classic.  The gray tones that Leeann pairs together are just perfect and it’s so easy with Core’dinations Cardstock since everything “core’dinates”!

Here is a little bit about this layout from the lovely Leeann herself:

Hello and Happy New Year Core fan… Today I am sharing a quick page. I am a lover of solid colours and shapes. I created a chevron background by cutting 3” x 3” squares into triangles. I wanted to add just small pops of colour as you can see. I did add some texture to the bright yellow triangle using my embossing folder and Sizzix Big Shotz machine. I used a Core tag and have this hiding in small paper bag.
Materials Used: Cardstock Neutrals, Tim Holtz  Ranger Distress collection, pack all white  Core tags, Crate paper border stickers, a flair for buttons, Epiphany crafts round 14 tool and bubble cap, Amy Tangerine rosette, Heidi Swapp buzz words, twine.
