What a great day…the sun is shining…only a few more days until Friday…what more can we ask for? WELL, Designer Debbie Standard has some layouts for you today.

This layout brought a smile to my face today. First up the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain background…and the colors…yellow…gray…and that pop of red are just awesome! Oh and you cannot forget about the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions. Debbie hand cut those details for her title and subtitles.

And how cute is this???  Debbie was inspired by all the sunburst layouts she has been  seeing on Pinterest. SPEAKING of Pinterest…make sure you follow us on our page HERE! What a great way to use up those scraps of Core you have in your bin. AND all those lush embossed (and sanded of course!) designs are gorgeous, gorgeous!

Debbie cut, embossed and sanded each section and then created the sunburst effect along the top.  Then she added the Stacy Julian Core Impressions pre-embossed words along the side.  Then she added some clouds that she die cut using the Whitewash collection which makes really great clouds by the way because you can lightly sand them and bring out the blue tones.

Supplies:

Core Essentials
Stacy Jullian collection
White Wash Collection 6 X 6
Embossing folders – numerous
Sand It Gadget
Dust Buddy
Queen & Co. Washi tape and gems

Introducing Kate Nolan-Denham

Wow, Tuesday already? We hope you took the time to remember and thank all of our service men and women that have sacrificed so much for us to have our freedom. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
We are back up and finishing off our last week (week three) of our Design Team Introductions!  If you have been following us  make sure you check our WINNER page HERE to see if you won!
Today we are saying hello too…..Kate Nolan-Denham!
Here is a little bit about Kate:

Hello! My name is Kate Nolan-Denham, but I answer to Katie, Mom, and Mimi, too. I live in Maine with my dear hubby (Scott), our youngest daughter(Lily) and two dogs(Lexi & Ryder). Our oldest daughter(Kass) lives nearby with our two grandsons(Chase & Seth). We are so lucky to live in a small community that is situated only 45 minutes from the ocean and the mountains. By day, I am an Office Manager for a Speech-Language Pathology Center. I love my day job because the women I work with do great work and have huge hearts! I was encouraged to start scrapbooking by a dear friend who insisted that scrapbooking was “so me.” She was right! Twelve years later my love of paper crafting has evolved to include scrapbooking, card making, stamping, altered art, and a dabbling of mixed-media. My style is clean and colorful (most of the time). I have had the honor of being on several design teams during the last few years, but I am especially excited about joining the Core’dinations team. Now I can check it off my bucket list!

Check out more awesome projects on Kate’s blog HERE!

So who is ready for a layout all about Kate?????
If you were taking a sneak into my Instragram account, you would see these pictures.  Amazing how a phone can caputre those moments that define you!
I wanted my layout to be a reflection of me, not only with photos, but also in style.  The clean, colorful design of my layout is what I consider my papercrafting style.

I scored my background Core’dinations Cardstock at the 1″ vertical mark and then every 2.4″ horizontally. This created a grid in which I sanded to give a little pop.  Each of the arrows is die cut out of differerent colored Core’dinations Cardstock. I used my Cricut to cut the titlework out of Core’dinations Cardstock, too.

Core’dinations Supplies:
Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection 12″x12″ and Cut & Emboss
Jillian Dot Spotted 6″x6″
Other Supplies:
Fabscraps Pearls
Pebbles Patterned Paper
American Crafts Jute
Helmar Glues
Cricut

And……………….we need a winner of our Vintage Cardstock, right??????

Layout with David Tutera Celebrate Card Making System

Yes, you heard me right….

A layout with the David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System!  Trine  always does beautiful work and this layout is no exception. She mixed and matched some Jenni Bowlin Everyday Core Impressions with bits and pieces of the Steps 2 Lace Doily Assortment and Die Cut Label Assortments and  Steps 3.

Isn’t it gorgeous?   And the little banner from the  Flower and Heart Seals and the Wedding Shapes. This line is so versatile and makes even layouts easy and beautiful!

Someone pointed out about the little envelope…I don’t know how we missed this the first time around. That is one of our Step 3 Bookmarks! Trine just folded it to make it look like a cute little envie!

And just to keep you updated…the new Design Team members have been notified via email. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of the amazing applications.
