Designing with Debbie Standard

We have three gorgeous layouts from the amazing Debbie Standard!

Debbie creates the most amazing projects…so much detail and SO MUCH CORE!  She really demonstrates the entire concept of, ahem, not needing any patterned paper.  You can do it!

I love using the White Wash collection – there’s just so many uses for it.  For my page here I  sanded over the entire sheet so some of the blue tones would come through and then up under the title area I put a piece of cloud chipboard and sanded over it in several different places to simulate the sky and clouds in that area of my page.  Then I had two small embossing folders and I used some of the bright cardstock which perfectly matched the little dress and embossed and sanded two small squares.  I then used the same paper and scored it around the area of my embossed piece to create little frames.  To make the embossed piece stand out I backed it with white.  The leaves were all created on my Silhouette machine.  As long as you can run these through your Xyron you can sand these delicate pieces before taking them off the backing and applying them to your page.  The flowers are all cut with Spellbinder’s Dies.  Then I  lightly sanded them – you have to be really careful doing this as they are delicate – I find it works best to put my finger in the middle of the flower and then lightly sand the edges of the petals.  The larger the flower the easier it is to sand.  Then I rolled the petals over my paper piercer and sprayed them with some Maya Road mist.  I continued to encourage the edges to curl after misting.  After they were dry I added some My Mind’s Eye brads.  This adorable little subject is my sister’s bff’s granddaughter, Bridgette.

I just love the dotted collection – both of them – one has larger dots and one smaller.  It even comes in the 6 X 6 too!  For this I started with a sheet of the blue in the Jillian collection.  First I scored a frame around the entire sheet and then I sanded only inside my frame.  Then I cut a piece from the Tillie collection in a lighter shade of blue and attached it to top of my page.  I then used a sheet of Core Impressions Fancy Pants collection which I sanded and then just cut out the frame from.  I made my clouds using a die cut and then cutting it from a sheet of White Wash – these make the best clouds – you can sand them letting the blue come through and they really look like clouds!  Then using some of the smooth tags I used one for my title tying a May Arts ribbon around it and another for my journaling.  The adorable little subject is my daughter’s bff’s baby – so love that she got these monthly stickers so she can record a picture every month for me!

I saw this wedding photo and immediately knew I would be jumping into my Core Amour collection for this one.  I also used some of the Core Pastels which were the colors of her wedding.  This particular Amour sheet only requires that you sand across the works.  Then I misted it.  I used my  Silhouette to cut some swirls which I layered down the side of the page.  I then used a Martha Stewart punch and placed a small pink ribbon over it.  The photo itself I first matted with black, then with pink and then which yellow white I tore around .  The flowers and butterfly all came from die cuts which I cut, sanded and then sprayed with Maya Road spray.  I let them dry and then put them together and attached to my page.  I added some little tiny die cut tags and some prima leaves.

Introducing Jill Lebbin!

Filed under Core Blog, May Arts Ribbon

Who’s having fun this week???

Today we are welcoming Jill Lebbin!  If you have been with us the last week or so make sure you check out the winner list HERE. You might see your name there and don’t want to miss out on your Core Prize pack.

Here is a little bit about Jill:

Hello! My name is Jill and I share my crafts on my blog Every Day is an Occasion. I am so ecstatic to be on Core’dination’s Design Team! I absolutely LOVE designing and creating projects! Within the last five years I have learned that I am happiest if I am able to carve out a little bit of time to live creatively every day, whether it is by decorating my house, making a card, or working on a scrapbook. I guess I could say, it is in blood…I attribute all my craftiness to my mother.

Most of my time is spent with my loving family. I have a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my endeavors and two sweet and spunky kids whom I get to spend my days with. I am so blessed!! We enjoy traveling together, whether it is to zoos, museums, or lakes…but our very favorite spot to travel to is The Cayman Islands.

When I’m not spending time with the fam or crafting I am working on my fundraiser that I created and direct called Craft for a Cause. We raise money to help buy Automated External Defibrillators (AED’s they help restart a heart).

Here is the inside scoop in Jill’s layout:

I chose a picture of my family as the focal point in my layout because they are my main focus. They are my life. Everything revolves around them and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is a picture of the four of us at a zoo. My son absolutely LOVES zoos, so we have been to 7 different zoos around the country within the last year.

When crafting, I like to make things fun and interactive. So, I hid the Core Tag behind the photo. If you pull the ribbon, the tag will come out and I wrote where we were and the kids’ ages on the tag.

Card Design Team call update:  We are still narrowing down entries.  We are HOPING to have a decision by the end of the week.

This is not an easy process and something we don’t take lightly so we appreciate your patience!

It is going to be GREAT! We always have such a GREAT time doing our cross promotions!

So here is a little taste of some of the Petaloo flowers created specifically to match our papers!!! How much do you love the fact that you have everything that will core’dinate at your finger tips?  It makes creating easy AND beautiful!

Melissa used a bunch of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L on this layout, too!  She used the Dodz to adhere the flowers (once these guys go down they aren’t going anywhere!) and some of the 3D foam adhesive for the hand cut flowers that she alternated with the Petaloo flowers. Did you know those hand cut flowers are from our Jillibean Soup Core Impressions pack? Melissa also used some Vintage cardstock (green) and Fancy Pants Core Impressions (yellow) and Core Essentials (pink).

Here is a close up of the Whitewash hearts and the 3d Foam adhesive on the flowers.
