Celebrating St. Patty’s Day with Layouts

I know every day I feel lucky to have Core’dinations as a part of my life and when I saw this layout from Kate Nolan-Denham, I couldnt wait to share!

When we are lucky enough to have a good friend that will stand by us through thick and thin, we should celebrate it!  What better time of year to celebrate how lucky we are than St. Patrick’s Day?

My layout today is inspired by the lucky theme of St. Patrick’s Day and the colors we associate with this day, too. It is chock-full of glittery greens, golds and blacks found in Core’dinations Gemstone, Glitter Silk, and Core Couture Glitter Collections.  I bet you didn’t even realize there were so many fantastic glittery collections by Core’dinations!

I embossed the black Glitter Silk Cardstock and then lightly sanded it just so the embossing would pop.  The die cut doilies are also lightly sanded to show off the core.

The titlework was also cut out of the Glitter Silk Collection.  When using your Silhouette to cut the Glitter Silk, I recommend reversing your image and cutting it Glitter Silk side down.

Now on to this weeks festivities. First up we have Shaunte Wadley working some Pride layouts. I don’t know about you but I JUST got my summer photos printed so I am going to be reaching for this paper pack for sure.  I just love how Shaunte works the 12×12 sticker sheet here with all the little bits you can make with them.  She creates her own little embellies al over the page with the tags and banners.  Layouts are easy with Core’dinations  and Authentique!

And when you are done here make sure you head over to the Authentique blog for inspiration and a giveaway, too!

And another Pride layout from Suzanna Lee:
Wanting to stick with the Independence day theme of the Authentique papers that I received, I wanted to create a coordinating background using Coredinations. I traced a Crafters Workshop stencil/mask with an embossing stylus on a piercing mat then sanded the raised “self embossed” pattern.
