Mixing it up….

Happy Thursday everyone. Today’s post is about mixing our Core Impressions lines with patterned paper. The great thing about these paper packs is that they are cardstock yet they can work just like patterned paper.

For instance, this layout by Design Team Member Kandis Smith. Notice how she uses the Damask print from the Graphic 45 Timeless Core Impressions line.  She paired with some October Afternoon papers that have a completely different pattern. And check out that little strip of Gemstone. Perfect!

Also on this layout from our preferred partners: Queen & Co. Gemstones and Maya Road Chipboard.

And here is card from Kandis using the Stacy Julian Core Impressions dot cardstock. Who needs patterned paper when you’ve got this collection in your stash? Paired with the Graphic 45 tags and some Core Essentials, you’ve got a match made in heaven.

And one last example from Kandis. Check out this layout with the Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions against the graphic prints!  And of course that cute smile doesn’t hurt 😉 We would love to see how you used your Core Impressions!!! Make sure you link us up on our Facebook page or in the comments here.

Have a GREAT week!

on our adventure with Graphic 45. Are you having fun yet? Have you been inspired? Make sure you leave a comment and let us know. You can comment EVERY day (on that day’s individual post)  for up to five chances to win! In case you are just joining us for the first time this week, that’s okay! We are celebrating the partnering of Graphic 45 and Core’dinations Core Impressions from Graphic 45. We will be here all week!

First up on today’s inspiration list are two gorgeous cards from Heather Bowser. Heather uses the houndstooth print with the cardstock on the front and then repeats it on the inside with the Graphic 45 paper. The shape is beautiful and we love how she accented it with some green Core Impressions Cardstock.

Don’t be afraid to mix prints like Heather did with the Graphic 45 patterned paper and the embossed clocks.

And check out this beauty from Sarah Hodgkinson. She is the epitome of timeless, just like the Graphic 45 papers and Timeless Core Impression lines. Sarah created her using Quickutz Dies and gently sanding the background of the Core’dinations Core Impressions.

Have a GREAT day! We hope you are enjoying yourselves this week!

Graphic 45 Take Two!

Yes, yes. We are on to day TWO of our blog swap with Graphic 45 and I don’t know about you but we are having FUN! Make sure you check our their blog and the cool Graphic 45 Core Impression line from Core’dinations.

Don’t forget to leave a comment to win some of our FABULOUS cardstock!!!!!

So…yesterday we did cards…how about some layouts today???

Here is a layout from Cari Locken.  Cari really lets the cardstock be the standout of this layout. She combined the clock paper and the houndstooth and some striped Onyx cardstock. I love how they contrast each other yet work together to make a cohesive layout. And how cool is that pop of teal???

Next up is a layout from Hera Frei.  Hera used the neutral background with a pop of color, too, this time adding some of the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers!  I bet you are wondering why Hera took a photo of a bus. Well, Hera lives in Switzerland and there aren’t school buses! Everyone lives within walking distance from their schools so when her and her family saw this school bus while vacationing in Canada, she had to snap a photo. Her boys were intrigued by the idea that all the kids can ride together.

And Lydia Jackson worked the Graphic 45 on here! First off, how cool is that photo of her face painting? I love the tone on tone with the pops of orange.

See you tomorrow with more projects!
