By the Sea Layouts

We love our Graphic 45 Signature Series Lights and Darks Collection and they match PERFECTLY with the By the Sea Collection from Graphic 45 for those summer photos. Create a patchwork design by alternating Core’dinations embossed and sanded squares with patterned paper.

Graphic 45 - Debbie (2)

Supplies:
For the background of this layout, I used a sheet from the Graphic 45 Core’dination’s Lights  collection and cut it into three sections (hidden by the strips of patterned paper) and embossed and sanded them.  After dusting them off with my Dust Buddy, I attached them to another sheet of cardstock and then covered the edges where they met with strips from the patterned paper.

Suzanna Lee here and over the months that I have designed for Core’dinations, I have shared with you many of the plus’ of working with Core’dinations cardstock. With the design team call announced (yes, you TOO could design for Core, see more about the call here) you know that this term is winding down for us and I have one last plus to share with you; no matter which manufacturer you put along side Core’dinations, there is always a WIDE assortment of coordinating Core’dinations cardstock to work with.
I have yet to find a company who I can’t coordinate Core’dinations cardstock with. Today we are partnering with Petaloo and just look at how amazing this Graphic 45 Dark’s collection pairs up with the Petaloo flowers! I was sent an assortment of different flowers that I mixed and matched to grow my garden with – a lovely bed of flowers indeed!

Hi, Ava here today and I would like to share a couple of Wedding Cards with you that I made in anticipation of the summer Wedding season upon us.
The David Tutera Celebration Card Embellishment Kits should be a staple in every home to help make fresh cards for any occasion.  The 3 step kits are ready to use and a little sanding adds texture to the cards.
Step # 1
Select a card base from the many choices that are available. I am using the Window Die cut cardbases.
Step # 2
Select a decorative layer from the Step # 2 or your choice of matching colored Core’dinations Cardstock.
Step # 3
Add matching embellishments from the Love Embellishment Kit and fun bow from some May Arts ribbon.
