Very pretty card. Love the textures and embellishments.

MaryLou email ellen_sosnoski@core’dinations.com with your full name, address and phone number with Tombow Winner in the subject line.

And how about another card from Design Team Member Heather Kaesgan? A super cute card using some Marvy Uchida punches and Glitter Silk, Core Couture, Core Essentials and a Darice embossing folder for the buttons. What a great mix don you think? Love how the ribbon that she created with the punches pops off the top a bit. Oh of cours..Tombow adhesive!

Designing 8.5×11″ layouts with Suzanna Lee

Who loves 8.5×11″ layouts?  I DO I DO!  First up we have THE COOLEST layout from Designer Suzanna Lee!  I know I am going to try this for sure. She has a GREAT Tip for you today for our Tuesday Tip of the week.
Using embossed Core for a background is one of my favorite things to do with Core. It adds so much texture and visual interest to a layout. As I don’t have a larger die cut machine to run my folders through, I cut the paper then  run each half of the paper through my Big Shot. You can barely tell that it’s a sheet of paper cut into two pieces! The tone on tone chevrons create an interesting subtle background.

And another layout with a much different color palette.  EEK! I love how Suzanna created the flab/banner at the top with the Jenni Bowlin Mini Calendar piece!  Is there any other company out there that has products like this that allow you the creativity to create such cool, one of a kind embellishments???
When pondering what to use for my layouts, I typically grab my colors from the colors in the picture. This picture of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, France was taken in panoramic mode with my iPhone. It has a hints of red from the underside of the escalators that I wanted to make stand out a little bit so I chose the similar hues in both pre-embossed and “plain” cardstock. There is nothing plain about Core however!! The Kraft Core that I used to cut the title tied together the browns and reds perfectly!

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.

Now how about some Valentine’s Day inspiration????

Design Team Member Debbie Standard has a fun card for us today. Nothing screams Valentine’s Day hearts and glitter, don’t you think?  I love the pink and gray combo.

AND we aren’t done yet! Guest Designer Leeann Pearce is here with us again with just the coolest layout! If you are familiar with Leeann’s work she always has uber amounts of texture and depth to her projects and this one is no exceptioan!  All I have to say is that kebab sticks aren’t just for grillin’  Here is a little bit about this layout from her:

Hello core fans…. I hope you are all well after another successful CHA. I hope you are all ready to share the LOVE this month. I am, that’s why today I get to share another fabulous page with you featuring none other than CORE!!!!
I created this page using jenni Bowlin core collection – I used the wallpaper print, as a matt and background. I didn’t sand it I really love the natural embossed texture. Plus I wanted to let you all know how I made my heart embellishment.
How too heart paper softie:
1: cut out oversize heart shape and sand
2: punch holes in one heart
3: hand stitched to heart shapes together
4: leave small opening and stuff with plastic bags (tissue paper or batting would work here, too)
5: make arrow and thread thru before stitching closed
6: embellished and glue to page.
Tip: Stuff your heart with chocolates and give to LOVED ones.
Material: Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions, Heidi Swapp buzz words, prima vines, epiphany crafts vintage settings and bubble caps, kebab stick and feathers.

Well, Monday is Christmas Eve so this will  be our last post for awhile we spend some  time with our families, celebrate old traditions and create new ones of our own.

Be Safe, be Happy and be Merry!

We leave you today with a layout from Designer Char Dobson that celebrates all of these things:

Char used some Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions and paired it with some Jenni Bowlin Vintage Brights.

Love all the May Arts Ribbon Char added, too! Looks like a candy cane.
