Layout for you!
Design Team Member Char Dobson created this layout using some Jenni Bowlin Everyday Core Impressions. This Whitewash in Butter Churn has a gorgeous yellow core so Char inked it a bit to bring in some of those cool distress tones to this layout. And don’t forget about those Petaloo Flowers made to match Core perfectly! Check out the Color Matching Series here.

Today we have some fun layouts from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.
Melissa works the 8.5×11″! check out the tone on tone embossed hears!!!! LOVE!!!
Here is a little bit about this layout from Melissa, “the embossed hearts were cut from the left over strip from trimming the background to a 8 1/2 x 11 size. I just embossed, sanded, and popped them up with foam tape for a little added dimension. I sanded then inked the Jenni Bowlin butterfly Core Impressions that is behind the title work. I really like the way the sanded areas take to the ranger distress inks.”
And speaking of love…..
How sweet is this? That chevron Pink Paislee Core Impressions is too perfect! SO many great details, don’t you think? Melissa used her BasicGrey embossing folders for the hearts.
