Here on the Core blog this week!

We have  a special treat from Core Teacher Vicki Boutin for you today!

What a way to to show off all the amazing colors and textures of Core’dinations cardstock. Our color families core’dinate in each line so you can mix and match them easily.

Here is a little bit about this layout from Vicki:

“We love St Patrick’s Day around here.  Not for the traditional reasons as much as the fact that it is my son Riley’s birthday!!!  We wear the green, get the Shamrock shakes from McDonalds and enjoy celebrating a “green” birthday.  So when I received a box of new Core’dinations I knew I wanted to put something together for a St Paddy’s Day layout.
I cut out a large shamrock shape for a base.  I then proceeded to punch a bunch of circles from Core Couture , Gemstones, Vintage, Spotted Jillian and Tillie and Core Essentials.  I layered the circles from the bottom of the shamrock up.
(insert close up)
Love how this turned out!!!  I used the back of Tim Holtz Kraft Core and a sheet of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions for the base.
Hope you get into the St Patrick’s Day fun and make something special to commemorate the day!”

Just a reminder …Don’t forget about our Core Colour Challenge!

Only nine days left to get those entries in and a Core pack of cardstock is up for grabs!!! More details 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.

Remember those invitations?

We have all made invitations for parties before. But the question is…what do you do with them once the party is over?

A few months ago we shared this super cute invitation from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson for her son’s birthday party.

Well…here is the layout that Lydia created using one of those  invites! What a great way to preserve that special memory and invitation that she created  for her little man, don’t you think?  She used primary colors  just like the spaceship and accented them throughout the page with the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions and the Tillie Spotted cardstock and some Core Essentials of course!
