Hearts All Around!

We love some 8.5×11″ around here!

So for this layout, Melissa  embossed the cardstock FIRST and then sanded BEFORE  punching into heart shapes. This is much more Time efficient than individually embossing and sanding each punched shape. And if the shapes are tiny it’s a bit harder to sand those small pieces, too.

And that scored frame is just an easy way to create a focal point on your projects. Scor THE BACK of the cardstock and then sand the raised image on the front. It is THAT easy!

And, of course, the stitched circle is just the perfect detail to finish this cute layout.

Here is a close up of the Label technique we know and love here at Core. Melissa used her Label maker and then inked the raised letters so they pop off the cardstock. For more info on labeling check out our video here:

Journal strips are such a great way to accent your journaling. Again, Melissa used some Whitewash and sanded the edges…

Melissa used a variety of embossing folders from Sizzix, Darice and Provocraft in addition to some Queen & Co. bling.
