Since February is the month of LOVE…we thought, why not share of love of sketches with everyone?!?!?!

A HUGE thank you to designer Lydia Jackson for creating this sketch for us.  It’s got everything you need to create a gorgeous layout, don’t you agree?

Now let’s see Lydia’s layout. Don’t you love the tone on tone sanding for the journaling block? And the label journal strips are such an easy way to ensure you get those memories on the page, too.  For tips on how to create those check out the video here. And accenting the hearts along the bottom with one embossed, sanded heart is the perfect accent. SO many possibilities with this sketch.

Now…it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t give something away now would it???

We would LOVE to give one person a Core prize pack for completing this challenge. Link your layout or card back to THIS post  or Share it on our FACEBOOK page by February 28th, 2013. It must be visible that you used the sketch as inspiration. You must use Core’dinations Cardstock  on the project and at least ONE Core technique. For some inspiration, HERE is a list to our technique videos.  You know we LOVE anything that shows off the cool Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock!
