You came to the right place!
We are here all week long with Lawn Fawn! Our team loves loves loves loves their stamps so much. From cards to layouts, we have it for you! Please make sure you head over to their blog for more inspiration AND their Facebook page. Their Design Team is incredible and you don’t want to miss anything.
Can you say…paper airplanes? EEEEEK! This Flying By stamp set IS JUST TOOOOOO CUTE! Emboss your Whitewash cardtock with a Darice cloud embossing folder and punch some peep holes with a circle punch in your layout…it really allows those planes to pop off the page and really look like they are flying. Don’t forget to use the Flying By die cuts…makes life so easy! Shaunte always adds the sweetest details like stamping on the Core Couture for the sentiment and the heart in the twine. Just because it has a different finish doesn’t mean you can’ stamp on it.
And don’t be afraid to get out those stamps and use them on your Layouts. Shaunte
Shaunte mixed and matched a bunch of Core on here with her Lawn Fawn Bon Voyage stamps. She sanded the Tim Holtz Kraft Core No. 3, My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions on top of that and then embellished her way to a fabulous layout!

AND IT’S HER BIRTHDAY!
Hello! My name is Tracy and I have been crafting since I was a little girl. I started scrapbooking when I was in high school and card-making about 3 years ago. I am currently going to college for Graphic Design and work part-time at a local scrapbooking store. I have been published a couple of times and also have an Etsy shop where I sell handmade banners and cards. Paper-crafting is such an awesome hobby because I am able to preserve memories while expressing my creativity! When I’m not crafting, I enjoy spending time with my family, rollerblading playing tennis, and shopping. I am so excited to be a part of the Core’dinations design team and use the best card stock on the planet!
Make sure you check out Tracy’s Blog HERE for more inspiration and keep reading to learn more about her layout today.
I love using bright colors on my layouts! I cut banners out of different colored Core’dinations cardstocks and sanded them for some added texture. I also used dies to cut out the hearts and flowers and sanded them as well. I thought the Core Tags would be a cool way to display all of my photos on the layout, I just had to trim the bottoms off of them a bit.
Very Pretty page. I love your color choices. The blue and teals
really make that photo pop. Welcome to the team Heather.

So how about Tuesday’s tip? I created this layout about our yearly St Patty’s Day parade. We go every year and just love, love it. It’s in a small town near us and it is CrAzY! The boys love it…they love the necklaces and the candy they get. I, of course, love the bagpipes. For this layout I used some Core Cuts, Core Couture, Spotted, Brights, Stacy Julian Core Impressions and Whimsy Core Impressions from BasicGrey.
I know we have said this a gazillion times before but it is amazing how EASILY our collection packs Core’dinate!
So what is the tip? I have a few for you today
1.) After distressing your edges, use a dark contrasting color to ink like I did here with black. I love the way it looks against the pink Core Couture cardstock.
2.) Use pre-embossed cardstock, like our Core Impressions lines or Step two layers from David Tutera Celebrate, for your die cuts. It is so so easy! It is just one less step then embossing them yourself.
I used Lifestyle Crafts dies for this layout.
And my last tip is…..
3.) Use of the large tags from Step 3 David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system for a journaling tag. One of our smaller tags wasn’t big enough for what I wanted to say so I reached for one of these. Plus the cardstock is smooth.
Please note the Stacy Julian Cardstock is no longer available as it has been discontinued. Stamps are Lawn Fawn, Ink by Memento, tickets are Maya Road and misc buttons from my stash, Glue Arts adhesive.
