And a card from Designer Debbie Standard featuring loads of Core and some of the cool background stamps from Lawn Fawn.

Some Tim Holtz Kraft Core and the sharp backdrops:

and using the interlocking backdrops  with some Chocolate Box…loooove the subtle look of this. Debbie added some May Arts ribbon to both of her cards and a David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system  sentiment. These are GREAT if  you don’t have  a sentiment stamp that fits your needs.

Next up a funky cool layout from Designer Ava Gavloski. LOVE how she created a layout and used the So much to say You’ve Got Mail  sets in such a cool and unique way!

Those furry babies in our homes provide unconditional love at all times.  Just the brand name “Lawn Fawn” can conjure up visions of fur babies!
This layout features Coredinations Black Magic and Amour, Jenni Bowlin cardstock.  The addition of the Lawn Fawn stamps and pattern paper collection Dewey Decimal truly complements my photo so well.

Say Hello to Tracy Gruber…

Today we are introducing Tracy Gruber!

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.

Supplies:
TIm Holtz Shattered Cardstock
White Core Tags
Core Essentials Brights
Lawn Fawn and Memory Box dies
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder
Cuttlebug
The Twinery twine
Dust Buddy
Sand It Gadget
Dear Lizzy Thickers
