With Design Team Member Debbie Standard!
Core’dination’s has so many wonderful collections to choose from it makes creating easy! I love this Pink Paisley Impression’s collection. I picked pink for my page and sanded it with my Sand it Gadget so that the embossing would stand out more. Then I used my Dust Buddy to collect the extra dust from the sanding. Next I chose a piece of the Spotted Jillian collection – attached it with my Xyron mega runner and stitched on it. I added some of the pastel Core’dination’s tags and layered it. I added a David Tutera tag on which I stamped. Then using some of the Glitter Silk collection I punched out some snowflakes and topped them with pearls and pom poms from Queen & Co. I created a little film strip along the bottom of my photos of more of the photos from the day.
I hope this post finds you warm and cozy! Suzanna here from Life’s Trivialities to share with you a winter layout created with left over scraps of Coredinations cardstock. Gather colors in the hues of a pleasing snowy palate, emboss a few and lay them out as you would a cozy warm quilt. In order to tie the paper into the theme of the layout, chose snow filled embossing folders. Fill in some holes with David Tutera tags and zig zag with your sewing machine (or use a pen for faux stitching). The layers of the layout in some places are as numerous as the layers you will need to be out in that winter wonderland. Voila! The base of your layout, it’s that easy!

I cut the snowflakes out of Core’dinations Snowflake using my Silhoutte, painted the die cut with some glue and added some fine glitter.

First up Kate Nolan-Deham…Kate used a banner to really enhance her monochromatic color scheme. And how sweet is her Glitter Silk dress form that she embellished!
And look at all this texture from Designer Gail Linder??!?! LOVE how she chose to use some yellow…a color I think a lot of scrappers struggle with:
A super simple card from Designer Ava Gavloski…monochromatic doesn’t need to be complicated….
and one last card from Designer Heather Kaesgan…LOVE how she mixed in some Gemstones for her monochromatic look for that bit of shimmer….
Clare Buswell used our Core Amour Cardstock to create a unique monochromatic look:
And Tracy Gruber always creates the CUTEST cards….hippo-ray, LOL! So cuuuuute! And monochromatic doesn’t need to be the exact same color. Tracy used different hues of purple for hers and added some Gemstones as well.
And how about a Pink Monochromatic layout from Designer Ava Gavloski? Look at all that gorgeous detail! Using the BasicGrey Core Impressions for her base and then just adding fabulous bits and pieces in pink and white….
