Today’s Tuesday’s Tutorial comes from Lydia Jackson. Ever wonder how to use your Cuttlebug Embossing folders for a border on a layout? Keep reading…

NOTE: Remember to work from the BACK of the Core’dinations Cardstock because you will be sanding on the front of the paper.

Using a rolling pin and firm pressure, roll over the folder to create the embossed image.

Turn the cardstock over and sand:

Here is the finished layout. Isn’t that border fantastic? NOTE: Notice how Lydia overlapped the corners so you don’t have to worry about them lining up exactly. It adds to the whimsical feel of this adorable layout!

Supplies: Core’dinations Core Essentials, Cuttlebug folders from Provocraft.

Here at Core’dinations we LOVE our Score It minis and use them often. They make embossing easy with the unique way it keeps the paper from moving and the measuring tool along the top.

Here are a few examples of what our Design Team did with their Mini Scor It:

Lydia Jackson used her to make a grid for her title…

Here is a two page layout broken down individually so you can see the details of how Debbie Standard made her scored background:

Here is a little bit about Lydia in her own words:

My name is Lydia Jackson and I live on the beautiful west coast of Canada, I am a SAHM, with two little boys who are my whole world. I am married to an adoring husband, who loves me, keeps me grounded and supports my addiction to paper. I love life and all it’s imperfections, and I live by and struggle with my motto, believe and anything is possible. I have been formally scrapbooking for 11 years, but I have been a crafter my whole life. I am incredibly excited to be a part of the Core-dinations design team, for me, it is a dream come true.
