Words on Wednesday!

Each of our designers have a really unique style. People always ask what companies are looking for when it comes to teams and I think one of them is diversity.

Speaking of teams………..we are going to be announcing the names of our BRAND NEW Card Design Team any day now! Everyone has officially said, “yes” so we are ready to go. Exciting stuff!!!!

Design Team Member April Derrick not can not only work the Core but she has a unique style AND she always has the neatest titles on her projects. I don’t know about you but titles can be the hardest part of a layout. I recently scrapped some photos of our trip to New York City and all three layouts had the same title, “NYC”!

So today is all about words, ie, titles!

How fun is this title?  Makes me smile because this is something we can all relate to for sure.

And take a look at the bottom blue strip…April embossed and layered some mists on it. Love that texture!

And next up …another fun from April. Check all the cool details…first up I notice the sanding of the Whitewash right away and then April does a lot of tone on tone in her layouts. Then to whave her title stand out, she outlines them with marker.

We hope that we inspired you to get creative with those layouts and titles!

More May Arts goodies in here!

As you know we are having some FUN this week!  Check out the May Arts blog here for more chances to win and head over to their Facebook page because there will be some fun stuff going on, too!  You know we always give something away!

How’s about we get messy today?  Design Team April Derrick  whipped up some super cool  layouts for you today! The pop of May Arts Glitter ribbon is so perfect on this layout. And look closely, there are some awesome details like the Whitewash under the folder embossed with the Darice Clouds embossing folder….the color matching Petaloo flower….

Have you seen these gorgeous oversized  frayed flowers from May Arts???

They looks so gorgeous cut and used here on layout…and check out the ribbon weaving!

We have another FABULOUS day for you today.  We have some MORE  inspirational Father’s Day project for you today.

We love dads and the men in our lives.

Leica Forrest created this uber cool layout using masking and the backside of her

Cosmo Cricket Core’dinations Core Impressions.

Leica flipped her Core Impressions over and use the backside and then masked her title.

Masking on Core!!! WE LOVE IT! Looks fabulous, doesn’t it? Just another way that Core’dinations can be your “go to” cardstock for ANY project.

Here is a detail shot for you.  LOVE this idea of masking on Core. Stay tuned for some more tips and tricks on this technique in the next few weeks! ;)
