This week we have a fun week in store for you….we are introducing our NEW 2011 Design Team. For this special week, each Design Team member created a layout all about themselves. We will be updating galleries daily with new projects from the team so make sure you check their galleries often!
First up is Lecia Forrest. Here is a little bit about Lecia in her own words:
I have been creative and passionate about art since I was able to hold a crayon. Constantly drawing on walls and signing my little sisters name to the artwork, I’ve embraced all the creativeness that scrapbooking brings. I first discovered it when I started traveling all over the world and realized I wanted to remember my experiences forever. Then I married the man of my dreams, and we had 2 boys (Riley:7, Jager:5) and a little girl (Ireland: almost 3). Now you will find me embracing the life of a mommy while still teaching locally and traveling internationally teaching scrapbooking and altered art classes where you are sure to have a good time laughing and learning. I have been published in U.S. & Canadian magazines, international websites and blogs. I have also worked on design/educator teams for many of the industry’s leading manufacturers. Currently I am an endorsed educator for Tattered Angels, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L ,Vintage Street Market, Urban Swank and Core’dinations.
Check out the cool details Lecia did with the doilies! And the black accents on the edge of the cut out, shaped Basic Grey Core Impressions and My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions! Mixing and matching Core is SO much FUN!
Next up is Lydia Jackson. 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.
Check out that embossing over the photo! So cool Lydia!!!
With the Stanley Cup playoffs in full force, we thought it would be a great time to share our love of all things hockey!
Design Team Member Lydia Jackson shared this layout with us over the weekend and it is just priceless. The My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions background is perfect for this layout. Just a touch of sanding around the edges is awesome and just enough to show off that gorgeous red core. Lydia accents that red in small areas throughout the layout, too. And pair it with some neutrals & a touch of blue from the Core Essential line and voila!
We would love to see what you can do with your Black Magic Core Impressions!
Have a gReAt week!
This week we are celebrating Fathers and Family here on the blog!
We are kicking it off with two layouts from Debbie Standard. Debbie packs her layouts FULL of amazing details so grab your coffee and be ready to get inspired!
For this first layout, Debbie sanded a sheet of My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions. It looks beautiful with the bright blue embossed Core Essentials. And check out the fun details from the 4×6″ mini My Mind’s Eye collection pack! They go perfectly together. And of course those fun photos of the kids playing around with their Dad. They just make you smile!
Next up, Debbie shares with us another layout about family. For this layout Debbie scored her Whitewash background . Such an easy and quick way to make your own background!
The flowers are stamped. All you need to do is turn your Core’dinations over and stamp on the backside for a nice, smooth finish.
AND…yes, there is more! Debbie printed her clouds from her computer using a digital image directly on some Whitewash and the sanded.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Today we wanted to share with you an amazing layout from the My Mind’s Eye Core Impressions line just released at CHA in January. This project is from the Lost & Found 12×12 paper pack.
Check out this gorgeous layout from Design Team Member Kim Moreno. Just gorgeous! It was designed to work with both My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Collections and it pairs beautifully with other Core’dinations lines like the Chocolate Box that Kim used as her base for this 12×12 layout. Notice how she scored the frame around the outer edge of the layout base?
