Tuesday’s Tip…Scraps from a Sketch

Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!

My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading ;)

And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:

Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:

Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies.  Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice.  Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.

AND ..last but not least…

My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are  like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk.  So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.

So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road.  All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.

Quick and Easy Birthday Cards

We love quick and easy around here. And using Core’dinations Cardstock makes it simple and elegant.

Designer Lydia Jackson has a few cards for us today. Emboss, sand, add some October Afternoon goodies, SRM stickers, May Arts Ribbon and Voila! You have some great birthday cards.  Oh and a few Queen & Co pearls for that sparkle!

And for this card Lydia uses all her scraps! Notice the yellow stars she randomly adhered over the embossed image?  They are the punched stars from the yellow strip.

Spring Break, Easter..

That is what these gorgeous pottery pieces remind me of. And our team has chosen this as their Colour Inspiration piece for the month of April.

First up we have a layout from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson.  Lydia used some BasicGrey Core Impressions and Cosmo Cricket Core impressions with some Core Essentials. It looks awesome with all of that October Afternoon, don’t you think?

And do you see the yellow tag?!  We are in love with tags here at Core!  This one is from the pastels collection of the Core Tags series. You will LOVE them and they each come with a gorgeous, metal grommet….same GREAT Core’dinations Cardstock just in a tag.

Lydia used this Pinterest inspired photo found here on our Colour Lover’s board.

Good Morning!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and a fun Father’s day. Celebrating the men in our lives is such a treat!

I wanted to share a quick last minute Father’s day gift that I made utilizing some Core’dinations and October Afternoon that would be perfect for any Holiday for your man, friends or family. My husband travels Monday through Friday during the week and we miss him while he is gone so the point of this gift was to have something for him to carry with him in his laptop bag as a reminder of how much we love him and are proud of him.

Here is the badge. Every Dad needs to have one of these, don’t you think? I used two different kinds of Gray Core’dinatins cardstock on here. For the badge I used Weathered Tin and the core is a lighter shade of gray. Then for the Card/Mini book, I used Stormy Gray which has a white Core.

And the back. Just adhere a safety pin to the back he can display it proudly:

And the front of the Card/Mini book:

And the inside {super simple}:

And here is Henry modeling it for you. Please don’t mind his Cheeto infused shirt:

The sun is out, then it rains for two days, then more sun, neighbors are mowing lawns, waking up to birds chirping, little girls with crocheted hats and kids with strawberries…that is what Spring is all about. And, lucky for you, we are celebrating Spring on our blog right now ;)

Look at this cutie in Melissa’s layout:

Check out this Detail!

And nothing reminds me of Spring more than Strawberries. Check out this fun layout from Paula celebrating Spring.
