Creating Layouts with School Colors

There are a lot of High School graduations going on right now and  Kate Nolan Denham has a great layout to share with us today using school colors. With such a variety of different colors and kinds of cardstock to choose from, Core’dinations Cardstock can be your go to paper for any occasion!
On this layout, Kate does a great job working around that issue we always find when using Core and embossing folders….”how do I only use a 5×7″ folder on a 12″ layout?” She balances it perfectly with a 5×7″ photo and then, of course, sands!

Kate here today with a graduation layout that sports school colors from Core’dinations Vintage Collection.  It is one of my favorite collections!
I did a lot of sanding with my Sand It Gadget.  I wanted the color core to really pop on the edges of the mats  where I embossed and scored.  It allowed me to add dimension without having to add more layers.
You can see how awesome the Core’dinations Color Core looks in this up close photo!

Here at Core’dinations Cardstock we celebrate technique every day. If you haven’t checked out our Technique Videos yet, please do HERE.

Today, Kate Nolan Denham shares a great layout with us that uses FIVE different techniques.

1.) Distress It: crumple your cardstock and sand it with your Sand it Gadget.

2.) Label It: Run a strip of cardstock through your label maker and sand it for easy journaling and titles. OR, like Kate did on this layout, make flags out of them!

3.) Emboss It: Use a standard embossing machine and fold and then just sand. Don’t forget to wipe with your Dust Buddy!

4.) Corrugate it: Just take a paper crimper and run your cardstock through it and sand.

5.) Die Cut It:  Use a die cutting machine to cut shapes and titles and sand.
