Creating a Border with Core Tags

Core Tags make great decorative elements for your layouts. They come in all colors and sizes and are easy to run through your embossing machine. If you don’t fee comfortable taking out the metal gromments, just line the tags up so that part is sticking out of your embossing folder.

I was initially really hesitant about the silver grummets, not wanting them to get smooshed from the pressures of the rollers however it wasn’t a problem! The depth of the embossing folder is akin to that of the grummet so it’s a non-issue (so long as you have the grummet outside the embossing folder!).

Check out how the embossed  tags up top compliment the embossed edge tags on the bottom!

CAMPING!

It is almost time for our annual trip “upta camp”  so it is the perfect time to share a layout of one of the fun camp games we played last year.  Core’dinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distressed Collection was all the cardstock needed to create an earth-toned camp layout!

I used some basic techniques to give this layout dimension and show off the color-core.  The Chipped Sapphire was embossed, sanded and dusted to make the giant blue banner in the background.

The Vintage Photo Cardstock was crimped, sanded and dusted to make the photo mat.  For tips on crimping, check out the Technique Video HERE.

I scored, sanded and dusted the two ends of the banner made with the Dried Apricot Cardstock.  This gave it a bit of texture that was needed for a finished look.
Tip:  When making banners, you do not need to have a die cut. Just gently fold the cardstock in half (do not fold so much that there is a crease) and snip from the end into the center at an angle.

Before we get started today we have a quick update on the Northrige winners. They have been picked and emails will go out shortly! So  stay close to your inbox and we will post names soon, too.

Today we have a layout from Designer Debbie Standard featuring some Core Amour.  Sand the white wash and the black core comes through…it’s so cool! Debbie accented it with blues and yellows from the Spotted Collection. Love that pop of color, don’t you?

And how about pairing that Spotted Cardstock with some Fancy Pants Core Impressions? Mixing and matching our different collections is so much fun!  Add some of your own embossing like Debbie did here with the Whitewash strip and who needs patterned paper?
