MORE Tim Holtz Shattered in here!

Some more Tim Holtz Shattered Collection layouts!  This line was a HUGE hit at CHA…you are going to LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

A layout from Designer April Derrick:

Check out the fun folded card we learned from Guest Designer Leeann Pearce AND see that cool  postage stamp layer in the Kraft?  YEP…that is from the David Tutera Celebrate cardmaking system Step two. We LOVE mixing and matching these collections!

And another postage stamp layer from the David Tutera line. Told ya we liked ‘em! :)

On this layout, Designer April Derrick  used her Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Chipped Saphire by Ranger and inked the Shattered cardstock. See how the stain just soaks up in the cracks and turned blue??!?!?!?  HOW COOL IS THAT??? And she embossed some of it too (the layer under the photo). So many possibilities!

Stay tuned for more ideas on is BRAND NEW Line that we debuted at CHA 2013 featuring Tim Holtz-Kraft Core!

We are here ALL WEEK LONG with Bella Blvd and couldn’t be more excited.  Our team has create some really gorgeous   projects showing off just how great Core’dinations Cardstock goes with the beautiful Bella products. From fabulous patterned papers …to alpha letters …to super fun decorative tape…Bella Blvd. has  products for every paper crafter.

So sit back, relax, and get ready to be inspired. Our Design Teams have worked hard for you! If you were here yesterday than you saw some gorgeous layouts from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley.

We would LOVE it {and I know they would, too} if you could head over to their Facebook page and give them a great big “HI!” from us and the Bella Blvd blog is looking mighty fine, too! Head over there and check out all the gorgeous projects their team has been cooking up this week. You won’t be disappointed.

And are you ready for our FIRST giveaway?  Get commenting on THIS post to win a Core Prize pack including some of this silky smooth cuts like butter Glitter Silk cardstock….

Tuesday’s Tip comes from Design Team Member Lydia Jackson. Lydia pretty much created an entire baby album with Bella and Core. What is so great about this is that it EASY! You have all of your coordinating Bella Blvd embellishments, papers, and alphas AND now you know that our Core Cardstock matches PERFECTLY! I don’t know about  you, but having all of that at my fingertips makes creating a unified (and super cute) baby album EASY! Not to mention I have always LOVED Bella Blvd chipboard shapes and pieces.

Let’s check out what Lydia did…she created her own patchwork background with different pieces of Core Essentials and different embossed patterns. Don’t forget to print right on that Core! Gosh this baby boy line is SO CUTE.

And another layout for this super cute baby boy album…Lydia used some Fancy Pants Core Impressions along with some Core Essentials and Core Tags. LOVE that piece of tape right over the photo.

And next up we have a Tuesday Tutorial for you from Design Team Member Andrea Amu using the very cool Designer Tape from Bella Blvd that we have all fallen deeply and passionately in love with here at Core. She cut it on her Cricut…SO COOL!  Here is a little bit about this project in her own words, “I added a strip of the yellow chevron designer tape from Bella Blvd to a scrap of yellow Brights Core Essentials and I used my Cricut to diecut 1/2″ alphas (Lyrical Letters Cricut cart – Jack Sprat font).   I also folded some of the paper tape into tabs and used them on the neck of the giraffe diecut which was cut from some yellow WhiteWash Core.  I embossed the giraffe (Cricut New Arrival cart – cut at 6″) with a Sizzix animal print folder, sanded the spots and went in and added some extra brown tones with a Ranger ink pad and the Ranger blending tool.”

LOVE it! What do you think?

The blending looks so great on the giraffe. By embossing, then sanding and then adding the ink really makes it look realistic and adds another layer of depth. But remember…emboss, sand and THEN ink.
