Harvest Feast Layout from Suzanna Lee
Thanksgiving for some of us, is around the corner. A month away! A month to think about what’s for lunch or dinner, where you will be, if and how you will decorate, etc. There is nothing more seasonal when it comes to Core’dinations cardstock than Tim Holtz Kraft Core, Seasonal Impressions! I have another Seasonal Impressions Thankful layout to share with you. Last year, I used Thankful No.21 and this year I am going with Thankful No. 19.

Step 1: Ink the pre-embossed Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions. This lighter color pre-embossed cardstock was a bit more difficult to see than the darker colors. Typically with Core, you sand with your Sand It Gadget to reveal the core color and have a two tone cardstock. In order to better see the pre-embossed words, rather than sanding, I used my Tim Holtz ink blender to rub color over the embossed words. You can see that better here:
Step 2: Add some Core Tags! Using Core Tags on your layouts is a great way to add journaling or a decorative element behind or around your photos as well! If you happen to have some of May Arts Burlap Center Stitch Ribbon, it makes a perfect compliment to the Core Tags! Perfect for a fall or Thanksgiving themed layout!
I just love the background that the pre-embossed Seasonal Impressions creates! Such an incredibly effective background without using patterned paper!
Fab-u-lous Friday MOnday! YES..it is fabulous, isn’t it?!?!
Well, since this post was supposed to go up Friday and somehow I missed the publish button we will just pretend we are starting the whole weekend over 😉
Not sure if you saw over on our Facebook page but the HCC crop winners have started to go out! Please keep in mind we only ship twice a month and we generally get prizes out within that calendar month (sometimes there is a vacation in there and other unforeseen things come up). We have to hand pick prize winners and each one gets packaged by a very special someone in our home office and, if you have gotten one of our prizes before she adds a little extra something in there sometimes!) We have had a TON of giveaways within the last month (around 30 prize packages are going out since July) AND we just moved to a much bigger office! So I promise we are moving as fast as we can!
And we are finalizing the Card Design Team Call. It was not easy and this weekend we poured through them again to make some final decisions. There are so many talented card makers out there!!!

Today we have a layout for you from our very own Mindy! Look at all those cool impressions about Halloween and all things spooky and fun! Just and and you have an awesome and easy layout.
