I love this color combo. This would be a great birthday present to win, since today is my birthday :)

So today we have layers and layers from Mary Pat Siehl.

First here is a little bit about Mary Pat:

My name is Mary Pat Siehl.  I am an avid paper crafter,  stamper, and card maker. I have been paper crafting for over 12 years.  It truly is a passion of mine.  I would descirbe my style as clean and simple, but this is not to say my style is boring.  I love to layer my papers and add all types of embellishments.  I love adding different textures to my layouts.   I am married to a wonderful man who totally supports my addiction to paper crafting. I have 2 boys  who keep me totally on the run and having fun. I am a high school teacher by day,  and I am in  my 24th year of teaching.  I live in beautiful Springboro, Ohio.  If I am not scrapping I am either hanging out with my 3 favorite guys or on the tennis courts.

Now Mary Pat’s layout..for more design inspiration make sure you check out her blog HERE!

I loved this idea of a bio layout.  I rarely make pages about myself.  I love using negative space so I used my Silhouette and cut out the thought bubbles.  I then backed them with sanded core’dinations cardstock.  I then made a border by scoring the outer edges and lightly sanded it.  I then lightly sanded the base cardstock to give it a slightly distressed feel.  Next, I cut out my title and once again lightly sanded it and then added my photo.  I then added some of my favorite embellishments at the moment.

Who LOVES Pinterest??? Well make sure you check out our Colour Lover’s Board and the other boards we have are FAB as well ;)  We love spending time on there pinning all the Core we find and the color palettes that inspire our team.

This one from Anthropolgie caught our fancy this month:

And here is what Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira came up with….a gorgeous combination of Tim Holtz Kraft Core and Adirondack lines. Remember…when using Core most of our lines “core’dinate” with each other so we make it easy for you  to mix and match colors!

I also wanted to post about a prize for our Colour Lover’s Monthly Inspiration. For the past few months we have issued a challenge around our Pinterest board called Colour Lover’s. Sorry for the confusion but we are not offering a prize for this challenge at this time due to our GRAND PRIZE GIVEAWAY going on right now. It’s HUGE…a value of over $700!!!! So make sure you enter today AND tell your friends! {when you enter it will give you the chance to send emails to your friends and  share on Facebook) The MORE we get signed up, the bigger and more frequent we giveaway prizes!

Book Club Ideas

I don’t know about you but I am an avid reader.

I love reading and I am always looking for friends that read so we can talk about books and share them, too!

Well, Design Team Member Char Dobson created these super fun projects for us today and they are all about your very own Book Club. Move over Oprah! ;)  Char used a  mix of Core Essentials and Tim Holtz Adirondack and Distress collections and her Cricut, of course!

See that gorgeous tag?  That is one of our tags from our Core Tag Collection in the Dark colors. And check out how Char stamped over the Basic Grey Core Impressions! What a great idea…add some ink to the edges and you have a fabulous invite.
