First up we have Mary Pat Siehl with a layout using the Seasons Autumn layout. She really embraces the Autumn color palette with the rusts and reds and I love that touch of navy blue!

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I think is is the beautiful rich colors that are all around!  Core and Authentique are such a great pairing becuse of the beautful textures and colors that both companies have.  For today I made a fall layout with the new collection from Authentique and I paired it up with some Core Amour and Core Impressions Jillibean Soup.  The colors really mixed well and the texture it provided just made the layout!

Fall is here and we are all about scarves..sweaters..all things warm including coffee!  Well, Suzanna really made this layout in July and it’s of iced coffee but that’s okay ;)  That allows me to  point out the fact that she used her brown journal marker right on her Core Amour…it’s pre embossed but that’s okay! Don’t be afraid to embrace that texture and write right over it ;)

And can we just talk about the perspective of that photo? What a beautiful shot.

What else  screams fall but picking currants?  Designer Shaunte Wadley adds so much gorgeous detail to this layout using her Lifestyle Crafts dies and Tim Holtz Kraft Core Shattered cardstock. The Graphic 45 are the perfect touch to add vintage  elements to this project.

Inking with Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered Collection

So our  BRAND NEW Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Shattered collection is so cool!  If you love Tim Holtz products and Kraft-Core then you will undoubtedly love this collection, too. You can use it as is or do fun techniques to it just like Design Team Member Debbie Standard did on this layout. Inks soak up into the the kraft and leaves the crackle finish…it is SO COOL! Check it out….

Here is a little bit about this layout from Debbie:

In creating this page I used some Core’dination’s Tim Holtz Kraft Core to start with.  I sanded it all over to start and then wanted to create clouds. To make them I put a piece of cloud chipboard behind the paper where I wanted the clouds and again sanded over the chipboard – moved it and sanded again until I got the effect that I wanted. Along the bottom portion of the sanded background, I stamped with a checked stamp.  Then I used some of the new Tim Holtz Shattered Collection.

Some of the  lighter sheets are just perfect for inking!  I needed two different colors so the center portion I inked using some light brown inks.  Then on this other section I wanted more of the turquoise so I inked this piece with some blues.  Keep inking until you get the color you want.  I just love how this Shattered collection looks when you ink it! You can use ANY color you want…it makes this collection so versatile!


Here are some close-ups:

Can you see the blue ink and the brown ink?

How cool are these clouds?  You can do this outlining technique with ANY KIND of chipboard!

HERE is a video to see how it’s done:

And a shot of the stamping:

Here you can see the different inks  Debbie used against each other:

We hope you can get creative with the Tim Holtz KRaft-Core Shattered!

It’s shipping NOW!

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!
