More Mother’s Day Celebrations

Filed under Core Blog, Provocraft, Tim Holtz

Today we have a beautiful layout from Design Team Member Debbie Standard about her mother. This layout just captures the spirit of the celebration of mothers and all they mean to us.

Debbie used Tim Holtz Kraft-Core and sanded it and then smeared some  ink as her background. Debbie always uses punches and such neat finishing touches to her layouts for amazing details.

Debbie also created a card that would be perfect for anyone in your life. The color combo is gorgeous and the mix of embossing folders rocks! Don’t be afraid to mix geometric patterns like Debbie did on this card …looks fabulous!  Especially the pop of teal in the Vintage cardstock against the Core Essentials and how she matted each piece with red. See…it’s in the details!

It’s the Luck of the Irish

Here on the Core blog this week!

We have  a special treat from Core Teacher Vicki Boutin for you today!

What a way to to show off all the amazing colors and textures of Core’dinations cardstock. Our color families core’dinate in each line so you can mix and match them easily.

Here is a little bit about this layout from Vicki:

“We love St Patrick’s Day around here.  Not for the traditional reasons as much as the fact that it is my son Riley’s birthday!!!  We wear the green, get the Shamrock shakes from McDonalds and enjoy celebrating a “green” birthday.  So when I received a box of new Core’dinations I knew I wanted to put something together for a St Paddy’s Day layout.
I cut out a large shamrock shape for a base.  I then proceeded to punch a bunch of circles from Core Couture , Gemstones, Vintage, Spotted Jillian and Tillie and Core Essentials.  I layered the circles from the bottom of the shamrock up.
(insert close up)
Love how this turned out!!!  I used the back of Tim Holtz Kraft Core and a sheet of Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions for the base.
Hope you get into the St Patrick’s Day fun and make something special to commemorate the day!”
