I just love Tips and Tutorials. Today’s in no exception. Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley created this awesome layout today with her daughter. What better way to preserve memories than having your kids do it with you?!

If you want to see how to do this…keep reading! This is going to be two part series. Today we will be talking about how to make the title and the next part will be how to print on those cool Core Tags!

First, grab some Black Magic Cardstock and a stylus. Have your child press firmly and spell out there name. You can write lightly with a pencil if  you need to but very lightly. The pressure from the stylus will blend it in to the black cardstock.

Also, you need to work on a craft mat of some sort NOT a hard surface.  The stylus needs a soft surface so it can make an impression in the cardstock.

With your Sand It Gadget sand..sand …sand! Notice we are sanding the negative space. Doesn’t it look awesome?!

All you need to do is add some of your children’s art work and you have an awesome layout that not only preserves those memories of your children but truly makes them a part of it.

Other products used: Core Tags, Spotted Collection, Whitewash Cardstock.

and a close up…loving that black splatter against the Whitewash! Don’t be afraid to get out that Sand It Gadget and really sand that Whitewash to get that color core to come through like Kim did here.

And Melissa Oliveira…the stitching is perfection…and the touch of May Arts ribbon and the Posie Cardstock from Jenni Bowlin is so sweet with this layout!

And Lydia Jackson uses the touch of Graphic45 Core Impressions along with top of this layout…

Check out the awesome details…Lydia used her Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder on this layout and then inked over top of it for a really fabulous distressed feel. The sanded parts of the Core really pick up the inking.  Lydia also used her Spellbinder’s Label Die and printed her journaling directly on it. LOVE the tone on tone…fabulous!  OOOH and some May Arts Ribbon 🙂

I would love to try out some Tim Holtz Kraft Core.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone that has been commenting. We appreciate you coming here every day!

Now, today is all about Whitewash. {SIGH} This is one of my favorite lines {though I do say that about all of them so I am not sure if that is a great reference} Design Team Member April Derrick. April really does an amazing job on this layout showcasing how beautiful Whitewash is. It is gorgeous on it’s own or layered with other sheets like April did here. She really sanded those leaves so that  pop right off the page.

See you tomorrow!
