Words on Wednesday!

Each of our designers have a really unique style. People always ask what companies are looking for when it comes to teams and I think one of them is diversity.

Speaking of teams………..we are going to be announcing the names of our BRAND NEW Card Design Team any day now! Everyone has officially said, “yes” so we are ready to go. Exciting stuff!!!!

Design Team Member April Derrick not can not only work the Core but she has a unique style AND she always has the neatest titles on her projects. I don’t know about you but titles can be the hardest part of a layout. I recently scrapped some photos of our trip to New York City and all three layouts had the same title, “NYC”!

So today is all about words, ie, titles!

How fun is this title?  Makes me smile because this is something we can all relate to for sure.

And take a look at the bottom blue strip…April embossed and layered some mists on it. Love that texture!

And next up …another fun from April. Check all the cool details…first up I notice the sanding of the Whitewash right away and then April does a lot of tone on tone in her layouts. Then to whave her title stand out, she outlines them with marker.

We hope that we inspired you to get creative with those layouts and titles!

Work it Wednesday, Baby!

Happy Wednesday!

And when I mean work it..I mean WORK IT! Get out that Core and get busy ;)

Hope it is a great one. Not sure if you were over at our Facebook page today but we posted a card from Debbie Standard that is all about mixing Core’dinations collections.

And that is what Debbie did here, too! She takes the Black Magic cardstock and pairs it beautifully with some Whitewash. All you need to do is match up the cores..see how Debbie scored the frame on the Black Magic and that pink shows through after it is sanded. Add some Prima, Petaloo and Maya Road goodies and you have one fabulous layout. Notice there isn’t any patterned paper on this layout?

PS…we are working very hard on the Design Team Call applications. At this point we are trying to get it narrowed down by next week. It isn’t easy but we are working at it! So stay tuned!
