Happy Monday everyone!
Today we have two layouts from Designer Suzanna Lee using our Core Impressions. The great thing about these lines is that you can sand them or not sand them. So we thought we would give you to examples of each. The first one uses the BasicGrey Core Impression Whimsy collection not sanded.
The fun thing about Core is you can sand some …and not sand others ..all in the same layout like Suzanna did here. She sanded the tone on tone stars and scallop shape in red to make them pop off of each other and then left her Core Impressions as is. Don’t forget to get out your Sand it Gadget when you decide to sand It’s repositional sand paper pieces make it so easy to use!

Every month we challenge our designers to try new things. It might be a collection pack, techniques…something different just to get those creative juices flowing. So for July, we challenged our designers to use the Brights Collection pack and to do some fussy cutting for some added interest. Cut those stamps…cut those embossed images…you name it the sky is the limit!
The Brights collection pack is the PERFECT color palette for all your summer layouts and projects! Don’t be afraid of those bright colors..embrace them!
First up we have a tutorial from Designer Kate Nolan-Denham on how she cut out some stamped images from her Brights Cardstock. This is a super easy way to create your own embellishments, don’t you think?
Stamp directly on the Core texture side. Looks awesome!
LOVE that thick outlined image you get from the stamping…
And since circles seem to be a theme for a lot of our team right now, we thought we would share a layout from Design Team Member Gail Linder using our Brights Collection pack for this very challenge as well! Here is a little bit about this layout from Gail:
Okay, well, Gail didn’t fussy cut her own details but you get the idea. We LOVE our Silhouette Cameo here at Core. There are so many amazing things you can do with it!
And one from Design Team Member Debbie Standard. Debbie anchored her Brights Collection with some Whitewash. And how about all that embossing and sanding! Fabulous…every detail is just amazing! Debbie combines multiple embossing folders form Darice, her Fiskars Paper crimper, outlining on the layout base, die cuts….you name it!
Stay tuned for tomorrow for some more fun in the sun layouts with our Brights Collection pack!
What a great day…the sun is shining…only a few more days until Friday…what more can we ask for? WELL, Designer Debbie Standard has some layouts for you today.
This layout brought a smile to my face today. First up the Cosmo Cricket Woodgrain background…and the colors…yellow…gray…and that pop of red are just awesome! Oh and you cannot forget about the Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions. Debbie hand cut those details for her title and subtitles.
And how cute is this??? Debbie was inspired by all the sunburst layouts she has been seeing on Pinterest. SPEAKING of Pinterest…make sure you follow us on our page HERE! What a great way to use up those scraps of Core you have in your bin. AND all those lush embossed (and sanded of course!) designs are gorgeous, gorgeous!
Debbie cut, embossed and sanded each section and then created the sunburst effect along the top. Then she added the Stacy Julian Core Impressions pre-embossed words along the side. Then she added some clouds that she die cut using the Whitewash collection which makes really great clouds by the way because you can lightly sand them and bring out the blue tones.

Cardstock, Cardstock and more Core’dinations Cardstock makes for GREAT layers, don’t you think? Just that small border that Mary Pat Siehl created with the Darks collection pack colors instantly starts to draw your eye in and of course, the scoring!
And here is a little bit about this layout from Designer Mary Pat Siehl AND there’s a card yet, too!
First up today we have some fun stuff for you.
So we have some more ideas for you for Father’s Day. Love this idea from Jennifer Edwardson…it can be used for ANY occasion…at tri-fold card! Of course, it is full of tons and tons of gorgeous Core’dinations Cardstock!
Here is a little bit about this project from Jennifer:
I am pretty new to the Silhouette game but have been having so much fun finding new pieces to cut out and turn into great projects !! I loved this folding card and thought it would be great to add a couple of photos to as a gift…..It would look so cute on a shelf, mantle or bedside table too !!
I cut the base using the Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection (No.23) and then ran either end thru my die cutting machine with swirly embossing folder. Then I sanded off the top layer to show the kraft underneath as well as the edges of the base too. I cut a few more doilies out as well and embossed both sides of the same cardstock and sanded off the top layer to those as well.
I punched a few flowers from some of the Core Essentials that coordinated with my photos and layered all the pieces together finishing them off with a little circle punched from my fave Core Couture in Black Tie. I added a couple of Core Couture butterflies and some clear gems from the David Tutera Celebrate collection too !! I really love how this all came together and can’t wait to give this to the kids’ grandparents
