For this first layout, please forgive me for all the close up pics. I loved how this one turned out and I just couldn't pick which close ups I liked best. I used whitewash and chocolate box cardstocks on this project and used my cuttlebug to emboss with the small polka dot pattern and then of course did some sanding. The patterned paper, rub-ons, and stickers I used here are from the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry line.
|Here I added a small heart punched for my Core'dinations cardstock to tie in with my heart stickers. The photo is matted in plain white cardstock and then placed on an angle on top of mat made from Core'dinations, and sanded around the edges.|
|On this photo I gave it a double mat, the bottom one being out of Core'dinations. I then took my scoring board and scored a line around the mat to form a border.|
|I took this patterned paper, fussy cut it, and then cut matching ovals of the same size from Core'dinations cardstock, then embossed, sanded, and added a touch of shimmery baby pink paint from Making Memories.|
|This layout is created with the American Crafts "Spring" collection and of course Core'dinations whitewash cardstock. The base of my layout is the backside solid color of a piece of Core'dinations whitewash cardstock.|
This last layout is one I did recently, but not specifically for this design team call. I had used Core'dinations cardstock for it though so I just wanted to share since I hadn't had a chance to post it on my blog quite yet. I used Core'dinations for my base paper, American Crafts "Spring" collection for the patterned paper, Cuttlebug embossing folders, the Cricut, and Epiphany Crafts studio tools to create the epoxy hearts and acrylic buttons.
|Since I don't own a tool that would allow me to emboss a whole 12x12 sheet of paper, I simply took my cuttlebug embossing folder, opened it up and placed it underneath my paper and then just took my bone folder and started rubbing. I then took my sander and revealed the core color.|
