My first layout (above) features Core Impressions Cosmo Cricket Neutrals and Jenni Bowlin Red and Black collections. These pre-embossed notepads are by far my favorite products from Core'dinations. I love that they color and theme-match with so many different paper companies. For those of use who started out by embossing all our own designs, these ready-made versions are fast and easy! I especially love sanding and inking over the designs. My second project is a card for my lovely niece Lauren who turns 22 tomorrow. Like her, it's a little bit vintage and a LOT glam! I did all the embossing on Black Magic Core'dinations and added a border strip of Core Couture for extra zing. There's even an extra backing piece of purple Vintage Collection in there! And bling. Did I mention bling? My final project features more Vintage Collection for the die cut title and blue flowers. I matted all the photos using yummy brown and red Chocolate Box Core'dinations.
The title block was cut from more Core Impressions Cosmo Cricket Neutrals. I love how it looks like weathered driftwood, just perfect for my tropical theme.
The flower in the middle is made from the Whitewash Collection. I love how this cardstock holds up so well to distressing and all the fiddling used to create handmade flowers.
I was honored to share some projects on the Core'dinations blog back in February. Those two projects have become some of my favorites ever! I also have several other Core'dinations projects in my gallery. I would be thrilled and honored to be chosen as a member of the next Core'dinations Design Team. Thanks for giving me a chance to share my work! Good luck to everyone who applies. ☺
