We are almost done unpacking and doing all of the things that are involved with a big move…but of course I am still playing catch up and imagine I will be for quite a while. My computer is still at the old place because I am having a heck of a time getting my Internet hooked up at the new place and it’s driving me a little bit insane not being able to work on things when I want to. So my blogging has suffered a little too, but hopefully all will be back to normal here shortly. Today I am sharing two new layouts I recently created using Core’dinations cardstock. Both of them display photos of my friends beautiful children and I feel lucky that she let me scrap them for her!
* Here’s the supply list for the first layout:
- Core’dinations Cardstock: Core Essentials & Core Impressions (Jenni Bowlin Studio Collection: Everyday)
- Pink Paislee Stickers & Embellishments
- Studio Calico Wood Embellishments
- Other: Washi Tape (unknown source), rhinestones, twine, vellum
* So I have been trying to get hooked up with inlinkz so I can post the pretty little picture thumbnails for my supply lists and I even spent an hour on it today thinking I would get to use it for this post for the first time today…but for whatever reason, it does not seem to like me! Something was not working right and I don’t know why, but I will just have to keep trying until I get it right…hopefully soon because I really want to start using it in my posts!! Anyway, until then, I will just have to keep inserting my typed supply lists…
* Supply List for “Sisters” layout:
- Core’dinations Cardstock: Core Essentials
- Hambly Screen Prints: Patterned Paper
- Heidi Swapp: Patterned Paper from Sugar Chic Collection
- Studio Calico: Chipboard Butterflies
- Tim Holtz: Chit Chat

- Other: Raw chipboard, Black gesso, Twine, Sequins, Little sticks of wood, Washi tape, Office Tag, & Pop dots
* One of the little tricks I have picked up while using all my Core, is that you can actually achieve a lot of neat effects just by sanding the cardstock in different ways. For instance, this particular sheet of cardstock had a cream/yellowish colored core, so I sanded very lightly around the edges moving my block inward slowly towards the middle while I was doing it…but I didn’t go to far, and I didn’t sand it all the same around all four of the edges. In return, this gave me a nice warm almost sunset looking type effect after all was said and done!
* Next week, I will be posting a new project every single day because both Core’dinations and Stampendous have decided to pair up for the week and share inspiration with everyone. I am super excited about this and just hope that I can make both of my teams proud. I am need of some crafty time for sure after all this moving and my craft desk is just begging to be used in it’s new little space!
