7/31 Core'dinations Back to School Layout

Happy Tuesday!

Our assignment from Core'dinations this month was to make a School layout or project.  I had these photos of my son on his first day of school last year and so I broke them out and got busy.  Love an awesome assignment!  My creative juices were flowing.  Here is what I came up with.

First, I layered my Core cardstock and sanded pretty heavily the grey piece.
 Next, I ran some strips of cardstock in my embossing folder and sanded that.  I love to sand!!
 Here is my finished project.  I added an apple from Some Odd Girl to help embellish the layout.  I also had some odds n ends from LYB.
I have a video to share on how this layout came about.

7/29 Core'dinations Bottle Tag

Happy Tuesday!

This past weekend we were invited to a friend's house for dinner and I wanted to bring a bottle of Sangria for dinner.  So of course this gave me an opportunity to make a fun bottle tag. I remembered that Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is having a fun challenge - Emboss It!  I love embossing so I broke out my Core'dinations and my embossing folders!  How fun!!

I cut all the elements out on my Silhouette and then started to emboss!  I first embossed the blue background using a new embossing folder from Lifestyle Crafts.  I then embossed the leaves of the flower using a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Since  used my Core'dinations cardstock I then sanded all my elements.  Finally I stamped my sentiment and called it a day!

7/28 Lawn Fawn Watercolor Challenge

Happy Monday!

Lawnscaping has a really fun fun challenge up-Watercolors!

At first I thought I would make a card but then I really wanted to use the Hello Sunshine collection on a layout.  So I broke all my Lawn Fawn goodies out and make this layout- Oh Happy Day!


I used my watercolor paints in yellows, oranges and blue to mimic the sun peeking out of the clouds.  I really had fun making it and I so love playing with the Lawn Fawn papers.  This is my first time making a layout with the LF papers and I sooo love them!

I have a video on how I made this layout;

July 25 Core'dinations Teacher Card

Happy Friday!

So happy that today is the weekend!  Love it when the hubby is home and we can all hang together!  Should be fun time.  Not a bunch on our agenda!  Jack is entering his first tennis tournament.  I am both excited and nervous for him.  The good thing is that he is not nervous at all!  Should be fun!

School is starting in some places soon.  I have 3 more weeks left :( !  I thought I would make this super fun Teacher card.  I used a Silhouette cut file and my awesome Core'dinations Core Essentials collection.  For the sentiment I used a The Alley Way Stamps.
