Hi there! I thought I’d share a very colorful layout with you today! I normally do not make layouts as busy as this, but I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and go for it!
Colorful Core Layout
To create this layout, the first thing I did was take out my trusty 110lb 12×12 White Core. My favorite cardstock on the planet earth by the way! I had my son and daughter paint it with water colors they got with a coloring book. I wanted a random background and since they are always asking to paint, I thought this was the perfect opportunity. After the paper was dry, I trimmed 1/2 in. off each side and adhered it to the light blue Gemstones Core.
Then using Black Magic Core I cut out this shape with my Silhouette. Then using my Sand It tool I sanded away on some of the hearts because I wanted the purple to show through. I used 6×6 Glitter Core to create the mini book on the album. I simply cut the pages down to 4×4 in. and stapled them together on the left hand side. I then took some We R Memory Keepers Sew easy twine and wrapped it around the book so you couldn’t see the staples. I also stapled the book to the layout before I added the picture on the last page. Once I added the picture on the last, you couldn’t see the staples anymore. I simply took a glitter clothespin I got from Michaels and used it to close the book. Below are the pages inside of the mini album. I used some Heidi Swapp Hello Today from Michaels to embellish the pages. I love using Core and Heidi Swapp products. They go perfectly together.
Below are some close ups of how nicely the Silhouette cut through the Black Magic Core and some Heidi Swapp embellishments.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a SUPER fun day!
