Core'dinations and Lawn Fawn Week

Core'dinations Cardstock and  Lawn Fawn would like to share a week of inspirational designs with all creative souls.

Unconditional Love

Those furry babies in our homes provide unconditional love at all times.  Just the brand name “Lawn Fawn” can conjure up visions of fur babies!
This layout features Coredinations Black Magic and Amour, Jenni Bowlin cardstock.  The addition of the Lawn Fawn stamps and pattern paper collection Dewey Decimal truly complements my photo so well.

Here is some step up photos of my creative process.  I have discovered an easy way to color cord/hemp to match your project.  Quick and easy tip.

I am thrilled to share my continued discovery of the hot glue treatment by fellow designer Vivian Keh.  Below you can see my process of achieving Doby’s name using the Black Magic Core’dinations cardstock.

Recently we received some lovely products from Imaginisce and you can see I do love those glam rocks.  Clearsnap Ink sure does show well, by blending their ink using the Crafter’s Workshop Stencil and Inking up the Lawn Fawn stamps.  Couture Creations doily die blends so well with the workshop stencil, chicken wire.

Sending my love sentiment from the Lawn Fawn “So much to Say collection” truly resonates the feel of my photo.

Below, you can see a close-up of how much fun you can have being creative with the Black Magic Coredinations cardstock.

Finally, a close- up of the ruby red jewel tone color of the inner core of the Amour, Jenni Bowlin Core’dinations cardstock.  The addition of the glam rocks and stamp images by Lawn Fawn truly gives the whitewashed texture of the Core’dinations cardstock a ramped up devoted presentation. 

Love the matted pattern paper by Lawn Fawn around the photo.

 Now, who has a treat for the puppy?
