And here we have a wonderful holiday layout by Nancy Wethington. Nancy used our Core'dinations Signature Series ColorCore Cardstock that matches perfectly with all of our paper collections. Plus she combined Christmas Emporium with A Proper Gentleman to make an LO that's vibrant and unique. Combining different paper collections is a great way to create one-of-a-kind works of art that have capture your own unique style. Here is what Nancy had ot say about this festive craft gem!

"I love this Christmas photo of my son.  The blue packages under the tree reminded me of the blue stripe in A Proper Gentleman.  So I decided to mix things up a bit and combine the manly Dressed To The Nines with the beautiful Christmas Emporium papers.  It always amazes me how so many different Graphic 45 collections work so well together. For the background, I used Core'dinations cardstock for layers and then sanded the title piece so that the printed words would show. Using the Core'dinations Sand It Gadget and Dust Buddy makes sanding a breeze and clean-up easy!" -Nancy Wethington
