We have three lovely projects today from our brilliant design team members Tara Orr, Robin Shakoor and Hilde Janbroers. Get ready to fall in love with this truly breath-taking works of art! First up is this elegant layout by Tara Orr. Here is what Tara had to say about this timeless work of art.

"While I'm not much of a cardstock gal, when I received the beautiful Timeless Collection from Core'dinations Core Impressions line, I was completely thrilled! Not only do the warm, earthy colours match seamlessly with Graphic 45 papers, the papers themselves are easily transformed into the most beautiful "patterned papers' with a little sanding. I used the beautiful filgrie pattern to frame my project and fussy cut out their beautiful vintage clocks and used as embellishments around my page." -Tara Orr

Next we have this wonderful frame by Robin Shakoor. This is a fabulous example of how seamless Core'dinations cardstock is with Graphic 45 papers and embellishments. They really are a perfect match! Here is what Robin had to say about this marvelous creation.

"I used the Curtain Call collection along with Core'dinations Cardstock to alter this elegant frame.  First, I painted the frame using black acrylic paint then sprinkled black glitter on top while the paint was still wet.  Next, I traced my frame pattern on color core cardstock, then trimmed.  I sanded the cardstock then lightly inked the surface using Distress Ink (Black Soot).  I cut images from the Curtain Call collection and trimmed the inside of my frame using May Arts ribbon.  To finish my frame, I added metal buttons to each corner. This was a fun and easy project using Graphic 45 and Core'dinations...what a perfect combination!" -Robin Shakoor

Here Hilde explains some of her techniques for creating this wonderful piece!

"I embossed the card with the Sizzix embossing folder and my Big Shot Machine. The size of the cards are a perfect fit with these embossing folders. Then I used Sand It paper to distress the card. I only added a small piece of paper on the card. The flower and chipboards will give the card the perfect vintage look." -Hilde Janbroers
