The other night I was able to play with a few papers from this collection and came up with this layout of Ema and her little friend, Charlotte. I also got to use the new Sand It Gadget tool that Core'dinations has made for sanding their cardstock. It comes with replacement pads so it keeps your cost down in the long run. Love that!
If you'd like to win one of the new Core Impressions Collection packs, be sure to scroll down for my posting on how to win. You have until Friday, January 21, 2011, to be in to win!
Also, check back with me on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, when I will be featuring another project using the new Core Impressions lines. It's something special that I am cooking up for Tips and Technique Tuesdays for Scrapbook & Cards Today.

Helmar, if you don't already know about them, offer up great adhesives and, a favourite of mine, layering tape! Yes. It's true. I have a serious addiction to layering tape. I find it adds dimension to my work and, in the case of this frame, allows light to cast a shadow on raised elements.
Here's a frame that I made for Ema's new "big girl room". I used a frame from IKEA (I think I paid less than $10 for it) and Core'dinations cardstock. Several of the butterflies have layering tape added to the back of their wings. I also used my Helmar tape runner to adhere the body/torso section of the butterfly directly to the background. This helps to emphasize the fluttering of the wings. Jillibean Soup corrugated letters look even better with a little layering tape placed behind them as well. ;0)Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (Core Essentials and Vintage), Helmar layering tape and tape runner, Jillibean Soup corrugated alphas, ProvoCraft/Cuttlebug butterfly dies and embossing folders, Sizzix/Stampin' Up! butterfly embossing die, texture plate and border branch die, IKEA frame and Making Memories sanding block.

I need to print off some photos for November and December today and get this album in the "done" pile on my crafting table.
Happy New Year! May 2011 bring more "done" items in your own piles. ;0)
