Hey everybody Tracy McLennon here today!

I am sharing a layout that I created using all sorts of fabulous product from Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock. Core’dinations is so much more than just beautiful cardstock. Check out these stunning patterned papers.




Here is the layout I created


Project Recipe:


  • Tim Holtz Ranger Distress Collection Cardstock
  • Teal Small Dot Patterned Paper
  • Grey Chevron Patterned Paper
  • Teal Quatrefoil Patterned Paper
  • Glitter Prints Inkjet Printable A7 Card

May Arts Ribbon

  • Silver and White Baker’s Twine
  • White Pom-Pom
  • White Mesh

Close To My Heart

  • Grey Wool Ink

American Crafts

  • Thickers – Pink Glitter Letters

Unknown tags


I love to create a layout with lots and lots of layers. When I am mixing and matching patterns I like to choose designs with contrast. If the patterns don’t have quite as much contrast, but I want them to appear together, I will often mat the pattern in a solid cardstock. This gives the pattern the definition it needs to stand out from other surrounding patterns.


I used the Core’dinations Glitter Prints A7 Card as a mat for my photo. I wanted to add that bit of sparkle to my layout. I also used it for my title block. I tore the edges of one of my photo mats, because it would be a shame if you didn’t see that stunning core colour!


I created a layered border from a combination of the oh so pretty May Arts Ribbon, cardstock and patterned paper.


Thanks so much for taking a closer peek at my Core’dinations creation!

    Beautiful layout! I’m not usually a fan of one picture layouts, but I really love this one. Your eye is still drawn to the photo, even with all the pretty layers (and the ribbon you used is gorgeous!).
