Today on the Core' blog is my official reintroduction. I was so thrilled and relieved to see my name on the DT list again. I really don't know what I'd do with out Core'dinations Cardstock. Over the last 2 years this paper has become an essential part of my style. I love experimenting with it, there are just so many ways to customize it and make it work with any style. There is just no way I could go back to anything else.

For our introductions each design team member was asked to create an all about me layout and this is mine.

Here are some close ups of the things that make this Cardstock so special. the circle pattern is created by cutting a repeated design with my cricut using a dull blade and a shallow setting and then sanding.

The starfish is created with an embossing folder that sandwiches the paper and photo together.

The sand squiggles are the hammered embossing folder technique, one of my new favorites for joining embossing folder patterns.

I am looking forward to another incredible year with this team, with fresh faces and new ideas. Take a minute to pop by the Core'dinations Blog to say hello and welcome new and old team members you are sure to be inspired.

Products used: Lot's of Core'dinations :) and Basic Grey
