Creating Textured Backgrounds

Thanks to Sasha allowing me to hijack her layouts again - we bring you - TEXTURED background.  According to Sasha - its therapeutic,  its fun - even down to the flaps that stick out!  Hee hee... How does one do it?  Just cut the pp in small little squares,  ink the sides and then paste it on randomly - totally easy peasy...  but the effects - totally COOL!  Do try it!

Digital Scrappers DT Call

My friend Zakirah is on the lookout for a new digiscrapper DT team.  Details are as follows:

Call for: Hybrid/Digi layout team members for Matahati Designs
Store link:
Blog link:
Call ad:

Call details: I'm looking to add a few hybrid & digital scrappers to my
Creative Team. Your duty as a creative team member is basically to create
projects (hybrid team) and layouts (digital team). Minimum requirement is
one project (hybrid team) and one layout (digital team) per product
downloaded. I don't have a minimum monthly project/layout requirement per
month, so you can scrap as many or as little as you wish. Quality is more
important than quantity, and I encourage you to create projects/layouts
that you'll treasure and not just to meet team requirements (that's why my
requirement is very little - I don't want to pressure you). I accept
applications from everyone, and you can be from anywhere in the world.

Apply by: March 15, 2009.

Email your apps to:

Please put "Hybrid/Digi CT Call" as your subject.

I'm looking forward to review your applications!

Using Coredinations with the Cuttlebug Embossing

Layout made for SK forum challenge. 

I played with the coredinations cardstock today.  What is the unique feature of this cardstock?  When you sand the coredinations cardstock - it reveals an inner cs which is white in nature - giving it a unique distressed look.

Here,  I folded the cardstock and embossed the cardstock in my cuttlebug machine.  Then I sanded the embossed surface and voila - check out the texture revealed.  I love the effects.
