Blog Hoppin' Takes Core'dination

hahahaha, how do you love my title!?!  
I actually won 1st place in UIL Divisional "Headline" writing in High School
ah ha...yep, I'm too smart for my own good (tic)
But pardon my digression...
It's time for the 
Imaginisce + Core'dinations Blog Hop Week
The hop started yesterday, so be sure to hop on over and leave comments on both manu's blogs to be in the running for some terrific prizes :)

I'll be honest and say that I haven't worked with Core'dinations Cardstocks before this.  The weight and texture alone is reason enough to give it a try...couple that with the beautiful things that you can do with Core and you'll be hooked!  I didn't stray too much into the diversity of the product, so check out what the rest of the Imaginisce Design Team came up with!


 For my first project, I created this Spring wall hanging...cute, eh?
For the base I used a Core'dinations cardstock and lightly sanded around the edges.
I then added accents from the Imaginisce Hippity Hop Collection, as well as fabric covered I Top brads...have you I Topped yet?  If you haven't, then you should put it into your papercrafting bucket list!



 Okay, my middle son loathes this layout...just loathes it.  It was taken last year and yes he has grown several inches and lost several pounds 
 (disclaimer: before I could post this layout I had to agree to his terms in stating the above *wink*)
Now, back to business...
I used Core'dinations for the base page, then took the beautiful green Core and trimmed them into trees.  I embossed them and lightly sanded the little dots.  I love the whimsy that it adds to the layout :)  I used a white cardstock with a yellow core and cut them into clouds and then sanded.
The cute patterned papers are from the Imaginisce Happy Camper Collection.  
Imaginisce + Core'dinations= A Sweet Combination!

Happy Creating!
