A Hop with Prizes at Core’dinations

Hello friends!  This week at Core’dinations we have some papercrafting excitement!  UPDATE: The Core’dinations blog is functional – hope you can stop by!

badgeA Blog Swap between Core’dinations and Couture Creations.  Using some of the brilliant colors from our Core’dinations Cardstock Collections and a lovely Doily Die from Couture Creations, I made this easy layout featuring the the star of our late spring garden, the “Lauren’s Grape” poppy.


What the heck?  That is a lot of white space for the Contadina lol!!! I chose a pure white background to allow the brilliant Core’dinations hues to shine and show off the detailed cuts from this delicate doily shape.  I must confess, the empty white space makes me happy just about as happy as my textured, colorful cluster.

VivianKehCoutureCreationsLayout_BI did some journaling  on a light green Core tag to document what was going on in our lives when this pic was shot, and some stamping of insects on a smaller yellow Core tag to remind myself how beloved these purple poppies were by the insects.  These are the poppies whose seedheads I’ve been painting recently!  The rectangular doily shape functioned as a great pocket, allowing the pretty pastel tags to show through.

Several strips of torn Core’dinations Colorcore Cardstock were also rolled up for some fun, cool, dimensional embellishments!  And I also added a bit of nature stamping and the tiniest title ever – this is one of my all time favorite sentiments that helps me remember to fully occupy and savor today.


Make sure to visit the Core’dinations blog today to see inspirations from both our talented team and our friends at Couture Creations.  Need I mention, there are some opportunities for spectacular prize packs if you hop with us this week!
