Core'dinations and Couture Creations Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 5 of the Couture Creations & Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock Blog Hop! 

We’re so excited to team up with Core’dinations Color Core Cardstock to share some inspiring projects with you this week, marrying our products together.
Hi it's Patti I wanted to take this opportunity to create a page with our beautiful new Granddaughter who was born June 12!!! She is absolutely precious and the Pastel Core'dinations papers were perfect for a baby girl layout!

This is my finished project, I used lots of Couture Creations and Core'dinations on this. I think this photo is just so sweet and I wanted to keep the focus on the photo itself.

I started out by cutting four 5.5 inch squares of the pastel cardstock. I used the Hyper Magical embossing folder on each one. I placed them for my background and "faux" stitched around them with my Zig markers. I die-cut scallop squares using the second and third largest size. I used the Glitter cardstock for the smaller and a coordinating color of the 6x6 cardstock. I outlined them with my Zig markers. I then placed them on the page leaving space for a 4x6 photo. I used different embellishments on each square. I used a die-cut dragonfly on the yellow and blue, then used buttons and punched blooms. The leaves were cut from a scrap of the Hyper Magical embossed cardstock that was left over.

Here is a close-up of the title. I just used chipboard pieces and 5 punched blooms with Glitzin' Glamour in matching colors for the centers.

Here is a close-up where you see a punched bloom and also some of the embossing.

Here you can see the different embossed layers and the little bloom and dragonfly. It all layers together beautifully.

I took one of the smaller Pastel Core-dination Tags and wrote the basic information on it. I used a couple of pieces of Couture Creations foam tape to give it some dimension.

Here is another detail of some of the embellishments I used, this is a piece of the embossed folder cut out.

Here is one where I used a button and twine!!!

One more close-up showing another button, part of the tag and some detail of the embossing. I love the look of the coordinating colors of Glitter and regular cardstock.

I used Gemstones in matching colors on the bodies of the dragonflies. I just drew the little antennae with my Zig marker.

Here is the title again, the little punched blooms
