{Imaginisce & Core'dinations Blog Hop Week!}

There's a fun blog hop going on this week over on the Imaginisce and Core'dinations blogs. Hop on by both blogs each day to see all the wonderful projects everyone has made. There's so much inspiration!

This honestly was my first time using Core'dinations cardstock, and I must say I love how bright and brilliant the colors are and what beautiful texture it has! I'm hooked!
(cadstock: Cor'dinations, everything else Imaginisce)
For the bracket shape, I traced around an old piece of patterned paper (that was already that cute shape) onto the cardstock, then cut it out by hand. I machine stitched it to the paper for a fun custom look. I added a few strips of paper and embellishments from the Imaginisce Hippity Hop Collection. The day dreaming die cut was just perfect for this photo I took of Gracie day dreaming as she watched the cheerleaders ; ) Oh, and I can't forget to mention this, I backed my photo and the 3-D journaling with the packaging from the die cuts!

 Be sure to head over to the Imaginisce and Core'dinations blogs, they're doing some great giveaways!
As always, thanks for stopping by.

Great use of the large bracket. I haven't used Core'dinations cardstock before but I'm going to give it a try. I am a big fan of textured paper.
