Core-dinations & Imaginisce Week-long Blog Hop!


Happy Monday! If you are here from the fabulous Debbie Standard's blog, you are in the right place because Imaginisce and Core'dinations are teaming up all this week for a fun and crafty blog hop!

For my hop project, I really wanted to create something using a photo of the rugrat from his first trip to a planetarium. We got a great shot of him looking for Jupiter though a giant telescope and I decided that, instead of a traditional layout, I would make a frame that he could keep in his room.


I used one of the awesome stickers from the Outdoor Adventures collection from Imaginisce and paired it with the absolutely darling Spotted Core'dinations embossed cardstock. After sanding the embossed dots with the cool sanding tool, I was left with a terrific textured background paper that was perfect for my dual frame. I also die-cut some stars from the cardstock to go along with my project, which added more visual interest.
