Imaginisce and Core'dination Cardstock Blog Hop

I was so excited to get to work with Core’dinations Cardstock this month, I love it.  I have wanted to scrapbook these photos of the deer that visit the cabin every year and I knew the Outdoor Collection by Imaginisce would be the perfect line for them. 

 
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the cardstock and added strips of it along the bottom of the layout.  Then for a border for the photos I created some fun leaves from the cardstock. 
 
To create them cut different size squares from the Core’dinations Cardstock, fold in half then cut out a leaf shape. 
 
The fun part about Core’dinations Cardstock is when you sand it you get a different color that comes through. Once I cut out the leaf shape I sanded the centre line where it was folded and the edges. 
 
 
 
I added the title and used the Imaginisce paper with the chevron type design to add arrows to draw your eye to the photos. 
 
 
 
I had so much fun this week and there are so many amazing projects to hop to.

Great layout! The colors you used compliment your photos wonderfully! I love the leaves you cut out and sanded. They add the perfect touch to the layout. Also love the chevrons being used as arrows! That's a great idea I plan on using soon! Thank you for sharing!
