core'dinations blog hop: day one

♥ ♥ ♥ W E L C O M E ! ♥ ♥ ♥


if you're here for the first ever caardvarks /core'dinations blog hop, there are details below showing where you are now, and where you go next. there's even more info back at the caardvarks blog, so if you get confused--or just need some caard-making inspiration--head on back there!

but before you go anywhere, why not have a look at a special party hat i've made using core'dinations fabulous new whitewash collection cardstock and a whole bunch of scraps and ribbons and tiny embellishments from my stash!

i used a scor-it board to create a diamond cross-hatch pattern on some pale pink whitewash cardstock, and sanded it a bit to get more dimension and contrast. and then...wellllllllllll...then i went a little bit crazy in the decoration part of the process, because a girl can never have too much pink, too much party, or too much *BLING*!!!

(cardstock: core'dinations whitewash collection; glitter paper: doodlebug; scalloppy edged: deja views; transparency: hambly; large flowers & leaves: oriental trading co; tiny flowers: prima; sticky pearls: kaiser; diecut felt flower ribbon: queen & co; light pink gems & pink daisies on top of hat: heidi swapp; ribbon, pom pom trim & dark pink gems: michaels other: vintage buttons, dymo labeller)

and now...BLOG HOPPERS...here's a reminder
of the running order:
Lauren(you are here!)

♥♥♥ HOP TILL YOU DROP ! ♥♥♥
