Bikini Time for Couture Creations and Core'dinations Blog Hop!!!!!

I love doing blog hops they are so fun to see what others create using some of the same mutual products. The design teams from Couture Creations and Core'dinations will be sharing all week projects that will inspire you to use your dies, embossing folders and core papers from both Couture Creations and Core'dinations in some fun ways. Today as a design team members for Couture Creations sharing I will be sharing with you a layout sketch on  Couture Creations Pinterest account. 
Don't you just love the sketch...make sure if you love Pinterest to check out the other fabulous ideas.
I started my project by running some of the green and blue Vintage Collections from Core'dinations through my Fubu Embossing folder from the Sweet Dreams Couture Creations Collections.
I sand each of my green vintage papers using my sanding block and wiping the dust off with Core'dinations Dust is a fabulous.
I then took several of the flag stickers off of my sticker sheet, placed them on the blue vintage paper from Core'dinations and ran them through my die cut machine with the Fubu Embossing Folder.
I once again sanded them off using my sanding block and wiped them the Dust Bunny.
I cut around the flags with my Couture Creations Precision Scissors.
I cut a fish tall flag from one off my embossed green vintage paper that had been sanded and distress and attached it to the top of my dry brushed and distressed pattern paper using Couture CreationsTwo Sided Tape.
I added some more of the stickers, punched out paper borders to the top of fishtail tag, along with the banners that I had embossed to the top of my photos with Couture Creations Foam Tape.
I wanted to make sure you see that I distressed the top piece of pattern paper prior to placing it on another piece of pattern paper. I achieved this look by going around the edge with my Precision Scissors making sure that some of the paper was torn. I added some Couture Creation Bling to the top of my border and a fussy cut bird from a piece of the pattern paper.
I hope you enjoyed my Bikini Time Layout today and make sure to check out the other designers blogs as well as Couture Creations and Core'dinations Blogs...I am sure you will want to follow them for more fabulous and creative ideas. Hugs Pammejo
