A Year In Review With May Arts and Core'dinations!


This week, the ladies over at May Arts got to play with some amazing Core'dinations goodness.  We've each whipped up a little something to hopefully inspire you and we'll be sharing that with you all week---so, be sure to check back each day for more!

And there may just be a giveaway.

We're talkin' Core'dinations.

And May Arts.

Just sayin'.

Ok, now on with the show!

As we inch ever closer to 2015, I find myself looking back.  I love taking a peek at everything that's happened this year, and I LOVE seeing it captured in pictures---so, I found myself smack dab in the middle of my Instagram feed :-)

This mini book---inspired by my favorite insta-photo-sharing site---is filled with my top 20 moments from 2013.

I've layered May Arts wired burlap ribbon and Core'dinations cardstock in coordinating colors to create the camera cover.  A bit of sanding adds a more worn/vintage feel.

The rainbow stripes really help my title stand out.  Plus, who doesn't like a rainbow??

And finally, a hand full of sequins adds a bit of FLASH!  Hee hee.  Ya see what I did there?  Because cameras flash?!!?

May Arts supplies used:

Other supplies used:
clear craft sequins
Bind-It-All coils - 1 inch
Aleene's tacky glue
Recollections heart punch

Alrighty, then!!  I do hope you've found some inspiration here today.  And don't forget to stop back in all this week for more May Arts and Core'dinations goodness.

OH!  And tune back in tomorrow for a video sneaky peek of how this project came together and a look at the inside this sweet little book.
