Xyron and Core'dinations Blog Hop - Day Two and a Giveaway!

Day two of the Xyron/Core'dinations blog hop is here - and we are loving the rich colors and the gorgeous textures we've seen in the projects so far.  Today is no exception - so get ready to get inspired!

Core'dinations and handmade cards are the perfect match - and Courtney Lee shows us how the luxurious patterns in Core'dinations cardstock really add that special touch to any card.  On her blog today Courtney shares a tutorial on how to create this precious thinking of you card and the touching story behind it. She also has a fun "peek-a-boo" Halloween card to share!

A handmade tag makes any gift a little more special.  This one from Stacy Rodriguez would be perfect attached to a loaf of fresh pumpkin bread or some homemade jam - and she shows you how to make it on her blog today!

Sharon Callis loves Core'dinations so much that she did six cards for this blog hop.  Yup - SIX!  This beauty is just a teaser - head on over to her blog for a variety of fun card ideas.

What goes better with a beautiful card than a matching gift bag?  Yvonne Yam made this lovely set and shares a tutorial with us on her blog today - look at all that texture and color!
