Hi Creative Friends,

Happy New Year to you all, I hope your Christmas break was full of fun!  I am back on the blog today with a new share for Cocoa Vanilla Studios and its something a little different!

The Bouquet paper from the Love Always collection is one of my very favourites and the design for this page was inspired by it.  I wanted to play on the design of the paper and I knew I wanted to use it in the background.  I had a full sheet for my background, and then when I found a scrap, I had the idea to fussy cut it following along with the chevron design and then mount it on foam tape on top of the background page.  This then set the base for my photo mat and embellishments.  To make it stand out from the background, I added some Colour Blast Shimmer Cube from my stash just around the edge.

Next, I wanted to lock in the position of my photo mat, I began with my paper layers using the Twin Set, Frolic and Class Act papers layered up on the right-hand side. To balance out the design, I added my tile to the left-hand side. ¬†It is made up of¬†some alphas from my stash, the Chipboard Accent Stickers and the word “sweet” is from the Wood Veneer pack.

I’ve also used Die Cut Ephemera pieces, Accessory Stickers, Puffy Stickers, Vellum Accents and Bitty Blooms¬†to build 2 main embellishment clusters. ¬†This collection as so many embellishment options, it’s hard not to choose all the things! ¬†Below you can see a cute Puffy Sticker and a Chipboard piece.

I’ve also added a flair button¬†and some sparkly enamel dots to finish and the page was done. ¬†Below you can see another one of those cute Puffy Stickers, the stunning vellum and a bitty bloom.

Thanks for popping by today, I hope 2018 brings you a wonderful adventure.. and that you take the time to document it!

Until next time,
