Hi Creative Friends,
Here today to share with you my latest project for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I thought for this layout, I’d try and combine something from an older collection with the new MORE THAN WORDS collection. Zoe always does a fab job of not only giving us something fresh and new but also having it work with what we have and I love that! I also have to add here that I was itching to use the divine RADIANT paper with those paintbrush strokes on it and in fact, it is the only pattern paper I use for this one!
The next thing I pulled from my stash was the Chipboard Frames from the Wild At Heart collection. There were quite a few bold patterns in this collection, however, there were also some really lovely watercolour elements and softer tones too. I pulled the ones I thought the best fit with the colours in the RADIANT paper and set them out on my page.
Now came the fun bit! I had a heap of candid shots taken of Miss 11 at a family Christmas party last year and whilst there wasn’t really a shot that stood out to me to belong on a page by itself, the shots as a group told of the pure joy she was having at the time. They were the perfect choice to fill up some of the frames I had pulled for my page.
It took a little bit of juggling to decide which photo should go where; the one photo where she was looking at the camera became my main photo and the others filled in the gaps. With a design element like this, once it is sorted the rest of the page comes together really quickly.
Next was my title, for this I used the Chipboard Sticker pack which included both words “Wonderful” and “moments” – for my title, I simply left off the last ‘S’ to make it “Wonderful Moment”.
I have then added a few other Chipboard pieces including the sentiment “You Make My Heart Sing” and a bunch of chipboard hearts. I also pulled some flowers and butterflies from the Die Cut Epherma pack. I love how on one photo it looks like she is looking at the butterfly!
This finished out the page, a nice and quick layout for me which I love! I am loving seeing everyone’s creations using the new collection, be sure to keep sharing them with us on the Facebook page!
Until next time,
