Hi Creative Friends,
Super excited to be sharing today my first page using the latest collection “Happiness” from Cocoa Vanilla Studios! I am so in love with the colours and elements in this collection, it really is a must-have! It was so perfect to document this sweet shot of my daughter.
As soon as I saw the papers in the collection, I was immediately drawn to this one called ‘Sprinkles’. It has this divine mixed media look to it but it’s soft and pretty; I just knew it would make the perfect base for my page. I trimmed the edges slightly and mounted it onto some white cardstock from my stash.
I also fell immediately in love with the pattern paper called ‘Expressive’; its design is beautifully bold paint strokes in the most divine colours ever! So that I could use the whole sheet, I decided to cut out some florals using a digital cut file. This one is called ‘Trio Flower Cluster‘ and I’ve cut it out twice, nice and large so that all the colours on the pattern paper would be represented. I’ve then positioned these onto my page so that they flow from the top left to the bottom right.
Don’t the colours look amazing!!! Swoon city right there!
Next, I took my photo and mat it with a spare piece of the ‘Expressive’ pattern paper using the B side which is a beautiful bright pink. I’ve stitched around the edge in my usual style and then positioned on my page using foam tape for dimension.
Next, I positioned my title. I created it from the ‘Die Cut Titles’ pack combining the words “You are so Lovely” These packs are full of title elements that can be mixed and matched to make so many different titles. I’ve added these to my page, some with flat tape, but others with foam for dimension.
Now that my background, photo and title are all locked in place, I can now add in the smaller details.
I pulled out the ‘Accessory Stickers’, ‘Die Cut Ephemera’ and ‘Flair Button’ packs and mixed and matched elements until I was happy with the page. The butterflies are all from the Ephemera pack, so too are the cute tassels. The typed sentiment ‘Happy Little Moments’ is from the sticker sheet and how cute is that flair!!
Thanks for popping by today, I just love how this page turned out! If it inspires you to create your own, please let me know by sharing it in the Cocoa Vanilla Studios Facebook group or at CUT to YOU HQ on Facebook, I really do love seeing what you make!
Until next time,
