Hey Creatives! I hope you are all well. I’m up on the blog today sharing for Cocoa Vanilla Studio and for this week we are having fun and being inspired by a Stars and Stripes theme. I’ve decided to work with stars and was inspired to scrapbook this photo of Miss C from a few years back. I was also inspired by this months challenge mood board which I will also share below.

Here is the challenge board that helped inspire the page:

My page started by pulling out the ‘Legendary‘ collection. I really wanted to use it as I knew it had the blue tones, touches of green and that warm copper type colour all in the mood board and all that would match my photo. I also knew it would work really well with the star theme we have happening and included the die-cut star pieces in the ‘Ephemera Pack‘.

Next up, I grabbed this star cut file called ‘Stars N Stripes’ by CUT to YOU and backed each of the stars alternating the ‘Wild One‘, ‘Outdoors Type‘ and ‘Off Beat’ pattern papers. I’ve also used the dark woodgrain in the ‘Outdoors Type’ pattern paper as my border, adding stitching around the edge for extra detail.

To mat my photo, I’ve used the ‘All Star‘ pattern paper and more of the ‘Off Beat‘ pattern paper for my layers.

I’ve then positioned my cut file onto some foam adhesive and placed onto more of the ‘Off Beat’ pattern paper, this time using the A-side. I just love the look of this mixed media background without any of that messy mixed media work.

With my large cut file and background sorted, it was then time to position the photo and larger title pieces. I am on a kick right now to use all of these titles up and have added another three to this page. I don’ have too many now!! I had to fuss with the position a bit to get them to a place where I felt like they worked. I just kept changing things up until I was happy.

I’ve also added in at this point the two large die-cut stars into my layers and love how they look. It was time to get to the embellishments, I’ve gone with the Flair buttons, some stickers from the ‘Accessory Sticker‘ sheet and a few ‘Enamel Dots‘ to finish off the page.

Thanks for popping by the blog today, I hope my page has inspired you and you are enjoying the ‘Stars and Stripes’ theme this week. I also wanted to mention that I have made a YouTube video of my process for this page which you can watch below.
