Hey Creative Friends,
I’m back today with a new share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I’m stash busting again for this one and using the ‘Happiness‘ collection. I’m scrapbooking these two sweet photos of my husband and daughter taken a few years back, they were taken as part of a mini photo-shoot we had for my birthday and I just adore this very sweet little moment between the two of them.
To begin my page, I’ve used the ‘Expressive‘ pattern paper to create a frame for the edge of my layout, I’ve added plain pink cardstock to the center from my stash. I’ve then cut out two of the ‘Floral Note Card‘ cut file designs by CUT to YOU. I’ve used sections of the ‘Expressive‘ pattern paper to back just floral parts of the design, keeping the notecard part open.
I’ve then layered these two elements down the centre of my page. I wanted to create the look of two frames with the design, rather than the look of the note paper.
For my photos, I’ve backed them with the ‘Frame of mind’ pattern paper, making sure to pull from the blue area on that paper. I’ve added stitching around the edge of my photo and raised it up on foam for dimension. I’ve also pulled a paper doily from my stash and added that behind as a soft layer. You can also see here that I’ve taken a piece of the ‘So Fresh‘ pattern paper and created a banner piece to layer behind my photo as well.
Next, it was time for some fussy cutting. I’ve cut several of the navy butterflies from the ‘Bright and Beautiful‘ pattern paper to position around my page. I’m using the navy butterflies here because I want to use a title from the ‘Die Cut Titles’ pack. These titles are all in a deep navy tone so the butterflies help to balance out the colour in the title around the page.
I’ve also included elements from the ‘Die Cut Ephemera’ pack and a ‘Flair Button’, as well as a couple of the typed sentiments from the ‘Accessory Sticker Sheet’. The final touches for the page include a sweet bow cut from the ‘Expressive‘ pattern paper using a die from my stash and some sequins also from my stash of supplies.
Thanks for popping by today, I hope you enjoyed my share and it inspires you to use up your stash of the ‘Happiness’ collection. You can still shop some elements from this one in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio shop here.
I’ve also created a YouTube video of my process for this one, you can watch it here:
Until next time,
