Hi Creative Friends,

I’m back on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog today with a new share featuring the ‘Sunkissed‘ collection.  Today I’m documenting a recent family outdoor adventure on a weekend away and what better collection to do that with than this one!  I just love its outdoor feel and the bright happy colours, it’s perfect for all kinds of adventures.

To begin my page I’ve created the background using the ‘Just Chillin‘ pattern paper.  For this page, I’ve used the A and B side of this design, so be sure to grab a couple for your stash.  The B-side is the woodgrain and the A-side features sweet puffy clouds.  I was so drawn to use the clouds as my background of my layout, they are the cutest! and I just wanted something really fun, bright and happy for this page.

Next up, I’ve backed a cut file title design, this one from CUT to YOU called ‘TN Go See Do‘.  

For this, I’ve used the ‘A5 Paper Stack‘ and chosen one of the exclusive patterns which you can see above, it’s that striking blue pattern.  This design is only available in the A5 paper stack.  I’ve teamed it with a similar pattern in the pink but this time I’ve used the ‘Growing Wild‘ 12 x 12 pattern paper.  You can see above the difference in the size of the print.  I find it fun to mix and match papers in the A5 paper stack format with the regular 12 x 12 sheets.

I’ve also backed my photos using the A5 Paper Stack and added my signature stitching for extra detail.  I’ve then positioned my photos and bold title centred on the page.  The photos are flat on the background, but I have raised up the title here with some foam tape.

Now it’s time to embellish!  For this, I’ve started with the ‘Die Cut Floral Ephemera‘ and ‘Die Cut Ephemera‘ packs.  Both include super fun elements to add to my page.  I’ve just mixed and matched and auditioned everything until I was happy with the placement.  I decided on a couple of small clusters for this page, it didn’t need too much extra given I’ve used two photos and the large title piece.

Next, I’ve included some elements from the ‘Puffy Stickers‘ pack as well as a couple of ‘Wood Epoxy Buttons‘.  Both of these are fab ways to add texture and interest to your page, I love the sweet elements in these packs.

Lastly, I’ve added some of the typed sentiments from the ‘Accessory Sticker Sheet‘ in the collection.  I like to add these with foam tape for a little more dimension.  They are a great way to help support your photos and help tell your story.

Thanks so much for popping by today, I hope my page has inspired you in some way.  I also have a YouTube process video showing you how I’ve created this page which you can watch here:

Until next time,
