Happy Heart using Bohemian Dreams by Cocoa Vanilla

Hey everyone, I'm here sharing a Feature Title layout that I shared over on the CVS blog recently. I am using the gorgeous Bohemian Dream collection for this layout. I tell you what! I never tire of using this amazing and beautiful collection, just so so stunning.

Here is the layout that I created:



Here is a process video of how this layout came together:


It seems to be that most of my pages contain cut files the last couple of years, so of course I chose a cut file as a way to make a feature title. The cut files I used on this page are available from fellow DT members website ‘Cut to You’ by Gwen Wruck. I loved the ‘happy heart’ design and wanted a beautiful title that matched my sweet photo of my two children holding hands. To create the feature title I chose patterned papers in the 6×6 paper pad that had a more plain print than a bold pattern. This is because I really wanted to be able to distinguish what the text was saying, I think the soft blue and purple papers were able to achieve that. I added some patterned papers in the hearts that tie in all the colours of the ephemera pieces.

Here are some close ups of my layout:









To finish this layout I adhered the whole white back ground card stock to a piece of the Kaleidoscope patterned paper. I added some machine stitching to the edge which adds a lovely textural detail. Enamel dots and some die cut butterflies finished the page off.



I hope you have been inspired to have a go at a feature title on your next scrapbooking page! See you soon...

Perfect You with Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'More than Words'

Hey everyone, I'm here with you today sharing a recent Cocoa Vanilla project. For todays layout I decided to use the beautiful More Than Words collection to document a nice photo that my daughter and I took together last month. I just love this photo and wanted to scrapbook it, but I also wanted to document what a sweet soul my little girl has. I sometimes fear that she may be a little sensitive like myself, but at the same time I love how much she cares for others around her.

Here is the layout that I created:



Here are some close ups of the layout: The Polaroid die cut was part of the ephemera pack.











I hope that you have been inspired by my layout today. Don’t forget to check out the CVS store if there was anything that I used on todays layout that you would love to get your hands on.

Here is a look at the stamp set:

I also have a process video to share with you today documenting how this layout came together including the process of stamping the beautiful Flourishing Zinnia florals:




To create this page I used the new release Build a Flower set and the Reflections Scrapbook Kit. 






These next two photos give you a good look at the details of the layout:



I love the layered look of the Build a Flower floral sets, so much detail is achieved through the application of four inks, don't you think?


On this layout I am documenting a recent girls night out I had with my bestie. They don't happen very often and are few and far between. We had such a fun night and it was a moment I wanted in my scrapbook.
