Cocoa Vanilla Studio - Layout shares for March/April





 Hey everyone

Today I am sharing a couple of layouts I have created using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's current releases 'Flying High' and 'Sugar & Spice'.



The first page is using the Flying High Collection. As you will see from both these samples, triangular designs were on my mind :)

Layout title: So Much Fun!








The second layout I completed was using the Sugar & Spice collection. I love the colourings in this collection, so easy to use. 

Layout title: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

I think the cork paper adds a nice contrast to the other colours in the collection. 




Such happy memories documented. 

I will be back soon to share more projects :)

Jot Magazine - Forgot to share my March Mood Board



Hey everyone

I am back to share a layout I completed for the March Jot Magazine Mood Board challenge (this challenge is now closed). I realised I had not shared it here on my blog yet!

I wanted to give you a little insight into the process that I take when completing the challenges. So I have created a process video for your viewing where I share what inspired my layout, a little about my design, how I complete a page, etc. 


Here is the page I created:

Layout title: Welcome to the World.


Products Used:
Paper: white card stock, plain vellum, Pink Paislee 'Atlas' collection
Embellishments: Pink Paislee 'Atlas' tags, ephemera pack and puffy stickers, My Mind's Eye enamel dots, Studio Calico alpha stickers, vellum stickers & rub ons, Maggie Holmes rub ons, American Crafts Thickers, Jillibean Soup stickers, American Crafts peg and tag, doily, twine and ink geotag sticker
Other: Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, The Crafters Workshop Star template, Sewing machine, white thread, typewriter, tiny attacher and staples.

Here is my process video in which I completed this layout from start to finish:



The title was created with American Crafts Thickers and machine stitched to the page. I adore the Pink Paislee tag and ephemera globe!



The journaling is my sons birth details:


Lots of layers and dimension here:




I hope this post has given you a little insight into my process. I have lots more to share in the coming days :)

Jot Magazine April Mood Board - You are my Happy


Hey everyone

Today I am here to share with you the latest Jot Magazine Mood Board for April created by Jot Girl Meghann.


Here is my interpretation:


I just adored the colours in this mood board. I chose a black and white photo of my children and this allowed me to easily incorporate all colours in the mood board into my layout. I was very inspired by the floral bouquet and pops of gold, so I used lots of those elements when embellishing and creating my layers.
