Fairy Bread using Free Spirit - Cocoa Vanilla Studio



Hey everyone,
I'm here today with a layout using the ever gorgeous Free Spirit collection. I just adore the Free Spirit collection and as I was browsing through my photos I knew it would be perfect to document this little moment.

My little girl does fairy dancing every week and we have done so since she was one year old and first walking. She just adores it and at the time of the photo we had begun a little tradition of fairy bread for lunch once we returned home. It is a nice little treat and a special tradition to begin. After all it is the little things like this that children remember.

 I focused on a vertical design, with two triangular elements on either side which draw your attention inwards. A similar design which I had used recently in a previous layout.

I decided to scatter embellishments from the top to the bottom of the page. I used a combination of ephemera, stickers, woodies and enamel shapes. Some I adhered straight to the page, and some using foam dots.

The photo are layered on some white card stock, a doily, the pink triangular print and the text paper. I added foam to the bottom of the photo layer to help it pop off the page a little.

The 'noted' tab at the top of the photos is from the ephemera pack and simply attached with a staple. I also used the orange border sticker under the photos with the 'I love you to the moon stars and back ' sentiment.

My journaling was done in my usual way of typing on my typewriter.

I continued the embellishments flowing vertically to the bottom of the page. Again using a combination of stickers, ephemera, wood veneer, woodies and enamel shapes.

I finished the page with a nice little splatter of blush colour shine. I hope this has inspired you today. Be sure to check out my You Tube channel for a process video of this layout .

Absolutely gorgeous. I only discovered Cocoa Vanilla through your process videos...and as a friend is in Australia visiting her daughter, I bought a ton of embellishments and had it delivered to her in Sydney. I adore your clustering...and I adore that intricate doilies you use on your pages...I have never seen anything as intricate as that.
