Your Nook using Love Always by Cocoa Vanilla



Hey everyone, I'm here sharing a new layout featuring the beautiful new collection Love Always. I just couldn’t resist having a play with the Colour me Happy cut files again too!

Here is the layout I created: Your Nook
nook-full
I decided to document this little corner in Charlotte’s room that I had made when she was little. I made large floor style cushions and used a large old hoop and voile curtains to create a netting canopy which was hung in the corner of her room. The idea behind it was that she would one day use it to read in. And she did just that!

I backed the floral cut files with a soft pink and a soft blue paper from the collection. These really helped pop off the page just that little bit more.

I think I need about ten packets of the vellum butterflies alone. They add such a pretty touch to a page, I also was able to add one of the puffy sticker tabs to the top left of the photo. It tucked beneath the photo mat and worked beautifully on the page.

As well as the floral cut files available from the online store there are also I heap of floral die cuts which can be found in the ephemera packs. All you need to do is punch out the extra little negative pieces from the shapes.

I also added another touch of vellum in terms of the vellum doily behind the photo.

For the journaling, it is completed on my typewriter onto plain vellum. I then sprayed the back with a vellum adhesive to adhere it to the page so you cannot see the glue lines. The ombre letter stickers were a nice way to add the title and set the scene for what this journaling was going to be all about.
