Best ever - a layout using Cocoa Vanilla's Make a Wish

Hey everyone,

I'm here today sharing a new layout using the stunning new Make a Wish collection. My challenge to myself for this layout was to create a page of my little man using it. From the outside this collection may seem really girly because of the colour of pink featured throughout. However, I was easily able to select a masculine toned colour palette and embellishments to compliment my page.

Here is the layout I created:
wish-full
The photo I have chosen to document for this layout is one of my son at his first birthday cake smash that I did with him. I managed to capture a moment when he was shoving a piece of cake right into his mouth. I took numerous photos on this occasion and have documented some of them already, but this is one I had on my ‘to scrapbook’ pile.
wish-desk
I decided to add the wood veneer embellishments to this page to compliment the veneer look paper. I added detail to the left of the photo with a small strip of binding edge punched paper. The whole photo mat was adhered to the page with foam adhesive.
wish-2
The title was made up of an ephemera word strip ‘best ever’ and the wood veneer word ‘wish’. The photo contained white space which gave me the opportunity to overlap my title on top.
wish-1
I just adore the tiny word stickers that can be found at the bottom of the accessory sticker sheet, don’t you? The ‘eat cake’ sentiment was perfect and in a blue tone font too! I also added the wood veneer stars from the veneer pack as they were the same type of design of star and worked with the layout beautifully.
wish-3
I used a star cut file as the main design feature of my page, it was a cut file from my ever expanding cut file library. I used three of the patterned papers in the collection to back the stars. Some I chose to leave plain. When backing the cut files I tried to get an even distribution of the patterns. The cut file was adhered to the page with a foam adhesive.
wish-4
I wanted to create a cluster at the bottom of the page, which would be somewhere that I could add the date of the image. I added a combination of the card stock ephemera and the vellum ephemera, as well as a touch of that binding edge punched patterned paper too. The Glitter enamel dots made a nice finishing touch to this cluster.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
