Amazing Kid - an 8.5x11" layout featuring You Rock by Cocoa Vanilla

Hey everyone, I'm here with you today sharing a new layout featuring the amazing You Rock collection. I feel like a broken record when I say how much I love creating with this collection for the everyday little moments and time of my little man, but it so so so true. I have created a lot of pages so far and can see a lot more ahead!

Here is the page I created:

Here is the process video for how this one came together:

I have been dabbling in 8.5×11″ size since taking a little break from crafting and I must say that for now I am loving the size. I feel like it has reignited that scrapping mojo which is pleasing for me too. For this layout I am documenting a cute lil picture of my boy when I happened to catch him trying on my glasses.

I decided to add a grounding piece of patterned paper down the left side of the page using the Plus One paper and a small thin strip of the Inline paper. I love the pop of yellow that the In Line paper brings. I then worked my embellishing on a diagonal from the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Included in the embellishing is wood veneer, chipboard pieces and one of the rubber charms. I am on my second packet of the charms. I just love adding them to my pages.

The bottom right embellishment cluster has much of the same of the top left. However I also added a fussy cut star from the Starshine paper and some of the tiny word stickers from the sticker accessory sheet.

The title is made up of a Paper Issue ‘glasses’ cut file backed with white plain vellum, the wood veneer ‘hello’ and a tiny word sticker from the accessory sheet. I put a thin foam tape behind both the cut file and wood veneer to create a slight shadow and add a touch of dimension.

This layout also features some hidden journaling. I created my own tag using the Night Sky paper to add some typewritten journaling to. The design of the page didn’t leave me a whole lot of room to add a story, so a good alternative to just leaving it off is to create a tag and tuck it behind a layer or in this case the photo. Because the patterned paper had a notepad style design I just typed the journaling straight onto it rather than cutting it into strip form like I normally do.

To add another pop of colour to the page I added the This Way paper behind my photo. You may notice I always print my photos with a white border. So this allows me to add a printed design paper behind my photo without it being to overpowering.

Thanks for stopping by!
