Totally Rad - A black + white + one challenge on the Cocoa Vanilla blog

Hey everyone, its Raquel here today sharing my latest layout with you for Cocoa Vanilla Studio. This is my layout for the black + white + one theme that was on the CVS blog recently. As you can see I have chosen to add the colour blue to my share. For this layout I have mainly used the new Boys Rule collection which is now available in the Cocoa Vanilla online store here. I am documenting my little man and I’s love for our special fun days out that we have together, on this particular day we had gone into town to spend his birthday money.

For the main element of the layout I chose to adapt the star die cut that is available in the large die cut and backing kit and trimmed some of the stars off so it fits within an 8.5″x11″ background. I used the Entitled paper to back three of the die cut stars, this was where I brought in the main element of blue to my page.

Here is the layout that I created:

Here are some close ups of the layout:
It was fun to delve into some of the other boys collections from CVS to embellish the layout to match with the white, black and blue colour palette.

I just adore the shadows that die cuts give to a layout when they are adhered with a foam adhesive. I chose to do the same on this page.

The layout didn’t quite feel finished as I was working so I decided to trim the white card stock down and back the whole layout on the Happy Go Lucky paper. Once I had backed the layout I also machine stitched in white cotton around the edges to add extra texture.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
