Hey everyone, Raquel here today with a little bit of a reminiscing post for you all and some exciting news. Today my little girl turns 4! I can hardly believe that four years have passed since she was born! Boy, time has flown. I thought it was only fitting to share a couple of pages featuring and celebrating her and todays post also mentions something new to have hit the CVS store last month.

Did you see the exciting news that limited edition Page Kits and flair have just hit the Cocoa Vanilla Store? Both the flair and the classes were created exclusively for the Brisbane Scrapbook expo however due to the popularity of the classes and products, they have been made available in the Cocoa Vanilla Store just for you to purchase. How cool is that!?!

Two of the available Page Kits are double page classes designed by me using two of the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla collections.

Here is the Page Kit I wanted to share with you today, which features the Free Spirit collection. In the Page kits you get everything you need to create the two pages and let me tell you these kits are jam packed. You will definitely have plenty of product left over to create a few pages all of your own later!





Here is a little glimpse at one of the pages that is in the kit. The Free Spirit collection sure does compliment this sequence of photos of my princess well. The ephemera that I was able to layer and cluster gave me the chance to make this layout sweet and playful.


You not only get papers from the collection but also wood buttons, ephemera and enamel dots! The perfect trio of embellishments I say.


Its no secret that I love to add layers and dimension to my pages. The full printed instructions that you receive will explain in plenty of detail how to achieve this.


The second page is a single photo layout which has a bit of a diagonal design. For this page you will learn to use a common tool you probably have at home to create a feature on the page. You will also be provided with the most beautiful and intricate cut files, which yep! have already been cut out for you!


The bonus of this class as I mentioned, is that you get the pre-cut cut file all ready for you to use. This means that you could try before you buy in terms of the cut files available in store, or even try using the cut files before you may purchase your own electronic die cutting machine. Maybe you have been on the fence and wonder what cut files are like to work with?


Here’s another close up look into the second page in the Page kit. Again, it will come with a full set of detailed instructions. Pretty cool hey!


I was so excited to share a little bit more info about the kits designed by me available in the store. They are limited in number, so if you may be after one I would check them out!

But for now my cherubs and I are off to eat cake and celebrate! Have a lovely day everyone
