This Life | Bohemian Dream | Ulrike Dold

Hello everyone,

Ulli here with you today with a new layout with the amazing Cocoa Vanilla Bohemian Dream collection.

For this week we had to decide to make a project in pink or in blue. I was sure that I would do a pink one (you know me… I love pink so much!), but then I had the fantastic patterned papers from the new Bohemian Dream collection in my hands and fell in love with the amazing blue tones…

Because of that I knocked the plan to scrap in pink on the head and made this one with lots of blue.

First I cut out this heart cut file from the Silhouette store and backed it with the following Bohemian Dream papers: Abundant, Wild & Free, Dreamer, Gypsy Heart and Flower Child. I used therefor only the sides with the blue pattern. After that I stitched with my sewing machine and sewing thread in aqua over all the outlines.

Then I cut out a piece of paper from the Kaleidoscope paper in 8.5×11 inch and a white cardstock a little bit smaller. I glued the white cardstock on the wooden grain paper.

I placed the photo on the left side below and over it the big heart on the right side of the layout. I cut the overlaying part from the paper heart with my scissor.

After that I placed the beautiful blue leaves from the Bohemian Dream Vellum accents under the “Boys Rule” flair button from the You Rock collection on the top of my picture. I decorated everything with some word stickers and the “Just Can´t Get Enough” Sticker from the Wild At Heart Accessory Sticker Sheet. I also used a washi stripe with the tape ruler in black from the You Rock collection on the bottom of my photo.

I glued the woodie “Smile” from the Free Spirit collection over the bottom of the heart and the photo. It matches so perfectly to the big smile from our little boy on that cute picture.

I added the title “This Life” with the Chipboard titles on the heart above on the layout.

Then I wrote my journaling with a black fine liner on my layout.

To finish of my layout I stamped the date with a roller stamp under the photo and glued some enamel dots and enamel shapes from the Bohemian Dream collection and the You Rock collection on my layout.

I hope you like my layout and I could inspire you the one way or another.

Till the next time, Ulli


Bahaha! | You Rock | Missy Whidden

Hello, friends!  Missy here, and I have a funny (and fun) layout to share today using the You Rock collection.  I have really loved the challenge of using this “boy” collection for layouts about my silly girls.  This photo makes me laugh…look at that goofy face!  This week we are featuring projects that showcase our individual style.  I used mixed media, which is my favorite.  I was also in the mood to play with washi tape, so I took all the You Rock Washi Tape and stuck it all down on some white cardstock.  I used my circle punches to create lots of different sized circles to use around the photo.  I actually loved how the scrap paper looked after punching all the circles, so I cut it in half and used it as well.  My background paper is the Artisan paper from Wild at Heart, and I smudged a lot of white acrylic paint on it first.  I used coordinating colors of ink sprays to get the color behind everything.

I went through all the embellishments and discovered there are tons of circles!  I used one from the Chipboard Stickers, several from the Ephemera Die Cuts and even some tiny ones I punched.  I used more of the Washi Tape here with these cute phrases.  The Accessory Sticker Sheet is full of really funny phrases, so I used a few of those around the page, too.

I added some foam adhesive under a few of the circles to create some depth.  I topped this big circle with a few sentiments.  One is a die cut and one is a Rubber Charm.  I used the navy alpha stickers from Hello Sunshine.  You can also see some black machine stitching on the background.  I did some zig zag stitches as well as some messy straight stitching.  I like how it adds to the messy background.

I used a chipboard frame over my photo and then topped it with another chipboard circle.  Here you can see the scrap paper that I punched the circles from.  It looked too cool to throw away, so I used it!

Here’s one more close-up of the top area.  I did add a few bits of tangled thread in two spots for added texture and color.

I really love how this turned out!  It’s a lot of fun to make a collection work for something that it’s not intended for.  Even though most of the pieces in the You Rock line are meant for boys, I have made it work for several girl pages.  Give it a try!  Here’s my process video if you’d like to check it out:

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great week!

Happy Friday Scrappy Family!
Lina here! Hope you’ve had a wonderful week!

Today, I’m sharing a layout I created of my little one, face full of ice cream 💛 But, seriously, how could I not snap and scrap a picture. She’ll thank me when she’s older. LOL! I used the gorgeous Wild at Heart collection for my layout this week and I’m still wild about it!

Here’s what I created…

     Starting off this layout, I knew I wanted to stagger my background papers and create an offset layering effect. So I chose my papers and arranged them in the order you see. I used the Luscious paper as my base, then layered the vellum sheet, Artisan and then finally white card stock to get the look I was offer. I just love this effect!
I matted my photo with some of the papers in the collection including the navy floral vellum and popped it up with some foam sheet for dimension.

Next, I went through the chipboard frames (my fave) and choose 3 that I thought worked best with the colour scheme I was working with. I chose a floral and different sized navy blue ones. I placed the floral and the larger navy frames to the left of the photo and the smaller one to the right. Now I have a visual triangle to work with.

Now, my favourite part… embellishing! I went through the Die Cute Ephemera, Chipboard Stickers and the Accessory Stickers and chose pieces to accent my layout and photo. I kept the embellishing relatively simple this time around. Kinda…😛

From the Wood Veneer package, I chose two words, Love and You and used them for my title. But before adhering them down, I misted them with firstly some White Dylusions Ink Spray, dried it and later added some HSCS in Peacock. After drying them, the wood veneers a great over all texture and colour. They kinda remind me of a galaxy colouring. Navy with specks of white peeking through and sparkle… lots of sparkle. Just look at ’em! 💙

To finish up my embellishing, I used a Flair Button that reads Hello. Before adhering it down, I took some metallic silver thread and just created a simple nest for the flair to sit on. I love the texture it adds to the clusters.
Lastly, I took the Enamel Dots in the lighter Blue and scattered them around my page. Placing them just peeking out from other pieces and some to add direction.

I hope you enjoyed my layout share for the week as much as I adored creating it. Have a wonderful weekend!



Hot air balloon frame | Wild at heart | Anna Komenda

By | 2017-09-24T23:09:51+00:00 September 28th, 2017|Design Team, Free Spirit, Inspiration, Uncategorized, Wild at Heart|

Hello CVS fans. It’s Anna here with some fun project created with “Wild at heart” collection.

If I would have to choose my favourite craft tool it would be a Silhouette Cameo for sure. I love how versatile it is and how helpful and inspiring the cut outs can be. Project I want to share with you today is one of those inspired by the cut file. I found this fun hot air balloon box and I thought that it would look great as a frame too. I oversized it and used Cameo to cut it out.

First step was creating a base for my frame – hot air balloon. I used three papers from WAH collection to decorate it: Double dot, Grow wild, Patchwork.

After my balloon base was ready I started decorating it using all the WAH goodies.

I used a picture of me and my cute family and glues it to the balloon using cardboard pieces to add dimension. I picked few flowers from ephemera pack and placed them behind the picture. I fussy cut few butterflies from ‘Mariposa” paper and added them to my composition. I also picked some paper flowers from previous collections and spreaded them all over the balloon.

Wood veneers from “Love always” collection were a perfect match with this project.  I wanted to use this big heart for a while and I finally found a great spot to use it. I also added few flair buttons from “Wild at heart”.

I had to fill the basket of the balloon with some beach rocks because it lost the stability. This is one thing I haven’t thought of before I started adding all those layers 😀

I finished my project using rubber charms and puffy stickers from “Free spirit” collection.

I hope you like my project. It was really fun to make something else than layout. And it looks really nice on my shelf 🙂 Thank you for stopping by and see you in two weeks with some boy themed page.

XO Anna

Wedding Album | Wild At Heart | Ulrike Dold

By | 2017-09-23T06:19:08+00:00 September 26th, 2017|Design Team, Inspiration, Wild at Heart|

Hi everyone,

Ulli here with you today sharing a wedding album.

Friends of us got married in the end of August this year and so I decided to make them a mini album as a present. I made it without pictures, so that the bride can fill it with wedding photos by herself.
They have celebrated a boho wedding and I knew immediately what collection I wanted to choose: of course Wild At Heart! It was really the perfect match and I saw it in the eyes of the bride as I hand it her.
For the cover I upholstered two pieces of cardboard (15×15 cm) with the “Grow Wild” paper from the gorgeous Wild At Heart collection. I cut the patterned paper in 20×20 cm pieces and used ultra clear tape for glueing the papers on the cardboard. For the inside from the cover and the back of the album I used squares of coral cardstock in 14×14 cm.
I made the binding very simple and used four bookrings in two different colors for it. With my Cinch I punched four holes for them in the middle of the left side from my cover and in the back of the album.
I decorated the cover with a white circle of white cardstock, alpha stickers in gold and blue, the “Precious” sticker from the accessory stickers sheet, paper flowers from different Cocoa Vanilla collections and die cut pieces (flower and butterfly) from the Wild At Heart ephemera pack. I also added some of the amazing glitter enamel dots here and there.

 The single pages for this album I made with the following papers: “Luscious“, “Memento“, “Mariposa“, “Artisan” and “Double Dot“. For the simple decoration of the pages I used also the papers “Fussy Cut” and “Patchwork“. And of course the gorgeous stickers and word stickers from the accessory stickers sheet, glitter enamel dots, die cut ephemera, wood veneers and one chipboard frame. I also used some clear stamps and stamped them in black on some labels and on some of the pages.
I left enough space for the bride to fill the album with the wedding photos later. Also she can write some words about this special day on the PL card at the inside of the album.

To make the wedding album a little bit more interesting I made an eye catcher with a acetate page with big glitter polka dots in gold from my stash. I packed it between two pages from the album and decorated it in the middle of the page from both sides with die cut ephemera pieces.

As another eye catcher I made a vellum confetti page. I cut two pieces of vellum in 15×15 cm and stitched them on three sides together with my sewing machine. Then I filled this pocket with the “Happy” wood veneer word, some sequins in different colors and punched confetti pieces from paper scraps from the Wild At Heart collection.

After decorating all pages I punched them all with the Cinch as well and fit the album together.

I hope you like my mini book and get inspired to do a mini album with pretty Cocoa Vanilla scrapbooking supplies as well!
Till next time,











Forever in My Heart | Mix & Match | Missy Whidden

By | 2017-09-24T10:21:04+00:00 September 24th, 2017|Cut Files, Design Team, Inspiration, Make A Wish, Wild at Heart, You ROCK|

Happy Sunday, friends!  Missy here, and I have a new layout to share today featuring flowers and hearts.  I began with one of the beautiful exclusive floral cut files and enlarged it to run off the page in a diagonal manner.  I used a few collections here:  You Rock, Make a Wish and Wild At Heart.  I love mixing and matching!  I backed the cut file with papers from Make a Wish and Wild at Heart. I used watercolors on some scrap paper to create the green leaves.  The background paper is the In Line paper from You Rock.  I added a lot of white acrylic paint first and then used watercolors and gelatos to add lots of yellows and pinks.  I really love how this page turned out.

Backing a cut file is really easy.  The fun part is sorting through all the papers to see which parts of them you want to use.  Once I had the cut file finished, I created the background.  I went back to the Fresh Cut Paper from Make a Wish and fussy cut more flowers out to create a little cluster by the photo.  I also added in some tangled thread and some Wood Veneer hearts from Wild at Heart.

I went small with the title and used a Wild at Heart Die Cut Ephemera piece as well as an Accessory Sticker and a Make a Wish Accessory Sticker.  My journaling fit nicely right under the photo.

Over on the right side I added in a few hearts from Make a Wish.  They were the perfect addition to that area, and the colors match really well.

In addition to the packaging technique, I also sprayed directly onto the background with some spray inks.  You can see a little Wild at Heart Wood Veneer heart tucked in there.

Here are more Wild at Heart Wood Veneer.  I coated them with white gesso and let it dry.  Then I sprayed some spray inks on them and dabbed the color with a paper towel.  Finally I added in some word and phrase Accessory Stickers from Wild at Heart.

I hope this inspires you to add some flowers and/or hearts to your next layout!  They are always a winner in my book 🙂  Be sure to check out my process video here to see how I created this page.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

In my heart | Love always and You Rock | Bea Valint

By | 2017-09-20T22:33:19+00:00 September 23rd, 2017|Wild at Heart, You ROCK|

Hi, Cocoa Vanilla Fans, its Bea here with you today sharing a clean and simple layout I created using the You Rock and the Love Always collections. I documented one of my favorite photo of my little daughter and me, I love to see her beautiful smile, this picture fills me with happiness always as I look at it! I chose the pretty Plus One patterned paper from the You Rock collection as my background, and cut some Cocoa Vanilla cut file out of white cardstock.

 I wanted to leave my design simple, so I backed the die cut flowers with vellum instead of patterned paper. I arranged my photo in the middle of my page and placed the die cut flower under. Embellished both sides of the photo with stickers and ephemera pieces from the Love Always collection.

I created a cluster on the right top of the page using ephemera piece, die cut flower, some glittered enable dots, and added a little flower from my stash. Dropped white acrylic paint around my page to finish.

That’s it! I hope I could inspire you today to create a clean and simple design! Have a nice day! Bea
