Hi Creative friends, Gwen back on the blog today with a new share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the brand new ‘DayDream‘ collection. For today’s share, I’m working with this picture of me. Yes, I’m still on a bit of a mission to scrapbook more layouts featuring photos of myself. I tend to do a lot of my daughter so it’s been fun to create a couple recently of me.
The idea for the page definitely started with the photo for this one, and with it being black and white, I thought it might be fun to pop it onto a coloured background. I’ve gone with the grey and white spot pattern in the ‘Garden Variety‘ pattern paper. I’ve used both sides of this paper for my background, adding a frame around the edge of my layout using the floral side. I’ve added stitching in a pretty pink thread for an added detail.
Next up, I’ve backed my cut file. This one is from CUT to YOU and I’ve used more of the ‘Garden Variety‘ pattern paper to do this. I’ve also used ‘Sweet Serenity‘ and ‘All Aflutter‘ pattern papers as well.
I’ve used these same papers to mat my photo, opting for a double mat for this page.
For the embellishments, I’ve fussy cut elements from the ‘Happy Place‘ pattern paper including the sweet rainbows and cute tab elements. I’ve also used some fussy cut florals from the ‘Garden Variety‘ pattern paper. I’ve teamed these with pieces from the ‘Ephemera Pack‘ as well as a ‘Puffy Hearts‘ and ‘Flair Button‘.
To finish the page, I’ve fussy cut out three moths from the ‘All Aflutter‘ pattern paper and added to my page with foam tape.
I’ve also made a process video for this layout which you can watch here:
I hope you enjoyed seeing me make this page and that it inspires you to get creating with your Cocoa Vanilla Studio goodies.
Until next time,
