Lovely you | Storyteller | Josefine van der Hoeven


Hello Paperlovers,

Welcome to the scrapbook blog of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. It’s great to see you here looking for some new scrapbook inspiration. It’s May, and this month it’s all about flowers. Have you seen the new challenge yet, the Flower Frenzy Challenge? For this challenge, we invite you to use flowers as the main design element of your layout.




I found this challenge really exciting, so I dived into it using the beautiful “Storyteller” collection. I started by fussy cutting flowers from the patterned paper. I combined these flowers with the die-cut floral ephemera. Then, I trimmed some blue patterned paper to size and placed it behind the photo of my daughter. This photo was a perfect fit for the theme. She was posing by a small restaurant in Mexico, hidden behind a stunning sea of flowers.




Placing the photo roughly in the center of the white cardstock, I began creating a gigantic cluster of flowers above it. I was pleasantly surprised by how it turned out. On either side of the photo, I added a few small flowers and leaves in a playful manner. For the title, I used the word “Lovely” in black foam, and for the word “you,” I used a green alpha from my own stash. I thought the red puffy heart was a lovely finishing touch for the title.



Finally, I added some circle puffy stickers around the flower cluster. I had so much fun with the Cocoa Vanilla Studio May challenge, and I’m really pleased with how this floral layout turned out. I hope I’ve inspired you with this layout, and I’m looking forward to seeing your beautiful flower layouts too! Wishing you a creative and wonderful day.

XoXo, Jo
