Hello Cocoa Vanilla Studio fans. It’s time to wrap up this year with my final project for 2020. December in our family is full of reasons to celebrate as 4 of us have birthday in this month. Add Christmas to this and we basically party all the December weekends. The youngest of us, born in December, is my older daughter Gabrysia. She is teenager already and few weeks ago she turned 12. We had modest party with no guests due to Covid, but we decorated the living room as always (mama needs those cute photos to scrapbook!). I took one of her pictures to make this colorful, yet simple page.
I decided to dig in my CVS stash and pull some random, party related items, like very old wood veneers, elements from bits and pieces bags, buttons and fabric bows. I just love creating this way, with no limitation of what I can use and with whole rainbow of possibilities.
I started with printing my photo on A4 size paper (the biggest my printer can print) and cut it into a circle. Such a colorful photo doesn’t need much of embellishing so I only picked a paper for the background with soft, pink stripes. It’s from this old collection called “Love always“. I also used a piece of wooden paper from “Hello lovely” to make a frame around the photo.
I found some wood veneers from birthday themed line “Make a wish”. It was a perfect opportunity to finally use them. I also added few stickers and ephemera pieces from the same line. I almost managed to use every bit of this collection. Puffy flamingo comes with “Endless summer” collection and paper tassels are from “Unforgettable“. My title is quite simple as I only added number 12 cut out from a silver mirror cardstock. I used small star punch to make smaller, silver stars and scaterred them around the photo.
I love how simple yet eye-catching this page is. Sometimes less is more! And I am always so happy when i have a chance to use up older things from my stash. I feel I gave them second chance and nothing goes to waste.
With this party page I wanted to wish you all Happy New Year. Let’s hope for better one as this girl really craves for some travelling and teaching classed! See you in 2021 Friends.
