Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends!

Sophie here!

Today I am sharing a school themed layout with the gorgeous These Days collection!


I used a cut file from Paige Evans named “Open Book” and I thought this was a beautiful starting point for my page.

I used a thick white cardstock for my background, on which I added a little bit of watercolor paint starting from the open book and up, adding also lots of little splatters of paint.

I let it dry completely, and in the meantime, backed my cut file with different patterned papers from the collection.

I applied white gesso on some parts of the book to fade away the colors a little bit for a very soft look.


I mounted the open book on adhesive foam before adhering it to the page.

I used a photo of my sweet daughter on her first day of school a few weeks ago. I couldn’t be happier that she still wants to collaborate for that!

I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and placed it a little bit crooked on the right side of the open book.

I fussy cut 3 frames out of one of the A5 patterned papers, scattered them around and added a few embellishments on them.


My title is a mix of Die Cut Ephemera, Clear Sticker and letters created with a die from my stash.


Finally, I created a floral cluster with the Floral Ephemera pack, I added two butterflies and stamped the date on a label from the Accessory Stickers Pack.


Here are more close-ups.







I am so happy with the result!

I hope you can find inspiration with my page today in using this beautiful collection in a versatile way!

Thank you for stopping by, have a great crafty day !
