Hello everyone ! It’s Sophie here and I am sharing a sweet layout with you today.

For today’s layout, I used a digital Cocoa Vanilla kit ! It’s the “Life is Beautiful collection“. I fell in love with the color scheme of the collection and all the gorgeous patterned papers and embellishments ! I printed them with my very old printer on good quality paper, and it gave beautiful results !


I started with an easy mixed media background. I call it the “reverse packaging technique”…

I put a few splatters of ink on a 12 x 12 plastic package, add a little bit of water and press my thick white cardstock on it. It always gives interesting results, and it was my starting point for the design of my page.

I teared a part of the beautiful coral-pink patterned paper to put on the left side of the page and did a little bit of stitching with matching thread.


I backed my photo with tissue paper, adhesive foam and a few layers of patterned paper for dimension and interest, and fussy cut plenty of beautiful embellishments from the same collection that I scattered around my photo.



I put a banner and the fussy cut word “Happy” for my title and a few butterflies for which I only glued the center to make their wings pop.


I wrote down my journaling and added the date, as well as a few Nuvo Crystal Drops.


Here are more close-ups:





I hope you felt inspired by my page today ! Digital products are a great alternative for collections that are no longer accessible and you can get them right away on your computer ! But don’t forget that they are all for personal use only !

Thank you so much for passing by the blog today, and happy creating !

Sophie xx
