Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends !


Sophie with you on the blog today sharing this new layout created with the beautiful “These Days” collection.



My focus today was to use the A5 Paper Stack. Ohh this was fun !!!


Here is a look at my process;


This frame paper is really what got me started. I fussy cut plenty of those cute little frames and I knew that I wanted to incorporate them on my page.



I selected 3 other A5 patterned papers and printed my photo in black and white. It’s actually a selfie that Sabrina took while trying to cuddle our dog !



I teared the 3 patterned papers and planned to align them on the bottom of my layout.



I also played with some Lindy’s Stamp Gang magical powders to create a soft mixed media background on a thick white cardstock as shown here:




Then, I tied everything together. I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind my photo. I layered the 3 pieces of patterned papers, stitched them down and curled them a little bit for more dimension.


I mounted most of the frames on adhesive foam and placed them in a horizontal design around my photo.



I decorated each of them with different elements from the collection; Accessory Stickers, Die Cut Ephemeras, Floral Ephemeras, Wood Epoxy buttons and Puffy Stickers. My title is from the Clear Stickers that I first sticked to white paper and fussy cut.



Here are more close-ups:










I am so happy with the result ! I really can’t stop creating with this gorgeous collection !


I hope you felt inspired today, thank you for stopping by and have a great crafty day !
