Lovely Memories | Josefine vd Hoeven | These days collection

Hello Paperlovers, It’s Josefine here back with you today I made a new 12×12 layout with the gorgeous collection “These Days” by Coco Vanilla.This collection is great for documenting fall related photos but also offers the opportunity to capture everyday life such as summer, family, parties or romantic getaways. I love these beautiful pastel shades and give my layouts a warm feeling.

For this layout, I wanted to capture a photo of me and my husband. We were invited to the king’s ball. The beautiful collection ” These Days” fits perfectly with the beautiful romantic pastel shades. First, I used black thread to sew a circle on the white cardstock background.Then I used a circle confetti punch from “EK Success” to punch out several circles from the pretty pink dots design paper and taped them into the circle. I used 3d tape for this.

I trim three strips of designer paper to size and stitch them through the middle with black thread. Then I placed these strips right through the circle. I mounted the picture with different design papers and placed it in the center of the layout. I cut some flowers from the design paper and choose different flower die-cuts for decoration of the layout. On the left side of the picture I make a big cluster of flowers, butterflies, wooden buttons and die-cuts.

I used 3d tape to create more dimension in my clusters.I really like the different layers. For the title I used the elegant word ” Lovely” and for the word “memories” I used an alpha set from my own stash.When I’m done decorating I make watercolor splashes on my layout for just a little extra color. The pastel colors of Prima marketing match perfectly with the beautiful collection ” These Days”.

I can’t wait to see what you create with this fabulous collection from Cocoa Vanilla. I hope I was able to inspire you with this layout and thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a very happy and creative day!  XoXo, Jo
