Hey Everyone Its Michelle back here today with a new layout to share with you all. I’ve scrapped a funny moment with Leila using the new These Days collection, ensuring the silly photos also get documented in our albums. It cant always be about the sunshine and rainbows… or can it?

I started by adhering a strip along the bottom of some white cardstock. This rainbow printed strip can be found on the bottom of the ‘Good Life‘ cut apart paper. Next I printed a set of photos in black and white slightly smaller than 3x4inch size and adhered both to different complimenting pattern papers (one of which is a pocket page card). I also cut a 3rd piece from another patter the same size to create a base for my large cluster, plus a trip of another complimentary pattern to tuck underneath. All 3 ‘cards’ were adhered to the cardstock using foam for a little dimension off the page. I tried flat scrapping this layout, and it just isn’t me. Give me ALL the dimension without bulking up the albums too much.

The photos I’ve used aren’t spectacular, but they’re certainly something funny to document. I think Leila and I sat this way for over an hour, her watching something on the iPad and me the tv. Yep we’re oh so weird in this household!

Next up I worked on the main cluster using some of the beautiful florals from the ‘Home Grown‘ paper that I had pre-cut on the couch a few nights prior. I wrapped them around the cute little ephemera piece that I thought worked perfectly for a mum & child layout. I used a couple of different forms of adhesive for this cluster to give the florals layered dimension.

The title was one that came together really quickly using our fancy new foam title pack plus a cut apart piece and word sticker from the accessory sheet.

Under the title I added another floral cluster, similar to the first one I created. Again using different forms of adhesive for layered dimension.

Heres another peek at the top cluster where I’ve used word strips from the a5 size cut apart sheet, and a cute gold glitter heart.

Lastly a 3rd mini cluster of florals was made at the top corner to balance out the entire layout but creating a visual triangle. Sometimes I don’t stick to this rule as it depends on the orientation of the layout, but most of the time I feel that it really gives a layout a more finished cohesive look. Oh and I also added a splattering of gold ink, cant forget that finishing touch either!

Well folks, thats all from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by to see my newest creation using our BRAND NEW collection – These Days. I cant wait to see what you all create with it once it reaches your crafting spaces! Please share with us in our Facebook Community group and via Instagram too using the hashtag #cocoavanillastudio

Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
