Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends!

Sophie here with a new layout to share!


I used the No Limits collection. I decided to do a little bit of mixed media on the gorgeous “Stardust” paper that I used for my background.

I cut a cut file from Just Nick Studio and used it as a stencil to apply white acrylic paint on the center of the page. I also added white splatters.

I mounted a beautiful black and white photo of my son studying with our dog on tissue paper, foam adhesive and a few layers of patterned papers chosen from the A5 Paper Stack.


I used another Just Nick Studio cut file for my title. I used the yellow A5 paper to create the inner parts of the letters, machine stitched on them and popped them up with foam dots instead of backing the cut file with them.  It creates a more dynamic title and I love the result!


I embellished around the photo with elements from the Die Cut Ephemera pack, the Puffy Stickers, the Chipboard Stickers and two Wood Buttons.

I handwrote my journaling on a die cut and placed it next to the photo.


Here are more close-ups:









I love this masculine page, and hope you do too!

Thank you for stopping by, and happy crafting!
