Hello Cocoa Vanilla fans! It’s Kylie with you again with another layout I created to share with you all. This pandemic has been difficult for everyone and especially for families who have been unable to travel to see each other. My layout today documents a happy reunion and I knew the ‘No Limits’ collection would be perfect to use. I wanted lots of colour on my page, so I used a backed ‘Colour-wheel’ cut file from CUT TO YOU as a focal point. This allowed me to use a wide variety of papers.

I’m not going to lie. The orange side of the SPARKS paper is probably my most favourite. I seemed to of used it in every layout I have created so far! It’s just the most perfect shade! To begin this layout I trimmed it to 11.5″x 11.5″ and adhered it centred over the top of the BIG BANG paper. It was then sat aside whilst I cut out my cut file. Originally the cut file design was a full circle. I decided to cut away a pie section to allow for a small ‘nook’ if you like, to position my photos in. I did this very carefully with my scissors, before using the A5 paper pack to back the remaining piece.

With the cut file backed, I then added some adhesive foam squares to the back of it and adhered it centred on my page. I’ve used two different photos that I printed to 3″x 4″ in size. Each were backed with a pocket card for a burst of extra colour. These were adhered into place and I added a cluster of the die cuts to support the photos and to provide a nice overall balance.

It was at this point I felt the background needed something extra so I decided to add a small scattering of stars from the die cut pack, chipboard stickers and puffy stickers. To complete my page I chose a title phrase using the title die cuts, which was adhered in place above my photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today,

Until next time,
