Hello Scrappy Friends!

This is Laura Alberts, Guest Designer and huge fan of Cocoa Vanilla Studios! I’m sharing a sweet 9×12 layout with you today of my darling daughter, fast asleep on the couch. Using the Unforgettable collection to document this adorable face was perfection! I was especially excited to incorporate the Cut to You floral cut file and these tassels that accompany the collection.

First, I used the Sprightly paper and floral cut file to cut out one of the clusters, than cut leafy fronds from the B side of the Garland paper. I backed the floral with vellum and topped it tassels, ephemera and a phrase sticker.

Next, I tucked a frame behind my photo and popped it up on foam, so I could easily tuck the journaling spot and tickets around the left side. A couple of banners on the right side added balance to the photo.

I hoped to give this layout a dreamy quality by nestling the photo into the floral cluster and allowing both to gently float on the page. The butterflies and tassels add a whimsical touch, while the pops of black add contrast. Lastly, by outlining the journaling spot with pen, it prevents it from being lost amidst the background. I hope this gives you inspiration for your own creations!
