Welcome back to the blog Cocoa Vanilla fans!

Today I am sharing my second page using the new ‘Storyteller’ collection and these colours are my jam! I find them so easy to use and the whole collection can be used to cover so many different subjects…the choices are endless!

For my page today I started with wanting to make a statement background that featured many of the patterned papers, so out came the A5 paper stack. I chose a few different patterns and decided that I really wanted to bring in more of the red so I pulled a piece of red cardstock from my stash to add into the mix and went crazy cutting out 1 inch squares.

I decided to make a big star with the squares so I used a piece of cardstock to cut a star then stuck down all of the squares onto the star, trimming off all of the excess paper. I then decided to add some more texture to my page by adding some hand stitching to some of the squares…love me some texture!

Next I wanted to add some paper layers behind my photo so I HAD to use the woodgrain paper that matches so well with the hat my little boy is wearing in the photo….and I also added a paper doily to give some separation between my star and my photo.

Now that the base of my page was done, it was time to get some embellishments down, and of course I needed some of the gorgeous florals, so I used a mix of the florals from the floral ephemera pack and some that I had cut out from the ‘Spring Fling’ paper. I positioned them to the top left and bottom right of my page to draw the eye down through my photo.

Next, to complete these clusters, I added some of the butterflies from the ephemera pack and some of the gorgeous ‘wooden buttons’ ….LOVE!

Now, I just need to add my title so the words ‘So Sweet’ from the foam title stickers were just too perfect not to use… so I placed it below my picture and my page was complete!

I hope I bought you some inspiration today, and you are having as much fun with Storyteller as I am.

I will be back next month to share more with you.

Happy Scrapping!
