Summer Days | Sunkissed | Kylie Kingham

Hello Cocoa Vanilla fans! It’s Kylie back with you today and I’m so excited because I am sharing my first layout created with the all new ‘Sunkissed’  collection. This range has a fun ‘Summer’ vibe to it with lots of bright coloured elements.

I had some fun holiday snaps to scrapbook from a Tropical holiday we had a few years ago. I laugh at my sons face in this photo as coming from a cold climate his face says it all when you are trying to adjust to heat and humidity! The palm tree and fruit die cuts were going to be the perfect accents for this memory. I decided to work with a white background which had half a centimetre trimmed off each side and was adhered over the SUNNY DAYS paper to act as a border for my layout. Using a simple hexagon craft punch from my craft stash, I punch several shapes from various paper to be able to create a fun background.Each hexagon was adhered in place using foam squares and were positioned cascading across my background.

The theme for my layout today was ‘Sparkle and Shine’ which I was able to add to my page thanks to the gold and very glittery foam title stickers. As soon as I saw these it was love at first sight! I was able to construct a fitting title for my page and add it below my photo.

Floral elements were layered on opposite corners of my photo as well as several other icon die cuts as well. How cute are those palm trees?? I made sure to use more foam adhesive squares on some to raise them up a little to produce a nice dimension for my page.

Once completed I loved the colour in this page. The simple hexagon shapes really pop in the background against the white.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope my layout inspires you a little to scrapbook some of your favourite Summer memories.

Until next time,
