Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends !

It’s Sophie on the blog today sharing a very summery layout with you !



I created this page with the lovely Sunkissed collection.

I had the idea of using one of my favorite papers of the collection, ”Just Chillin” on the wood grain side and create a frame on my layout. I cut four strips of this beautiful paper with 45 degre angles on each end to create that frame. I added adhesive foam in the middle of each strip and adhered them together in a square shape. It gives the effect that each strip is curled a little bit, mimicking a wooden frame. I added a few hand stitches with yellow embroidery thread to each corner of the frame, and centered it on the gorgeous “Good Vibrations” paper.


My photo is from a typical summer day at home where my dog Fiona likes to jump in the pool endlessly !

I used a thick white cardstock inside the frame and added numerous multicolor watercolor splatters on it.


I backed my photo with tissue paper and adhesive foam. I teared a portion of a pocket card to write down my journaling.

My title is from the Sunkissed Glitter Foam Title Stickers.


I added beautiful floral embellishements from the Floral Ephemera pack and cut out of the “Growing Wild” patterned paper.


Here are more close-ups:








I love the effect of the frame. It makes my photo stand out so well !

I hope that you felt inspired by my page today !

Thank you for passing by, and happy crafting !

Sophie xx
