Hey Scrappy Friends! It’s Michelle here today sharing my first layout for 2020. I cant believe were already pretty much 2 weeks in to this new year and what better way to celebrate than to share a new layout for our ‘Holiday’ theme this month. For this layout I dipped into my Hello Sunshine collection, perfect for documenting summer memories like this one. Beach days are one of our favourite things to do during summer around the great region we live in, even more so towards the end of the season when its a little cooler and you can explore the coastline without frying/melting.

On this day we were out near a popular lighthouse along the coast where we live, but the beach was pretty quiet. Theres tonnes of rock pools in this area and it was so much fun exploring and seeing all the different creatures living amongst them. This was also during a time in Leilas life where Mario and Luigi had to come everywhere that she did. She had so much fun setting them up in little spots while she went off to explore.

There are a rare few Hello Sunshine product bundles available in the store, but once they are sold out they are gone for good. I’ve used the ‘Solar Flare’ paper as my pattern background, then layered the anchor paper and tiny triangles under the photos.

To the right of the photos I’ve added a couple of accessory stickers, ephemera, puffy sticker and woodie button to create a small cluster. (You can find the Puffy Stickers on clearance in the store for under half price here.)

And over to the left of the photos I’ve grouped together lots of different cut apart pieces from the main cut apart paper to create a title of sorts, but also to describe my thoughts of that day. ‘Fun in the sun’ , ‘The Best Summer Memories by the seaside’ , ‘So happy together’. I also added a few more ephemera pieces, puffy stickers and a woodie button to complete the group of bits.

All up this layout came together pretty quickly, some would call it a hot mess of bits and bobs, but one that I’m loving the look of. Definitely a different style of layout to my usual feminine floral designs.

Well thats all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out the DIGITAL section of the shop where you can find this range, and many other of our past collections ready and waiting for you to print, cut and create with. Don’t forget to share with us in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio group on Facebook as we all LOVE to see what you create.

Until Next time, Happy Scrapping!
