Hello paperlovers,
Welcome to the Cocoa Vanilla blog today! So great to share a new layout with you. I was inspired by the March 2021 Moodboard. I thought the little yellow clouds were a fun idea to slide them between the paper layers.I love how that turned out.


I started with a white piece of cardstock. I cut the beautiful designer paper from the “These Days” collection to size by 6×6 inches. I stitched the square with gold sewing thread in the center of the layout with my sewing machine. I picked out several pocket page cards and folded them in half. I created layers and put them on top of each other with adhesive tape.

I placed the photo on top of these design paper layers. I start by making a cluster on the left side. I use different flower die-cuts, leaves from white cardstock and wooden buttons. I cut photo frames from the design paper and sew the edges with gold thread. I slide the photo frames between all these layers.

I am decorating my layout with more beautiful embellishments from this amazing collection by Cocoa Vanilla studio. I used word strips, stickers and butterflies. I cut the clouds from white cardstock and colored them with Distress Oxide. The color I used is “spiced marmalade” I stitch the clouds with gold thread and I placed them between these paper layers.

I combined the title “These Sweet Memories” with the beautiful black elegant foam words and the small colored puffy alphas. At the top of this layout I placed a black metal clip. This way it looks just like a clipboard. I placed the white cardstock on top of a woodgrain design paper and splattered with white acrylic paint. I am surprised how this layout turned out and am happy with the result.

I hope I was able to inspire you with this layout and hope to see you next time on the blog. For now, I wish you a happy and creative day! Enjoy your creativity friends.

XoXo, Jo
