Welcome back to the Cocoa Vanilla blog. It’s Kylie with you and today I am sharing another scrapbooking layout I created with the ‘No Limits’ collection. When I am looking for inspiration to create a layout, more times than often I will use a paper collection as the inspiration. There are lots of stars that feature throughout the ‘NO LIMITS’ range, both in the die cuts, stickers and on the paper prints. I wanted to have an emphasis on stars as well as having dimension and texture within the page design I created and am sharing with you all today.

Using several different papers I cut some layered stars using a simple star shape from my Silhouette software. I resized it and then used the offset feature to produce an even layering effect. There are six layers to each star all together and once they were cut out I distressed all the edges. (**This seemed a great idea at first but it did take me a longggggggg time! But the finished result was worth it.) Once all the layers were adhered together it was time to add them to their canvas! I trimmed down some of the UNIVERSAL paper to measure 9″x 9″, distressed the edges a little and adhered it centred to the Stardust paper. I also drew a fine lined border around the edges with a black marker.

My photo was trimmed down to 5″x 4″ and adhered to some of the ORBIT paper, making sure all the edges were distressed a little for extra texture. With my photo adhered in place I layered a few simple die cuts behind it and adhered the stars positioned in the top portion of my page. For balance I also adhered a star to the base line of my photo and used some of the star puffy stickers too.

To complete my page I created a large title from the title die cut pack and positioned it on my layout so that it would overlap my photo just a little. I used foam adhesive squares to adhere it so that it sat up from the background of my page a little adding a nice dimension.

Thanks so much for checking out my layout today. I hope it has given you a little inspiration for your own scrapbooking.

Take care,
