Hello Friends. We all love Cocoa Vanilla for their masculine collections, right? Zoe is a master of designing them and she never disappoints with each new line. They are very versatile and can be used not only for boys or men photos and I am a proof of that. I am a mom of two girls and a beagle boy and I use those lines to scrapbook my puppy photos mostly. But, from time to time, I put my girls on the display too. They are way less cute than a puppy but I need to be fair with dividing my scrappy attention 🙂 I framed their photo using new “No limits” collection and it turned out great.

I was inspired by the pack of title die cuts that comes with this collection and wanted to use as many as possible on one page.  That’s why I printed by photo big and square to be frames by the words. I also changed it’s colors to black and white and it will better fit the vibe of “No limits”.

My layout base is made out of “Spark” paper. It has very light and calm pattern in the middle and fun, mixed media like frame on the edges. I also fussy cut some stars from “Nebula” paper. I love patterns like this – with elements big enough to be cut. It helps to stretch your collection way further than a pack of ephemera pieces.

With a photo glued flat in the middle of the page, I started arranging the words around it. It was tricky to find right combinations – they needed to fit on the side of the square and make some sense as a phrase. Each word is glued down with a layer of foam tape for more dimension. I also added some fussy cut starts in the composition.

If you have some empty spaces left – don’t worry. You can fill them with stickers, ephemera pieces or other elements. I reached for cardboard stickers mostly, as they add great texture to every project. You can also spot few wooden buttons (my big love!). Big words look great accompanied by small phrases in different font so I added few word strips from stickers sheet. I finished my project by adding few super cute puffy stars here and there as a stronger color accents.

That is all for today. I hope I inspired you to use those die cut titles. You can arrange longer title with them, use single words and I even fussy cut single letters to make totally new words with them! Sky is the limit here.

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you in June! Let’s hope I will have some project made with brand new line to share with you.

XO Anna
