Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends ! It’s Sophie here today and I am sharing a bright and colourful layout with you !


I created my page with the GORGEOUS Happiness Collection. I only have a few scraps of it left, but you will see with this page that even a little can go a long way !!



I chose a photo of my little Sabrina playing in the park where we had a picnic a few weeks ago. It was a radiant sunny day, and I wanted to highlight this moment with the bright colors of the Happiness collection.


I started with a thick white cardstock as my background. I added some powder inks diluted in water to create a big blue and aqua area on my layout where I planned to put my photo and embellishments. I used the packaging technique and added numerous splatters of ink on the cardstock.


I let it dry completely. In the mean time, I cut a beautiful flower cut file from Just Nick Studio on a white cardstock and backed it with different papers of the Happiness collection, mainly the Botanical Bliss paper, the Frame of Mind paper, the Expressive paper and the Good Vibes paper. I put adhesive foam behind the cut file before adhering it to pe page.



I also backed my photo with tissue paper (as I always do..!) and adhesive foam, and two layers of patterned papers (Good Vibes and Expressive papers).



I added a few leaves on my flower cut file, a little black wreath and two beautiful butterflies on the left side of my photo. They all come from the Happiness Die Cut Ephemera pack.



My title is a word from the Die Cut Titles pack. “Unique” couldn’t be a better word to describe my sweet girl who is always full of joy…!


I also created a little cluster on the top right of the layout where I added ephemeras and a few stickers from the Happiness Clear Sticker sheets for a pop of color and more dimension. It creates a diagonal design that guides the eye through the page.



I finally wrote dawn my journaling and added the date.


I am so happy of the end-result ! It screams summer to me and it is much needed, as fall is slowly coming and the days get colder and darker quite fast, at least here in Canada !


Here are more close-ups.






truly hope you like this page and that it inspires you to use this wonderful CVS collection !

Until next time,


Sophie xx
