Hey everyone, it’s Raquel here with you today sharing my latest layout that I have created for Cocoa Vanilla. This layout features mainly the Legendary collection with a small touch of Boys Rule. The layout is featuring my boy who is now seven and looking more and more grown up each day.

Here is the layout that I created;

As I mentioned about. This layout features our little man and a gift that hubby and I recently brought him. He has expressed a love of music and singing for a while now and more recently shared that he would like to learn guitar. We were able to find one online and boy, his year has been made. The smiles and excitement was just infectious.

I used a Triangle cut file from the Cut to You store and backed it with patterned papers in the Legendary collection. I love that I can find a cut file to for every layout topic/purpose. When documenting layouts of my son I tend to choose shape style cut files like stars!

I adhered both the cut file and my two wallet size black and white photos to the layout with a thin foam adhesive tape. This gives a subtle pop of dimension.

To embellish the page I have used mainly stars from the ephemera pack. I also added a few accessory stickers and enamel dots. Such a perfect finishing touch.

The ‘you rock’ title is created from the clear sticker sheet. I simply adhered the stickers to white card stock and then fussy cut around them. This gave me my own ephemera piece that I could use on the layout. The sentiment was perfect for these photos.

The final step before I finished the layout was machine stitching around the edge. I love the finished look this gives to a layout.

I hope this layout has inspired you today. Thanks so much for stopping by the cvs blog.
