Hey y’all! Laura here and I decided for these wild and crazy photos of my oldest son, I wanted to dig deep into my Cocoa Vanilla stash and play with the You Rock collection from 2017. I’ve almost finished it off and am determined to use it up this year. For this layout, I grouped my three photos across the center and layered scraps behind them to create a foundation for my photos. The title is cut from the paper pack packaging that I cut into a banner shape, with a small washi banner behind it.

In each of the four corners, I placed a piece of washi from the washi tape booklet that accompanied You Rock and then layered random embellishments together to create L-shaped clusters. These are a combination of fussy cut stars, ephemera, chipboard, wood veneer, and stickers. Loved seeing how I could puzzle together a variety of sizes and textures into each cluster!

The bottom right corner is my absolute favorite! I had just a few pieces left from the Totally Rad collection (as in about five pieces of ephemera!), so I created a hilariously cute little globe with a mustache that I fully admit sends me into giggles every time I see it. I think it perfectly captures the goofy personality of my oldest son! Finishing off the layout with my typical Nuvo Drops, but in black this time, and gold ink splatters.

I hope this layout inspires you to dig into your older Cocoa Vanilla Studio stash for your next layout! To see how “You Rock” came together, check out the process video below!
