I'm so excited to share with my very first layout as a Cocoa Vanilla Studio design team member on the Cocoa Vanilla blog. Getting to work with these gorgeous collections alongside amazingly talented designers is truly an honor for me.
When I was browsing the Wild at Hearts collection, I was drawn to this patterned paper called ‘Fussy Cuts’. I absolutely love how pretty the stripes are with this watercolor effect. Somehow those stripes reminded me of nautical-style, and with blue embellishments it would be a perfect color scheme for a summer layout.
I started my layout by fussy cutting some gorgeous flowers out of the Memento patterned paper and die cutting a ship helm out of a dark blue card stock.
I placed my photo on the ship helm, and layered the fussy cut flowers around my photo. For adding my title I painted some die cut letters with watercolor and mixed and matched with the ‘hello’ chipboard shape.
I decided to balance my layout with a little cluster on the left bottom of my page. To do this I layered some pieces of ephemera, stickers and some lovely glittered enamel dots.
This was a lot of fun to create! I hope it gives you some fun ideas to try with your Cocoa Vanilla products. Happy crafting! BEA
