Beautiful | Lottie Loves Paper | Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream

Saturday 12 September 2020


Hey everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Lottie Loves Paper. This month I am working with the super beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream collection which is available from Lottie Loves Paper.

For this layout I really wanted to use that lovely blue paper with the white flowers. The other side has a beautiful floral wreath on it which I know will be popular but the blue side just spoke to me! I wanted to showcase it for my background but was a little busy for me to use as it was. So I settled on a starburst design. I did this manually, with a pencil and a ruler and then I cut it with scissors. I distressed the edges and pieced it all back together again (making my gaps a bit wider in the process) and then sewed around each triangle with white cotton on my sewing machine. In real life the stitching is subtle but pretty but it probably can’t be seen too well on the images or the video.

I then began layering up my photo but felt it needed some more white space. So I doodled some clouds onto a scrap piece of white card and cut them out. I then stuck those onto a blue paper (Cocoa Vanilla too) and cut around them. I then stitched around the edge so I had a double border – a turquoise blue stitched outline and a navy blue paper outline too. They look fab and gave me the extra areas of white space the layout needed.

I pulled out all the blue ephemera from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Daydream ephemera, as well as some of the blue stickers. I used a green padded heart and picked out the blue sequins from the Daydream sequin mix. My title is ‘Beautiful’ and is from the Daydream die cut titles pack.

I finished with some splatters of white acrylic paint and handwrote my journaling. I hope you enjoyed this layout, I absolutely loved making it and am delighted with how it turned out. Enjoy the video below x

Happy scrapping
