Unique Moments | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Happy Days

Tuesday 23 January 2024

Here is a new layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using Happy Days! I focused on the colourful striped paper from the A5 Paper Stack and wanted to make a feature out of it on four sides of my layout.

I started off with wide strips of the stripes, and then I cut them into ‘steps’. The offcuts made for interesting step shapes too! I arranged these onto my layout but they didn’t quite look right on the far edges. So I drew a frame using a black pen, leaving a wide boarder, then I arranged the ‘step’ shapes around this frame. That worked really well.

I mounted my photo onto a rainbow sheet from the A5 Paper Stack so that it had a really colourful boarder to match the rest of the layout and slotted the photo into the step shapes on the left side of the layout.

I then began adding small areas of embellishments. I used Floral Ephemera in various places, some of the Die Cut Ephemera too. I also fussy cut some words from the Definitive Paper and added one to each of the four main ‘steps’. I also extended each of the words by adding a second word from the Mini Alphabet Stickers. So ‘Unique’ became ‘unique moments’, and ‘perfect’ became ‘perfect day’ etc.

I finished off with sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps, my handwritten journaling, and splatters of black paint which was a great contrast to all the bright colours in the layout! I love how this one turned out and it was super fun to make!

Happy scrapping
