Fun Times | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Great Escape Collection

Monday 26 February 2024


Hey everyone! Here is a new layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the fabulous Great Escape Collection! This layout actually started off as a scraplift as the monthly challenge over on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Community Group is to scraplift a layout of one of the Design Team. There is an example by Josefine that has layered hearts in a grid design, so I decided to do the same thing with stars.

I set about using my Big Shot and metal nesting star dies to cut lots of different sized stars from lots of patterns from the A5 paper stack. I layered them together and stitched down the middle of each one. I made some smaller than others and each star has at least three layers.

But it turns out that arranging stars in a grid design doesn’t really work because they are very pointy! The would have to be really small to fit several across the page! So I continued to use my layered stars but the grid design was out the window!

I prepared my background using the beautiful white wash woodgrain paper which I trimmed down, distressed the edges and stuck onto a sheet of white card. I then splattered this with black paint.

I arranged my photo onto the background with four of the layered stars. They are all clustered together across the top part of the layout and this worked really well. I couldn’t cut my photo into a star shape so I’ve kept it as a rectangle and slotted it in-between two stars with some overlap.

I added ‘Fun Times’ as my title from the puffy title stickers pack and then added just a few simple embellishments to the layout: a couple of Chipboard Stickers, some little phrase stickers from the Accessory Stickers and some little star stickers: some from the Puffy Stickers set, and some from the Puffy Title Stickers pack. I finished off with some sequins and some splatters of black paint!

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping!
