Mr Lava Lava | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Great Escape Collection

Monday 12 February 2024


Hey everyone, here is my first layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the new Great Escape Collection! I had a little story to tell about my little boy, and the paper with the mountain skyline was just perfect so I went straight for that!

I trimmed the paper down and placed it on a white background. I framed it with two dark blue strips that I cut from the A5 Paper Stack, this was to give that middle piece some definition against the white background.

I added my photo together with some mountain ephemera from the Die Cut Ephemera pack and a cute little journaling card from the A5 Paper Stack. I added some Chipboard Stickers and some more ephemera: a star and a compass.

On the other side, I made another large cluster using a small piece of paper, several Accessory Stickers, some Chipboard Stickers and more pieces from the Die Cut Ephemera. I stapled some ribbon onto the tag sticker and this was initially where I thought I could write my journaling. I actually ended up adding small embellishments and the date and writing my journaling below the title instead.

I added ‘let’s explore’ title from the Puffy Titles pack – how awesome are these! And I handwrote my journaling below this. I wanted to add my own title to this layout which went with my story, so I reached for the Mini Puffy Alphabet stickers from the Heart & Home collection. The colours match really well and I was able add my ‘Mr Lava Lava’ title!

My mountain skyline was looking a little flat, so after I’d stuck everything down, I decided to attempt to give them some dimension! I managed to lift up the paper, slide my cutting mat underneath and carefully cut along the mountains. I then added foam pads – I love how this turned out!

Finally I added some splatters of black paint and some sequins!

I loved using the Great Escape collection and have made loads more layouts with it since so keep checking back for those!
Happy scrapping
