Bucket full of YUM | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hello Hello, I'm back here today with a new layout share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio to finish off our current Scraplift theme. It's always fun to scrap lift a fellow DT members creation, and this time I chose one from Emma who sadly has finished her time here with us at Cocoa Vanilla Studio. Emma's creations have always inspired me, her tiny 6x8 size layouts always packed a punch! The layout I chose to lift can be found HERE.

I created my layout using the beautiful More than Words collection, focusing on multiple patterns that didn't overpower or clash  with the photo. I chose to document a sweet photo I took of Leila over the Easter weekend at an Egg hunt we attended. SO MUCH CHOCOLATE!

Heres a closer look at the layout created by Emma. I took my main inspiration from that amazing large title made from a mix of different type text cut from pattern papers using a cutting machine. I also drew inspiration from the entire design of the layout, and replicated it in a larger size layout compared to Emma's awesome 6x8 size. I wish I could make things look that good!

LOVE LOVE LOVE how pretty the colours are that Emma chose for her layout, especially the title.

I started the layout by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 8.5x11 inch size, folded and stapled the top left corner and then adhered it to a 12x12inch piece of the Sketchbook paper. Then rather than using a square photo size, I printed a rectangular shape and raised it off the layout with a piece of foam sheet. I tucked an ephemera tab under the right side and added a couple of enamel shapes.

Next I adhered the title using foam tape, I had chosen the papers and pre cut the designs using silhouette studio prior to starting the actual layout to ensure everything fit right down the middle. I used the Radiant, Treasure and Effervescent papers from the 6x6 paper pad for this as the smaller printed patterns worked best for the small cut letters.

In the top left where the paper is folded over, I've created a cluster of pretty bits. I tucked in a few different paper and vellum flowers from the ephemera packs, a chipboard heart and some enamel shapes

Lastly I replicated a similar cluster on the bottom right using the same type of items as the first, then splattered the layout with some gold ink until I felt it was complete. I haven't added any journalling to the layout as I felt the title was enough. But I may add a few lines to the back of the layout for future years to come.

Well thats all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope this has been an inspiring read!

Until Next time, Happy Scrapping.
