HEY Cool Kid | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hello Hello, I'm back today with a new layout to share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the SUPER cool Boys Rule collection. For the last few days part of the team have been sharing layouts featuring geometric shapes, and boy have they been awesome to see! 

I had no idea where to begin with this layout as theres so many geometric shapes to choose from, most of which I've used in some form within the last few layouts I've created. I turned to google images for some inspiration and came upon an art sketch that involved large triangles and arrows in a central design.

I started by cutting 2 large triangle shapes from the green pattern of STRAIGHT & NARROW paper, 2 smaller triangle shapes from the shite with black cross STAR FALL paper and then 2 arrows from the blue pattern ENTITLED paper. Really loving the B sides of this paper collection as they're all quite vibrant and perfect for mixing together. I've sewed through all shapes then roughed up the edges for a little texture and dimension.

I framed both the crazy face photos taken back in April using Snapchat, we LOVE a funny selfie! The wood look frame can be found in the EPHEMERA pack and the blue and white diagonal stripe frame is in the chipboard pack. I've added a clear sticker to the bottom corner of the blue frame along with the LOL accessory sticker, a crown from the chipboard pack to the top of the funny long face photo and the wild child sticker from the accessory sticker sheet.

I've created a mixed product title again, LOVE the look of them plus it stretches the word stickers and ephemera further by mixing things up instead of using it all at once on one page. Starting with the black HEY bubble which I cut up to remove the extra text that didn't work with the title. Next I added foam to the back of the COOL KID words from the EPHEMERA pack, fussy cut the YOU ARE from the ENTITLED paper and raised it up with more foam tape. I used the AWESOME from the Ephemera pack (also raised with foam tape) and then added the TOTALLY from the CLEAR STICKERS sheet to finish it off.

Lastly a sprinkling of embellishments and black ink splatters around the layout, but not too many to over do it as the background it already quite busy. I've repeated the same if not similar items within a visual triangle to pull it all together. Items used are CHIPBOARD stars, CLEAR stickers and enamel shapes from previous collections.

Well thats all from me today, I hope you've enjoyed taking a closer look at my creation.
Until next time, Happy Scrapping

Reading SuperSTAR | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hello Everyone! I'm back here today with a new layout share for Cocoa Vanilla Studio inspired by our recent stars and stripes theme. I've used an older collection 'You Rock' thats full of stars a few stripes and loads of other complimenting patterns. The layout documents Leila's love of reading, she especially loves all things Dr. Suess.

The process of creating this layout came together pretty quickly, once all those stars were cut out! I created a grid style layout using stars from the STARSHINE paper and some roughly cut squares from the b side of both RANDOM and STARSHINE papers. I sewed through all the rows of stars and around the outside of the squares of paper before adhering all the extra bits.

In the top right I've tucked in a sticker under the paper square, mounted the photo on a slight diagonal with foam tape then embellished the top corner using chipboard stars and another sticker from the Accessory sticker sheet.

I added a few wood veneer shapes over the top and at the ends of the stitched star rows creating some extra dimension to the layout

Over the bottom left sure of pattern paper Ive added the title using alpha stickers from older collections, more chipboard pieces, ephemera pieces and stickers from the accessory sheet. Lastly a few enamel shapes and a splattering of black ink around the page and this fun layout was complete. Super quick to create once all those stars were cut out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time, happy scrappingMichelle x
