Hey everyone, its Raquel here today sharing a ‘gorgeous and girly’ layout featuring the new and amazing Midnight collection. I think this theme was perfect for a layout of my little girl, I took this photo recently and knew that I had to document it.

Here is the layout that I created:

The florals in the Midnight collection are so beautiful. Just layering and clustering the florals to either side of the photo made a beautiful frame on the photo. I also used the 6×8″ paper pad to mat my photo and add a few layers.


The smaller florals in the ephemera pack were a nice finishing touch to each of the clusters. I used a variety of the florals from the chipboard pieces, die cut ephemera and accessory stickers.

The Die Cut title pack is one of my favourite embellishment pack additions to the Cocoa Vanilla products. I love the variety of titles that we are able to create for any theme and subject of a layout. I chose ‘all heart’ for this layout as I wanted to document my little girls amazing ‘feeling’ heart. The die cut title was added to the page with small foam dots to add a slight shadow and dimensional look to the title.

I also added a bit of foam adhesive behind my photo as I wanted that to be the main focus of the page.

My journaling, as always was added to the page in typewritten strip form. I chose to document a little bit about my daughter and her personality in this layout, not the actual photo and when it was taken.

To finish the layout I added machine stitching to the edges of them to add extra detail. I also added a small cluster of embellishments in the bottom right corner of the page to help balance out the top heaviness of the photo and embellishment clusters.

I hope that you were inspired by my ‘gorgeous and girly’ layout today. Thanks for stopping by the CVS blog
