Hi everyone!

You will have seen that there was a DT call posted the other day. How exciting is that?? I’ve been lucky enough to spend TWO years on this team, I’ve worked with THIRTEEN amazing collections, and had an outstanding time whilst doing it! Zoe is truly one of the most talented people I’ve ever worked with. It’s been so rewarding seeing her company grow and to be part of it has been such a privilege! After two years though, it’s someone else’s turn. I can’t wait to see who get’s to play with her new collections, who will no doubt be fantabulous, just like all her previous ones!

As a THANK YOU and as a sign off, today I’m sharing my favourite LO from each and every one of Zoe’s/Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s collections.

Let’s start from the very beginning – my favourite LO with “Flying High“. It also happens to be my first ever LO with CVS products!



Second LO is with the “Sugar & Spice” collection. Such a cute collection!




After that, we have “Made of Awesome“. Not just for the boys!




Next comes “Hello Lovely“. And oh so lovely it is. This is my fav LO with this collection:



Then my favourite Christmas collection – ever – in the history of the world “Tis the Season”.



“Life is Beautiful” comes next, here’s my fav – couldn’t stop putting stuff on this LO!



Then the stunning “Hello Sunshine“. Zoe does colours so well!




Next up is “Free Spirit“:




Another speciality of Zoe’s is BOY collection. Not that they are for boys only, I have made countless girl LO’s with her “BOY” collections. Here is “Totally Rad“:




Collection number TEN was the smashing “Colour Me Happy“:




Then we have “Love Always” which is truly swoon worthy material…



The perfect collection for birthdays next “Make a Wish“.




And finally, the latest release; “Endless Summer“:




Well there you go. It’s been two unbelievable years. Thanks to Zoe, thanks to the rest of the DT, and thanks to all you fellow CVS addicts. Put your application in, you won’t regret it!



ME | Endless Summer LO | Annelie Maddock

HI everyone, welcome to the weekend!

Today I’m sharing a LO featuring ME. I always try and get a few LO’s done with ME in them, it’s so easy to end up behind the camera. But MY story matters, and even if it’s just told on one or two pages a year – do it!

I’ve used the “Endless Summer” collection on my page:


And look – I’ve used paper flowers on my page! It doesn’t happen often for me, but I love the result! Of course, I have added ephemera, stickers, enamel dots & puffy stickers on my page!



My title letters are from the ephemera pack, I have popped them up on the page with pop dots.

Thank you for visiting today, enjoy the rest of your weekend!



TEN | Endless Summer LO | Annelie Maddock

Hi Cocoa Vanilla Studio fans!!

Today I’m sharing another “Endless Summer” LO with you! In spite of it’s name, this collection is not only for summery photos. I’ve used it to document that my eldest is not TEN (!!! – how did that happen?!).




Loving the colours in this collection, so calm and beautiful! I’ve mixed a few of the papers under my photo, then I splattered some mist around them!




Up in the left corner I did a little collection of embellishments to add interest to the page. The veneer clouds are just so cute aren’t they?




I love mixing embellishments, as I am sure you are aware. Zoe just makes so many gorgeous little bits and pieces. Here I have used enamel dots, woodies, veneers, ephemera & alpha stickers.




More embellishments here. I also wanted to talk about photo choice. When do you use b/w photo and when do you use colour? I feel this is a really soft collection, and the b/w photo works really well with it.




My favourite part of this collection? The flamingos. So cute!!


Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have some wonderful Endless summer products coming your way!!

And hello – flamingos? Yes please.

Make sure you get this for yourself, for summer photos or just for anything really. It’s truly lovely.

Goblin Queen | Creative Scrappers Sketch | Annelie Maddock

Hi everyone, hope you are enjoying a happy, crafty weekend!

I am here today to share my LO for the latest collaboration Cocoa Vanilla Studio is doing! Zoe is sponsoring the prize for the October sketch over at Creative Scrappers! Hop on over to participate, and be in to win! You have another week to enter!

This is the sketch we are using:


This is my LO, using the “Free Spirit” collection.


A LO with photos of me on stage! It was a fun musical where I got to wear a horrific wig, disgusting costume and a revolting prosthetic nose. And I loved it!!!


The photos of me were in colour, and since my costume was in bright orange and green I decided to make them black and white. I then used my instax printer to get the smaller photos that worked perfectly with the sketch.

I mixed and mis-matched the patterns and embellishments, it’s what I love to do 🙂


The “Free Spirit” collection is such a vibrant collection, I loved using it for these photos. And I’m OBVIOUSLY a star, so had to add a lot of those on my page……..


I hope you have found some inspiration here today, and I hope to see you taking part in the sketch challenge! Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Father’s Day | Love Always LO | Annelie Maddock

By | 2016-10-01T04:51:55+00:00 October 3rd, 2016|Design Team, Love Always|

Happy Monday everyone!

Today I’m sharing a LO with a photo that I just LOVE. My three favourite ppl in one photo – and a great memory. We went out for a celebratory lunch on Father’s Day, and I managed to get a good photo of my family. Doesn’t always happen. And – there is no other collection that works better, than “Love Always“!


Basically I went to town with layering, something I love to do!


There are just so many treasures to find in these collections, from vellum pieces, to ephemera, stickers, chipboard, veneers, bits & pieces & flair buttons! All of which you can spot here!


Make sure you pick some of these beauties up from the shop, and also check out Zoe’s new collection “Make A Wish” when you’re there!!!

Thanks for stopping by today, come back again!



BALLOONS! | Make a Wish LO | Annelie Maddock

By | 2016-09-21T09:55:48+00:00 September 23rd, 2016|Make A Wish|

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing a LO with a photos I’ve been saving for over 4 years – been waiting for that perfect collection to come… And “Make a Wish” is certainly perfect! My daughter is excitedly chasing balloons in this picture. A day I will never forget, she was SO excited to turn THREE!!


Aren’t the colours in this collection so incredibly fabulous?! I just LOVE them! I went a bit uneven with my paper placing, just wanted to try something new.


A cluster of embellishment goodies – and a paper hat on my daughter. Fab right?


Another cluster of embellies, I just adore the word stickers that come on the sticker sheet. And the vellum shapes are all so divine!


And of course – balloons!!!

Make sure you get this collection as soon as you possibly can, all those celebration photos will be scrapped in no time!!
