Flying High Layout | Little Man

Hi everyone! 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I thought this week I’d start sharing some of the layouts I’ve done with the Flying High and Sugar & Spice collections… I know I’m biased, LOL, but I loved working with both collections, and can’t wait to work on some more pages!

First up, I’m showing off my Little Man (well, he’s not so little these days, but he’s still pretty cute)!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio - LIttle Man

As you can see, it’s a pretty simple page (and super quick too), but it still packs a punch with all the stars and banner from the Sticker Sheet, and of course, the Flair Buttons! (Did I mention I love those?!?)


One of the things I love most about the Flying High collection is that it can be used for boys of all ages… Even though my little guy is only three years old in these photos, I can totally see this page being done for him now that he’s seven. I think it would even suit a page about my hubby too!


You can download the Project Sheet for this layout, as well as see a complete list of all the supplies used, on our Project Ideas page!

I hope this inspires you to create a page for your own little man… I will be back throughout the week to share more pages and inspiration using our collections 🙂

If you haven’t already, make sure you subscribe to our Newsletter! Subscribers receive an exclusive coupon for $5 off* their purchase of $50 or more, so it’s a great excuse to get some new scrappy supplies 😉


Thanks so much for visiting, and have a great day! 😀

Win Some Flair for Your Stash!

Continuing with my obsession with embellishments, I have another favourite that I love to use over and over again… I can’t get enough of these punchy little doo-dads, and I’m so excited to have them as part of our first collection line-up as well!

Flair Buttons… don’t you just love them?  I don’t know if it’s because I’m a child of the eighties, so button badges bring back happy childhood memories or something…


Maybe it’s because I secretly like getting birthday cards with the big “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” badge on the front that tells everyone I am now officially older and wiser.


Whatever the reason, there has to be something psychological about it all, because there’s just something about these little guys that make me HAPPY! 😛

Give Away Alert!

**The giveaway is now closed**

Do flair buttons bring a smile to your dial as well?  Tell me in the comments, and you might just win yourself both of these sets! Even though they co-ordinate with the Flying High and Sugar & Spice ranges, I’m sure they’ll find a good home in your stash 😉

Leave a comment by Thursday 8th January 11:00pm AEST, and I will choose a winner! 😀

Have a great day! 🙂

Love Wood Veneer? Win Some!

I have a confession to make… I have a thing for embellishments.  Lots of embellishments. Every nook & cranny of my craft space is filled with them. Most of them probably will never see the light of day, but you never know LOL!

One type of embellishment I have come to LOVE recently (and actually use) is Wood Veneer… It is so versatile and perfect for adding finishing touches to a page… not to mention that they are just plain CUTE!! I am so excited that our lines have matching wood veneer – I was giddy with excitement when they landed on my doorstep last week! 😀

Here are a couple of peeks of our wood veneer, up close and personal!




I just cannot wait to use these…

Give Away Alert!

Are you a fan of wood veneer as well?  Tell me in the comments, and you might just win yourself both of these sets! Even though they co-ordinate with the Flying High and Sugar & Spice ranges, I’m sure they’ll be perfect for your stash 😉

Leave a comment by Wednesday 7th January 11:00pm AEST, and I will choose a winner to get some of these fun little embellies! 🙂

The Give Away is now Closed! 🙂

Happy Tuesday!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio Design Team Call!

Hello hello!

It’s day three of our Launch party, and I’m so excited to start this weekend with our very first Design Team Call!

If you love scrapping, love the look of our products, and want to be part of this adventure with us, then we’d love to hear from you!

Check out the image below for all the details!

Applications close Sunday 18th January 2015. We are an Australian-based company, but international applicants are totally welcome!!

Update: I made a change to the requirements section to read “post to our blog once every two weeks” instead of once per week (totally my mistake – I blame sleep deprivation LOL :P)


I would love to hear from you soon!

Have a great day, and I hope you get some scrappy time in there if you can!

Just to Clarify…

Hi everyone,

Wow, we have had lots of love for our first two collections – thank you!! Keep the comments coming – there’s still time to enter! 😀

 I just wanted to take a minute to clarify that the giveaways we’ve been promoting under the Cocoa Vanilla Studio brand are for physical PAPER lines, not digital releases.

There seem to be a few comments which refer to them as digital collections, so I just wanted to clear that up in case there was any confusion!

Have a great day, and once again – thanks so much for all your support!
