Hi crafty friends,
Ulli here with you today with a new 12×12 layout. In two days is Valentine´s day and so it´s all about love here at the Cocoa Vanilla Blog.
I love wedding pictures and so I searched for a photo from me and my husband from our first kiss as bride and groom on our wedding day. As background I used the wooden paper “Plus One” from the Cocoa Vanilla You Rock collection. I cut out the geometric heart cut file from Cocoa Vanilla and some flowers with my Silhouette Cameo. Then I backed the heart with the Bohemian Dream “Beautiful Mess” patterned paper. This paper has a part with a beautiful color transition from yellow to pink. I fussy cut the flowers from the Hello Lovely “Glimmer” paper und glued them under the heart. I also glued the Cocoa Vanilla cut outs in white under it.
I used a mask with flowers and and glued it with some Washi stripes on the top of my layout to fix it. Then I used white texture paste and I get a nice floral pattern on my background.
I placed the heart on my layout. For the title I used the “Hello” die cut from the Hello Lovely collection and the chipboard title “You” from the Bohemian Dream collection. Then I stitched over the chipboard title with my sewing machine.
I cut a triangle from the black and white striped Hello Lovely “Life Story” paper and glued it in the left corner on the top of my layout. I searched in my Cocoa Vanilla goodies embellishments in pink and yellow. I found in the Make A Wish collection pack some sequins, acrylic flowers and a tassel in pink. Also some Die Cut Embellishments from the Bohemian Dream collection.
I placed my photo on a doilie in yellow and decorated it with the “Hello Beautiful” die cut, the butterfly die cut, a word sticker and some sequins.
I made a banner with some papers from the Bohemian Dream collection, a rubber charm from the Wild At Heart collection and some Bohemian Dream stickers on the right side besides my photo.I stitched over it and glued the pink tassel on it. Then I wrote my journaling under the banner and decorated it with some sequins and enamel dots.
I stamped the date on a little tab and fixed it with my stapler on the right side of the geometric heart. Therefor I used some glue dots to add some dimension.
I splattered some gold paint across the page and then I decorated the geometric heart with sequins, acrylic roses and enamel dots and shapes. I took always the colors from the parts of the paper to underline the color transition with my embellishments.
I hope I could inspire you one way or another. Thank you for stopping by today.
