Hi Cocoa Vanilla Studio Friends!
Amanda here, and boy-oh-boy am I excited to be sharing my first official layout with our delightful new Happiness collection! This line is so bright and beautiful & I just adore all those florals!!! But I could rave for hours, so let’s get straight into my project…
“Here & Now”
Wa wa WOW!!!!
No surprises that my first layout with the HAPPINESS collection features the super stunning floral wreath paper, CV-HA005 SO FRESH. Isn’t it just the prettiest?! Totally swoon worthy!
I build on this floral wreath base with lots of fussy cut butterflies from pattern paper, CV-HA008 BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL, and then create two more circular designs within the floral wreath. A ring of fussy cut butterflies, and one of DIE CUT EPHEMERA florals to frame my sweet photo. SO pretty! Let’s take a closer look…..
Just look at those fussy cut butterflies! So detailed and perfectly positioned within the wreath!
But it’s the floral frame around my photograph that really has my heart….
It’s created entirely from DIE CUT EPHEMERA blooms, with one of the CV-HA008 BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL butterflies tucked into the floral frame for good measure. I foam mount this cluster so that my photo really stands out and remains the focus of my layout (despite all those colorful distractions!).
Here’s a better view for you….
Sigh! Could it get any sweeter?! Florals always have my heart!!!
The butterflies are such a beautiful element to this collection too! You’ll notice that I opt for only blue butterflies in my center ring. Not only does this cut through all the pinks, oranges and greens, it also helps with visual definition too!
To further enhance the circular flight pattern of the butterflies, I add sequins to strengthen the path, and define the ring.
ACCESSORY STICKERS are always a staple item in any Cocoa Vanilla Studio collection for me! The typewriter font word stickers are always the perfect way to add sentiments and journaling to your pages.
For finishing touches, I sprinkle a few sequins around the wreath….
Simple, quick & easy creating that looks Aaaah-MAZING!!!
HAPPINESS is all kinds of paper beauty! And I hope that I have inspired you to get creating with it too!
Thanks so much for visiting today!
