Hello Cocoa Vanilla fans! It’s Sue Plumb here with you today, sharing my latest creation using the Hello Lovely collection…this time with one of my boys. (Although I have to admit, the subject is a little bit girly! hehe)

This layout was out of character for me – very clean and simple. Usually when I create, I like to add lots of layers and many more embellishments. This time by keeping it simple, it really allowed the gorgeous papers to shine. I paired the bold horizontal stripes of the Life Story paper with the soft, pretty polka dots of the Confetti paper. I think they made a stunning combination.


In keeping with the overall simplicity of the design, I kept the embellishments to a minimum too. For my main cluster, I layered together multiple pieces from the die cut ephemera pack, and then added a tiny heart from the accessory stickers sheet. Using pieces with all the same colour not only tied them together, but helped keep them understated.


Here I added another sticker from the accessory sheet, which was perfect for my layout theme, and a sprinkling of enamel dots to compliment the polka dot paper. The enamel dots are divine – just look at those colours!


The title was created using the alphabet stickers from the Made of Awesome collection. You will find many elements from the Hello Lovely and Made of Awesome collections coordinate beautifully, so you are able to use them interchangeably. Besides the great font, the other aspect of these stickers I appreciate is their size. I like that I can easily add a title to my page that doesn’t overwhelm it.


Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to come back soon for even more inspiration from our Design Team.

In the meantime, if you haven’t already got your own stash of either Hello Lovely or Made of Awesome and you would like to, please check with your favourite retailer or visit the Cocoa Vanilla Studio shop.

Til next time, happy scrapping!

Sue X
