Hi Cocoa Vanilla Studio Friends!
I made SO many beautiful creations with this line when it was first released back in 2015, but it seems I’m still LOVING it as I had no trouble creating with it again! It’s just soooooooo preeeeeetty!!!
Here’s what I came up with,
Ga ga gorgeous!!!
You’ll spy lots of pretties here!
I start with a white cardstock base, to which I add a scalloped punched border trim with pattern paper, CV-HL002 GLIMMER.
Next, I cut out that divine Butterfly Ring cut file (from Citrus Twist Kits) with our super beautiful CV-HL006 FLOWER PATCH pattern paper. Absolutely gor-jus!!! This pretty floral paper is simply heavenly! I draw on the colors to inspire my mixed media base.
The media is a simple series of coordinating watercolor rings, paint flicks & splatters. Lots of fun! Once dry, I apply the Flower Patch butterfly ring, and begin to embellish the cut file.
First, I frame my darling photograph with an DIE CUT EPHEMERA frame, and then adorn it with pretty blooms….
Oh how darling is this?!! So super sweet!
Next, I take as many butterfly embellishments that I can find, and add them to my page! I love the look of layered butterflies, so I use a few DIE CUT EPHEMERA ones on my cut file butterflies. Cute! For a bit of ‘wow’ factor, I also fussy cut that beautiful Monarch butterfly from pattern paper, CV-HL005 LUCKY DIP and add it to the largest butterfly in the ring. Talk about a feature piece! This is such a beautiful detail!
Isn’t it something?!!
If you look carefully, you’ll also spy a few teeny tiny WOOD VENEER butterflies layered on the cut file, as well as scattered around the ring, too! Speaking of veneer, I use the exquisitely cut ‘love you’ WOOD VENEER as my layout title. So awesome!
To draw a lil more attention to the title, I add that stunning brass LUCKY CHARMS arrow to direct you in!
For the remainder of my layout, I simply decorate and embellish on and around the butterfly ring with SEQUINS, ENAMEL DOTS, DIE CUT EPHEMERA & more WOOD VENEER. With such a darling photograph, I can’t resist adding a few DIE CUT EPHEMERA & VELLUM HEARTS. So Beautiful!
Such a simple design, and yet so incredibly detailed and beautiful!
All the butterfly LOVE!!!
I hope my layout has inspired you to go back and revisit some of our older collections! I think it’s safe to say that they’re still winning my heart over! Hello Lovely, indeed!
Thanks so much for visiting!
