Ulli here with you today sharing my first layout with the gorgeous new Bohemian Dream collection with you.
This week we show here on the Cocoa Vanilla blog a project that describes our scrapbooking style. I would describe my scrapbooking style as playful and light. I often take white cardstock as my background and I love it to use girly collections with the colors pink and mint and with flowers. And so I thought the new Bohemian Dream collection would be perfect to make a layout in the “thinkpinkandmint-style”.
I decided to make a page with a black and white photo of our little daughter. The beautiful colors and pretty embellishments from the Bohemian Dream collection are pretty perfect for girly projects.
I used a diamond cut file from my Silhouette library and backed it with my favorite paper, the “Wild and Free” patterned paper from the Bohemian Dream collection. Therefor I used the paper side with the multicolored dots. Then I stitched with my sewing machine and white sewing thread over the outlines of the diamond and let overlap some rests of the sewing thread. I love the playful look when I don’t cut off the sewing thread completely. I think this is a style that´s typical for me.
Then I cut two paper stripes from the “Kaleidoscope” and the “Wild and Free” papers from the pretty new Bohemian Dream collection. I used the side with the woodgrain from the “Kaleidoscope” paper and the blue side from the “Wild and Free” paper. I fringed the blue paper with my fringe scissor and glued both paper stripes on the lower quarter of my white 12×12 cardstock. Then I stitched a few times over the border above.
I placed my photo on my layout and glued the diamond with glue dots on the right side above. Then I splattered some gold and black paint across the page. That´s also a typical thing for me – I love it to do that and I nearly always use only the colors black and gold.
I added some of the gorgeous flower die cuts from the new Bohemian Dream collection under and above the right corner of the diamond and glued the super cute chipboard bird over it. I also decorated it with the “Live a colourful life” and the “Be yourself” stickers from the Accessory sticker sheet.
On the left side I glued the “Hello beautiful” sticker and a die cut butterfly on the diamond.
I glued also some of the amazing die cut flowers on the left lower corner from the photo.
Then I inked the upper part of the cute “Lovely” chipboard title with a pink ink pad and let it dry. I placed the title over the woodgrain stripe and stitched over it with my sewing machine.
I glued the “Shine Bright” chipboard sticker over my photo and added one of these cute enamel hearts over it. Then I typed the date with my typecast on a label sticker and glued it with glue dots under my photo. Glue dots are also always a inherent part of my layouts because I love to work with more dimension on my projects. And I also often use my beloved mint typewriter to type the date and/or the journaling on my layouts.
After that I placed some word stickers on the paper stripes – two of them with glue dots as well. Then I glued the „Wild child“ button from the Bohemian Dream collection besides the chipboard title on my layout. I really love the amazing Cocoa Vanilla flair buttons. They are so adorable and they are always an eye catcher!
To finish off my page I added some enamel dots in orange, blue and pink on my layout. Enamel dots and shapes are always some of my favorites embellishments, because I use them on nearly all my projects for the last finishing. They give projects some playfulness as well.
I hope you like my blogpost and my layout. What scrapbooking style do you have and what techniques do you use often?
