Rad | Boys Rule | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the awesome Boys Rule collection. My older son loves to go to the skate park and either skate or scoot. I just had to snap some pics of him this day while he checked his phone and was holding his skateboard!
Did you get the 6' x 8' paper pad when you got the Boys Rule collection? This paper pad so handy for backing cut files and making cards. I love that I don't have waste a whole 12' x 12' piece of paper just to cut a small section from it!

I cut the hexagon design from plain black cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo and then chose the black, blues and grey coloured papers from the 6' x 8' paper pad to back the hexagon shapes with. Once the entire cut file was backed, I used craft foam underneath it to pop it up off the background paper. I like the dimension and shadows this creates.

I added some of the star stickers and die-cuts to the centres of the hexagons. I also added one of the flair buttons and some of the phrase stickers from the accessory sticker sheet. I also snuck in some of the little stars from the Made of Awesome collection as the colours went perfectly and it was a great way to use them up!
My photo is matted with the white cross paper from the 6' x 8' paper pad and I adhered one of the tabs to the top left corner of the photo also. I placed the tag from the die-cut pack to the left of my photo and added a piece of twine through the whole in the top. I layered one of the star stickers over the top of the tag and also a phrase sticker from the accessory sticker sheet. To finish off my page, I added the date stamp and some splatters of black mist. 

I hope I have inspired you to create a layout using the awesome Boys Rule Collection! Not only is it suitable for boys, it suits girl themed projects too!

Happy creating!

Journey | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new layout created for Sassy Scrappers to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

The Rocket Ships paper from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection is so cool so I decided to cut out a rocket ship using my Silhouette Cameo and used the rocket paper to back it. I then used foam tape to give it dimension and pop it up off the page.

I used the Boy Dog Days paper over to the left of the 'B' side of the Stripes paper to break up some of the red. I layered a 3' x 4' journal card underneath my photo and then placed the photo tucked into the left side of the rocket ship.  

To embellish I used lots of the stickers from the sticker sheet and some of the wood veneer from the September Skies collection. I made the triangles look like it was fire coming out of the rocket ship and the star chippie piece at the top is meant for a firework. I also layered one of the dimensional stickers over the rocket as well.

Thanks for stopping by the Sassy blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Happy creating!

I Moustache You A Question | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

 Today I have a new design team layout to share created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

As soon as I saw that moustache paper in the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection I just knew I was going to create a layout with this title! Lately my husband has been saying this quote as though it has just been invented!! I am not sure if he had just never heard it before but he says it heaps now and he cracks himself up every time! To get this photo, I made my youngest son pose for me with the black cardstock moustache that I cut out on my Cameo machine! I then used the same moustache to embellish the page with!

I didn't want to use a full sheet of the moustache paper as its a little too busy on its own so I used some of the 'B' side of the Rocket Ships paper to break it up a little bit. I placed a piece of it vertically and also cut two strips from the Stripes paper and placed those at the very edges of the page.
I matted my photo using one of the cards from the 3' x 4' journalling cards paper  and placed it on craft foam and adhered it in the very centre of the page.

I layered a strip of the yellow globe paper vertically underneath the photo plus I used the journalling card with the moustache to layer some embellishments over. I used some foam dots underneath the big moustache to create some dimension and shadows, the moustache forms part of the title. The rest of the title is made up from the alphabet stickers from the sticker sheet. I also added a few of the word stickers and a couple of pieces of wood veneer from the wood veneer pack. I cut a word off the washi tape roll too. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Happy creating!

This Happy Place | Free Spirit | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio for the Throwback Thursday feature for this week! I decided to go back and use the gorgeous Free Spirit collectionI absolutely love the 'B' side of the 'Word Jumble' paper from the Free Spirit collection and based my layout on the design of this paper. I added a block piece of the 'B' side of the 'Dreamy' paper at the top to emphasize the angle. I then added two smaller strips of the 'B' side of the 'My Way' paper. I then took 2 of the border strip stickers from the accessory stickers and added those either side.

I matted my photo with the 'B' side of the 'Wildflowers' paper and also layered one of the die-cut frames under the photo and the mat too. I used craft foam to pop up the photo and the photo mat. My title is made up of one of the wood veneer pieces, a die-cut and the letter stickers.  
I added other embellishments around the page including more die-cuts, some woodies, some of the cute puffy stickers and enamel shapes. I also a few extra pieces of wood veneer. Lastly I added the date stamp to finish off the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

I hope I have inspired you to pull out some of your older Cocoa Vanilla collections and create something pretty with it!

Happy creating!

You Will Move Mountains | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Sassy Scrappers

Hope you had a great interNational 
Scrapbook weekend friends!

Today I have a new layout to share created for Sassy Scrappers using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

Being a mother of 2 sons, I do love a good boy range so when I saw the boy version of the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection, I just knew I wanted to get it and create with it!

I started with the Makes Cents woodgrain paper as my base paper and then trimmed the blue spot strip and the top yellow piece from the Border Stripes paper, I then adhered both of these to the very top of the page.

I also cut a 1/2 inch strip from the Stripes paper and added that to under the yellow paper. I took the zigzag sticker from the sticker sheet and also added that under the stripes paper. I then took the 3' x 4' journal cards page and cut some of the cards to add as layers under my photo.

I also fussy cut the tag from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper  and tucked the tag into the left of my photo. I added a couple of the wood veneer pieces from the September Skies pack by Heidi Swapp and my title is made up from the alphabet stickers on the sticker sheet. I added some of that awesome washi tape to some plain white cardstock and then adhered it to the very bottom of the page. I then added another wood veneer piece above the washi strip and layered a word sticker over the top of the wood veneer piece.

Lastly, I added a flair button from my stash and finished off the page with some white mist splatters and the date stamp.

Thanks for stopping by the Sassy blog today! I hope I have inspired you to check out the Sassy store for boy collections!

Happy creating!

Whimsical Cards | Paige Evans/Pink Paislee | Sassy Scrappers

Hi everyone!

Today I have a new project to share with you created for Sassy Scrappers using the gorgeous Whimsical collection by Paige Evans/Pink Paislee. This is my last project using this collection! Stay tuned for something new in the coming weeks!

This week I was really stretched for supplies from my last kit so I decided I would make some super quick cute cards to use up the last of the leftovers! I cut and folded 2 white background card bases and decided to have one portrait and one landscape style.

With the card above, I had some fringing left over from a previous layout so I decided to make use of it by trimming it down to fit the card base. I then adhered the exact same paper behind the fringe to make it look like it was one piece. I added one of the chipboard frames in the centre of the card and added some stickers and a paper strip.
The card below I added both a chipboard and sticker frame and also layered another sticker over the top of the chipboard. I added some banners below and also a couple of the leaf die-cuts. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to purchase any 6' x 6' paper pad from the Sassy store and create a fun project with it!

Happy creating!
