Love This...

Hi everyone!
 Today I am here to share a new layout with you using the super gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sugar & Spice collection of course!
Love This
I haven't used a great deal of this gorgeous collection because I have sons so I naturally go for the super cute Flying High collection more than this one but I really love doing girly pages for a change and I knew I wanted to add lots of layers for this layout!
Love This Detail
I have used some foam tape under lots of the papers here for dimension, that then allowed me to tuck some embellishments underneath for more texture and variation..I made use of lots of the pretty Sugar & Spice stickers for this as well...I love the stickers!
Love This Detail 2
The only item I have used that is not from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio range is that paper doily that I have cut in half and tucked under some of the layers also...I have added some hidden journaling to the flower journaling card on the left hand side of my layout and tucked it so that it can be pulled in and out...
Love This Detail 3
Thanks so much for joining me on my blog today, I hope I have inspired you to create with your Cocoa Vanilla Studio products...
See you next time, happy creating!

Happy Girls....

Hi all!

Today I am back to share another of the 5 layouts I created for the 2015 Bella Blvd Creative Team Call! I was unsuccessful in making the team however I was really happy with my projects!

You can see 2 of the other layouts I created for the call here and here!

I love this photo of myself and a few of my girlfriends on a recent night out together!

I love to mix up collections and use them for what they are not meant for.....for this layout I have used quite a bit of the Engaged at Last collection but as you can see I used it for a girls night out theme instead of an engagement!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

That's My Boy | Flying High Collection

Hi there!
Today I want to share another layout I have created using the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Flying High collection!
This photo is of my eldest son at just over 1 year old....he is going to be 10 years old later this year!! I can't believe how time flies, I really need it to slow down!!
That's My Boy
The Flying High collection was perfect to use to scrap this photo...it goes perfectly with my son's little denim jacket and super cute beanie! He looks so scrumptious in this photo hehe!
That's My Boy Detail
Everything you see on this layout comes from the Flying High collection..except the white mist and the white pen for the fake stitching..I used my typewriter for my journalling also..

Little Lovebug...

Hi all..

Today I wanted to stop by and share with you the 1st of the 5 layouts that I created as part of my unsuccessful application for the 2015 Bella Blvd Creative Team Call..I was extremely happy with the layouts I created for this call even though I was unsuccessful......I wasn't too upset I didn't make the team as I am ever so grateful for the wonderful opportunities I already have, so time would have been a big thing and besides I really like the challenge of creating with just that particular manufacturer!

I also created a few extra layouts featuring Bella products to share on social media and here on my blog for some exposure, you can see these layouts here, here and here!

 This layout would be one of my current favourites! I love the colours and that super cute photo of my sweet nephew Sam!!

I have used a few bits and pieces from all different BB collections...I love to do this as I feel it busts the stash a little more!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today...

Hi all!

I have another layout to share today that uses some Bella Blvd products again!

My littlest one spent an afternoon climbing trees on my parents property....of course I had to get some photos...lucky my Mum was right behind him under the tree in case he fell! 

I love how just about everything co-ordinates with Bella Blvd products..makes creating so easy!

I used some foam tape to make my photos and photo mat pop off the page..

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

See the Good in Everything.....

Hi everyone!

I am back here with you today as I have a new layout to share using one of the recently released Cut Shoppe Files! The Spread your Wings cut file is one of my recent new favourites!

I used the gorgeous American Crafts Serendipity collection to create my layout, I loved the ombre pink paper from this collection...I knew I wanted to use the Spread Your Wings cut file with this paper to give a descending effect....  
The featured cut file on my layout....'Spread Your Wings'...

I also used 2 of the free cut files found in the latest Cut Shoppe newsletter on my layout, I used the middle heart and the 'Today' word on white cardstock....  sign up for the newsletter here to receive free cut files!

 I used a couple of cute resin embellishments too, the bow and the diamond...
Thank you for joining me on my blog today...I hope I have inspired you to buy some cut files to add to your next project!

Hi everyone!

A few weeks ago I posted a photo on Instagram of my 2 boys watching the rain and wanting to go outside and play!
I wanted to document this memory so I created a layout using that photo and some Bella Blvd products to go with it!

I really love the bright and cute pieces by Bella Blvd...how cute are those umbrellas?!

I decided to type up the song, "Rain, Rain Go Away" on that sticker so I backed it onto some paper and ran it through my typewriter and then reapplied adhesive when I had finished typing! 

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Happy creating!

Little Man | Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Flying High Layout

Hi everyone!
I am here with you today to share another layout I have created....this time I have used the super cute Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Flying High' range!!
I have used a photo of my youngest boy that was taken about 4 years ago now...oh how time flies way too fast! Anyway I thought it the perfect photo to use with the 'Flying High' collection with my little man's cute lil hat and all!
I have used at least one of everything from the Flying High collection to complete my layout....I just love how everything co-ordinates and takes the guess work out of creating!!
Little Man
Products used:
You can see in my detail photo below that I have added some foam tape to the back of my photo to give dimension, you can see how it creates a shadow at the bottom of the photo!
Little Man Detail
Machine stitching helps to outline and give another texture to my layout...I also added some journalling to one of the journal cards from the Journal Card paper and tucked it in behind the top of some papers and my photo as you can see below..
Little Man Detail 2
Make sure you check out the Cocoa Vanilla shop to see all the gorgeous goodies in store!

Hi everyone...

I want to share a really special layout with you today...my sister is pregnant with her first child ( a long time coming) and her and her hubby are delighted!! 
Their surname is 'Hornett' so they decided to nickname their growing bubba...

They gave me an ultrasound photo of my gorgeous niece or nephew (they are keeping it a surprise) so I got busy and created this layout to record the memory and the nickname...

When I saw the gorgeous bumblebees that Bella Blvd made I knew I had to get this memory documented....

 I stayed with the black, yellow and white colour scheme throughout my layout to represent the Bee! I just love the bright and bold Bella Blvd products...they make creating so much fun! 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!
