Snow Much Fun | Frosty Friends collection | Pretty Little Studio

 Hi creative friends,

 Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Pretty Little Studio featuring the gorgeous Frosty Friends collection. I have some super cute photos of my nieces in the snow and this collection is perfect to document these cute moments!

I was inspired by the Snow Angel frames and Fuzzy Socks tags in the Frosty Friends collection and decided to add many of these to my layout. For my background paper, I chose the 12'x 12' Icicles paper and then trimmed this down and backed it with the 12' x 12' A Button Nose paper in Jade  I decided to use 2 of the tags and 3 of the frames on my layout and I layered a paper doily underneath the middle tag.

I added my photo behind the middle frame and popped it up with foam tape to add some dimension. For my title, I chose the Snow Much Fun die cut from the North Pole die-cut pack I added foam tape underneath the title also and adhered it to the right of the photo. I also added some of the circle snowflake die-cuts. In the frame on the left, I added one of the gorgeous flair buttons from the Let It Snow pack and a heart die-cut.

On the far left I had that cute vintage snowman in my stash, he definitely had to make it on my page - how cute is he?! Under the photo and left frame, I added the black scalloped borders from the Nordic border pack Finally I added some of the super cute small phrase stickers from the Marshmallow World words sheet for some pops of colour and more detail. I also stamped the date stamp as a final touch.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?! Check out the Pretty Little Studio store for these gorgeous goodies and so much more!

Sweet Summer | My Candy Girl collection | Bella Blvd

Hi friends,

Today I am very excited to share a new scrapbook layout created for Bella Blvd featuring the gorgeous, brand new My Candy Girl collection!

This collection is absolutely beautiful and perfect for little girls and boys too! I have documented some photos of my gorgeous niece trying some ice cream! How cute are the photos? This collection was perfect to document this sweet moment!


I started by choosing the teal/aqua heart paper as my background, I then cut a strip from the multi coloured paper and adhered this piece vertically onto the background paper. I then added my super cute photos staggered on either side of the paper strip in the centre. I did leave some adhesive off from under the photos so that I was able to tuck in some embellishments later.  For my title, I used part of the 'Sweetest' word from the chipboard icon stickers to spell the word 'Sweet' and I also used the Florence alphabet stickers in white to spell the word Summer, I placed the Sweet word vertically and the Summer word horizontally.


At the bottom of the left side photo, I added the cute ice cream truck die-cut and made a cluster of other things including stickers here also. On the left of the left photo, I added an ice cream Bella Pop from the Sugar Sugar packThe Doohickey cardstock stickers have some great elements and words included, perfect to help tell your story. I personally love the border stickers in these and added one to the far left edge of the layout.


On the left of the 'Sweet' title, I added one of the chipboard scallop borders and to the right of the title, I added one of the larger ice cream chipboard stickers. Now let's talk about the amazing ephemera pack! These packs have SOOOO many gorgeous pieces in them! I picked out some of the cute ice creams, a tag, the banner and a few of the sentiments to embellish my layout. The ice creams I tucked in above the right side photo and I added the cute banner at the top of the rainbow stripe paper. The tag, I tied some white twine on and tucked it into the right of the photo. I popped up the 'Sweet Life' title with craft foam to help draw your eye to this piece.


When I am working on my pages, I always try to add the larger elements like my title and photos first and then I finish off with the smaller embellishments. The last things I added to this layout were the puffy stickers and the super cute sprinkle epoxy stickers. I love how my layout turned out and I hope you like it too?!


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Make sure you get your local stockist to get this gorgeous collection in for you or you can purchase from A Cherry On Top and

Happy creating!

Everyday Stories | Unforgettable collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Today I am back to share a new layout created for Cocoa Vanilla focusing on an 'Everyday' theme and featuring the gorgeous Unforgettable collection!

When I think of 'Everyday' I think of myself with my immediate family - my husband and our 2 sons. It's not often we get photos together so I take the opportunity when I can! I took a piece of the teal and white stripe paper and trimmed it to measure 8' x 12' I then cut it to measure 4' x 12' and then cut this into 3 pieces to measure 3' x 4' rectangles.

I bent the edges of each piece and adhered them in the centre of the small text patterned paper. I trimmed the small text paper down so that I could mat a pink piece of 12' x 12' paper behind the entire layout. I adhered my photo slightly to the left of the layout and in the centre.

On the right of the photo, I added the Everyday sticker  from the accessory sticker sheet popping it up using foam dots for dimension. The sticker formed the first part of my page title, the second part of my title is the word 'Stories' from the Foam Title Stickers that I placed under my photo. Also on the right I tucked in some floral ephemera, a foam black heart and a die-cut heart and an enamel dot

On the left I tucked in more ephemera including the camera, some tickets and some more enamel dots. I also added one of the gorgeous flair buttons here too. Lastly I added a few small things including some phrase stickers, dropped a few sprinkles of mist and stamped the date stamp.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?! The design of this layout is easy to recreate yourself using any of the amazing Cocoa Vanilla collections!

Happy creating!

So Grateful For You | Grateful Heart collection | Pretty Little Studio

 Hi friends,

Today I am back to share a pretty layout created for Pretty Little Studio featuring the gorgeous Grateful Heart collection. This collection is stunning and perfect for soft, pretty girl pages.

I chose the beautiful 12' x 12' Seasonal Wreath paper as my focus and starting point for my layout. I trimmed this paper down slightly so I could add a coordinating piece of cardstock behind the entire layout.

I pretty much left the paper as it was, not adding too much to take away from the gorgeous wreath design. I just added my photo, a title and a few embellishments. I placed my photo on the right side of the page and layered a pretty paper doily and some small patterned papers under the photo. This helps to ground the photo against the background paper. I took one of the die-cut titles from the Remember This pack and added it to the left of my photo.

Above my photo I added 2 cute tabs and around the wreath I added 2 heart die-cuts with foam dots, a love word die-cut from the Remember This pack and a pretty flair button from the Snapshots pack Lastly I added two word and phrase stickers near my title.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?!

Magic | Spring Floral Banners | CUT to YOU

Hi friends,

Today I am SO excited to be sharing a layout created for CUT to YOU! It's a scrap lift of one of the boss lady - Gwen's gorgeous layouts as part of the CTY 3rd birthday celebrations this month! Happy birthday CUT to YOU

The layout directly below is my interpretation of Gwen's gorgeous layout! 

The Spring Floral Banners cut file is the cut file design we both used on our pages!

This is Gwen's gorgeous layout that inspired me featuring the Spring Floral Banners cut file, you can see that I was inspired by the cut file and how Gwen added 2 photos on her page.

I cut the cut file design from white cardstock as I mostly do and then went ahead and backed all the florals and banner sections with different patterned papers from the Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes Willow Lane collection. Once the cut file was all backed, I adhered it to my chosen background paper with craft foam to pop it up off the page and create some dimension and shadows. I then trimmed down this background paper so that I could add a border paper. I only had one sheet of the outside border paper left and as I wanted to add this to one of the banners, I improvised and gutted the middle of the paper, no one would ever know! I love all the gorgeous colours that are in the cut file.

I then placed my 2 photos similar to how Gwen had placed her photos. My youngest niece turned 4 a few weeks ago and she is a crazy horse and unicorn fan!! My sister got her a horse ride for her birthday and she was OVER the MOON!!! She absolutely LOVED it! The photos show you just how much she loved it! I found the unicorn chipboard piece and added it to the photo on the right to make it look like Olivia was riding the unicorn instead of the horse! Super cute right?!

I added my title 'Magic' in a similar place to Gwen, as I only had one word instead of 2 like Gwen, I made it work. I added embellishments like chipboard, ephemera, clear stickers and phrase stickers to help enhance the cut file design, to help tell the story and to also balance the entire page. You will notice that I have created some visual triangles with colours on the layout, this definitely helps to make a layout pleasing to look at. I stamped the date stamp on a journalling sticker and called my layout finished. I LOVE how it turned out. Thank you so much Gwen for the gorgeous inspiration layout and for the push to scrap lift one of your beautiful pages! 

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you liked how I scrap lifted Gwen's layout as much as I enjoyed creating it? Make sure to check out the AMAZING cut file designs in the CUT to YOU store!

Happy birthday CUT to YOU and happy creating!

The Story | Document Life collection | Pretty Little Studio

Hi friends!

Today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout created for Pretty Little Studio featuring the awesome Document Life collection!

I started out choosing the 12' x 12' 'Be Happy' hexagon paper for my background, trimming it down and adding a piece of orange cardstock behind to mat the layout. I then fussy cut all the Happy Hexagons from the cut apart sheet and adhered these using pop dots onto the background paper in a vertical design slightly on the left.

I matted my photo with the 8' x 8' Kaleidoscope paper and tucked in an orange tag behind the photo and tied some black twine through the hole. Under the tag and photo, I added a piece of the 8' x 8' Queen Bee paper to continue with the hexagon theme of my page. I popped up the photo with craft foam and left a gap at the top to pull out the tag to read the journalling.

To continue with embellishing my page, I opted for the star stickers and the cute die-cut cardstock titles. I added 3 of the titles to help tell the story. The large fabric arrow on the left of my photo and the flair button on the right are from my stash. Lastly I added some of the cut apart word flags and stamped the date stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed  creating it!

Loving the Everyday | CUT to YOU

Hi creative friends,

Today I am back with you to share a soft, pretty, girly layout created for CUT to YOU featuring the gorgeous Loving the Everyday title cut file.

I cut the design out from white cardstock and then backed the open spaces in the words with different patterned papers. Once the spaces were backed, I added craft foam underneath the cut file. I then adhered the cut file to another sheet of white cardstock. I love how you can see some shadows created by doing this. I added the gorgeous photo of my youngest niece on the right of the title and also tucked in some fussy cut black and white flowers. I had to cover up the heart in the cut file as this is where I placed my photo however I overcame losing the heart by placing a large fabric heart from Charm's Creations in its place.

On the left of the cut file, I tucked in and adhered some more black and white fussy cut florals. Above the cut file, I added the 'Happy' die-cut, the colours in this pieces matched perfectly with the colours I used to back the cut file. Some embellishments that I add to my pages simply might not go with the story I am telling on my layout however if the colour is right, then it usually makes it on to the page! A perfect example of this is the trumpet its a pretty, soft aqua colour and the shape and size were right, I added it on top of the Everyday part of the cut file title. I love the addition of this and like I said it has nothing to do with the layout, I just wanted to add it anyway!

At the bottom of the cut file, I have added some of the small, scalloped tear off papers from the Crate Paper Carousel collection and adhered these overlapping each other, I also lifted up the ends to create some more interest on my page. On top of the fabric Charm's Creation heart, I added some phrase stickers and on top of the cut file I added 2 puffy heart stickers and a clear word sticker. On top of the scallops I also added an aqua die-cut and a puffy word sticker here too. Lastly I trimmed down the white cardstock and adhered it to one of the soft pink patterned papers, I then machine stitched a border around the entire layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout today and that you were inspired in some way! Make sure you check out the CUT to YOU online store for amazing cut files for your projects!

Just Chillin | Sunkissed collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

 Hi friends!

Today I have a new layout to share created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio featuring the gorgeous Sunkissed collection! This collection is so bright and happy! There are lots of cute ice cream icons in this collection and I knew I had the perfect photos to scrap of my eldest son when he was 5 years old eating an enormous ice cream!

My layout was definitely inspired by those ice cream icons, I knew I wanted to use the pocket card as part of the design. I began by taking a piece of the orange ombre paper from the A5 paper stack and building most of the design on top of this paper. As I used a white cardstock background, I needed a bright colour to help give all the elements a lift. I also added some strips of the Sunny Days 12' x 12' paper to the top and bottom of the layout.

As my photos are small, I was able to add 3 to the page, I used craft foam underneath the photos to pop them up off the page. I just love the expressions on his face eating the ice cream! To add some interest, I took some more of the papers from the A5 paper stack and punched the edges with a scallop border punch, I then tucked these into the top and bottom and the left edge of the orange ombre A5 paper. I pulled lots of pieces from the die-cut ephemera pack including the banner, the large ice cream die-cut, a rainbow, a couple of pennant banners and some hearts. I added these around my photos and to help with the design of the layout.

I also had to add a foam gold glitter title and some hearts in the same too. I love how the gold gives the layout some extra oomph! To embellish further, I created some small clusters of embellishments around the page adding some clear stickers, a wood epoxy button, puffy stickers and accessory stickers too! I pretty much added one of everything to the page lol! I typed some journalling onto some scrap pieces of cardstock and then cut them into strips. I am really liking journalling strips right now!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?!

Make sure you check out the Cocoa Vanilla online store to get this amazing Sunkissed collection! Or you can ask a local stockist to get it in for you!

It's the Weekend | Document Life collection | Pretty Little Studio

 Hi creative friends,

Today I am back to share a new layout created for Pretty Little Studio featuring the gorgeous Document Life collection

I started my layout by adding a super cute vintage rainbow to the top left corner of a plain sheet of white cardstock. I then fussy cut some of the Cut Apart-La Fresca labels and arranged and adhered them in a diagonal vertical design to look as though they are falling out of the rainbow.

I cut a strip from the Dolly 12 x 12 paper and adhered it to the left side of the plain white cardstock. I added some extra colour to each of the labels by taking out my watercolour paints, l used a small paint brush directly on the cardstock and also did some flicks of paint wit the paint brush.  

I placed the cute photo of my niece to the left of the labels, layering some of the papers from the Documented Life collection under my photo. To embellish my page, I took out some old cork hearts and added some of the Star stickers some of the Seen and Noted die-cut titles and some of the Just Because word flags I also included the flair button that says 'Highlight' from the Insta-Worthy set Lastly I sprinkled some black mist and stamped the date stamp to finish my layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it? Check out the Pretty Little Studio online store for some stunning products!

Shine Bright | Unforgettable collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

 Hi friends,

 Today I am excited to share a new layout created for Cocoa Vanilla featuring the amazing Unforgettable collection. This week I had the fun assignment to scrap lift one of, Rachel Lowe, my fellow design team members beautiful layouts. The layout below is my interpretation of Rachel's gorgeous page.....

Below is Rachel's gorgeous layout that I chose to take inspiration from. I love how Rachel has created a flowing diagonal design on her page and I still have quite a bit of the Unforgettable collection in my stash so this was a great way to use some of it up.

I replicated the flowing diagonal design and the plain white cardstock background of Rachel's layout. I placed my foam title sticker title in a slightly different position to Rachel however you can see that I have mostly stuck to Rachel's beautifully designed layout. I chose to document a sweet photo of my niece, the Unforgettable collection is a gorgeous collection for cute little girls.

Under my photo, I layered one of the wood grain die-cut frames and also tucked in lots of the stunning floral die-cuts. I love how this draws your eye to the subject in the photo. On top of the frame I added some words from the Accessory sticker sheet and a die-cut. I also layered one of the cute flair buttons on top of the camera die-cut and placed this to the left of my photo.

I absolutely LOVE the bows and tassels pack from this collection, I just had to add one of the bows to my page since it's a little girl page! To balance out the top left of the page, I continued the flow of my page by placing my title and a cluster of florals in the bottom right corner. The butterflies in this collection are stunning also, I added a few of these on my layout as Rachel did. Lastly I added a few of the cute enamel dots, sprinkled some black mist and stamped the date stamp.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it? How do you think I went with the scraplift of Rachel's gorgeous layout? I hope you think I did it some justice?!

Happy creating!
