Beautiful Family | Heart & Home collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi creative friends!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new scrapbook layout featuring the gorgeous Heart & Home collection! I don't know about you but I have loads of special family photos that I have to document. The Heart & Home collection is so perfect to use to document family photos. I have added 3 photos to this layout and although they are small, they get the memories documented. These photos are of my 2 sons with their 2 younger girl cousins who they ADORE.

I absolutely love the 'B' side of the Golden Fields paper with the typewriter looking phrases and I knew I wanted to use that piece as the background for my layout. I trimmed this piece down to approximately 11' x 11' and then adhered it to the 'B' side of the Leaf Litter paper. I then cut out the blue 3' x 4' card in the top right corner of the Gather paper. I got out my craft knife and cut out the centre of the frame so I could place a photo behind it. I also took the die-cut frame with the 2 spaces from the ephemera pack and placed small photos behind them.

I took several more pieces out of the ephemera pack that I thought would suit my photos including the tag, the 'Our Story' journal card, the floral wreath and the Family title. I started to arrange these on the page, deciding on a rounded horizontal look. For elements that I wanted to stand out and make a statement on the page I adhered using craft foam to add shadows and dimension. I will admit I had some 'help' in deciding what to add in the centre - I walked away from my page for a little while, when I came back, my man had been adding bits and pieces to it for me! What a gem! He added the small family die-cut and the wreath in the centre for me. I loved it that much so I just went with it! How do you think he did? Once I had the horizontal design arranged and glued down how I liked it, I started to add other smaller embellishments.

For my title I took one of the gorgeous Gold Foiled die-cut titles for the title pack and adhered this at the top using craft foam. I then took the individual letters that spell 'Family' from the ephemera pack and adhered these at the bottom of the design also using craft foam. I also layered a phrase sticker from the Accessory Sticker Sheet over the top of these letters. Under the letters I added an arrow die-cut as well. With the tag, I added some twine and tied it in a bow through the hole in the top, I love adding some sort of texture to my layouts, usually it is ribbon or twine or something like that. I absolutely HAD to add some gorgeous florals from the floral ephemera pack, I mostly tucked these into the top corners at each end of the tag and journal card.

Some of the final touches to my layout are the puffy heart stickers (love these!) some more phrase stickers from the Accessory Sticker Sheet and a few smaller die-cuts from the ephemera pack. I cut out a small piece from the Gather paper and adhered this piece above the Beautiful title. I love tucking things in here and there - as you can probably see! Lastly I stamped the date stamp of when the photos were taken as I always do.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! I hope I have inspired you to get creating with your Heart & Home collection! If you haven't already got this gorgeous collection, you REALLY NEED IT! It's sooo pretty!

Happy creating!

Tarrah x
