Flying High for Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Well here it is - my first official layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio!!! (You might have already seen this published on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog a couple of days ago.) I was seriously SO excited when I received the email from Zoe asking me to join her Design Team. I fell in love with the Cocoa Vanilla products as soon as I saw them, as they are full of colour and gorgeous patterns and right up my alley!

For my first layout I decided to tackle the super cute 'Flying High' collection and scrap a pic of my boys. I love using bold patterns and lots of colour on my boy layouts, as the papers tend to do most of the work, and it reduces the need for embellishments. (A good tip for anyone on a budget!)

That being said, I couldn't go past adding SOME embellishments, and these cork stars were the perfect choice! By adhering them using foam tape, they add an extra bit of pop and dimension to the layout, whilst the cork adds subtle texture. (The stars come in packs of 24 various sizes, so they go a long way!)

When it came to adding a title for my layout, the 'Journal Cards' paper sheet provided me with the perfect one. I also cut out a blank one for my handwritten journaling and jazzed it up with a coordinating sticker and flair button. (And how seriously cute is that little plane sticker? Love it!)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope I have provided you with a little dose of "boyish" inspiration! I am so happy I have the opportunity to work with these fantastic products and to share them with you. 

If you would like to get some of the 'Flying High' collection for yourself (or even just to see the rest of the range), it is available from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio shop HERE or check with your favourite scrappy retailer.
Until next time, happy scrapping! X
