Hi friends! A spot of catch up blogging from me today, and I am here to share my first layout featuring the brand new Hello Sunshine collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I chose to scrap this photo of my daughter with her new friend at the beach, as it sums up exactly what this collection is all about - sunshine, fun, cute and colour! Just PERFECT for all those summer photos!
My starting point was the amazing paper I used for my base sheet - it's called Solar Flare, and I was drawn to it instantly. The title was easy - it came straight from the Summer Hits cut apart paper. Layered behind it is another piece from the same sheet, which I clustered together with a cute die cut sun and cloud from the ephemera pack. The sweet little heart is one of the brand new embellishments to the Cocoa Vanilla range - puffy stickers. (And boy, are they super cute!)
Also new to the Cocoa Vanilla embellishment range, are the Woodies. (I think these are going to be a personal favourite of mine!) These gorgeous little wood buttons feature epoxy centres with cute coordinating patterns and images. I layered this anchor one with pieces from the ephemera pack and added a round enamel shape. (There are 50 pieces in the pack including hearts and stars as well this time!)
More ephemera and another Woodie (I told you I loved them!) form this sweet cluster alongside my photo. And I love all the beautiful colours in the layered papers too! The tiny triangle print is from the Sunny Spot paper, and that divine floral is the Full Bloom paper.
I couldn't resist adding a touch more of the stunning floral print along the top edge of my layout. It served as a good grounding point for my journaling cluster as well. My journal tag came from the Summer Hits cut apart paper, and the sweet tab and hi there speech bubble were both from the ephemera pack.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you love what you see and would like to get some Hello Sunshine for yourself, it is available in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio store now. Alternatively, please ask your favourite scrapbooking retailer if they have it (and if they don't, ask them to order it in!)
Til next time, happy scrapping to you all! X
