This Rocks for Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone! Just popping in today to share my very first layout using new Totally Rad collection about to be released from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. As a mum of twin boys, I am always super excited when a new boy collection comes out, and this one is awesome!

I took the opportunity to create a layout featuring a photo of the boys ready to head off on a new adventure - their very first day at daycare.

"This Rocks"

I started with the gorgeous woodgrain print on the B side of the Stellar paper as my base (I am a total sucker for a good woodgrain!) I also used pieces of the Top Gear, Happy Snaps and Mix Tape papers to form a large, layered mat for my photo. The patterned papers in this collection are fabulous! I find a good mix of bold patterns makes it really easy to create a great boy layouts.

Included in my layers were also pieces from the die cut ephemera pack; some of the accessory stickers; and pieces from the cut apart paper.

I topped this cluster with a cute little camera flair from the flair button pack, which I nested on some white cotton thread. And to coordinate with the gorgeous woodgrain background I used, I included pieces from the wood veneer pack too.
Wood veneer pieces are a great way to bring a touch of natural texture and dimension to your layouts. There are 22 pieces in the pack from this collection. Many of them are etched, giving them an extra degree of detail. They can be easily coloured or altered, or simply left as is.

Finally, I finished off my layout by adding my journaling; a sprinkling of enamel shapes and a cute little Woodie button. Then a little stamping scattered around the page and I was done.
I had so much fun using this collection - there are just so many cool pieces to work with! I am looking forward to sharing more of it with you soon.
Totally Rad has started shipping to retailers this week and will also be available in the Cocoa Vanilla store from the 4th March
Until next time, happy scrapping! X
