You Are Lovely | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi lovelies! Today I am sharing some of my Traveller’s Notebook pages. I’m really excited because I have been creating with the all new ‘Happiness’ collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. It is so beautiful and perfect for making my pages stand out thanks to the gorgeous colour palette.

I really wanted to focus on the 6 x 8 inch paper pad for my pages as it was the perfect size for trimming down and layering throughout my TN.The small amount of excess I trimmed off would be great for backing a photo or using as a decorative border, so it limits waste.

I chose co-ordinating papers to line my TN pages, making sure I left a small border around the edge.Not only does this frame the pages nicely but it helps prevent the pages being too bulky.Especially if I were to of taken it right into the spine of my TN. I used double sided tape to adhere the paper in rather than glue which could make the page buckle.On this double page spread I selected the circle frame die cut to support my photo. I used it as a guide to cut my photo down to fit and loved how it looked like a little window once completed.

As always the floral die cuts are so pretty and I have layered them neatly to fill one of my corners. A small detail I have included is a free hand border I drew with a white pen.It adds a lovely soft touch to the overall balance of my pages.

There is so many pretty papers to choose from in the Happiness collection. These navy ones were some of my most favourite. I created a ‘split’ page on the right by adding a lift up flap over my photo.The floral circle and butterfly die cut added a nice balance to the paper edge.

Peek a boo! There’s another photo hiding under there! I added the lift up flap by cutting a piece of co-ordinating paper the same width as the backing only shorter. I then folded over a 1cm edge and adhered it down with double sided tape.

I’ve used another of the borders from the die cut pack to support my photo and layered more pretty blooms!

The die cut titles make it so easy to frame a project. There are so many combos you can choose to build a title that suits your theme. I selected a more pastel paper for each page but highlighted the borders this time with a black marker.

The typed phrase stickers from the Accessory Stickers finished off my pages nicely. I like to layer them over the top of my photos for a fun effect.
