Scrap Your Stash | Cocoa Daisy

Hey Scrappy friends! I’m back today with another fun layout I have completed recently as part of the Cocoa Daisy Design Team. We were given a theme for a project being ‘Circles’ and I thought I would incorporate this whilst scrapping some of my stash. It’s amazing how you can go back through supplies from months ago and find a whole new way of using them that you may not of thought of before!

I found some amazing Vicki Boutin flower stickers in my stash and straight away found my circles! To begin with I added some Gesso to my page and added some random splotches of Shimmerz spray in “Carribbean Sunset” in a circular shape to the middle of my page. I blended the edges a little with some water and my paintbrush for a soft effect. I love this colour!

Once dry I added two scalloped circles in contrasting paper to the middle, layered over each other. I had cut these out with my Silhouette. Then I began layering lots of the flower stickers and some other die cuts from my stash. I used foam tape for some so that they sat up from my page with dimension.

I really didn’t have any green leaves in my stash of die cuts so I used a few leaf dies and cut my own from some green paper. These were tucked in and around my flowers, where I thought I needed the most balance.

Once completed I loved all the bright bursts of colour.

Life’s Never Crabby!

Hello lovely ones! I’m jumping onto my blog today to share with you a layout I completed recently using the October Cocoa Daisy Memory Keeping Kit. The photo I took recently on our holiday of my daughter and I wanted to capture something fun when creating my layout.

 The Crab cut file is by Paige Evans . I totally fell in love with it and knew it would be a perfect companion for my photo.

I backed the Crab with two different exclusive papers from the kits, carefully tracing each shape and gluing into place.

The cute clouds were a cut file by Cocoa Daisy. To give them extra texture and dimension I added a simple back stitch by hand using embroidery cotton.

I always love using a title on my layouts so I combined two of the different Alpha stickers to do so.

I was really pleased with the finished result.There was so much joy captured in my photo and I think the layout also reflects that.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you would like to check out Cocoa Daisy you can do so HERE.

September Planning with Cocoa Daisy.

Hello sweet friends.My goodness it has been a while since I last visited my blog! So much has been happening behind the scenes that I haven’t had a chance to catch up on it.So today I am dusting off the cobwebs and sharing some of my September planning that I have been working on as a part of the Cocoa Daisy design team.

I’ve been reeeeally sick this past month with the most awful flu, but thankfully my Cocoa Daisy kit brought me some sunshine and happiness to get through it.I’m going to share some of my most favourite pages.This month’s theme has been one of my most favourite!

You will all see why……

It had a lovely colour palette and featured telephones,birdies and typewriters.Ahhhh…..Bliss!I love to fill my planner pockets with all the gorgeous goodies that come with your kit each month.My Simon paperclip always has pride of place.

The left page here above, I have adhered one of the acetate pages to.I couldn’t bring myself to cut it down in any way so I made it into a dashboard cover.

Are you playing along with the Cocoa Daisy Planner Challenge each month?? It’s lots of fun.Play along as little or as much as you want.Simply download and print your free challenge sheet each month from http://www.cocoadaisy.com and use the hashtag #cocoadaisyplannerchallenge on Instagram OR upload your photo to the Cocoa Daisy planner group on Facebook so we can all admire your work. You will find the group here. I like to laminate my sheet and keep it in the front of my planner each month to keep up with each prompt.

I love my little gold bird page mark.I made this out of a leftover piece of acetate from the August Memory Keeping kit, and simply punched the ring holes.It matches the planner theme perfectly.

Love these delicate colours together! Here is another of my ‘quote’ pages I like to embellish with throughout my planner.

The graphics each month on the planner pages and dashboards are consistently gorgeous each and every time!

I’m more of a weekly page planner than daily.Well at least that is where I am most comfortable at the moment and find that’s what works best for me.

September brings Spring to us here in Australia so this was my little tribute to the start of the season.

Another of my creative spreads in my planner.I played with adding the cut doily and heart through the centre which I liked the result .Lots of flower punches and stamping feature too.

I’m totally addicted to adding these Simple Stories pocket pages to my planner now.Love the effect they give.They are a great fit in an A5 planner but you do need to repunch the ring holes.I add washi tape to mine before I do this.

Here’s a few more of my weekly pages……….

Until next time,
