Welcome and thank you for hopping along our monthly blog hop for the month of June 2017. The wonderful scrapbook kits this month featured the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection. This collection was simply gorgeous and I had a hard time cutting into some of these beautiful patterned papers.
I used 1 inch stripes of each patterned paper in the kit ( in order to hoard the rest) and cut into 1 inch squares. Be patient while cutting your squares as this step took some time to complete.
I am scrapping a beautiful photo taken during my trip to New York for Easter weekend. I am originally from there and my oldest friends still live up there as well. I've been friends with this young lady since 5th grade and she is now a mother of two twin boys who are 18 months. I printed the photo in black and white in order to not compete with my busy background.
Before adhering these 1 inch squares down I chose a light pink solid piece of card stock from my stash that matched the pink in the collection. I added splatters to the background using Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Navy as well as Pink. I also when in with Liquitex white ink as well. These three colors are featured in the collection.
My T square ruler came in handy in placing all the squares down in close to perfect rows. I skipped a box from time to time for added interest to the layout. The Clique kit came with the entire die cut ephemera pack and I used as many bits and pieces around the focal point. The canvas star was also included and I loved the added texture it added and then I just added layers of die cuts so that your eye can travel around the page.
Thank you so much for joining our blog hop today.
