Capture Happy Little Moments – Storyteller – Cocoa Vanilla Studios – Wendy Meffan

Hi Everyone! It’s Wendy here and this month I am using Cocoa Vanilla Studios Storyteller Collection. I love the brightness of this collection and its bold more primary colours.

I loved the 12×12 Brighter days paper and decided to use it as my background, I cut it into its colour strips and distressed all the edges and then stuck them all back down onto white card stock. I used the die cut ephemera and chose a selection of pieces and chose the words to go with the photo. I decided to position the pieces diagonally down the page and I also colour co ordinated them to the stripes on the page. On reflection looking at the layout at this point I felt it was a bit bare so added flowers from the floral ephemera. I distressed all the edges of the flowers and the other ephemera pieces and attached them all using sticker fixers for dimension on the layout.

Hey Little Magpie has started creating Word and Phrase Ephemera. This pack comes with eighteen words and phrases. I have used three of them on the layout.

I then fussy cut some butterflies and added them using sticky fixers for some dimension, to the clusters again co ordinating them to the colours. I also added hearts from the die cut ephemera to the layout. Finally I used white gesso for splatters over the layout.

If you’ve not seen this collection yet is definitely worth a look over at

Until next time … Happy Scrapping!
