Let’s Explore – Cocoa Vanilla Studio Heart & Home

Hello Magpies, Amy here and I am sharing another layout that I created using Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Heart & Home collection alongside some other supplies from the Hey Little Magpie shop.

Let’s Explore

I really enjoyed combining the Heart and Home collection with a title from the puffy word stickers from Cocoa Vanilla Studios Great Escape collection, a butterfly from Vicki Boutin’s Discover + Create paper and a cool HLM mesh die.

But first I started my layout by laying down some mixed media. I used Scattered Straw (pale yellow) Distress Oxide. First I used the packaging technique in a sideways T shape, and then I used a brick stencil to add some more details on top of this using the same coloured ink. Finally I added splatters with the watered down ink and a paintbrush.

I used the doily border punch on the woodgrain patterned paper and stuck this horizontally onto the middle of my layout. I build my layout around this piece. I used the mesh die to cut two pieces of the pale blue patterned paper and placed one piece below and one above the woodgrain paper. Next I layered up some of the frame die cuts and a ‘the story’ ephemera card. Then added my photo on top.

Then I added some of the flowers from the floral ephemera pack. These are always one of my favourite items in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio collection. I tucked them under my photo in small clusters. I added the fussy cut butterfly to the top left of my layout, using foam pads to made the wings dimensional.

I added my title and some more diecuts. The layout was finished by adding some grey puffy stars that are on the same sheets as the title words.

Thanks for taking the time to read about my layout. You can find the supplies over on the Hey Little Magpie website. I will be back in a few days to share another project that I have created using both CVS Heart & Home and CVS Great Escape collection.
