More These Days | Julie Taylor

Hello Magpies, Julie back with you again today sharing another layout using the lovely These Days collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.


Family Memories



I based this layout round the cutfile which is from Amelia Creates, out the store, & you can get it as a digital version or as a physical cutfile!! Which is fab if you don’t own a cutting machine.

I started by adding some Fossilized Amber distress oxide spray & brayered it onto my background paper, B-side of Pretty Posies. I then added texture paste, through a grid stencil & added splatters of Bundled Sage distress oxide spray. I ripped a couple of inches off the bottom & added the B-side of Daybreak paper & some pompom trim along with a small tag cluster.



I backed the cutfile with the Daybreak paper, which has a lovely ombre effect & added it over my mixed media. I’ve backed the photo with papers out the 6×8 paper pad & tucked it in above the cutfile to the left.




Then came the fun bit of adding all the embellishments. I cut another tag & added that below the cutfile & clustered all the bits around that, from the right of the photo, down to the bottom where i added the house & family die cut ephemera piece.




Pop on over to the store & take a peak at this collection. It was one i’d overlooked but i’ve done 2 layouts with it & both look very different & think it would be great for any occasion.


Thanks for looking,

until next time,
