These Days again – Cocoa Vanilla Studio | Sheena Rowlands.

Hi there Magpies, Sheena here again.

Today I’m sharing with you 2 more layouts featuring the lovely Cocoa Vanilla Studio – These Days collection. This range is just so easy to create with so if you haven’t already seen it hop on over to the shop for a closer look.

Palace Picnic.

I really liked the These Days – Wall of Fame patterned paper & one evening fussy cut all the frames from both a 12×12 sheet and from the A5 paper stack. Using The Good Life paper as my base I laid out some frames until I was happy with how they looked with some going over the edge of the page.

I printed 4 photos small to go over  or under the frames. I wanted to embellish every frame so I had a good look through the floral ephemera and the die cut ephemera looking for pieces to go with the outdoor feel I was trying to create. I added my title using the Mini Puffy alphas to a frame using vellum as the base to help it stand out.

Using more vellum I created shakers with 3 of the frames filling them with coordinated sequins. I added puffy stickers and card stickers to some of the frames. I even wrote my journalling onto vellum with a sharpie before popping it behind a frame.

For my second layout I was drawn towards the These Days –  Family Ties patterned papers with it’s lovely stripes.

There is a process video for this layout here if you would like to watch how it came together.


I cut the stripes from the 12×12  and A5 paper picking out the pink toned ones. They were cut to 6inch lengths, I distressed the edges then machine sewed down the centres. I added a little ink through a stencil to my white cardstock base before  sticking them down  by the centres only.

The 3 square photos were layered with papers from the A5 paper pad and a few frames before being adhered over the stripes. The title word is from the Foam title stickers. I created 3 clusters around the page using fussy cut flowers and butterflies.

I hope these layout inspire you to check out this wonderful range. Do share with us your creations over on our Facebook group and do check out our monthly challenge too.
