“Good Times” | Grid Layout | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT

I went for a modified grid this time and used as many of the bits and pieces as I could on this one. I love the way it feels both full and balanced at the same time. I did a little bit of layering at the top and bottom of the grid to give it the appearance of depth, but those flair did the job for me! I love adding chunky pieces like flair and foam on my layouts, so when I decide to do a chunky layout, I go all out!

Patterned Paper Play! | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT

Hi y’all! Laura back again with a burst of color in this joyful layout of my darling girls playing together. I just adore their sweet friendship and have to celebrate it at every opportunity! Today’s theme is Throwback Thursday, so I reached into my stash for the very first Cocoa Vanilla collection I ever purchased, the stunning Bohemian Dream! This bold mix of pink, purple, and navy captured my heart from the very first time I saw it.

Using Frames! | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT

Hey y’all! Laura here with a bright rainbow filled layout so sweet it will warm your heart, even in the coldest winter! This gorgeous Daydream collection is just stunning and an absolute “dream” to work with, I have to tell you. My favorite part of this collection are the frames and florals, so I decided to showcase both of them on this darling 9×12 layout of my sweet girl on the trampoline. I even created two more frames with scrap paper to mix up the designs.

ACOT September 2020 Hop!

This month's theme is Fall/Autumn Vibes and because we don't really have a substantial change in our weather here in Mississippi this time of year, I decided to scrap these new school clothes photos! That is an exciting part of the Fall season here!

Sketchy Shenanigans! | A Cherry on Top DT

Every week in the Cherry Crafters’ Facebook group, a new sketch is posted to boost your inspiration to create and last week’s sketch was a stunner! I knew I had just the photos for this one. The Pagemaps sketch only called for one photo, but in typical Laura-style, I just had to change it up and get FIVE on the layout instead!

Stay Colorful | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT

I decided I wanted this layout to have just as much energy as these two bunnies! Using the stunning Happiness collection's 6x8 paper pad to back this sweet heart wreath cut file from Paige Evans made a super easy background when layered on this mixed media styled Sprinkles patterned paper.

“Happy Times” | Cocoa Vanilla Studio DT

When I saw these two photos, the first thing that popped in my mind was to make a quilt pattern. Inspired by my lovely grandma, I cut several of the papers from the 6x8 paper pad with a 1 inch hexagon punch and then puzzled the pieces together to create a quilted flower effect. Such a fun design and so easy to make!
