Hello Scrappy Friends! This is Laura Alberts, Guest Designer and huge fan of Cocoa Vanilla Studios! I’m sharing a 12×12 Layout using the Unforgettable collection, a large heart cut file from Cathartic Scrapper, and a photo with two of my daughters snuggled up together for a story. By using the inside pieces of this cut file, which I normally might have tossed, I’ve created a geometric heart background! I hand-stitched a border all the way around to give it an outline and add texture to the page.
For my three clusters, I started with the Cut to You cut file with leafy fronds cut from the Garland paper and then backed the leaf outlines with vellum. Layering the large floral swag from the ephemera pack on top made for a lovely large cluster! I added a tag from the 6×12 sticker sheet as well as two tickets, tucked behind the left side of the photo, and a few word phrases on the right side. A tab and small cluster on the right of the photo as well as a few clear stickers created a tiny cluster there and a cluster of florals and leftover fronds on the top left of the heart finished it off! I added clear tiny heart stickers and enamel dots for the detail embellishing, then splattered with gold mist.
This layout wouldn’t be complete without using one of the striking titles from the Unforgettable collection and “Stories” was perfect! I’m absolutely in love with the font on these titles as well as the small foam hearts, that I sprinkled into my clusters to help tie in the black from the title. I had so much fun with this layout and I hope it inspires you!
