We are happy to welcome Irit Landgraf to Cocoa Daisy this month as our guest designer. Due to shipping delays, Irit didn’t get her kit in time for reveal, but she’s working on creating with our February scrapbooking kit, Pop Fizz, right now! We’ll be sure to share her beautiful work with you as soon as possible! But until then, we’d like to introduce our guest designer and share her answers to our questionnaire. Hi! My name is Irit, I live in beautiful Austria with my husband and two daughters. I fell in love with scrapbooking back in 2011, and have been obsessed ever since with all things paper and mixed media.

I’m at my best in the mornings, all caffeine fueled and ready to go! 2. Share your current top 5 favorite songs/music groups with us.

Valentine Inspiration with a VIDEO!

Valentine Inspiration with a VIDEO!

Hello lovelies! We have some wonderful Valentine inspiration in store for you today! The February kits are full of so many fun goodies! Alissa made these beautiful cards with her kits… And Suzanna made this gorgeous layout! And I had an amazing time putting together my annual “My Loves” mini album! Every year, in February, I put together a mini album of my little family and write love letters to them. These books are so fun to create, as well as to look back on! As you can see… I haven’t written the letters yet, but will do so throughout the month. It’s a lovely way to reflect upon the character and blessing of each one of them! And here is a little video of my process… x I had more fun putting this together! Thanks for stopping by today! See you...
February Sketch Challenge!

February Sketch Challenge!

Hello All and happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend! I cannot believe how quickly this year is already flying by. It’s already February and today is Groundhog Day. I’m hoping he doesn’t see his shadow. We’ve had a mild winter here, but I really want spring to be right around the corner! This month’s sketch was another fun one! And, it’s based on this awesome layout by Ashli in her October gallery. First up is Suzanna I love how Suzanna kept it close to the sketch and made it her own with the awesome polka dot texture in the white space on the middle right of the page. Next up is Ashli I love the layers and the photos at the top of the page. So, so cool! Next up is Lisa Lisa stuck to the line of photos at the top of the sketch, too. I love how Lisa always has knack of adding lots of goodies for you eyes, but doesn’t overwhelm the page or make it look too busy. Love it, Lisa! Last up is me. I stuck close to the sketch, too. I included 2 larger photos, instead of the line of 3 at the top. I added the title to one of my tags. So, if you play along with this sketch challenge, you could win a gift certificate to the Cocoa Daisy Boutique. Be sure to load your images to the Member Gallery and link us up in the comment section below for your chance to win some Daisy Cash! A random winner will be announced on here on the blog...
Feb DaisyDori setup

Feb DaisyDori setup

  I’ve been anxiously waiting for February to arrive! I am so in love with this DaisyDori and all the amazing colors for this month. I like to take a little time before the month starts to setup some of my insert. The pages are already decorated so beautifully you really don’t need to do anything, but I like to play with some of the goodies that come in the kit. It helps me get a feel for what I have for the month and gets some of the pages prepped and ready to go when I get busy during the month. First thing I always do is decorate the cover! I used items from my planner kit, the planner add on, and the Valentine add on. I keep a little bowl on my desk with all of my goodies for the month so they are easy to reach for! I love that they all coordinate with the DaisyDori insert so you don’t even have to think about it, you can just create! I used this adorable “XO” piece on the monthly portion to indicate when Valentine’s Day is and then stamped a few hearts in the corners. I probably squealed out loud when I saw this Simon stamp set! I love him! I tried to just stamp him whenever he would fit so he’ll make an appearance throughout my insert For the weekly view I prepped my pages with some of the washi tape that came in the kit and these adorable numbers! It was quick and easy! My other favorite stamp besides Simon is this adorable lined...
