This week many of you will be receiving this delicious Cocoa Daisy July kit.. and when you open your packs you’ll be in for a lot of fun because the goodies look so much better in person!
Here are some of the creations I’ve made with the kit and add-ons. I’ve had so much fun playing with the patterned papers that I’ve unintentionally sidestepped the cardstock usage for many of these layouts. Too excited to get into the patterned paper lusciousness..
This one is a layout about my daughter and me… Pulling the green ribbon will reveal a tag with some hidden journaling..
Another patterned paper I really love is this ‘Anna Griffin Harlequin Sewn Paper’ that I’ve used as the base of this layout (found in the patterned paper add-on) I love the texture of this layout and how much fun it is to add layers on top of it.
Isn’t that lace ribbon luscious? I added some diamonds (not in the kit) to this one to add a bit of bling to the layout. The photo (5″x7″)was printed with the journaling, “Lara, I Love You”. For added dimension, I used the delicious flowers from the Ferris Wheel add-on, and the Crate Paper Pink Plum chipboard, also from this add-on. I love layouts with loads of different textures, visually and physically. The chipboard alphas also add to the fun feel of the page.
I love how the tags from this Merry-Go-Round add-on lends itself to a clean, fun layout. For this one, I cut out the photos to fit perfectly into the centre of the tags. The white Basic Grey cardstock alphas are from a previous kit!
Here it is in close up:
This final layout is another about Lara, called ‘This Little girl’.. I grabbed a few elements from the Tunnel of Love add-on to create this fun cluster of flowers. I also enjoyed using a butterfly mask for the misted background using the luscious Maya Mist in the Merry-Go-Round add-on to play. The orange color really stands out giving my background my own personal touch. I had fun pairing the brads with the orange and polka-dotted flowers to use on different parts of the layout!
I hope you’ve enjoyed having a quick look through these fun layouts, and that they inspire you to create with your July Kit! The kit feels so jam-packed that even after these four layouts, I have a ton of stuff left for which I can create more! Can’t wait to get back to it.
Thanks for looking everyone!
