Each collection from Cocoa Daisy is filled with beautiful pattern papers, gorgeous embellishments, pocket cards, and stickers. But a personal fan favorite is uncovering all the beautiful uplifting (and sometimes snarky) sayings and words of wisdom scattered among the kit products. In today’s post, we are highlighting the quotes and phrases from the Tranquility Collection that can be found in the stamp sets and sticker kit and among the pocket cards and die cuts.
Carol used quotes to embellish her Simple Dori spread documenting a creative challenge.
“Happy May! I recently engaged in a deep dive into the world of mixed media and am currently participating in a challenge. I knew I wanted to use the Tranquility Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit (still available in the shop!) to document my progress and reflect on lessons learned.
Starting on the simple grid background, I cut apart a piece of white card stock from the Tranquility Modern Memory Keeping Kit which I previously made a mixed media background on. Then, I adhered several torn papers from the Tranquility Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit at the bottom. I chose to split it down vertically with my trimmer so I could have a bit on both sides of the spread.
I don’t know about y’all, but quotes can be the motivating glue to keep pushing through. I used a mixture of quotes from the Tranquility Memory Keeping Stamp Set – “Grow with the Flow” and the die cuts- “celebrating fresh starts”, “Stress less, relax more” (this one I cut apart to add on my torn paper layers). I also included quotes from the rub-ons- “One day at a time one thing at a time”. This one I actually smudged, but I feel like it goes with the overall mixed media vibe. On both pages, I added more rub-ons and finished off the spread with the adorable mini puffy stickers.
Have you ever documented a creative challenge? I feel like between the quotes and traveler’s notebook project, I will persevere and hopefully have a lovely booklet of hard work, dedication, and things I learned.”
Natasha used quotes in several ways on this adorable insert for her memory planner.
The quotes in the Tranquility Collection are so beautiful and encouraging. They’re also such a great design option to use in your memory-keeping layouts. For this layout, which I have added into my Daisy Planner, I used the stamp set from the Tranquility Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and the stickers from the Tranquility Memory Keeping Sticker Kit and Tranquility Daisy Add On Sticker Kit. I used quotes in four different ways.
First, I used one of the sentiment stamps from the stamp set and did a repeated stamp pattern to create a high contrast bold element while carrying the theme of my layout.
Next, I paired a trimmed down clear quote sticker on one of the adhesive-backed die cuts to create my own DIY embellishment.
Using this similar idea, I paired a white matte sticker with another adhesive-backed label and placed it off-centered for a more distinct embellishment cluster. Lastly, I use a sticker from the Tranquility Daisy Add On Sticker Kit. as a prompt for my journaling. This is one of my go to’s as I am someone who struggles with journaling in my projects. I loved how this project came together- the products really make it so easy to create memory-keeping layouts. Make sure to check out my process video on my YouTube Channel to see how this spread came together.
