Scrapbook Layout + process video using Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Free Spirit" collection

Hi Scrap Friends

Happy leap year day! It's Louise here of Timeless Craft Mumma
It's a pleasure to bring you a layout today using the
"Free Spirit" collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio

So many pretty papers and embellishments to chose from.

My layout "I heart you"

In case you haven't visited my blog before, I'm surrounded by boys. But when I saw this collection I fell in love with the beautiful colours and patterns. So, while my main scrapping inspiration are my boys I'm conscious of scrapping myself so that they will have a memories of me!

With that in mind, I created a layout celebrating my Mum with a picture we took on her birthday (New years day).

If you'd like to see how I completed this layout, here's a process video.

I'm so happy with the final result of this layout and love how it came together so easily.

Thanks for visiting.

A Big Bear Hug

Hello there!  Ann here today with a friendly hug - a paper hug that is!

I have used the MFT stamp set 'Happy Pandas' and some pattern paper to create this very straightforward but positive card.

  • Cut a piece of pattern paper slightly smaller than your card front - I used paper from Echo Park's I Love Sunshine 6 x 6' paper pad.
  • Cut a circle from white cardstock, plus another from pattern paper, which is cut in half.  Adhere pattern paper to the bottom half of the circle.  Sponge clouds in the top half of the circle with broken china Distress Ink.
  • Stamp and colour (this involves only a slight shading of grey and some pink cheeks!) two pandas, and fussy cut out.
  • Adhere the circle to the pattern paper mount, and position the bears where you wish them to be.  They can be popped up with foam squares.
  • Stamp a sentiment - mine is from this stamp set - and trim to a banner shape and adhere across the middle of the circle.

That's all there is to this simple card, which I think packs a punch when it comes to giving a lift to the recipient!

I do hope you give this stamp set a try - it is so sweet, and there is so much you can do with it.  I'll be back later with another card I have made with this cutie!

Thanks so much for visiting, and happy crafting!
