Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed - Fun in the Sun

Hello, Karen C here with another layout using the bright & sunny Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Sunkissed collection. 

For my layout today I started with a 12"x12" sheet of white Bazzill cardstock which, after trimming 1/8 inch off of each edge, I matted onto a sheet of black cardstock.

In the centre of the layout I layered 7"x7" squares of the Sunny Days and Just Chillin papers. I also cut some strips from the Good Vibrations paper and tucked these underneath the sides of the squares. My photo was matted on black cardstock and placed on top of the layout with some 3D foam underneath to raise it up a little.

One of the Pocket Cards was attached to the layout next to the photo, with more 3D foam underneath.

Some of the gorgeous Glitter Foam Title Stickers were used for the title. I really like these foam stickers. The glitter really stays put and doesn't come off on your layout like some older glitter stickers do.

At the top and bottom of the layout I added strips of the Good Vibrations paper and some tags made from some of the Pocket Cards were used to ground clusters of embelishments.

White Twine was added to the tags and tied in bows. I then added some phrase strips and hearts from the die cut ephemera pack, Glitter Foam hearts, some Puffy Dots from Doodlebug and some stars punched from glitter card.

On the corner of the photo I stuck a clear sticker from a Me & My Big Ideas clear sticker book I had in my stash. I don't think the particular sticker book I have is now available, but there are many more similar sticker books still in the shop.

Tiny letter stickers were used to add the place name and date at the bottom of the layout and gold sequins were scattered around the layout.

To complete the layout I used a black gel pen to draw round the edges of the layout as well as the patterned papers and elements.

Thanks for looking. 
Take Care and I'll be back again soon.
