Cocoa Vanilla Studio Sunkissed - Sweet & Sassy

Hello! Karen C here again with a final layout using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's Sunkissed collection. Among the bright zesty coloured papers in the collection, there is a gorgeous woodgrain patterned paper called Just Chillin and that paper is the base for the layout I'm sharing with you today.

I started by trimming an eighth of an inch off of each side of the Just Chillin paper and matted this on a sheet of white Bazzil cardstock. Using white thread I then machine stitched a straight stitch round the edges.

Using my Silhouette Cameo I cut the 'Heart Background' cut file by Paige Evans from smooth white cardstock and backed this with the Sunny Days and Growing Wild papers. The backed cut file was then attached to the layout with 3D foam underneath to raise it up.

My photo was matted on white cardstock and placed on top of the cut file with a white paper doilie tucked underneath. I also tucked two pocket cards underneath the photo to give a grounding for the title.

The title was cut twice, once a second sheet of the Just Chillin paper and once from black cardstock. By layering the two pieces on top of each other but slightly offset, it created a shadow effect and made the title stand out more. 

A sub title was created using letters die cut from some pink fun foam.

I embellished the layout with some of the die cut ephemera and In my stash I found a very old flair badge which was also added. I thought the words and colour of the flair were appropriate for this layout and couldn't think of when else I might use it.

The date and place were added to the bottom left corner of the layout using clear letter stickers which I stuck onto a scrap of pink paper and then cut into separate tiles.

For a finishing touch I added a few iridescent pink sequins to the layout.

This was the last layout I have created using the Sunkised collection. I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I have created and that it has inspired you to use the Sunkissed collection too.

I'll be back soon with another project and in the meantime, Take Care.
