Mosaic Layout

Thursday, 19 January 2017

Hi All

As those who know me would realise by now, one of my favourite 'techniques' is to create mosaics with either little scraps of paper or pieces of washi tape. This fun layout with a washi mosaic background was up on the D-lish blog a few weeks ago, stop past HERE to see all the details.

As you can see I've used one of my other favourite things- Metallics! Lots of gold and silver on this one. That silver foil washi tape is ah-ma-zing!

Thanks for stopping by today

Cocoa Vanilla Studio layout- Sweet Love

Tuesday, 1 November 2016

Hi All,

I'm up on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog today with this bright, patterned layout featuring some of my all time favourite papers from 4 different CVS collections. And of course a cut file from the Colour Me Happy collection because- adorable!

This layout is my new favourite, not only because of all the Cocoa Vanilla goodness but also because it features a photo of my sweet grandparents on their wedding day 55 years ago.

Check out all the details over on the blog HERE.

Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Sunday, 16 August 2015

Hi All,

Just  sharing a few layouts I had up on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog recently. I'm still totally in love with both the Hello Lovely and Made of Awesome collections but also super excited for the arrival of the new collections in the coming weeks! Stop by the blog to check out the release.

This first page was made using a fabulous cut file from The Cut Shoppe. Aren't those pineapples adorable? And super appropriate for a tropical page.
 This second page was a little different for me- a lot of watercolouring! I wanted to create a fun, bright background so used watercolours to colour the gorgeous black and white floral paper from the Hello Lovely collection.
 This final layout was a nice simple one with some white on white pattern using the negatives from another The Cut Shoppe file.
I'm up on the A Piece Of Cake Designs blog tomorrow with my first design team post so make sure you stop by and check it out!

Until next time

A layout- just because!

Monday, 29 June 2015

I've had this photo floating around for years since our wedding, my bridesmaids were all taking selfies after our hair and makeup was done so I joined in on the action. It was a super hot day and funnily enough this is possibly the best my hair and makeup looked on the day so whilst I adore my wedding photos, I still like this selfie!

Until next time

Made of Awesome Layout

Tuesday, 9 June 2015

Hi All,
I had my first layout with one of the new collections up recently on the Cocoa Vanilla Studio blog. The two new collections are absolutely fabulous, I'm so totally in love with them. The fact that I chose to scrap with the boy oriented collection, Made of Awesome, first up just goes to show how totally amazing it is, that's not normally a natural choice for me!
Head over to the blog to check out the rest of the post and close ups of the layout, and of course see all the fabulous projects with both of the new collections!
I've got my first project coming up soon with the Hello Lovely collection so be sure to keep your eye out.
Until next time x

Pocket Letter

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Hi All

Something a little different from me today. If you haven't heard of pocket letters, they are a great little way to send a fun penpal letter with some crafty little treats inside to people around the world. This was my first one, for a lovely lady in Texas. Was fun to do something different, and receiving them is super fun too! To get involved head over to

Until next time
