Thursday

guess what?

Meet the 2018 Cocoa Daisy team. I am SO excited to get to design with these talented ladies. This last year has been a dream, and I am so happy I get to do it for another year. 

i heart october

I am so excited to share my October projects made with the Cocoa Daisy kit. 

I made this 12x12 layout with the cute paper from Pink Paislee's Turn the Page collection. The sweet sentiments in the background were perfect for our new family pictures. I also added some splashes of water color. 



Here is a close up. Gosh I love water color! 


Here is a smaller pocket page. I love the card with the "caption" spot. I added the cute pink HELLO stickers. This kit had lots of cute succulents. 



This layout turned out to be my FAVORITE one. Those cute little birds inspired me to use the darling alpha stamps to write "Our Flock." I fussy cut the birds out of a sheet of 12x12 paper. (Also from Pink Paislee). 


Here is how I typed my journaling. Then I cut each line into strips and glued them on. 

I tattered the edges of each layer a little to add dimension. 
Here is the process video I made for this layout.





And lastly, here is a pocket page I made showing our day at the pumpkin patch. The love the mint color with the traditional orange.


Thanks for checking out my October projects! 






Monday

fall florals

The September Cocoa Daisy kit was beautiful and had me feeling all the fall feels. I adore the fall florals.
Here is a pocket page made with the pocket kit. I love that vintage camera!




This 12x12 layout was so fun to make because I got to really layer those prints. 

Here is another 12x12 page with interactive flaps. The pictures and journaling tell our September stories. 


Click below for my process video on making the flaps layout. 


I made these fall greeting cards with the rest of my paper scraps. Its amazing how many projects you can get out of a few favorite papers.

summer 2017 mini album

It's been a great summer, and I just finished my summer mini album. I have loved working on it whenever I had time this summer. 


I used a blank notebook for this. I painted the cover with water color and glued on the flowers I cut out of a paper. I added several white pages or inserts along the way with washi tape. My goal was to add lots of fun water color throughout the book. I really enjoyed adding splashes of color here and there or painting a full page. 

It ended up being 67 pages. Here are 11 of my favorite pages:















And my favorite thing to show you:

I heart typewriters


The August kit from Cocoa Daisy was my favorite so far. I LOVED all the typewriters.





I loved adding watercolor to this whimsical layout with the moon.
Here is a close up. My baby can't get enough of the moon right now. He loves going outside and finding the moon, day or night. And he squeals and says "moo, moo, moo!" So when I saw all the "I love you to the moon and back product, I knew I wanted to make a layout with Crew. I used a plate to trace the moon. There is a whole process video below: 




Here is a layout in my summer mini album. I love the paper with the waves and the cute "ADVENTURE" paper. Perfect for my Bear Lake pictures. 


This handsome guy has been "Just My Type" for 15 years now. Woot Woot


Here is another layout in my summer mini. You know me, I LOVE paper flaps. Quick video showing it better below:





And here is one more layout using pocket pages. I just love that card with the date on it.  Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
