Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Sweet Memories

Do you enjoying stitching on your layouts? I do! And these days, I enjoy using cut files as my stitching templates. For my latest layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio, I did exactly just that, and here’s the result:

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Peekaboo! Good Morning…

Recently I found myself trying to sort out the photos taken in the early months of each of my children’s lives. I was richly rewarded with photos that I had forgotten about and I decided to scrap some of those that I really liked. The following is one that the hubs took, one that brought back loads of wonderful memories:

You can learn more about the story behind this photo and how I created this page on Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s blog today. I am challenging myself to continue going through my photo archives and perhaps you would like to join me in doing so as well. Who knows what treasures and memories you will unearth?

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Today You Are Three

In our home, April and May are birthday months. My little boy turned three at the end of April and naturally, I have to create a page to go into his album to remember him at this age.

This page is special because it was created not only with Cocoa Vanilla Studio products, but also with amazing products from Faber-Castell. All the details can be found on CVS’ blog. Do head over, where I share how I created my background for this page. You need to lay your hands on some gelatos as well to have some fun with colours!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Six

Tell me I am not dreaming. At the end of May, this month, my eldest kid, my darling daughter will be six. SIX! My, really? I remember those early days of being a new mummy, and those days were really tough. How has it been that six years have past? I created the following, filled with all the things my lively, sparky six year old loves:

With that, I have to say I can’t wait to have plenty more good years ahead with this precious blessing of mine. Thanks for sharing my joy!

Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Lefties

Have you seen the latest collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio – Colour Me Happy? This new collection is so fun and holds so much possibilities, especially since you can actually colour it in, if you wish to. Here’s a page a created using it:

Lefties.jpgI had so much fun with this one, from trying to create a quilt-like effect, to adding colours using distress inks. Do head over to Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s blog for all the details!
