The Sweet Life indeed. A new month and year almost upon us and a new Cocoa Daisy Kit along with it. I'm excited to start a new year with them and have really enjoyed the journey so far.
This kit is very bright and cheery. It has so many new releases in it that it was really exciting to work with.
Merry & Bright | Almost as soon as Christmas was over I scrapped this picture of Lakshman. What? It was so cute. Had to be done. I love this bright confetti paper from the main kit. It paired beautifully with the gold foil thickers. I splashed some hexagon stickers across the top and bottom as well.
Sweet Life | Another sweet Lakshman page. I paired one neutral with a large design and one pink patterned paper with a small design for the background. It's one way to get two different patterns to work with each other. I layered these die cut tags under the photo. I also cut one of my favorite journaling cards up and made it into a tag as well. I love this embellishment set, it is glittery and adds tons of dimension to the page.
We Love Picnics | I had a lot of fun with hand cut letters here. Again I was looking for a little bit of extra dimension to make them really pop off the page. I used mini glue dots and I think they really helped. Putting the letters on top of textured white cardstock also helped too. Mixing patterns is so easy with the main kit. There is no way to go wrong. I cut the No. 1 from a journaling card as well. I cut the page in half with patterned paper. Not a usual design strategy for me as I tend to work in thirds but I love the focus and attention it draws to my photo.
Lakshman and Nandini | Taking a pocket page outside of the pocket, and I love it! I love playing around with grids on layouts and this is just the latest installment of that. I checkerboarded journaling cards across the page. I added a little embellishment to every blank space, leaving space for stamping and journaling. I included a lot of little stories about these two and their relationship.
Afterwards I added a few small 2x2 black and white photos of the two of them jumping on the bed together. I love their sweet relationship and seeing it deepen.
