CELEBRATE YOU | MAKE A WISH | GWEN WRUCK

Hello again Creative Friends,



I have a pretty layout to share with you today using the divine Make a Wish collection. It features Miss C a few years back dressed up for a school book parade.  She went as Alice in Wonderland, with the pink bunny doubling as the "white rabbit".





This has to be one of my favourite collections of all the Cocoa Vanilla lines... I love how clean and fresh it is, the pinks and florals and THAT blue/green **totally swoon worthy**.  It is a perfect collection for documenting birthdays with lots of Happy Birthday elements, but I love it for every day scrapbooking, like this layout, which just celebrates my sweet little girl.



The design for the page started with the Cocoa Vanilla cut file, this one is from the Colour Me Happy collection - you can grab it here.  I started by cutting it out on plain white card stock from my stash and then added some colour using some mists.  I've use a blue shade and a pink/gold shade applied un-evenly.






Once I was happy with the colour in my die cut, I decided on its position on the page.  Once that was locked in, I knew where to place the coloured mist in the background.  I've done this using the packaging technique in a very pale pink, allowed it to dry and then added blue and pink splatters.  I wanted this to have a confetti-like feel.. to go with my title "Celebrate You".




Next, I went about fussy cutting out the flowers in 'Fresh Cut' paper, this is one of my most favourites... such pretty florals begging to be fussy cut!





I now was able to position the cut file, my photo and the flowers.  Next, I went about creating a verticle line from top to the bottom of my page starting with the 'Celebrate You' element I knew I wanted to use as my title.







I went throught the Chipboard Accent Stickers, Die Cut Ephemera pack and the Accessory Stickers looking for elements to add to my page.  I wanted a variety of shapes, sizes and lenghts for interest.  Once these were all choosen and in position, I added my finishing touches, some stars and a flair badge.





This really is such a pretty collection and I always love creating with it.  It is also the collection I am using for my upcoming class at the Brisbane Scrapbook & Papercraft Expo coming up on June 9th - 11th.  The kit for this class is so pretty, I know you will love it!  Below is a sneak peak of one of the layouts we will create together in the class.






Class bookings are open now and can be made online here on the 2017 time table.
