Cocoa Daisy Layouts…
I finally get to share the layouts I created using this months kit by Cocoa Daisy. As you can see the June Kit and the Add On Kit are very versatile. It was loads of fun playing the Daisy Divas once again.
I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to darken the Eyelet Cardstock. Traced a dinner plate to create the circle out of patterned paper, cut out leaves and butterflies from a piece of Webster’s Pages patterned paper using a craft knife, attached Maya Road green pom pom trim around the edge, created a scallop border using scallop scissors and a paper piercer, accented the horizontal strip with self adhesive pearls then used my sewing machine to add additional texture by sewing a straight stitch along the circle and horizontal strip.
I wanted this layout to have a yearbook feel so I created journaling blocks the same size as the photos and arranged them as you would in a yearbook. Then I added basic information (schools and event) about my Mom and Dad using Tiny Alphas by Making Memories. I added Maya Road Crochet Trim around the outer edge of the layout to soften the edges just a tad. I accented the flower’s button with a bow using Red & White Twine.
Tomorrow I will show you the little wall hanging I createad with left over scraps from the kit. I am also including a little tutorial on how I made the velvet flowers.
