Cocoa Daisy Fall Crop: The Craft Fair

Nov 9, 2011

Make sure this week­end is clear because it’s going to be a fun one … NOVEMBER 11- 13 Cocoa Daisy crops always pro­vide you with a ton of chal­lenges, prizes, and most impor­tant­ly laugh­ter & cama­raderie with peo­ple who “get this scrap­py thing” we all love. You do not have to use Cocoa Daisy kits or even be a sub­scriber to play along. If you already do and are that is awe­some but the won­der­ful thing about Cocoa Daisy is they wel­come every­one. You just have to be reg­is­tered on the Mes­sage Boards, espe­cial­ly if you want to par­tic­i­pate in the chats. There is a HOW TO PLAY post­ed on the Mes­sage boards. Don’t for­get to add your songs to the PLAYLIST. You can play music while you chat & have fun. The SCHEDULE...

A Blast from the Past…

Aug 25, 2011

I thought it would be fun to show you some lay­outs I cre­at­ed using Cocoa Daisy kits from around 2007. Now that Ans­ley is a senior this year I find these lay­outs even more spe­cial. She grew up way too fast. In the lay­out above I felt there was too much white space in the back­ground of Ans­ley’s pho­to so I used the end of my paint­brush and some acrylic paints to cre­ate a pol­ka dot back­ground. I like the pop of col­or the pol­ka dots cre­ate and they fill in the white space per­fect­ly. To pop the pho­to a bit more I paint­ed yel­low acrylic paint all around the edge of the pho­to cre­at­ing a bright col­ored bor­der. To fill in the white space on the pho­to above I attached clear but­tons to...

Gift Box

Jun 29, 2011

I altered this box using the Main Kit “Urban Loft” by Cocoa Daisy. I plan on plac­ing a gift card inside for a spe­cial some­one on their birth­day. After­wards they can use the box to store small items inside. Alter­ing items is one of my favorite things to do… I love turn­ing some­thing that was dis­card­ed and no longer want­ed into a new trea­sured item. That is one rea­son my clos­et looks like a hoard­er lives in my stu­dio. I can­not pass up small box­es and paper mache items. I always think, “Oh this would be awe­some to alter.” I real­ly like the flow­ers that come in the “South Loop” Add On Kit. They are pre­fect to cre­ate a lit­tle flo­ral group­ing. And you know I love the Maya Road Crys­tal Trin­ket Pins. There...
