Cocoa Daisy Layouts…

Jun 1, 2009

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.
