Dream Big Layout with the Belle Kits


Hello scrappy friends! Cathi back again with another layout with a ballet theme of my daughter and er two friends while they were up in the big city in Dublin (Ireland) preparing for their vocational ballet exam! It is a mirror selfie, but such fun I had to scrapbook the day!  This layout is using the gorgeous Belle Kits. featuring the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection. This base paper is a gorgeous watercolour in the collection called Mariposa.


Here you can see lots of different goodies from the kits!  The date stamp, button flair, cardstock "memories" sticker, flower, film strip and doily epherma are all from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). The flowers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the chipboard butterfly is from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).



Here you can see several papers from the TSK layered under the photo, along with a sparkly enamel dot from the BPK.


Here you can see the gorgeous big rubber tag charm from the BPK as well as the cardstock word stickers from the PLK. I added in a bit of my own journaling about the day.

I really love how this layout turned out, a beautiful photo and beautiful papers and embellishments to compliment it. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects!

"US" layout - with Lisa

Hi there, Lisa here today - sharing a layout.

I have scrapped a very rare photo of my husband & I, neither of us like to be in front of the camera. This photo was taken in Kiama N.S.W. - one of our most favourite places.
As I was typing this blog post I realised that this post goes up on our 21st Wedding Anniversary! I can't believe its been that long - where have all the years gone?


I used all the gorgeous "Cocoa Vanilla Studio" - "Wild at Heart" collection that is in the "Belle" kits.


Here is a close up angled shot so you can see some of the layering.
I used the gorgeous vellum as a base on the white card stock & used some of the cut a parts to create a feature in the design.



Some more close ups...I used lots of the goodies from the kit, chipboard stickers, doily, flair, ephemera & rubber pieces.



I hope you have enjoyed my share today, thanks for stopping by.
Make sure you check out our great kits & other items in the shop.

Beautiful You Layout with the Belle Kits


Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again with a layout this week!  I absolutely love the Wild at Heart collection by Cocoa Vanilla that the Belle kits are filled with, so beautiful!! I chose a very mixed media paper for my base for this one, a paper called Artisan which is in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  My daughter recently had one of her vocational ballet exams up in Dublin and her friend snapped this photo on her phone, I think it looks great! I am sure she would point out all her technical faults in her jump, but heck I just see my happy gorgeous girl looking elegant!


In this close up you can see where I have used some of the Peach Kaisermist and mixed it in with some of my modeling paste and used the hearts stencil in the Colour Kit (TCK) to add some texture to the background.  I have used a wreath from the chipboard stickers in the TSK along with the wooden pieces which are also in the main kit.  The rubber embellies, sparkly enamel dots, and flowers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


In this close up you can see more of the chipboard wreath I used from the TSK as well as the ticket and cardstock sticker "perfect" from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).  I've also tucked in a bit of paper from the TSK as a layer behind the photo.



In my final photo you can see where I have brushed on some of the gold acrylic paint from the TCK to tone in with the paper. The flower ephemera can be found in the PLK, the flowers and enamel dots come from the BPK.  The wood piece and chipboard "you" are both from the TSK.

I really love how this layout turned out, a beautiful photo and beautiful papers and embellishments to compliment it. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

Traveller's Notebook spread with Lisa

Hi there
Lisa here today sharing a spread I have done in my Traveller's Notebook - using the "Belle" kits.


You may have seen I have scrapped this photo on a 12x12 layout previously - but I love it & was happy to scrap it again! It's a selfie taken by my daughter & her bestie using a snap chat filter. 

I like to think of my TN as a mini scrapbook or portable memory keeper, I really enjoy creating in it.


Some close ups...
This is the first time I cut in to the gorgeous Navy floral vellum from "Cocoa Vanilla Studio" oh was it hard to do lol....its sooooo pretty! 


The tiny word stickers from the sticker sheet are a perfect element to create a type of journalling, whilst still keeping it clean & simple.


A frame to outline the photo & a flair to finish it off.



Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed my share.

'beautiful heart' - Lydia

Hello, hello Scrappery friends. Lydia back to share another layout using the 'Belle' kits. So I have been a little MIA lately due to the amount of school assignments but I am nearly over that hurdle of mid term assessment so I will have some time to scrap as I haven't scrapbooked in over 2-3 weeks.

I do hope you all have a lovely scrapping time last weekend on Inter National Scrapbooking Day/Weekend. And I hope that this weekend all of those precious mums are having a lovely Mothers Day today.

Here is my layout this week using the 'Belle' kits.


Have I mentioned how much I love these kits? These colours just sing to me. I love how this layout features the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Oh My Heart" chipboard frames. I also love all the dimension on this layout too.

For the title I used one of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio chipboard stickers and a wood veneer.


 
And as well as the feature of all the frames I added a few embellishment clutters using the ephemera pack. And of course to finish the clusters I used some of the gorgeous glittery Cocoa Vanilla Studio enamel dots. 
   
 
 
I also added my photo behind the beautiful floral frame to make it stand out on the page. I also backed it with one of the gorgeous and delicate doilies. I did add some ephemera around the photo too with some more enamel dots.
 
 
 
I hope you all like this layout and I hop on this Mothers Day you are able to have some scrapping time.
 
Have a lovely day.

Cards with the Gorgeous Belle Kits by Cathi


Hello crafty friends!! Cathi back again this week with a set of three cards using the gorgeous Belle kits!  The kits always have a gorgeous mix of journaling cards and embellishments to make beautiful cards and this kit is no different.


The first card I am showing is using the beautiful Double Dot paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  I have fussy cut some gorgeous butterflies from the Mariposa paper also in the TSK.  The hello is from the chipboard stickers found in the TSK and the flowers and ephemera are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).  The sweet heart word sticker is from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).


For my second card  I have used a journal card that say "Bloom where you are planted" for my main sentiment. This comes from the PLK.  The base paper is the beautiful Memento sheet from the TSK and the butterfly is fussy cut from the Mariposa sheet in the same kit. I have added a doily, some flowers and some sparkly enamel dots, all found in the BPK.

For my final card I have used the same Double Dot paper from the TSK. I have added a gorgeous butterfly die cut,flowers and ephemra frame from the BPK. The cardstock sticker "my darling" and the flair come from the PLK and the chipboard heart from the TSK.

I love the clean and simple graphic quality to cards using this gorgeous collection. I hope you have enjoyed having a peek at these cards, and next week I hope to share a layout with you.

"Enjoy the little things" Layout with Lisa

Hey there
Lisa here today sharing a layout using the "Belle"kits - which feature the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Wild at Heart" collection.


Yes, I know it's the 3rd cut file layout I have done in a row!
I am in love with them in the moment - luckily the rest of the Creative Team are mixing things up.

I just love how it requires only a little bit of patterned paper to create a striking background.
Once I adhered all the patterned paper to the back of the hearts I propped it all up on foam tape to give it some dimension.


Here are some close ups.
I chose the softer pastel repetitive patterns - as they seem to work best for me when backing a cut file. This way it doesn't really matter which way is the right way up.


I used lots of the tiny word stickers from the sticker sheet to add something more to the layout.


I also added some chipboard pieces & some sequins.

I hope you've enjoyed my share today.

Art Journaling with my Belle Kits


Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again with another art journal/planner spread using the gorgeous Belle kits!  Our challenge this week was a mixed media girl face! As I am still building up my stash of paints and other media I used my watercolors for this and added lots of goodies from the Belle kits.


In this close up you can see several goodies from the kits, the gorgeous flower in her hair is from the Bits and Pieces kit (BPK).  The rubber charm "gorgeous" is also in the BPK. In the background you can see where I have smudged on some gold paint from the Color Kit (TCK) as well as using the heart stencil and peach Kaisermist. The text words are from the cardstock stickers found in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) along with the arrow stamp.



Here you can see the rest of the girl, another die cut ephemera piece from the BPK and word stickers from the PLK.  The butterfly has been fussy cut from a paper in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).


On the planner side of the spread I had fun with watercolor and doodling and I added the colorful number stickers from the PLK to add the dates.  I've added tons of ephemera from the BPK, some more fussy cut butterflies from the TSK and cardstock word stickers and labels, again from the PLK.


I really enjoy working on this art journal planner and it has been fun to do a spread with the different kits! I have done some planner decor, some art journaling and I have some layouts and cards to come. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

"Sweet Heart" Layout with Lisa

Hi there
Lisa here today to share a layout I have created using the gorgeous "Belle" kits - which feature the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla collection "Wild at Heart"


As you can see I have used a cut file again this week. I have got my Silhouette Cameo plugged in & easily accessible - which means I am actually using it!

Its a great way to get impact on a layout & it uses minimal paper - which makes your kit go further.
The photo is of my daughter - it was taken a few years ago, I love that it is a natural shot.


Here is an angled close up - so you can get a better look.

After backing the die cut flowers & mounting the floral wreath on foam tape - I built on it by adding some extra floral ephemera & flowers from the kit.


Some close ups...showing the Wood Veneer elements.


I'm usually not a fan of rubber charms - but these ones are a lot thinner & beautiful quality!


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed my share. You can check out the kits & other thongs we have in store here.

"happy day" - Lydia

Good morning lovely people, Lydia back and  I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend an getting some creative time in there somewhere. I am not quite sure if I will get creative as I have a pile of school assignments to get done. So I am back to share my first layout using the new "Belle" kits. I am so excited about these kits as they are full of the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Wild At Heart' collection.

Here is my fist layout using the new "Belle" kits.


I did a centre design going down the page. So I knew I would have to add a little cluster somewhere off to the side. So at the top left corner I added some of the ephemera arrows, a bitty bloom and of course some enamel dots.


I did add some stamping but unfortunately you are unable to see it in these photos. I used the gorgeous mini KaiserCraft floral stamp that come in the TCK. So behind my photo I added some layers of the patterned paper and also some of the speciality vellum too.


As for embellishments I used the beautiful floral pieces from the ephemera pack and also added some Circut die cutter leaves from my stash from cardstock.

 
And to the right side of the photo I also a few other embellishments. I used a few more bitty blooms, a cardstock ephemera arrow and one of the fun rubber embellishments. And of course to finish some more enamel dots.
 
 
For the title I used one of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio wood veneer words and some of the Thickers that came in the kits. I also finished the page with some splatters using the KaiserCraft 'Peach' mist that came in the TCK.
 
So I hope you like this layout and grab some inspiration to create some layouts using your 'Belle' kits.
Have a great day.

The Gorgeous Belle Kit in my Planner!


One of my favorite things to do with a new kit is decorate my planner with it and I just love making inspirational covers for all my notebooks and a folder to keep my goodies in!!


This first cover is a vellum paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection included in this kit! We don't always get vellum and I just love using it in my planner, so pretty!!  The quote is from the ephemera as well as the butterfly and the heart is from the chipboard stickers in the main kit (TSK)



This is my Foxy Fix dashboard. I used one of the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) 4 x 6 cards for my background and used a quote from the cut apart sheet in the same kit. The two wood pieces are from the TSK.


This the folder that I made for this kit, I love the gorgeous big florals in this collection and this quote from the PLK cut apart sheet is perfection.  The butterfly is fussy cut from the same sheet and the sparkly enamel dots are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


For my bullet journal notebook cover I am using the teal dotted paper from the main kit, as well as a cardstock sticker quote from the TSK, the chipboard hearts from the chipboard stickers and the buttefly from the ephermera kit in the BPK.  I added some sparkly enamel dots in a few places including the butterfly body.


My final planner cover is the slip on cover I make every kit for my Hobonichi journal. I added the quote, and butterfly from the ephemera pack, a wooden hear and some of the small flowers from the BPK.

I love the coordinated and decorated look that I get for my planner when I used the Scrappery kits!  I hope you like my projects and I thank you so much for stopping by!!
