Scrapping Summer Sunshine-Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi there, Sheena here again.

Originally I had something totally different planned for this post but following on from last month, I couldn’t stop playing with my Cocoa Vanilla Studio supplies  & even added some extras from the Hello Sunshine range to my stash. I love how the ranges blend so easily with other.

I’ve continued to work in the 9×12 inch style again this month as I’m still enjoying its size. I plan to cut down some of my 12×12 page protectors with the Fuse tool so I can pop these in my regular album.

Happy Days.


I’ve used Hello Sunshine products on this page, firstly the Solar Flare paper which I cut down to 9x12in. Then I hand sewed down each ray before cutting between some rays, distressing the edges & curling them up.


The title literally fell out of the ephemera die cut set. All the words, clouds & sun are in there. I positioned the words & machine sewed them down. Then layered my photo up with tissue paper & a frame & added a few embellishments to finish.


Perfect Day.


Again I’ve used a Hello Sunshine paper, Sunny Spot, as my background. I added some Heidi Swapp colour shine using the packaging technique to this then added some Heidi Swapp teal texture paste through a mask to add water drops.


I added lots of layers behind the photo and cut apart card including papers from both the Hello Sunshine & Life is Beautiful ranges. I added a cluster to the lower right side to hold my title & shortened a wood veneer to finish it off.


Now the weather has improved, why not scrap your summer photos using these Cocoa Vanilla Studio ranges full of summer sunshine.
