Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Make A Wish: FOUR

Hi Everyone!
Welcome back for more birthday inspiration with the gorgeous new Cocoa Vanilla Studio collection;


Today I am sharing a very sweet layout about my Mister A for Awesome's recent birthday - so cute!
Make A Wish is perfect for birthdays and celebrations! Here's my birthday boy layout,
I know, isn't he just the cutest?! He was so pleased with himself, " I a big boy now" Naww! How could I not scrap this milestone moment! And what better collection to scrapbook it with!
I love the very cool blue tones in Make A Wish.  The pattern paper CV-MW004 LOOT BAG (with the cross pattern) is ideal for a masculine layout. I cut this paper into 2 inch squares and arranged the squares diagonally across my white cardstock base (in a checkerboard design), with my precious photograph in the center. As it's a boy layout, I then added lots of stunning blue embellishments, however, this made my layout a little too crisp. So, to create more warmth & balance, I teamed up the blues with the wood look pattern paper, CV-MW001 FRESH CUT and Wood Veneers. Perfect!
Let's take a closer look.....
Sooooooo many fabulous embellishments! Puffy StickersChipboard Accent StickersEnamel Dots (sparkles)Vellum Accents & divine Die Cut Ephemera!
Let's not forget those Wood Veneers either! STUNNING! I mean, check out the stars and subtitles.....
The chipboard frame with the veneer look is perfect for layering my photo onto, and take a look at that gorgeous cluster of embellishments - THAT cake is just adorable!!!
I have also used those fabulous Alphabet Stickers to create my title with! Awesome! And despite my initial reservations about being able to use them on a boy page, I am totally LOVING the glitter Sparkles - Enamel Dots! So much fun!!!
You'll also note that I have used lots of directional arrows leading you into my sweet photo too. Gently encouraging the eye into what I value most about my layout ;)
Here's another glimpse at those fabulous Enamel Dots and Puffy Stickers.....
Yep. Loving it!!!
Let's not forget that mini cluster in the top of my page though - Hey, it's FUN!!!
Make A Wish is just making all of my scrapbook wishes come true! It's so awesome to create with!!

  1. Lovely inspirational card ideas! Mind blowing birthday party was thrown by my brother for his pretty princess. Love my niece a lot and really everyone complimented the pink d├ęcor done at venue NYC with sparkling stars. Props and games were used to make the atmosphere entertaining for kids. Food and drinks were of common choice.
