Agnus | Project Life - Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi again :) I am going through my project life album and filling in some of the gaps where inserts were needed and have started with some of our holiday memories using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's 'Endless Summer' collection.

I love the way the soft colours from this collection work with our vibrant summer photos and wanted to emphasise this contrast by using some of the die-cut directly over one of our beach pics. 

When working backwards in my albums, I always looks for ways to speed up the process and often use a few sure proof techniques that will help to make the pockets look interesting and flow nicely without being over complicated. 

Simple paper layers and a little bit of hand stitching helps to give pockets a sense of depth, and a few clustered embellishments add an extra pop of colour. This collection has a great range of ephemera pieces and fun enamel and wooden accents that makes putting a page together a breeze. 

Printing all of the photos with a white border helps to create a unified look to the page, and a little bit of gold foiled vellum adds more interest. 

I mirrored the photo placement in the large pockets on the reverse side of the page and often do this to make my pages feel balanced. 

Varying the textures of the embellishments used in my clusters also helps to give each pocket more interest and the puffy stickers worked well with both the cards and photos.

Using a bit of dimensional tape helps to define the paper layers and allows accent pieces to be tucked between them.
