Cocoa Daisy – Reveal – November 2014 “Weathervane”

Today I had a day at my scrap table.
I played with the Cocoa Daisy kits.
Reveal has happened already so I get to share my three pages with you right now.
As always, I just love the colour combinations each kit offers.
I loved these two papers and threw in the green from a Day In The Life card.
I’ve used a fun photo to create a page about a moment.

This next page was also inspired by the paper.
I love the colour of the pattern paper.
The colour is actually one of my favourite combinations, teamed with “Lagoon” blue.
The blue is what I painted the VERY COOL wood veneer with.
I used an older photo to create this page.
Added some words and viola!

Finally, this page was inspired by one of November’s file cuts.
As soon as I saw the bear I knew what I would do with it.
I had a photo that had been waiting for me to share a story.
I used my Silhouette Cameo and pens with the bear cut file.
I also used one of the November stamps, tucked in behind the photo.
I altered the Heidi Swapp alphas with some mist and they look gorgeous!

Again this month I purchased all the kits (including the Day In The Life kit) and add ons.
The papers in this month’s kits are superb!
So many favourites and so many I can’t wait to use.
And having said that…
There is so much in this kit that I still haven’t touched.
Looking forward to digging into it again soon!!

My kit has been here for a week but life has taken over and I have only one page underway.

Reveal is at 8pm EST (US time) on the 28th.

I’ll be at work so hope you have fun! Will also have my gallery fully loaded by the end of the week.
There are so many great things in the November kits.
The wood veneer and exclusives are some of my favourites!

I was lucky enough to have Denise to scrap lift.

I scrolled through her gallery

And found an older page that I loved.

IMG_5065

And used it as inspiration to create this page

IMG_5066

I used a stencil from Flutterby Designs

And stamps from Cocoa Daisy

And the page I lifted…

Thanks Denise, for the inspiration

I used a piece of Shimelle’s pattern paper as the basis for my design.

Some of the gorgeous Cocoa Daisy feather stamps and a little journaling.

So, while I struggled with the whole pattern paper thing



The mood board made this page come together quite nicely.
