Cocoa Daisy July 2015 Kit "Bistro"

Reveal time again at Cocoa Daisy
And July's kit is "Bistro".
I have four layouts to share with you
And they have become some of my favourites.

Really enjoying the new "Buy Your Own Add On" option.
It means you can add embellishments
That you know will just work with the kits.

IMG_8010

Even the new "Customer Appreciation" card
Is perfectly perfect for creating with

IMG_8011

Well, perfect for the story I had in mind for this page.

IMG_8013

Did I say perfect?
I meant PERFECT!

The printables for July were also perfect for story telling.

And OH MY!!
The new Crate Paper and Shimelle products…
LOVE!

IMG_8029

And I should mention the Cocoa Daisy number stamp.
It's exclusive and it is in the store.
LOVE IT!

IMG_8030

The number stamp was a great way
To add some random numbers to clouds.
Because we all need to add random numbers to clouds!!

Really love that I was able to finally scrap this photo.

IMG_8041

It's one of my favourites.

IMG_8042

The Day In The Life kit is absolutely wonderful
And I have used a stack of the cards this month,
If you look carefully there is at least one on each layout.

IMG_8043

The exclusive Cocoa Daisy papers are awesome again this month.
Perfectly matched to the rest of the kit, yet again.

Did I mention the DITL cards?

IMG_8064

Loved the colour options
(I say that every month)
The blues and yellows
The reds and greens
LOVE

IMG_8065

Had fun with some of the Crate Paper frames

IMG_8066

Teaming them with other embellishments from the kits.

IMG_8067

Loving the layers.

Cocoa Daisy June 2015 Kit "Let's Go"

I know I probably say it every month
But the colour versatility,
Of each Cocoa Daisy kit,
Simply blows me away every month.
The June kit was no exception.

IMG_7928

I pulled out some red options
And created this page,
Of our latest birthday girl.

IMG_7929

I used a photo of when she was three

IMG_7930

And journaling straight from the Instagram post
I had typed with the photo.

IMG_7931

I also cut the feathers from one of the Day In The Life Cards.

For the next page I pulled out some blue options.

IMG_7945

Cut out the cute pirate from an October Afternoon die cut.

IMG_7946

I coloured the grey alpha stickers
With some blue nail polish
And then swiped the bottom halves with a white sharpie pen.

IMG_7953

Then I had some alphas that were perfect for this page.

IMG_7952

Love that Cocoa Daisy now has a "Build Your Own Add On" option.
Means you can add the embellishments you will use
And leave out the ones you won't.

SharmaineKruijver_CocoaDaisyJune15_Waterboy

My last page was totally inspired by one of those options.
A sticker sheet from Basic Grey.

IMG_7968

I used the triangle stickers as the jump off point for my page,
Hand cutting some more from papers in the main kit.
I also cut one of the free printables and added that to my page.

IMG_7965

I added some more triangles

IMG_7970

And tried to add some depth with other interesting things.

IMG_7973

The whole triangle design thing scared me
But I'm happy I dived in and gave it a go.
Because that photo was perfect for cutting up!

Jot Magazine Issue 10 - "Roadtrip"

Jot Magazine Issue 10 has a travel section.

IMG_7632

Lots of inspiration for capturing memories

IMG_7633

Of long trips or short.

IMG_7634

I documented thoughts of both.

IMG_7636

I love exploring with this lot.

SharmaineKruijver_JotMagazine10_Roadtrip

I think that, when I grow up,
I want to be an explorer.

Jot Magazine Issue 10 - "The Best Name For A Zebra"

I love jotting down things I've overheard during the day.
A silly conversation.
A quote of the day.
Just things people say.
In Issue 10, of Jot Magazine,
There is a section of just such things.

IMG_7609

I think I could write a whole series of books
Full of the funny things our kids have said.

IMG_7610

These moments are why I scrapbook.
Capturing these words before they are gone and forgotten.

IMG_7612

They are funny.
But they are also memories.

IMG_7615

And that is just one of the reasons I think scrapbooking is important.
Sometimes we need to remember.

IMG_7614

One day these memories will go from being funny things said
To something rather amazing.

SharmaineKruijver_JotMagazine10_BestNameForAZebra

So…
What is the best name for a zebra?

Jot Magazine Issue 10 - "Together"

Issue 10 of Jot Magazine celebrates Jot's 2nd birthday.
In it you will find a section all about parties.

IMG_7590

I created a page celebrating family, friends and Christmas.

IMG_7591

We had the absolute best time at Grandma's house
And this page documents the fun we had.

IMG_7592

Think you'll see the fun captured.
