If All The World Were Apple Pie

Did I tell you I just love the October kit from Cocoa Daisy??
Well it’s true!
Farmer’s Market has lots of fabulous products and so far I have now made 3 layouts and 2 cards
So rather than bombard you with one big post
I thought I would take the time to show you each creation separately
because I have a little technique to share with each
This is my first page


Apart from the main kit I also used the ‘Canned Peaches’ and ‘Apple Pie’  addons
I used the gorgeous apple stamp, in the ‘Apple Pie’ kit
I then layered it up
I punched out the middle of a Jillibean Soup ‘Apple Cheddar’ Diecut Shape
and topped it with one of the American Crafts flair


in honour of the wonderful Emily Pitts joining the Cocoa Daisy team I hand cut my part of my title


I ruffled some pattern paper strips


and I made a journal block
using one of the pages from the Maya Road Apple Chipboard Coaster album (available in the Apple Pie Addon)
I covered it with some of the Crate pattern paper
stitched around the shape


To make my journaling stand out
I printed it out onto acetate
and then, turning the page over, I ran a white paint pen over each line of journaling
making the journaling pop against the pattern paper


Back later with another page and another technique

Pin It Now!


  1. What fab ideas you have!!
    Love the title and how you journaled. x

  2. Wow so many cool little techniques. Love all the apples and the patchwork one with the stitching.
