I'd Swim The Ocean Wide Just To Have You By My Side

Today saw the reveal of the gorgeous August kit at Cocoa Daisy
”Santa Fe Sunset” is a stunning array of blues and orange
Add a dash of red, loads of patterns and some embellishments and you have inspiration in a box!
I also played with the “Golden Dawn” paper add on and the embellishment kit
I have made 4 layouts (so far) and 2 cards
and lucky you… I get to show you almost all of them!
This page was made to remember something said


Isn’t this stamp cool?!?!


The “Love This” is a stamp from last month’s kit


Love being able to scrap something the girls said


This page was made to showcase a photo I took in Adelaide AND to write about how I love to travel


love all the papers that come in the kit(s)


and I LOOOOVE the exclusive Ormolu buttons that are in the main kit and the embellishment kit


and the Jillibean Soup alphas, I swoon!


This page uses yet another Instagram photo
I love that I can just pull out my phone, snap a photo, edit a little and then share


Love the blues in the kit


and loving all the different patterns
gives you so many options


Oh and the Basic Grey sticker sheet (found in the main kit) is something I used a lot


As soon as I saw the arrow stamp I knew I had to use it to make something like this


And the Cocoa Daisy “packed by” cards, I LOVE THESE, are perfect for all manner of things
and this one was perfect for a card


Really enjoyed creating with the August kit
I didn’t “stall” once and really needed the kick start back into scrapping
being that scrap time has been limited because of sick kids, work and life
thankful for the kick start!
Kit goes on sale on the 1st (US time) for non-subscribers.

Pin It Now!


  1. Cute pages. I love that she loves to read. That cracked me up this morning. Glad to see you are creating. (I am not....too much else on my plate.)

    That looks like a great kit, but I have stopped buying paper and such because, just like stationery when I was a kid, I have a hard time using pretty paper and it just fills up boxes.

  2. I love them all but the first one just gave me such a happy giggle. You are wonderful Sharmaine.

  3. Oh very crafty and scrapbooky, I love them.
