Friends for Life

Posted by swewi on February 23, 2015

I found an older photo of Elsa and two of her besties from pre-school. One of them came to be in the same class in year one as her, but now in a different class for year two. The other one goes to a different school entirely. What I love about their friendship is that when they get together, at a play date or someone’s birthday party, is that they just pick up where they left off last time. They speak of each other as their BEST BEST friend, even if it’s months in between their catch ups.

I have this sort of relationship with many friends as an adult, but weren’t expecting it to work like this with 5-6 year olds. It warms my heart…

I felt this photo was perfect for the “Sugar & Spice” line from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. The soft colours in these papers with the gorgeous embellishments to match – and those CORK HEARTS – swoon! My title is a Silhouette Cameo cut. I’ve just coloured it in with gelatos & a water colour pen πŸ™‚

My first LO for Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Posted by swewi on February 10, 2015

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming for a visit today!

I am so thrilled about FINALLY being able to share my first ever Cocoa Vanilla Studio LO! If that blog is not on your blog roll already, it needs to be added. The DT will share inspiration pretty much every day of the week over there, and you DON’T want to miss that!

So here’s my first LO, using mainly the “Flying High” collection. I am a sucker for the blue, red & white colour combo, so it was natural to start off with those colours for me. And you know by now I am a huge fan of stickers and veneers. So this is basically my happy place πŸ™‚

For detail photos, head over to the CVS blog, here’s the LO – featuring Tova on her first ever pony ride. Something she’s been wanting to do for ages!

a dream come true

Make sure you tell your favourite scrabooking store about Cocoa Vanilla Studio , so that you can get your share of this goodness! Bye for now!

Scrappy weekend

Posted by swewi on February 8, 2015

I’ve had quiteΒ a creative weekend. Friday was a day off here in NZ, and I got to play with the new Cocoa Vanilla Studio products that arrived in the beginning of the week! Can’t show you any of that today (soon though!) but can show you another LO that I did.

I used my Hip Kit Club January kit on this LO, lots of lovely Dear Lizzy stuff in there! The mask is a cut file from The Cut Shoppe , and so is the little cloud on the page πŸ™‚
