Journal Entry

The Cocoa Daisy February kit - Journal Entry - goes on sale to the general public on Feb 1st! It's such a pretty kit, with some bold black additions that make the wonderful colours pop!

For my first layout I used the main kit, the Jot it down and the Dear diary add ons.

I also created a DITL spread, using almost exclusively the DITL kit. I added white cardstock and some green letter stickers from the main kit.

 I used watercolours to create my title card. 


I adore the exclusive patterned papers this month! I used the dots a lot and I also created a couple of cards of my own, using the flower paper and some gesso.

Pajama time!

The January kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Pajama time! It arrived a bit late here, due to the craziness of the holidays, but I loved getting a late Christmas gift and had lots of fun playing with the kit.

I realize when seeing them together that my three layouts are quite different in colours and it's not obvious that they are created using the same kit as a base. I love all the different possibilities with the kits Christine puts together! There's also a very inspiring thread on the MB, showing examples of possible colour combinations - check it out!

The arrow is from the stitching template included in the DITL add on.

The mask that I used on my second layout comes in the main kit. I used gesso, acrylic paint, mist and glimmer glaze.

I cut the fox out from one of the papers in the patterned paper add on.

Grocery shopping with this little lady is always an adventure... :) This day she was all smiles, singing her way through the store... I used some of the stamps from the DITL kit around the edges of this layout.

No.... I didn't get the year wrong! :) For some reason I never posted my favourite layouts from 2013 a year ago, but I had a draft written and I'm thinking that it's about time I get this post up. :) So... here they are - my ten favourite layouts from 2013! :)

My 2014 favourites will be coming soon... hopefully...

My previous favourites can be found here: 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007 and 2006.
