A whole lot of scrapping...

The August kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Hemingway and it's a fab mix of things related to travelling, adventures and reading books.

We've mostly stayed at home or made shorter excursions this summer, but we did a tiny bit of travelling last week and this photo was taken on one of our little trips - to a small island on the eastern coast of Sweden. I was inspired by the pattern on Tuva's dress and cut squares out of a few of the patterned papers from the main kit. I added some gesso to the papers and to the background and also some stitching and fun details.

I also used the super cute Little birds stamp set - love them so much! - and the Elle's studio wood veneers.

The photo on the layout below was taken at the same trip and I created the background using gesso, a stencil + mist in green and blue to match the papers. I used the main kit + the Crate paper cork stickers and the enamel dots from Simple Stories.

We travelled by boat twice during our vacation and these photos are from those two short rides. The first trip took us from Sweden to Denmark and the second ride was to get to the island on the east coast. Both rides felt like an adventure for sure. :)

I used parts of a page protector to create the pockets for the sequins and I mostly used the DITL kit for this layout + the cork stickers and wood veneers mentioned above.

I also used the DITL kit to create this spread for week 29. I don't think I'll ever be creating pocket pages for every week of the year, but I do love the little glimpses of our everyday life that I manage to document like this!

I used the Little birds stamp set as well as the bird stamps from the September Planner kit and painted them with watercolours. 

The Hemingway kits are on sale for subscribers now and they go on sale for the general public on Aug 1st!

The August kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Hemingway and the full reveal takes place tonight! I've really been enjoying this kit and here are a few tiny sneaks from what I've created.

Using the DITL kit for a 12x12 layout.

There are some super cute bird stamps available this month...

I used some darker colours too... love the many options...

I also created a fourth layout and a PL spread! 

There's also a challenge up on the Cocoa Daisy blog, and we're challenging you to scrap about beverages. :) You don't have to use a Cocoa Daisy kit to play along but can use any supplies that you like, and you have until Aug 4th to upload your layout. All the info can be find in this blog post. 

My layout is about yummy mojitos and I used the July kit.
