Cocoa Vanilla Midnight Layout Moments

Hi once again and welcome to the Anna’s blog! I am having so much fun playing with this gorgeous Midnight collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studios that I keep making things! Today’s share is another 12×12 layout, my Cocoa Vanilla Midnight Layout Moments,  where I have used the gorgeous Large Die Cut and Backing kit to build my page on top of.

And I have another process video which you can view here

With all of those very pretty pinks on the background paper already I decided to hand stitch that circle using some navy crotchet thread that matched the blues in this collection perfectly. I chose the crotchet thread instead of the usual embroidery floss as the crotchet thread is finer and I thought it lent itself better to the design.

The sewing on this project did take quiet a number of hours however, for me, the end result was well worth it! I did only stitch where I KNEW you would be seeing the stitching as I didn’t want to spend all that extra time hand sewing just to cover it up!

Once I had the main feature of this done the rest came together very easily! This collection works beautifully with some splatters of gold so, of course, I sprinkled some all across the background – any gold mist or even watered down paint would work.

Once the sprinkles were dry I stuck down my handstitched die cut using some wet glue and then I used one of the Die Cut Title pieces for my title and added in some florals and leaves from both the die cut ephemera pack and the chipboard pack.

I wanted to add a little detail to all the circular joiny parts on that die cut so I have used some of the Bella Blvd Puffy Hearts in Punch, mixing up the sizes and the shades of pink.

This Die Cut and Backing Kit made this page come together super quickly (ok, well maybe it would have been super quick if I hadn’t hand stitched!!) and I love the simplicity and the prettiness of it!

I hope I have given you some inspiration today from my Cocoa Vanilla Midnight Layout Moments and this beautiful collection, make sure you grab yourself some from the store before it is all gone!

I will be back again this week with another share and I can’t wait to show you what else I’ve been making!
