Product Spotlight: Cocoa Vanilla Love Always

Hello there! Becky here today putting the spotlight on the Love Always line from Cocoa Vanilla. I love that the sweet soft colors of this line are paired with the blacks and greys which allows for diversity in the photos that you can scrap with this line. My niece's dance photos below are the perfect example. Her costume is all pinks and tulle against a pure black background and I think that the Love Always line helps soften that black background in these photos.
 Heather used this line with wedding photos, obviously perfect. I love that she used elements from all the available embellishments packs that come with a Cocoa Vanilla line - wood veneer, die cuts, stickers, chipboard, ephemera...oh my! The use of two different cut files and all the embellished details provide a lot to look at on this layout.

Stacie did a great job of using the cut apart cards on this layout of her and her husband! I love using "project life"' type cards on my layouts too! Stacie also used one of my favorite love quotes, "Our story may not be perfect...but it's ours."

Ann used this collection for this beautiful photo of her daughter. The soft colors in the collection that include hints of blue really make Ann's photo pop! Ann used a mix of die cuts, wood veneer and ephemera to embellish her layout while still keeping the focus on her photo!

Melanie documented this great photo of her and her husband at the beach. I love her use of the puffy stickers and white space on this layout. The soft colors framed in black really make Melanie's photo stand out against the simple strips of patterned paper.

Amanda  is our resident Cocoa Vanilla expert being both an Aussie girl and a member of Cocoa Vanilla's Design Team! I absolutely loved that she used a black and white photo with this collection! Amanda's use of ephemera scattered across the layout creates interest and draws your eye to the photo! Such a great layout.

Last but not least, Melissa has created this stunning layout featuring her beautiful daughter.  I really love the cut files that Melissa used on this soft layout and anytime somebody can incorporate a tassel onto their layout I know I am going to love it!

Elodie played along using the script patterned paper as a background - this is one of my favorite patterns from this line! I love her use of die cuts and hand doodling! What a great page!

Mary-Ann's layout has me awe struck! That half heart has me so inspired! I adore this layout! I love that Mary-Ann uses a lot of busy patterned papers here yet was still able to make her photos really be the focus of the layout!
