Bistro - the July kit from Cocoa Daisy

The July kit from Cocoa Daisy is called Bistro and it's a happy and cheerful kit!

The gorgeous flower paper that I used for this first layout is from the Corner cafe patterned paper add on. I created the background using gesso and a stencil and then some mist and glimmer glaze.

This next layout was created using the DITL kit. Again, I used some gesso and mist for the background.

I enjoyed picking some of the more subtle patterns and colours from this colourful kit, for my third layout. 

It's been a loooong time since I created any pocket pages and I really enjoyed the process when using the DITL kit along with the July printables, to create this spread. I mostly kept the design very simple and I love the DITL cards.

The June kit from Cocoa Daisy... called Let's go! It's travelled-themed, but still totally useful for non-travel layout too! Non of my layouts are about travelling. :) At least not about the vacation-type of travelling.

This first one is about what an incredible year this has been! I've managed to complete a whole year of studying and I've come really far on my journey towards becoming a teacher. I tore strips of patterned paper and attached them with gel medium. I used some gesso on top of them and then added more strips, this time attaching them using the sewing machine.

And this is about my twelve years of travelling along with this not-so-little-anymore boy! Twelve years?! How did that happen? I used some gesso and mist in yellow and orange, for the background. I loved the text stamps in the main kit!

All three kids have their birthdays in April and May and Tuva came home one day and said she wanted diamonds for her birthday. Her friend had gotten diamonds and Tuva knew that her dad had bought them from the diamond store. :)

The look upon her face when she opened the pretty box her grandmother gave her, and found out that it was full of "diamonds" was just priceless. Such a happy little girl!
