A little over a week ago, I went through a couple of Cocoa Daisy kits I hadn't used yet, pairing the papers and embellishments with photos to create layouts. The first one started with a bold patterned paper with lots of rich color that somehow seemed to go well with photos of a new favorite coffee place in town.
(Supplies: Patterned paper by Crate Paper. Letter stickers by American Crafts. Rub-ons by Luxe. Die cuts by Girls Paperie. Stamps by TPC Studio and Elise Blaha. Ink by Autumn Leaves. Flowers by Prima. Brads by Making Memories.)
Normally, when I do a layout about coffee--and since I'm a coffee lover from way back, this happens fairly often--I go for brown as a basic foundation. This time, I went with black, just because it seemed to fit better. I also used plenty of older supplies, which I love to do. Cleaning out the stash so there's room for more new goodies!
