Cocoa Daisy

Sa-weet!
I got to be the guest designer at Cocoa Daisy this month!
When Tricia mentioned there would be super new My Mind's Eye & American Crafts in the kit I thought for a second that maybe she custom made this one just for me!
{of course she did not but it is a dang good kit for sure}
Wanna see what I made??
I made this one about my sweet friend Virginia.
Yall know her.
And now I have a layout about her.
:)
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned paper (My Minds Eye-pink scallop & blue strip, Pink Paislee-woodgrain, Lily Bee-blue/green), Fancy brads (Chatterbox), Pink brads (KI Memories), Alphabet stickers (American Crafts), Journaling card (Cocoa Daisy)
Everything {except the pink brads} is from the August Cocoa Daisy kit {Green Acres}.


I used this cute journaling card as a place to add the date to my layout.
{this is 1 of several custom journaling cards that come in the August kit}
I cut the frame out of the card & then saved the rest of the card for later.
{keep reading...hehe} _____________________________________________________________
I really wanted to do something fun with this cute new deer paper from American Crafts.
All I could come up with was this card.
How it is that I cannot {emphasis on the not} make anything using all the cute animal products that are so popular in scrapbooking these days (owls, deer, hedgehogs, etc etc) unless it is a page specifically about the creature.
Like for me to use an owl on a layout I would have to be scrapping a page about some owl we saw on a camping trip or something.
How do you do it people!??
So all I could come up with for this cute deer paper is an Oh Deer! card.
:)Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned paper (American Crafts-deer, Pink Paislee-woodgrain, Lily Bee-blue/green), Ribbon (May Arts), Heart punch (The Paper Studio)
Everything {except the heart punch} is from the August kit {Green Acres}.

I just had to make a card using this cuuute journaling card!
{And remember the journaling card that I cut up to put on that layout of Virg & I?? Well I punched this heart out of what I had left. Leave no scrap unused!}

Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned paper (Basic Grey, My Minds Eye-pink scallops), Ribbon (May Arts), Journaling card (Cocoa Daisy), Heart punch (The Paper Studio)
Everything {except the heart punch} is from the August Cocoa Daisy kit {Green Acres}.

And last, but not least, a little layout about my "cousin" Deanna.

I am pretty sure many of you know her too.
But did you know that we are related??
OK, so we aren't blood related.
We are cousins-in-law.
But that is close enough!
{especially in the South, you know}
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Patterned paper (American Crafts-flowers, Pink Paislee-woodgrain, My Minds Eye-pink scallop, Lily Bee-green/blue), Alphabet stickers (American Crafts), Ribbon (May Arts ), Custom journaling cards (Cocoa Daisy), Brads (KI Memories)
Everything {except the brads} is from the August Cocoa Daisy kit {Green Acres).


That's all I've got!
But check out what the rest of the design team did with this kit here.
I'm telling you...this is good stuff!!

What a cute kit! Love what you did with it all! Although, I think the bountiful layout could really use something. Maybe a pear?
