Hello, friends! One of the best parts about planning with Cocoa Daisy is the ability to make your planner pages super fun and fully functional for your everyday needs. Today, our Creative Team shares how...
Hello, friends! Everything is peachy with the Peach Ridge Collection, and we are here for it! We have gorgeous peach patterns on the papers, stamps, stickers, washi, sticky notes, and even papers clips. One of my favorite peachy products is the "Everything's Gonna Be Just Peachy" pocket card. Our Creative Team loves the peaches in this collection and they are excited to share their peachy pages with you. Natasha used the peach pattern to tie a two-page spread together.
"As we all know the Cocoa Daisy kits always have such beautiful artwork that is designed around a theme for each month. The theme is echoed throughout the products from the color palette to quotes and phrases that are scattered throughout the collections. For the Peach Ridge Collection, I fully embraced the ‚Äúeverything is peachy‚Äù vibe.
For this project, I created an insert to go inside of my Cocoa Daisy Daisy Planner which I use for my weekly memory keeping.
Utilizing a collection‚Äôs theme from the color to artwork reflected in the product is a great way to tie in a two-page layout. To create a cohesive look, I have repeated the peach patterned paper on both sides as well as brought the mixed media effects to both sides to allow your eye to travel throughout the layout. Repeating colors, for this example peach, and textures like the chipboard easily tie the project together.
Often I think we can steer away from a two-page layout but I encourage you to leverage the collection‚Äôs theme the next time you want to give a multi-page layout a try!"
April has a great mix of color, pattern, and embellishment in this memory-keeping spread.
"Not going to lie, I had a hard time with this one. Sometimes, the page does not come together as I had hoped and I have to scrap everything, literally, and start over. Attempt number two proved to be the winner.
I started with stamping the peach ‚Äútoday‚Äù hexagon repeatedly in the background. From there, I layered the brown card stock with my photo, trimmed, and distressed. I wanted to incorporate journaling but did not want to ruin the clean look of the page.
I made an invisible washi tape spine, placing the bottom journal card from the Peach Ridge Modern Memory Keeping Kit over half the washi and then the backing of the photo on the other half of the same washi tape. I attached the pocket card and then adhered the photo on top, making a flip card for the journaling. I splotched some blue ink to add some color, layered sticky notes onto the page with the hexagon stamps, and finished it all off with a couple of embellishments and alphas from the Modern Memory Keeping Kit.
It was not the page I started out to make but I love the final result, especially the way it layers with my other pages from the month in my album."
Casie loved using the peach theme inside her gratitude journal.
"When I saw the die-cut that said "everything is just peachy", I knew it would be the perfect jumping off point for a gratitude page. Inside my mini happy planner, I made these two pages to highlight moments of gratitude throughout the month.
The left side features the peach pattern paper from the Peach Ridge Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit as the backdrop with the wood grain paper on top. I love the contrast of the two papers in their color and texture. I added the scalloped stickers from the Peach Ridge Planner Add On Kit along the edge of the paper along with the adorable peaches in a wood barrel adhesive patch.
On the right side, I used the wood grain paper again for a background for the title. The title features the large yellow alpha stickers from the Peach Ridge Bible Journaling Sticker Kit. Gotta love the contrast in color to make the title pop! And the arrow signpost from the Bible Journaling Sticker Kit? A perfect finishing touch."
