This layout was one of my classes that I taught at We Create last year. (I can't believe we already started registration for the this year!)
I saw this beautiful collection from Cocoa Vanilla and the striped paper instantly caught my eye. I was overjoyed to see that there was also a package of flowers that so perfectly matched the strips. It was one of those moments where I knew exactly what I wanted to do with these products.
I used the striped paper as my background and then I used the die cut flowers to create a large cluster along the bottom. I matched the colors of the stripe to the color of the flowers so that it has this rainbow affect going across the layout.
I also cut out some cameras, hearts, and word/phrase pieces to match the colors and flowers.
At the top edge of the photo block I have some 2 x 2" photos with more of those cameras and hearts. With those pieces I also tried to match the color to the stripes to keep that theme going.
The cool thing is that Cocoa Vanilla almost always has a great stripe and a package of die cut flowers so this is something that you can easily replicate with different collections.
