My First Cocoa Vanilla Class Layouts

Do you like Cocoa Vanilla? Do you enjoy Scrapbooking classes?  Have you ever been to The Crafty Chain in Brisbane?  I have been to a couple of classes and on Friday night I was at the Crafty Chain. This was my first time ever playing with the Cocoa Vanilla products.

The class I went to was taught by Zoe Pearn, the very talented lady that owns the company Cocoa Vanilla.

I was dying to meet her.  I love her story and I love her designs.

If you read my blog a lot, you know I am extremely loyal to Kaisercraft products, but I have been watching the Cocoa Vanilla brand and thinking a little about it.

When I heard Zoe was teaching a class I just had to attend.

The class was very fast in places and I had trouble keeping up, but once I got a feel for the layouts I settled in.

 I love Zoe’s style of scrapping and have been very inspired by her work.

  Once I got home I finished my layouts and embellished them.  It was nice to be able to do this just taking my time.

I went to the class with two of my friends and I also managed to meet lots of new friends at the class! That was an added bonus.

It was a very friendly atmosphere : )  I love meeting people who love our hobby.

  2. I am a huge fan off Cocoa Vanilla. Not only because the collections are so beautifully designed but because they are Australian made and owned. Zoe and her design team are amazing xx

    1. Hi Debra,
      Do you know I havent come across anyone that doesnt love Cocoa Vanilla yet! The Aussie made thing is awesome! What a talented lady Zoe is. Thanks for your comment : ) xxx

  3. Hi Alicia
    Love your layouts and I do love cocoa vanilla and kaisercraft too they are both amazing. Only new to cocoa vanilla in a way it was last year I got some things and so loved everything I got! Took me ages to scrap with it though only just did a few months ago i was being abit weird in that it was too pretty to cut into it! It would of been amazing to do that class. The new blog looks great!!! Oh do we need to subscribe to the newsletter again with your new blog?

    1. Hi Naomi,
      We obviously have similar crafting tastes ; ) Two awesome companies right there! I have been watching Cocoa Vanilla for awhile, but I have to admit I dont buy a lot of crafting supplies and I dont get a lot of time to work on anything other than Kaisercraft. However, I loved these products and I am having a very hard time getting them out of my head! I totally get you not wanting to cut the pretty papers. They are just way too pretty to cut up!!
      Thanks for your feedback on the new blog. It is a work in progress. So much to learn with the new technology, but so much more available on WordPress than Blogger. It will certainly take me time. Every few days I get a chance to fix it up a little bit more. Maybe by the end of the year it will be looking how I want it to look ha ha ha. I’m doing it all myself so there is a lot of learning and googling going on.
      No need to sign up again for the newsletter. It is run through Mail Chimp so it is an independent program and it will happily merge over with WordPress.
      Alicia : ) xx
