A BIG Announcement from Zoe

Hello everyone! :)

Well, this has been a long (really long) time coming…

Over the years that I’ve been designing, so many things have changed. My goal has gone from wanting to pay my monthly internet bill ($10 a month at the time LOL), to being able to support my family. I have had many paper lines and fabric lines too which still blows my mind. I would never have dreamed that the opportunities that I have had along the way would have been possible when I started, and I am so grateful for them to this day.

One thing that hasn’t changed though, since day one, is my love of paper, my love of pattern, and my love of scrapbooking. And since the beginning, I’ve had a little dream that just won’t leave me alone… that is to one day start up my own little scrapbooking company.

And that day has come!! Yippee!!

So, I am so excited (and super nervous LOL) to announce my new venture… Cocoa Vanilla Studio – the Fresh Face of Australian Scrapbooking!


And YES, I will be shipping internationally too!

I’ve been working on this for the last 4 years. I’ve registered trademarks, done many revisions of the website, cried lots with frustration and fear, had countless paper lines ready to go, and then chickened out at the last hurdle. But this time, it’s for real… As we speak, there’s a ship on it’s way across the Pacific Ocean filled with my own paper goodies!! Lines will be available mid- January 2015 – here are a couple of peeks! :)


If you’re a crafty mama, paper scrapper (or a paper hoarder, I won’t judge LOL), and would like to sign up for the Cocoa Vanilla Studio newsletter to be kept in the loop (and get an exclusive subscriber discount from your first order), you can subscribe HERE!

If you are a retailer who is interested in stocking our products, you can sign up for a wholesale account HERE :)


For my digital scrapbooking peeps, you may be wondering what this means for my digital scrapbooking designs… And at this point, I’m not planning on going anywhere! I still love the freedom that digi gives me, and all of you, so I don’t plan on giving it up just yet! But I may have a few less releases if things get busy. Just know that if you don’t see a release from me for a little while, that I’m happily knee deep packing paper orders! :)

So here’s to chasing dreams, and pretty paper!

December 2014 Super Scrappers

Hello everyone!
Sherly here again to bring you the last Super Scrappers post for the year 2014! How can it be already almost the end of the year?! Are you all busy with Christmas? Have you got all the presents and decorations ready?
Well, whether you’re ready or not, I hope you are having a wonderful time in this festive month!
Now, let’s get on to the pages I’ve picked for this month!

The first one is Happiness is.. Fall by aballen.Those shadowing and layering are gorgeous! Gorgeous use of flowers and banner there! And that photo is so fun!

Second one is this beautiful photoless layout, Life by caramellche. Love that quote on the card, love the paint works, love every bit and pieces she put in here! Beautiful!

This one is a gorgeous Christmas Project Life page! Evan’s First Christmas by amymarieschn is such a cute page! All of those photos are so cute and perfectly matched the colors of the kit she used! I especially love the photo of him wearing the Santa’s hat!

Love the happy photos here! Nice composition and the use of many beautiful papers is spot on! Gather Together by Pamie gives me all warm feeling of Thanksgiving. :)

Last but not least, Magic Moments by ScrappinRae. Such a sweet and pretty page! The layering, the scatters, the kit and the picture, they are such a perfect combination!

That’s all for now! I hope you enjoy looking at all these pretty pages as much as I do!
Enjoy this festive Christmas month and I shall be back next year with the Super Scrappers post around the same time! Until then, keep scrapping beautiful pages and don’t forget to upload any layouts with Zoe’s designs in her SSD gallery!

And with that, I shall wish you all a very happy Christmas and blessed New Year 2015!

I’ll still be working furiously on a new & exciting project, but more about that later! ;)

Project Life Tuesday: December 9


Hi everyone! It’s Marla here and I’m back to share two of my Project Life spreads. In the perfect world, I would be completely up to date and able to show off some recent pages with Zoe’s gorgeous Christmas kits. Unfortunately, I’m not quite that caught up! But I do plan on finishing all of November in the next couple of weeks and will have my entire year finished in January. I’m very excited about getting it all printed and into my hands. Anyway, back to the pages…

We are corn farmers and both week forty-three and week forty-four were busy with harvest! This is our busiest season of the year and the big reason I am behind on my scrapping.

Here is week forty-three:


This week was a full one- it was my Mom’s birthday and we were busy with corn harvest. I loved the pretty colors of Everyday Beautiful by Zoe Pearn & Studio Flergs. It seemed to match my pictures perfectly!


My love affair with labels and little world strips continued. I’m typically not big on journaling and having a little spot for a few words is perfect for me! Plus, I get to keep the focus on my pictures.



Week forty-four included more harvest pictures, my birthday, and Halloween. We don’t usually get to be very spooky around here, but I was still able to adapt Hocus Pocus by Kristin Cronin-Barrow, Zoe Pearn, and Studio Flergs for a more non-thememy week.


Once again, I kept my pages very photo focused and was able to fit a ton of shots into one spread without it feeling overwhelming. Aren’t the colors of this kit so unique and fun!



On the right side, I included more pictures and journaling that detailed the exciting events of the week. My sister made me a birthday cake, the leaves were looking beautiful and I was even able to fit in a Sunday nap. Good week!


Thank you for stopping by to check out my Project Life pages!
