'Adored' by Lauren Tomecek

Hello! Lauren here today, a couple of days later than normal because I was celebrating my son turning three and party prep kind of took over my life. I'm very happy to be back on track now and sharing this layout of my nana and me. I was originally going to use the 'proper' photo of the two of us, but decided the 'out-take' version was a much better memory to document. :)

There are so many D-lish Scraps goodies on this layout, because every time I looked through my stash I found something new that matched the colour theme and had to go on the page. My first embellishment cluster has a black Bitty Bow, Little Birdie watercolour flower, resin glitter dot and sequins. The flair, washi tapes and resin rose are all from past Just Add Paper kits. The fern leaf also came from D-lish but seems to be out of stock and not currently listed. You can just see the edges of my white paper doily poking out from behind the photo too.  

I wanted a simple little cluster in the top right of the page, to provide some balance to the design. The resin rose comes from a past Just Add Paper Kit, all other supplies are already listed above.

The bottom cluster is so big I thought I'd break it down into two photos so you can check out the details. You can see I've used two different types of paper flower blooms, as well as another Little Birdie watercolour flower. The tassle is from a previous Just Add Paper Kit. The lovely title piece is a Kinder Kreations chipboard title. 

This angle shows of another Bitty Bow and paper flower, as well as more resin glitter dots. The small blue resin flower is from a past Just Add Paper kit.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, hope it's inspired you!

"Another Day.." by Amanda H

Hello again D-lish Scrap fans!
Welcome to my second page share for August.
This one was inspired by a challenge at a recent retreat, where we had to use a piece of patterned paper from the lucky dip bag of papers. I got one with wooden geometric shapes and cut each one out rather than using the whole sheet of paper. I then distressed the edges, before piecing them together on some white cardstock and machine stitching them.
A feature on this page are the D-lish Creative Cut flowers.... I carefully cut more coordinating patterned paper to lay behind each flower. I layered these flowers with Creative Cut leaves and few more D-lish goodies, which you can see in these close ups.
I cut strips of Ombre Wordfetti (in yellow) and scattered them around the layout.
I also layered a pretty Lace Doily behind the photo.
Also scattered around the layout are some of the new "faceted" enamel dots, found in the D-lish Dots section of the website. These are so sweet!
I never miss a chance to use a sequin bow! Love them so much!
Thanks for looking today!

"Selfie" by Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone

It's Rachel here with you today, and with all boys in my family,
the only chance I have to get all 'girly' is to scrap a selfie! 

Well, why not use some of my favourite D-lish products 
on a layout of myself!!

My layout is based on Michelle's sketch challenge for the
July Cybercrop over in The Scrap Suite.

This challenge has now closed, however the new August challenges have just been listed, so you have a whole month to play along!

I have been hoarding this piece of patterned paper to use specifically on a selfie layout, and I picked out lots of D-lish goodies to match.

My title is a Corbett Creations wood veneer word, and I have complemented that with some Corbett Creations wood veneer circles. I've highlighted my title word with a bright hot pink sequin bow.

I've used my favourite wild rose, some tea roses and apple blossoms.
The lace doilies give just that little extra detail, especially on 'girlie' pages.

I've added lots of pearl cabochons - round, hearts and 3D hearts, clustered with a mix of D-lish dots and gorgeous faceted enamel dots. I've also added an older D-lish crotchet heart from my stash.

D-lish products used-
Head over to The Scrap Suite on Facebook and check out the
August Cybercrop challenges.
I set a challenge this month, so I hope you can play along!

Thanks for looking

Hello little one - by Nicolee Cable

Happy Sunday to you!
I hope you are relaxing this weekend and getting some 
creative juices flowing.

First of all, a quick reminder that we are currently
holding our August Cybercrop over at The Scrap Suite on FB.
I wanted to show you my challenge layout which is a goal setting challenge 
'This time next year'.  
I was inspired by the TV show that's popular right now.  
I'm not much of a goal setter, in fact I struggle with 
getting my goals on paper, 
so I decided this might be a good opportunity to write some of my goals down in a creative way.
If you lift the 'Today' flair, it reveals my goals/dreams/visions 
for the coming year.
I was also inspired by Julys Just Add Paper (JAP) kit
that I hadn't had a chance to use yet.

Here are all the yummy goodies from the 'Primrose Lane' July JAP kit:

I enjoyed working with this colour palette so much, that I decided to use up 
pretty much all of it on these two layouts 
(and added a little more from my D-lish stash).

Here is my layout for today post.
My mum has two new little puppies - so super cute! I can't
wait to meet them in person soon.

 I have added:
washi tape

I hope you enjoyed these layouts and don't forget to
pop on over to join in the Cybercrop.  There are some
great challenges and very cute prizes to be won.
You have to be in it to win it!

Happy Scrapping and enjoy the weekend and 
grab yourself some D-lish goodness from the store  to inspire you!

See you soon

"Be Happy" by Julianne McKenna

There is something magical and soothing about circles. When included on a layout, they always look fabulous, but you must remember to keep your layout balanced and focused for the best result (working in "odd" numbers is often a good way to do this). 

To make the most of the circle concept in this layout, I fussy cut circles from The Bright Side of Life paper range by ScrapCake. I then added even more circles with raw wood veneer shapes, paper doilies, and flair buttons, all from the D-Lish store

I'm in love with these gorgeous pink butterfly flair buttons. They are so pretty and feminine, and look good with everything. Not a fan of pink? Well luckily, there are lots of colours to choose from in the D-Lish store, right here

Why paint raw wood veneer when you can wrap it in coloured wire and add Liquid Pearls for a pop of colour! And don't forget to add some vellum butterflies for a finished touch to your layout - it's all about the details. 

And you can layer fussy cut circles over the raw wood veneer, place a paper doily underneath, add some roses and carnations, and make gorgeous medallion embellishments. 

Flowers are always a must. I just can't get enough of them. And how stunning do these pink cabbage roses look with a bright pop of yellow from the Wild Rose

Just look at all those layers and details! I don't know about you, but this makes me happy. 

Thanks for stopping by and joining me today. If you would like to view more of my work, please visit my blog: JULES THE BLING PRINCESS.

Have a great scrappy week!

Cheers and happy crafting,

"Love Melbourne" by Gwen Wruck

Hi Creative Friends,

I hope you are all doing well!

Gwen here today to share another layout, this one featuring a shot of my beloved Melbourne!  I adore this place and once a year I take a trip down with my bestie and we have an absolute blast, shopping up a storm and eating one too many macaroons.  Each year I act the tourist by taking a stack of photos of the old buildings around the city; this one is one of my favs, I just love the vintage details!

This page started out with the cut file I have used in the background.  I fell in love with the heart shapes and simply backed with contrasting pink and white and then added some machine stitching.  With a busy background like this one, I knew I wanted to keep the rest of the layout pretty clean and I knew I would find sweet little D-lish goodies to add that would be the perfect finishing touch. 

I have created a little photo mat for my photo, just to separate it from the background.  I've done this with a couple of layers of scraps. To the left side of the photo, I've added a few tags out the side for interest.  There is a stack of Printed Tag Packs to choose from in store and I love the solid white tops on them so you can choose how much of the design you want to show.  On the right side of the photo, I have added an embellishment cluster featuring my favourite Fantasy Bloom flowers.

Here you can see the 'love' Corbett Creations wood words piece which makes up part of my title, and the daintiest little heart which I have kept plain and simply placed inside of one of the die cut hearts on the background.

I have also added a Wood Veneer Heart to round out my cluster and you can also see here the cute little Bitty Bow clip - You all know I'm quite partial to a bow and these are so sweet!  I love sliding them in between my paper layers so that you don't see the paper clip part and just the sweet little bow.  They are a great little touch to add.

and that rounds out the layout.  As I mentioned, with such a busy cut file background, I didn't need to add too much more to the page and it was done.

Happy as Larry | Michelle Stokes

Hello D-lish friends!! I'm back today with a new layout share I made over the weekend at an amazing retreat I attended. Was such a wonderful time, and I even got to meet a few fellow Team members in real life, including our Boss lady Amanda! Didn't get too much creating done though as I spent a lot of time talking or pushing papers around lol and most layouts I needed to add more to once I got home after forgetting certain things when I was packing.

The layout I've chosen to share today was based on my sketch from the July Cyber crop challenge. I really liked the base design of the sketch and it was a perfect way to kickstart my scrapping inspiration over the weekend. 

I scrapped a photo of Leila from a few weeks ago while we were trying to enjoy the school holidays. This poor mumma was struck down with a dreaded head cold/ flu virus that wiped me out the entire 2 weeks off, so Leila spent quite a few days rotating between books, creating in her art book, loads of Screen time and playing with toys. Her favourite pastime is definitely screen time .... mixing it up between Youtube toy reviews, ABC for kids app and her Mathletics school app. Fun times!

Heres another look back at the sketch, which I rotated clockwise for a vertical design. I can't help it, I'm addicted to flipping and rotating sketches!

I ended up spreading out the embellishments to create a diagonal design, and added in an extra cluster of goodness to balance it all out.

Here's a closer look at all the pretty bits n bobs...

I've used most of my favourite embellishments in these clusters, choosing colours that complimented the papers from the Life is Beautiful collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I turned the Bitty Bow clip on its side and slid it onto the photo, then created a cluster to the left using a Little Birdie flower, paper flower, flair button, ombre wordfetti and some of the stunning NEW faceted enamel dots

As always I've added a lace doily within the layers of papers under the photo. I love the soft delicate design they add to a layout. I chose to use a Black & White photo as there were so many colours within it that would clash with the colours I chose to scrap with. I've also tucked in some strips of pattern Journal It cards to the top of the photo (blue & yellow)

To the right of the photo I created a smaller cluster using a gold sequin bow, wordfetti piece, more faceted enamel dots, paper and Little Birdie flowers. 

Along the bottom of the layout I've grouped together some Journal It's (circle & hello my name is card, a strip cut from a yellow speech bubble card Journal It, Happy Day journal It ticket from a mixed pack I've hoarded for so long), more flowers the same as the other clusters, a butterfly Creative Cut and some more faceted enamel dots. Other pieces added into all the clusters are from the ephemera and sticker sets within the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Collection.

Lastly I created a large title using the "Happy" word creative cut (from the Script Words set), and some white Puffy Alphabet stickers. I added the stitching for some detail, but to also ensure they stuck for good. A few lines of typed text journalling and then some splatters of gold ink and the layout was complete. 

Well thats all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope this has given you some form of inspiration, and please be sure to share yours with us in the Scrap Suite on Facebook.

Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
