"You and Me" by Anthea

My Challenge for this months CC is currently running
 at the Scrap Suite
My challenge this month is simple - you need  to scrap a photo of YOU!  I don't mind if there are a 'few' others in the photo with you but YOU must be in the photo and a key player in the photo.

I started with a photo of my hubby and I from earlier this year knowing that I wanted the photo to be the  main feature of the page, so I kept the whole LO very simple.
I started with some very messy stencilling with a purple texture paste through another favourite D-lish stencil.  I wanted to add some more colour to this and decided simply to add some watercolour pencil lines here and there around the stencilling.  It is all very messy, but that is what I was wanting.
I then added flicks of black mist and some black stamping.  I then scattered these gorgeous flower sequins over my design. Somehow I had never seen these in the shop before - now that I have I think I will be using them...a lot.    They come in other colours but I only picked out the ones that I felt worked with the LO.

I then added my title which are 'vintage D-lish' alphas.  I can't believe I still have some in my stash.
I didn't have an & so I cut up some letters that I am not likely to use and created my little + with that way.

Then to finish my LO I simply placed a D-lish sequin bow in the corner.
That is it.  Just a quick, fun and simple LO that I am pretty happy with.
Thanks once again for looking and I really hope you give my challenge a go.  It will be great to see photos of everyone and put a name to the face and you have the chance to win a fabulous prize JAP kit.  It is a win-win situation.  If you don't win and you want a gorgeous JAP kit - don't forget to check out this months gorgeous kit here.
Till next time.
Take care.

Mr Cool | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
Today I'm here to share my cybercrop challenge that was released over in the Scrap Suite last Friday.

My challenge is to create a layout with a photo that is not your usual square/rectangle. For my sample I have used two photos, one colour and one black and white. The subject in my photo was fussy cut from the colour pic and layered using foam dots onto the black and white one to make it pop!

Here's my layout ...

I knew I wanted a mixed media background for this layout so went to town with some gesso, watercolours and stamps. 

I created lots of layers on this one for interest using, bitty bags, coloured doilies and some speech bubble die cuts from a past 'Just Add Paper' kit.

I also tucked in a polka dot date tab to add my date.

I used some wordfetti strips here and there as well as some wood veneer pieces which are also from past kits.

A few flair, some scattered buttons and washi tape and the layout was done.
I'm so happy with how this one turned out. I hope it inspires you to create your own layout soon.

Happy Scrapping!

DREAM, by Amanda H

Hi all,
Today I start with making a huge SHOUT OUT to the owner of D-lish Scraps - the lovely and talented Amanda Lawrence. There seems to be no end to her design ideas. Her products choices, eye for colour and ability to design means that EVERY month there is something new and wonderful at D-lish. We are so lucky!
My page today is focused on one of those products she designs - Creative Cuts. I do not have a fancy cutting machine - no time, space or money for one of those - so instead I rely on Amanda's Creative Cuts! There are so many designs. So many options. Including Unicorns.....
This beautiful unicorn Creative Cut inspired my page, which inspired my Cybercrop challenge over at The Scrap Suite!
Here is the challenge details from the Scrap Suite.
No automatic alt text available.
Can you create a unicorn inspired page?
Let's look at some close ups to see some of the details on the page.
The main focus of the page is the unicorn. I fussy cut shiny silver paper under the mane and the nose, and vellum under the head.
For the unicorn horn, I placed shiny glitter silver paper. Then I topped with resin flowers, Little Birdie flowers, pearl cabochons and D-lish enamel dots.
The Unicorn Dreams Creative Cut set also included the word "dreams" - which I used as DREAM, for my title; and some diecut stars, which also made the page. I sprinkled more pearl cabochons and D-lish enamel dots amongst this.
Alongside the photo, I created another cluster. I started with the silver Sequin bow and to this added: Little birdie flower, resin flowers, D-lish Scraps Flair button from Flights of Fantasy Just Add Paper KitD-lish enamel dots and a soft pink Cornflower.
Under the photo, I layered some vellum with a paper lace doily.
 Thanks for stopping by to get all the details of my page today! Have a happy unicorn day.

"Our life" by Mal

Hi all, 

A quick share from me this week and when I say quick I mean this was a 15 min page for me and it only took that long because I had to wait for my background to dry :).
It was super quick because I simply ripped open a mini it from D-lish and used nearly everything from the kit on my page.

I love everything D-lish; everyone knows that - but what I love more is creating a page without having to think about what goes together and what fits or works.

I love KITS. I love the mini kits and I LOVE the JAP kits.

So D-lish mini kits are PERFECT for me...grab one and wham page done. LOL.
I would never choose these crotchet bows myself but after using them from the kit I love them.

Die cuts are another thing I don't normally choose myself and use on a page. I often find them hard to use, but these die cuts from the mini kits are the perfect size and great colour too.

Last but not least I love the small embies in the kits; a flair, a flag and I've added some D-lish enamel dots as well.

What do you think?
Happy scrapping...

Little Helper - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am back with my 2nd June share.
This layout I created, using a theme from the March cybercrop, monochrome layout. 

Of course, I had to choose pink as my monochromed theme. 
I started with the background that had been geli-plated then added texture paste through a  hexagonal stencil, and then a combination of sprays in different pink tones. 

I also added a bow from the Love like this kit bits and some of the new flower sequins.

Finally, the last cluster, has a flair button hiding at the top.

Pink is a great colour to work with. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

‘So Cool’ by Amy

Hi All.
Lucky me! I recently went on an awesome Scrapbooking Retreat with some wonderful people. I have been waiting to scrap this photo taken in the backstreets of the city of Melbourne. It’s worth walking through and checking out the fabulous street art.

First, I primed my page with clear Gesso, then splattered orange and blue ink around. After this dried, I used a permanent black ink and stamped randomly around the page.
Once the background was complete, it was time to layer the photo.


As pictured here, I trimmed strips of Punchinella and placed a blue mini paper bag behind the photo. In the store there, there is a huge variety of paper bags to choose from. I have trimmed down two words from the Journal It’s Minifetti, for subheadings. A favourite of mine – clear glass Cabochons – have been placed around the page.

From the fabulous limited-edition kits that Amanda placed in the store early this year, I have used the cutfile title and glitter pennant.
Both the wood veneer and embroidered speech bubble were from the past JAP kit – Boys Rule. A paper doily was also used: the orange was perfect to compliment the title.


In this small cluster, I have used a flair and surrounded with wire, D-Lish Dots and glitter stars, again, from the ‘Boys Rule’ JAP kit. I have also used some more clear glass cabochons.

Overall, I am pleased with this layout. I love the blue and orange combo!

Thank you for dropping by!
Ciao for now, Amy😊
