"Cool" by Jasmine

Hello again.

Hope you are well.

I am sharing a page that highlights my two crazy boys about 5 years ago....And I can say, nothing has changed... even though they are now 14.

I went crazy with shades of blue.  
I loooooove blues and it went perfectly with the colours in my photo.

It was so easy to go through my D'lsih stash and pull out anything blue... Although the background took a bit of time between "coats", the embellishments to finish the page was the easy bit.

I have used:
 Punchinella, sequins both circle and stars, paper doily, flair button, wordfetti pieces, stencil, D'lish enamel dots, a big glitter star from a Just Add Paper Kit and even the string that is wrapped around the JAP kit.  
Nothing goes to waste.

"Jump" by Anthea

Hi all again.  How are you all doing?  I don't know about you but I am finding how hard to believe the weeks are going by right now.  I am barely having time to scratch myself let alone finding much time to scrap.  Do you have bursts where you scrap a bunch and then taper off for a bit?
Anyways - I digress.  Today's LO is another LO that I did at retreat recently.  It has a lot of texture but was surprisingly pretty easy and not messy to put together.

I stared with a piece of textured paper - then I put some paint through a stencil (if you are looking for stencils we have lots here) and let it dry (that was the messiest part of this LO) and then stamped some stamps across the bottom of the paint, overlapping it.  I love the grungy effect. 
I then simply took some co-ordinating paper and ripped it up and tucked it behind my photos and then placed a doily (cut in half) as another layer.  I took some back cotton and scrunched that up and used that as another layer.
Then it was simply a matter of embellishing. 
I love the D-lish wood veneer pieces, so I lay them across my page.  You can paint these but I love them raw. 

I then cut a few quotes from a patterned paper and added a D-lish sequin bow (because you can never have too many of them).

I found the whole LO was missing a little something, so then (because nothing was stuck down at this stage) lifted everything up and flicked some black paint across the LO.  I love the look of splatters here and there.  If you like the look too but a scared to try the technique - I would suggest you try using some D-lish enamel dots.  They have a very similar effect but you can place them exactly how you like.

Well - that is it for today.
Keep well.

Lovely Day | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!

I'm back today with my second layout share for October. These photos are some selfies of my daughter and I on one of our family road trips.

My initial idea for this layout was to have a stitched grid design in the background. Once I worked out my overall design, I added some watercolour to the background where I knew it would peek out from behind my photos and embellishments. I then stitched only the areas that would be visible in the finished design.

For my title, I used a wood veneer piece that was included in a recent 'Just Add Paper' kit. I also added a small cluster of embellishments which included a flair, some paper flowers, leaves and resin pieces.

The cluster to the left of the photos used a Green Tara Aster as my feature. I added a few more of the same paper flowers from before as well as some leaves. I also used the two tiny wood veneer flowers that were included in the 'Spring Fling' kit before finishing the cluster off with a sequin flower from the grab bag.

The right hand cluster balances the layout nicely with more of the same embellishments.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my share for today. I'll be back with one final page before the end of the month.

Wings... by Amanda H

Hi D-lish fans!
Hope you are having a good October!
I am lucky enough to have some very creative daughters. One of their favourite things to do right now is photo shoots. They set up and get dress up and capture some wonderful photos. I just need to wrestle their phones from them so I can get the photos.
Today I am sharing two twin pages from a recent photo shoot - one of each daughter. In this photo shoot they had drawn wings on the brick wall and captured photos of them throwing and catching flowers.
For both pages I started with an amazing stencil of wings, which I used gold Bling Colour Paste through. Then I loaded some D-lish goodies to finish each page.
Page 1: Spread your wings and fly
In the top corner, I used some paper flowers - a especially love the peach coloured Carnation! A few bits from my stash, but I also used some D-lish enamel dots.
I squealed with delight, when I spotted the "Spread your wings and fly" quote on the D-lish Flair button when rummaging through my stash! I think this may have come from a previous Just Add Paper kit, but there are many more to choose from here.
Page 2: Love YOU
In the top corner of this layout, I layered some flowers: paper flowers and a resin flower - with some vellum flowers from my stash. I also tucked some stamens under the cluster.
For the opposite cluster, I repeated more of the same elements. But I also included a Flair button from the recent A Touch of Luxe - Just Add Paper kit.
So that's 2 for 1 pages this week! It is sometimes fun to make the same page twice with a different photo and some different embellishments!
Thanks for looking today!

1 Small Step by Tracey

Hi all!
This is my very first post ever as a Design Team member so super excited to be here at D-Lish Scraps and more than a little nervous so please bear with me while I learn on the job!

Here is what I created inspired by the October "Boy Wonder" Inspiration board.

I know I'm showing my age here but I vividly remember the moon landing so it was a thrill to actually visit the Kennedy Space Center earlier this year.   

I started by cutting out the NASA logo from a plastic bag I received from the obligatory gift shop and adhered it to my page with gel medium.   I then used some modelling paste through a star stencil and when that dried, smooshed a couple of different sprays over the top using the plastic bag technique.

I layered my photo with some bits from a past JAP Kit.

I added my journalling to a journal-it spot, added a flair button and sewed on some star buttons, also from a past JAP Kit.


I painted some Creative Cuts with black gesso and the wood veneer rockets from the "Boy Wonder" JAP kit and added a little bling.   I finished off the page with some sequins, string and those super cute teeny tiny stars from the JAP Kit.

Thanks for looking and hope you've been inspired.

My Boy layout by Renee Iveson

This is my first post as a designer for D-Lish and I am very excited to share the layout and card I created for the October Inspiration board: Boy Wonder. 
 I was inspired by the bright primary colours and just just loved the space theme.

I used the October 'Just Add Paper' (JAP)  kit which makes creating a layout a breeze!

This JAP kit included lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies for a bargain price. I love the 5 x 7 bags, coordinating flairs and die cuts and the sweet wood veeners.
I love that the JAP kits have a mini stencil included too, this months was a beautiful scattering of stars and dots, very delicate and very versatile! 
I have added in my absolute favourite D-lish product wire

You can find the details about the current Inspiration board Boy Wonder HERE.

When ever I finish a layout I always create a card with the scrap pieces left over. With the JAP kits their is more than enough goodies left over to create more layouts or multiple cards. 
I quickly whipped this simple card up with some of the left overs. 

Can't wait to see what you are inspired to create for this months inspiration board!

Renee xoxo

Out of this world - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am popping in with my first share for October. 
This one is for the current inspiration board, here it is as a reminder:
I have been wanting to scrap this photo of my nephew for some time, and this was the perfect inspiration for it. A little Buzz Lightyear, lol. 
Out of this world
I actually had some cute space themed papers, so this worked as my base and for some of the embellishment. To finish embellishing I was able to use some great products from D-lish Scraps.
The first cluster features punchinellaCorbett's Creations wood veneer stars - past kit bitsenamel dot and stars that were previous kit bits, but no longer available.
I hope we get to see your creation for this inspiration board.
Until next time, happy scrapping.
