"love you more" by Anthea

 Oh My is December!  Where has the year gone?  I don't know about you, but The Silly Season has certainly crept up on me. 
Today I am sharing a simple LO I created of my daughter and I.  This photo was taken in an effort to make sure I appear more photos, especially with my kidlets. I want them to look back and remember that I was a part of their life too and not just behind the camera.

This LO started with the creative page cut from D-lish. I was originally going to use the whole lot but it was being covered up a lot by the photo, so I did my best to cut it to size.  That way I still have more to play with later.  (My cutting is so not perfect so please don't look too closely)
I found papers that I wanted to back each heart with and secured them with glue to the back of the creative cut.  I then lay it where I wanted as a partial frame around my photo. I also mounted it with scraps of cardboard to add a bit of height to my LO.
I then added a sequin bow and a few small flowers as a simple accent to off set the 'heart frame'.  These particular flowers are forget me nots - they are new to the store and like the sequin bows, they come in an array of gorgeous colours.  My aim is to collect them all. 
I then used a sticker I have had for a while as my title.  I will admit, I was just playing with the sticker when it got stuck on my photo, I had the choice of ripping it off and starting the whole LO again or to leave it there.  I opted to leave it.
I then felt like the LO needed a bit more of a pop.  I wanted to sew, but time (and was lacking - so I simply grabbed some D-lish washie tape from a previous D-lish JAP kit to use as a border around my whole LO.  
This particular tape comes from the Love like this JAP kit from February this year - I use it regularly and I still have tons of it left - washie tapes and JAP kits are simply the best value. 
Well that is it for now. 
Next time I see you it will be Christmas Eve, unless I see you before in The Scrap Suite.  I hope that you can find some time in your busy day to come and check out my LO and say hi.
Till then,
Take care

"Unicorns and fairydust", by Amanda H

 Hello D-lish fans!
Today is all about the rainbow! I created the background in a flash using some watercolour pastels - so super easy! Then, I glitterized and embellished!
In the lower right cluster, I added some stickers from my stash and a Charms Creations heart. This cluster is perfectly finished with a sequin bow!
For each colour of the rainbow, I added sequins, stickers and flowers to match.
My D-lish stash of resin flowers were used extensively!
I also added lots of different enamel dots from the D-lish Dots range.
I also used some ripped and scrunched pieces of yellow tissue paper through the layout.
Thanks for looking, have a rainbow-filled day!

Happy Days by Tracey B

Hello again.
When I saw the roller skates in this month's mood board I was reminded of a family holiday we took to Mildura in 1975 where I learned to skate.   I had to dig through the box of old photos but I found it.   I know the photo isn't great and my heads chopped off (thanks Mum!) but it was perfect for the retro vibe.

I started with some paint through a stencil.   This one is not by D'Lish Scraps but you can get a great range here.  I've used a couple of doilies to ground my cluster and a little bit of torn washi tape.

For each cluster I've used a mixture of paper flowers, resin flowers and D-Lish dots.   To my main cluster I've added a sequin heart from the Spring Fling Just Add Paper kit, a cool flair, a puffy map marker and some twine.    I've left my wood veneer title raw.   This came from the Peach Twist Just Add Paper Kit.

Check out the mood board and give it a shot.   Look forward to seeing what you create.

"Cooking is Love Made Visible" by Renee Iveson

 I can't believe that we are so very close to Christmas already!
Today I am sharing the layout I created for the December Inspiration board: Slice of Summer
 What wasn't I was inspired by with this gorgeous inspiration board?? Anyone who knows me knows just how much I love retro! 

As soon as I saw the inspiration board I instantly knew which photo I wanted to scrap. It is of my first attempt at baking an apple and rhubarb pie from scratch.

I have played with a stitchable wood veener and added in some wood veener leaves which are quickly becoming a new D-Lish fave of mine!
Who doesn't love a doily or 2? I have added in a white paper one in the background of my layout and a cute pink gingham bow in the cluster to the right. 

You can find the details about the current Inspiration board SLICE OF SUMMER HERE.

I have used a selection of paper flowers which are such a bargain it is always a great idea to stock up! I have added in a sweet little tassel to finish the cluster.

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

Renee xoxo

Cheers to Us - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, can you believe it is December? I really can't, I really need another month up my sleeve.
My first share for December is one inspired by the December Inspiration Board, a nice summery board, sure to get you searching for those summer pictures from last year.

My photo is from last December, a rare moment to catch up with my sister, as we live in different states, and this was her birthday, and she was in my home city. 
Cheers to Us
I quite liked the vintage feel to the inspiration board, and was inspired by the flower image. So I chose a floral paper, and then went from there. 
In my first cluster I have used a Green Tara AzaleaColour me cuts flowers, which I coloured using gelatos, flairLittle Birdie pearl petites marshmallow flowersforget me notsfaceted enamel dots
So I hope we get to see what you create using the inspiration board.
Until next time, happy scrapping.

Hi All!

New Month, new inspiration board - with a retro summery feel to it. When I saw this inspiration board, I knew just the photo to scrap.

This photo was captured on our family travels in Florence, Italy, in 2015. 
Those who know me, know that I have a liking for cute small cars - whether it be a vintage 'Mini' or a modern 'Smart Car' - a la Clouseau!

I have created this page using Kraft paper trimmed down to 8x12. I have splattered the background with black ink. Then I 'fringe-cut' various strips of patterned paper. I arranged them in an angular way on the page - and then adhered the black and white photo down. 

Then it was time to decorate!

As pictured here, I have placed 'Creative Cuts' over a Charms Creations Gold Arrow. To complete the butterfly, in this little cluster, I used a coloured wire and wood veneer flower from the 'Spring Fling' JAP kit. A yellow fabric bloom was used here too. 

The strips of quotes from a Journal Pack from a past JAP Kit were just perfect to use here. To embellish further - and add some more colour over the papers I have used tassles from the store. These are gorgeous and come in a range of colours.

Finally, to complete the page, I have placed a flair. These are gorgeous goodies to complete the page with. 
Thank you for dropping by and checking out this simple summery page!

Ciao, Amy

"Moments to Remember" by Jasmine

Good morning, afternoon, evening.
Well hello December.
Where did you come from?

Officially less than 3 weeks until that special day.
I hope you have been a good girl/boy so Santa has you on his list to drop off a few special pressies.

I am sharing a page today that is pretty simple but I really wanted it to be about the photo.  When we were in Vietnam there were a lot of times that we did not allow technology as it was about the experience and what was around us.
This particular photo was taken when we were waiting for a meal.
It was pretty special seeing the kids all interact and "just have fun" with something so simple as a game with their hands.

 I created my background using stencils, stamps and inks.
I then centred the photo and from there I added the few embellishments but just enough that they catch your eye then take your eyes around the photo as I hoped they would.

I have also used resin flowers, sequin bow, small roses, and a teal cornflower.

And remember to join us over at The Scrap Suite with these fabulous challenges if you haven't aleady done so.

See you again soon.
