"So Cute" by Jasmine

Today I am sharing a page that was really just a spur of the moment creation.
I was sorting through papers to see what I would use and I came across some A4 size book paper.
I also had my photos spread across the desk and saw these pics and because they were tiny, knew they were perfect.
From there it began.
And it ended by using more gorgeous D'lish Scraps products.

I used glimmer mist in the background (yes, I still have HEAPS of that stuff).
I used some ink to dye one of the paper doilies to blend with the off white of the paper.
I used an old clothes tag and then added the sequin bow and the title So Cute using word pieces.
The other embellishments I used were a paper flower, little roses, coloured wire which I shaped into a heart, more word pieces from a JAP kit, wood veneer heart and then some yellow vellum butterflies from the previous Mini Kits.  

I love how the close up shows you every sequin on that bow.

So sometimes you don't need a piece of 12x12 paper and a 6x4 photo.
Just use anything that jumps out at you.

"Hello Sugar" by Anthea

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. 
Today I am sharing with you yet another LO featuring my gal. 
To create the back ground I actually pulled out my Gelli pad. I have had it for a while now, but never seem to make the time to play.  I layered my two paints and smooshed them together on the pad and   then used a D-lish stencil (this one came from the Spring Fling JAP kit) to leave an imprint on the pad which would then transfer to my paper.  It kind of smudged every where but I stuck with it as I like the messy look.
I then added some gold foil around the imprints left by the stencil and randomly over the page to add a bit of a pop to the LO.
I then added some flowers (both resin and paper), a  sequin bow, some butterfly colour me cuts, a D-lish flair and the tag that came with the "Hello Sugar" JAP kit across the bottom of the photo. Every JAP kit comes wrapped with twine or wool and it's own little tag - I never throw them away as they make cute extra embellishments.  
I coloured the main butterfly with water coloured pencils and left the others uncoloured and then placed them to create a visual triangle to help draw the focus to the photo. 
Overall, I am really pretty happy with  how this LO come out.  I love the sweet but bold colours.  I am still not sure why I went with a green paint and not a blue - I usually try to match up to my photo.  In this case blue felt wrong and I am so glad I went with my instinct because I think it makes the photo pop. 
Well that is it for now.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
Hugs from me.

Walking the Dog | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
I'm back with my second share for February, this one is a photo of my daughter walking our dog when he was just a puppy. He's 3 now so it's been in the to-be-scrapped pile for a while.

I selected papers and embellishments to match the colours in the photo; pink, green and brown. There was a lot of 'blank space' in the photo but I didn't want to crop it down too much and lose the trees in the background. Instead, I used a wood veneer frame to draw the eye to the focal point. 

For my larger cluster I used a Chinese Peony as the main element. I then added more paper flowers, a resin rose and a flair. I cut a pip berry stem in half and looped it so that it was coming out from behind my floral cluster. I also added some enamel dots and tiny heart buttons from a past JAP kit.

I layered a coloured paper doiley under the photo before building my second cluster. I also added some paper leaves. Other D-lish pieces included the two journal tags which I layered at the top of the photo where I included my date.

I hope you have been inspired by my layout today. 

Until next time,

"Snapshots", by Amanda H

Hello D-lish Scraps fans!
Sharing again today a page I created for the CSI challenges. I used a past Just Add Paper Kit - which I hadn't even opened! (Hands up if you are guilty of that!) I used both the main kit as well as the die cut ephemera packs you can now get with every kit. So many pretty extras!
I started with a piece of striped paper that I had already cut a circle from. I placed this on white cardstock and embellished around it! The past JAP kit was tones of blue and turquoise, to which I added a splash of red.
I used cuts, flair and journal it's, all from the Just Add Paper kit.
Then I added a red Tea roses.
I took some Creative Cuts (leaves and open leaves) and coloured them blue, and tucked under the cluster with some red stamen.
I then repeated these embellishments in a few clusters around the circle.
This one included a blue word, cut from Ombre Wordfetti.
In this cluster I used a Petunia Floral Creative cut, and coloured it red to layer in the cluster.
This cluster includes more of the same, but also an vintage Charms Creations lollipop, which I also coloured red. It is a another pop of red amongst all the awesome blue D-lish goodies.
Do you have an old Just Add Paper kit in your stash un-opened? Get it out and create with it today!
Thanks for looking,

Family Always by Tracey B

Hi everyone,
You know when you have an idea in your mind about how you want your layout to look?  
Well that is not what happened here!

I started with some pink card stock then added a deeper pink paint which I partially rubbed off with a babywipe through a stencil.   I forgot to gesso my page first so I had some trouble with this and I didn't really like the pinks so I ended up covering it with grey paint and rubbing some of that back.  Added some gesso and some more paint stamped using the end of some cardboard tubes.
Then time to embellish using lots of D'Lish goodness.   
I've used a doily which I cut as the base for my clusters, punchinella, washi tape from a Just Add Paper kit, a fabric flower, paper flowers and rosebuds, some pearl heart carbochons and enamel dots, leaves, a sequin bow and flair button as well.   I finished up by using a chipboard word which I covered with gesso as part of my title.

Plenty of time to enter this month's Mood Board Challenge "Love Always".

Looking forward to seeing what you create.

"Love" by Renee Iveson

I am very excited to share the layout and card I created for the February Inspiration board: Love Always.
What wasn't I was inspired by with this inspiration board?? As soon as I saw this one I Knew exactly what to create! I was inspired by the gorgeous colour pallet and just just loved the romantic theme.

I have used lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies for this layout. I love the Paper Doilies, coordinating flairs,  Colour Me Cuts and the sweet wood veeners. I added in a Pick and Place canvas bow  and a puffy heart from a past Just Add Paper kit.

You can find the details about the current Inspiration board Love Always HERE.

For the header for this layout I have used a Creative Cut word and backed it in patterned paper and then used a Scalloped Edge Felt Doily to make it stand out. 

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

Renee xoxo

Love by Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, popping in with my first share for February, using this months inspiration board.
Here is the board for you to be inspired by:
Here is my layout which worked so well for this inspiration board. 
I had this Creative Cuts - heart page cuts to use, so trimmed it and then coloured it with some Lindy's stamp gang, which really made the page cuts stand out on the layout. 

So if you have your stash of JAP kits, I am sure you will be able to put together something for this inspiration board too. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.
