Scrapbooking Memories Aussie Blog Hop!

Happy Australia Day!!

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Memories magazine Australia Day blog hop. We're so glad you found your way here.



With so many great Australian businesses taking part today, you are bound to be filled with inspiration and find many wonderful offers and giveaways as you hop along.

For those that are *new* here I thought I would start by telling you a little about myself and D-lish Scraps.

 This is me ^ my name is Amanda Lawrence and I am the owner of D-lish Scraps. I am a work from home mum of 2, Cody (5) and Ellah (21mths). My husband is very supportive of my business {even though it is rapidly encroaching on all his garage space} and can often be found packaging stock on the couch late at night.

D-lish began a little over 3 and a half years ago when I first noticed a hole in the market, for beautiful, yet low cost scrapbooking embellishments. D-lish is not your average online store, we stock almost entirely non-branded merchandise with prices that are a fraction of the cost you would expect to pay. Our stock is purchased in bulk and imported direct from the manufacturer. We do our own packaging right here on site which is another way we help to keep all these gorgeous 'must have' products affordable for everyone.

We stock a comprehensive range of paper flowers, washi tapes, charms, sequins, buttons, ribbons, twine and so much more! We compliment the range with my own hand made lines of flair buttons, Journal It's, flowers and bottlecaps.

I am always on the lookout for new and exciting products to bring to you the customer.

Today I have created a layout using some of my favourite D-lish products that I'd like to share with you all. Then stick around as I have a special offer and also an Aussie themed giveaway!

Layout: Hugs & Kisses (using Lovely paper from Authentique)


I began by creating my base. I inked the heart design through some punchinella (sequin waste) and then stamped over it with a script background stamp. I used a heart punch to take out a section and then stitched around it with some Cotton Twine and tied the loose ends to form a bow. As embellishment I added a Cherry Blossom and Resin Rose from the grab bag. The grab bags are excellent value, 25 pieces in each for just $1.


I decorated my large & with the same inking technique and the other words were simply misted to match. I also added another Resin Rose.


I did a second stitched heart, this time adding Washi Tape and a Vintage Valentine Flair button.


My large embellishment cluster has a Trellis Rose, large Carved Resin Heart, another Cherry Blossom and a Resin Bloom from the Big Blooms Grab Bag.


 I hope you enjoyed seeing my layout and as promised here comes the special offer and giveaway!

Today's special offer is as follows; simply place an order of $15 or more (not including postage) in the D-lish Scraps store before 5pm AEST this Sunday 27th January and add the code 'Be My Valentine' to the additional comment section when checking out. This special offer Valentine sampler pack will be added to your order for free!! It includes an awesome set of Vintage Valentine Flair buttons not yet available in store, 2 x pink heart paper doilies, 2 metres of cotton twine, 3 etched heart buttons, 2 x Vintage roses in crimson and brown and a 10 metre roll of mixed heart washi tape!


Now time for a givaway! In the spirit of Australia Day we have this True Blue Just Add Paper Kit to giveaway to one lucky reader this weekend. The kit contains all the yummy embellishments as pictured and is perfect for documenting your Aussie Day celebrations. To go in the draw, simply make sure you are a follower of this blog and leave a comment before midnight on Monday 28th January. The winner will be drawn here on the blog next week so be sure to pop back and see if you were the lucky winner!


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I really hoped you grabbed some inspiration or ideas for your next creation.

Happy Australia Day!
