Hi again all,
Tarrah here with you again, sadly for one last time, I want to thank Amanda so much for having me as part of the D-Lish team, I have loved every minute of it, she is great to 'work' for, so super friendly and lovely and generous beyond belief. 
I am really going to miss being part of the team, you will still see plenty of D-Lish goodies in my future layouts though, as I find it so easy to grab something from my basket of D-Lish to embellish with!!

So I decided to save my favourite layouts to share for last, which I actually created just this week!!
This one uses lots of Heidi Swapp products and the photo is one of my gorgeous sis in law and my not so gorgeous brother in the background........Heidi herself asked me could she share this layout on her FB page so of course I said of course I said YES!!! I was thrilled!!!

D-Lish goodies used:

This next layout uses a photo of my eldest son when he was just 8 months old.... He is going to be 8 YEARS old next scary!!
This layout was created especially for the Words or Whatever chipboard September challenge to use this quote 'Here's To Never Growing Up' as your title and to use WOW chipboard also.

D-Lish goodies used:

Red Chevron Bag
Flair-Just A Boy
Journal Its-Hello Cards
Journal Its-Bubble Words
Washi Tape Yellow Chevron

This layout uses lots of different My Minds Eye products and lots of Words or Whatever chipboard as well.....

Thank you so much for joining me today and for all your lovely comments while I have been on the D-Lish team. It's not good bye as I am sure I will see everyone around in scrap and internet land.
I hope I have inspired you in some small way to get into your creating, see you all around... Thanks again so much Amanda!!!

Final DT Inspiration - Michelle

Hi everyone

It is my last share here at D-lish Scraps and I can honestly say I am truly sad to be finishing up.   I've had an AMAZING time working alongside the other DT members and with Amanda.

Thank you so much for having me be part of the D-lish team !! 

Right so today I have 3 layouts to share with you.

My first layout is one I actually created for a New Zealand kit company where I was lucky enough to have get canvas cuts in my GDT kit.  Of course, I also added a few more D-lish details too:
Close ups:

My next layout has lots of gorgeous layering.  I really love the chevron bags in store but they are quite bright and to ensure it didn't out shine my photo I decided to use it under a vellum bag to add another pop of colour under my photo. I then added my journaling to the tag with the Happy Memories Spool top sentiment circle:
Close ups: 

My third layout features some of new style Freckled Fawn wood veneer arrows in store. 
Close ups:

I hope you have enjoyed my inspiration today!  Next up on the blog is Tarrah so make sure you check back for her blog post soon.

Final Design Team Share with Sharmaine

My final hoorah
My final D-lish blog post as part of the design team.
It has been an absolute honour to be able to share with you and I want to thank Amanda for being such a wonderful boss to work for.
I’ve loved D-lish since Amanda opened the metaphorical doors and I’ve been grateful for the opportunity to be part of such an amazing team.
I’ve just a few things to share with you before I leave though.
With Christmas fast approaching I made some Christmas tags, using Scrapmatts chipboard and products from D-lish Scraps.
They are simple tags. I covered the chipboard with some Washi Masking Tape - Vintage Newsprint and half a gold paper doily 
I then used some Motex tape, in my Dymo labeller, to add a sentiment
And my final creation to share with you…
Drum roll…
And have you seen the brand new Skipping 5 “Puffy Things”?
There are 12 different packs available in store!
Another very cool new thing in store are the wooden glasses!
And I backed my photo with one of the new Chevron bags
Available in black and pink
Very cool!
Well, thank you all again for allowing me to share my creations with you.
All the very best to the new D-lish team, can’t wait to see your amazing work.
Take care

Sharmaine here with my second last share as part of the D-lish team.
Are you loving all the new things Amanda has in stock at D-lish?
There are lots of cool things to find if you go strolling through the store.
Lots of things to have fun with!

Have you seen the Freckled Fawn Resin Shapes?
I just love the “Confetti


The Dyed Wooden Buttons
I love the “Funky Hearts


Both are just pure fun
Don’t you agree?!


Washi Tapes and Paper Doilies
Now that screams fun to me


And the motex tape
You know I have fun with that!

As seen in Jot Magazine

Another way I have fun on layouts
Is to add lots of fun embellishments.
A Dyed Wooden Butterfly


A Freckled Fawn Resin Star
Teamed up with the very popular tiny star sequins, found in the Mini Sequin Jar section, I used green


The Pick and Place Bows with a Fancy Edge are JUST GORGEOUS!
I teamed one up with a pin from the 5.5cm Heart Pins pack


Added loads of the new washi tapes
And used one of the Everyday Kraft Cards to type up this story


And tell this moment


Hope you have been having fun with your D-lish products.
Back later in the week with my final post as part of this amazing team.

Raquel Bowman - Design Team Share

Raquel's Blog: A Blessed Life 

Hello everyone,

Today I am here to share a few layouts I have created using my D-lish Scraps goodies. Sadly this will be my last Design Team post with D-lish Scraps before the new lucky Design Team members take over. 

I can truly say that I have LOVED every minute of being on this team! The support and generosity of Amanda and the other Design Team girls is like no other. PLUS, lucky me has been given the chance to play with absolutely gorgeous supplies every month. 

One of my favourite this has been oogling the gorgeous new supplies in store and then waiting with much anticipation for the goodies to hit my mail box. D-lish mail day always is such fun as the products seem to immediately inspire me to get creating. Here are few of my goodie box mail days. Doesn't it make you want to rush to the D-lish Store and fill your cart with such awesome embellies?!?

Anyways - time to share some creations!
My first layout is one I created for Jot Magazine. I was itching to use the gorgeous sequin heart and new canvas pick and place bows. To create the background of this layout, I actually typed my wedding vows onto plain cardstock in grey to coordinate with the colours of the layout and to suit the actual theme also. 

D-lish Products used:

Paper: White cardstock, Black Cardstock, My Minds Eye patterned paper, AC Amy Tangerine patterned paper, Glitz Design patterned paper.
Alphabet: Silhouette Studio cut files.
Embellishments: Websters Pages Transparency, Bitty Chevron Bag, Handmade Vellum tag, American Crafts glitter tape.
Other: Sewing Machine and white thread, Grey Gelato, Black india ink, Date Stamp, Black Archival Ink.

Here is a close up of the stunning sequin heart and also one of the natural mini pegs which I covered with a black glitter tape that I had in my stash.

Aren't these new 'pick and place canvas bows' just to die for!?! One of my fave embellies lately is a bow and these are so cute. I simply attached it with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I have also used white bitty blooms and a few Freckled Fawn enamel dots.

The second layout I have to share is another one I created for Jot Magazine. The D-lish goodies on this layout really finish it off, thats certainly what I love about them!

D-lish Products used:

Other Products Used:
Paper: White Card stock, Teresa Collins patterned paper, Carta Bella patterned paper, Fancy Pants patterned paper. 

Embellishments: A Piece of Cake Designs Cherry Flair button,  Carta Bella stickers, Studio Calico printables, Studio Calico wood veneer, sequins, Doily, paperclip and ribbon.
Other: Typewriter, Becky Higgins date stamp, Black Archival Ink, Sewing machine and white thread, Studio Calico Mint Julep Mister Huey Mist, Tim Holtz tiny attacher and staples.

I was aiming to keep this layout sweet and 'light, the D-lish resin matched my colourings perfectly. 

Can you tell how much I love the Pick and Place Canvas bows and the Freckled Fawn enamel dots!?!

The last page I have to share is one I created just for fun of my little girl. I just love love these photos. One of these photos is my absolute fave as she was clapping and just so happy. I love the others also as it shows how 'busy' she is all the time. She will never just sit there, there is always something she is playing with or getting stuck into, lol. 
For this layout share I want to show just how perfect D-lish Scraps goodies can finish off a layout. For this layout all I basically used was a selection of papers, an alpha sheet and my D-lish box of goodies. 
Here is how this layout came to be:
* I started by misting and using modelling paste on my background and allowing to dry. I then layered my papers, photos and added my title. 

* Then I added some machine stitching

* I then delved into my D-lish Scraps box of goodies in search of coordinating products. I know there is a lot there, I am truly addicted! 

* This is what I found to match. When I create I always dig through my stash to find embellishments that may work on the page I am creating.

*Then I started embellishing my page. 

The new Journal It's - Bubble Words are quite versatile. I used one for its intended purpose. And another one I cut off bottom so it formed an over and used it as a label.

* I planned to use the Mini Sequin Jar - Hearts - Hot Pink  and was going to create some kind of pocket for them. Then I had a wild idea of gluing them on individually. Lucky I had my Clever Sequin Pick-up Pencil 

* The pencil and a bit of glossy accents works a treat :)

Here is the finished layout :) 
D-lish Products Used:
Journal It's - Bubble Words 
Mini Sequin Jar - Hearts - Hot Pink 
Pick 'n' Place Bows - Fancy Edge 
Resin Shapes - Stars 
Enamel Dew Drops - Ombre Yellow 
Enamel Dew Drops - Ombre Blue 
Mini Two Tone Daisies Grab Bag 
Mini Roses - Red/White 
Wood Chips - Hearts 
Washi Tape - Triangle
Clever Sequin Pick-up Pencil

Here are some close ups of the completed page:
