Awesome by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi there,
Thanks for joining me today 💙

Today's page started with a stamp and some water colouring.

Poking under the top of my photo is a piece of doily.  I'm a big fan of tearing these into pieces and using small bits.

On to of this I've put a sequin bow.

Scattered around my page is a splattering of sequins and resin flowers.

Finishing off is a stamp from the Everyday Words set.  I stamped on some black card and heat embossed some white embossing powder.

Hope you've been inspired 💙

beYOUtiful by Mal

Hi all, 
Mal here with a share of a page I've done that's pretty simple but I think rather beYOUtiful and uses lots of D-lish.
What do you think?

After I did my background, I decided I wanted a small photo and a large title. So I went to my D-lish stash and found the perfect title...the raw wood veneer beYOUtiful from a past Just Add Paper kit

I coloured it with a few different mediums until I was happy with the colour and the look.

I then took some plain silver coloured wire and twisted it and gave it some kinks and placed it around my photo and across my page.

I then took three flowers, yes two of one kind, which were actually cream paper flowers which I coloured with mist and a completely different one, a resin flower and placed them on either side of my photo. 
I buy lots of flowers, cream or pink or white or yellow and then colour them...pretty cool to make them match your page.

Finally three silver glittery enamel hearts - how gorgeous are they - placed in a triangle to draw the eye towards the photo.

I know it's simple, but I'm all about simple and with D-lish stuff, all I have to do is add a few beautiful embellishments and I'm done.

Happy scrapping...Mal xxx

"Cherish Family" by Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone,

I am back with my second share for April. 
This photo was taken on my Mother in laws 89th birthday. It is a lovely photo
of her surrounded by her grandchildren, so I wanted to scrap it for her. 
I chose to pull the purple out of the photo, and I really struggle with purple.
However, it was really the right choice for this layout.

Teaming the purple with silver worked really well. So I did a bit of mixed media
stenciling with some silver texture paste and picked out papers that would compliment this.
I embellished the layout using some punchinella, small bits of it around the page. I have also used 

My title was made using this Memory Maze chipboard mini word.

I am pleased that the simplicity of this layout, really makes the photo centre stage, but the pop of purple really lifts it.
Until next time, have a good day and happy scrapping. Sandra.

'Smile' by Amy C

It was a sunny Sunday afternoon. Master Samuel had disappeared into the backyard,… on a mission. His mission was to gather a bundle of spiky seedpods from the liquid amber tree.
He then lined up his collection in one row, to measure it: “4.02 meters, mum!”

I printed the photo in black and white to make good use of the textures (and the smiley face) in the photo. Black and white also gave me the freedom to choose a minimalist black and yellow theme and allow the yellow of my theme to ‘sing out’.

To prepare my page, I simply applied some large and small splatters of yellow and black ink.
Then, using a stamp with a permanent ink, I stamped some butterflies around the page. Next, it was time to adhere my photo and journaling down.

Pictured here, I was able to use a combination of recent mini-kits and other goodies from the store. These are fabulous, and full of gorgeous goodies!
I have used a flair, patterned paper (butterflies) and washi tape.
The title from the kit is a ‘creative cut’… these come in various shapes and forms from the D-Lish Scraps store.

In this cluster here, I used washi tape from a past ‘Just Add Paper’ (JAP) kit. The date tag was from the mini kit. I have adhered a shaped wooden button on top of the fabric.
The Charms Creations heart was complete with a black resin butterfly from the store.
After the completion of this simple page, I still have the remnants of the mini-kit… perhaps I could make some cards? Or even another page?
These kits really are excellent value!
Here is another close up of my page!

Thanks for stopping by!

"Rock Stars?" by Jasmine Shea

Here to share a page with you today that I created for our April Cybpercrop Challenge at The Scrap Suite.

My best friend (who lucky for me is now my Sister In Law) and I decided we would take up guitar  lessons in about Year 11.  We also played flute along the way with the school band....  Let's just agree that music wasn't our strong point.  We stuck to Maths and Science instead.

But I still love this photo anyway and have scrapped it for you as part of my challenge to create a Monochromatic page.  

And a bit of a closer look at the gorgeous green D-lish Scraps pieces 


So don't forget to head over to The Scrap Suite and look at the four fabulous challenges to play along with.  

I look forward to seeing your creations.

"You Rock My World" by Anthea

Hi all.
Today I am sharing with you a LO of me and my gorgeous gal.
I started off by smearing some texture past through a D-lish stencil - I just wanted a little bit sneaking out from my photos but decided it wasn't quite enough when I sat my photo on top of it, so to make it stand out a bit, I drew around a few edges in black to make them pop a bit more.
I then cut some coordinating papers into strips of paper - roughed them up a bit and sewed them down as a backing to my photo. For the most part I left the strands of thread hanging wild and free as I like how it grunges up the page a bit.  I also laid down some strips of washi tape that you can see sneaking through in some of these photos.  This particular tape came from a past JAP kit
I then placed my flowers  (I have a cabbage rose, magnoliarustic blooms and a flower from a past JAP kit) into little clusters in shade of green and orange.  I also placed in a cute little black and white polka dot bow for good measure.  
I wasn't really sure at this stage what my title was going to be - but I spied the 'You Rock' creative cut in my stash and decided that the bold black title would look really funky with this LO and went for it. This creative cut is from the recent, 'Boys Rule' JAP kit.  I love these creative cuts - they are always perfectly cut and I love how parts of your page peak through the titles and patterns on them.   I added the strip journaling as I wanted to add more to the title but in a subtle way.
As you can see I did the same on the smaller photo, but added a bitty bow instead. 
I was pretty happy with how this turned out in the end.  It was simple (except for the sewing because I really suck at sewing) but fun and bright at the same time.
I hope you like too.
Till next time
Take care

Happy Days | Amanda Lawrence

Hey D-lish fans!
As most of you are aware, earlier this month we had to slightly postpone our 'Peach Twist' JAP kit release as it fell on Easter Sunday. When I found myself completely ready for release 4 days early, temptation got too much and I 'helped' myself to a kit for a play.

The colours and elements in this kit were totally swoon worthy ... how was a girl to resist?!

This is what I came up with ...

Everything used on the layout came from the kit with the exception of media and papers of course.
I began by using the awesome cobblestone mini stencil in the kit with some texture paste. Then to add some colour I used some glimmermists applied with the packaging technique and a little water. Lastly a few splatters with the same colours and my background was done.

I mounted my photo on some lime patterned paper and found two shades of peach scraps from my stash which I tore up and added a few layers here and there. I also added the lime doiley as a layer under the photo too.

Next up was to embellish! I literally pulled everything out of my kit, I cut all the stems off the flowers, cut up the journal tags ready and then went to town placing them on my page.

This cluster had one of the flair, a large white flower, lime cherry blossom, peach forget-me-not, lime resin, two of the wood veneer leaves and one of the glittery resin hearts.

I made a smaller cluster with the 'Happy Days' wood veneer as my title. This was layered on the large journal card. It used the butterfly flair, another lime cherry blossom, peach forget-me-not, the white resin flower, peach tassel and finally another glittery resin heart. I also cut up some of the journal tags and layered them under the left hand edge with a few staples.

This final cluster included my journaling, the wood veneer butterfly disc and then the remainder of the embellishments I had left over. 

Finally I added a few strips of the washi to the top right and bottom left of my photo. I also added the date journal tab here and the tiny butterfly which I fussy cut from the other half of the journal tag I used earlier. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my page today and was able to draw some inspiration for using your own 'Peach Twist' kit. If you don't already have one, be sure to pop over to the store and grab yours. They're just $10 each and as you can see, are excellent value for money!

Till next time, 
Amanda x

"never give up", by Amanda H

Hello again!

Another month passing us by and another inspiration board to get us creating.

I loved this month's Peach Twist - I have always loved shades of pinky-orange and adding lime green is brilliant.

Here is the board that inspired my page:

My first step was to glue some Wood stars {taken from the Boys Rule JAP kit} across the page. Then I painted a white panel also across the page, including painting over the stars. Then I painted some lime green Colour artist inks to highlight the stars and add some splatters.

Next, I raid my D-lish goodies to find peach and green embellishments.

I had a few pieces from my Peach Passion Mini kit - the bow and diecut word, so these were a perfect match. Also added is some paper flowers, paper leaves, stamen, Journal Its from the Monochrome Journal Packs, and the lovely Lace butterfly.

I also used a green heart from the new Enamel Hearts Rainbox Mix pack.

I used "never give up", cut from a Journal It pack from a past Just Add Paper kit. It seemed like an appropriate title for the photo of my husband and I celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary.

In the top corner, I included some more of the same: green heart sticker, Journal Its, paper leaf, stamen and a paper flower.
But I also found a Bitty Bow Clip and Flair Button in perfect colours to match.

And that's how my page came together!
Thanks for looking!

Blessed by Ros Madley-Aggett

Morning D-lish scrapers 💙 so fabulous to be back again.

Am starting my return to this awesome team with my take on this months Inspiration Board, Peach Twist.

I started my layout with a piece of patterned paper and smooched on some inks in the pretty mood board colours.

My photo cluster was started with a paper doily.  To this i have added my photo, some resin flowers and some enamel glitter dots.

One of me favourite D-lish Scraps goodies is a sequin bow, one definitely had to be put on this page

The 3 little banners under my photo are from the Everyday Words stamp set.  These have been stamped with the same inks I used on my pages background.

Thanks heaps for joining me today.  I'm so excited to be back and hope you all get some time to join us this month with this gorgeous Inspiration Board.
