DREAM, by Amanda H

Hi all,
 
Today I start with making a huge SHOUT OUT to the owner of D-lish Scraps - the lovely and talented Amanda Lawrence. There seems to be no end to her design ideas. Her products choices, eye for colour and ability to design means that EVERY month there is something new and wonderful at D-lish. We are so lucky!
 
My page today is focused on one of those products she designs - Creative Cuts. I do not have a fancy cutting machine - no time, space or money for one of those - so instead I rely on Amanda's Creative Cuts! There are so many designs. So many options. Including Unicorns.....
 
This beautiful unicorn Creative Cut inspired my page, which inspired my Cybercrop challenge over at The Scrap Suite!
 
 
Here is the challenge details from the Scrap Suite.
No automatic alt text available.
Can you create a unicorn inspired page?
 
Let's look at some close ups to see some of the details on the page.
 
 
The main focus of the page is the unicorn. I fussy cut shiny silver paper under the mane and the nose, and vellum under the head.
 
 
For the unicorn horn, I placed shiny glitter silver paper. Then I topped with resin flowers, Little Birdie flowers, pearl cabochons and D-lish enamel dots.
 
 
The Unicorn Dreams Creative Cut set also included the word "dreams" - which I used as DREAM, for my title; and some diecut stars, which also made the page. I sprinkled more pearl cabochons and D-lish enamel dots amongst this.
 
Alongside the photo, I created another cluster. I started with the silver Sequin bow and to this added: Little birdie flower, resin flowers, D-lish Scraps Flair button from Flights of Fantasy Just Add Paper KitD-lish enamel dots and a soft pink Cornflower.
 
Under the photo, I layered some vellum with a paper lace doily.
 
 
 
 
 Thanks for stopping by to get all the details of my page today! Have a happy unicorn day.
 
Amanda

"Our life" by Mal

Hi all, 

A quick share from me this week and when I say quick I mean this was a 15 min page for me and it only took that long because I had to wait for my background to dry :).
It was super quick because I simply ripped open a mini it from D-lish and used nearly everything from the kit on my page.



I love everything D-lish; everyone knows that - but what I love more is creating a page without having to think about what goes together and what fits or works.

I love KITS. I love the mini kits and I LOVE the JAP kits.

So D-lish mini kits are PERFECT for me...grab one and wham page done. LOL.
 
 
I would never choose these crotchet bows myself but after using them from the kit I love them.

Die cuts are another thing I don't normally choose myself and use on a page. I often find them hard to use, but these die cuts from the mini kits are the perfect size and great colour too.

Last but not least I love the small embies in the kits; a flair, a flag and I've added some D-lish enamel dots as well.


What do you think?
Happy scrapping...

Little Helper - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am back with my 2nd June share.
This layout I created, using a theme from the March cybercrop, monochrome layout. 


Of course, I had to choose pink as my monochromed theme. 
I started with the background that had been geli-plated then added texture paste through a  hexagonal stencil, and then a combination of sprays in different pink tones. 


I also added a bow from the Love like this kit bits and some of the new flower sequins.



Finally, the last cluster, has a flair button hiding at the top.


Pink is a great colour to work with. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

‘So Cool’ by Amy

Hi All.
 
Lucky me! I recently went on an awesome Scrapbooking Retreat with some wonderful people. I have been waiting to scrap this photo taken in the backstreets of the city of Melbourne. It’s worth walking through and checking out the fabulous street art.


First, I primed my page with clear Gesso, then splattered orange and blue ink around. After this dried, I used a permanent black ink and stamped randomly around the page.
Once the background was complete, it was time to layer the photo.

 

As pictured here, I trimmed strips of Punchinella and placed a blue mini paper bag behind the photo. In the store there, there is a huge variety of paper bags to choose from. I have trimmed down two words from the Journal It’s Minifetti, for subheadings. A favourite of mine – clear glass Cabochons – have been placed around the page.


From the fabulous limited-edition kits that Amanda placed in the store early this year, I have used the cutfile title and glitter pennant.
Both the wood veneer and embroidered speech bubble were from the past JAP kit – Boys Rule. A paper doily was also used: the orange was perfect to compliment the title.

 

In this small cluster, I have used a flair and surrounded with wire, D-Lish Dots and glitter stars, again, from the ‘Boys Rule’ JAP kit. I have also used some more clear glass cabochons.


Overall, I am pleased with this layout. I love the blue and orange combo!

Thank you for dropping by!
Ciao for now, Amy😊

"Love Like This" by Jasmine

I have to admit that none of my pages ever end how I had planned them at the start.
Like never.

If I start with a particular photo in mind, it never gets used.
If I have a theme in mind, it never gets used.
If I have certain colours in mind, they never get used.
If I have a particular idea in mind, it never gets used.

But that's ok.  
I am generally happy with my page in the end.

Today I am sharing a page that was going to be grungy, busy and about me.
Instead, it is pretty, simple and about me and hubby.

One thing that does always work with my pages, is by using D'lish goodies, my page always co-ordinates as you can see here. 

For this page, I began by using the stencil from the February 'Love Like This' Just Add Paper kit
I used yellow and pink inks to create a patterned background.
I then used a lot of pieces from the kit to embellish my page. 
It is a very simple yet effective page.

I know I have said it before but the Just Add Paper Kits are just such good value for money. 
There are so many pieces in each kit and because it all co-ordinates, a page can be created very quickly which is great when you have deadlines....wink wink.

"Stay Cool" by Anthea

Hi all again. 
 
How is everyone enjoying winter? It has finally kicked in here with some dreary and rainy days which means some quiet scrappy time for me.  The other day - I opened the blinds wide open (the sun was shining that day) and poured myself a wine and sat down for some well needed scrappy time. 
 
This was one of my creations; I didn't mean to channel my inner summer, but I love how it is so simple yet so bright and fun at the same time.
 
 
I started off by using some texture paste with my favourite D-lish stencil double mounted on circle stencil that I whipped up to make these really cool yellow circles on my page. I dried them in between each one with a heat gun to keep them clean looking.  I must say, the size of the D-lish stencils makes them ideal for double stencil technique - I encourage you to give it a go.
 
 
I then splattered three matching mists all over the page and added some random stamping to mess it all up.  (I couldn't have it too clean looking!)
 
I then added a bright yellow flower and a big vellum star with a resin glitter star from a previous JAP kit as my main cluster. You may notice that I only secured the vellum star with a dot of glue in the middle.  I did that because I like the way the star kind of flares up and creates more texture. 
 
 
I then added some  more vellum stars (that I got in a mini kit) and some sequin stars that came in the same  JAP kit that the big glitter star came from. 
 
To finish, I cut up a mini journal tag to tuck behind the photo to create my title.
 
 
That was it.  Like a said, simple, but I think effective.
 
Hope you enjoy.
 
Hugs
Anthea

There's Always Room for Ice Cream | Amanda Lawrence

Hey hey D-lish fans!

Today I am sharing my second designer project for June. This layout is a photo taken Easter last year when we went to Eat Street here in Brisbane. If you haven't been, GO! The best food and atmosphere and better still, it's great for the whole family. Kombi Alley is definitely a highlight after a good meal ... after all ... there's always room for ice cream! 


I have to admit, this is not my usual colour combo but I'm really happy with how it turned out. When I bought the papers I loved that floral and for some reason chose red and yellow to compliment it. I started my background with some red and yellow gelatos and the packaging technique. Once dry I added some stenciled hearts with white gesso for a soft look.


I built up lots of layers under my photo for interest using a bitty bag, lace paper doiley and various bits of patterned paper. For my embellishing I used some paper flowers, flair, resin flowers and glitter enamel dots. I also used a polka dot date tab which I layered behind my photo as well.


My main cluster used a red cabbage rose as a feature which I surrounded with a repeat of elements as before. Finally, for my title, I used some red puffy alphas.

I hope you were inspired by today's share!

Till next time, 
Amanda x

London, by Amanda H

Hello D-lish fans!
 
When I was in London last year, I bought some cute badges, including the double decker bus in the rain. This badge seemed perfect for the photos of me on the double decker bus, and indeed, in the rain. The badge was red and blue - which called me to raid my red and blue stash of D-lish Scraps embellishments.
 
Under the photos, I used a Paper lace doily. Maybe you have not tried it, but they are really easy to colour with your favourite sprays or inks or paints. I added some strips of washi tape, raiding my washi tape collection that grows each month from the Just Add Paper kits. Then I layered my photos on top of this with D-lish embellies on either side!
 
For the left cluster, I used a paper leaf, rosebuds, resin flower, coloured wire, glitter dots and some sequin strands.
 
On the right side, there is the bus button, as well as more of the same elements repeated. Also here is a Little Birdie flower I have saved from my stash.
 
Along the top of the page, I repeated strips of washi, some wire, sequins, glitter dot, resin flower and rosebud, with a little journal tag.
 
For the title, I incorporated alphabet stickers, with a word from a Paint Chip tab.
 
So, that's it from me this week! Happy scrapping!
 
Amanda

You are amazing by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi, thanks for joining me today. 
I'm sharing with you my interpretation of this month's inspiration board. 

Again,  this page started with a gelli printed background.  The two photos on the page address identical, I just printed 2 different sizes and decided to use them both.

I have used some minifetti as my title.   One piece on top which I cut a little tail,  another the words which i popped underneath and another little tail on the top side of my photos. 
 
 
Here is a reminder of this month's inspiration board.

 
Now for some close ups!
 

I coloured some stars from the Boys Rule kit. 


Around the page I've scattered some star epoxy stickers and an enamel heart.   A mini peg had been added to look like it's holding it all together. 


A few enamel dots have been popped around the page. 



Hope you've been inspired 💙
