always an adventure | by Nicolee Cable

Hi all
I'm back to show you a layout that came together very quickly, mostly because of the stunning background paper.  It was perfect for this layout theme and I'm so happy with the result.

I didn't have to use any paint or ink, all I needed to choose was a few more pieces of patterned paper and the embellishments and hey presto - like magic, this layout was formed! (Oh how I wish they were all that quick and easy!)

I cut up some patterned paper into squares and rectangles and strips and then layered them all on top of each other.  I cut a beautiful aqua doilie in half, splitting it across the two different sides of the photo.  I then placed a kraft polka-dot bag to back the photo (and then proceeded to cover most of it up)!  LOL!  Oh well, I love creating with layers and this was just another layer.

I used some bakers twine, separated the threads and then screwed it up and placed it under the photo.

I cut some scallops into a piece of cork and used the negative side under the photo. Then I cut a piece of aerobar bubble chipboard in half and placed it under the photo too.

I stapled a few of the layers down and then added the tassel and the Little Birdie pearl petites flowers.
For the title, I used a mixture of chipboard word, handwriting and puffy alpha stickers

Then I added the other embellishments - flair button, wooden star button, stamens, enamel dots, resin flowers, faceted enamel dots, enamel heart, sequins and washi tape.

I hope you've enjoyed this layout and will give something similar a go yourself.

Here are the embellishments I used and you can find them at the store:

puffy alpha stickers
washi tape
twine (from JAP packaging)

Take care and I will see you around soon

"this is love" by Mal

Hi all, 
Did you see my Cybercrop page last week? Have you had a chance to give it a go?

What do you think?

I love it. A few different things for me on this page and I love how it turned out.

Firstly I used a D-lish box as my background, not cardstock or paper! How cool is that? Bit weird too hey ;)

Next was scrapping a sports photo, well sort of a sports photo. We are all massive Richmond fans in this family and were super excited when we made the grandfinal. Here are my kids with their favourite player Dustin Martin on a wall in Richmond.

So apart from the white gesso on the background I think everything else is from D-lish and a lot is from a past Just Add Paper kit.

First up I used a star stencil and some paste to create the star background in various places. The 5x5 stencils are the perfect way to add texture and depth to various places on your page without the need for a big stencil

Next I added some yellow punchinella torn into a random piece and then the string from a past JAP kit run under the photo and randomly on both sides of the photo horizontally along the page. Twine would work as well.

I chose my embellishments next, a star, some resin flowers, glitter dots in black and a few black hearts plus a big yellow flower.

Finally I stamped a few bits and pieces around the page and popped a paint chip this is love title on.

And that's it.

So my challenge for you this month is

Hope to see your entry over at The Scrap Suite on FB.
Happy scrapping....Mal xxx

'Summer' by Amy

Hello, it’s Amy here, for the last blog post for January. 

I hope you managed to squeeze in some crafty time during your summer break. I have created this ‘Summer’ layout for this month’s Cybercrop challenge
This photo was captured on the coast of Victoria, in Lorne.
I have used a combination of Kaisercraft beach-themed patterned paper. I then roughly painted some Heavy White Gesso on the paper to create a whitewash effect. 

Behind my photo, the layers consisted of Punchinella and horizontal-striped bags from the store. I also used some medical gauze. Around the sea shells from my stash I have used some coloured wire and a paper flower from the Little Birdie collection. The enamel shaped heart was also added here for a bit of colour and dimension.

I used the die cut embellishment from a past JAP kit. I inked it with some of the ColourBlast inks.
The wood veneer title ‘Summer’ was perfect for this page. I left it raw, as it was fitting for my theme.
Behind the title, I have used (from the store): coloured wire, Little Birdie flowers in the blue and white and Punchinella.


On the left-hand side, as pictured, I tore a strip of patterned paper then placed another paper flower from the Little Birdie collection. I adore these paper flowers – gorgeous! …and addictive!
As a final touch, I placed an enamel heart here. The blue was perfect to coordinate with my nautical theme.

Thank you for stopping by!

I do look forward to seeing your takes on this summer-themed challenge.

Ciao, Amy

"Today" by Jasmine Shea

Hello to you, and thanks for stopping in at D-lish Scraps.  

Today I am sharing a page that I created some time ago that I had only stenciled on the background and had left it as a 12x12.  
I have been creating more 8.5x11pages lately so I cut it down and then added my photo and lots of D-lish Scraps goodness to finish it off.

I have added in 


And lastly to frame my photo

Again my page is colour co-ordinated which makes it so much easier to find the right embellishments to match.

See you next time.

"Hello Summer" by Anthea

Hello all and Hello Summer!!!
 With the heat we have been having here (above 40 most days for the past few weeks) I thought I would add something bright and refreshing to your day. 
This photo is a few years old but an absolute favourite of my kids and some of their cousins hanging out in the pool. 
 I started off with a different background (a bluish and white background piece of paper) - but alas I destroyed it my smudging texture paste in places it was impossible to hide. I was going to switch to plain white cardstock only to discover I was clean out of that too....so ended up with a grey coloured background which I am not too too upset about.
I added some blue by adding texture paste through the D-lish splats and stains stencil - a perfect choice for this photo I think - and I then added some wavy blue washy tape to kind of represent the water ....  (I did say kind of!)
I had the "stay cool" flair in my stash and knew that I wanted to use it on my LO - so this ended becoming the basis for the LO.  The orange tissue paper from an old JAP kit was a perfect match for the flair, so I used that as my mat for my photo. 
The rest came together fairly quickly - I just picked some flowers and tassels that I thought would work well with the photos.  I have used a bunch of different paper and fabric flowers but all in the same colours. That gorgeous orange one (to your right) is from the Summer in Tuscany JAP kit. The big yellow flower comes without a centre - so I just popped a resin flower in there, I think it looks cute.   I then scattered some orange star buttons and yellow sequins over the page to give it a bit more oooph. I also placed a good old cap charm from a past JAP kit on the LO for good measure.
I still felt like it needed something more - so I tucked some punchinella and stamens in behind the clusters.  I really like how they make it all pop just a little bit more. 
For the last little bit I added the title. 
 I didn't have matching titles - so picked 2 different wood veneer  ones (the summer one is from the last JAP kit).  If you haven't got it yet - do yourself and favour and get it - it is stunning!  I decided to leave them raw for this LO - but painting them up is really an easy thing to do if you want to change the colour. 
Well that is it for now.  I hope you like my LO and I have inspired you to go and create something bright and fun too.
If you are trying to stay cool over the summer - may I suggest scrapping to fill in your time.  If you are looking for some inspiration and fun challenges with great prizes - don't forget to check out the scrap suite on Facebook.
Till next time.
Take care.
