"hello" by Mal


Hello, it's me!


Today I'm sharing with you a page I did a while ago but still one of my favourites.





This page uses a heap of D-lish stuff...so many bits and pieces on one page.

 
I started with a doiley, yes a doiley, this was from a JAP kit, but there are heaps in the store. Then layered a wood veneer frame with the photo in the top corner.
I liked how my background was quite linear so I wanted to use a variety of circles on the page so I added a journal spot, cut in half under each side of the doiley and then some white wire in circles, 
 

Next of course were the flowers, fabric ones today, two on the right and one on the left,


 To balance that out I added a beautiful blue bow, (how cute are they?) and then the remember this wordfetti.

Finally some blue gems  and a few stars, raw of course. Both were also from a JAP kit



Everything here is in the shop, click on the links to find them.


Happy scrapping

Crazy about you by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hello, guess how i started this page 😀 a gelli printed background.  Playing with a colour that is not my norm, purple. 


This page features one of my little princesses.  I've popped a paper doily under my photo and a mini peg there to hold it together


You can also see here a sequin bow, some flowers, a flair button, enamel dots,  an enamel heart and some sequin flowers. 


I've also used some loose sequins and bitty blooms.


Hope you've been inspired 💙

Pyrenees - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, this is my last share for June, and isn't it scary that's half of the year gone.
I was quite excited to do this layout, another page for my album from my France trip 5 years ago.
We didn't get to visit the Pyrenees Alps, but looking from a distance, I so do want to go there.



So I created the background with stencil, texture paste and stamping, a spray of blue, my favourite way to create backgrounds. 
Embellishing this layout was fun, using punchinellabitty blooms, and Kinder Kreations chipboard chevrons from the together pack. I also added Creative Cuts pie charts. The main feature is Pip berry stems which I have used to frame the photo.


The next cluster features carnations, and a wild rose


The last cluster has a flair button and kraft journal it's.


One day I will get my France album finished, lol.
Until then, happy scrapping.

A ‘Deck-ade’ of cards! by Amy


Recently (with an idea in mind) I purchased the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit with the fabulous bundle deal!
My sister has a young family with never-ending birthday parties, so I figured a bag full of 10 handmade cards from 1 to 10 would be ideal as a gift.


All of the cards consist of coloured A4 cardstock and patterned paper from my stash (and a brown paper bag as well). You could improvise and use a nice tin instead, if you have one around.


In making cards 1, 3 and 4, as pictured, I have used the following items from the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit and bundle deal: mini stencil (offset boxes), journal cards, mini wood veneer hexagons, die cut ephemera pieces, and a paper clip flag. From the D-Lish store, I have also used D-Lish dots and sequins.
For card 2, the paper bag is the orange polka dot bag from the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit and I have decorated it with a journal card from this collection. The wooden button is from the store.


Counting on to cards 5, 6 and 7…
From the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit and bundle deal I used the following items: die cut ephemera pieces, flair, arrow-shaped patch in royal blue, mini stencil (offset boxes), and journal cards.
I am a fan of D-Lish Dots, so of course, they had to be added! (highly addictive! 😊 )

 With card number 7, the sentiment ‘happy’ is from the Creative Cuts Collection in the store. I have inked it black, to allow it to stand out.


Next with, cards 8, 9 and 10…
First, with number 8, I have used a Black Polka Dot bag from the store and decorated it with: journal card, lime mini bow, and, again, die cut ephemera pieces from the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit. The vellum polka dot stars were from a past JAP kit.

With cards 9 and 10, I have used flair, wood veneer words, journal cards, mini wood veneer hexagons and more ephemera die cuts.



With the gift bag, (I couldn’t resist) I decorated it before placing all the handmade cards inside it for my sister.
I trimmed the orange card, decorated with some more die cuts, a flair and wooden hexagon, and tassel and twine from the ‘Game-On’ JAP kit. The black speech bubble is from the creative cuts collection in store. It was awesome fun, making this bundle and the value of this kit and bundle deal is excellent!

Thank you for dropping by,

Amy😊

"Love U" by Jasmine

Titles.  
Gee I struggle with them.
From where to put them on my page to what I actually want to say.
I must admit that these days, I just go with something quick and easy.  
I used to sit there and ponder and search until I found the right thing.
For this page I wanted something quick and it needed to be white.... and I just happened to have a D'lish Scraps Creative Cut tile from a past kit so I used the Love and cut out the U from Laugh and there was a title.  It explains itself.

My page was created for this month's Cybercrop Challenge over at  
My challenge for you is to create a page using "Holidays" as your theme.
We all have plenty of holiday photos so I would love to see your creations this month using some of your snaps.

I have kept this page pretty simple and used a large doily as a feature on the background. Then I created two clusters either side of the photo using lots of D'lish goodness including



The D'lish girls have created some other awesome challenges for you this month so make sure you pop over and check them out here.

"You and Me" by Anthea

My Challenge for this months CC is currently running
 at the Scrap Suite
 
My challenge this month is simple - you need  to scrap a photo of YOU!  I don't mind if there are a 'few' others in the photo with you but YOU must be in the photo and a key player in the photo.

I started with a photo of my hubby and I from earlier this year knowing that I wanted the photo to be the  main feature of the page, so I kept the whole LO very simple.
 
 
I started with some very messy stencilling with a purple texture paste through another favourite D-lish stencil.  I wanted to add some more colour to this and decided simply to add some watercolour pencil lines here and there around the stencilling.  It is all very messy, but that is what I was wanting.
 
I then added flicks of black mist and some black stamping.  I then scattered these gorgeous flower sequins over my design. Somehow I had never seen these in the shop before - now that I have I think I will be using them...a lot.    They come in other colours but I only picked out the ones that I felt worked with the LO.
 

 
I then added my title which are 'vintage D-lish' alphas.  I can't believe I still have some in my stash.
I didn't have an & so I cut up some letters that I am not likely to use and created my little + with that way.

 
Then to finish my LO I simply placed a D-lish sequin bow in the corner.
 
 
That is it.  Just a quick, fun and simple LO that I am pretty happy with.
 
Thanks once again for looking and I really hope you give my challenge a go.  It will be great to see photos of everyone and put a name to the face and you have the chance to win a fabulous prize JAP kit.  It is a win-win situation.  If you don't win and you want a gorgeous JAP kit - don't forget to check out this months gorgeous kit here.
 
Till next time.
Take care.

Mr Cool | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
Today I'm here to share my cybercrop challenge that was released over in the Scrap Suite last Friday.

My challenge is to create a layout with a photo that is not your usual square/rectangle. For my sample I have used two photos, one colour and one black and white. The subject in my photo was fussy cut from the colour pic and layered using foam dots onto the black and white one to make it pop!

Here's my layout ...


I knew I wanted a mixed media background for this layout so went to town with some gesso, watercolours and stamps. 


I created lots of layers on this one for interest using, bitty bags, coloured doilies and some speech bubble die cuts from a past 'Just Add Paper' kit.


I also tucked in a polka dot date tab to add my date.


I used some wordfetti strips here and there as well as some wood veneer pieces which are also from past kits.


A few flair, some scattered buttons and washi tape and the layout was done.
I'm so happy with how this one turned out. I hope it inspires you to create your own layout soon.

Happy Scrapping!

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
