Super Cool with Ros Aggett-Madley


Hi D-lish fans.  Sharing a page today featuring some of my favourite goodies.


My background is just some left over paints from another project that I scrapped across the page with a card.
The black marks are made with a big sharpie.
I used this to also colour the Wood Veneer Stars.


I took a couple of Written in the Stars Creative Cuts to use as the feature of my layout.
One I coloured with some NeoColor pastels and the other, I cut the word from to use as my photo frame.


I have also added a Flair Button and some Epoxy Hearts.



To finish it off I have heat embossed a sentiment from the Everyday Words Stamp Set.


Hope you've been inspired ♥

'so proud of you' by Mal

Hi all, Malinda here again with a share for the end of July.


I love using frames as a template and then using them later on on a page as a frame. Here I've used a Kinder Kreations chipboard frame that I used as a template and then used some of it on a page a while ago, well here I am using the rest of it on this page. I love how you can rip it into pieces and use it on multiple pages. A bit of paint and voila it's ready to go.



How cute is this camera embie? It's from the last years January- Summer Squeeze Just Add Paper Kit. It fit perfectly with the Say Cheese Paint Tab.

Before you ask, that black stuff is house paint, yes house paint. I love it on a page but I felt I wanted a bit more blue and some added dimension on my page so I added some of the blue coloured wire which I think is the best stuff ever. I love how it bends and folds into what ever shape you want and super easy to cut as well.

Lately my pages all have to have flowers on them and right now I love big flowers. Never thought I would say that lol. These black paper flowers are the best. 

Lastly a resin flower and some washi torn into rough small strips and I'm finished.



Happy scrapping.

Jam & Cram - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am back with my last share for July. This layout is inspired by one of the current cybercrop challenges in the Scrap Suite, by Amy Churchward. I love Amy's work, so she is so clever with mixed media. So Amy's challenge is to be inspired by food. Amy's original inspiration was scones, and I had this photo in my stash waiting to be scrapped, yes scones. It was a no brainer, lol.
Jam & Cream
I had a lot of fun with this one. The cafe we were at when I took this photo, is a vintage inspired little cafe, with lots of vintage items around it, and they do the best scones, it is what they are known for, the name of the cafe is Jam & Cream. 
Anyway, I decided to try to keep a vintage theme to the layout. I found in my vintage stash this page from an old magazine, with the words "made from wheat", and it was a perfect fit for the layout, along with the vintage lace and crochet doily. 
I was then able to embellish it perfectly with my D-lish Scraps products.
With this first cluster, I have used a paper doily, cut in half and tucked behind the photo. I have added flowers and leaves from the Love like this just add paper kit. To finish, I used Creative Cuts leavesflair button and ombre wordfetti strip of words. 
I love the overall effect of this layout. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

‘Lovely Day’ by Amy


Hi all! 

I hope you enjoyed your school holidays, either holidaying somewhere warm, cold, or simply being around home.

I was thrilled to be able to spend the school holidays with my boys. Given the nature of my work, I tend to work through the holidays, generally.

Fortunately, we had a gorgeous, sunny day – so ventured out to the seaside for the day! It was a relaxing day.


I thought that the Kraft paper would be best to compliment the photos here.

Behind the photo, I layered some hand-torn scraps of paper.
For the background, I used some modelling paste with the ‘Alpha Stencil’ from the D-Lish Scraps Store – and placed a roughly cut strip of Punchinella on top.


Behind the photo, I used a gold foil doily, as I love to use a bit of bling, when I can. 😊
To embellish the photo, I used the following items from the D-Lish Scraps Store: a flair, paper flowers, and a wood veneer title.
The teal-coloured twine behind the layers was used to wrap the ‘A Touch of Luxe’ JAP kit, by Amanda Lawrence.


For this small cluster, on the top right hand corner, I have used a flair, paper flower and some washi tape from this same JAP kit.
The gold washi tape was from a past JAP kit. The sequins scattered around the page were from my stash.
Overall, I am happy with how this simple but evocative page turned out.

Thank you for popping by.

See again in August!

Amy 😊

"Little Notes" by Jasmine

A few weeks ago my daughter left a little note for me.  
I had been at a function that day and she played netball then went to her Granny's for a sleepover.
She left this note to tell me they had won their game and that she shot 6 goals. 
It was their first win for the season so she was pretty happy.
Receiving notes like that just makes me warm and fuzzy inside.
Stages pass as the kids grow and you forget when something stopped. Like them jumping into our bed on a weekend for a snuggle.  Being older now, that has stopped.  But I can't remember when.
And little notes like this will stop.  She will stop writing them as she gets older, just like her brothers have.  Maybe I won't remember when she stops....which makes me sad.

So I created this page as a reminder to myself that I did receive little notes at one stage of her life.  
That yes it will stop but I can look at this page one day, pull out the little note tucked behind the photo and it will remind me of those precious notes I once received.



I have used a black paper doily, sequin bow, resin flowers,epoxy heart stickers, journal tags, paper flowers, flair button, stencil and alphabet stickers, string and butterflies which were used from previous kits.

So instead of getting wrapped up in what is on the page, I need to remind myself more about what story or memory I am creating about.... then all of the pretty stuff can be added later.

"Hello Sweet" by Anthea

I recently had the pleasure of attending one night at a retreat with some old (and new) friends in Victoria. 
 
It was so nice to see them again and get creative - however - my creative juices were just not flowing for some reason.  I think I started 3 different LOs before  deciding to just pick a picture that I love and just do a simple LO with that.  This was the LO that came from that photo. 
 
Now I know that the LO is very simple, but I love the way it came together with very little effort.  Other than the photo, the paint and the cotton - everything on here is D-lish.  I think this LO just goes to show that a little D-lish can go a long way.
 

My LO started with a swipe of paint across my little Gelli pad which I simply stamped on to my page.  I then scrunched up some black cotton and secured that to my page.  I then placed a purple lace doily at the back of my popped up photo.
 
I then placed the title, which is made simply of unaltered creative cuts on either side of the photo. 
The photo is mounted quite high, so the title also needed little bits of mounting foam to make it sit right.  I then added some enamel faceted dots in a matching colour around the photo.
 
 
 
  To finish it all off - I simply added a tiny bit more paint to the bottom right of my LO, cut up a journal card and secured that phrase.  A tiny purple pick and place bow was added to finish the whole LO.
 
 
Thanks for coming to look at my LO.  Whilst I know it is very simple - it is still a LO that I really like and I hope you have been inspired to try and create your own LO with lots of white space - it really is a technique that never fails to highlight a gorgeous photo. 
 
Till next time
Take care.
 
Hugs
 
Anthea

Sick Day | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
I'm back today to share my final July layout with you. 

This layout took a few sessions to complete, the background, stars and stitching were done before I finally came back to the embellishing a few weeks later.


I knew as soon as I bought the star paper that they were going to be fussy cut. I had the idea to do them in vertical rows with lines of hand stitching holding them all down. I began by roughly working out my design before adding some colour to the background using gelatos with the packaging technique. Once all that was in place I could set about the embellishing.


I created several layers under my photo using some patterned paper. I also dug into my D-lish stash and found a 5" lace paper doiley and a diagonal stripe bitty bag which suited perfectly. 
With so many papers stars and stitching in the background I needed to keep my embellishments fairly simple. I used a polka dot date tab under the top edge of my photo. Some wood veneer stars, a flair and faceted enamel dots finished off this area.


The arrow and heart wood veneer frame really helped draw your eye to the focal point of the picture, it also created the perfect space for my title to rest. This cluster was completed with another flair, wood veneer star and some more faceted enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my share today. I really enjoyed creating it even though it did take me a while ;)

See you next month!

Awesome, by Amanda H

 
Hello D-lish Fans!
 
July is approaching the end and today I have my last page share for the month.
 
For this page I used the June Just Add Paper kit - Game on. Great colours and with the add on pack of die-cut ephemera, this page was easy to create.
 
 
 
I used some mixed media on the background but then all other elements come from the kit.
 
This main cluster has an embroidered arrow, green bow, flair button and die cut pieces. I also layered the photo on some black cardstock and also the orange spotty bag from the kit.
 
 
In the top corner, for the title, I used the die cut "Awesome", layered with more die cut pieces and another flair button. I also love the cute little flag clip that comes in the kit.

 
In these next close ups, you can see more of the background. I used the stencil that came in the kit and added some texture with white gesso. While the gesso was wet, I added some ripped pieces of green tissue paper that came in the kit. I also added some strips of the cool thin washi tape from the kit. Lastly I added orange and blue splatters to match.
 
 
And a few star die cuts to finish too!


 
That's my page! Really you can do the quickest pages ever  - all you need to do is just add paper to the wonderful Just Add Paper kits.
 
Thanks for looking,
Amanda

Collect beautiful moments with Ros Aggett-Madley

Hello, this month its my turn to set a challenge in The Scrap Suite and it's all about scrapping someone special.  This photo features one of my nieces, Chloe, and my dad,  her grandad.


I've started with a paper doily, a creative cut and some punchinella.


The puffy gold heart is from a past kit.  I've placed this among a sequin bow, Little Birdie flowers, flair button and some fauceted enamel dots.


Finished off with an enamel heat.
Hope you've been inspired ♥

"April" by Mal


Hi all, 

So have you seen the latest CC challenges at D-lish?
Here's mine...Stars and Stripes...what do you think?

I wanted my page to be funky and masculine...this is my son getting player of the match in one of his first footy matches. I was so proud.



I started with a patterned paper background with some paste smeared across the page. I wanted to dull down the background a little so it wouldn't take over the rest of my page.

Once I layered my photo over some gauze I grabbed my D-lish embies in white and black and blue.

First I put a die cut linked squares under part of my photo and then took the awesome speech bubble die cut and just used the frame on my page.

 I also took some resin stars from a past JAP kit as well as some black sequins  and placed them around my page.


Last but not least I placed a flair button, one of the chalkboard month buttons in a frame and a journal tag, also from a past JAP kit


Make sure you check out the Cybercrop challenges, would love to see heaps of entries for my challenge.


 Happy scrapping....Mal xxx
