"Fave photo" by Malinda

Hi all,

Mal here with my lastest page.

I did this page last weekend when attending Scrap and Chat Retreat in Melbourne.

I've used lots of D-lish goodies on my page such as this wood veneer large star and the coloured wire (which I love because you can make it in to so many shapes).
I've also used punchinella under a couple of layers, in blue.

This awesome callout in black was from a recent JAP kit and I loved it so much I used it as a frame, cool hey.

If you know me you know we just bought a house in Sydney, after selling our supposed forever home in Melbourne and this is now my fave photo of my house, so far. I just had to use the ombre wordfetti as my title.

Adore, with Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi everyone, thank you for joining me again with another share.  
Today I have another page that was started as a gelli printed page.

I decided to use a black and white photo on this one for a more dramatic and monochrome look.  

I started my cluster with some Punchinella and Wordfetti, sort of faux joining it together with a Wooden Peg.

For my title I used a Chipboard Word.  I have heat embossed this with a couple of colours.

Under the bottom corner of my photo I have tucked in a piece of Doily which I also heat embossed and a Creative Cut.
A few D-lish Dots are scattered around the photo.

Hope you've been inspired.

Sunday Best - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, today is my last share for this month, a cute little vintage layout.
I had this photo in my stash, a family photo from when I was a little girl, taken one morning after church. This was back in the 70's, and my mother was so glamorous with her hat, my father so dapper in his suit, my sister and I once again dressed like twins, and my brother in his little homemade suit as well. All of us except Dad, were wearing home made clothes, most probably made by my very clever grandmother.
Sunday Best
So I wanted to continue with the vintage feel of this layout. The papers felt to me like they were right for a vintage inspired layout, with that mix of mustard and pink and multi patterned. 
My first cluster shows creative cuts which I have coloured gold, enamel dotLittle Birdie petite pastel flower.

The next cluster features paper doily, flair button, and pastel petal flower.
The last cluster includes creative cuts leaves, which I left raw, Little Birdie tie dye flower, and a pink bow from a past kit bit
I love the vintage feel that was created, yet giving it a modern edge. Creating this layout has made me feel a bit nostalgic for times gone by, but that's the great thing about scrapping our memories.
Until next time, happy scrapping.

‘Adore U’

Hi All, this is my last share for Winter! …and Spring is just around the corner!! (One of my favourite seasons).

I have here a layout with an entirely different format-8x12! Yes, something different to add to my scrapping repertoire. The photo is of my eldest Joshua drinking an Iced Matcha Drink whilst lunching on Japanese cuisine. (One of my favourite cuisines).

To begin with I trimmed down a piece of 3”x12” sheet of patterned paper from my stash - and adhered it to the left of the white cardstock. I then randomly splattered Distress Ink mixed with water over the white cardstock.

For the layers behind the photo I used a combination of scrap papers and a D-lish Scraps paper doily. I inked the paper doily with distress ink mixed with water. After I dried it, I put all the layers and the photo down as shown here.

Surrounding the photo from the D-lish Store I have used a wood veneer title, D-lish Dots, Washi tape, paper flowers and a die-cut journal card; and for the date - a past JAP Kit.


As pictured here behind the photo I have used a piece of satin ribbon from my stash and peach fabric pennant from the Limited-Edition Kit. The grey } bracket die-cut was an emphera from the ‘Game-On’ JAP Kit. I totally loved this kit and got so much out of it and still have more left - happily so!


Finally, over the top of the stamped semi-circle, as pictured I used D-lish dots, a resin flower and wood veneer hexagon from the ‘Game-On’ JAP Kit.

Thank you for dropping by to check out this simple 8x12 page.

I hope it leaves you feeling inspired to scrap a page of different dimensions!

 Ciao for now,

Amy 😊

"Santa" by Jasmine

Our August Cybercrop is now live and ready for you to play along with at D-lish Scraps, The Scrap Suite.
There are 4 new great challenges for you and I look forward to seeing what you create.

My challenge for you this month is to 
"Make it Memorable"

I would love you to add a piece of memorabilia on your page like this gorgeous Santa I have used on my page.  
My daughter drew this for me a few years ago and it has sat in my scrap stash knowing that I wanted to use it on a page.  
Isn't that what scrapbooking is all about? 
So what do you have laying around that you can use?

And some close ups to show you the gorgeous D-lish detail 

 I have added the following:

Have fun scrapping.

"I Wish I Could" by Anthea

Hi all. 

Today I am sharing  some more detail of the layout that I did for this month's CC.

My layout is based around a picture of my kids from quite a while ago. I love the looks on their faces and wish I could go back in time as these moments were so precious to me. 

The title for my layout comes from a favourite song of mine by Colin Raye. It is called "I wish I could". This is actually my special song for my gal, but I decided to use it for both my kids on this page.

I started with my picture and some strips of coordinating papers. I sewed the strips on messily and tucked my photo in behind them. 

I then used some strips of paper behind the chipboard jar from an old JAP kit. I clustered some D-lish flowers and a D-lish flair button around the jar and tucked some leaf die cuts behind the photo for more texture. 

I then added some old D-lish puffy alpha stickers for my title. To complete the LO I added some hand written journalling and a blue sequin bow to the top of my photo.

My challenge to you is to create a LO that includes some song lyrics either as your title or in your journalling or both.

You can share your page on the Scrap Suite to be in the running for a special JAP kit.

I look forward to seeing your pages. 

Till next time. 
Take care.

Gum Boots & Hula Skirts | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
Today I have my final share for August which is my sample layout for one of the cybercrop challenges that was released last Friday over in The Scrap Suite group on facebook.

My challenge is to be inspired by the provided sketch. This is the layout that I made from it.

The layout began with lots of paper layers, with some doilies and a bitty bag sandwiched in between.

I used several types of paper flowers to create some clusters around the page. I also added some resin pieces, canvas bow and stitched on some buttons for some contrasting texture.

I then used a Journal It card to record my memories before slipping it into the bag behind the photo.

Here's a look at the sketch that it all began from. I'd love to see your take on it too!
All the details can be found over in our facebook group; The Scrap Suite.

See you next month!

"Shine" by Amanda H

Hi all,.
There are new challenges over at The Scrap Suite for the month, and I set one of them. So today I am sharing the full page and all the details.
I have gone with a recipe - lots of simple ingredients to throw together! Seriously, we could all do this challenge many times over with our stash! lol
No automatic alt text available.
I started this page with some Creative Cuts and I glued them to the background and painted white gesso over them (Paint - check). I was also able to add some extra texture to the background by using the gesso through a stencil. With the gesso seal, I was then able to add some pink and gold water colours - painted and splattering and drying them so the colours highlighted the creative cuts on the background.
With the background done, I then built up the layers around the photo.
I did rely on some pieces from the limited edition Mini Kits (now sold out). This included the pink heart diecut frame (Hearts - check) which I layered under the photo with some tissue paper.
In bottom left cluster, I made the big flower (Sakura Bloom) the feature, and combined it smaller flowers (eg. pastel petals and green tara) (Flowers - check). I also tucked in some Stamen, and D-lish Dots -enamels. You will also see a pink crotchet bow - also from a limited edition kit - but seriously, Amanda needs to make these all the time!
Throughout the page, you will see vellum butterflies- I took these from a past kit and handcut them.(Butterflies - check).
I repeated elements all around the heart frame.
More stamen, pastel petals and enamel dots. 
I also included a pink circle Journal It in the bottom corner.
That's it for today! Gets busy with this recipe challenge this month!

A layout, with Ros Aggett-Madley

Hello everyone, hope you enjoy what I have to share today.

It's started with some gel printing on a piece of black card.
I have used a Kinder Kreations chipboard frame and heat embossed it with Colour Blast embossing powder in colours that matched my background.
This set comes with 2 round pieces and some loose flowers.

To embellish my photo cluster I have layered some of the chipboard flowers, a couple Colour Me Cuts - Butterflies, which I chose not to colour and some Sequin Flowers.  There is also a piece of paper doily tucked under the big butterfly.

To finish off I've added a few Faceted Enamel Dots.

Hope you've been inspired.

"So many reasons to smile" by Malinda

Malinda here with a share of a page I did a while ago. I

If you follow my stuff (as I know so many of you do) then you'll know I start with my background and then layer and layer and layer and then add embellishments and somewhere along the way I decide on the photo I will use. This page I did most of this but the photo was chosen pretty early and I knew I wanted a very girly page as the photo is of my two girls with their only girl cousin. Easy decision then to use every PINK! 
With that important decision made I pulled out pretty much all the pink D-lish products I had...and there were a lot plus a few white embellishments.

My background was done in two stages...firstly using white punchinella I misted over the punchinella using it as a stencil and then used it as a stamp so you get the positive and negative pattern of the punchinella. How cool is that???!!!

Second stage was a few swipes of Dylusions that hot pink colour and then I added messed up, cut up, pulled apart pieces of plasterer's tape; I love that stuff. 
After matting my photo on some patterned paper (yep I used patterned paper lol) and some pink cardstock which I inked (again I never ink but I did this time) I placed my photo and started embellishing.

I like using the punchinella that I've used as a stencil somewhere on my page. It takes on the colour from the misting and is another layer and I fee, ties the background in to the rest of the page.
As I said earlier I wanted a very girly, feminine feel to the page with a bit of whimsy through it, so I gathered flowers, pip berry stems, tassles, buttons, anything pink or white and started adding.

I'm loving wire at the moment. It gives structure as well as colour and texture to a page. The pink coloured wire is great for folding, bending, whatever you want to do it (and heaps of wire for only 50c that's soooo cheap).

So I intertwined the coloured wire and the white pip berry stems from left to right across the page over the plasterer's tape with some loops and bends. That's the first time I've used the pip berry stems on a page and I love them. Easy to cut off exactly how much you use and easy to bend into whatever shape you want. I'll be using them alot.

Time to add my bits and pieces, all the special pieces from D-lish that make my page pop.
The new suede tassels are not something I have used before, but I love the extra depth and texture they give to the page, another thing I will use more of.
flair button, who doesn't love them??? This one was from a past JAP kit, perfect colour for this page.
A few flowers, three of course, this time the Forget Me Nots looped around the wire and glued down.
Can't forget some (again three lol) pink enamel dots (but no doodling this time) in a triangle formation.

Last but not least a title. I'm not into big titles. I like to use a small title, like a saying.
I keep using the ombre wordfetti for my titles. So many sayings and all the colours of the rainbow. I've got them all, I love them.

A few sprinkles/drops of black, white and pink inks and I'm done.

Thanks for visiting. Go and get some of that wire and those pip berry stems from the shop now. They are gorgeous.
