Hello There - by Renee Iveson

I am very excited to share the layout and card I created for the September Cyber Crop challenge by Sandra : Pet-itude!

This layout features to looooong skinny snoot of my furry baby Bambi the greyhound.

I have included lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies into this creation. I love the 5 x 7 bags, as you can probably already guess I use them quite a lot as a base for my photos.

Again I have added in my absolute favourite D-lish product wire as it adds another texture, colour and feel to any creation. 

You can find the details about the current Cyber Crop on the Scrap Suite page HERE on Facebook.
You will have to be quick to get your entries in for this cyber crop as it ends today. Keep your eyes out for the next one though, with another lot of inspiring challenges!

I have used the D-Lish Bitty Bow clip, paper doilies, puffy hearts, paper flowers and leaves and finished off with sequins and Heart Cabochons.

When ever I finish a layout I always create a card with the scrap pieces left over and one of the great things about having a stash of D-Lish Scraps goodies is that it is really easy to quickly pop a card together with cute coordinating bits and bots.

I always stock up on the D-Lish Scraps Cardfetti  which makes card making easy!

Looking forward to seeing your creations,

Renee xoxo

Your smile says everything - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am back with my second share for October. 
This is just one of those just because layouts, just because I had the cute photo, and just because I had the perfect title for the layout. 
Your Smile Says Everything
I love the happiness on my great nephews face, at the beach, enjoying himself, and that smile. 
This fantastic chipboard title is a Memory Maze chipboard title. It was perfect for this layout. I simply coloured it with some ink. 
This next cluster features Creative Cuts pack5 x 7 paper bagwood veneer heart and enamel dots.
In this cluster, you can see I have also added a flair button, which given the theme of the title, this one was a perfect match. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

'Bloom' by Amy

Hi All! Spring sure is in the air!

Don’t you just love it, when you go outdoors and the air is warm and the gardens are in full bloom?

I have here a photo captured on one of my walks. I was lucky to capture a picture of a bee resting on this pretty flower.

After I prepared the background to my liking with acrylic paints from my stash, I set to work to embellish my page.

As pictured, I used paper flowers, shaped wooden buttons, round Cabochons and Punchinella from the store.

In this small cluster, I have used a flair, paper flowers and a gold arrow from Charms Creations.

Finally, the title, as pictured, was perfect for this page: it was from the September JAP kit. I wrapped the mint paper rose over the letter ‘O’!

It was wonderful being able to play with pretty colours and goodies from the store.

Thank you for popping by.

See you next time!

"Cool" by Jasmine

Hello again.

Hope you are well.

I am sharing a page that highlights my two crazy boys about 5 years ago....And I can say, nothing has changed... even though they are now 14.

I went crazy with shades of blue.  
I loooooove blues and it went perfectly with the colours in my photo.

It was so easy to go through my D'lsih stash and pull out anything blue... Although the background took a bit of time between "coats", the embellishments to finish the page was the easy bit.

I have used:
 Punchinella, sequins both circle and stars, paper doily, flair button, wordfetti pieces, stencil, D'lish enamel dots, a big glitter star from a Just Add Paper Kit and even the string that is wrapped around the JAP kit.  
Nothing goes to waste.

"Jump" by Anthea

Hi all again.  How are you all doing?  I don't know about you but I am finding how hard to believe the weeks are going by right now.  I am barely having time to scratch myself let alone finding much time to scrap.  Do you have bursts where you scrap a bunch and then taper off for a bit?
Anyways - I digress.  Today's LO is another LO that I did at retreat recently.  It has a lot of texture but was surprisingly pretty easy and not messy to put together.

I stared with a piece of textured paper - then I put some paint through a stencil (if you are looking for stencils we have lots here) and let it dry (that was the messiest part of this LO) and then stamped some stamps across the bottom of the paint, overlapping it.  I love the grungy effect. 
I then simply took some co-ordinating paper and ripped it up and tucked it behind my photos and then placed a doily (cut in half) as another layer.  I took some back cotton and scrunched that up and used that as another layer.
Then it was simply a matter of embellishing. 
I love the D-lish wood veneer pieces, so I lay them across my page.  You can paint these but I love them raw. 

I then cut a few quotes from a patterned paper and added a D-lish sequin bow (because you can never have too many of them).

I found the whole LO was missing a little something, so then (because nothing was stuck down at this stage) lifted everything up and flicked some black paint across the LO.  I love the look of splatters here and there.  If you like the look too but a scared to try the technique - I would suggest you try using some D-lish enamel dots.  They have a very similar effect but you can place them exactly how you like.

Well - that is it for today.
Keep well.
