Love by Tracey B

Hi all,
hard to believe it's the last day of November.   Where has this year gone!
This layout was inspired by this month's Inspiration Board Arabian Nights.

I started by recycling an embossed piece of patterned paper that I think originally was pink.   I had played with a heap of mixed media some months ago but wasn't loving it so covered it in gesso and set it aside.   When I saw the Arabian Nights JAP Kit I dug it out and added some more water colour until I achieved the soft dreamy background I was after.   I cut some frames from some patterned paper and then it was simply a matter of sticking on goodies from the JAP kit.  
The JAP Kits are so easy to use, all the had work is done for you!
I used water colours again to colour the white flowers from the JAP Kit as well as colouring the diecut feather and the wood veneer title.    I added a few sequins for good measure as you can never have too much bling!  

It's not too late to enter this month's challenge if you haven't already.  

 Entries close at midnight tonight.  Looking forward to seeing what you create. xx

"Loving This" by Renee Iveson

I am very excited to share a recent layout and card I have created. 

This layout features my eldest daughter Viola on a bush walk about 12 months ago.

I have included lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies into this creation. I love the D-Lish paper doilies, as you can probably already guess I use them quite a lot as a base for my photos. Foe this layout I simple used some water colour ink to colour a couple of the white paper doilies to tie in some of my mixed media from the background. 

I have used the D-Lish paper flowers, Butterfly Colour Me Cuts and the Seed Stem Creative Cuts  which I have altered with some more of the water colour ink. I finished off the page with a dark silver sequin bow.
I have added in a Journal It Paint Chips Tab which I cut both ends in a "lizard tongue" fashion to personalize.  

I often 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 have quickly added on some paper flowers, a tassel, a sequin bow and some washi and tape and voila - cute card!

Looking forward to seeing your creations,

Renee xoxo

Dream - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, well it's almost December, how the year has flown.
So I share with you today my last November layout. 
I started by stenciling with gelatos onto the background, I wanted to create something soft to match the photo and the embellishments. 
For this layout, I used the Just Add Paper kits bundle deal - Spring fling, which was perfect for the photo.
In this first cluster, you can see from the Just Add Paper kit bundle deal, I have used a tag, and banner, with the title dream just poking into the photo. I also added Little Birdie pearl petites blush flower and lace butterfly, which I have cut in half.
This cluster photo gives a full view of the title, plus some birds, and a ring of flowers, plus flair from the Spring Fling bundle deal.
This last cluster photo, shows that I have also now added a white paper doily and cabachons from Flights of Fantasy Just Add Paper kit.
Such lovely embellishments that really enhance sweet baby photos. 
Until December, happy scrapping.

'We didn't do it!', by Amy

Happy Tuesday, Crafty Peeps!

Today I have a project that showcases one of my loves: the Minions! Pictured here are two of my plush Minions captured ?innocently. 

The one on the left is Minion 'Stuart' who is distinguished by his one brown eye and is known for his mischievous ways. On the right - my favourite, 'Bob'. He has one green and one brown eye. Bob is known for his childish ways and finds love and fun in anything and everything.

This simple project mostly of goodies from the October JAP kit, 'Boy Wonder'.

I have kept the background fairly plain, deliberately, with only small splatters of red and black ink.
For dimension, I randomly placed the cool micro resin stars from the 'Boy Wonder' JAP kit. 

Also from this kit, I have used the following items: die cut journal cards, a flair, washi tape (in the background), embroided patch in planet design, yellow paper bag, red tissue paper, Creative Cuts star-in-circles in black, and wood veneer rockets.

Inside the envelope I inserted some Punchinella from the store.

I have added a yellow D'Lish Dot on the die-cut journal card, from the kit as well.

Finally, I trimmed the word 'Today' from Journal It's - Minifetti, in Monochrome Blue.

These are great to have in your stash, as there are a variety of sentiments for many different occasions. I have some more left over from this kit that I might use on some handmade cards or gift tags. It's amazing how much you can get out of one JAP kit!

Thank you for popping by!

"A day of fun" by Anthea

 Hi everyone!!!
Hope you are all well!?  I am doing really well even though it is that hectic time of year.
Today I am sharing a really fun and bright LO I did of my hubby, sister, brother-in-law and myself on Mystery Island earlier on in the year.  The whole day was a blast and we finished it up with an obligatory selfie on our way back to the boat.

I started with a big smear of paint on a white piece of cardstock - I literally just smeared it on with an old credit card.  I wanted some colour to add to it and decided to go with red  as that is one of the brightest colours in the photo. I just dipped the edge of the credit card into red paint and made random stripes.  As you can see, there is nothing precise about how I did them.
I then used a D-lish bag as a patterned paper behind my matted photo. 
I then added a glitter resin heart (from a past JAP kit), a couple of D-lish paper flowers and a flair next to my photo.
I still felt like the LO was missing something and I played for what seemed like forever to make the LO 'work'.  I ended up taking some little left over pieces of coloured wire and used them to make some little 'sprigs' jutting out from my cluster. 

I then - of course once everything was stuck down decided that I wanted some black stitching on my LO.  I was thinking of going right around the edge but decided I liked this look better. 
All in all it was a very simple LO which really took a while to come together.
I hope that you can find some inspiration in it and that the brightness of the LO transfers into your day.
Till next time,
Take care

Love you to the.... by Amanda H

Hi D-lish fans!
Every month I get my Just Add Paper kits and every month I find fun ways to combine them with lovely D-lish things to make easy pages. Today I combined some bits from the October Boy Wonder kit with other goodies to create this page.
I added some tissue paper to the background plus some mint colour spray and black splatters.
Then I embellished! The key focus of the page is the Star in Circles Creative Cut from the kit. It is cut in black and was perfect to feature on my page. I used the larger cut piece as well as the individual Stars in circles.
For the central cluster, I used the wood veneer  circle - with the etched words " Love you to the moon and back", also from the kit. I combined this with paper flowers (pastel petals and tea rose), resin flowers and a wooden star button.
In the bottom left corner, I created another cluster, using the circle-star diecut, resin flower, paper flowers (pastel petals and Little birdie watercolour petals) .
I also added a sprinkle of  mini wood stars.
 And the top right corner cluster, I combined circle star diecuts, pastel petals, resin flowers, wooden star and sequin bows.
Such a sweet page of my dear daughter.
Thanks for looking.

Chase Your Dream by Tracey

Hi all,
Back today with a layout I created for the Scrap Suite November Cyber Crop challenge - Just Dream!

This is a photo of a friend on our recent holiday in America taken at Cocoa Beach where we dipped our toes into the Atlantic Ocean.

I started with my go to for a background, modelling paste through a stencil.   When dry I randomly added some water colour paints trying to match the blue of the sea and the sky.   Then I added some ink for contrast.   I added a large cluster starting with a puffy heart from a previous JAP Kit (I think Love Like This), some gorgeous flowers both paper and resin along with some mini rosebuds and finished off with a flair button.
For balance I created a smaller cluster containing a couple of the same flowers and a Bitty Bow Clip which I removed the clip from.

Hope you can join this month's Cyber Crop.   There are great challenges to inspire you.   Look forward to seeing what you create.  xx

"Summer" by Renee Iveson

I am very excited to share the layout I created for the November Cyber Crop for my challenge: Circle it!

This layout features a photo my my 2 younger children on our last family holiday to Wunglebung Station.

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 photo mat for my pics.

As usual I have added in my absolute favourite D-lish product wire as it adds another texture, colour and feel to any creation, on this layout I have used the copper wire to add another texture and to create flow between the to sides of the layout.

I have used the D-Lish  paper doiliespaper flowers, tassel, fabric blooms, Flairs and finished off with Cabochons.

You can find the details about the current Cyber Crop on the Scrap Suite page HERE on Facebook.

Looking forward to seeing your creations,

Renee xoxo

Silver and Sparkle by Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, I am popping in with my layout for the November D-lish Scraps cybercrop
For this challenge, I focused on using metallics, not something I do much, but for this layout it worked really well, with a lot of different metallics.
Silver and Sparkle
I started by using some metallic texture paste through a stencil on the background. I then gathered as many metallic embellishments as I could, and used what worked best. 
This first cluster features a white paper doily, sequin bow, coloured wireflower sequinspunchinellaflair buttonpastel petals, and a cornflower

Here is another view of the cluster, showing some of my title, which I found some glitter alpha stickers, to add to the sparkle and shine. 
So go discover your stash, see what shiny metallics you have, and have some fun. 
Till next time, Sandra xxx

Moments... Cyber Crop Challenge!

Hi! How are you all going with your challenges? 

I have here, my share on the 'Great Outdoors' challenge.

This photo was captured at 'Wallace's Hut' in Victoria's high country - in the Bogong high plains. 
As a child, this was a cross-country skiing playground for me.

I wanted to keep this page simple as wanted the photo to be the key feature here. Before I embellished it, I water-coloured the background with blue, green and a little grey to compliment the Snow Gums in the background of the photo.

I have used both papers and a D-lish paper doily behind the photo.

From the store, I then used a flair, paper flowers, stamens and clear glass cabochons.

Here, Punchinella has been placed underneath the photo: the grey was perfect for the rustic theme here.

In this cluster here, I have used paper flowers, and clear glass cabochons from the store.

Finally, the Mini Words chipboard title was placed - I decided to leave it raw, as I felt it was perfect with my page... oh and the subtitle 'Take Note' was a trimmed-down Journal It's in green.

Thank you for stopping by:  I hope you can enter this 'Great Outdoors' challenge!

Ciao, Amy
