Beautiful - Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, just popping in with my share for today, a cute little layout of my great niece.
This was a very sweet photo, so I wanted to create something equally as sweet, and came up with this layout. There are lots of items in the D-lish Scraps shop suitable for baby layouts. 
In this first cluster, I have used colour me cuts wildflowers, which I painted with some Lindy's stamp gang colours. I added some die cuts from a previous JAP kit add ons pack, not currently available, but you may have in your stash. If you don't have this particular one, look out for new ones being released this year. I also added Little Birdie flowers - pearl gypsies and pearl petites. The title is a Memory Maze mini word.
This second cluster also features the colour me cuts wildflowersJAP kit bitsLittle Birdie flowers and a paper doily.
I hope you can find some summer time free to do some scrapping. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

'Fun' by Amy C

Hi All!
My layout share today is one created with a photo of a bunch of awesome girls that love a good laugh and have beautiful hearts. We only see each other once per year - but always have a blast together!

I created the background myself. I wanted to create a fun and happy page so as to compliment the photo.

I painted stripes using Colour Blast Artist Inks mixed with water - I used Mermaid, Soot, and Citrus - and to add a bit of a burnt orange look, I used the Colour Blast 'Sunset' Colour Spray.

Once the painted stripes had dried, for texture, I applied modelling paste over a D-lish 5x5 stencil

Next I did some stamping, in black, randomly - and then started to embellish! The embellishments I used were some wood veneer flowers, sequins and Colour Me Cuts flowers.

Behind the photo, as pictured here, I layered a few different products including Punchinella, Colour Me Cuts and a cream tea rose.

For the title, I selected the word 'fun' from one of the Creative Cuts packs in store and coloured it with a black Sharpie. I wrapped the twine around the bottom of the title and the photo.

Finally, in this large cluster behind the photo in the top corner I layered a few more awesome D-lish Scraps products: Colour Me Cuts, flairs, resin flowers, Bitty Bow clip, a Journal Spot from the December 'Slice of Summer' Just Add Paper kit, and a paint chip tab in yellow. 
And so now the page was complete!

Thank you for popping by here - and I hope it leaves you feeling inspired.

"Today" by Jasmine Shea

Have you seen the gorgeous January Inspiration Board at The Scrap Suite?
It is just divine.
I immediately wanted to create a page using a black background 
and then it had to have lots of gold and silver and sparkle...
So that was my inspiration and starting point.

I have used a photo of one of my boys and myself taken a few years ago now. 
I really wanted to capture us so I kept the page pretty simple and used the gold frame to highlight the pic.

 And my close up shows the texture and sparkle of the D'lish embellies.
I also used part of a Christmas card in the background which was black and gold.

I have included:
Glitter heart (from a Just Add Paper Kit)

I would love to see you play along with this board.

"Epic Family Selfie" by Anthea

Hello all. 
If you are a regular D-lish visitor (or Scrap Suite visitor) you will have seen my sneak peak for this LO earlier in the month when we shared some close ups for the January JAP kit "New Beginnings".
The colours in this kit scream 'party' and 'celebration' to me - so what better pic to scrap than an all time favourite family selfie from Christmas several years ago. 

I was actually surprised by how little of these colours from this kit I have in my scrap collection but it was nothing that a little bit of glimmer mist couldn't fix.....and buying the new kit of course. 
This LO is really very simple and has used very minimal products on it, but I wanted to show you how D-lish creative cuts could be used as the main focus of the LO. 
In this LO I have used both some creative cuts from a traditional white pack (seed stems in this instance) and a black creative cut that was cut to suit the LO - if I remember correctly this was from a mini kit. 
I finished off with some alphas and some hug and kiss embellishments.

Although this is one of my more simple LOs, with very little product on it, I really like how it has turned out.  I love how the embellishments on the page don't overwhelm the photo, but rather draw your eyes to it. 
I look forward to seeing what you create with this gorgeous kit. 
Till next time
Take care,

2019 | Amanda Lawrence

Hello scrappers!

Today I am back to share with you my sample layout for the 'New Beginnings' Inspiration Board.

You may have seen a sneak during the reveal, here is the full layout ...

I used the New Beginnings 'Just Add Paper' kit to create my page. The only items from my stash were the cardstock and the black paper with tiny gold polka dots. 

I used some mixed media supplies for my background and the mini confetti stencil which is included in the kit. This stencil would also look fabulous on birthday or celebration pages, it's like a party popper exploded on your layout! So fun and cool! 

My largest cluster used the black flower one one of the gold flowers. I also added 2 of the silver leaves, a flair and some of the white paper roses. All these items came from the kit.

My smaller cluster was arranged on top of the silver paper doiley. I used the other gold flower and another flair here as well as the gorgeous gold glitter heart and the remaining silver leaf and white paper rose. The black diagonal stripe piece you can just see in this closeup was made using the washi tape in the kit, I also added a strip down the right side of the layout too.

I gave the wood veneer 2019 a light coat of gold watercolour to make it shine. I then placed it on top of some of the journal cards from the kit before embellishing the area with the final flair button and the silver mini bow.  

To finish I added my journalling to one of the cards and tucked it behind my photos. These were mounted using the gold tissue paper in the kit to create a soft layer. A scattering of the included heart and star sequins in silver and gold and my layout was complete!

I hope I have inspired you today to get creating with your kit. If you would like to purchase one you can find it on the website here. These kits are just $10 and include all the embellishments as shown on my layout.

Till next time, 
Amanda x

"Real cute" by Amanda Hartmann

Hi all,

Did you see this month's Just Add Paper kit and Inspiration Board? Here is my page designed with the kit: 'New Beginnings'.

I used most of the elements of the kit, including using  the confetti stencils to create my background.
Here is the Inspiration Board that inspired the kit....

Let's look at some close ups:
I love the gold flowers in this month's kit!

And the small silver fabric bow was real cute - goes well with this layout!
Here is a journal-it paired with a flair and silver leaf.
I sprinkled the silver stars around too!
I really do love how the elements of silver and gold are tied together with black in this wonderful kit.
Make sure you hit the D-lish Scraps store for yours now!
Thanks for looking,

Just WOW by Tracey

Hi everyone and Happy New Year.

My first time on the Blog this year and I couldn't go past the Birthday Bingo challenge over at The Scrap Suite.   I love this idea and plan to do a lot more LOs using this formula.   I had to use stitching, a splash of red and wood veneer.

I started by stitching some random rectangles in the background and gluing down some tissue paper for my splash of red and a diecut that came from a previous Just Add Paper Kit.
I layered my photo with some paper, punchinella and some cardfetti, added a couple of clusters with Flair Buttons (how appropriate!) wood veneer arrows from a JAP kit, (some kits on special so check them out) sequins, a button, the super cute micro resin stars from the Boy Wonder Jap Kit and some star epoxy stickers.   I finished with my title using a wood veneer word and some more stitching.
Not a drop of mixed media to be seen!

Plenty of time still to enter.   Looking forward to seeing what you create
Happy crafting,

"Girls Night" by Renee Iveson

This is my first post 2019 and I am very excited to share the layout and card I created for the January Inspiration board: New Beginings. 
 I was inspired by the gorgeous metallics and just just loved party theme.

I used the January 'Just Add Paper' (JAP)  kit which makes creating a layout a breeze!

This JAP kit included lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies for a bargain price. I love the Foil Doilies in gold and silver (which are a fab stable of any stash!), the coordinating flairs and the sweet wood veeners.
I love that the JAP kits have a mini stencil included too, this months was a funky confetti design with hearts, stars and curls! 

You can find the details about the current Inspiration board New Beginnings HERE.

It's no secret that I love metallics and these flowers and leaves are no exception!

When ever I finish a layout I try to create a card with the scrap pieces left over. With the JAP kits their is more than enough goodies left over to create more layouts or multiple cards. 
I quickly whipped this simple card up with some of the left overs. 

Can't wait to see what you are inspired to create for this months inspiration board!

Renee xoxo

Sweet - Sandra Brimelow

Happy New Year 2019.
Well some of us are back into the swing of being back at work, for others of you, still relaxing on your summer break. Enjoy.
Today I am sharing my first share for 2019. I have used the inspiration board as inspiration for my layout. Although it is not celebrating the New Year, I thought it was still useful for celebrating a new baby.  Here is the inspiration board:
And here is my layout:
So I was inspired by the colours, and by the phrase new beginnings in the inspiration board. 
The second cluster features bitty bag, coloured doilyMagnolia flower.
In this last cluster, I have also added a flair button, and a journal its tag from a JAP kit.
I love the way the colours came together for this sweet layout. 
I hope we see your creations using this inspiration board. 
Until next time, happy scrapping.

#Smile by Amy Churchward

Happy New Year!!

I hope you are enjoying a relaxing start to 2019, wherever you are! I am excited to be here with my first share for the year - having just returned home from a fantastic break in hot and 
beautiful Western Australia.

Today, I am sharing a layout I created using a photo of my eldest, Joshua, from when he was 4 years old. It was captured in the mountains of Canada. The lushness and vibrancy of the green grass here really captivates me.

I love this photo so much, as it represents calm and innocence. So I wanted to keep the page really simple.

For the background, I used a green spray mist over a 'Scattered Stars' stencil from the store. I then set it aside to dry and prepared the photo.

As pictured, behind this photo, from the store I have used - Punchinella, resin flowers, a printed tag, and a creative cut heart from the Christmas 2018 kit. 

After these layers were completed, I adhered the photo in place - and then continued to embellish the page with goodies from the store. These included coloured wire, fabric flowers (yellow), a coloured die-cut butterfly, a flair, and a mini metal flower.

I used a quote from Journal It's Wordfetti and - from the Christmas 2018 Advent Kit - the wood veneer - and Creative Cut title 'Love'. I have placed this over a coloured Charms Creations circle - to complete the page!

Thank you for popping by - and stay cool!
