For the Woman Who has everything by Tracey B

Hi everyone.  
My turn today on the blog.   I was inspired by Jasmine's LO featuring alphas over at the Cyber Crop.   This is a photo of my sister with her 50th birthday present from her daughter - a statue of 2 meerkats!   

I started by rolling on some black gesso with a brayer and when that was dry, some white gesso.   I then used the chisel end of a paint spatula and scrapped on some spearmint, red and orange acrylic paint in random places.   I then just layered my photo with a diecut word bubble from a previous JAP kit, a doily, piece of paper bag and my go to Punchinella
Then I just added some embellishments including mini metal flowers, rosebuds, a very cute hedgehog flair button (because I couldn't find a meerkat flair!), some tiny heart beads, some wood veneer hearts (again from a JAP kit) and a few other bits and pieces from my stash.   Finished off with the old D'Lish alphas.

   This is the challenge that inspired me. Plenty of time to join in this month's challenges so give it a go and see what you can create!

"Family" by Renee Iveson

I hope that everyone has settled back into the routine of work, schoool, home and everyday life!
I am very excited to share a layout I created recently while on holidays from work :)

This layout features one of my current favourite pics of my husband and three children.

I have included lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies into this creation. This includes the D-Lish paper flowers, Willow Blossom, Wood veeners leaves, Kraft Bitty Bags, Creative Cuts Geo Butterfly and finished with a pastel pink Tassel

While I was creating this page I felt it needed another texture and more movement as it was quite neat and a little static for me. The D'Lish Scraps Coloured Wire is perfect for adding texture and movement as it can be manipulated into an shape. 

For a little sparkle I added in a Sequin bow.  I have even used the gorgeous little heart tab that the twine is secured with in the Just Add Paper kits  as it co-ordinated with this layouts colour scheme perfectly.

Looking forward to seeing your creations,

Renee xoxo

Happy by Sandra Brimelow

Hi everyone, this is my second share for the month. It's a bit scary that we are mid February already. 
This layout I have created using one of the January cybercrop challenges, designed by Renee Iveson, using paper bags. 
I love the textural element that paper bags give to a layout, and they are handy for tucking tags into, although mine I haven't done this to. 
 This first cluster features 5 x 7 paper bag and bitty bag. I have also included Little Birdie flowers - Callais fleur and Pearl Petites. I had some left over Creative Cuts page cuts - hearts, which I coloured with a gentle yellow to make it lift off the white background. The words are Wordfetti, and perfect for picking out appropriate little phrases. 
 In this cluster, I added Memory maze mini words and a bow from a JAP kit
To finish, this cluster is featuring a white paper doily and a flair button. I have also added a heart cabachon from a JAP kit
Until next time, happy scrapping.

Hi Everyone! Did you see last month's gorgeous Inspiration Board at the Scrap Suite? I was inspired by the colours and the fabulous projects that the DT girls created from 'New Beginnings' JAP kit

This photo was from a winter's morning walk at my 'happy place'. I felt that the colours from the photo would be a perfect match for this gorgeous Inspiration Board.

I really wanted to capture the simplicity of the photo - so I kept the page simple.

To prepare the background, I used a brayer and applied gold paint thinly over the area where the photo was to be placed. I then splattered some silver paint to break up the gold - and used some Washi tape from the 'New Beginnings' JAP kit, for part of the background.

Then it was time to embellish this page - lets look at some close-ups...

As pictured here, from the store, I have used Punchinella, D-lish Dots - enamel, paper flowers, wood veneer, a shaped arrow, and fabric flowers.


In this cluster here, from the 'New Beginnings' JAP kit, I have used tissue paper and assorted star / heart sequins. 

I have also used a 'Creative Cut' title (from the store) and simply coloured it with a black sharpie pen. 

Finally, to complete this simple page, I used a flair from the store over a Charms Creations denim heart.

Thank you for popping by! With the warmer weather, I hope you can find some scrapping time, whilst indoors staying cool!

Ciao for now,

Always | Amanda Lawrence


I couldn't resist having a play with this months stunning 'Just Add Paper' kit - Love Always. The colours are simply divine and I knew I had the perfect photo to use it with.

I had this crazy idea to make a geometric heart out of triangles so I dug through my papers to find a few in colours to match the Inspiration Board. I'm normally a white-cardstock-background kinda girl, but when I found this woodgrain heart bokkeh piece that I had squirreled away, I knew it was the perfect time to use it! 
I cut squares from the patterned papers and then sliced them in half diagonally. Arranging them onto the background in the heart design, I made sure to leave enough space so that I could handstitch the lines between each and also around the outer edge of the heart. 

The embellishments that I have used all came from the 'Love Always' JAP kit. I used the pink Willow Blossom for my main cluster along with the silver heart patch and a few of the other paper flowers.

I also used a few pieces from the Ephemera Pack which you can purchase as an Add On. You can see how perfectly they layer together to create interest. The kit also has these teeny tiny resin roses in it which I have scattered around the page much like you would with enamel dots. They are oh so cute!

I used the wood veneer word 'Always' as part of my title along with the '&' flair and a few letter stickers from my stash. You can see how perfectly the kit and add ons work together! 

I hope I have inspired you to get creative. If you haven't already purchased one of our February kits, there are still some available in the store here:

This layout was created using the $10 kit and the $4.50 packet of ephemera with plenty of pieces leftover!

Till next time,

"So Cute" by Jasmine

Today I am sharing a page that was really just a spur of the moment creation.
I was sorting through papers to see what I would use and I came across some A4 size book paper.
I also had my photos spread across the desk and saw these pics and because they were tiny, knew they were perfect.
From there it began.
And it ended by using more gorgeous D'lish Scraps products.

I used glimmer mist in the background (yes, I still have HEAPS of that stuff).
I used some ink to dye one of the paper doilies to blend with the off white of the paper.
I used an old clothes tag and then added the sequin bow and the title So Cute using word pieces.
The other embellishments I used were a paper flower, little roses, coloured wire which I shaped into a heart, more word pieces from a JAP kit, wood veneer heart and then some yellow vellum butterflies from the previous Mini Kits.  

I love how the close up shows you every sequin on that bow.

So sometimes you don't need a piece of 12x12 paper and a 6x4 photo.
Just use anything that jumps out at you.

"Hello Sugar" by Anthea

Happy Valentine's Day to you all. 
Today I am sharing with you yet another LO featuring my gal. 
To create the back ground I actually pulled out my Gelli pad. I have had it for a while now, but never seem to make the time to play.  I layered my two paints and smooshed them together on the pad and   then used a D-lish stencil (this one came from the Spring Fling JAP kit) to leave an imprint on the pad which would then transfer to my paper.  It kind of smudged every where but I stuck with it as I like the messy look.
I then added some gold foil around the imprints left by the stencil and randomly over the page to add a bit of a pop to the LO.
I then added some flowers (both resin and paper), a  sequin bow, some butterfly colour me cuts, a D-lish flair and the tag that came with the "Hello Sugar" JAP kit across the bottom of the photo. Every JAP kit comes wrapped with twine or wool and it's own little tag - I never throw them away as they make cute extra embellishments.  
I coloured the main butterfly with water coloured pencils and left the others uncoloured and then placed them to create a visual triangle to help draw the focus to the photo. 
Overall, I am really pretty happy with  how this LO come out.  I love the sweet but bold colours.  I am still not sure why I went with a green paint and not a blue - I usually try to match up to my photo.  In this case blue felt wrong and I am so glad I went with my instinct because I think it makes the photo pop. 
Well that is it for now.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
Hugs from me.

Walking the Dog | Amanda Lawrence

Hi all!
I'm back with my second share for February, this one is a photo of my daughter walking our dog when he was just a puppy. He's 3 now so it's been in the to-be-scrapped pile for a while.

I selected papers and embellishments to match the colours in the photo; pink, green and brown. There was a lot of 'blank space' in the photo but I didn't want to crop it down too much and lose the trees in the background. Instead, I used a wood veneer frame to draw the eye to the focal point. 

For my larger cluster I used a Chinese Peony as the main element. I then added more paper flowers, a resin rose and a flair. I cut a pip berry stem in half and looped it so that it was coming out from behind my floral cluster. I also added some enamel dots and tiny heart buttons from a past JAP kit.

I layered a coloured paper doiley under the photo before building my second cluster. I also added some paper leaves. Other D-lish pieces included the two journal tags which I layered at the top of the photo where I included my date.

I hope you have been inspired by my layout today. 

Until next time, 

Amanda x

"Snapshots", by Amanda H

Hello D-lish Scraps fans!
Sharing again today a page I created for the CSI challenges. I used a past Just Add Paper Kit - which I hadn't even opened! (Hands up if you are guilty of that!) I used both the main kit as well as the die cut ephemera packs you can now get with every kit. So many pretty extras!
I started with a piece of striped paper that I had already cut a circle from. I placed this on white cardstock and embellished around it! The past JAP kit was tones of blue and turquoise, to which I added a splash of red.
I used cuts, flair and journal it's, all from the Just Add Paper kit.
Then I added a red Tea roses.
I took some Creative Cuts (leaves and open leaves) and coloured them blue, and tucked under the cluster with some red stamen.
I then repeated these embellishments in a few clusters around the circle.
This one included a blue word, cut from Ombre Wordfetti.
In this cluster I used a Petunia Floral Creative cut, and coloured it red to layer in the cluster.
This cluster includes more of the same, but also an vintage Charms Creations lollipop, which I also coloured red. It is a another pop of red amongst all the awesome blue D-lish goodies.
Do you have an old Just Add Paper kit in your stash un-opened? Get it out and create with it today!
Thanks for looking,

Family Always by Tracey B

Hi everyone,
You know when you have an idea in your mind about how you want your layout to look?  
Well that is not what happened here!

I started with some pink card stock then added a deeper pink paint which I partially rubbed off with a babywipe through a stencil.   I forgot to gesso my page first so I had some trouble with this and I didn't really like the pinks so I ended up covering it with grey paint and rubbing some of that back.  Added some gesso and some more paint stamped using the end of some cardboard tubes.
Then time to embellish using lots of D'Lish goodness.   
I've used a doily which I cut as the base for my clusters, punchinella, washi tape from a Just Add Paper kit, a fabric flower, paper flowers and rosebuds, some pearl heart carbochons and enamel dots, leaves, a sequin bow and flair button as well.   I finished up by using a chipboard word which I covered with gesso as part of my title.

Plenty of time to enter this month's Mood Board Challenge "Love Always".

Looking forward to seeing what you create.

"Love" by Renee Iveson

I am very excited to share the layout and card I created for the February Inspiration board: Love Always.
What wasn't I was inspired by with this inspiration board?? As soon as I saw this one I Knew exactly what to create! I was inspired by the gorgeous colour pallet and just just loved the romantic theme.

I have used lots of gorgeous D-lish goodies for this layout. I love the Paper Doilies, coordinating flairs,  Colour Me Cuts and the sweet wood veeners. I added in a Pick and Place canvas bow  and a puffy heart from a past Just Add Paper kit.

You can find the details about the current Inspiration board Love Always HERE.

For the header for this layout I have used a Creative Cut word and backed it in patterned paper and then used a Scalloped Edge Felt Doily to make it stand out. 

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

Renee xoxo
