D-Lish Catch Up with Kate

I cannot believe that it is nearly the end of this design team's term working for D-Lish Scraps and showcasing the fantastic products on offer in store. Time certainly flies by!
Don't forget there is a new Design Team call happening now. Be sure to check the D-Lish Facebook page to find out more.

A couple of layouts to share with you today. 

I am flying!
I did this one for an online challenge blog entry, using some fabulous D-Lish products. 


I'm so Excited!

I wanted to do a page that BURSTS with just fun, and to tie in with the excitement my 3 year old felt on her birthday with this baby doll she received. It was so funny and so cute. I have used the following!
Flourish with a Bling Elise Flourish and Flower set, pin (from one of the previous Just Add Paper kits) , cherry blossom, trellis rose, cosmos daisies, large resin rose, forget me not, Amanda at D-Lish had hand dyed these fabulous little lacy/crochet flowers and a sparkly resin pink flower.

There are still some Just Add Paper kit's left in store- perfect for your Christmas cards or layouts or otp!
Plus new stock in store now too.

Have a great weekend!!
Love Kate x

Three cute D-lish shares for you by Chantal! :)

Hi everyone!

How is everyone?  Great, I hope!

Well today I've got three cute layouts using D-lish Scraps' goodies to share with you all!

You may of already noticed, but for those who haven't or don't know me very well, I just LOVE colour!  ALOT!!!

So today, I'll start with my brightest coloured layout, then work down to my most subdued coloured layout... just 'cause I can!  Lol!

This first layout is based on the current sketch challenge at My Creative Sketches.  This sketch was perfect for the vertical elements in my layout and it also uses one focal photo...

I love this photo of Lucy having her very first koala cuddle.  She was so proud to hold him all by herself... he is a big boy!! :)

I've decorated all my chipboard easily with acrylic paint and then once dried, I've outlined and doodled on them with a Uniball Gel Impact pen.  Love the striking look this technique gives!

I've also used a chipboard sun on my layout.  I've used the outer "rays" part and I've put a journalling spot underneath for some (you guessed it!) journalling.

The other D-lish goodies here (other than the above mentioned Journalling Spot), are four Journal It's Note Strips - Rainbow, a green Resin Rose, Resin Mini Dove, Resin Heart, Washi Tape and Carnival Tickets.

My next layout is called "You 2 Have Caught the Travel Bug!"...

I've made my own "world" by using a compass and pencil, followed by adhering stickers around the circle (the idea actually came from some the stickers) then outlining both the circle and around the stickers with a black Sharpie marker and then cutting around the outer edges.

I absolutely adore these D-lish resin birds and I can never ever get enough washi tape... (like, EVER!) ;)

I've been rippin' out the ol' sewing machine lately...

I machine stitched through my title for a bit of visual anchorage... plus I don't trust those Thickers over washi tape.. especially when they are partially layered over more Thickers! ;)

And now I've shared two colourful graphic-style layouts with you I'd like to share something just a little bit different - a somewhat "elegant-style" wedding layout.  I have used October 15th's Sketch at Stuck?! for this one, entitled "Laura & Robert"...

I have used the actual wedding invitation on my layout to form part of the journalling and for the title.  The invitation was so simple and elegant and it had all the vital information about the first wedding that my girls have attended.

I used decorative scissors to cut a square shape (similar in size to the photos) from the original invitation (which was originally postcard size) and I've tab punched two other parts of the invite and tucked them under the photos.

Here's a close-up of the two gorgeous Old Fashioned Roses and the lovely two-toned Medium Rose that I've used...

The little addition of that Charm Key really added that something extra to the title square, don't you think?  It's very detailed... love metal charms - especially when they are that particular "vintage dirty gold" colour. :)

Plus I've also used a Mini Rose and Small Rose at the top of my layout...

Well I hoped you have enjoyed my new layouts using a small selection of D-lish's vast range of awesome embellishments available in store!  There's always new stock coming in and it's so exciting to check out what's available!

TFL & Cheers!

Lots Of Layers

Hi Guys, it's Lauren here again. I am going to share a couple of layouts with you today that have lots and lots of layers. I love layering paper, stickers and embellishments on my layouts. It's a great way to use up scraps of paper too! So here is my layout:

And as you can see from this photo there are quite a few different layers there. I have started with one of the cute paper doilies from D-lish Scraps. I have then added some yellow polka dot fabric tape and layers of patterned paper - some that I have cut out using my Nestabilities dies. I have then used some stickers to create some extra layers.

After I added my photo, I have created another layer on the top with my dymo tape journalling, the chevron bottle top and the heart & star buttons.

I love the way it gives dimension to the layout even though there is a lot of white space on it too. This next layout is based on the October 1st sketch at Stuck Sketches. Again I have used lots of layouts of paper, shipping tags, washi tape and embellishments. 

I have used a couple of resin flowers:

I have also made some bunting using D-lish embellies - I've used the star & heart buttons, the polka dot buttons and some twine and added a few stickers on there too.

 Thanks for stopping by...
