Adore You | Amanda Lawrence


Today I am here to share my final layout for March. This one is a sweet selfie I took of my girl and I on Christmas Day. I chose to use a monochromatic palette of peach for this one with a touch of white.

The layout began with the cutfile heart I used for the background. I simply handstitched around the edge to make it stand out.

The stunning lace butterfly was one of the first embellishments I picked for this layout so I built my cluster around that. I used; a swan rose, forget-me-nots, roses, flair, resin and enamel dots for this cluster.

The smaller cluster had some more paper flowers, resin and enamel dots to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fly High, by Amanda H

Hi again,
Here is my final page share for March! And I love a good white, lime and blue colour scheme which what I went with today!
I started with white cardstock, black cardstock and some patterned paper.
I wanted to create some lime elements, so I used Colour Artist Inks to colour Creative Cuts and a Lace Doily.
Then I finished the page with a few key lime and blue D-lish Scraps embellishments.

In this cluster you can see the Creative Cuts - a chevron and leaves. Also added a paper leaf, paper flower, enamel hearts and a resin star.

In this cluster, you can see more of the same flower, star and heart elements, but also a Journal It circle and flair.

And I love these handy little date journal its that come in kits! Perfect little bits to add to pages!
What is one of your favourite colour combos??
Thanks for looking,

You and Me | by Nicolee Cable

Good morning!
I hope you've been getting busy with the CyberCrop challenges this month at 

Today I'm showing you the challenge I've put out there and really hope you'll give it a go.

My challenge is for you to take inspiration from an outfit that you wear (or it could be a favourite outfit of someone elses!)  

Here is my layout (please excuse the reflecting photo of my gorgeous sister and hubby)...

...and here is the outfit that inspired it...

These are the elements of my fave outfit that I wanted to replicate on paper:

jeans (texture)
rose gold
navy and floral
and leather 

Now you'll notice that my outfit is heavily navy and blue jeans - but my layout is a lot brighter and tan coloured.  While I have used navy in my layout, I have focused a lot on the denim texture instead, using the hessian background paper.  Isn't this cute denim bow just perfect as well!
I have fussy-cut flowers as well as using paperflowers in the embellishments.
I've used a swede coloured tassel to mirror my earrings and included a rose-gold banner which echos my rose-gold jewellery.

I found I didn't have the right coloured flower for this layout so I took a white embossed daisie and painted it with navy ink.  Perfect colour match!

So here is a list of products from the D-lish Scraps store used for this really fun layout:

'You & Me' Creative Cuts title
striped paper bag (from previous JAP kit)

I'm really looking forward to seeing the wonderful layouts you create by inspiring yourself with a favourite outfit.
Please join us over on The Scrap Suite and play along!

Take care and until next time
Nicolee xx

'Together' by Mal

Hi all, 

Have you been scrapping?
Have you seen the Cybercrop challenges?
Have you done my CC challenge?

What do you think?

I love hearts and stars. And flowers. And bows.
Here I took a scattered stars stencil and used both the positive and negative of it.

I love raw elements on my page.
This time I took a raw chipboard frame from a while ago and a raw wood veneer title and stapled them down.
So much chipboard at D-lish, check it out all here.

Then I took an assortment of flowers, paper and material all in pink and different sizes and scattered them around my page.

I also took a pick-n-place bow in baby pink just tucked under my large flower. How cute is that bow!!???

Lastly I took more raw wood veneer stars with hearts and some pink hearts, 3 of course, which were in a past Just Add Paper Kit.

Lastly I placed 3 small enamel dots around my page.

So what do you think?

I'd love to see your creations over at The Scrap Suite

Happy scrapping....Mal xxx

Things you love, love, love | Michelle Stokes

Hello Hello! It's Michelle here today with a closer look at the layout I created and shared for our recent Cyber crop. Cyber crops are held mid month, every month, within our Facebook group The Scrap Suite and are a great source of challenging inspiration. This month I've set a challenge to Scraplift me! Whether it be part or all of my layout, I can't wait to see what you all create

To find inspiration for this challenge, I looked back on some past layouts I've created and ended up scrap lifting myself! HA The layout chosen was actually from an idea that was shared in a previous Cyber crop. Lets take a closer look...

The main focus of this layout was to recreate and document a new list of things that Leila loves. From her obsession with all things Super Mario to eating all day every day, its listed here to look back on for years to come.

The background started with multiple square pieces of pattern paper, a couple of circular creative cuts from the D-lish Store and a tonne of staples lol I then backed the list and photo with complimenting papers and adhered them to the middle of the layout with some foam tape.

Both layouts have turned out very similar, with a few slight differences. Heres a look back at the layout that I've scrap lifted. You can find the original post HERE

This precious girl sure does love to chill out with her "friends", drinking hot chocolate and listening to music on the iPad.

Once I had the main focal points of the layout adhered to the page I worked on the clusters. I grouped together items from the D-lish store along with some fussy cut flowers for the first cluster, and added a sprinkling of gold color shine to finish it off.

Items shown in this cluster are a Printed tag, Creative cuts, paper flowers, Journal It's, Ombre wordfetti, D-lish Flair, Faceted & Glitter enamel dots

Over on the top right you can see I've tucked in a lace doily for a little extra detail, then embellished the edges with another flair button, paper flowers, creative cut, some more enamel dots and a fussy cut flower.

Lastly in this massive cluster I've added more Journal It's, a flair button, ombre wordfetti (seems to be a favourite of mine) more paper flowers, enamel dots, creative cuts, a fussy cut flower and a wordfetti piece that is stuck to the bottom of the photo.

Well I hope you've enjoyed seeing some close ups of this layout. It was quite fun to recreate an older style layout. I hope its inspired you to play along with my Scraplift me challenge too!

To see all the other challenges set by the other DT members, head over to The Scrap Suite HERE .

Until next time, Happy Scrapping!

‘Bloom’ By Amy

Another month! Another Challenge! Yippee!

Yesterday the March challenge was launched – and today I am sharing the page I created using butterflies, butterflies and more butterflies!

A fun butterfly fact: butterflies cannot fly unless their body temperature is more than 30 degrees Celsius!


First, I have built up my page using patterned paper. 

Behind my photo I have prepared the background by stamping and using some ColourBlast texture paste in the ‘Leather’ under the photo. I have made layers, consisting of paper doilies and foil doilies.

Pictured here, I have used a wooden heart-shaped button and D-Lish Dots. The butterflies, as pictured, are both stamped and hand-cut.

As pictured here, I sprayed the lace butterfly with ColourBlast ‘Rainforest’ colour spray and watered it down to tone it down, for the page, and finished it with a D-Lish Dot.

In this small cluster on the left corner of my photo I have used: a flair button, D-Lish Dots – faceted, Pick n Place bows and paper flowers.
Here are some close-ups of the page, for your perusal. 

Thank you for stopping by! I look forward to seeing how you go with your interpretation of the challenge!

Ciao, Amy

"Sweet Memories" by Jasmine Shea

I love recycling in my pages and in this page today I have used some wrapping paper as my background on some white cardstock.

No mixed media at all because the paper was busy enough and with some "pretty" D-lish Scraps pieces, my page was complete.

This is a photo of my Mum when she was about 9 or 10.  
So so sweet and I just wish I could have known her then to see what she was like as a young girl.

I have used a large doily in my background as my feature piece to draw your eye to the photo which I framed using  a raw veneer frame.
Followed up with two clusters of embellishments including a lace bow, bitty blooms, rose, paper flowers, leaves and a sequin bow.

Thanks for stopping by.
