"Loyal Pooch" by Amanda H

Hello D-lish Scraps fans!

There are some GREAT challenges over at The Scrap Suite this month and you have until mid-March to play along!

In this blog post you will get close ups and details for the page I created as a sample for my "Pets Parade" challenge.

I started with some white cardstock and green patterned paper, and adding some white splatterings of paint for interest. I layered a strip of vellum, a paper bag and lace doily (BACK IN STOCK!) under the photo. Then I went to town with my D-lish embellishments.
No automatic alt text available.
Here is the challenge and you can load your entries to this album in The Scrap Suite.

Look at that cute pooch..... perfect subject for this challenge!

I LOVE these Rustic blooms - this red one is perfect for my page.
I created this cluster by combining it with:


In the cluster on this I combined the same elements:

And never forget the Punchinella! It is great to tuck in corners. And even small scraps can be machine stitched into layers.

That's all for today!
Please join our challenges at The Scrap Suite! Super great prizes this month!

moments and memories | by Nicolee Cable

 Good Morning!!
Hoping your week has started well!

Well, I've decided to do a layout that I'm not so good at - Christmas!
Don't ask me why, but when it comes to Christmas photos - I balk and freeze and don't enjoy them!
Problem solved - go with a completely un-festive colour palette! 
Well that's what I chose to do with this layout.

My layout was very quick and easy to create.
With the background soft lime green paper, I then grabbed some scraps of wood-look paper and other off-cut elements (cork scallops and paper strips) and then the embellishments were easily placed into clusters, just like that!

This wooden wreath is perfect and looks so cute with this little pick n place bow on top!

I grabbed about 4 stamens and then folded them in half and poked them under the flair button.  Isn't the flair cute!! At the time I wondered how I would use this cute christmas tree flair but when I pulled it out - it's found its home!
I've used quite a few different sized leaves in both clusters.

I popped this mini white resin flower into this metal cabochon frame and it fits perfectly.  A twisting of this mini leaves wire, a fold and tuck of the stamens, a couple of resin flowers and enamel dots and voila! Cluster complete!

Isn't this wooden deer button adorable!  Sometimes when I buy things, I'm not quite sure how I'll use it but I can't just pass it up!  It's perfect for this layout.

My journalling is also my title.  I cut up the strip from the bottom of a page and staggered it next to the photo.

Here are the embellishments used:

Check out the store for all your embellishment goodies and I'd love to see what you create.
Have a wonderful week.

See you around

"Choose Happy" by Mal

Hi all, 

My share for you today is a page that I, surprisingly, really like. Why? Well I used something that I normally don't use and I really like how it turned out.

 So I don't normally chose BIG embellishments for may pages. If I do use a largish embellishment it's normally a patterned chipboard that I can place behind a photo or can cover most of it up.

This time I fell in love with this raw wood veneer bicycle that was in a past Just Add Paper kit. How gorgeous is it!!!!

I normally would not use something like this but I thought wow I can make this the feature on my page and can put a photo in the front wheel.
I love the look of raw wood veneer too so I decided to leave it raw and not paint it.

I placed some yellow punchinella under the bicycle over the gauze to add more dimension. My eldest daughter loves this punchinella as it's holographic which apparently is very cool at the moment...and here I am using it on my scrap page.

I decided to keep up using the bicycle as the feature and used some coloured wire around the front wheel like a frame.
Plus some paper flowers in the basket, so cute hey?!?!?

Lastly I added in a title from a yellow paint chip tab, my go to titles.

So what do you think? I haven't put a photo in which I know is a bit weird, but I'm really enjoying just creating at the moment without using a photo.

Would love some feedback on what you think of my page...and if you've used a BIG embellishment in this way before.

Happy Mal

Love you THIS much | Michelle Stokes

Hello D-lish friends & fans! It's Michelle back today with a new layout share that was super quick to create. Love when you get an idea that comes together so well. For this layout I've scrapped some mini photos of my 2 loves on an 8.5x11inch layout

I chose the smaller size layout as lately I've been struggling with ideas on how to fill the page with different ideas and products, and I tend to keep doing the same things over and over again. So with this smaller size layout, I felt I had achieved something great. I chose a couple of the Scribble circle with stars Creative Cuts and popped them off the background in 3 places using some foam tape. In each of the 2 larger circular pieces Ive added the photos, and in the largest circle I also added an extra Creative cut as the title for the layout. This piece was within the December advent calendar.

In the top left piece I've added a couple of labels from a past Just Add paper kit, a pick n place bow, faceted enamel dots, Little Birdie flower and a star shape creative cut to complete the cluster.

To balance out the clusters on the page I created this tiny one with some more of the Little Birdie flowers an enamel dot and creative cut pieces.

These 2 are seriously so much fun (most of the time HAHA) 

Lastly I added a couple of bits from past Just Add Paper kits to form the base of this cluster, then added another star Creative Cut, Little Birdie flower, enamel dots and some ink splatters to finish it all off.

I've not added any journalling as I felt the page was just right as is, but if in future I felt like adding any I would add it to the back of the layout. 

Well thats all from me today, short and sweet for this post, thanks for stopping by to check it out!
Until next time, Happy Scrapping.

'Because' by Amy

Hello D-Lish Scraps fans!

Welcome back to the new school year! I hope you had a restful summer.

Today I am sharing my page sample for this month's inspiration board.

The colour palette for this month’s Inspiration Board is divine. I just love the bright colours.

Also, seeing as it has a romantic notion to it, I thought that I would use a romantic quote! It is often nice to use romantic quotes or words of wisdom as a means to lift peoples’ spirits – or as another way of expressing your love for this person. After I assembled my page, using scraps of patterned paper, it was time to embellish my page.

As you can see here, I have used one of my big favourites from the D-Lish Scraps store: Paper Doilies.

On top of the paper doily, I have adhered a die-cut and embossed heart that I made.
The cute pink bow is from the store. These bows are great as they also have the right dimensions for card making – and they do come in a range of gorgeous colours. I have used a shaped wooden heart button. If you have a look in the store, there are other shapes to check out.

I used another favourite next – D-Lish Dots! The ones used here are from the faceted range. Divine!

I have deliberately kept the page quite simple and clean. I didn’t want to add too much detail to my cluster on the bottom right hand corner.

On top of washi tape, from past Just Add Paper kits, I have placed a small bundle of paper flowers. I chose hot pink tea roses as it goes with my colour palette. The tea roses do come in a gorgeous array of colours! Addictive! The gold vinyl puffy heart is from the ‘Hello Sugar’ JAP kit… and ‘Voila!’ … the page is now complete.

Thank you for stopping by to have a look.

Ciao for now, Amy.

"23 years" by Jasmine Shea

Hello hello.

I am sharing a page today about my hubby and I.  
We just celebrated our 23rd Wedding Anniversary.  
We have officially been married for more than half of our lives....
and that doesn't count for the 4 years we were together before we got married....
a long time but a wonderful time and best off all,
4 beautiful children from that marriage. 
I now look forward to our next 23 years together.

This page came about by fluffing around with my D-lish Scraps Advent Calendar goodies that I have from December.  
Seriously, if you didn't buy the Calendar last year, make sure you do this year.  
Everything is matching, there were soooooo many goodies and it was just fun to open a new packet everyday.

This is how each pack was wrapped
 so there were little circle journal spots with the days on them which then became the years we have been married.
I randomly added the circles in my background (and also used  the stencil from one of the packs in my background along with some ink) and just added a little sequin or resin flower, also in the packs, to cover the word day.

I then highlighted the "23" which became my title along with some words from one of the wordfetti pieces out of the packs.

Then finishing off with lots of pretty flowers, hearts, bows and flair buttons
my page was complete.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a Happy Scrappy Week.

"You and Me" by Anthea

Happy Valentine's Day to you all.  I hope that you are all being spoilt by your loved ones.  I had full plans of doing a lovely dovey LO of my hubby and I, but I saw this photo and decided that this is the one I was going to scrap with today. 
I started off with paint through the D-lish number stencil over another circle stencil - I am guessing I should have had the smaller stencil closer to the page than the big circle as the paint went everywhere! I decided to keep going anyway as I still liked the effect.  While my paint brush was wet, I painted my die cut and splatter bits of paint everywhere.
I then stuck down bits and pieces from my D-lish stash. I have enamel stickers and faceted enamel dots.  I also cut up a journal sheet from the Christmas package from last year. 
I then did the unthinkable....I smudged my paint - there was no covering it easily. I tried a whole bunch of things, but everything looked completely out of place so I grabbed my washi tapes and went around the whole of my page with it. 
I am still in two minds as to if I like it or not - but it certainly looks better than the big smudge of paint it is covering.  (well not quite covering - because if you look closely you can still see it.) 
I then added a piece of wire around the photo to highlight it.  I just stuck it on in a kind of random fashion.  You can be more precise if you like, but I like messy. I don't have one of those long staplers, so I just staple onto the carpet and then turn my LO up the other way and push the ends in manually.  It works a treat for me.  :)
Then, to finish the whole LO off I put on my big flower from D-lish.  I adore this flower so much and knew that it would really make the yellow and orange pop. This actually comes from the clearance section and is a single flower from a shabby chiffon rose trim. 
All in all I am pretty happy with my LO.  I hope you enjoy it too.
I would especially like to know what you do to cover your mistakes?  Or do you just start again?  I am constantly making mistakes - usually because I am too impatient to wait for my LO to dry - I can use all the tips I can get.
Till next time
Take care
