Out of this world - Emma Zappone

Hi everyone,
 Emma here today on the D-lish blog for the next few days to keep you company.
I hope your Tuesday is going to be a great one.
Today's layout is inspired my Mandy's cyber crop challenge over in the Scrap suite.
Here is my layout and the sketch challenge that Mandy set.

I decided that instead of using papers on the side or middle I would use string to get the shape of the sketch. And for those of you that know me, I'm not really a big doily user so I used some black punchinella behind the photo instead. And then I reversed the side of the embellishments to suit my photos.

I think that the great thing about a sketch is it gives you a great starting point, and then you can use elements of the sketch that works to your advantage. 
A lot of the time it's hard to find that starting point.
I liked that this sketch was open to interpretation.

I used minimal embellishments, opting for this because the background paper is full of fun and pattern.
I popped colour on my background by colouring in a few different squiggles with gel pens.
I hope you liked my first share for this month, I can't wait to share my next 2 as I've gone with more of a girly feel. 😁 

D-lish goodies used today are: Punchinella 
                                                Journal its
                                                  Dusty attic chipboard
                                                 Star wood veneers
                                                  Coloured arrows
                                                Wooden Peg

See you all tomorrow. 
Em. Xx

Love This | Krisy Podolak

The month is almost over and this is my last share for June.   While I was tidying my craft room also know as moving stuff around, I found this paper sample from a Scrapbooking Memories magazine by Cocoa Vanilla and I love the colours.  They worked well with some of the new stuff I had recently purchased from the D-lish store.

It seems that this month all my layouts feature the word love in the title.  I must be feeling it. I went back to basics with some traditional scrapbooking.  Little or no mixed media and I kept the colour palette fairly neutral with pops of yellow and blue.  My daughter who is featured in this layout is named Autumn, so the colours I used remind me of Autumn - the season not the girl.

To frame the photo I used a raw wood veneer frame and stamped on it with some stayzon ink using a small roller stamp from my collection.

I added in some burlap and paper leaves, a tiny wooden peg from my Just Add Paper Kit and the Navy Sparklets from the June Just Add paper Kit, a leaf button (I would have added more but that is all I had left) from the D-lish store and these awesome yellow Daisy flowers.

This layout is a little more traditional than my usual mixed media but I really love the way it turned out.  Sometimes it's good to get back to basics and just make pretty stuff.

LOVE | Krisy Podolak

As promised yesterday, I am sharing my second layout that I created using the Just Add Paper Kit "Sweet and Sassy".  

 For this layout I kept with the moodboards colours and created a mixed media background that I then stamped grids randomly over and cross stitched a hot pink title.  I then used the gold washi to create a banner on the string that tied the kit together.  This whole layout was created from the kit.  The only extra things I added was a Charms Creations Circle and some gold sequins.

I love this layout.  The colours are perfect toghether.  If you missed out on the kit you may be able to pick up some of the Kit bits in the D-lish store.

There is also a process video up on POPLEOPOD on YouTube if you would like to create something like this of your own.

Here are a few more close ups:

You are Loved | Krisy Podolak

Hi D-lish Lovelies, 
Krisy here for the next few days to share what I have created this month.  Today's share is using  the June Just Add Paper kit "Sweet and Sassy".  I actually created 2 layouts from this kit, I will share the second one tomorrow.

For this layout I used the Sketch as a starting point and then picked up colours from my photo that worked with some of the embellishments from the kit.  I left out the pink and focused on the blues.
Here is my layout:

To the kit, I  added some Gold Punchinella,  a resin bird and a Cambridge doily.  As you can see, all you need to do to a Just Add Paper kit, is just add one left over scrap piece of paper and you can put together a beautiful layout.  The sketch even comes with it. BONUS!

Here are a few close ups:

If you haven't already, mark the the 1st in your diary as that is release day for the Just Add Paper Kits. I just follow D-lish Scraps on Facebook - they put up teasers during the day and announce when the kits are live on the website.    They don't last very long at all as there are limited numbers so don't miss out on the next one...it's in a few days!

I also have a process video for your viewing please - head over and check it out on POPLEOPOD on YouTube.

You & Me | Mandy Melville


I'm back today to share my final project for the month! This layout features a photo of my lovely Mum & I on Mothers Day this year...

"You & Me"

On this layout I used patterned papers from the Paige Evans Fancy Free collection and teamed them up with some super pretty D-lish Scraps embellishments! I love that no matter what patterned papers you use, there's always embellishments to co-ordinate from the D-lish Scraps store!

Here are some closeups of my layout...

For my title, I used a Corbett Creations wood veneer phrase from a previous Just Add Paper kit. This particular one was a limited release for the kit and is now sold out, but if you love wood veneer words, head on over to the store to check out the ones that have been restocked this week! Last time these sold out really fast, so make sure you get in quick!

Here you can see the layering underneath my photo. I like to add lots of dimension to my pages, so I popped some foam tape behind my photo to lift it up. I tucked one of the 6" lace doilies in between my paper layers... I love how delicate and pretty they are! I also added a flair button from the Mothers Day set on the left hand side of my photo.

One of my go-to items when I'm creating a layout are the D-lish wordfetti sheets. I used a phrase from the Everyday Moments sheet on this layout. They are a great way of adding little sentiments to your projects. Here you can also see one of the wooden flower buttons that I added to my layout. I stuck an enamel dot in the middle of each one to give them a little pop of colour. I think they look really pretty!

To finish my layout off I added a sub-title in the bottom right hand corner, using the Kaisercraft Alpha Stickers.

Thanks so much for popping in and taking a look at my layouts over the past few days. I hope that I've inspired you to have a play with your D-lish embellies! We always love to see your projects featuring D-lish goodies, so please come and share them with us in our Facebook group, The Scrap Suite!

I'll be back in July to share more projects with you. Until then, happy scrapping!

Blossom Bunny | Mandy Melville

Hi D-lish friends!

I'm back today to share another layout with you! This one is all about my little girl's bunny that she has had since she was born...

"Blossom Bunny"

I started my layout off by cutting a large title on my Silhouette Cameo and backing it with patterned paper from the Maggie Holmes Bloom collection. Along the top and bottom of the layout I added a strip of patterned paper, and then also added a strip of pink spotted washi tape along the top.

Once I had an idea of where I would place my photo on the layout, I added some stencilling to the background using modeling paste and the Criss Cross Dusty Attic stencil. I like the subtle texture that this adds without detracting from the overall design.

Then I was ready to add my photo and embellishments!

Here are some closeups...

Up in the top left hand corner of the layout I created a cluster that includes a pastel journal spot, a flair button (from the Washi Hearts Set A), and a mini rose. You can also see here one of the wooden flower buttons... I added three of these to my layout to create a visual triangle.

Here you can see all of the lovely layers behind my photo, including patterned papers, a 4.5" inch white doily, and a dip dye tag. I also tucked a phrase from the Sugar & Spice Wordfetti sheet under the lefthand side of the photo. Up on the top corner of the photo, I attached a mini wooden peg and a mini yellow rose.

On the bottom right hand corner of the photo I added a gorgeous pink wild rose and another flair button. The wild roses are still my favourite flowers! To finish my layout off, I added a few enamel dots.

I'll be back tomorrow to share my last layout for June. Until then, happy scrapping!

You are Loved | Mandy Melville

Hello friends!

It's lovely to be back here on the D-lish Scraps blog sharing my June projects with you! The first project that I'm sharing today is my layout for the current Inspiration Board Challenge! Here's my page, featuring a photo of my two beautiful girls...

"You are Loved"

Here's a reminder of the Inspiration Board, "Sweet & Sassy"...

Oh my goodness, I absolutely love this board! The colour palette is just divine!

Most of the embellishments on my layout are from the June Just Add Paper kit. These kits are such great value and make putting a layout together super easy! I loved this month's kit so much that I purchased the kit plus extra kit bits so that I don't run out of my fave items!

I started my layout off by creating a fun mixed media background using the colours from the inspiration board. I first used the Triangles Dusty Attic stencil with hot pink Distress Ink. I then created a navy paste by mixing navy Heidi Swapp Colorshine with modeling paste, and applied it through the Mini Heart Dusty Attic stencil. Lastly, I used the 'packaging technique' to create a watercolour look with teal Distress Ink.

Once I had my background completed, I created a mat for my photos using a gorgeous 6" lace doily, a pink diagonal stripe 5x7 bag (cut down to size), and the polka dot crepe paper from the kit. I love creating layers behind my photos! You don't always have to use patterned paper for your layers... There are lots of items in the D-lish Scraps store that you can use for layering!

Here are some closeups of my layout...

Up in the top left hand corner of my layout I created a small cluster to balance out the larger cluster. I used the journal card from the journal pack to write my journaling (I realised afterwards that I wrote on it upside down because the tiny little hearts are upside down! Oh well!). I then added the wood veneer ampersand and the hot pink rose, (both from the kit),  as well as a glitter chipboard heart to complete the cluster.

On the bottom right hand corner of my photo I created another cluster using more pretty embellies from the kit. This cluster includes one of the gorgeous foiled flair buttons, a navy cherry blossom, a super cute tassel, and a hessian heart from my stash. I'm in love with tassels at the moment, so I was so excited to see one in this month's kit (I may have bought a few extras of these as well!).

Another one of my favourite items in the kit was this foiled die cut card! I knew I had to include this on my layout! I framed it with some spotted navy patterned paper and popped some foam tape underneath to give it extra dimension. I then added another one of the foiled flair buttons and a mini blue rose to the top right hand corner of the card. I finished my layout off by scattering the navy Sparklets around the page.

I hope that I've inspired you to play along with our Inspiration Board challenge this month! Link up your layouts here in the sidebar by the end of the month to be in the running to win a prize!

I'll be back tomorrow with another layout to share with you!
