Totally Awesome by Agnus...

Hi again, I'm back for the very last time with my final design team share :(
 I have really loved being part of this fabulous team and am so sad that it's coming to an end but before I get all soppy on you, we'd better move onto my layout.

I have to admit that I'm not really a great photographer but sometimes I manage to capture a photo that I am very excited to scrap. When I have these type of photos I always try to let the picture tell the story and usually avoid adding too many things to the page. Ive found that the key to keeping it simple is choosing colours that are not going to distract from the photo, but you also want the page to pop which is where an unexpected bit of colour (like the yellow below) makes a big difference. 

I have been very keen to use the D-lish coloured tulle for quite some time and decided to layer several complementary shades to form a soft base for my photo. I love the floating effect the layers created and added a few die-cut elements between the layers for some extra depth. 

I normally keep my wood veneers raw but the colour wasn't really going to suit this page so I used silver embossing powder to dress up the veneers and while I was at it I also heat embossed a couple of enamel dots to match - it was a little bit fiddly but well worth it to have perfectly matching dots :)

Happy Memories by Agnus Kasprzak

Hi, Agnus here sharing a layout using some of my new D-lish Scraps goodies! I paired up some warm tones with a touch of black and white to create this layout featuring my little guy watching the sun go down after a lazy afternoon at the river.

 I loved the bold pattern of the Basic Grey paper but it was pretty overpowering on its own, which is why I only used a portion of it and layered a few neutral colours over the top to help break up the pattern. 

I used the manila shipping tags from the store to create a pocket for the jumbo ticket for my jounraling and a few simple strips of paper at the bottom of my page created the perfect spot for my title.

With A Heavy Heart!

I can not believe my time is up with D-lish Scraps.....please give me a minute, I need to go grab the tissue while I type this post. 

I also can not believe the amount of fun I have had creating awesome memories with some pretty awesome D-lish goodies! And well my stash went from one draw, to a draw, a divided storage box and a small box and maybe my bank account might be a little worse for wear. But seriously I don't care and hubby doesn't need to know!! LOL

So today with a heavy heart I share my last DT layout with your all. :(



Stepping out of my comfort zone and stepping into the flower zone I created this layout.  
I have finally been convert back to using flowers thanks to my awesome time at D-lish Scraps.

Thanks you so very very much Amanda for letting me create for you and your wonderful store. 

Keep on scrapping

Candy Cane Snowmen .. with Alz

I ordered a couple of stamps from Ingdigo Blu last month and as a thank you they included this gorgeous little snowman stamp which fits more than comfortably on a 3x3" piece of of cardstock. He was screaming out for me to make Christmas cards and with all the beautiful new products in stock in limes and reds, how could I resist? Besides Christmas is only about three months away and that time is going to fly! LOL it doesn't hurt to be prepared!

Candy Cane Snowmen

Essentially all I've done, apart from stamping the snowman, colouring him in and add a little glossy accents to his red buttons, is layer D-lish Scraps products on white cardstock cards. So, so easy to do. The products I've used include .. red and lime Coloured Doilies, lime Coloured Wire, rainbow mix Bitty Bags, red, white and green Spiral Stamens, 15mm green with red dot Printed Wooden Buttons, red and lime Pinwheel Blooms, and red Cosmos Daisies.

By the way, these cards would be fabulous for giving gift vouchers as the Bitty Bags are the perfect size for the gift cards!

Oh and keep in mind that you can create a card suite just like this is any colour combination you can think of. For example, pair up the silver and blue Doilies with the white Spiral Stamens and you have a match made in heaven for a white Christmas colour scheme. Just an idea for you to play with.

Anyways that's it for me today. More scrapping to do so I'm off to play with paper and glue.

Happy scrapping!   :)

Inspired by Agnus .. with Alz

During this month's cyber crop Agnus set a challenge to incorporate tags into your project. I love tags and had a layout I wanted to scrap for my SA travel album and so I went with the flow.

The sticky up plants

I had so much journaling I wanted to include, I decided to print it directly onto my background, leaving me the lower part of the page for my photo and to provide some balance.

I achieved this by using a long, panoramic style photo which I cut down from a 5x7" print; and then some layering with cardstock and patterned paper, and a number of D-lish Scraps embellishments. In my layers I have used a sage Coloured Doily, kraft mixed size Shipping Tags and a black Bitty Bag from the rainbow chevron pack.

My embellishments include .. a black Mini Wooden Peg, Freckled Fawn Wood Chips from the arrows pack and a Flair Button from the 2014 Script Words pack.

I love how this page turned out. I feel as though I achieved a happy medium between journaling and making a feature out of my photo for a travel album. Its good practice really .. I have six weeks of travelling around America to scrap one of these days!

Thanks for the inspiration Agnus!
