Snapshot.. By Michelle

Hi Everyone, 
Sadly today is my last layout share for this current D-lish Design Team

I would like to thank Amanda for this wonderful opportunity the last 6 months, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of letting my creativity flow with D-lish goodies! 

This page started out completely different. It was originally meant to be a full page of white cardstock/mixed media background, based on the current Inspiration Board.. But that wasn't working for me, so I ripped half the page up and started again, by mounting the best part to an older Amy Tangerine paper. So happy with how its turned out, I hope you like it too!

 To make the background Ive used 2 different shades of blue distress ink, then once dry, stencilled the arrows with a Scrap fx stencil, coral coloured distress ink and some glitter paste. Lastly some splatterings of white ink, teal and gold color shine.

I started the embellishing with the photo mat. 
Ive grabbed a paper bag and some matching hand dyed muslin, and layered with a doily 
The Felt bow finished the photo off and made Leila look even Cuter!

Next up, Ive layered a journal it from a past kit, with a wordfetti strip, the strip from the bottom of the pattern paper, and a few other coloured Journal Its

 A sprinkling of Resin flowers, a resin bird, flair button from a past kit and enamel shapes make up the last of the embellishments for the page

Thanks for joining me the past few days
I look forward to seeing what the rest of the team creates for our last month of Inspiration

Happy Scrapping

This Crazy Face.. by Michelle

Hi Everyone
Michelle back today with another Layout share
This one features a layout based on one of the current Cyber Crop Challenges, set by Sue

Its also Colour palette that I don't think Ive every used before.. Purple and orange with black, white and Silver! How very halloween!!

Love the sketch Sue has designed, so many fun layers!
Once again Ive gone straight to my paper bag stash rather than my pattern papers. 
Ive also added in some silver and white spotted tissue paper (from a past kit) and more fun punchinella!
All layered up together with some strips of washi tape - both colours are part of one roll, how cool!

A couple of Journal its layered with a Wooden Camera mixed with some Resin pieces and a paper flower make up this cluster

Love using Wordfetti, for adding some extra 'journalling' of sorts to the page. So many fun little sentiments can be found within the range

And lastly the title made from black Thickers, and a few left over strips of paper bag, tissue paper and washi strips finish the page off.

Thanks for stopping by today, I will be back tomorrow with my last page for the month
Happy Scrapping

Document Happy.. by Michelle

Hello Everyone!
Michelle here today, with the first of my 3 last pages for the current D-lish Scraps Team
I have really enjoyed being part of the team over the last 6 months. If you love D-lish goodies, then I encourage you to apply now for the next group of inspiring designers.

Now back to the layout ;)
Today, like the last 5 months, Im starting with an Inspiration Board layout
A reminder of the board which was shared HERE yesterday

I drew inspiration from the chevron patterns, feathers, birds and arrows. The Teal, blue, gold and white colours within the board are one of my favourite colour combinations that I just don't use enough, and Ive even added some slight hints of oranges. 

 Love how this has turned out. Such an easy sketch to play around with. And, Im really liking using up some of my paper bag stash. I've layered up 2 5x7 bags by opening them up and using them like I would pattern papers. 

Ive used leftover strips from the chevron bag along the top and bottom of the page, layered with some offcuts of velum, embellished with a Resin Bird and enamel shapes, then splattered with Gold Color Shine

Main cluster of the page made with feathers (from a recent Crate Paper collection, perfect colours for this layout, and complimented the D-lish embellishments) an Arrow paper clip, Journal It, some wooden buttons - one that Ive added some extra glitter to, and a flair button

I made my title using glitter paper and Heidi Swapp metal word dies, Ive stuck the words directly to the photos, which are mounted onto vellum, then a banner strip of punchinella

Theres some repetition of embellishments and clusters around this page, this mini cluster made of more wooden buttons and a Flair button

And lastly Ive mirrored the same strip and birds from the top of the page along the bottom, this time with 2 resin birds and a splattering of gold Color Shine.

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to share your projects with us on the link up to the right. 
Back with more tomorrow
Happy Scrapping

September Inspiration Board Challenge

Hello spring!
My most favourite time of the year. The days are getting warmer, but not too hot, and the nights are still cool enough to snuggle. It's time to throw open the doors and windows and invite the sunshine back indoors. 

With the change of season we have a fresh new board to reveal today. Introducing ...

Take Flight is all about setting yourself free and loving the life you live. With the boldness of teal and the subtle peach tones, what better to compliment them than a elegant dash of gold. 

The coordinating 'Just Add Paper' kit for this board is a cracker! I have reinvented some old favourites to suit and thrown in some fabulous 'one off' pieces to round out the mix. The kit will be available in limited numbers at 7.30pm AEST tonight from the D-lish Scraps store. 

Of course you certainly do not need the kit to play along. Everyone is more than welcome to join in. You can find all the rules for entering in the 'Current Inspiration Board & Rules' tab at the top of the page. Please remember that the colour palette is compulsory and must be used as is in your entry. The sketch however, is just there as a kickstarter should you need the extra inspiration. 

We have a $30 D-lish Scraps store credit to give away to the 'best' entry and one random entrant will receive next months 'Just Add Paper' kit for free! 

So get creating and get your entry in to be in the running for these fabulous prizes.

Happy Memories..... with Cindy

Hi D-lish Scraps fans, thanks for joining me here today...

for my final post for this month I have another layout to share with you all "Happy Memories"

 I love the memories these pics bring back of my old beautiful boy.... Nanook, enjoying his favourite treat... a raw carrot... Carrots were his absolute favourite treat...

To create this layout, I started by creating my background with acrylic inks and then I used the Scrap FX Ripples stencil with some modelling paste to create loads of texture on top...

 I used a Freckled Fawn Arrow paperclip to create my lower cluster, along with a Journal It's Spool Top SentimentsHydrangea petalwashi tapesequins, crochet mini doily and some hand dyed muslin...

 for this little cluster I used; a Flair ButtonHydrangea petal, crochet mini doily, sequinshand dyed muslin and a Journal Tag ....

and finally I used the Journal It's Spool Top Sentiments, some more sequinshand dyed muslin and washi tape...

I hope you've enjoyed this months shares

Oh Boy .......... by Cindy

Hi D-lish fans, thanks for joining me here.... 
 today I'd thought I'd share with you all the layout I created for the current cybercrop challenge over in The Scrap Suite.... "oh Boy"

 I got the colour challenge for this cybercrop... and I have been loving using blue and green colour combinations of late so this is the combo I chose for the challenge... 

A little about my layout.... I created the background using the ScrapFX Ripples stencil, this is a fabulous stencil....

 I used one of the fabulous Quatrefoil paper bags to mat the photo and added some white punchinella, seed beads, hand dyed muslin and a flair button...
I used coloured wire to create letters for my title... and used the Boy wood veneer and stars from a recent Just add paper kit... and finally I scattered a few sequins....

So there is still plenty of time to participate in the challenge and all the other great challenges of the current cybercrop over in The Scrap Suite, why not come on over and check out all the other challenges and join in all the fun....

till next time

Smile .... by Cindy

Hi D-lish Scraps fans, thanks for joining me here today.
For my share today I have a layout I created.... "Smile"
this is another gorgeous pic of my niece Chelsea showing off her adorable smile... isn't she so gorgeous...

I decided to create this layout in monotone greys and white, but I could have easily achieved a sticking effect using a monochromatic approach in orange or blue or pink or or or the choices are infinite with the the amazing ranges at D-lish... 

In the pic you can see a silver sequin bow(I love these bows)... a white Heirloom flower and a grey After 5's flower aren't these flowers gorgeous... with such pretty centres... if you look closely you can also see a coloured paper doily sticking out...

Here is yet another white Heirloom flower (I removed the largest petals to make it slightly smaller and give a little variety)... I used the "smile" flair button from the defining words set.... I used a silver spiral stamen (I love these... you can stretch and pull them to any size and shape you want)... I added some adhesive silver pearls (and these are on clearance at the moment so grab yourself a bargain)...

I also used some plain muslin... but if you are looking for some coloured muslin, check out the fabulous range here...

Finally, the last pic shows a great close up of some of the background stamping, and Chelsea... which is the Scrap FX mini alphabet...don't forget if you can't find the Scrap FX you want in the D-lish Scraps store then ask Amanda, she is happy to order it for you...

till next time
