Shine - Emma Zappone

Happy Monday everyone,
I'm here to share my last layout for this month.
This page is created and inspired with this months JAP kit. It is a completely black and white kit which allows you to interpret which ever way you wish, which is just awesome.
I decided to keep the colours very simple and let the kit speak for itself........

I also filtered my photo to match the colour tones. We had just had a farewell for some friends and the theme was 1920s, perfect for how I wanted to use this kit. So to add to the glam I added some silver embossing powder to the 'shine' title and a couple of the chipboard diamonds.

I also added micro beads to the large diamond and onto the main white flower, just to bling it up.
The kit has so much choice in it and it makes for fun scrapping. 
But I did add a couple of extra embellishment such as the journal its tag an additional washi tape, and one of the cute little butterflies that are in the shop now.
 ( just can't help myself but add more , lol) 

Tomorrow is a new month so why not check out the new JAP kit and be inspired by it.
You never know what you might create with it.
Hope you have enjoyed my shares this month, and will catch you in December.
Till then , scrap you later,
Em. Xx

JBoys - Emma Zappone

Hope you are having an awesome Sunday! 
Today I share with you my second Layout, and it's totally boyish. 
I love this photo of my son with all his mates. They had the best day together,
 and this photo captures that. 

I used no paper with this page (except the background of course) and only a little mixed media. I used an impasto paste which dries clear so I could stamp over it, and ink it in places.

And i used plenty of D-lish goodies to make my page awesome.

I used 2 gorgeous flairs and some left over wood stars and 2 different washi tapes to add layers. 

I love the punchinella and cut it up roughly to add it all over the place and create interest. I also used a quote pebble and some wood quote bubbles. 
Finished it all off with a tab of Awesome. 
I love how grungy and pre-teen this feels. 
Maybe you could try and create a layout without paper? Would love to see what you come up with. 
I'll catch ya tomorrow with my final share. 
Till then, Em. Xx

U wear flowers in your hair - designed by Emma Zappone

Well hello there,
I'm back today with my first share for this month.
And I couldn't help myself but share the layout I created with the JAP kit from last month! 
I loved it all, then the brakes hit.......
I have 2 amazing boys and this kit was a little on the pretty side, hmmmm what to do.
So I pinched a photo from my cousin of one of her gorgeous girls and created this.......

And it worked perfectly! I loved having fun with all the pretty things. I'm not scared to use pretty on my boy pages but this one just asked me to scrap a girl, lol!

The kit makes pages just come together so easily, but I added a few extra things to it, like, the coloured arrow, an extra washi which I made into feathers with the washi from the kit. 
I cut up the straw to make for a different element on the page with additional cluster.

And I decided to leave the pinwheel veneer as was, just added a little glitter to it and pierced a hole through it for the brad. These pinwheels are still available in the shop along with some other extra kit bits. 

I hope you enjoyed my first share for this month. 
I'll see you all tomorrow with another to hopefully inspire.
Scrap ya later, Em. Xx

Ballet Shoe - An Off The Page Project | Krisy Podolak

Today is my last share for this month and I decided to show you a little off the page project I have been working on.  This project shows how versatile D-lish goodies can be.  They aren't just for Scrapbooking.

 I had this idea earlier this year and spent a few months searching out my main ingredient - Ballet Shoes.
I am not a dancer, never have been.  I've never even tried on a pair of ballet shoes.  But I have a secret obsession with Ballerinas and even more so after seeing the Russian Ballet of The Ugly Duckling in Moscow a few years ago.
I managed to find some second had Blochs (Fancy brand name) Ballet slippers as a great price, perfect for my idea.

I should note here, until about 8 weeks ago I had only heard of Frozen.  I had no desire to know what all the fuss was about but then my mum decided to by the movie for my daughter.  I have now watched it on average 6 times a day - nearly every day since.  And my daughter has a whole collection of "Princess" dresses that she regularly wears - EVERYDAY! 
I started this shoe before I had seen the movie and without knowing - it was totally ELSA. So, I added some Elsa inspiration to finish it all off.

To put this together, covered the shoe in paper strips and pearl shine then I added decorated details.  Pearl strings, glitter and of course D-lish flowers.  Roses in white and blue and some wax blossoms.  I then added some snowflake buttons I managed to buy on a garage sale site.  The shoe was not complete without a Sequin bow.

Here's some close ups...

I'm not one hundred percent sure how I will display these.  Whether I will shadow box frame them or add some sort of hanger.   What do you think?  I'd definatly love some ideas. Feel free to leave your ideas in the comments.

Memo to Myself | Krisy Podolak

Hi, It's Krisy back again today. 
 It's no secret I love a bit of mixed media so the layout I'm sharing today is just that.
Mixed media can seem a bit daunting but to be honest its all trial and error and lots of layers.  This layout I created for the White + One Colour challenge. This month the colour was GRAPE.

My background is a wash of Purple Dylusions ink to start and then I added the layers.  A layer of Gyprock tape (you can pick this up from Bunnings), then some modelling paste applied through the SFX Rose Stencil.  Once this was dry I added more details through a square stencil.  Once it was dry, I added my embellishments.  Some white roses break up the purple a bit. I added some more white details in the form of the chipboard roses that I just coated in a layer of Gesso.  There is some typed journalling, thread and Rhinstones.  The layout was not finished without a Sequin bow. My favourite!

Here are some up close details...

Shine | Krisy Podolak

Hi D-lish lovelies, 
It's Krisy and it's my turn to share some things I have created this month.  
Today, I am sharing a layout created using my new obsession - Just Add Paper Kits.

This months After Five Kit would have been perfect for an elegant awards ceremony or awards night but being a Stay at Home mum - these events are in my past working life.  (For the moment anyways.)  So, I decided to scrap this photo of my daughter dancing.  She is a real princess and loves to dance and I thought the wood veneer word Shine really worked with the photo.

I thought I would share with you what these little packets of goodness look like for those who haven't be able to snag one just yet.  I am always so excited when my little kit arrives. This is this months little monochrome packet of excitement.

I always have an idea of what I want to create when I order it but then when I open it I always get a million more ideas and don't know where to go from there.  Sometimes I have to sleep on it.

This month, I pondered for a bit but had a general idea and I love the finished product.  One thing from this kit that I have never played with before is punchinella and I love it.  I am going to be adding it to my stash with my next D-lish order.

Happy Heart | Mandy Melville

Hello again D-lish friends!

It's Mandy here again today with my final share for the month. This layout is loaded up with lots of D-lish goodies!!

"Happy Heart"

I really love this photo of my kids and I that was taken on Mothers Day this year. I don't get in photos with my kids as much as I should, so Mothers Day is always a good excuse to have a photo taken with them... It's kind of mandatory in our house! This year was extra special because it was my first Mothers Day that I celebrated with my little Eleanor!

To start my layout off, I added some stamping to my background using a Kaisercraft stamp, and then layered some patterned papers as a base for my photo. Behind the photo you can see that I added a paper doily.

Let's take a look at some closeups so that you can see all of the D-lish goodies that I've used...

Along the top of my layout I've laid two strips of patterned paper as well as a strip of the black skinny washi tape. Then in the top left hand corner of my layout, I've added a black sequin bow along with a tangelo starflower. These are really pretty, and I especially love this tangelo colour!

I tucked a shipping tag between the paper layers and used this to journal on. I also tied some black and white cotton twine to the tag. To the top right hand corner of my photo I've attached a natural wooden peg. You can also see here one of the words from the black Minifetti sheet. These sheets are awesome - I think I need to buy them in every colour!

To the left of my photo, I added a die cut from the November Just Add Paper kit, another starflower, and a Freckled Fawn arrow paperclip.

To the right of my photo I created a pretty flower cluster that includes a black wild rose, another starflower, and two white sweetheart blooms. I LOVE the wild roses... they are one of my faves at the moment!!

In the bottom right hand corner of my layout I included a couple more phrases from the black Minifetti sheet. You can also see here that I've added a heart wooden button.

I finished my layout off by scattering a few black sequins (these were from the current Just Add Paper kit).

Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my layout! That's my last share for this month... next time I am back here on the D-lish blog, it will be nearly Christmas!!! (EEEK, I'd better start getting organised!!). I hope that you manage to squeeze in some scrapping time in the busy lead up to Christmas!
