“Fabulous Moment” by Wendy Smith 005

I have used some Blue Zinnias, Forget Me Nots – Yellow, Wood Veneer Mini Frame - Postage Stamp, and Dew Drops - Arrows


I have also used several journal cards from the Journal Its - Monochrome Pack - Red Lipstick and Cosmos Daisies - Orange


And along with the zinnias, cosmos and forget me nots, I have also used Mini Cabbage Rose Grab Bag and Wood Chips - Chevron Words


It is great to use up so many bits and pieces in your stash to create a colourful layout. Thank you for the great opportunity to be on the team Amanda and for allowing me to share my creations with the scrapping communitt that is D-lish and Scrap Suite.

The Games we Play…

Hi Wendy here, cant’ believe these are my last few layouts I will be sharing on D-lish Scraps. I have loved my 6 months on this DT, so next time it is advertised apply and have a go.. you won’t regret it.

This layout today showcases many of my all time favourite pieces from the shop. Flairs, doilies, and of course wooden veneers.

“A Quick Game of Chess” by Wendy Smith 001

I made a feature out of the Heart from the wooden veneer pack, by winding some of the blakc and white cotton twine around it. I have also added some of the wood veneer people.


In this cluster I have used Flair - About A Boy, Freckled Fawn paperclips and a wood veneer star.


Here I have used Mini Wooden Peg – Red, and another flair from Flair - About A Boy along with Wood Chips - Chevron Words, and of course a Coloured Paper Doilies - Dove Grey


Happy shopping, and hope this has inspired you to great!

cheers Wendy x x

March Inspiration Board

Welcome to another month of fun with our Inspiration Team!

Today marks the start of a new season, which normally would mean a brand new team.. However the current team have all had so much fun the last 3 months that we wanted to continue inspiring you with our creations for a few more months!

In addition to our team, we would love for you to make welcome Rebecca Dammash. A regular member of the Scrap Suite, and recent 'Queen of the Crop'.

Sadly however, we are saying goodbye to one fellow designer Kathie. We wish her well and hope to still see her familiar face within the Scrap Suite.

Now for this months Board reveal........

We present to you Caribbean Skies

and boy have the team blown it out of the ball park this month :)

Rebecca Dammash - Together
Inspiration came from all different parts of the board, Colour, Sketch, Frames and Flowers.

Beth Jarrett - Craft
Inspired by the geometry of the sketch and the frames in the inspiration photos.

Danielle VertiganThe Zoo 
The elements in the palette really are what's behind this layout. The panelling of the timber, the frames and the squares where another representation of them aswell as the deer and flowers.

Pamela StaveleyGrandads Cowgirls 
Inspiration was taken from the colours & the flowers.

Sandra BrimelowBubble
I was inspired by the colours, and I worked a loose interpretation of the sketch, flipping it, and extending the frame around the 3 photos. The bubble wrap stamping behind the photos is in place of the squares shown in the sketch.

Michelle StokesMy happy Place
Inspired by the colour palette and the embellishments that I found within my stash 

Judith ArmstrongPretty Polly 
Inspiration taken from the frames in bottom left hand side and felt flowers.

And for something completely different, as we welcome all types of paper craft for this challenge..

I am a sucker for anything gold foil, wood veneer, and puffy stickers :-D

The products I have used from this range are the journal cards, wood strips, wood beads, gold puffy stickers, drop stickers, ephemera pack.

The Day of Love - with Anna Allan...

Hi again.
I'm back with a quick little project I whipped up especially for documenting Feb 14 - the day of LOVE...Valentines Day!

I made these cards especially for my Project Life album - slot these into the pockets as well as some photos of me and my loved ones and that's a wrap!

I created these cards using watercolour paper and colouring them with - you guessed it - watercolours! ;-)
I then stamped them randomly with hearts.
Then it was time to embellish them and add the sentiments.

Thanks for dropping by!

Another birthday card - with Anna Allan...

Oh my gosh!
I am so pleased with myself for getting my card making groove on!
Considering it is not something that comes naturally - I am all for VERY simple designs.

So here is my 4-ingredient card I created.
Can't go wrong with strips of washi for a background really hey? Quite effective I reckon!
I then used a wood cupcake that I coloured with inks.
And those D-lish dots are perfect as sprinkles don't ya think!
The Cardfetti sentiments are great to use to add meaningful words to your card.

Thanks for looking!

Inspired by Lynn - with Katie

Good Morning and welcome to my last post for February. Wow, another month almost down, a bit scary how quickly this year seems to be going by already.

Any hoo, you can't stop time, so let's use it to scrap instead! Today I am bringing you a page inspired by the lovely Lynn and her sketch for the February cyber crop. Again, you still have time to participate in this as we are now giving you until the next cyber crop to get your entries in! All you have to do is be a part of the Scrap Suite Facebook group (see the button in the sidebar to join) and read the rules for each challenge.

First up, here is the sketch:

And now for my take on the page:

We had such a fabulous time at Comic Con last year and I took so many photos (all on my phone mind you!) that my daughter and I are already planning on costumes for ourselves this year! While we were in the queue to have our photo taken with Orlando Bloom (Yes that Orlando Bloom! And he is absolutely gorgeous! That is a story for another page!) we found this group all dressed up as characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and they looked fabulous. So of course we asked to have a photo!

Lots of D-lish goodness on my page today. Let's start with the paper doilies, so useful and great for layering, love using the Journal It's journal spots, add a couple of flowers including a new pretty  pastel petal (love these!) and a little resin one and finish off with a bit of wood veneer and we are all good!

I have been having so much fun with my new Scrap Fx goodies too, check out the stencil work on my background using the chevron stencil. Use a bit of pumice stone distress ink and make it a subtle pattern on my background. I have just been loving using my little tubes of sequins that came with the monochrome mini-kits, and the flair came from one of these kits too. I really hope Amanda makes some more of these as I still have a few colours that I didn't get last time! I am also loving the new short arrow paper clips from Freckled Fawn (ok I love all Freckled Fawn!). I think I ended up getting them in every colour!

Using paper bags to mat your photo is so easy and there are so many colours and patterns you are spoilt for choice! The mixed bags are a great way to start as you get a rainbow of colours to choose from! I love adding wood veneer too, and sometimes these little speech bubbles just add the perfect touch. The tabs are another of my favourites, so easy to use and great for layering.

So that is it for me for the month, I hope that I have inspired you to join in with some of our monthly challenges. Even if only to give you a starting point for creating your next page!

Thanks for stopping by.

Katie x
