I can't believe that it is the end of April.. the month has just flown by. But I was very excited today when Amanda announced that Freckled Fawn products have hit the D-lish Scraps shelves and before you could shout the words Freckled Fawn 5 times fast, they were nearly all sold out! I think you might be lucky to find a pack or two remaining in the store. But if you missed out, never fear, there will be more restocks coming soon. It definitely pays to keep your eyes open and be very quick with your shopping cart at D-lish Scraps.
Chipboard- Mini Hearts
Chipboard- Pack- Arrows
Washi Masking Tape
Tiny Start Button Grab Bag
Large Resin Rose Grab Bag
Vintage Roses 2cm
D-lish Scraps has a vast array of Flair Buttons- bigger than any other online Aussie store that I can think of! No doubt you will find a print to compliment your project. Because my layout has 3 photos (which I rarely do) and they are quite busy, I wanted to keep my layout and embellishments simple enough to compliment my photos.
Flair Buttons Forest Friends
Chipboard Mini Hearts - I painted my heart, and used my pen to outline the shape, then mounted on ds foam tape
That is it from me for this post, I am off to a retreat tomorrow for the day and you can be sure I will be packing my entire D-lish Scraps stash to play with. Hopefully I will have lots to inspire you with upon my return ;)
Stay tuned for more posts from our fabulous design team, and enjoy your weekend!
Love Kate x

Have you met the 9th wonder of the world yet??
I bet you have roll or two in your scrap supplies!
Oh I love thee!
And because you are probably just like me, and have oodles of the gorgeous stuff, you are probably wondering how you can use it up so you don’t have to feel the associated guilt that comes from having so many rolls.
Am I right??
So why not use washi tape to alter alphas?
Just tear a strip of tape and place it on your alpha (I’ve used some Pink Paislee wood alphas)
The strips don’t have to line up or be the same thickness.
Just cover the whole alpha.
Then, using scissors or a craft knife, cut off the excess tape
and fold the sides down.
And it’s such a quick, mess-free and effective way to alter alphas and use up your washi tape.
You can see how I altered all the wood alphas in my title
on this monochrome page.
I also used a mini mirror butterfly
Have you noticed the trend to use metallics?
D-lish have some very cool gold washi tapes available in store right now
and I’ve used the fun triangle washi tape on this page, inspired by the April Kraft It Up Challenge
I’ve added a resin grid button
and finished off my page with a gorgeous white velvet leaf
and the last page I have to share with you I made using some of my all time favourite D-lish Scraps products
I’ve used some PVC Doilies, for some patches of white
and some sweet metal daisies for a dash of fun.
Hope you’ve found something fun in my post.

Today I am here to share some more layouts with you that I have created using the gorgeous D-lish Products.
The first page I have to share with you is an 8.5"x 11" size page. This was because I created it for the April challenge at SUYS which was to do one at this size! A little out of my comfort zone.
Layout title: This smile
D-lish products used:
The next page I have to share is a new favourite of mine. I created it for the current Scrap the Girls challenge, which was to use hexagons, paint or mist and buttons (and a pic of a girl).
Here is what I came up with:
Layout title: Love, kisses, adore
I used Gold embossing powder on top of the mini chipboard words and heat set it. It created a nice textured and of course sparkly effect.
I found the centre of the cherry blossom a little too stark so I decided to keep with the metallic theme and added a little bit of Old Gold paint to it to make it suit my layout more.
Recently I love adding texture to pages whether it is paint or mists or just extra layers. When I saw the tulle in the D-lish store I thought it would be perfect to add to a page of my little girl.
I further secured the tulle with another strip of adhesive. After this I actually added a strip of acid free sticky tape which is not pictured here.
I love adding strips of paper to the top and bottom of my layouts too lately. I decided instead of paper I would use washi tape and tear it in half. I then added it along the bottom and the top of the layout, layering as I went. I finished this look off by machine stitching along it with metallic gold thread.
