D-lish goodness

 
It's my turn to share some D-lish goodness!
 
I really love the variety of embellishments in
the D-lish store but, my absolute
favourite things are all here in this layout!
 
 

I love all the raw veneer in the shop - I love to leave it raw
and add it to layouts and projects that
are bursting with colour!
I'm also  huge fan of the flair button designs - these
love doodles flair are ridiculously cute!
 
 
 
 
 
I also adore the wordfetti . Amanda's own designs, they are
so fun and whimsical and totally complete any layout - the
cardfetti is just as awesome!
How about the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio wood
veneer?? Not many Aussie shops stock it and D-lish Scraps
have a great selection!

 
I am also loving this amazing Pink Pailsee papers
totally stunning!!!

 
Thanks so much for dropping by!

STG July Reveal

 
Good Morning!
Ok, winter - I think I've had
enough of you already!
For once, I'm dreaming of long, sticky hot
Summer days - this winter has really been a cold
one for us in QLD - anything under 15 degrees and it's
all over for us!
Lucky, I've had time to rug up and get into
the craft studio!
 
The sketch challenge for Scrap The Girls is
LIVE - come by and check out the amazing examples
by the creative team!
Here is the sketch:
 
 
 
 
 
 
and my example:
 


I've used some gorgeous Kaisercraft papers, as well
as Manor House Creations flowers and lots
of little trinkets - some Flourish with a Bling flourishes
are included also, I think they always finish off
a cluster of embellishments perfectly!
 
 
 
 
 
I am still in love with everything gold - although, copper
is starting to sneak it's way into my life - I've added
some sparkly, gold thickers for my title and some
splatters of Dylusions Ink.

 
Make sure you add this challenge to your list
of must do challenges for this month!!
Thanks for dropping by!

A Little share

 
 
Hello friends!
Well, I've had the craziest, wildest week
at work and needed some much sought after
scrappy time!
I've noticed that my scrapbooking has been
closely resembling my home décor style....
constantly evolving! I blame this
on all the yummy home décor goodies out there and the
ever constant release of delicious scrapbooking papers
and embellishments!!
Here's something I scrapped the other night.....
 



I really love adding layers to all of
my projects! I can't get enough of these little
moustaches - how cute are they??



 
I made this lollipop flower with some
denim and tulle - I really need to raid my fabric
stash more often, it's positively overflowing!
 
 
 
 
Have you noticed I'm trying a new layout size?
I really love scrapping and how versatile
and fun it can be - no rules!!
 
Thanks so much for dropping by!

A Trio of Cards

Hello bloggers!
One of my scrappy goals for 2015 is
to make more cards!
I love receiving hand made cards from family
and friends - I had to give back the love!
Luckily, there are so many gorgeous embellishments
in the D-lish store
 
 
 
I added a splash of wood veneer stars - micro 
as well as a touch of blue twine
The sentiments are a part of the amazing Cardfetti sets that
Amanda makes - so they are totally unique!!
 
 
 
I coloured the silhouette of the clouds
on the inside for a fun, quirky touch and adhered
some elements with 3D tape to make them pop!
 
 



 
 
I used the Cardfetti sentiments here again - aren't they fabulous??
I added strips of patterned paper and a strip of this
washi tape from the Past kits and bits section in the store.
You can find some great embellishments here!
I love the recent "dipped" trend in home décor and made my own
"dipped" heart embellishment. I have used a
wood veneer heart and painted the bottom half with
Smooch Accent Ink. The pink felt doilie and Kaiser stamp
completed the fun, whimsical design!
 




 
 
Here is a close up........
 
 
 
 
 
I used another "dipped" heart for this layout, tied some twine to
the top of the card and finished it
off with a small peg


 
I sprinkled a few drops of Dylusion ink
spray to balance the white space, here's a close up......




 
I hope you enjoyed looking t my trio of cards!
 
Thank you all so  much for dropping by!

A quick share....

 
Hello friends!
I have been a little slack in sharing my work here on my blog - I
tend to get caught up in the ease of sharing
via my phone in my other galleries!
 
I thought I might pop in and share this quick
layout I put together.
 
I used a D-lish Scraps raw wood veneer - seriously, they
are the best and the price - so affordable!!
I have added touches of my new favourite manufacturer
Pinkfresh Studio  They are so my style!!!
 
 
 
 



I am super excited because I have a weekend off
and I will do nothing but scrap tonight - yippeeee!!!
 
Did you know that the monthly Cybercrop is on right
now at the D-lish store Facebook community
The Scrap Suite  Simply visit the page and ask to join
for a month of fun!!!
 
Thanks for dropping by and see you in The Suite!

STG June Challenge

 
Hello there!
Check out this amazing mood board

 
How gorgeous are all those elements?
I took the beautiful design of the cups and saucers
as inspiration and came up with something a little different....


 
These colours are just stunning!! I did find it
a tad challenging at first, but once I decided to just have
fun with it, it wasn't so bad!
The zentangles are patterned paper - an older
collection by Bo Bunny. I used some Kazsass markers to
colour them in.
 
 
 
 
If you're into the colouring in craze - it's just
so much fun isn't it??

 
 
The prize this month is a super, amazing voucher
If you are a lover of handmade then you must
check Charm's store out - very exciting to have her as a sponsor!

 
I hope to see you play along! We always
love to see your amazing creations!
 
Thanks for dropping by!
