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!

Blissfully serene....

 That's exactly my thoughts when we spend a day
out on the boat enjoying the beautiful beaches and
sandy playgrounds here in Queensland!
 
Of course, there are plenty of beautiful embellishments in the
D-lish Scraps store to scrap all those water/beach
themed layouts!
As soon as I saw these beautiful Green Tara burlap flowers
I knew I had to add it to one of my layouts!
I found a photo I took at Slipping Sands 
and smothered it in D-lish goodness!
 
 
 
 
Here are the burlap flowers.....aren't they gorgeous?
I made a small cluster here using them as well as some
gorgeous pearl cabochons
I've layered my embellishments on top of a
large, kraft shipping tag to create more depth.
 
 
 
 
Here's another close up of the layered embellishments.
I used some gorgeous Memory Maze chipboard mini words
for my floating title. The range is huge! There are plenty of
sentiments and font styles to suit any layout!
I added a little torn tulle in sapphire to add more texture.
I also thought it fit in nicely with the sea theme of the layout much
like the twine knotted and layered under the
script chipboard text.


 
Thank you so much for dropping in
and taking a peek at my layout!

D-lish Cybercrop is on!!

 
Did you know that D-lish Scraps
holds a monthly cybercrop in our little scrap
community The Scrap Suite
The best thing about these crops is that they are a month
long so you have plenty of time to get as many projects
done as you want!
 
I played along with the first challenge by Ros, which is
to scrap a photo that is not a square or rectangle......
 
 
I've used a combination of Kaisercraft and Basic Grey papers
as well as a splash of Dylusions ink....
The embellishments are from the D-lish store
which is always being loaded with yummy new products!
 
I've added some gold accents in here - isn't it still all the rage??
 


 
I found the easiest way to attach the wire was to
staple it, but if you don't like that look, a heavy
duty adhesive will keep it down ;-)



 
Make sure you pop in to The Suite and join
us for a month of fun!
 
Thanks for dropping by!

Pink Fresh Studio fun!


Good Morning D-lish fans!
I'm here to share with you a layout full
of layers of fun!
I got to play with these gorgeous Pink Fresh Studio
puffy stickers - who remembers collecting them as a kid??
 
 



I used the beautiful Studio Puffs - trust me, this
little sheet of stickers goes a long way!
 
The designs are so cute and quirky!
as it co-ordinates perfectly with this collection.



 
A few splashes of mist here and there and lots of paper layers
finish off this clean style layout!
Aren't those little clouds the cutest??


 
I had a few stickers left over to play with - you can
see what I did with them soon!
 
Thanks so much for dropping by!
