'#lovewhatyoudo' by Jasmine Shea

Last year Hubby and I were lucky enough to explore Queenstown in NZ.  
I couldn't believe we had not been there before.  We live so close.
We now have a trip planned next year to travel with the kids from the 
North Island to the South Island.

We climbed up and then down this mountain for 6 hours. This photo captures the beauty and size of the mountain....and we were only halfway up at this stage.
If you have never been to NZ, you have to put it on your bucket list.

Having my D-lish goodies sorted by colour makes it so easy to put a page together like this one using blue, white and silver.

I have used a few of the Little Birdie Flowers. I just love the shades of colour on them. 
I also added some Sequins and some Resin flowers
And finished off with one of the Wordfetti pieces the stunning silver Resin Glitter Heart from one of the Just Add Paper Kits.

Don't forget our September Cybercrop is now on. 
I hope you see your fabulous creations in The ScrapSuite this month.

"somebunny..." by Anthea

Well.  This is it.  My last blog post for this term of  D-Lish.  :(
I have been here for a year now and can honestly say that I have loved every minute of it.  I have had the absolute privilege of working alongside some of the most amazingly talented scrapbookers I know, many of whom have become friends.  I have the bestest boss lady who supports me in pretty much whatever I put my crazy mind to AND I get the opportunity to work with some of the prettiest and versatile products out there.  I also have made many friends, some of whom I am lucky enough to have met in person from The Scrap Suite.  What can I say?  It's a scrapbooker's paradise!
For my last LO I thought I would share this very simple, but I still think pretty LO that I did of my daughter from Easter way back when.  I have always loved this photo of her knocking on the door of my Mum and Dad's place Easter morning, so much so that I actually think this is my second time scrapping it. (I don't often scrap photos more than once, but my style has changed so much over the years so it is likely to be very different.) 

I have had that gorgeous creative cut bunny in my stash for a while now and never quite got the nerve up to use it - I guess I was frightened I wouldn't do it justice.  In the end I just found the photo that I thought would work with it and went for it. 

The first thing I did, after picking the creative cut and photo was pick my papers.  I think a bit of colour in this LO was important as there really isn't that much in the photo. Once I had figured out what papers I wanted, I picked which one I thought would look best behind the bunny. The one I chose I think works because there are so many colours in it.  I did for a second think about backing each opening (on the bunny) separately but the thought of it hurt my head and I dropped the idea quicker than a hot potato.  Scrapping is meant to be fun....not strenuous.  ;)

I then placed my flowers on the corner of the photo.  I didn't want to use too many, because the feature really is the bunny, but I could not go past the Little Birdie Flower as my main flower in my cluster.  The other flowers I used are also from D-lish; one is a carnation and the other one is a cabbage rose.  I also stuck in some little die cuts for leaves to make the cluster look a little more realistic.

I then added my title.  I love the puffy alpha stickers that you can get at D-Lish.  The colours a beautiful and now you can get them in lower case too.  They are quite soft and pliable, so I simply sewed through them a few times above the photo to make them pop.
I then sewed around the whole LO a couple of times to frame it and soften the edges a bit.
I added the gorgeous enamel glitter dots right at the end to bring it all together. 

I really like how this LO turned out and hope I have inspired you to use your creative cuts as a major feature of your page too.  I think this LO goes to show you don't have to do much to make them really pop. 

Before I go, I would like to say thank you to each and everyone of you for your support over the year.  I hope that I have inspired you as much as you have all inspired me.  Until next time - take care and happy scrapping.

'Love' by Elisa Ablett

Hi D-lish lovers, 

Elisa here from the design team with my latest layout for D-lish Scraps, a super cute mixed media layout featuring loads of D-lish goodies.

 The idea for this layout started with the most gorgeous watercolour flowers from the store - Little-Birdie---Watercolour-Heather---Blue and distress stains. I wanted a lovely soft and feminine background that ties in with the colours in my photo and I wanted to use watercolours to achieve that soft look. I grabbed my trusty distress stains in Broken China and Abandoned Coral which matched my photo perfectly and they happened to match the flowers as well, winning!!

I used the stains to hand colour my tag and white leaves, they are from a past Just Add Paper kit.

I also used the stains in my background by applying water to the page directly and then adding splats of the stains. Once dry I used a D-lish Scraps 5 x 5 Stencil along with a white gel pen to trace flowers in white over the top of my background in a wreath design.

Here are some close ups of the embellishment clusters !

In the above cluster I used Little-Birdie-Flowers in Heather, flowers, glitter heart, leaves, resin flowers, pearls, journal spots and tag from recent Just-Add-Paper-Kits. Plus a lovely pink  suede tassel and a lovely butterfly flair button.

In the top cluster you can see the messy circle creative cut framepink mini bowpink suede tasselpink/white twine and an awesome die cut tag from a  past Just-Add-Paper-Kits.

On the right side of the layout you can see the White leaves which i hand coloured with the distress stains, also you can see the tiny pink pearls  and journal pieces which came with a sweet past Just Add paper kit which matched perfectly, i placed around the circle to create a frame!

Well that's it from me today, make sure you head to the store to check out all the products and bargains!

"Sky's the limit", by Amanda H

Hello again D-lish Scraps fans,
Here is my second page share for September.
I started this page with a Paper doily and the Pie chart diecut from the Creative Cuts section in store. Along with some buttons and chipboard, I stuck this to the white background before gesso'ing white over the lot. Then I added colour, painting and highlighting the different elements.
 My favourite thing on this page is the flowers - they are new ones from the Little Birdie Flower Collection. The colours are perfect, and I love these ones with their sweet gold stamen centres.
I also added some wood veneer stars, which I embossed gold, and some Resin Glitter Dots.

I repeated more of the same elements in the clusters on either side of the photos.
I love the blue and teal colours together, and even better with a touch of gold!
Thanks for looking,

'Birthday Memories' by Tamara Buckler

Hi All,

I'm back again today to share another layout with the D'lish peeps. This one was a bit of a stash buster, I got in and pulled out a heap of old 6x6 paper pads to make all those yummy layers, and then went to town pulling out D'lish goodies to embellish my page.

My main cluster of course includes a sequin bow, because they nearly all do! And then I've added a beautiful tutu bloom, a D-lish flair, a D-lish creative cut, and a gorgeous candy pink carnation. Ooh, and I also tucked in a resin flower from the Primrose Lane kit, its so pretty!

I then added a little mini cluster to the top right of my paper stack for a little balance and extra interest. I love how the date spot from the Indigo Glitz Journal Pack softens up the hard straight edges around it. And those little wood veneer bows, I seriously cant get enough of those!

To finish off the page I wanted to add this gorgeous wood veneer word from Corbett Creations to create my title. I love the texture and definition these bring to a page. I finished this off with a Journal-It date ticket - which I stamped with the incorrect date! GAH! I'll go back and fix that later (famous last words!)

Thanks for stopping by today to check out my layout. I look forward to sharing another layout with you at the end of the month!

Big Loves,

"Sweet As Candy" by Julianne McKenna

Hello fellow crafters! It's Julianne joining you today. 
So, has anyone here got a flower addiction? Come on, I know I'm not the only one. 
Fortunately, the Little Birdie flowers come colour and size co-ordinated, so it's makes it easy to create flower laden layouts like the one I am sharing with you today. 

Water colour backgrounds are all the rage at the moment, and I'm loving it because flowers work so well with water colours, (and white flowers can even be coloured with water colour paints). So, one pink water colour background, teamed with lots of pink Little Birdie flowers, makes me one very happy crafter. Did I mention the Little Birdie flowers also come in mint and white? Simply divine!!! 

I used pale pink coloured doilies, and a few stamps, to create my background. To add a splash of bright colour to the layout, I painted wood veneer hearts with hot ink ink, and then coated them with Dimensional Magic for a little shine and dimension. 

I used a stencil from the July Primrose Lane Just Add Paper Kit to create the "X" and "O"s down the side of the page. I then added jewelled embellishments to create a new "O". 

I have also added a puffy heart embellishment from a past Just Add Paper Kit, and a wood veneer bow, topped with a Little Birdie flower, to work as a focal point.

It's easy to create one of a kind title with Creative Cuts die cuts. I simply coloured the word with hot pink ink, and coated it with pink glitter. I raised the word with 3D foam tape to create a little dimension and depth. 

Now, I don't know about you, but I think it's time for me to go shopping for more flowers to add to my collection. Thanks for stopping by and joining me - I hope you enjoyed my project! 

Don't forget to LIKE us on Facebook to stay up-to-date with all the latest D-Lish happenings, and to join us in The Scrap Suite (on Facebook) to share all your creations, and to join us for a few monthly challenges.

Cheers and happy crafting,

Love Always - by Nicolee Cable

'Love Always'
Welcome to my first September layout!
It's of my beautiful mum and some of her family - loving always!

Here are some close-ups of the lovely D-lish embellishments that I used
to pull this one together.

This bitty bow is so cute and I love the deep navy colour
which set off the cute rose-gold glitter paper so well.

For this cluster, I've used some of the left over doilie,
some other things from my stash).

I just had to show you a close-up of this cute
resin butterfly! You must get some!

For this cluster, I've gone along the whole border with the blue banner
washi tape (after cutting up one doilie and draping it the whole width 
of the page), flowers, sequins, stamens and resin flowers.

Here's another angle of the cute resin flowers and faceted enamel dots.
I use them all the time, cause they're just like the icing on the cake! 
The cherry on top! I can't have a layout without them.

Well, I hope you liked it and were inspired to grab 
some wonderful embellishments from the store for yourself.

Have a wonderful week, I'm off on a 
lovely little break to visit my family.
 See you when I return.

Nicolee xx
