Finders Keepers.. for Scrappy Canary

Hello Everyone!!
Super excited to be back sharing some fresh layouts with the newly released Scrapbook kit
The kit features papers and embellishments from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy & Bella Blvd and is full of bright happy colours.

The photo Ive chosen to kick this month off with, is Leila doing what she does best.. Being cute, crazy and funny all at once! I captioned this photo on Instagram "Absolutely obsessed! The minute it's off me its on her!!" She truly is obsessed and keeps asking for her own... Um not yet lol

The 'Treasure' paper really suited the theme of the photo quite well. Lots of words and sentiments that  work perfect to describe this moment.

I absolutely LOVE ephemera packs! Such a great mix of cards and shapes that are easily layered up
The pack also includes banners and some acetate pieces

The Finders Keepers card is from the Quest cut apart page, perfect for Titles

Ive added ripped strips of the Dear Lizzy washi tape to a few places around the page, stapled some shapes on and added some older Canary dots. 

All finished off with a few splatters of Gold & Black Heidi Swapp Color shine

Thanks for stopping by, 
Happy Scrapping

Kind Heart.. for D-lish Scraps

Hello Everyone, 
Today is my last layout share for this month with D-lish Scraps

Originally, I had a different direction for this page, but I'm super happy with how it ended up.

First up I experimented with a Scrap FX stencil, and traced around and inside it with a black journalling pen. I backed it with some roughly torn tissue paper from a past kit, then stuck them down onto more white cardstock. I've layered up some Coloured Tullepunchinella and vellum underneath my photo, and popped up both that and the 'Kind Heart' card from a past kit with some foam sheet

I've stretched out some spiral stamens for some extra dimension on the page, plus they are pretty cool! Ive also added a super sparkly sequin bow to the top of the photo

Minimal embellishing around the page using Freckled fawn chipboard stickersD-lish enamel shapes 

Some moTEX tape for additional Title work, and some Rhinestones

Lastly a few tiny stapled to hold things in place, and random splatters of Black Heidi Color Shine

Thanks for stopping by the last few days,
I cannot wait to see what the new team members create and share this month!!

Happy Scrapping!

Sunkissed.. for D-lish Scraps

Hello Hello!! I hope you're all having a wonderful long weekend!
I'm back today with layout share number 2 for D-lish Scraps
I really love how this has turned out, although the photo doesn't show up the reason for documenting it, Leilas cute little face has just started showing little freckles!

I really love the colour palette that this layout took on. I get such a summery vibe just looking at it

I started the page by ripping some strips of tissue paper from the past kits bits, and placing them at the top and bottom of the layout. I've then grabbed a Scrap FX stencil and some distress inks and created a blended ombre effect beneath the photo area. 

Next, I layered up some white punchinella, scrap pieces of a vellum bag and the photo, and popped them up with some foam sheet. Then I moved onto the clusters of D-lish goodness

To the left of the photo Ive used a new layered feather (which are super cool and sparkly) a Flair button and journal its from Past kits, a new pastel petal flowerpetite rosebud resin and a chipboard heart from Freckled Fawn. All clustered together with a messy bunch of thread

My second cluster is made up of more pastel blooms, another messy bunch of thread, glitter heartmini coloured doilypetite rosebud resin and some new tags 

In the top cluster I've grouped together a piece of mini white doily with a pastel petal flowerglitter chipboard starpick & place bow and a sentiment sticker from my stash.

Lastly I went crazy with some splatters of Heidi Swapp color shine in Gold, Butter and Blush

Thanks for stopping by, see you all tomorrow with my last share for this month
Happy Scrapping!

Our Sweet Treasure.. for D-lish Scraps

Hello Everyone!!
So excited to share that I am staying on the D-lish Scraps team for another 6 months!
A big thank you to Amanda for allowing me to stay on! YAY

I cannot wait to share my first few layouts with you, so lets get right into it!

As usual Im kicking the month off with our Inspiration Board.. and isn't this a cracker!! 
Primary Colours are not something I've been drawn to before, but I really like how this has turned out
I took inspiration from the Pinwheels, the patterns on the flags and cups, and the paper circles in the bottom right photo 

I really love the end result. Although there were a few issues, and the page may have taken me a few nights to complete after losing track of the direction I wanted the page to take.. Those pinwheels.. I tell you! They nearly went in the too hard to scrap around basket.. Super easy to make, and boy do they look awesome, but heck, if you don't place them in the right way, the page just will not fall together right! LOL

 To make the pinwheels, Ive used 2 different tissue papers from the Past kits & Bits section of the store, plus a bitty bag. I layered them over white cardstock to give them strength, so that they would have some dimension and not lay flat. They're glued onto some paper straws, and embellished with a sequin heartflair button and a resin heart. Ive cut the little sentiment banners from the mini wordfetti piece within THIS past kit bit

Attached to one of the straws is a Dip-dye Printed tag, with Freckled Fawn glittery chipboard stars

To Create the title, Ive used some Chipboard words from Memory Maze
Ive layered vellum and some foam sheet under the photo, and embellished with white pastel petals

 For the top cluster, I've gathered some Mini coloured doilies that are Oh so CUTE! A polkadot bowJournal it arrow, Pinkfresh Studio wood arrow, resin cabochon starsa scalloped journal it from a Past kit, and a journal it tab that Ive cut down. Lastly Ive splattered some Heidi Swapp Color shine in Butter, Sweet Cherry & Ocean

Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to check back in tomorrow for my next layout share
Happy Scrapping!
