Shine - D-lish design share

Happy Monday everyone,
I'm here to share my last layout for this month.
This page is created and inspired with this months JAP kit. It is a completely black and white kit which allows you to interpret which ever way you wish, which is just awesome.
I decided to keep the colours very simple and let the kit speak for itself........

I also filtered my photo to match the colour tones. We had just had a farewell for some friends and the theme was 1920s, perfect for how I wanted to use this kit. So to add to the glam I added some silver embossing powder to the 'shine' title and a couple of the chipboard diamonds.
I also added micro beads to the large diamond and onto the main white flower, just to bling it up.
The kit has so much choice in it and it makes for fun scrapping. 
Tomorrow is a new month so why not check out the new JAP kit and be inspired by it.
You never know what you might create with it.
Hope you have enjoyed my shares this month, and will catch you in December.
Till then , scrap you later,
Em. Xx

Sweet Nutella

Just made the time limit with this months Scrap the Boys challenge. 
Here is the challenge......

So you had to scrap your boys with food!! So I just had to scrap this one of my boys....

I just love the looks on their faces and the joy that Nutella brings (myself included) 
I thought I would keep it very simple so I could make it quick.  
I used up a few goodies that have been sitting around for a little while. And drizzled paint around so it looked like melted choc. 

And then dotted along the arrows inspired by the sprinkles on the challenge pic. 
I had lots of fun with this and it was completed within an hour!! Love layouts that happen like that. 

I can't wait to see what next months challenge is. 
Thanks for checking this page out. 
Catch ya soon, Em. Xx

JBoys - D-lish design team

Hope you are having an awesome Sunday! 
Today I share with you my second Layout, and it's totally boyish. 
I love this photo of my son with all his mates. They had the best day together,
and this photo captures that. 

I used no paper with this page (except the background of course) and only a little mixed media. I used an impasto paste which dries clear so I could stamp over it, and ink it in places.

And i used plenty of D-lish goodies to make my page awesome.
I used 2 gorgeous flairs and some left over wood stars and 2 different washi tapes to add layers. 
I love the punchanella and cut it up roughly to add it all over the place and create interest. I also used a quote pebble and some wood quote bubbles. 
 Finished it all off with a tab of Awesome. 
I love how grungy and pre-teen this feels. 
Maybe you could try and create a layout without paper? Would love to see what you come up with. 
I'll catch ya tomorrow with my final share. 
Till then, Em. Xx

U wear flowers in your hair - D-lish design team

Well hello there,
I'm back today with my first share for this month.
And I couldn't help myself but share the layout I created with the JAP kit from last month! 
I loved it all, then the brakes hit.......
I have 2 amazing boys and this kit was a little on the pretty side, hmmmm what to do.
So I pinched a photo from my cousin of one of her gorgeous girls and created this.......

And it worked perfectly! I loved having fun with all the pretty things. I'm not scared to use pretty on my boy pages but this one just asked me to scrap a girl, lol!

The kit makes pages just come together so easily, but I added a few extra things to it, like, the coloured arrow, an extra washi which I made into feathers with the washi from the kit. 
I cut up the straw to make for a different element on the page with additional cluster.

And I decided to leave the pinwheel veneer as was, just added a little glitter to it and pierced a hole through it for the brad. These pinwheels are still available in the shop along with some other extra kit bits. 

I hope you enjoyed my first share for this month. 
I'll see you all tomorrow with another to hopefully inspire.
Scrap ya later, Em. Xx

Have you had the chance to checkout this months challenge over at Charms Creations?

It is Awesome!
And right up my ally, as those that know me know i have a collection of moustaches!! lol!!
Here is what i created.......

We had just had a farewell party and the theme was 1920's, and my youngest asked for a moustache to add to his costume.
Hey hey, i now had the perfect photo for the layout.

I was a little worried the photo might get lost with the papers, so charms chevron arrow and large heart worked great in drawing the eye to the photo.

I thought it had a bit more of a Carnie feel then a 1920s so went with that by adding the balloons.

There is still time to have a play with this great challenge.
So why not get out your 'stash' to play with this 'stache' challenge.
Till next time,
Em. xx

Wrong, in all the right ways

Have you seen the latest challenge over at Kraft+ this month?? 
It certainly has pushed me this month. Check it out.... 

So it's not really about the design of this layout but more about the artist that is PINK! 
Right, so that got the brain thinking.  Here is what I decided to create.... 

Inspired by her song 'raise your glass' from the album - Greatest Hits, So Far.
We sing this song heaps, as we are all a bit of an odd bunch!! Lol!!  
And I love to make fun of myself, especially when a camera is pointed at me! So I thought this photo tied in nicely with these lyrics in this song. 

It actually was quite fun to create this page without any additional paper, I only used embellishments and modelling paste mixed with micro beads. 
Thank you to the Kraft+ girls for really pushing our creative skills and the amazing inspiration. 
If you have a chance why not see what song of Pink's inspires you, there is plenty of month left. 
Thanks for checking out my layout. 
Till next time, Em. Xx
