Fun in the Sun | D-lish Scraps Design Team Layout

Hi there!

Over the next few days I'll be sharing some layouts that I created for D-lish Scraps this month. I'm kicking it off with my take on the March Inspiration Board challenge! Here's my layout...

"Fun in the Sun"

And here's a reminder of what the Inspiration Board looks like...

Isn't it just so bright and fun and summery?!? I was inspired by the fresh colour palette and I also used the optional sketch as the basis for my layout, although I used one large photo instead of four smaller ones.

Most of the embellishments on my layout are from this month's Just Add Paper kit! I must admit that I am more than a little bit addicted to the Just Add Paper kits! Amanda does such a great job of putting together a gorgeous kit of yummy embellishments, and when you combine it with the Inspiration Board, it makes putting a layout together super easy!

To start my layout off, I chose some patterned papers that worked well with the colour palette (I chose ones from the Cocoa Vanilla Hello Sunshine collection). After I had my patterned papers in place, I added a strip of the washi tape from the kit down the left hand side of my layout. I then created some layers behind my photo using the punchinella and the yellow stripe bitty bag (which I cut in half and tucked under the top and bottom of the layers to make it look like a long strip). Then I was ready to embellish!

Let's take a look at some closeups so that you can see all of those lovely embellishments...

I love this little cluster of embellishments on the top right hand corner of my photo! I used a couple of pieces from the journal pack, an orange rose and a flair button, all from the kit. I also attached an arrow paperclip to the side of my photo.

I absolutely adore the Corbett Creations wood veneer pieces that come in the Just Add Paper kits! They never have a chance of making it into my stash because I always use them straight away! Have you seen the new range of wood veneer words that have been added to the store? I love them! They are a super easy way of adding a title to your layout, and they look fab too! Below my title I added a felt polka dot bow. You can also see here how I used the cloud picks on my layout!

In the bottom left hand corner I created another little cluster using the journal spot that came in the kit, another orange rose, and a couple of embellishments from Cocoa Vanilla.

I finished my layout off by adding a scattering of D-lish dots.

I do hope that you'll play along with our Inspiration Board challenge this month! You've got just over a week to get your entries linked up!

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back tomorrow to share a layout that I created for one of the current Cybercrop challenges in the Scrap Suite. Until then, happy scrapping!
