D-lish Scraps Cotton Candy goodness

Each month D-lish Scraps releases a limited number of  Just Add Paper kits which co-ordinate with the monthly Inspiration Board challenge. These kits have grown in popularity to the point where they now sell out in less than 24 hours and Amanda is going to have to start making more of each limited edition kit each month.

Although the Cotton Candy kit I used to create the following layouts is now out of stock, I'd love to share with you just what good value ($10 per kit) and how much fun, the kits are to work with. From this kit I created two layouts of me as a not quite one and another just a few months older; one layout quite soft and pretty and the other bold and bright, but both from the one kit.

Almost one

As the kit name suggests, all you need to do is add paper. In this instance I got out two pieces of cardstock, two pieces of co-ordinating double-sided paper (from the MME Now & Then Dorothy collection), new Heidi Swapp banners, Jillibean Soup alphas, and then some background mixed media bits and pieces.

For my second layout I followed the sketch (fairly loosely) from the current Inspiration Board challenge for, funnily enough LOL, inspiration!


I had some patterned paper off-cuts which I'd normally put in a ziplock bag for 'later use' (yeah right LOL) but had been challenged by a girlfriend to make a Christmas card by the end of the weekend. Although I'm no longer interested in making cards I thought "why not use these off-cuts, raid my D-lish Scraps stash, and have a few cards put away for future use?". So whilst the cards aren't Christmas themed, my girlfriend let me off the hook because I made three (three!) other cards LOL!!

Additional D-lish Scraps products used when making the cards include .. black/white Cotton Twine, mint Cherry Blossoms, hot pink and light pink Rambling Roses, white Sweetheart Blooms, white and light pink Sweet Petites, black BlingFlair Buttons from the Just My Type pack, black Small Roses, and mini 3.5" round Paper Doilies.

When all was said and done, after finishing these projects I had one 2.5 x 3.25" piece of patterned paper left, and some pink flower sequins, the aqua chevron bag, washi tape and a wood veneer cupcake left over from the kit. I've got to say I'm pretty happy with what I achieved with so few products.

Make sure you've liked D-lish Scraps on Facebook and selected 'get notifications' so you'll receive sneak peeks of future kits as they come up. Then you can decide if you want to be one of the first scrappers to purchase the kit before the all sell out!!

Happy scrapping!
