Karine's November Share....

My dear crafty friends,

Is it really the middle of November yet?
 I can't believe time flies that fast!
 I almost didn't make it this month for my monthly share, but I managed 
to steel a few hours to create two layouts that I share with you today. The first one is called

 «You Shine»


I started out with the Circle Lace Panel. I cut it in a few pieces
 and I embossed those with black embossing powder.


Next, I selected the beautiful Leafy Shrub Set 2.


I used all three pieces on my layout, amongst my flower clusters.


I covered them partially with dark teal embossing powder, leaving the
raw chipboard showing in a few places. I love the distress look it gives.


Finally, my title piece is the You Shine title. I embossed  with aqua embossing powder.


2Crafty products used:

Circle Lace Panel

Leafy Shrub Set 2

You Shine-title


My second layout features a family picture and is called...

 «Memories»


This time, I selected the Frame Elouise's as my focal point.


I embossed it with gold embossing powder.


I then used one of the Ada's Flourishes. I cut it in half, placing the biggest
 part below my picture. I embossed it with bronze embossing powder.


The other half, I placed to the left to my picture.


I also embossed the Tahnya's 6" Border with this bronze embossing powder.


I placed it on the left side of my layout, in my flowers cluster.


Finally, I used one of the Line Words - Goodtimes Borders, embossed in bronze powder.

2Crafty products used:

- Frame Elouise's

- Ada’s Flourishes

- Tahnya’s 6’’ Border

- Line Words - Goodtimes Borders

I really hope you like my layouts.
See you in December!

My November DT Reveal - Part Two
"Friends"
Layout By Di Garlling




Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part two of my
November DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard.

 2Crafty Chipboard Products Used...
Friends - title loopy font
Funky Heart Swirls
Frame Olivia
Ana's Vine

I have used both the 2 Crafty "Ana"s Vine" as well as some "Funky Heart Swirls"
on my layout as you can see in the above photo. I treated them both in the same way....

                              #1. I gave them all a basecoat of white paint.
                              #2.  Next up I wiped them over with some Distress Ink in "Pumice Stone".
                              #3.  I coloured up the buds & hearts with some Distress Ink in "Peeled Paint".
                              #4.  Lastly I covered all the green parts with some "Crackle Accents".



For the title  "Friends" I simply painted it in a pale blue acrylic paint & while still
wet I dipped it into a fine glitter, but unfortunately it is hard to see that in a photo!!


How nice does the "Crackle Accents" make those green buds & hearts look?
It really makes them pop.

All these gorgeous papers & flowers are from 49andMarket.


Lastly for the "Frame - Olivia" I bascoated it in white paint first followed
by a wipe over of Distress Ink - Pumice Stone" & then I used a wipe to lightly
wipe some off to lighten it.


Well thats all from me today. I hope you liked my layout.

Until next time.

My November DT Reveal - Part One
"Our Sweet Girl"
By Di Garling


Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout featuring my
grandaughter Mia to share with you. I just adore this pic of her.

2Crafty Products Used...
Our Sweet Girl - title
Tiny Leaf Stems
Fine Leafy Bush
Chicken Wire - small
Chicken Wire - medium


I thought this 2Crafty title, "Our Sweet Girl" was just perfect for my layout.
Here I simply basecoated it in white paint followed by a coat of bronze acrylic paint.
Too easy.


Next up I set to work altering these "Tiny Leaf Stems" to add in with my flowers.
I started off with a base coat of white paint, then I blobbed on some texture paste
 just using my finger so that it would be rough, then I heated it with a heat gun to
 make it bubble up & then lastly I sprayed it with some Lindy's Gang sprays.


I treated the "Fine Leafy Bush" in the same way & then I cut
it into pieces & poked it in here & there around the flowers.

I added some cut up pieces of both the small & medium
"Chicken Wire" In & around the layout too for added texture.


All these gorgeous kraft coloured flowers are from my good friends over at

Well thats all from me today, I will see you back here tomorrow
with more great 2Crafty chipboard inspiration.

Until then....
