October Inspiration Projects With Jaya Raghuvanshi

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Jaya here today and I have two projects to share with you all. 
My first project is this mixed media canvas. 

"Live Everyday With Intention"

October is the Breast Cancer awareness month and my canvas is dedicated
to this cause. I chose this theme as I believe how living everyday with intention
can increase our levels of happiness and fulfillment.

Some close ups-

I applied some black gesso on the flower doily chipboard and added some glitter on it. 
I cut the title chippie in two, & covered it with white gesso and used it on my canvas.

2Crafty Chipboards used-
Live everyday with intention
Flower doilies

My second creation is this soft layout with pastel hues.
2Crafty chipboard is sponsoring the CSI Case file 215 for the month and
me along with some of my Co-DT members guest designed there. 
Here is my interpretation of this casefile.

"A Wish Come True"

A few close ups-

 I covered all my chippie pieces in white gesso and then colored them using
chalk paints and watercolors to give some wonderful looks. 
I love the ombre look on the leafy shrub set chippies.

October Inspiration By Lisa Griffith


Hi 2Crafty fans, Lisa here with my projects for this month. First up is a really
shabby pink layout I created about my grandparents using lots of papers, inks,
and of course pretty chipboards!

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Ingrid's Frame'
'Fine Words Set 1'

These dandelions are my new favourite piece, I can't get enough of them!

I was going for a really shabby look so I just painted all my 
chipboards with white acrylic paint and then tucked them into my layout.

My second layout is with a photograph of my little guy.

'Dream Big'

I love the title chippies so much, they always add a lot of drama to a layout. Here I used 
the piece 'Dream Big' and I painted it with black acrylic paint so it would really stand out.

2 Crafty Chipboards used:

'Anthea's Butterflies'
'Sharon's Butterflies'
'Dream Big'
'Birds Set'

I painted the 'Anthea's Butterflies' with white paint and then lightly stamped
them with black ink.

I hope I have inspired you a little,
See you next month!

October Layouts By Sandra Bernard


Hi there!  Sandra here with you today sharing three layouts.
Two for 2crafty and one more for Kraft+ challenge as guest DT
as 2Crafty are sponsoring over there this month.

Let's start with the first one, where I play with some leaves...

2Crafty Chipboards used:
Tiny leaf stems 
leafy silhouettes
summer leaf stems
frame Ingrid's
Perfection as title 

I treated the three different lots of foliage all different.
For the first one, I used some green foil to add here and there.

For the second one, I used some green metallic paint to give a great color,
and I left the third lot of foliage natural to create a contrast between them all.

I painted the frame with bronze and green metallic paint. 
The title has been keep natural too.


My second layout was inspired by the beginning of fall. 
The background had been coloured with watercolors.

2Crafty Chipboards used:
Frienship mini word pack
Addy's butterflies
Ivy clusters
Corner Alison's

Most of my chipboard on this layout I have left natural
It just worked well with my colours.

I did color the ivy clusters with watercolor to create a focal point.

I put the two Alison's Corners in such a way to create a frame.

for Kraft+challenge as guest DT for 2crafty chipboard

The Kraft+ challenge was about the past. I had to add some old scrapbooking things
 such as velum, brads, rub ons etc.... I just had so much fun with this 
challenge and I even keep my style.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Fine Word set 1
Fine Leafy Bush
Frame Louisa's
Dianne's Doily Set

All my chipboards were left natural. 
I think the feeling of my layout is also a kind of natural.

I placed the Dianne's Doily under Frame Louisa's just to add more textures and dimensions.

I cut the Fine Leafy Bush to get two pieces. 

I just added a few drops of mediums to add some textures too.

I hope I have given you some ideas to play with our beautiful  2Crafty chipboards...Have you?

Until next time.

October Inspiration From Tiffany Solorio
PLUS Two Video Tutorials

Hello everyone. Tiffany Solorio here with you today.
I have two projects to share with you.
Both projects have video tutorials.

Here is the first project.

"Just Me"
For my first project I created a layout. I have never done a layout
 with just my photo before so I thought it might be time.
I used some beautiful Pion Design papers for my layout. I embossed all the chipboard
 with white embossing powder. I wanted to keep it simple.  I used the ATC Tiny Hearts 
around the page to create some interest. I have a Tahnya's Border and the
 Frame Heart String tucked behind the photo with the Just me - title
 quote as the main chipboard piece.


Here is a few detailed pictures. 

2 Crafty Chipboard products used. ..

Just me 
ATC tiny hearts and stars
Frame heart string 

"Dream"- Mixed Media Canvas
My second project I created a mixed media canvas.

I embossed some of the chipboard in white and some in black.  I also
 used some iced enamels relique powder. It is used the same as regular 
embossing powder. I used Prima Marketing paper and a IOD wood plaque. 
I tore some papers and added a lot of spatters. 


Here is a couple of detailed pictures.
