Just Adorable
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

I'm back with a new colorful layout to share with you guys, featuring myself and our big baby doggo, Neho. He's now 8 months old and is getting more lovable and mischievous every day!

"Just Adorable"

On the "Wire Stars", I used ivory embossing enamel. For the "Mini Branches" I applied black ink roughly then applied a gold wax on top of it with my fingers.

With the "Frame Madeline's Flourish", I used two coats of gold paint then traced the borders with black ink.

For the title, "Just Adorable", I applied a black sandy embossing powder, then I applied just a little bit of gold wax very roughly on top.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

Wire Stars [m00623]
Mini Branches [mb013]
Frame Madeline's Flourish [fr0076]
Just Adorable [w00195]

That's all for me today!
 I'll be back in a few weeks with another layout to share with you guys.
 I hope you enjoyed this one and that it gave you some inspiration for your own creations.
See you soon!

Beautiful Destinations ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

Hello artist friends!

I do hope that you are all well!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created in collaboration with CSI: Color Stories Inspiration.

These are the gorgeous chippie pieces I have used:

I inked the smaller of my clock faces with red, cut them in half and then adhered 
them on either side of my cluster.

I gave my title a mist of gorgeous minty green metallic mist and then coated it with glossy
 accents.   I used the same mist on my film strip.

I coloured my larger clock face with a darker khaki green, cut it in half and then I also adhered it on either side of my cluster, just as I did with the red one.

Until next time!

"You Are My Sunshine"
A Different Kind Of Layout
By Jenny J.

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all fine and are taking time for crafting.

Here is my first inspiration for August....

It's not usual for me to create with blues and greens.  
Hope you'll like it!

Here are the 2Crafty chippies I've used

*Mini tags
*Moroccan bits
*Flower doilies
*You are my sunshine
*Asst. mini camera set

I've treated my title, "You are my sunshine"
with two colors of embossing powders that matches my layout.

I've added a few layers on that.  
Texture on my background with a stencil and a texturing paste.

Then, the "Morrocan bits" is painted with black gesso and covered with wax.
Over that, a piece of "Flower doilies" simply heat embossed with a white powder.

You can see those same steps on the chippies in the little clustering on the right of the page.

Over the fabric arrow, there is a cute little tag 
from "Mini tags".
That piece is covered with black gesso.

I have add also a piece from "Asst. Mini camera set"
also painted in black.

Another close-up of that two toned title.

Hope it will give you some inspiration.
See you later this month with a video tutorial :)

Stay safe!

Mixed Media Banner
”Open Yourself”
by Elena Martynova

Hi, Elena Martynova here with a vintage styled project.

The amazing 2Crafty Chipboard products are beautifully
 composed with layers and vintage style.
I created lots of layers and using different elements
 and incorporated the chippies therein.

For all the chipboard pieces here, I have applied acrylic paints, 
embossing powders and sprays.


 I used these pieces of 2Crafty chipboard:

I love vintage photographs and this one I cut from papers 
& I decided to use in my project.

As a rule, I rarely do men's work, but we girls like flowers
 and bright colors more, but I had a great steampunk chipboard,
  Corner Steampunk  1 that I had long wanted to use somewhere.

For the vintage look and dull finish on the project I added some splashes with a sprays.


That's all for today.
We thank you so much for coming by and for supporting us here at 2Crafty.

I'll see you next time!

Cheers, Elena.

Layout by Marie Sabatier

Hello, I am delighted to be back with you and to present you a new page.

I really like to take close-up photos. 
Here it is a photo of my little girl dressed as a snow queen. 
Precious moments to share with my passion for scrapbooking.


2Crafty Chipboards Used :

- Precious Loopy Font
- Frame Nella's
- Decorative Rod Set 1

As always I applied a layer of white gesso on each chipboard
which I then covered with "Magic Moon Pearls" colored embossing powder.

I really like the delicacy and the royal effect of the "decorative rod" chipboards.

Here, before positioning it, I cut it to have an effect.

I just added a few "Crystal drop" beads of the same shade.

This frame "Nella's" is splendid.
I love its design even positioned at the back, it comes off very well.

To finish the title "precious" that I chose a little big to give it a lot of importance.

I will be back to present three more creations to you later this month. 
So, see you soon.
