'Fun in the Sun' Boy Scrapbook Page
By Kripa

Its been two wet, cold weeks in Sydney.
That probably explains why I chose to make a layout using the sun.

The layout concept was inspired by 2crafty chipboard pieces:
Dancing Suns and the title chipboard Fun in the Sun.

"Fun In the Sun"

All the chipboard pieces were first coated with a layer of white gesso. Once dry, I applied Colourarte Silks using a palette knife on the Polaroid Frames & Dancing Sun. Let the paint dry for a minute then drag the paint again using the palette knife. This left some beautiful texture and just enough grunge. Dry brush a very tiny amount of white to tone down the shiny paint.

For the title piece, I wanted the word 'Sun' to stand out. So it was coloured using an orange ink pad. The word 'Fun' was painted on with Colourarte Silks & outlined with a white Posco pen.

* Title: Fun in the Sun

Thank you for stopping by today.
Happy creating,

June Inspiration with Elena Martynova

Hello my dear friends!!
Today my layout was made for the CSI case file #255 which 2Crafty chipboard
is sponsoring this month. Check out the CSI challenge HERE

 I like to make projects with several photos, you can play with their
location and make the composition more lively and dynamic!

I used some different colours of sprays Lindy's to colour the background paper and also
 added some texture with a stencil and texture paste and did a little stamping as well.

All the chippies were painted with gesso first and then I  used a spray.
 You can see the list of chippboard I used at the end of the post.
  I really love how they look on my composition.

"Happy" by Kareen Dion

Hello everyone!

Today it is a very special day.
It is my last publication as a DT member for 2Crafty.
It has been a very wonderful adventure and I'm really grateful for this amazing opportunity.

So for my very last publication, I made a simple layout, very feminine.
I used the Flower Doilies, Bunch of Roses and the title Happy from the
Friendship Mini Word Set.


I embossed the Flower Doilies with white embossing powder.

The Happy title from the Friendship Mini Word Set
is also embossed with white embossing powder.

The Bunch of Roses are also embossed with white embossing powder.

2Crafty Chipboards used : 
- Bunch of Roses
- Friendship Mini Word Set
- Flower Doilies

Thank you again for everything,
I will miss you!!

Capture the Moment with Lisa Amiet

Hello 2Crafty Fans!

It's Lisa here today to share some inspiration with you. 

My latest creation is featuring a photo of my children and I.
It started as a pic of my daughter and I, and we were photo bombed,
 quite perfectly, by my son! 
It was the perfect capture. 

Anybody that know me, know I LOVE a black background.... 
and it makes my chipboard stand out and shine!

So, for this layout I have used a number of the 'View Finder' chipboard pieces, 
these come in different sizes so are awesome for layering.

I have finished my 'View Finders' in white gesso, which gives a great matte finish.
I have then used watercolours to partially colour them in colours to co-ordinate with my papers.

I have layered some in my paper layers.

I have also used one of the 'Assorted Mini Camera Set' and one of
 the 'Assorted Arrows'.  I have embossed these in white.

Finally I have used 'Capture the Moment' as my title,
which I have also embossed in white. I love how it pops off the black background.

I hope you like what I have created. 
I'll be back very soon with some more inspiration.

June Inspiration "Beauty"
by Marie S.

This is my second inspiration for this month of June.

I created this project as a gift for the birth of a pretty little girl.

I chose these beautiful chipboards for an altered project full of sweetness.


I prepared my background by painting the outline and applied white gesso on the fabric.
With a stencil and a light structure mortar I applied a pattern on the background.
The colors were chosen according to the colors of the room "White, pink and gold"

The Beaded Chipboard Hanging Hearts and Madelines Flourish were 
heat embossed and have a gorgeous shiny finish.

On this one I just added a little gilding

For the title "beauty"
and Lattice Leaves, I applied the gold gilding with my fingers.

Then I had fun adding these beautiful flowers and finishing touches.

Looking forward to seeing you again next month

June Inspiration By Di Garling
"Sweet Girl"

Hi there 2Crafty fans. Today I have a layout that I created using some gorgeous
pieces of our favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.

I have handmade every single flower & leaf on this page, crazy isn't it !!

 2Crafty Chipboard Used ... 
"Sweet Girl" - Mini Words
Fine Heart Borders

How nice do all these chippie pieces look & all I have
done here is emboss them all with gold embossing powder.

The people at 2Crafty actually custom made these
 little "Mini Words" for me for a class I was doing.

I used these gorgeous chippie "Doillies" to frame my photos.
I actually cut one of them in half to make three out of two !!

Another layout done & I have to say I really love the chippie pieces 
embossed in gold. Super simple & they definitely make a statement!!

Well thats all I have for you today.
See you back here later in the month with more inspiration.

Until then..
