Adventures Are The Best ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

 Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing with you my layout created in conjunction with Case File 334
over at CSI: Color Stories Inspiration:

These are the lovely chippies I used:

Here are some additional pictures and some details on how I altered my pieces:

I gave my title a swipe with some orange-yellow Distress Oxide and then coated with Glossy Accents.

I misted my 2 pieces of Foliage Sets with a gorgeous gold and then also coated these with
some Glossy Accents.

I used the negative frame that my 2 little Funky Frames came in, as a big black frame on
my piece to highlight and draw the eye.
  I misted this with some charcoal-black mist and topped with Glossy Accents.

Until next time!

A Mixed Media Layout
By Di Garling

Hi there 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another little mixed media layout to share with you & naturally
I have used lots of beautiful pieces of our favourite
2Crafty Chipboard.

 2Crafty Products Used....
Fine Word Set #1 - title
Decorative Rod Set #1
Frame Edith
Frame - Shirley
Tiny Henri's Frame
Tahnya's 5" Border

 For all the gorgeous chippie frames & the "Tahnya's Border", I altered them by firstly painting
 in a green acrylic paint, followed by a coat of Finnibair Crackle Paste & then finished
off with some Finnibair Gold Wax Paste.

I cut some of them in half & used them in amongst all my layers.

For the LOVE word, which is from the "Fine Word Set #1" I simply
heat embossed it in gold.

I was so pleased how all the chippie frames turned out with the Crackle Paste.
The Wax Paste over the top really shows up all the lovely cracks.

Lastly I finished off by again heat embossing in gold, a piece from the 
"Decorative Rod Set #1"
 I then cut it in half and poked a piece in either side of the layout.

Well thats all I have for you today, I do hope you like it
& perhaps get some inspiration from it too.

Until next time.

 Halloween night is coming soon, so I made a panel for you and prepared a step-by-step video lesson.

In my panel I used the following 2Crafty chipboardS:

Flourish Clock Face

 Alphabet Dainty 


Brick Panel

I have prepared many photos of my work for you.

Hello 2Crafty fans!

We're nearing the end of October and it can only mean one thing: it's going to be my birthday
this week! Yay!!
With the lockdown still in effect here there won't be any big celebrations,
but I'm still going to try making the best of it!
My husband has a nice dinner planned for me and the kids and we're going to share it with
family over Facetime. 

I will be starting the last year of my thirties, so I'll really make sure to enjoy every day no matter the hardships it brings. This is the inspiration for the layout I'm revealing today.


For the "Bunch of Roses", I applied some ivory enamel powder and rubbed a green wax on top of it. 

On the "Foliage Set 8", I used a clear glaze with sparkles inside.

For the "6" Floral Heart Frame", I used my finger to apply a green-gold shimmering wax
 and I heated it would melt and clearly show the two colors.

For the title "Today", part of "Fine Word Set 3", I applied aged silver embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

 Bunch of roses [CAR024]
Foliage Set 8 [M00867]
6" Floral Heart Frame [FR0132]
Fine word set #3 [M00799]

That's all for me today!
I hope you enjoyed this layout and that it gave you some inspiration for your own creations!
I'll be back in a few weeks with more ideas to share with you guys.
Until then, I'll raise a glass and cheer for all of you!

Hello beautiful
By Marie Claude Rodier


Hi everyone,

For my latest October post, I played with CSI case 334, details can be found below my layout.

Hello beautiful


I am not a big fan of Halloween, so instead of using traditional costume picture and theme, 
I used one of my favorite black and white photo of my eldest son. And I chose to go 
with a fall inspiration using most of the color scheme and a few clues. 

Hello beautiful was first painted with brown acrylic and embossed with Tim Holtz’s
 Rusty Hinge Ditress Embossing Blaze. It created such a beautiful shiny rusty look!!!

Hessian Patch Panels were painted with teal acrylic and tucked under the central paper cluster.

Frame Jenna was primed with white gesso and embossed with the same Tim Holtz embossing glaze.
The white background gives it a completely different look, It’s lighter and more vibrant. 

2Crafty Product used...
Frame Jenna
Hello beautiful
Hessian Patch Panels

Until next time, be happy and be creative!

Pretty in Pink

 Hello all!

It's Lisa here on the blog today,
 and I have some pretty little pink cards to share with you

2Crafty Chipboard used:


For my first card, I have used one of the
'Circle Lace Panels',
that I have left raw and cut into pieces.

I have also used one of the 'ATC Words 1',
also left raw and layered with a piece of the panel.

I have also used one of the 'Lattice Leaves',
in amongst my flowers.

For my second card, I have used some of the 
'Mini Hexagon Clumps', which I have left raw.

I have also used one of the 
'ATC Words 1',
 layered with one of the flower elements. 

To finish, I have again used one of the 'Lattice Leaves',
tucked in with my flowers.

I hope that you like these pink themed cards.
A little bit of brightness for somebody's day!
