"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.

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..

June Inspiration with Hina - Altered Notebook Cover

Altered Notebook Cover

Hello there..

I am back on 2Crafty with my latest inspiration for June. 
A Notebook Cover altered in Mixed Media, incorporating some beautiful chipboard pieces from 2Crafty.

I have created a lot of texture on the base and then created a collage with various elements.
I used three different pieces of chipboard, layering them with other elements.

I chose to use Baroque design so to make everything come together with the background
where I used a Motifs design stencil.
So for the Baroque Corners and Wendy's border, I applied a layer of gesso, followed
 by distressing and some stamping.
 I also embossed certain parts of Wendy's border with white Embossing Powder.
I used one of the Baroque corners on the back cover of the notebook.

For "My Happy Place" which appears as the focal element here, I embossed it with
 Golden Embossing Powder to make it stand out, and put it on the top most layer.

Wendy's Border
Baroque Corners

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired!

June Inspiration By Elisa Ablett
"This Boy

Hi 2Crafty lovers,

Elisa here from the design team with my the first of my June projects for you,
a grungy mixed media boy layout featuring loads of 2Crafty Chipboard along
with stencils from A.B.Studio, distress ink, Aall and Create stamps and old book paper.

"This Boy"

Here are some close ups of the finer details !!

I wanted to distress and 'grunge up' my square frame, so using a
distress tool and black distress ink pad, I lightly inked the frame. 
I also added yellow details using a yellow pico embellisher.

I love using compasses on boy pages and I wanted to add little pops of yellow and 
teal to the page, so I inked both the compass chipboard to match the background.

Loads of stamping and stencilling in the background.

For the title to my page I inked the chipboard title 'this boy' with a metallic silver ink.

Then once dry I inked the bottom of my title in a blue distress ink.

More grungy stencilling and stamping, and some scribbly writing with a black pico embellisher.
