Hi there 2 Crafty fans. Di Garling here with you on the blog today with
some inspiration, & naturally I have used some awesome pieces of
2Crafty Chipboard.
2Crafty Chipboard Used....
Window Shutter Set #2
Mini Word Set #1
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi Pack

Well it is no secret that this gorgeous little chippie "Window Shutter Set" is one of
 my most favourite pieces of chipboard !! All I did here was to wipe it over with some
 brown ink & when dry, I brushed a little white gesso on to give it a shabby chic appearance.

Doesn't get much easier than that !!

For both the "Mini Word" & the little hearts from the "Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack"
I first applied a coat of white gesso to base coat them & then I followed that up
with a coat of paint. Again super easy !!

Things don't have to be technical or difficult to look nice. 😄👌

Well thats all from me today. I hope I have helped to inspire you in some way.

I am going to release this layout as another KIT.

I am currently taking PRE ORDERS for a mid August release.
You can private message me on facebook or see
all the details on my blog.

Until next time....

'Seas the Day"
By Charmane Sharp

Welcome to the blog today,

I have created a layout with awesome 2Crafty chipboard
to match the 49 and Market Beached Collection,
I purchased from All About Scrapbooks.

I love the Palm Trees, perfect for that tropical feel.
I also made some unique embellishments which
I explain how to make below.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Circle Stack
Palm Trees
Small Palm Tree set
Geo Circle Panel

I wanted to create my own unique embellishments using chipboard.
Taking a Panel of the Geo Circles I cut it to fit some of the Circle
Stacks. Then heat embossed with White and while hot sprinkled on
some powder Blue randomly. Heat embossed the Circles in crisp 
White and glued them together with Heavy Body Gel. Finished off
by adhering onto a piece of printed paper.

Adding a Tropical feel was so easy with the Palm Trees. Colouring
them with Card Deco inks allowed me to blend colours to get
definition on the leaves and trunk. Rolling a moulding tool around
the edges of both pieces added definition.

I hope you have loved my unique embellishments and have a go
at creating some for yourself. Enjoy the beach vibes and take a
little time out to create today.

Until next time...

'Our Heritage'
with Lisa Amiet


Hello, 2Crafty Fans!
It's Lisa here today to share some vintage inspiration with you.

I have created another layout for my album,
this page features my Grandparents and family.
I am loving being able to scrapbook these fantastic photos.

2Crafty Products used:

I have left my chipboard raw for this album page, 
as I think it goes with the warm colours of the papers. 
I have used one of the 'Vintage Keys',
layered with the title of this layout.

I have also used one of the 'Mini Decorative Frames',
layered with the photo of the garden party, 
along with a piece of the 'Geo Triangular Border' under my photo. 

Here I have used one of the keyholes from the 'Keyholes & Locks' set.
For the gorgeous photo of my Grandparents, 
I have used another piece of the 'Geo Triangular Border',
cut to size, alongside the photo. 

This photo was long before my Grandparents moved to Australia for the first time,
a move they would complete more than once. 

I hoped that you have enjoyed seeing a little bit of my heritage, 
as I work my way through this album.

Until next time!

Layout and Video
by Marie Sabatier

Good morning all,

I am always happy to meet you again and to present my new inspiration to you.

A simple layout with a lot of attention to chipboard!

I also made a step by step video that you can watch right after.



2Crafty Chipboard used:

- 2C Fine Word Set 3
- 11" Flourish Round Frame
- Frame Celia's Flourish

Here are come close-ups, but feel free to watch the video for more details.

I started by applying a layer of black gesso on the chipboards.

Depending on the color of the gesso, the effect of the colors applied subsequently 
not at all the same result, here I was trying to achieve a dark effect.

I embellished each chipboard in the same way.

I used two colors of Finnabair metallic wax "Bronze Age" and "White Gold" 
to finish I just lightened with a shade "Sweet Rose".

I love the contrast effect on my layout, the dark chipboards, and the light embellishments. 

All the magic of scrapbooking!

I hope this layout has inspired you, don't forget to check out the video.

Thank you for your visit and loyalty to 2 Crafty.

Good scrap to you.

Follow your Bliss with Emma Zappone

Emma with you all today on the blog.
Today I share a magical 9"x12" Layout with you all.

This layout features some stunning chipboard!
Clock Face discs
Florence Swirl set
10" Decorative Doily 1

I was a little nervous using such a large piece of chipboard with the doily, and wanted to do it justice. I I knew I really wanted to antique it up. I applied a crackle paste and allowed it to dry naturally. Once that was dry I then applied a combination of Oxide inks and ink sprays to add the colour tints.

Love how the colour seeped in through the cracks. Once the colour was dry, I lightly rubbed a copper wax over the surface just to grab some of the texture.

I then prepped the other 2 pieces, the clock face and swirl, with black Gesso.
Once dry, I then applied a couple of waxes to illuminate them yet compliment the large doily.

Once these pieces were all ready, I then layered them into my layers and visual story.

I loved taking my time creating this layout and love the feel of the end result.

I hope this layout gives you a little inspiration.

See you soon, Em xx

"A Home is not a home without a Dog"
By Charmane Sharp

 Hello 2Crafty chipboard friends,

Charmane here on the Blog today
to show you my layout, I created with a photo of myself enjoying
time with both my girls. This 2Crafty title is absolutely perfect as my
Dogs hold a special place in my Heart.

They bring so much joy to my life, make me smile, laugh and
bring the family together.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Title- A Home is not a home without a Dog
Corner Hannah's Flourish
Tiny Leaf Stems
Lace heart Frames

I love this title so much and to match its placement on my layout, I Heat 
embossed with WOW's Karin's Dream over a coat of Gesso. This powder is 
Clear mixed with Gold it allows the White Gesso to show through. Underneath 
I used the inside Heart from the Lace Heart Frame and I glued some patterned 
paper onto it and sanded the edges. then wrapped some string around it.

Tiny Leaf Stems look so exquisite with sponged on Iris Potion and
Soft satin Finnabair paints. By cutting them into two pieces and 
layering them it adds glorious details to my layering. I also cut a 
piece from the Flourish and sponged on Soft Satin followed by
some Gesso for an aged finish, placing it under the Stems.

I extended the floral element on top of the clock with some more pieces
from the Tiny Leaf Stems and the two lengthy pieces cut from Hannah's 
Flourish placed on either side. They work together beautifully.

I love all the fussy cut elements, die cuts and Gold Prills that add lots
of prettiness to my layout. Hope you have been inspired to mix chipboard 
pieces together for layering loveliness.

Until next time,

Charmane x

ATC Set ~ by Priya Mishra

Hello Friends,
Today I'm sharing a set of 3 ATCs that I wanted to make since long. 
I used some lovely chipboards to accessorise my project and make them look gorgeous.

2 Crafty Chipboard products used:

I prepared the base using stencil and texture paste. Then I applied the Black gesso all over.
Once everything is dry I arranged my chipboards.

After gluing chipboards on the ATC bases, I used Finnabair Metallic waxes to colour 
the entire piece. I used Turquoise, Copper, Gold and Silver shades.

Once the colouring is done, I sprinkled diluted white gesso. I love the 
completed pieces. Hope you like them too.
Do follow me on INSTAGRAM to check more of my creations.
Take care and Happy Crafting
