Live it up
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans!

I hope the new year is treating you well so far!
 Today, I'd like to share a layout showcasing my favorite moment of 2020: our camping trip
 where we visited a bunch of amazing places around Quebec.
 This was during a "break" in the pandemic where the number cases was much lower and going
 out and around felt amazing after several months of staying at home.

"Live it up"

On the "Ariel's Spray", I applied metallic pewter paint and then dabbed some raspberry embossing ink.

On the "Lattice Leaves", I applied burgundy embossing powder and then dabbed a bit of silver embossing ink on top.

For the title, "Live it up", I applied two coats of black embossing powder. Then, I sprayed a few drops of metallic paint.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

Ariel's Spray [db0002]
Lattice Leaves [m00589]
Live it up [w00222]

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 soon with more ideas to share with you. 
Until then, happy crafting!

Beyond Words
By Marie Claude Rodier

Hi everyone,

Already time for me to show you my newest layout using my all time favourite chipboards. Often times, I use a lot of product to embellish my chipboards. This time, I went for simplicity with pure white on all of them. Light tone not only creates a good contrast on any project, but it also makes the chippies pop out a lot more.

Beyond words

All chipboards were embossed with Lindy’s purely white embossing powder. In order get a crisp and opaque color, I embossed every chippie twice.

Beyond Words was placed next to my picture, on top of my main clustering.

Frankies’s Frames were tucked on either sides of the clustering. And Corner Ivy was cut into several pieces  and placed here and there to create movement. 

2Crafty product used...
Corner Ivy
Beyond Words
Frankie’s frames

Until next time, be happy and be creative!

'We are Fearless'
with Lisa Amiet


Hello all!
It's Lisa on the blog today to share some 2Crafty goodness with you.

Today I have a fun 'boys' layout that I have created, 
featuring my husband and son.

2Crafty Products used:

For this layout I have used one of the 'Number Panels',
that I have inked in blue to match my papers, and tucked into my layers.

I have also used some of the 'Film Strips Tiny',
also inked in blue, 
also layered with some of the 'Fencing Wire Panels',
that I have cut up and left raw, in among my layers.

Lastly I have used one of the 'Mini Family Icons'
also inked blue and layered on a tag. 

I hope that you like what I have created, 
 and that it inspires you to create today.

Until next time!

Some More Inspiration
From Di Garling
"Simple Moments"

Hi there everyone, and welcome to the 2Crafty blog. Di Garling here with you today
with some more  2Crafty inspiration & another of my NEW RELEASE kits.

2Crafty Chipboard Used....

Decorative Rod Set #1
Ornate Screen
ATC Word Stick..Set #1

ALL the chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of white gesso as a basecoat, although with the
  "Word Sticks" be very careful not to put too much on or you won't be able to read the words.

I cut one of the "Decorative Rod Set" pieces in two & proceeded to randomly add some
pink acrylic paint, drying it off & then followed by rubbing on some Finnibair Wax Paste
to get this lovely mottled effect.

Now in the photo above on the right side, you can see the "Ornate Screen". Isn't this the most
beautiful piece of chipboard ever !!!! I totally adore this piece. 💘 I have treated it exactly the 
same as I did for the "Decorative Rods", super easy but very effective.

Well thats all from me today.

REMEMBER I am releasing this layout as a kit.
For all the details, click on this link to my blog.

Until next time.....

"Capture the MOMENT"
Layout by Marie Sabatier

Hello everyone, 

I present my second inspiration to you. 
I chose to make a page with this school photo of my little girl.

"Capture the MOMENT"

The 2Craftychipboards used:

- Capture the MOMENT Title
- Clock Face Frames
- Numbers Panels
- Luggage
- 2019
- 2020
- Flowering Clusters

I applied a coat of white gesso on the "Capture the Moment, 
Clock Face Frames and Flowering Clusters" chipboards.

I then embellished with Lindy's Gang embossing powder in the color
 "Oom Pah Pah Pink" for the title and "Stardust Candy Rose" for the others.

For "Numbers Panels, Bagages and Years" I applied a layer of black gesso, 
then "Raven Black" acrylic paint and touches of waxes in several shades 
to achieve this vintage effect.

This "Luggage" chipboard is fantastic. 

I added these essential date chipboards for school photos.

I added paper embellishments and flowers but the chipboards 
are still very prominent. I love!

And that's it, I hope you liked it and gave you some inspiration.

Life is wonderful
By Charmane Sharp

 My first post for 2021,
is a lovely holiday moment
enjoying the sun, sand and sea.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Moroccan Panel
Life is Wonderful- Title
Mini Flourish Bits

Moroccan Panel is a lovely texture piece easy to cut up and
add a tropical lift to your layout. After a coat of Gesso I applied Prima 
Metallic Watercolour.

Mini Flourish Bits are versatile when cut into individual pieces
and placed amongst decorative details. Aqua Watercolours were
painted on the pieces to match my composition.

Prima Metallic Watercolours give the title a blended shoreline feel.
Such a perfect title for the way I was feeling in this moment.

A couple of close up photos to show the layers in my configuration. I love to
blend chipboard pieces with resin ones as a contrast. I hope you enjoy a
little vacation this year. I am currently enjoying a road trip to Exmouth,
Shark Bay and Kalbarri. Need this break after 2020.

Thanks for stopping by,

Until next time,
Charmane x

Embrace Today ~ by Lisa-Marie

 Hi everyone!

Welcome to 2021!  May this one be way, way better than the last one!

Today I teamed up with CSI: Color Stories Inspiration Case File 342 to create this piece.

These are the chippies I have used - direct links below.

I have given my Decorative Rod Set a coat of minty metallic green mist and topped it off with some Glossy accents (I cut it in half so that I could adhere it on either side of my photo cluster).

My title has been chalked with red and then stamped with black, using a script stamp.
  I finished it off with Glossy Accents.

I misted my Funky Leaf Swirls with light metallic blue and coated with Glossy Accents.

Until next time!
