"Today & Everyday"
by Elena Martynova

Hello dear friends!
This page is about me and my husband. Next summer we are going to St. Petersburg.
This is a very beautiful city in the North of Russia, with stunning palaces, fountains
and monuments & so many different museums too!!
 I was in the Hermitage as a child and I remember its beautiful gates all my life ! I added the
 Iron Gates into the background, like were in the background in my pictures!

"Today & Everyday"

The gate is covered with three layers of Lindy's silver 
embossing powder which  gave the chipbord more volume.

I love the titles so much. 
They are filled with meaning and are made in a beautiful font.

 To make the layout look more harmonious, I added a very delicate chipboard
 Tahnya's 6" Border.

The gates are raised above the page to make them look more voluminous.

Birds from the Birds Set flutter around.

In this photo you can find a lion's head with a ring in its mouth. In St. Petersburg 
there are lions everywhere. (of course not living, and in the form of statues :)))

 I also raised an inscription and put it under the plaster heart.

Exquisite flowers by Freetany Flowers add tenderness and lightness!

In this layout I have used next chippies.


Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

'Life is Short Take the Journey' layout by Hetty Hall

Good morning 2Crafty fans and welcome to the blog!

Today I created this layout with a bit of a beach theme but I think it would work well for any photo.

 I played with a bit of colour and used some sprays for the background. Flowers and paper are of course from 49 and Market.

Products Used:
- Fishing Net Bits
- Fern Leaf Set
- Life is Short Word Sentiment

I love the 'Fishing Net Bits', I think they make the perfect background for this photo. I added some gold embossing powder and a little bit of silver wax to highlight.

The sentiment is gorgeous, I love the fonts used and that is why I kept it simple by just adding some white embossing powder, I think it stands out nicely amongst all the colour.

I also separated the word 'Journey' from the rest of the title so I was able to place it on the layout in two different spots, I think it balanced it out perfectly.

Last but not least I added the 'Fern Leaves', again keeping them simple and white to match the title and tucked them amongst my flowers. Finished it all off with some art stones and 3D gel.

That is it again from me for now. Thank you so much for popping in.

Until next time.....

Christmas Tags with Lisa Amiet

Hello 2Crafty fans!

It's Lisa here today to share some Christmas inspiration with you all!
Yes, I know it's only November but the time flies! 
 I have created a set of 3 tags.

Not your traditional Christmas colours are they? :)

For this tag I have used some of the 'Mini Checkerboard Bits'
that I have embossed in white and used tucked into my layers.

I have also used the stunning 'Christmas Deer Head'
that I have first painted with a pink metallic paint.
I have then used stickles on the hanging ornaments from the antlers. 

I have then layered a 'Merry Christmas Fine Card Pack'
that has been finished in a white metallic paint.

 For my next tag I have used the 'T'is the Season Star',
that I have finished in white metallic paint.

I have also used some of the 'Grid Bits'
that I have embossed in white and tucked into my layers. 

2Crafty Products Used: 

For my final tag I have used one of the 'Berry Wreath'
that I have painted in pink metallic paint. 
I have then used stickles on all of the berries.

I have then layered a 'Merry Christmas Fine Card Pack' onto the wreath.
I have also used some of the 'Mini Hexagon Clumps'
embossed in white and tucked into my layers.

I hope that you like what I have created and that it inspires you today!

#SNAPCHAT layout by Marie Sabatier

My third and last one for this month of November.

My inspiration is this picture of my son's arm with these tattoos and Steampunk chipboards including some of the new "Steampunk Arrow Set 1" collection.

For "Steampunk Arrow" chipboards I applied two coats of Lindy's Gang, Oakleaf Olive and Bronze Byzantine embossing powder

For the "Steampunk Strips" chipboards I applied a layer of Queen Sheba's Silver embossing powder and then skated with a rusty effect color without stressing

For the title, the clocks, the circle I applied black gesso and I also skated with a rusty effect color

A lot of work on this page but I had a great time working on these beautiful chipboards :

- Hastag word Set 2
- Clockfaces
- Steampunk Arrow Set 1
-Steamunk Strips
- Circle Revolution Frames
- Cherckerboard Panel

Here I finished for this month I hope you enjoyed it and if so do not hesitate
