"Making MEMORIES Everyday"
Layout by Marie Sabatier

Hello everyone,

I find you with my second inspiration of this month of May.
A layout that is both very flashy but also very soft.

I had never used these photos of Mia taken right after she was born before, 
I was waiting for the right colors so here she is.

"Making MEMORIES Everyday"

The chipboards used:

- "Making MEMORIES Everyday"
- Mini Doodles Frames Set
- Cartia's Swirl

After choosing the particleboard that seemed to me to be in harmony with my layout, 
I applied a coat of white gesso.

I chose a plain page background, I really liked this pink.
To embellish the background of my layout I added rub-ons.
I layered tags, paper and cardboard underneath my photo to create depth.

I applied Lindy's Gang "OOm Pah Pah Pink" color embossing powder to the "Mini Doodles Frame" chipboard. I then pasted it directly on my photo, it is super beautiful and fits my photo very well.

For the "Cartia's Swirl" chipboard I proceeded in the same way, to highlight it I glued it over the embellishments but it doesn't hide anything and it shows very well.

For the title, I also chose "Golden Angel Wings" color embossing powder, because always the title is important to share the feelings of a layout.

And that's it for today, I love using these beautiful chipboards.
I will see you soon.

Lady Butterfly Canvas by Amanda M

 Hellloooooo Everyone....

Today I have a created a 12x16 Landscape Canvas to create my Lady Butterfly.

I wanted to experiment with the 2Crafty Chipboards by cutting them up and altering 

them with different products to create a scene...

Products Used

Addy's Butterflys
11" Butterfly Clock Frame
Corine's Swirl
6" Clockface
So first off I have done some random stencilling with 3D gloss gel and 
sprinkled with some fine glitter, when dry I used a script stencil with the 
3D Gloss Gel to fill in the gaps, but no glitter.

I cut up some of the chipboards so I could alter them differently...
then used a Gold Inkpad on some and shades of blue embossing powder on others.

 Glue your composition together and you can see how fabulous the chipboards 
correspond and contrast with the scene..
Here are some closeups.

I hope this project has given some crafty inspiration

Hello Beautiful by Tania Ridgwell

Hello there! 

Tania with you today to share the second of my DT projects for May.
  I have created another layout.
  I just love the colours in this layout - especially the Gold!!!

2 Crafty Chipboard Used:

*Circle Heart Frames
*Flourish Adornment Set 4
*Hello Beautiful
*Delicate Lace Border

I just love this paper range and couldn't wait to use it and add lots of extra pops of gold to it.  Once I had created my background,  I chose my chipboard pieces and coloured them all with Inca Gold Paint.

I added my photo and tucked in the Circle Heart Frames between the paper layers and under my photo.  I then embellished around the photo using fussy cut elements and flowers.
I cut up the Delicate Lace Border and tucked pieces in between the paper layers and under the flowers.

I added a Flourish Adornment to each side of the flower embellishments at the bottom left of the photo.  To finish the page I added the Hello Beautiful Chipboard Title.

Thats' all from me today, I hope I have inspired you all a little with my Hello Beautiful Layout.  
Until next time thanks so much for stopping by.

                  chipboard, some flowers, some stamping, a little glitter & hey presto!!

Love - loopy font

To start with I base coated all my chipboard pieces with a coat of white gesso,
followed by a mixture of various paints & paint effects.

I just adore this "LOVE" word title.
This loopy font is quite funky, don’t you agree?

"Beauty within" layout by Moira Gilowey

Hello creative friends.
I am so happy to be sharing another of my layouts 
with you all today.

Chipboards which I use on this layout include

- Title sticks set 3 (mb024)
- Amelia frame (fr0133)
- Ornate screen (m00461)
- Vintage balloons (m00598)

I prepared the background of my layout by adding 
crackle mousse with a spatula as well as 
stenciling with the same mousse.
While the mousse was still wet, I added 
gold glitter to it and then allowed it to dry.

I painted my chipboard pieces with pink paint, 
drying it completely before lightly 
dusting the pieces with gold embossing powder 
and heat setting with a heat gun.

I hope that this layout inspires you to 
create one of your own.
Until next time!

Puppy Love
Step By Step Tutorial
By Charmane Sharp

I purchased the 3 Quarter Puppy Love paper pack. I wanted to share
how you can take a pack, add some 2Crafty Chipboard and bring your
layouts to life.

Creating with our pets is always special as they are an extension
of our family.

This is a Step by Step  Tutorial for you to follow.

2Crafty Chipboard used...

Title- Puppy Love
Frame Lucy's Flourish
Berry Vine set
Mini Decorative Frame set 1

1. After a coat of Gesso to all the chipboard pieces including those from the
 3 Quarter Design pack use a blending tool to apply Distress ink. Dry brush some 
Gesso to some of the pieces to highlight them, especially the title. Then coat the
two frames and title with clear embossing powder so they will stand out a
little more.

2. Tear a triangle piece from your paper as per photo and then cut another
piece of paper to fill the gap. Apply clear gesso to all pieces and adhere to a 
piece of card as shown.

3. Use a Mandala Stencil and apply Crackle Paste through it in two spots as 
per photo.


4. Glue half a doily to the side of your photo or a chipboard one.

5. Create a photo cluster using foam mounts between the layers and 
some embellishments from the pack.

6. Place the Frame Flourish under the top left corner of your photo.

7. Adhere two flowers to sit the Decorative Frame on and glue it to the 

8. Attach flowers to create clusters as I have in the photo above and to 
the Frames. 

9. Then glue the Title to the flower so it sits flat. Tuck the Berry Vine 
pieces under the flowers to flow out with gorgeous details.

10. Add a ribbon bow under the flower for softness and cut pieces of 
lace between flowers and under paper edges.

11. Finish with some Lindy's spray in Tea Pot Purple and use a paint brush,
to apply out from your photo cluster and flower clusters for final highlights.

I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and played along with me.

Until next time...

"Daddy's Gorgeous Girl" by Amy Voorthuis

Hello lovely 2Crafty fans,

Welcome on this wonderful blog, today I am showing you a layout with a bunch of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces. I am a massive fan of making beach & wintery layouts this time I chose a beach one, with a picture of Abbey and her bucket full of shells. The papers I used are by Maja Design and are two different collections. The picture was taken last year, Abbey loves the beach and she always says "it's sunny on the beach mommy" you have to put sunscreen on me. 

Daddy's Gorgeous Girl:

 2Crafty Chipboards used: 
Daddy's Girl
Breanna's Swirl
Frame Lucy's Flourish
Frame Celia's Flourish
Fine Word Set 2
Fishing Net Bits

Firstly I coated all the chipboard pieces with a thin layer of white gesso, then I used a couple of different acrylic & liquid paints to cover my chipboard pieces. On some of them I dabbed a darker brown paint randomly and others I used waxes on. 

On the background I did some mixed media such as stamps, inks and sprays and I finished of my layout by adding some art stones, sea shells, flairs {long time ago since I used them} and some word strips. I also used some metal pieces.

Much love and happy crafting...
