Hi Everyone!
 I'm here today to share a few layouts I've made using the fabulous 2Crafty products. 
As soon as I saw the Circular Panel, I knew those round openings would be perfect for
housing accents.  The Circular Panel comes like this:

If you're like me, you have jars and jars of buttons gathering dust, so that's what I decided
 I'd use with this chipboard element. One of the wonderful things about 2Crafty Chipboard
 is that you can cut it and use parts of it, so that a single piece can go a long way. I scrap 8 x 8,
 so this feature makes it easy to tailor the chipboard to my smaller-sized pages.

I painted the chipboard with white acrylic paint. I love the look of white on white. 

I adore the font of the Happy Loopy Font word--so fun and fanciful!

I used a couple of arrows from the Assorted Arrows Set to hold the beginning of my title.
This is an awesome set to have,  you get 30 chipboard arrows on one sheet!

I used some 2Crafty Chipboard on some other projects I recently made.
 Here's a page I made
 for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, using this Case File.

and this Creative Scrappers sketch:

I used an arrow from the Assorted Arrows Set. I used white embossing powder to
 give it a textured look.

On the quadrant below, I used pieces from Gears and Giant Gears.  I painted the red and blue
gears to match my palette and used clear embossing powder. The gold one was coated
 with American Crafts Zing gold embossing powder, which gave it a perfect glittery finish
 to match the letters I used on my layout.

The "Hey You" speech bubble is from the Word Bubble set, which comes with six fun pieces.
 I used yellow embossing powder on this piece.

I chose to use the chipboard raw on the following page, which I also made for CSI:
I tucked a piece from the Giant Gears collection behind my photo. The thickness of 2Crafty chipboard is just perfect for layering. It gives great dimension without adding too much bulk.
I used a text stamp on one of the trendy chevrons from the Chevron Bits
(another great set to get--it has 46 pieces on one sheet!) for added interest.

Here's a look at one more CSI page I created using 2Crafty chipboard. I just love the film strip piece tht I used below. It's from the Film Strips-Medium set.  Each set comes with two film strips, which you can actually double if you cut it in half and tuck it between layers, like I did.
I coated the chipboard with copper colored embossing powder to
give it a great shiny, textured look.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading about my pages.
 I'll be back in May to share some more work with this awesome chipboard!
