Debbi Tehrani's October Shares

Hello, 2Crafty Fans! 
I'm here to share three layouts I made 
with the awesome 2Crafty products.
"Cute from Head to Toe"

That's Ezra, my best friend's granddaughter, 
and she is the definition of cute, so the 2Crafty title 
was just the thing for this layout.
2Crafty elements pictured below:
Light Bulbs
Frame Zig Zag Borders
I just love these light bulbs. They add an interesting, quirky 
touch to any layout. I used pewter embossing powder 
to give mine a metallic finish and then added vellum behind it.

2Crafty elements pictured below:

The three circles below are cut from a panel of 36 circles. 
This is such a versatile product. You can use it whole or use parts of it.
You can fill the circles or leave them empty to frame parts of your layout.
I coated mine with glue and sprinkled pink glitter.

How awesome is the loopy font? It can be whimsical or fancy, 
depending on your layout. I painted the title with white acrylic paint.
Then I stamped it with tiny dots in magenta 
and coated it with clear embossing powder to give the dots shine.

2Crafty elements pictured below:
Frame Zig Zag Borders
Polaroid Assortment
The zig zag border comes with four nested pieces. 
Like the circles, I coated them with glue and then 
sprinkled pink glitter to give them glitz.

Up at the top, I tucked a piece of a frame 
from the Polaroid Assortment into the layers and embossed it with 
the same pewter embossing powder I used on the lightbulb.

My sister-in-law was visiting from Iran a few weeks ago, 
and this is a picture my husband took of her in Baltimore.
 I made this page and framed it for her to take back home 
to remember her trip to Maryland.

Flourish Adornment Set 4
ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars
6" Clock Face Frames
Sightsee title

I wanted to somehow represent the water in the photo, 
and this lovely flourish reminded me of waves splashing.
I used navy embossing powder on it and added blue stars for added interest.

Sightsee title
Flourish Adornment Set 4
ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars
6" Clock Face Frames
I wanted to give my title a weathered look as if sprayed by the water. 
I embossed it with a rust color. Then I re-melted it and applied white embossing powder 
and embossed it again. I outlined it with a fine marker to give it added definition.

2Crafty elements pictured below:
Asst Arrows
6" Clock Face Frames
Polaroid Assortment
My husband isn't the best at photographic composition, 
and it looked like my sister-in-law had a pole coming out of her head! 
I disguised that with this cool 2Crafty arrow, 
which I embossed with the same blue embossing powder I used on the stars.

Asst Arrows
6" Clock Face Frames
Polaroid Assortment
The chipboard circle is from the Clock Face Frames. 
There are three nested clocks in that set, and in between them are circles, 
which I used here. I used white embossing powder and wrapped some jute around it.
The frame around my Parizad is from the Polaroid Assortment, and I used black
stamp ink and added some metal dots.


I created this layout for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration with the 
Case File Below. I was trying to answer the question: 
Are you right-brained or left-brained, and I decided I am both. 
I found the perfect pieces of 2Crafty chipboard to embellish this layout.

2Crafty elements pictured below:
Light Bulbs
How cool is this lighbulb? I inked it black 
and added a sun behind it to act as rays of light.

2Crafty elements pictured below:
I thought the gears would be a perfect embellishment to represent
the left side of my logical brain. I inked these black and added a 
colorful geometric brad to the center of one.

2Crafty elements pictured below:
Sharon's Butterflies

The butterfly was just the thing to represent my creative right brain.
I inked it with black stamp ink and added some bling.
I used part of the flourish as a butterfly trail. The Flourish2 is a great set
to get because you get 10 in a pack, and they're so useful for adding that little extra flair.

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my pages. 
I hope I gave you some ideas for using the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard.
