March Shares by Debbi Tehrani

Hi, 2Crafty Fans! 
I'm here to share some layouts I made with the awesome 2Crafty chipboard.
It was a great honor to have 2Crafty sponsor my scrapbooking challenge 
CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration in February, 
and I had lots of fun incorporating 2Crafty pieces into my layouts.
 
 
"Alphabet Adventure"
 
Here's the Case File I used:
 

I decided to document our alphabet adventure that my husband and I embark on every Sunday after church. You can read the details about this adventure on my blog, if you're interested. 

For one of the clues, I chose to use the alphabet as a design element. I removed the chipboard letters from a 2Crafty sheet of Dainty Alphabet letters and painted it with gesso. I liked the rough look it had so I left it with just gesso. I strategically cut it so that the "abc" would be part of my page and backed the negatives from those letters with papers that coordinated with my cluster. I tucked a 2Crafty geotag inside the "b" and added tiny letter stickers near the "a" to form  part of my title--Alphabet.


The "Adventure" from the Travel Word Disc Set was just perfect for my title. I used black embossing powder to give it a slick modern look. This is such a great, versatile chipboard set, as it comes with 7 different words that are perfect not only for travel-themed projects but other themes as well. 
 

I love using the Polaroid Frames to make a particular photo or other element stand out. This Polaroid Assortment Frames set is such a great set that includes 8 frames of various sizes. I coated  mine with white embossing powder. The bottom has space to add other elements, such as the 2Crafty Arrow and phrase sticker that points the way to the story on the back of my page. A little jute tied around the frame dressed it up even further. You will definitely want to get that Assorted Arrow set--you get 30 arrows of all different shapes!

"Looking Forward"


Here's the Case File I used for this page:
 

My page is about the things I'm looking forward to when I lose all my weight. 
I'm down 32 pounds and have a long way to go, so I have lots to look forward to! 
The idea for this journaling came from a list prompt. I made my own patterned paper
 at the to by typing my list and repeating it again and again.

I found several pieces of 2Crafty chipboard that were perfect for my page.  
The sketch on the Case File had a circle, and I knew I wanted to use one of my favorite 2Crafty pieces--6" Circle Revolution Frames. This set comes with three pieces--I used the smallest circle on this page, which is 3 inches. (I scrap 8 x 8, which is why the pieces may look a little larger.) 
I coated all my chipboard on this layout with embossing powder. I love the way the black adds some drama to the pastel palette and makes the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard stand out.


I used the Alpha Set 1 for my title and substituted a Mini Camera for the "o"--a perfect accent 
to emphasize the message of my page.


Finally, a piece from the beautiful Leafy Shrub Set 2 added a lovely flourish to my flower cluster.

"A Little Bit Scruffy"


Here's the Case File I used for this page:


This is my sweet, stinky, scruffy, 18-year-old kitty Little Brent. The arrows from the Assorted Arrows Set were just the thing to point to my sweet kitty's face. I inked them to match the palette and cut them apart so it looked like the arrows were going through the circular frame.


I used the middle-size Circle Revolution Frame, embossed in black, to draw attention to my boy and layered a word from the Friendship Mini Word Pack, which I embossed in white.


The circles scattered on my page are from the Circles sheet, which contains an assortment of circles that are so versatile. I also used a half of a raw Polaroid Frame, left from another layout where I had used just half of the frame, to hold my journaling.
