Athanasia' s Inspiration PLUS A Video Tutorial


Hello 2Crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a layout I created about nature.
I found this super cute photo on Pinterest and went straight to my desk to scrap it!
I also made a step by step video with all the process and I hope you'll enjoy it :)

For this page I used a lot of 2Crafty chipboard pieces, not only leaves
and flowers, but also some leftovers which I always love to use on my projects!

In order to alter the chipboard pieces I used LSG embossing powders. They
 are so easy to use and give to the chippies this amazing and awesome look!
  I really like how they turned out! 

Here are some close ups of the Wildflower pieces and the Flourishes from the Frame,
 which were left over from another project.

More close ups of the Fiddlestick piece, which is sitting under the photo.

Below you can see the Fast Fwd Arrow

2Crafty Chipboard pieces Used:

'Birthday Tag'

My second project is a birthday tag I made for my 6 years old daughter's friend.
It's like a card, but as it can't open like a regular card, I call it a tag :)
I love using photos on every kind of project I create even if it's a tag or a card.
To create this small and cute project, I used this pretty girlish photo,
 a small piece of paper, some flowers, gold thread, gesso, sprays
 and these beautiful chipboard pieces!  

I really love the fact that you can build such beautiful clusters and layers with such 
a small amount of chipboard pieces. It's the best way to make a small piece of art
 with such few materials! 

All of my chipboard pieces on this tag have also all been heat embossed.
It creates such a nice thick & lush look to the chippies.
