Life Documented - Always Remember
By Jennifer Snyder



Jennifer Snyder here today!  
I recently received my box of 2Crafty new releases and I always smile.  Opening the
 box and seeing the designs in person is an incredible moment.  So I sat down and
 got to working - pairing the chipboard with the Flying Unicorn kit. 

As crafters, I am betting we all look for versatility when we buy products.
 The little 2Crafty  "Mini Hexagon Clumps" are perfect versatile pieces.  
They are great fillers in clusters, perfect for adding texture to a page, and double as
 both feminine and masculine.  What could be more versatile?  

So on to my first piece. This is a layout I made featuring my Mom.  I took this photo
 in June of her on a family vacation to the ocean in New Hampshire.  It captures her
 fun happy spirit.  My Mom is absolutely the kindest person I know so I wanted to
 surround her in bold beauty. 

The 2Crafty chippies I used are
"Life Documented"-title and "Mini Hexagon Clumps" 
-merely painted bold dark black.

Here are some more close ups.  The papers used are BoBunny and are from
 the September Flying Unicorn kit.  


You can see the chipboard title,"Life Documented" bold and beautifully displayed.


The "mini hexagon clumps" work nicely as cluster fillers here and add pops of texture. 




Layout Two

The second piece is a special page made once again from the Flying Unicorn Sept Kit,
 but the subject matter takes a bit of a turn as a tribute piece.  This is a page made for a friend.
  She sent me the photo of the darling boys, both very special and near to her heart.

In this piece, I used 2Crafty "Frame - Viney Circles", which resembles leaves in a wreath.
  I also used the "Lattice Hearts"  and separated them , though using them together is
 spectacular.  Finally the "Mini Word Set 2" added the perfect sentiment to this page.

Here are more close ups.  The chipboard was painted gold and a little  gold 
and pink embossing powder added to them. 



 Here is a shot to show the beautiful golden glimmer of the lattice heart.


Until next time.
