October inspiration by Marianne Johansson


Hello peeps!

Today I have to fun layouts to show you.
Totally different regarding colors, but still, kinda "my style"

The first one is from a crop I went to last year (in fact, it's the same crop we are going to now this weekend).
My friend Vibeke and myself drove for several hours, stayed at a hotel and had lots of fun.

Lots going on here in the layout as you see.
I loved the Messy Square Frames and used several of them as layers on top and under the photo.

I used ink pad randomly on the chippies, here you see "getaway", on of the words from the Mini Travel World set 2

Details of the frame beneath the photo and paperlayers

I love all kind of chicken wires and so happy to use these from 2Crafty.
Usually I cut them in pieces as you see here

To match the chicken wire chippie I used a chicken wire stamp as well

My background is made with watercolor, stencils and stamps

2Crafty Chipboards used:
Chicken wire panel
Messy Square Frames
Mini travel world set 2
ATC words 1
Adornment set 1

And so for the next layout, totally different regarding colors as I said:

"Time of my life"

Another photo from the "surprise" trip I gave to my youngest daughter going to a concert with her favorite band 5 Seconds of Summer (5SOS)

On this layout I used the chippies natural, only with a little bit of color by an ink pad

I cut the Sammi's swirl in several pieces

I guess you can say that if you have some chippies, you don't need much other embellishments. And that I have showed you on this layout

I used the Corner Arhces as a "frame" on my photo

And this title is so perfect for my layout and the history behind it. 
It really was Sarah's time of her life.
She even said to me after the concert (she is 14 years old): "mom, now I can die happy ;) " 

Didn't spill any part of the chippies, so here is a leftover piece from one of the Corner Arches

2Crafty Chipboards used:

Time of my life

Sammi's swirl


Hope you liked my layouts and got some inspiratons how to use chipboards in different ways
