January Layouts by Lisa Amiet

Hello everybody.
I am so excited to be sharing my FIRST 2Crafty layouts with you!

When I found out that I had been selected to work with 2Crafty in 2017,
 I was so excited I squealed the house down!
I am so honoured to be able to work with such an amazing company, 
with such gorgeous products and to be part of an awesome Design Team.
 Let's get on with the sharing :)

"Sun, Sea, Summer"
For my first layout, it had to be a beach photo. 
As we are in the middle of our summer here and we live in Queensland
here in Australia, a trip to the beach is a MUST to cool down and have some fun :)

I have used one of the "Dreamcatchers" that I have embossed in white. 
I have then embossed the edges of the feathers in seafoam green, and added some mini pearls.

Scattered pieces of brown inked "Mesh Bits" have been used throughout my layout,
and I have layered an arrow from the "Assorted Arrows", which I have left raw.

From the "Assorted Mini Camera Set" I have used the cutest little
 "Geotag", finished in a rough coat of orange to match my papers.

Some more of the "Mesh Bits"

For my title I have used a piece that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!
It's the "Line Words Summer Border"
These are actually joined at the end, which I loved, but I wanted them to 
spread across the bottom of my page, so I cut them each to the length I needed.

I have embossed each line word in a separate colour to match my layout,
but to also kind of represent each word.
Orange for the sun, seafoam green for the sea, and fresh clean white for summer,
because I associate those together,
 maybe because I wear a lot of white in the heat of summer.

 2Crafty Products Used:
Assorted Mini Camera Set
Assorted Arrows
Mesh Bits
Line Words Summer Border



For my second layout, I have used some fun steampunk pieces!
A bit of a grungy boy layout I have even made a process video for this one!

I've used lots of cool 2Crafty chippie pieces!
I have cut the "Brick Panel" into a few pieces to be able
 to use them across my layout.


Some close ups :)

I love love LOVE this "Corner Steampunk 2"!
I think it has to be one of my favourite pieces!
I added some micro beads to it before embossing for the extra texture.

Some "Steampunk Gears Small" and "Steampunk Gears Medium"
scattered throughout the page added that machinery feel.

Some more "Brick Panel"

I have also used the "Love - Loopy Font Title"
that I have also gold embossed to finish the layout.

I hope you have enjoyed my first 2Crafty share,
and I hope this inspires you with some of your own projects in 2017!

I can't wait to see what the rest of the Design Team
 has in store for us this year!
