March Inspiration By Debbie

Hi everyone!
 Debbie here with you today with my March layouts. This post is lengthy as I have
 three layouts to share along with a photo tutorial..


My first layout I made for a special friend of mine which features lots of 2Crafty Chipboard!
 I based it off the current challenge over at More Than Words March Challenge.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Foliage Cluster
Frame Celia's
Mini Word Set 2
Leafy Shrub Set 2

I love the mixture of embossing powders I used on the Foliage Cluster and Frame Celia's,
 a mixture of black and bright blue.

Tucked beneath the flowers I used a piece from the Leafy Shrub Set 2,
embossed with a couple shades of green.

I kept the title simple, applying some pink ink. It is part of the Mini Word Set 2.


My second layout features a sweet vintage picture of a little girl I found on Pinterest. I'm guest designing at 'Picture This Challenges' this month and created the layout for their March challenge.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Climbing Rose Bush
Mini Word Set 2
Lacey Border

I embossed the Climbing Rose Bush chipboard with a mushroom powder and cut it into
 a few pieces and placed it on both side of the picture.

I used a piece from the Lacey Border Set which I cut into four pieces and embossed  with a
 mixture of Mushroom and Pink embossing powders and placed the pieces around the picture.

Here you can see more of the Climbing Rose Bush chipboard.

My third layout includes a picture tutorial.
 I ran into some technical difficulties at video taping.


I found this photo on Pinterest and was felt like I was taken to a magical place.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Alison's
Glenda's Swirl
Fine Word Set 2

A few closeups:

I have not quite yet mastered the art of video tutorials, so I have a
step by step photo process for you:....

Step 1:  Spray background paper with blue and brown mists.
 Add paint splatters and some random stamping.

Step 2:  Emboss chipboard pieces.

Step 3:  Adhere decorative transparency and some of the
chipboard pieces.

Step 4:  Add picture, flowers and feather.

Step 5:  Add additional chipboard pieces and more flowers.

Step 6:  Add additional feather, butterflies and chipboard title
along with some microbeads and glass glitter.

I hope I have inspired you today.
Thanks for stopping by!
