September Inspiration & A Picture Tutorial
By Debbie Burns

Hi everyone!
  Debbie here with you today to share my September layouts featuring lots of 
2Crafty Chipboard.

"Enjoy Today"

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Ariel's Spray
Leafy Shrub Set 2
Butterfly Frames
Corine's Swirl
Enjoy Today
Sammi's Swirls

Along the left side of the photo I placed the Ariel's Spray embossed white along with
 Sammi's Swirl embossed peach, and a piece from Corine's Swirl embossed peach.
Tucked in the flowers I used a piece from Leafy Shrub Set 2.

To the right of the photo I used pieces from the Corine's Swirl embossed green. 

The Butterfly Frame was painted blue and then sprinkled with blue glitter.

Enjoy Today title was embossed peach.

"Be Your Self"

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Edgar's Swirls
Sharon's Butterflies
Be Yourself
Frankie's Frames
Element Set 1
Trudi's Vine

 I embossed the large piece from Frankie's Frames,  along with Edgar's Swirls and
Trudi's Vines with a mixture of antique taupe and pink embossing powders.

Sharon's Butterflies embossed with light pink and the title with antique taupe.

I've created a PICTURE TUTORIAL for you to view my creative process:...

Step 1:  Add some light stamping along with some masking using a light gel medium
and then embossing with light pink embossing powder.

Step 2:  Begin your layering process.

Step 3:  Continue to build up your layers.

Step 4:  Add your photo.

Step 5:  Add chipboard:  Frankie's Frame, Edgar's Swirls and Trudi's Vine along with flowers.
Apply some additional stamping along the edges of your paper background.

Step 6:  Add additional flowers to the right of the photo and build up some paper layers.
Add your title and Element Set 1.

I hope I have inspired you.
See you next month!
