Perfect as you are
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

Today I'd like to share a layout I made featuring the daughter of one of my besties.
Spring is in full bloom here and I find that the picture captured the warmth and joy that
we feel when we awaken from our long winter slumber.

"Perfect as you are"

I cut some parts of the "Leafy Shrub Set 1" to make it blend with the "Esther Vine". Then, on both, I applied two coats of honey ink and inked the borders in black.

For the "Chunky Dandelion" and "Whispy Dandelions", I used one coat of metallic red paint and inked the borders in black. For the title, "Perfect as you are", I applied some black-bronze embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

Esther Vine [M00497]
Leafy Shrub Set 1 [M00493]
Chunky dandelions [M00853]
Whispy dandelions [M00705]
Perfect as you are [W00589]

That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed my creation and that it'll inspire you. I'll be back in a few weeks with more ideas to share with you! See you soon!

Best Journey of my Life ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

 Hello fellow crafters and 2C fans!

Hope you're all just fine and dandy!

Today I'm sharing a project I created for 2C in conjunction with clues from CSI: Color Stories Inspiration Case File 354.

I used these chippies on this piece:

My title has been chalked with a deep pink and then coated with Glossy Accents.

I sprayed my butterfly with a metallic yellow.

I swiped the leaves of all the roses with a vibrant lime green.  The larger roses have been swiped with pink and the smaller roses with a yellow and a bit of orange.

All the element chippies have been coated with Glossy Accents.

Until next time, then!

Great Memories~ Layout by Priya Mishra

 Hello Hello...
Welcome back to our blog for some gorgeous inspiration with 2Crafty Chipboard.
Today I have a lovely Layout to share with you all.

2Crafty Products Used:

Half Circle Flourish Frame
Puzzle piece
Decorative Rod
Tribal Ornate Border
Mini Title Stick

For this layout, I first started with my focal element which I created on an old CD. After giving a coat of white gesso, I layered it with stamping. After deciding on the 2Crafty Chipboard pieces to be used, I gave a coat of white gesso on them. Used the Half circle frame around my photo which is also fussy cut instead of a regular size photo. I love how these decorative border and rod set became a part of this project and make it look so beautiful.

Once I stuck everything on the CD, I created the background of this layout using this Headlines News paper and I stamped and used some alphabet stickers . Once I was happy with the background, I stuck the previously made CD piece on it. I used sky blue and Mustard yellow Water colors and added splash of them on desired spaces. I love how pale the colors appear and complement my chipboards.

For the finished look, I added few flowers, some black thread, a pebble and rhinestones. Also stamped at few more places. I colored the Word Stick very lightly with sky blue water color. These sticks are great to use on layout. I love how it complements my whole page.

Hope this inspires you.

Picture Perfect
By Marie Claude Rodier

 Hi girls,

My turn to show you my newest project full of 2Crafty goodies. I love how easy it is to add swirls, frames and foliage to beautifully embellish any project.

My youngest son loves animals, all of them, small, big, scary or friendly. This picture is capturing this magic bond he has with them. Simply adorable! 

Picture Perfect

As always, most of my chipboards were initially basecoated with white gesso. Frame Jenna was covered with dark olive watercolor pencil and highlighted with dry brushed gesso.

Picture perfect stick from Mini Title Stick Set 2 was only shorten, without any special treatment.

Spring flower bunches were highlighted with pink watercolor ink.

Florence Swirl Set was painted with dark green paint and highlighted with white gesso.

2Crafty products used...

Frame Jenna

Spring Flower Bunches

Florence Swirl Set

Mini Title Stick Set 2

Until next time, be happy and be creative!

"adore" by Robin Schelin

 Hi 2Crafty fans! Welcome to the blog!

I'm back again to share my latest layout with you.  Something a little bit sparkly and a little bit glamorous!  I love using dark backgrounds, it just makes the colors pop!  And then you add in some fabulous 2Crafty Chipboard and you can't go wrong!!

Hope you like it!


This layout is all about the chipboard! It gives it the pizzazz I was going for. I love how something a simple as chipboard can make your design leap off the page!

2Crafty Chipboard used:

Ariel's Spray
Geo Panel
Foliage Set 6
Fine Word Set 1

On Ariel's Spray I first covered it with Distress Ink - Rusty Hinge.  Then I rubbed on a little Rust Effect  paste.  After that I painted on Metallique Wax - Old Denim, randomly over the spray, but not too much.  Finally, I painted on Metallique Wax - Peacock, over the parts not covered by the Old Denim Wax making sure to let the rust color peek through. Since this is the focal piece on the layout,  I wanted it to shine!

For the Geo Panel I used the same technique as I did on Ariel's Spray.  Then I tucked it in on the left side of the photo under the flowers to bring a balance of color to that side.

I used Distress ink in Rusty Hinge and Rust Effects Paste on the Foliage Set 6 just as I did on Ariel's Spray and the Geo Panel, except with these, I didn't add any Wax on the leaves.  Instead, I added a coating of Diamond Glaze and then sprinkled them with Diamond Dust.  Finishing them off with a little dab of wax on the berries.  I tucked them under the flowers beneath the photo and inserted one in the middle of the swirl on the right to complete the flow of Ariel's Spray.  And lastly, adding one to the upper left to draw the eye upward.

 For the title from the Fine Word Set, I just painted on Metallique Wax in Peacock. 

When you take photos of something very sparkly, it never looks as good as it does in real life! lol!  The lighting just doesn't catch it right.  Anyway, I hope you get the jist of it, and it inspired you to try new things with your chipboard and make it the focal point of your project!

'Welcome to Paradise'
with Lisa Amiet


Hello all!
It's Lisa here today to share some sunshine with you!
Yes, it may be starting to get a little cold, so I thought I would create
a bright sunny layout for you.

2Crafty Chipboard products used:

For this layout I have started with a black background, and have added some splashes of colour. 
I then built up some of my papers.

I have layered in a couple of the 'Flowering Clusters',
that I have painted bright pink to match my sunny layout.

I have also used some of the leaves from the 'Foliage Set 5',
which I painted in Aqua,
and added in among my floral fussy cut pieces. 

To finish I have added one of the 'Arrow Word Set 2',
that I have painted yellow, as my title.

I really love how the bright colours pop on the black background.
I hope that my layout has brought a little sunshine to your day!

Until next time!
