January Inspiration by Bec Genet

Hi, today is my first post for 2Crafty Chipboard, I'm so happy to join this amazing team for 2018.

1 Year....

My first layout is for my son's 1st birthday late last year, I can't believe he is one already!!
As soon as I saw the Year in Summary title I knew it would be perfect to mark his first year.

The 2 Crafty Chipboard I used were:
Clock Face Frames 12x12
Lattice Leaves
Year in Summary Title
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack

Here is how I altered the Clock Frames

First I used a stamp with versamark to stamp randomly on the chipboard. The I used Black embossing powder on the larger clock and Aged Gold embossing powder on the smaller clock

I used Distress inks to add colour, I put Tea Dye on the large clock and Hickory Smoke on the small clock. Next I added some Vintage photo Distress ink to the edges.

Here is what they looked like finished. I treated the Tiny Stars the same as the small clock, and the Title was coloured with Aged Ivory Embossing ink. 

Papers are from the Prima French Rivera Collection, Flowers and Metals are also Prima


My second layout features my friends gorgeous baby girl

The 2 Crafty Chipboard I used:
Frame Celia's Flourish
Leafy Twig Branches
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack
Fine Word Set 2

I started by coating all the chipboard pieces in white gesso. I left the Title and Frame with just the gesso, The Tiny Hearts I coloured with Dusty Concord Distress ink and the Leafy Twigs with a Gelato in Pistachio. 

Papers from Maja Designs Vintage Spring and Enjoying the Outdoors Collections, Flowers from Prima and 49 & Market

Thanks for stopping by today

January Inspiration By Sabrina Turpin

"Life Documented"

Hello everyone!
I hope that 2018 is treating you well so far. It has been fantastic for me as I am 
absolutely thrilled to be joining the amazing 2Crafty team!

Let me introduce myself. I’m Sabrina Turpin, from Quebec, Canada, mom of two
 fantastic kids. I work in a daycare by day and I am a chipboard ninja by night!

For my first post, I’ll be sharing two new layouts. The first one, “Life Documented”, 
features my daughter having fun in a playground.

I inked and then used a transparent embossing powder on the
"Frame Madelines Flourish".

For the title I simply painted and inked it & the 
"Pointed Doiley Frames" I did the same.

Again on the "Tiny Leaf Stems" I did the same, just painting & inking as it looks so good.
These I used an embossing ink on the "Sharon's Butterflies".

For this page, I used the following 2Crafty Chipboards:

"Life Documented - title
Sharon's Butterflies
Frame Madeline's Flourish
Pointed Doiley Frames
"Tiny Leaf Stems"


My second page, "Friends", puts into the spotlight one of my closest friend.

For the "Funky Hearts" I embossed them with embossing powder.

The larger hearts were painted and inked & the smaller ones were
 embossed with embossing powder.

The "Twiggy Branch" was painted painted with acrylic metallic paints.

The border is from the "Lacey Border Set #1"& both that & the "Damask"
 were painted in acrylic paints.
The "Friends" title was embossed with embossing powders.
