'#SNAPCHAT Selfie'
layout by Rachael Funnell

Hello 2 Crafty Fans!
Rach back with you, sharing another layout for May....
This page features my gorgeous girl

'#SNAPCHAT Selfie'

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

hashtag word set 2
Dotted heart circles frame
Funky bug
Fern leaf set
Selfie word

Using the larger circle from Dotted heart circle frame pack, 
I gave the circle part a coat of gesso
 & then using Tim Holtz -Distress pink crayon, I coloured the hearts....

I did the same treatment for my title. I simply gave the word #SNAPCHAT 
a coat of gesso & coloured the word Selfie, again with the pink crayon.....  

Still using Distress Crayons this time a green,
and aiming for a more authentic look with the gorgeous Fern leaves,
thats why I chose not to completely colour in the whole fern.... 

Don't they Look GREAT!

And lastly from the Funky bug set
 this SUPER CUTE lady bug, which I coloured the body yellow,
 then finishing off with adding a coat of gesso to it's legs & antenna's...

Thanks for stopping by
Until next time!

"Remember Moments Like This"
By Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans!

This week for my layout reveal I had the inspiration to create something that would push
 me outside my usual comfort zone. I wanted to create something that would have 
a vintage feel while still providing a nice fresh touch. 

I am sometimes not fully satisfied by my purely "vintage" layouts,
 but I'm quite pleased with the balance I struck here.

"Remember Moments Like This"

On the "Poppy's Ornate Frame", I used metallic teal embossing ink 
and then applied black ink on the contour.

For the "Starlink Panel" in the background, I started by cutting it to give it a rounder 
shape and give the impression that the stars are detached from each other. Then I 
applied a pink embossing enamel powder.

On the "Brook's Swirls", I first applied pink ink and then followed by dabbing a copper embossing ink on top. Finally I applied a diluted silver glaze on top and traced the contour with black ink.

For the title, "Remember moments like this", I applied two coats of black
 embossing powder and some teal metallic embossing ink.

2Crafty Chipboards Used:

Poppy's Ornate Frame [FR119]
Brooke's Swirls [M00428]
Starlink Panel [660046]
Remember moments like this [W00306]

I also prepared a video showing how I prepared the layout and
 the techniques I used for the chipboards.


That's all for me today! I hope this inspired you for your own creations.
 Don't hesitate to push yourself outside your comfort zone, and try mixing it up with
 elements you're more comfortable with! I'll be back soon with more ideas.

 Until then, have fun creating!

I am happy to be on the blog today to show you my newest layout
using 2Crafty Chipboards.

I wanted to create a rustic chic masculine layout.
To do so, I went with a neutral color palette and used a lot of 2Crafty Chipboards
to embellish my project.

"Love - Fine script" title was painted with a vibrant gold acrylic paint.

"Frame Fine Circle with butterflies" was covered with copper wax
and then dry brushed with white gesso.
Small butterflies were covered with vintage gold wax to create contrast.

"Addy's Butterflies" and "Foliage Set 1" were baseboat with white gesso.
And partially painted with blue water soluble oil pastels.

The same treatment was used for the "Leafy Shrub Set 1".

Dream Catcher with Karan Gerber

"Dream Catcher"
With Karan Gerber

Hi Friends and welcome the 2 Crafty Blog. 

I have a mixed media Dream Catcher for you today along with a step x step tutorial.

I used a 6 inch embroidery hoop along with some fabulous pieces from
 2 Crafty to create this beautiful addition to my craft wall. 

The chipboard takes to mediums quite nicely and I love the bold colors on this project. 
I used the inset smaller clock from the large set as it fit the hoop perfectly.

A couple detail shots of the Dream Catcher.

I love layering my chipboard pieces, check out the guide below and you can
 see a step by step on how I put this project together.

"Moon" Canvas
By Elena Martynova + VIDEO

Hello friends, Elena here with you today with my new inspiration!

 I decided to decorate the canvas using photo of me and my daughter
 and a gorgeous chipboard by 2Crafty.

 "Love You To the Moon & Back"

I have prepared a video tutorial for you and I hope you enjoy viewing!


For my project, I used wonderful sprays by Lindy's  to create the background. 
 You can find the names of sprays and paints in my video.
 To make the surface more voluminous and textured, 
I applied the Haute Mess - Molding Paste through a stencil.

I used a lot of different colors from Bad Girls Couture for coloring chipboard. 
Mixed them together to get smooth color transitions. 
Then covered it with embossing powder. 
This made the colors brighter and added gloss.

I'm just in love with this wonderful design !!!

 I added Prima's flowers as a base for the chipboard 
and creating layers and volume.

'Greatest Gift'

For this layout I have started with a mixed media background for my base.

I have left all of my chipboard raw as I wanted a natural feel to it.
I have added in some of the 'Giant Gears'

I have then layered in one of the 'Mini Family Icons'

Some more 'Gears - Medium' 

A small cluster in the corner with layered elements and a 'Medium Gear'
