"This is my Happy Face"
Layout by Marie Sabatier

Hello everyone,

Here is my second inspiration for this month of March, 
a colourful and cheerful layout with the dazzling smile of my grandson Leo. 

I used a brand new chipboard "Thin Rectangle Stacked Frames". Superb! 
There are also square and hexagonal I can’t wait to try them.

"This is my Happy Face"

The 2Crafty Chipboard used:

- This is my Happy Face
- Thin Rectangle Stacked Frames
- Squiggly Heart Cluster

The chipboard comes in 3 parts, I used the largest part. 

As always, I prepare the chipboard by applying a layer of white gesso. 

After choosing the paper I decided to put a simple layer of acrylic paint color
 "Mermaid Sparkle" on the frame. Then I added some paper and interlaced the colors. 

The frame gives character to the layout, by its grandeur and originality.

I then placed my photo and created two clusters of embellishments on each side of the frame.

On my title I add powder to emboss white color. Then some green paint stains. 
He finds his place wonderfully. 

Voluntarily, I cut the chipboard in half. 

With one part I create a bunch at the bottom of my page and the other part I drag it into my cluster.

This layout makes me smile, I hope for you too!

Thank you, see you soon.

Her Smile Layout by Tania Ridgwell

Hello there!

Tania joining you today to share the last of my DT projects for March.  I have created a layout.

"Her Smile"

2 Crafty Chipboard Products:

*Her Smile
*11" Round Flourish Frame
*Thin Hexagon Stacked Frames
*Pretty Flowers

I used the gorgeous Mintay Bloomville Collection to create the base for my Layout.

I cut the 11' Round Flourish Frame in two and as I wanted it to stand out on the background paper I kept it raw.  I gave the rest of the chipboard pieces a coat of gesso and once dry I painted them all with Blushed Peach Opal Polish.  I then randomly sprayed the Pretty Flowers and the Hexagon Stacked Frame with white Linen Dylusions Spray. I covered the Her Smile Chipboard with the White Linen Spray so it just had a slight tinge of the Blushed Peach Opal Polish.

I built up the layers under my photo with some patterned paper and fussy cut elements and then added the Hexagon Stacked Frame over my photo.  I embellished the page with lots of yummy blooms and added some texture with art stones and prills.  I finished off my layout by adding the Her Smile chippy title.

Thats' all from me today, I hope I have inspired you all with my Layout.  Until next time thanks so much for stopping by.

"Discovery" layout by Moira Gilowey

Good day to all 2Crafty creative friends.
I am sharing my new layout with you all
today using some of the amazing
chipboards from the collection.

Chipboards which I used on this layout include

~ Esther vine,
~ love seat 1, and
~ decorative rod set 2.

I painted the chipboard pieces with an 
avocado green paint and then, once dry, 
I lightly painted them with Golden Calcite (copper)
Color Glow diluted with water.

Once I had added all ephemera and details 
around my photograph, I added stenciling with 
a combination of gel medium and the copper Color Glow.

I hope that this layout has inspired you in some way.

Until next time!

By Charmane Sharp


Hello everyone, Charmane with you again to share a 
layout I created using the 49 and Market Tranquility Collection.
Beautiful muted tones for my family sunset photo means my 
2Crafty Chipboard shines on the layout due to using embossing
powders. All the chipboard stands out giving glorious detail.

2Crafty Chipboard used...

6' Butterfly Clock Frame
Fine Word set 1
Ariel 6' Spray
Leafy Shrub set 3

I cut the Butterfly piece off the clock and heated Blush embossing
 Powder on it before tucking in the corner of my photo cluster.

Ariel's Spray adds beautiful movement with its swirls and
gorgeous Peach tone.

Love these word sets! I think it has a whimsical feel by floating it
across the top of my photo with a small amount of glue on each end.
Has the same Blush colour as the Clock applied to it.

I used 2 packs of the Shrub set so I had 2 identical pieces to tuck
 into my floral elements. A shade of blue chosen to match the envelope
my photo is coming out of. This means I have duplicates of all the Shrub
pieces for other layouts. Thanks for stopping by the blog.

Until next time...

A Mixed Media Layout
By Di Garling

Well hi there & hello, Di Garling  here with you today
with another layout to share & it features my
eldest granddaughter Mia when she was just three years old. Time sure flies!!

This layout has a watercolour mixed media background
 that I simply created using plain white cardstock.
I think it is just the right look I wanted for my page.
2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Fern Leaf Set
Groovy Flower Set
Circle Words Set #1-SMILE
Berry Vine Set

Here I have used one of the "Circle Words" for my title & simply
coloured it black. I wanted it to be a stark contrast against all the hot pink. 

Next up I used the ever popular "Groovy Flowers" to pop in amongst
all the other flowers & by painting them white I think they both stand
out but also add a calmness to the busyness of the clustering.
I cut most of these in half to make them even more economical.

Next up I used some of both the
"Fern Leaf Set" as well as some of the "Berry Vine Set"
  & I coloured all of these green to add some contrast to my page.

I firstly coated the "Berry Vine" leaves in some crackle paste
to add some extra texture before I proceeded to paint them green.

Well I hope you like my layout today & perhaps draw
 some inspiration from it for one of your future projects.

Until next time....

Love at First Sight ~ by Lisa-Marie

 Hello there 2C Fans!

Today I'm sharing a layout of my beloved daughter and I.  When I saw her for the first time, it was definitely Love At First Sight!

These Chippies are featured on my layout today:

Love At First Sight Title

My title is simply given a coat of white enamel accents to make it pop on the page.

I coloured a smaller zipper frame with coloured pencil and the larger one has been misted with metallic minty green and coated with Glossy Accents.  

My foliage have all been treated the same - fuschia chalk coating, silver gel pen accents and then finished off with Glossy Accents.

Until next time!
