"A Laugh Is A Smile That Burst"
Layout By
Di Garling

Hi there 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by the blog.
Today I have another layout to share with you featuring
some of our gorgeous chipboard pieces...

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Handrawn Heart Frames
A Laugh Is A Smile That Burst - title
Aztec Feathers

I started off with a little mixed media on my background & then
set about altering the chippie pieces.

The "title" was simply coloured with acrylic paints.

These fabulous "Aztec Feathers" were treated exactly the same as the title.

I absolutely adore this "Handrawn Heart Frame" 
& to make it stand out on the layout I simply heat embossed it in white.

I really think it draws the eye to my photos !!

Another layout complete.
I hope you like it & can get a little inspiration from it perhaps.

Until next time...

Until next time.

"Fun in the Sun"
By Charmane Sharp

Hello 2Crafty friends, 
Charmane here with you today to share my first 
layout as a new member of the 2Crafty Team.

I am thrilled to share my love of chipboard with you all.

Here are the pieces I chose to work with for this layout.

2Crafty chipboard used...
Fun in the Sun
Turkish Lattice Panel
Mixed Fine Border Set
Filigree Arrows
Tribal Ornate Border

I wanted to give the chipboard a grunge look with a little metallic shine.

I achieved this by using a glue stick and randomly applying foil in 
a haphazard pattern.

As always I love to design with lots of layers and texture 
to create an interesting composition .

I hope you like my beach inspired layout today.

"A Mothers Treasure is her Daughter"
By Lisa-Marie Watling

Hello there, beautiful 2 Crafty Fans!

Today I want to share with you, a soft and dreamy layout I created of my precious daughter and I!

So these are the 2Crafty chippies that I used on this layout:

Here are some additional photo's of my piece, and some extra info 
on how I altered the chippie pieces.

I painted all my chippie pieces with white acrylic paint.  One of the buckles was misted with
 green and coated in Glossy Accents; I then cut it in half to use beside my photograph and
on the edge of my page.  I love the way the paint has crackled under the Glossy Accents!

My title chippie was given a few extra coats of white acrylic and then I highlighted
 'Mother' and 'Daughter' with some pink glitter glue.  I inked one of the arrows with
green and then highlighted the heart with green glitter glue.

My second buckle was left white and coated with Glossy Accents; I also cut it in half
 (but differently to the first one) and then popped on above and below my photo cluster.

I do hope I have inspired you!

Happy scrapping!  
Until next time,

"This Is My Life"
by Badbarbie

Hi 2 Crafty fans. 

It's Bad Barbie again with a summer creation...
I'm sad because our summer is coming to an end.

So let's forget this detail and focus on my navy & white creation.

I used a picture of me and my girls in a pool at Costa Rica.
I want to cut out the background so let's do this with my scissors.

I used round circles stamped navy with white round in modeling paste.

Little bit of watercolor navy too.

"This Is My Life"

I used a lot of white for my chippies: 

Embossing powders, gesso with some touches of watercolor in navy.

Over the top of my frame, I used a heart swirl to aad more details.

List of 2Crafty products :...

If you are like me and summer is not 12 month by year, 
let's scrap your most beautiful picture too!

 Good crafting!

Cherished Moments
by Marie Claude Rodier

Hi 2Crafty fans,
Marie Claude here today to show you my latest layout using beautiful 2Crafty products.
In August, we went on vacation near the coast and we took an afternoon off at the beach.
Listening to the waves and watching the kids play around.
Moments like these are truly cherished!!!
 "Cherished Moments"

"Cherished Moments" title was embossed with two silver mint tones using an ombre technique.
The effect is hard to see on picture but it add a beautiful contrast.

The same ombre technique was used for the three "Aztec feathers" in contrasting light pink tones.

"6" Mandala No. 3" was basecoated in white gesso and embossed using mint powder.

2Crafty Products Used…
6" Mandala No. 3
Aztec Feathers
Cherished Moments

Until next time, be happy and be creative!

Day at the beach
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

Summer time has officially come to a close here with my kids going back to school after two months of fun and amazing memories! They're happy to see all their friends again but they say they already miss the beach and can't wait to go back next year. We've been going for 4 straight years now and they enjoy it even more every year.

The layout I'm sharing today show them with the same pose taken on each of these four years. We made it so they wore the same swimsuit the first two years, but they've been growing too fast for us to repeat that after. 

"Day at the beach"

On the "Palm Leaves Set", I applied a green embossing ink and then applied green-gold wax on top.

For the "Flower set 1", I inked with teal ink and then used a blue embossing ink on top.

On the "Fish Net Bits", I used teal wax applied with a small brush.

For the title, "Day at the Beach", I used a blue-white-gold embossing enamel.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:
Palm Leaves set [M00739]
Fishing net bits [M00657]
Day at the beach [W00423]
Flower set 1 [M00817]

That is all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this and that it will give you some inspiration for your creations! And if your kids are going back to school, I wish you and them to have a good time! I'll be back soon with more ideas to share.
