Debbi Tehrani's November Shares

Hi, 2Crafty Fans! 
I'm here to share three layouts I made 
using the fantastic 2Crafty chipboard.
That's my mom and my step-dad, who passed away last Christmas. 
I've been working on a scrapbook for my mom, and I plan to give this page to her.
I used the November challenge at Scrap Around the World as inspiration for this page.

Here are some details... How beautiful are these Line Word Titles
I love how they stretch across the page. Since I scrap 8 x 8, I had to trim it a bit. 
I first coated my chipboard title with gesso 
and then painted it with Twinkling H2O's. It's super shimmery in real life.

The 2Crafty chipboard doilies are so pretty, and I was able to use one, cut in half to look like I had used two. I also painted this with a white shimmery Twinkling H2O, The butterfly was also painted with Twinkling H2Os.

How sweet are these pen nibs? I mixed two different Twinkling H2O inks to give it an aged patina look and painted the heart to match the butterfly. The heart is actually the inside of a Heart Silhouette. Those hearts are a great product to get because you basically get double the hearts!

"Smile for the Camera"

That's my husband's niece. I'm making a book for her too. 
I used the November challenge at The Color Room as a starting point for my layout.
Here are some details from this layout...
I inked many of the pieces black, including this Tiny Funky Frame, with stamp ink, 
giving it a cool matte look. I also inked the cameras 
and then coated it with embossing powder to give it a wet look 
that went with the pond picture. I outlined the grooves in the camera
with a fine-tipped black pen. Love those grooved details 
2Crafty adds to many of their chipboard pieces!

How awesome are these Word Circles? They are just perfect to serve as a part of an interesting title embellishement. I used a second, larger camera from the set to hold part of the title.

The Film Strips are always a perfect embellishment for adding a border. 
I love how the film strip frames the patterned paper behind it. 
I cut the film strip in two pieces so that it could extend further, 
tucking the cut ends behind the photo.

"Please Stay Thin"
I made this page for a Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration last month. The story stemmed from a prompt that said "If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you write in only three words?"

I only used one piece of chipboard for this page, but I think it's really a highlight
 of this page and was perfect for this Case File, so I wanted to share it.
