Forever - For 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi all, today I have a layout I made for 2Crafty Chipboard. This month 2Crafty are sponsoring the More Than Words Challenge and their theme is Yesterday and Vintage. The word YESTERDAY made me think of old photos. The reason why I started scrapbooking was to preserve these photos, so I chose a favorite old photo of my daughter from 9 years ago. I followed the VINTAGE inspiration on my layout with my colour choices of warm classic tones, plus the use of antique lace and pearls.


2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Thick Vine
Frame Celia's Flourish
Flower Doilles
Friendship Mini Word Pack
Lacey Border Set



The More Than Words August Challenge - Yesterday & Vintage

I kept all the chipboard very basic on this layout and only used black ink and white gesso on them.


The Corner Thick Vine and Frame Celia's Flourish I covered with the black ink. I placed the frame over my photo, then I cut the Vine in half and placed half on the top of my layout and half on the bottom. 


I used two coats of white gesso on the Flower Doilles, Friendship Mini Word Pack and Lacey Border Set. This gave them a crisp finish. I only used the largest  Flower Doily in the pack, I cut it in half to place on either side of my photo

Wedding Frame for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone. Today I have an off the page creation for you that I have made using lots of 2Crafty Chipboard. A friend of mine got married recently and I made her this as a wedding gift.


2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Alison's
Lattice Leaves
Lacey Border Set
Moroccan Bits
Mini Word Set 2


I started with a plain white frame from Ikea and I took out the glass to create a shadow box.  I then coloured the Corner Alison's with Stampendous Shabby White Embossing enamel and placed the corners on the top and bottom of the frame.
I used this same embossing enamel to colour the Moroccan Bits which I cut into smaller pieces and placed inside the flowers clusters.


On the border from the Lacey Border Set and the Together title from the Mini Word Set 2 I used a pale pink embossing powder. I cut the Lacey Border in half and placed the pieces on the inside edge of the frame.


Finally I used the Nuvo Crystal Drops in Neptune on the Lattice Leaves.

#Believe: A layout for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone, today is the day I share my second layout for July made for 2Crafty Chipboard


2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Doily Frames
Mini # Word Set 1
Palm Leaves Set
Sammi's Swirls



On this layout I coloured most of the chipboard pieces with embossing powder. I love using embossing powder to alter chipboard but I don't do it as much as I used to because I can only scrap when my son is asleep and the heat gun is to noisy to use :)
I used a white embossing powder on the Doily Frames and a very pale beige embossing powder on the Sammi's Swirls.


For the title from the Mini # Word Set 1, I found a deep blue glitter embossing powder which matched my photo perfectly. By the time I got to the Palm Leaves my little one was sleep so I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Neptune to colour them instead.


I placed the smaller Doily Frame to the left of my photo then I cut the larger Doily Frame in half and placed one piece above and one below the photo. I added the Sammi's Swirl pieces on either side of the photo and finally I placed the Palm leaves tucked under the flowers.

Sweet: A layout for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi all, today I have a layout to share with you that I made with gorgeous chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard.


2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Anika's Floral Frame
Scroll Set 3
Skeleton Trees
Word Circle Set 1



I started by coating all my chipboard pieces with white gesso. 
I used the Prima Pastel Dreams watercolour set to add colour to the Anika's Floral Frame, the Scroll Set 3 and the Word Circle Set 1 pieces. I used the pastel teal, peach and yellow watercolours, and I also used these colours on my background paper.


On the Skeleton Trees I decided to use a darker colour to add a deeper dimension to the layout, I used the Prima acrylic paint in steampunk copper. 


I paired the beautiful chipboard pieces with lots of flowers, lace, metal embellishments and die cut leaves to complete the layout.
