March Inspiration By Bec

Hi all, today I'm here to share two layouts that I have made this month.

This Boy

I also made a video tutorial for this layout so please enjoy.

First up is my take on a masculine layout with flowers.

2Crafty Chipboard  used:
Star Circular Frames
Star Bubble Set
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack
This Boy title


I love the all the different star chipboard pieces in the 2Crafty range, so on this layout
 I used 3 different star chipboards.

Close up of the gorgeous Circular Star Frames and the cute Star Bubble Set.

This layout was made using 49&Market  papers and flowers.


Next up is a layout featuring both my kids.

 2Crafty Chipboard  used:
Elsa Frame
Word Circle Set 1
Ariel's Spray
Chloe's Vines

I coloured the Elsa Frame with an embossing powder in Aged Ivroy, 
I then cut the frame in half and placed it under my photo.

I used embossing powder to colour all my chipboard pieces on this layout. On the 
Ariel's Spray I used a light purple embossing powder. Then a shabby white powder
 on the Love title from the Word Circle Set 1.

On the Chloe's Vines I used 3 different embossing powders. To get the multi colour effect I first used Versamark embossing ink on the chipboard, next I sprinkled the embossing powder in patches until I had all 3 colours on before I heat set the powder. The colours I used were, gold, beige and teal.

This layout was made using 49andMarket papers and flowers.

Thanks for visiting

Bec 💗

March Inspiration and VIDEO TUTORIAL
By Sabrina

Hello 2crafty fans!

It is my turn to show my March layouts. 
The first one I'm revealing was a self-challenge to create a page featuring myself on a colorful page. 

"This Me"

It's always hard to find inspiration to create a page about myself but
 I really like how this one turned out!

I painted the chipboard title: This is me with a black paint. 

I embossed the Lattice leaves chipboard with a white and gold embossing enamel.

For the Swaying Branches chipboard, I painted them with a 
silver paint and used a pink embossing ink.

I painted the Frame Lucy's Flourish chipboard with bright 
turquoise ink then embossed with white embossing powder.

In this layout I used the following 2Crafty Chipboards products:

Frame Lucy's Flourish FR0047
Lattice Leaves M00589
Swaying Branches M00732
This is Me W00351


The next layout I am presenting today is the pre-school picture of my daughter.
 For this layout, I have also prepared a video, that you can see at the bottom of this post, 
showing the various techniques I used to prepare the chipboards so they look even more awesome.

I painted the Summer Leaf Stem chipboard with embellishment mousse then I
 embossed them with pink embossing ink.

I embossed the beautiful Climbing Rose bush chipboard with white and pink embossing enamel.

I used some copper enamel to emboss the Precious Loopy Font chipboard.

For the Grid bits, I used a gold pigment ink as a paint.

For this layout I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

Precious Loopy Font W00300
Climbing Rose Bush DB0100
Summer Leaf Stems M00411
Grid Bits M00722

This is my video tutorial showing how I did my layout:


Thanks! Hope you enjoyed my layouts and they gave you some inspiration.
See you next month for more ideas!

March Inspiration by Torsa

Hi friends ,

Today I am here at 2Crafty Chipboard blog with March inspiration!!
Spring is at the door, so this month I have created two spring projects.
Hope you love them !!

"Let the adventure begin "

I used 7 Dot's Studio's Paper Collection, gorgeous flowers from 49 and market , Cuts2luv badge
 and Lindy's gang and of course 2Crafty Chipboard!!

First I applied gesso on all my chipboards , then colored with Lindy's Magicals!! I did
 apply brown and green shades mainly with a little touches of golden !!
After drying all the chipboards , distressed them with Distress Ink !! I got a perfect distressed
 look of my chipboards !!

Below are few close-ups :-

The whispy pieces of chipboard popping out amongst the flowers adds a lovely textural contrast.

For this Layout I have used following 2-Crafty Chipboards :

1. Leafy Shrub Set 2
2.Esther Vine
3.Let the Adventure Begin 

"Cherish the moment "

For this project I have used a round canvas and created the texture with tulle.
 Colored the background with Lindy's Gang!! Added few laces, threads and resin
 embellishments and aCuts2luv badge with my 2Crafty Chipboard!

I have colored the delicate "Fine Leafy Bush" with green acrylic paint.
 And heat embossed the Circle frame, butterfly and the title with Lindy's embossing powder.
 I have embossed all of the chipboard twice, to give a lovely thick finish.
  Then added some fine glitters on the butterfly for some extra shimmer!

Below are few close-ups :-

Circle Dot frame is perfect around the photos.

Love the delicateness of the Fine Leafy Bush

Glittery finish on the Butterfly Frame.

I have used following 2 Crafty Chipboards :-

1 Fine Leafy Bush
         2. Cherish the Moments
3.Butterfly Frames
       4. 6" Circle Dot Frames 

That's all for today !!
 See you soon :)

More March Inspiration - Part Two
By Di Garling
"Live Laugh Love"

Hi there 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by the blog.
Today I have decided to create a boy layout with a CIRCLE theme.
I have this fabulous new stamp set I wanted to use & 2Crafty
has so many great circle shapes so I just went for it.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Live Laugh Love - title
6" Circle Stack
6" Circular Panel
6" Circle Revolution Frames

So I set about stamping lots of circles, heat embossed them in black
 & then coloured them up with some Lindy's sprays before cutting them out.

For the chipboard title "Live Laugh Love" I painted it with a Ranger
blue paint dabber & when dry rubbed on a little Finnabair Wax in copper.

All the chipboard circles & frames were coloured up with the same
Finnabair Art Alchemy Metallique Wax In "Metallic Copper".

These wax pastes are so easy to use & cover really well too, I just used my finger !!

As you can see in the above photo I cut a few pieces of the 
"Circular Panel" up & poked them in here & there.

A little mixed media & some stamping on my background & I even tied
 some string around the layout too, a great way to add extra texture !!

Well thats all from me today, I hope you liked my layout.
I will see you back here again next month with more.

Until then
Cheers Di Garling
