January Inspiration by Jaya Raghuvanshi

Hello 2Crafty Fans!

This is Jaya here today and I have two layouts to share with you all. I hope you will
 like them and will be inspired to try out these with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chippies.


 Some close ups-

I just absolutely love creating some sort of flowing pattern in my
pages and the 2Crafty chippies help me so much in this!.
Look how beautifully the leafy flourishes tie up the whole page. Absolutely
 love them. The chippies have been covered in white paint and I used
watercolors and mist to give them a hint of color.

2Crafty chippies used-

Hand-drawn Heart Frames Happy Loopy font
6" Clock face frame
Leaft Shrub set 3

My next layout is

" A Moment To Treasure"

Some close ups-

 I had so much fun making this grungy page with loads of mixed media techniques.
I absolutely... absolutely love the way the chippies helped me tie up the whole page.
It was way easier than it looks. Believe me!.

I covered the chippies in black gesso and used Prima waxes to highlight a few areas.
The chain chippie has also been covered in Bronze wax.

January Inspiration By Ingrid Gooyer

Hi everyone!
Ingrid here today with my first blogpost for 2Crafty Chipboards.
I'm so thrilled to be part of this amazing team together with all of these talented ladies!

Here is my first project: 


For my layouts I like to work on thin canvas boards, perfect to hold all of those paints.
I wanted to make a project with a wintery and yet cozy feel.
For the background I used a stencil with dots circles to mimic the snow.
Painted with brown colors and once dry, touched with some gesso to give it a
 more soft look. Also added some splatters.

On this photo my youngest girl, sooo much in love with her boyfriend and it shows, doesn't it?! 

The "Love" title got two coats with gesso, applied by using a small sponge.

I used the negative piece from the "Pointed Doiley Frame"circles as well.
Also painted with some gesso.

The pointed circle with some flowers, white berries and small wooden pieces.

I wanted to use the "Chain Border" here, not only one piece but two pieces together.
Thought it would give it some more texture.

The 2Crafty chipboard used:
Love Loopy Font
Chain Borders
Pointed Doily Frame

And here is my second project:


I love working on canvasses.
These are 15x15cm and perfect for cards.
I started the background with paper and tapes.
Added the paints and once dry some modeling paste and splatters.
All of those gorgeous chipboards were painted with some gesso using a small sponge.

I used a small piece of the "Chain Border" along the side with the butterfly on top.
Just love those "word circles"
Also used some threads and wooden beads for more texture.

Had this 52 metal piece for ever in my stash and finally got a chance to use it.

Here I also used a small piece of the "chain border".

The beautiful "Sharon butterfly".

The "Word Circles".

A small wooden heart touched with some gesso.

The "Sharon butterfly" on the "Dotted Circle Frame".

The 2crafty chipboard used:
Chain Borders
Card Word Circles
Circle Dot Frames
Sharon Butterflies

Hope you liked my first post. See you the next time!
Enjoy your day

January Inspiration By Debbie Burns

Hi everyone!
 Debbie here with you today from the other end of the world, the United States. 
I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing design team and look forward to sharing my
 creations with you.

"Just Love Our Story"

I love to create romantic, shabby chic layouts with lots of layering, mixed media flowers and of course chipboard! I started off by adding some inking to the background paper along with some masking in pink and copper tones.

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Just Love Our Story - title
Ella's Border
Ava's Frame
Addy's Butterflies

I used several pieces of chipboard here, 2 of Addy's Butterflies and Ava's Frame.
 All were heat embossed with a mixture of copper, pink and antique taupe embossing powders.
 I added some peony pink stenciling mousse as well on the pieces.

On the right hand side of my layout I used the Ella's border chipboard treated in the same fashion as the butterflies and frames.  I added some copper microbeads.

I love to mix embossing powders.
  My title is a combination of pink and antique taupe powders.
Love the aged look!

"Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle"

I love this photo of a dear friend's daughter.
 She has such a sweet smile. I added some pink ink along with some light misting
 on the background along with some snowflakes.

2 Crafty Chipboard used...
Breanna's Swirl
Flower Doilies
Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle - title
Brooke's Swirls

On both sides of the photo I used a flower doily chipboard embossed pink.  Beneath my flower cluster is one of Brooke's Swirls  embossed with icicle powders and tiny silver microbeads.

The right of my photo I placed a flower doily chipboard along with Breanna's Swirl chipboard, embossed with icicle powder and tiny silver microbeads.

Love this title!  A perfect compliment to the sweet photo.  I embossed with light pink and icicle embossing powers.  I added some paint splatters to the background paper along with some bling.

Well, that's it for now.  I hope I have inspired you!

Two Layouts and Two Videos
By Karine Gagnon

Hi there crafty friends

My name is Karine Gagnon and I'm a proud new member of the fabulous 2Crafty team!
 I'm so happy to get the chance to work with great products and such talented gals!
I'm 37 and I live in Quebec city (Canada) with my partner and our two children, Marianne and Antoine, who are the main stars of my layouts. 

I'm excited to share with you my first pair of layouts. So here we go!

«Live Laugh Love»

For this first layout, I went with a yellow, aqua and brown color combo. 

I choose this picture of my daughter because she looks so happy in it! I framed her
with the smallest circle from the 6'' Circle Revolution Frames, which I
embossed with dark brown embossing powder.

I chose to frame my picture with the Edgar Swirls.
They are embossed with dark brown embossing powder as well.

My title piece is the Live Laugh Love piece, which was treated as all the
 previous chipboard pieces. I just love this title!

2Crafty chipboard pieces used:

6'' Circle Revolution Frames
Edgar Swirls
Live Laugh Love

I have filmed my creative process video too.


My second layout is much darker than the first one. 

When I got my order of chippies, I wanted to use the Lusius Swirl right away.
I find it so elegant! I embossed it with a dark teal embossing powder. 

I did the same with my two Corner Gemma's. Those chipboards are so delicate! I love them!

My title piece is part of the Fine Word Set 1. Again, I love the delicate calligraphy font.

2Crafty products used: 

Corner Gemma's
Fine Word Set 1 
Lusius Swirl

I made another video of my creative process for you to see. Enjoy.

Thanks so much for dropping by today and I hope my layouts inspire you. 
Have a nice crafty day,
