-2Crafty April Inspiration-

Hello 2Crafty fans,

It is my turn to share my projects for April.
My first project puts my hubby and I in the spotlight.
 Even after 18 years together, we're still in love. 

"Love is in the Air"

For the title, "Love is in the Air", I used a gold embossing powder
 which really makes the text stand out.

I applied a pink metallic embossing enamel on the "Ava's Frame"
 that blends well with the background.

I first painted the "Climbing rose bush" with a black matte paint.
 When dried, I applied a gold embossing ink.

I used a silver metallic paint on the "Fancy Damask", diluted with water. 
Then, on top of the paint, I applied a pink embossing ink.

For this project, I used the following awesome chipboards:
Ava's Frame (FR0096)
Climbing Rose Bush (DB0100)
Fancy Damask (M00564)
Love is in the Air (W00418)

"Family Forever & Always"

The second project I want to show you today is quite special for me. I did the 
"Family forever & always" layout as a gift for a close friend, hard-working
 mom of three that just graduated from university.

On the "handdrawn feathers", I applied a red-gold embossing powder.

To give this nice rusty look to the "Hearth Clumps", I used a red ink,
 then applied some gold-copper embossing ink on top.

Finally, on the title "Family forever & always", I applied a white-pink embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the 2Crafty Chipboards:
Handrawn Feathers (M00588)
Heart Clumps (M00576)
Family Forever and always (W00125)
That's all for this month! I hope these inspire you to create as much
 as I had fun doing them for you! See you next month!


-Mes créations d'avril pour Simple à souhait-

Salut les cocos,
J'espère que vous allez bien en cette journée de tempête printanière! Je suis de passage pour vous présenter mes créations réalisées pour les Étampes Simple à Souhait.
La page "Souvenirs" a été créée pour le défi du mois, qui a pour thème: N'importe quoi. Vous avez jusqu'au 14 mai pour réalisé un projet.

La page "Moment Inoubliable" a été réalisée pour ma chronique Inspiration sur le blog, présentée le 7 avril dernier.


Puis j'ai utilisé le mot "inoubliable" de la planche d'étampes: Mots Large #2

Par la suite, j'ai rajouté un souhait avec la planche d'étampes: Souhaits Ronds #1

J'ai aussi utilisé un badge de la compagnie Accent Scrapbooking provenant d'une collection de Noël intitulée: Noël Hipster.

(Je trouvais qu'il se prêtait bien au thème de ma page! hihihi)

Sur ce message, je vous souhaite un bon temps des sucres et surtout profitez-en pour prendre de superbes photos afin de créer de merveilleux chefs d'oeuvre!

Au plaisir!

March inspiration for 2Crafty

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 in a colorful page. 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 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 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!
