"You Rock My World" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty fans!

My big boy is growing up too fast! This week he's leaving for a full week-end by himself to go to a big swimming competition. It's the first time he'll be so far from home by himself! He's growing up to be such a wonderful boy. That's why I decided to create a layout of him sending his love to the world. I'm sharing this layout with you, I hope it'll give you some inspiration!

"You rock my World"



On the "Stars" chipboard, in the back, I applied a black embossing ink and a glittering pencil on top (that's why it's shimmering like this). For the the "Swirly Star Border", in the front, I used a black gesso and then I applied some green wax on top that gives that metallic gold look.



On the "Checkerboard Clumps", I used some mint green embossing powder. For the title, "You Rock My World", I used a shabby green embossing enamel.

For this layout I used the following chippies:

Stars [M00265]
Checkerboard clumps [M00584]
Swirly Star Border [DB0110]
You rock my world [W00402]


That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and it helped inspire you to create great stuff! I'll be back in a few weeks with more ideas to share with you! Cheers!

For this layout, I was inspired by the 13arts challenge #84
And I used some papers from the Under the stars collection.

"Live Laugh Love" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Last week-end was pretty exciting for me as I was celebrating my birthday with a great bunch of friends and my family! To kick off the celebrations early, I decided that I would indulge a bit and prepare a layout featuring my own face juuuust before I get older again!

I'm pretty happy about the result, especially with the chipboards on which I tried a few new techniques.

"Live Laugh Love"




I hand-applied wax on the "Flourish Adornment Set 6" chipboard and inked the borders with black ink.


For the "Frame Celia's Flourish", I applied black paint, waited for it to dry, then applied rose-gold paint. I applied pink embossing ink on top and finally inked the border in black.


On the "Dianne's doily set", I applied white-pink embossing enamel. For the title, "Live Laugh Love", I used bronze embossing enamel.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:
Frame Celia's Flourish [FR0048]
Flourish Adorment Set 6 [PA0048]
Dianne's Doily Set [M00586]
Live Laugh Love [W00223]


That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some inspiration for your own creations! I'll be back soon with more ideas to share with you guys!

"Summer" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty fans!

The cold weather is starting to set in here in Quebec, where the tree leaves are starting to fall and we've already had the first night where it actually froze outside! I'm already missing the summer gone only a few weeks ago, so a layout with some summer memories is the perfect thing to cheer me up!

"Summer"



For the "Flourish Adornment Set 7", I used red embossing ink and applied black ink on the borders.


On the "Ella's border", I used charcoal metallic paint, slightly diluted with water.


On the "Decorative Doily" behind the picture, I applied irridescent rose-gold paint and inked the borders in black. For the title, "line words summer", I cut the chipboard to only use the word "summer" and then applied some tea colored ink.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

Ella's Border [db0105]
Line Words -Summer Borders [db0091]
Decorative Doily [m00818]
Flourish Adornment Set 7 [pa0050]


That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some inspiration for your own creations! I'll be back soon as we venture through the very colorful fall season here in Quebec.

Love is in the air
for 2crafty

 Hello 2Crafty fans!
A few days ago my husband and I took one rare break from the kids to go see a show together. It had been like what seemed an eternity since we last took the time to go out by ourselves! We had an amazing time and took a bunch of pictures. 
The layout I'm presenting today really capture that happy fun mood we were in that night. I really like the result and I've prepared a video to show how I worked with the products.

"Love is in the air"


You can click on the video and enjoy how I created this layout.





On the "Aztec Feathers", I applied a diluted coat of blue-purple paint and then applied some purple metallic embossing ink on top.


For the "Frame Botanical", I used pearl colored paint and a transparent glaze to sprinkle microbeads on top. Then I inked the border with black ink.

On the title, "Love is in the air", I applied 2 coats of midnight gold embossing powder.
This layout uses the following 2Crafty chipboards:

"Day at the beach" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty friends!

Summer time has officially come to a close here with my kids going back to school after two months of fun and amazing memories! They're happy to see all their friends again but they say they already miss the beach and can't wait to go back next year. We've been going for 4 straight years now and they enjoy it even more every year.

The layout I'm sharing today show them with the same pose taken on each of these four years. We made it so they wore the same swimsuit the first two years, but they've been growing too fast for us to repeat that after. 

"Day at the beach"



On the "Palm Leaves Set", I applied a green embossing ink and then applied green-gold wax on top.


For the "Flower set 1", I inked with teal ink and then used a blue embossing ink on top.


On the "Fish Net Bits", I used teal wax applied with a small brush.


For the title, "Day at the Beach", I used a blue-white-gold embossing enamel.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:
Palm Leaves set [M00739]
Fishing net bits [M00657]
Day at the beach [W00423]
Flower set 1 [M00817]


That is all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this and that it will give you some inspiration for your creations! And if your kids are going back to school, I wish you and them to have a good time! I'll be back soon with more ideas to share.

Today I'd like to share a layout that fits this mood, featuring my husband eating his favorite candy, sour watermelon slices, wearing his watermelon slice shirt! I prepared a layout with fresh, bright colors to go with the watermelon theme, choosing a palette that I don't often pick for my hubby.

"Happiness is this"



On the "Mini Tags", I applied pink embossing ink and traced the contour with black ink. For the "Stars", I applied jade-green shimmering paint.


For the "Mini Branches", I used two coats of peach embossing powder infused with mini sequins and traced the contour with black ink.


On the "Star Bubble Set", I applied two coats of yellow embossing ink.


For the title, "Happiness is this", I simply applied black paint.

 The following 2Crafty chipboards have been used in this layout:
Star Bubble Set [M00666]

"This is my Happy Face" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty fans!

I'm back from a nice summer vacation family trip on the beaches of the US east coast and I'm in a awesome mood! I've had time to relax, recharge, enjoy great food, play play play in the sand and the water and overall spend real good time with my kids and husband! My inspiration levels are back to their peaks and I'm eager to show you what I brewed not long after being back home! 

"This is my Happy Face"



For the "Leafy Shrubs Set 2", I used a mint-green shimering gold wax paste.


On the "Aztec Arrows Set 1", I applied a pink embossing ink very roughly so we can still see the original chipboard texture through. On the "6" Circle Revolution Frames", I applied a honey colored ink and dabbed a yellow embossing ink on top of it. 


For the title, "This is my Happy Face", I used two coats of metalised jade embossing powder.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboards in this layout:
6" Circle Revolution Frames [660030]
Leafy Shrubs Set 2 [m00494]
Aztec Arrows Set 1 [m00806]
This is my Happy face [w00430]


That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this creation as much as I had fun making it! I'll be back soon with even more ideas to share with you. Cheers!
