Happiness Is This - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone!  It's that time of the month when I can share my projects designed for 2Crafty Chipboard.

Since it is Spring here and some of the bushes and flowers are out, I wanted to create a colorful 
layout.  I used a picture of my friend's daughter from a few years back.  Thought the picture was the perfect fit for the title. I applied some roses with a stencil to the background and some pink mist.

On both sides of the photo I used the Flourish Adornment Set 3. I normally like to emboss the chipboard pieces on my layouts, but used a different technique for this layout.  I covered them with gesso and then colored them with a light green mousse and a sprinkling of green glitter.  I cut apart the smaller frame from the Fine Stem Frames set, covered it with gesso and them applied some pink peony mousse and placed the pieces among the flowers.

Love the dainty title.  I covered it with gesso and applied pink peony mousse.

Hi everyone!  Sharing a layout today created for Picture This Challenges, 
featuring lots of 2Crafty Chipboard.

I embossed the Climbing Rose Bush chipboard with a mushroom powder and cut it into a few pieces and placed it on both side of the picture.

I used a piece from the Lacey Border Set which I cut into four pieces and embossed  with a mixture of Mushroom and Pink embossing powders and placed the pieces around the picture.

Here you can see more of the Climbing Rose Bush chipboard.

Hi everyone!  I've got a layout to share that I created with fabulous 
chipboard by 2Crafty Chipboard today.

 I made this layout  for a special friend of mine and based it off the current challenge over at More Than Words March Challenge, Beautiful & Butterfly.  To me, my friend and her husband are a beautiful couple, full of love for each other, family and friends.

I love the mixture of embossing powders I used on the Foliage Cluster and Frame Celia's, a mixture of black and bright blue.

Tucked beneath the flowers I used a piece from the Leafy Shrub Set 2, embossed with a couple shades of green.

I kept the title simple, applying some pink ink. It is part of the Mini Word Set 2.

Love You - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone!  Back to share another layout created for 2Crafty Chipboard and the February Challenge at Words and Paintery.

 Lots of flowers, butterflies, chipboard and layers!  I was drawn to the February Challenge at Words and Paintery. Love the color palette.

Lots of 2Crafty Chipboard used.  Frame Yvette's was embossed with oatmeal. 

The Flourish Adornment 2 was embossed with oatmeal also.  I cut it into 2 pieces.

A Moment Captured - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone!  It's that time of the month when I get to share my layouts created for 2Crafty Chipboard.

I love the outdoors and two of my favorite things are butterflies and flowers.  I found this beautiful butterfly on Pinterest and was drawn to the colors.   I applied some misting, inking and random stamping to the background paper.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Addy's Butterflies 
Heidi's Vines
A Moment Captured

I applied brown and melon embossing powder to the Heidi's Vines and added some coral microbeads.

The Addy's Butterfly was embossed with a mixture of brown and antique taupe powders.

I used the same mixture of brown and antique taupe embossing powders on the title.

I'll be back in a couple of days to share another layout.
Thanks for stopping by!

Picture Perfect

Hi everyone!  Hope you've been enjoying the weekend.  I know I have!  I just completed a layout I made for a couple of challenges.  It's been awhile since I've participated in any and there were a couple that caught my eye, the Mixed Media &Texture Challenge at Picture This Challenges and the January Challenge at Words & Paintery
I used papers by Blue Fern Studios, lots of flowers from my stash and 2Crafty Chipboard

Here's a little info on the challenges:
Create a project and incorporate mixed media and textures. I did a lot of stamping on my background paper, along with some inking, misting, paint splattering as well as some stenciling.  

Love the color scheme for the January Challenge at Words & Paintery. I also took to heart the written part of the challenge.  I remember years ago when my marriage was falling apart I was told by someone that you stick with it, even if you aren't happy.  That's the way it should be.  Nevertheless my marriage did not last.  When I saw the picture I used on Pinterest it made me think of the couple in the picture.  Obviously in their golden years and wondering what obstacles they faced in life and what made them stay in it for the haul.

Here are a few closeups:

That's it for today.

Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share my second DT project for 2Crafty Chipboard.  
I love this photo of a dear friend's daughter.  She has such a sweet smile. 
 I used various papers from The Bo Bunny collection Winter Wishes along with some Prima flowers
and of course 2Crafty Chipboard!  I did some light misting and inking on the background paper and added some masking using a snowflake stencil.

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.
