September Layouts With Jaya Raghuvanshi

Hello 2Crafty chipboard Fans!

Today I have two layouts to share with you all. A bright,bold black page
 and a soft,ethereal page . Hope you like them both.

"Follow Your Heart"

My first page is this soft layout titled Follow your heart.
This is one of the newly released chippie titles and its absolutely gorgeous!
I love it :)
Some close ups-

I used distress ink to colour my Moroccan panel chipboard and the title chipboard.
 Next I doodled on them using white ink pen. I just couldn't resist using the doodling
 on the gorgeous font!!

The Ava's frame has been covered in white gesso and then coloured using watercolors.
 Once it was dry I applied glossy accents on it.

2Crafty Chipboards used-
Follow Your Heart
Moroccan Panel
Ava's Frame

My second page is this layout I created. This page is all about chipboards
and how to make them stand out on you page.

All the background on the page has been done with the chipboard itself.
Isn't that awesome ? I love how it turned out. :)

 Some close-ups-

 I used the Prima Art alchemy paints for my background and to colour my chipboards.
 I dissembled the Circle Lace Panel chipboard panel and Flower doily chipboard to
 pieces to form my background.

 Next I painted on the chipboard pieces in chosen colours and stamped on the background.
 Once I was satisfied with the background I adhered the pieces o my page.

September Inspiration By Lisa Griffith

Hello 2 Crafty Chipboard fans!

Lisa here today with two layouts to share with you.


I found this beautiful vintage photograph on Pinterest and I was captivated by the
young man's expression - stoic, but still somehow tender. I loved the new chipboard
 piece 'Fine Stem Frames' and I thought it would make a beautiful frame around my photo.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Vintage Keys'
'Steampunk Gears Medium'
'Steampunk Gears Small'
'Fine Stem Frames'

I first painted all my chipboard pieces with black acrylic paint and then roughly
heat embossed them with a chunky old gold embossing powder to give them a
 time worn metallic look.

My second layout is a page inspired by this vintage photograph of my mum as a flower girl at 
her Aunt's wedding.


Here I kept the chippies clean and simple with just some white acrylic paint.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Corner Thick Vine'
'Fine Leafy Bush'

See you soon, thanks for looking.

September Layouts
By Sandra Bernard


Hi!! Sandra here today to share two layouts for 2Crafty. 
I love to play with all the different chippies  to create different looks. 

2Crafty Chipboards I used: 
6'' Circle Revolution Frames
Lacey border set 1
Skeleton leaves
Word circles set 2 as title

Most of my chipboards on my layout today have been heat embossed.

I love to cut some chippies to create a new combination.

Here's a plan of my mix.

and I made a video just for you...



For my second layout, I played with my pan pastels to create the same color as my picture. 
2Crafty have so many chipboards to help us achieve just the look we are after.

2crafty chipboard I used: 
Fishing net bits
mini travel words set 2

I put some splashes of gesso and paint to get some colors on my chipboards.

I also used some mini pearls to add some texture.

I embossed the title and then I added some yellow paint. 

Thanks and have a good day !!

September Inspiration From Tiffany Solorio

Hello, Tiffany here to share my two layouts for September.

 I kept them pretty simple as I am trying to make more layouts that
 I can put in my scrapbook albums. 

The first layout  I painted the chipboard with black gesso. I have some peeking out from
the layers of paper. I also used part of a circle chipboard that I painted with black gesso.
 The Together title I painted with white gesso. 

Close ups showing the title and the 6" Circle Revolution Frames
and the cut up pieces of Circle Lace Panel.

2 Crafty chipboard used :
Together Loopy Font
Circle Lace Panel 
6" Circle Revolution Frames

"You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey"
This second layout I kept simple again. I just embossed the chipboard with
 white embossing powder. I cut up the quote so I could fit it how I wanted it. 

2Crafty has a huge range of titles, here is the one I have chosen for this layout,
as well as the gorgeous fine and dainty Squiggly Heart Cluster.

The Circle Dot Frames is perfect for Framing that special thing on your photos.
