Discover - VIDEO TUTORIAL and Layout
By Emma Zappone

Hello all you awesome 2Crafty people!! 
Today I have a video share to show you. But first my layout....

I just fell in love with this image, it’s one I found on Pinterest. 

And these are chipboard pieces I used for this layout...

And I thought how perfect the dandelion chippy was for this page. 

Lots of soft colours used on my base and then used the same colours
 on my chippy which I also embossed on the dandelions. 

The mini branches I left with only the ink painted on them. 
You can see how I do all this in my video. 

The ‘discover’ title I coated in black ink so that it sort of became a part of the photo. 

You can see it all come together here....


Thanks so much for watching, and I look forward to seeing you all next month. 
Till then, Em xx

#Capture by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty Fans,

It is now the moment to reveal my second May inspiration.
At the end of this blog post, you'll find a video tutorial that shows how
I did my layout. I really like the mischievous look my son sometimes make and
 I was able to capture it on photo for the first time.

 Thus came the inspiration for my "Capture" layout.

This shot is a highlight of the left cluster of chipboard that includes "Triangle Clusters",
 "Parisian Border" and, in dark brown, the chipboard support that was holding the 
"Messy square frame" chipboard (let's not waste perfectly good material!).

For the "Messy square frame" chipboard support, I used 
brown embossing ink and then applied black ink on top.

For the "Triangle Clusters", I used red-gold embossing powder
 and then inked it with a black ink.

For the "Mini #Word Set 2", I used midnight-brown embossing powder.

For the "Parisian Border", I inked them with a brown ink and then I applied black ink.

For this layout, I used the following awesome
 2Crafty chipboard:

Mini #word set 2
Parisian Border
Corner Lorena
Triangle Cluster
Messy Square Frames

Here's the video showing how I built that layout:

Thanks for joining me for this layout, I hope this gave you new ideas!
 I look forward to hear from you guys! 
See you next month for more inspirations!

"Best Day Ever"
Layout By Bec Genet

Hi everyone.
 It's Bec here today to share this soft girly layout with you. 

The 2Crafty Chipboard used:
Flourish Clock Face
Best Day Ever Title
Spring Flower Bunches
Palm Leaves

To alter the chipboard I started by embossing the Flourish Clock Face with white
 embossing power.

I covered both the Best Day Ever title and the Spring Flower Bunches in white gesso.
 I then coloured the Spring Flower Bunches with a red watercolour. I like that 
watercolours can give both the dark and light tones for a colour.

I used just a very light coat of the Prima Metallique Paint in Vintage Rose on the 
 Best Day Ever Title to give it a very faint pink colour.

On the Palm Leaves I used a mix of the Prima Paints in Unicorns Hair and
 Opal Blue Gold for a shiny finish.

I embellished my layout with die cut doilies, resin frames, lace and flowers

Thanks for visiting

'Treasure' Scrapbook Layout with Kripa Koushik

Hello crafty friends,

My second layout this month is a travel layout that has been built around the Vintage Hot Air Balloon piece.

As the top of the layout is pretty busy, I kept the bottom half of the layout simple with a cluster of chipboard and pattern paper layers. The first layer is a frame from the Polaroid Assorted Frame Set, followed by several layers of pattern paper and then a Film Strip followed by more pattern paper and the photograph. The title piece is from the Mini Word Set 1. It has been left white after several gesso layers.

As always, the chipboard pieces were first treated with white gesso. Once dry, Ive used a combination of sprays and inks to colour them.

The colours for this layout were inspired by the moodboard at Lindy's Stamp Gang Challenge for May.

Thank you for visiting us today.

- Vintage Hot Air Balloon

Soft Box and Card by Elena Martynova

 Hi lovelies! Elena here with a little inspiration for you!

This set of boxes and cards I made as a gift to my mother.
 Even though I have been scrapbooking for 5 years, I do something
 for my Mother very rarely.
I do not know why :)))

  I really had fun using the Frame Yvette's to create a neat design for this box.

 I also added a lovely butterfly and put it on a chiffon flower.
It turned out very gently and gracefully!

 I attached the second butterfly on the other side of the frame.

That's what my box looks like inside. 

In the card I wrote for my Mother a few warm words :))) 
I think it would be nice to reread. Because we so rarely tell our mothers that we love them!


Openwork heart as a symbol of my great love for my Mother.

For this project, I used the following awesome 2Crafty Chipboard:

OK, that is all from me today!!! Thanks so much for stopping by, 
I hope you will take the time to follow the blog,
