Life Documented for 2 Craft Chipboards

Hi lovelies,

Most of my layouts are about my kids and documenting our everyday life.
But once in a while I like to create a layout about our doggie, Ernest.
He holds a special place in our family and in our hearts!

Isn't he the cutest with his tie and his serious look!
A rare quiet moment that only happens when he is watching his "friend" aka the cat!!! 

"Life Documented"

"Life Documented" title was embossed with teal powder. 

"Mini Flourish Bits" were embossed with dark bronze powder and highlighted with white gesso.

"Frame Yvette's" was first embossed with golden green powder, then covered with bronze wax
and finally highlighted with white gesso.

Until next time, be happy and be creative!

Happiness is this for 2Crafty Chipboards

Hello 2Crafty lovers!
How I cherish those special moments when my kids play along when I take pictures.
The photo in the layout I'm showing you today is part of a special photoshoot
 we did a few summers ago in a beautiful park.

"Happiness is this"

Happiness is this title was basecoated with a layer of white gesso 
then lightly covered with green Gelatos.
It was also distressed with sandpaper. Gold wax touches were added here and there.

11 Fine Floral Frame Set was cut into several pieces.
The two largest parts were left natural and tucked under the papers
in the upper and lower opposite corners.

Tiny Leaf Stems were also basecoated with white gesso, 
then lightly covered with green Gelatos.
Finally, a dark tone of green Gelatos was applied on the leaves to create a greater contrast.

The smallest pieces of 11 Fine Floral Frame Set were placed under the picture
and white gesso was applied as a final touches.

and distressed with touches of white gesso.

Clock Face Disks were basecoated with black gesso and embellished with mystic blue wax.
Some parts were sanded to recreate a worn effect.
White gesso was also added here and there.

and distressed with white gesso.

Love ya to bits pour 2Crafty Chipboards avec vidéo


I am so happy to be on the blog today to show you a summer layout
 I made using 2Crafty Chipboards.

Beach is one of my favorites themes to scrapbook. 
The color palette is inspirational and there are so many embellishments we can use with it
...and among the beautiful 2Crafty chippies!!!

You will find a process video at the end of this post. I hope you will enjoy it.

Love ya to bits title was first embossed with a light gold embossing powder and then embellished using dark bronze and vibrant copper waxes.

Leafy twig branches were cut into smaller pieces and tucked under the flowers. 
They were partly covered with dark bronze wax and then dry brushed with white gesso.

The same treatment was used for the lacey signpost chipboard –
dark bronze and vibrant copper waxes were used as a basecoat and white gesso as final touches.

Inspiration été pour Scrapbook Tendance

Bon matin!

Voilà déjà avril à notre porte. D'ici quelques temps, les belles journées seront enfin parmi nous.
Pour nous faire patienter encore un peu, je vous présente une page d'inspiration bord de mer pour Scrapbook Tendance.

J'ai aussi utilisé de vrais coquillages que j'ai disposé à quelques endroits autour de ma photo.
J'ai aussi utilisé une découpe exclusive à la boutique ainsi que du rafia.

Hi there,

I'm here today to show you my latest 2Crafty Chipboard layout.

I started by randomly applying a light coat of mint wax over the Moroccan panel.
Once dried, I played with two tones of green Gelatos to create a verdigris look
 and then added a vintage gold coat of wax on top of it to replicate an antique finish.

I used a green-gold embossing powder over the title.

I dry brushed white gesso over the viney circle frame and a
few touches of white gold wax here and there.

I painted the lock green using Gelatos and highlighted it with gold wax and white gesso.
I used the following products:
Frame Viney Circles
This Boy
Keyholes and Locks
Moroccan Panel

In my part of the world, spring is just around the corner. And after a rough winter, I am definitely ready for warmer weathers, longer days and outdoor activities.
This layout is all about enjoying these outdoor activities that we are so happy
to practice again when spring finally arrives. Sometimes simple things are the best.

I started my layout by tearing off several pieces of paper and
placing them on top of each other using cardboard to create dimension.

I then placed some pieces of Fencing wire panel under some pieces of paper
and applied white gesso using a dry brush.

After applying a layer of white gesso onto the Picket Fence piece, I added a layer
of white crackling paste. When it was dry, I dried brush brown ink over it.

Fine and fancy butterflies were dry brushed using white gesso.
Follow your heart title was embossed twice. First in white and then in rose gold.

Until next time, I hope that my layout inspires you to create layout
using picture of your favorite outdoor activities.
