Beauty - 2Crafty Chipboard

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

I love this time of the year.  Usually the temps are on the cool side and the leaves are changing colors,  but so far we've had an unseasonably warm Autumn.  Thoughts of Autumn past spun around in my head and lead to me create this layout featuring a picture of my grandmother.  I was also inspired by the October Challenge at Words &  Paintery.  Love the deep rich colors of their challenge, the gold in particular as it reminds me of the changing leaves that come in Autumn.   I added several colors of distress stain to my background paper along with some stamping, micro beads and glass glitter.



I love the detailed Marianne's Butterfly.  I embossed it with some Nutmeg embossing powder and added paprika, twig  and gold micro beads.

Lots of warms Autumn colors.  The Corner Vine Leaves embossed with Sage embossing powder,  the Large Leafy Vine embossed dark brown and beneath them I used the Corner Lorena, embossed with an antique teal powder. 

Tucked under my photo I used the Large Leafy Vine, Corner Vine Leaves and Mini Flourish Bits, and my title is from the Mini Word Set 1.

Dream - The International Scrapbook Garden

Hi everyone!  I'm back  today sharing my second layout created from the 
Garden Kit, Sunkissed, by The International Scrapbook Garden.

I used a floral mask from my stash and added a few drops of the Lindy's Hisbiscus Rose Flat Fabio Spray to some modeling paste on the background.  I love the beautiful papers in the kit by Lemoncraft!

I added some of the Lindy's spray to some watered down white paint and added paint splatters to the background.  Flowers used are from the main kit and the Extra Blooms Kit.  

I did a lot of fussy cutting of flowers from some of the papers in the kit to add some layers behind the photo.

Here you can see more of the layering with the cut flowers, along with a butterfly and Dream badge from  the Embellishment Bonus Kit.  You can check out the full contents of the Sunkissed Garden kit here.

Always - The International Scrapbook Garden

Hi everyone!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It's more like summer here in Maryland, very humid and on the warm side.  Sure doesn't feel like October.  I've have some exciting news to share with you today.  There is a new kit club in town, The International Scrapbook Garden, which offers 3 different types of kits and lots of numerous add on kits.  All papers in the kits are from international paper companies. Some of them as we know are hard to get here in the US.  I'll be guest designing for them using their Garden Kit.  You can view all of the current Garden Kit, Sunkissed here.  It is packed with papers from Lemoncraft.

I've created a layout for a dear friend of mine.  The background paper  by Lemoncraft is part of the Bonus Paper Kit.   I love to fussy cut paper to add layers and dimension to my layout.  

Here's a closeup of some of the flowers in the Main kit and Extra Blooms Kit.  I used the Lindy's Spray and 13 Arts paint from the Mixed Media Bonus Kit to create splatters on the background.  I also used the 13 Arts paint to cover the chipboard title and flourishes on my layout.

Here you can see I've fussy cut some flowers and  added them to my layers.

More layering using the Embellishment Bonus Kit.

Love Is In The Air - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share my second July project for 2Crafty Chipboard.

I used papers from the Prima Love Clippings collection and added some masking and stamping to the background.

I used both of the Corner Annalise, one on each side of my picture.  Both were embossed with Antique Taupe embossing powder.

I embossed the Fine Leafy Bush with Verdant Embossing powder, then lightly inked the edges with a lighter green ink.  I cut the chipboard into pieces and placed it in several areas of my layout.

Here I've placed a piece from the Beaded Hanging Heart embossed with a mixture of Antique Taupe and Plum Embossing powders.  I inked a piece from the Lacey borders with a distressed ink and placed pieces randomly around my picture.

My title, Love is in the Air was treated the same as the Beaded Hanging Heart, embossed with a mixture of Antique Taupe and Plum embossing powders.

Explore - More Than Words July Challenge

Hi everyone!  Hope you are enjoying the weekend!  I've been doing my best to stay indoors.  It's been extremely hot and humid. I've got a layout to share that I created for the July Challenge at 


You  must incorporate the word explore along with arrows in your project.

I live in a rural area just outside of the city.  My house sits on 5 1/2 acres of land and it is normal to see lots of wildlife.  Deer, rabbits, foxes and the occasional coyote.  I was watching rabbits hop around the other day looking for food.  It made me wonder what is is like for a animal to explore their surroundings.  I came across the photo I used on Pinterest.  Thought the mouse was the cutest little thing.  Couldn't help but wonder what he/she was out and about for.

I found some old letter stickers in my stash along with some metal arrows.

I used several pieces of chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard to created a scene around the picture.  I embossed the Avery Vines, Mini Branches and Viney Frame Circles with various shades of green embossing powders.  I thought the Viney Frame Circle looked like a continuous line of arrows.

Added this additional title from 2Crafty Chipboard Arrow Word Set.  I applied some Prima Art Stones around the base and sides of the picture and added some brown and green microbeads.

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday ........ so ready for the weekend!!!  
I've got a layout to share with you today that I created for the July Challenge at Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo


The theme for the July Challenge is beauty.  I chose to scrap this picture I took a few years back of a bee on flower in my garden.  Love the beauty in all things nature.
I added lots of stamping and misting on the background paper and as always my favorite chipboard from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Here are a few closeups:
I embossed the Frame Lucy's Flourish with a mixture of Ebony, Fuchsia and Verdant
embossing powders.  The same was used on the Bubble Clumps.  The bottom left of the
 picture is a piece from the Oriental Flower Stem, embossed with Verdant embossing powder.
 I added some microbeads to the Bubble Clumps.


The title was embossed with a mixture of Ebony and Fuchsia embossing powders.
  Love the effect!

Tucked beneath the pink is a flower piece I cut from the Oriental Flower Stem,
which I embossed with Fuchsia embossing powder.

I'll be back in a few days to share another layout with you featuring chipboard from 2Crafty chipboard.

Thanks for stopping by!
