My 2Crafty Design Team December Post part 2

.Wishing you and your Family a Merry Christmas
I have created 2 cards for my 2nd project.
I enjoy making cards for Family and Friends.

"Peace"   & "Noel"

I started with white cardstock for the base, then built up the layers one by one.
 I placed a mask down and inked in random spots,
added pieces of embroidery thread and then stuck down strips of torn paper and
 pieces of washi tape. I primed the chippie with gesso, let it dry and inked it with
 Versa Colour Gold ink.
 I added gold stickles to the little star.
 I then cut a mat for the  tree, stuck the chippie to the mat and then
 stuck it on top of the layers.
Peace was painted white and glued down.
2Crafty Chipboard Pieces I have used:
I started with white cardstock, place it into an embossing mat and run it through my Cuttlebug..
I placed a mask down and inked random spots and added some thread.
 I cut a mat for the tree, glued  the chippie to the mat, and stuck it to the card.
Noel was primed with gesso and inked with Gold ink.
2Crafty Chipboard Pieces I have used:
My last  layout is one you may have already seen.
I am Guest Designing over at Orange Paperie & Co during December.
This months challenge is a Colour Challenge
Gold, Silver and White.
I chose to scrap about one of my favourite times of the year.
"Merry Christmas"

 I have used some gorgeous 2Crafty Christmas Chippie pieces,
  torn paper strips, stencil, ink, thread and vellum to build layers on this layout.

 The Holly Tree, was primed with gesso, let dry and inked with Versa
 colour Gold Ink.  I then wrapped gold and silver stranded thread around the
tree like  tinsel and added some Pearls. 

Merry Christmas is covered in Ranger Gold Ice Stickles.
This adds a nice glittery Christmas feel to my layout.

How cute is this little Prancing Reindeer.
He is covered with Gold Ink.

Joy is covered with Ranger Gold Ice Stickles.
These little words are perfect to place on your layouts.


Thanks for stopping by the 2Crafty blog today and for looking at my projects.
I hope you have been inspired to create a Christmas layout during December.

My 2Crafty Design Team December post

This is the 1st of my 3 Design Team projects over on the 2Crafty blog.
Merry Christmas Wishes to you and your Family
 Hello Everyone :)
Janice here today.
Its December and its almost Christmas.
Its the perfect time to create using the gorgeous 2Crafty
 Christmas Chipboard pieces.
My 1st Layout

To make this parcel I used a thick piece of cardboard and covered it with paper.
 Using the same paper I cut 2 different size triangles and stuck them across the bottom.
 I then wrapped the whole piece with embroidery thread. I added this gorgeous chippie
 piece to adorn it and also added 3 chippie tags.

 I love this gorgeous Heart Charm chippie piece.
 My parcels are always wrapped an given with lots of love,
 so I thought this was perfect to add to my gift.
 I primed it with gesso, let it dry, then Inked it with Gold Versa Colour ink.

 Gifts always need a To and From tag.
I have used washi tape to cover 2 of the tags
 and I added a  Jingle Bells Rub On to cover the other tag

Seasons Greetings was primed with gesso and then inked with Gold ink.

Thanks for stopping by.
I will have more to share tomorrow.

Guest Designing at Orange Paperie & Co

I am very Excited and Happy to be Guest Designing on this Fabulous little blog.
This is what Kim wrote on the Orange Paperie & Co blog.
Hello all and welcome to December
 Firstly I want to tell you about our DECEMBER CHALLENGE
I thought it would be nice to have a little colour challenge.
Now it doesn't have to be a Christmas layout as such but most of us have done Christmas ones.
Now onto our Guest Designer for this merry month.
I would like to introduce you to the very talented
Janice Nicholls

 Hi there, I’m Janice Nicholls and I live in a small country town in Cummins, South Australia.
I started scrapbooking in 2006 and my 2 beautiful children and family all feature in my work. My style is ever changing. At the moment I love double photos, grouped and layered clusters and white space.
I also like to add layers to my background using stencils, gesso, mists and inks.
I scrap mostly 12 x 12 layouts. I enjoy trying new techniques, not always successful, but it is fun trying.
I have been very fortunate to have been on some fabulous Design Teams and have had my work published in magazines.
I am honoured and thrilled to be Guest Designing here at Orange Paperie & Co for December.
 A big Thank You to the very talented Kim Ewins for inviting me.
Kim’s theme for this month is Gold, Silver and White and being December I chose to scrap about one of my favourite times of the year…Christmas.
Here is what I have created.

I hope I have inspired you to join in the fun here at Orange Paperie for December. Remember to link up your layout and share it with us…we would love to see what you create.

A truly GORGEOUS layout Janice
I know you have inspired me!!!!
A HUGE THANKS to Janice for being our DECEMBER guest designer.

I have use lots of strips of patterned papers , some vellum,
stranded thread, stencils, Prima Flowers, D-Lish elements
and some Gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.
The girls on this little blog are all super talented and work really hard.
Pop over to the blog and check out what they have created,
