Part 3 of my March DT work at 2Crafty

Hello Everyone!
Back  today with my 3rd layout for my March Design Team work at

A vintage layout I created for the Scrap 365-4 over at CSI.
Mum and Dad didn't have many photos taken on their wedding day, so I treasure
 this memory captured of them on their special day.

The beautiful 2Crafty chippie pieces I have used here are
"today loopy font"
"Doily Border"
"Flourish Adornmentx2"

Case File No S365-4

 I joined two of the "Flourish Adornment" pieces together to form a heart.
I randomly inked each piece with Pinecone Ink.

 The heart shape around their Hands.

 I added  some misted gauze, cotton,leaves and blooms to the "Flourish Adornment" piece.

 A piece of the "Doily Border" inked with Pinecone ink. 

 Another gorgeous loopy font word-"today", covered with texture paste and inked.
Another little  piece of the "Doily Border", inked and cut to  fit..

Part 2 of my March DT work at 2Crafty

Hello All!
Today I am sharing part 2 of my March Design Team work at


I loved this grungy look Kaisercraft paper.
I had  fun creating this page, adding lots of inks and mists to alter the chippie pieces.

"you loopy font"

 I love these loopy font words that 2Crafty have. Just perfect for your page title.
"you"- I inked this with cyan versa colour ink.
I used the "negative piece" from the "Gears" and coloured it the same way as
 the "Gears" and used it as a mat under my photo.

 The "Gears" and "2013" date were all covered with a light coat of gesso, then covered
 with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Mr Huey's Mists and Tattered Angels Glimmermists
 and dried with a heat gun.
I inked up a grungy Kaisercraft stamp with Black ink and stamped randomly over all the pieces.

 The "Gears", showing all the different colours and patterns.

Thank you for stopping by.
I hope I have inspired you to get some 2Crafty Chipboard on your next layout.

I will be back tomorrow with my 3rd, 2Crafty post.
Have a great day!

My Design Team post is up at 2Crafty today

 Hello Everyone!
My 2Crafty Design Team post it up today.
Pop over to the blog to see more
This is the first of my three layouts.


Janice here with you today to share my latest projects
 all featuring some gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.
The best thing about chipboard is its versatility.
My shares today include a  pretty girls page, a grungy boys page and a vintage page.

 I started with some beautiful Pink Paislee paper and added lots of  gorgeous
 2Crafty chippie.
"Tiny Leaf Stems"
"Mixed Buttons"
"Friendship mimi words-Happy"
"Doily Border"
"Plain Triangles"
"ATC Butterflies"

I covered each "Plain Triangle" with patterned paper, and then using embroidery thread
I joined them all together and formed the hexagon shape.

 I added texture paste to the "Tiny Leaf Stems"
 with my fingertips,  once dry I coloured them with inks.

The  "Mixed Button" was covered the same way and then sewn with  
embroidery thread leaving lots of long wispy threads.

Lots and lots of layers. I have used pop up dots to add dimension.

Two more of the "Plain Triangles" covered in patterned paper
and sewn together with embroidery thread.

This formed the base for my title  "Happy" from the "Friendship mini Words".
"Happy" was coated in texture paste and coloured with Cinnamon versa colour ink.

 Don't ever discard any of your chippie off cuts,
this little left over "Doily Border" piece was just perfect, and fitted in here so well.
It was covered with texture paste and coloured with Cinnamon versa colour ink.

These little "ATC Butterflies" are just Gorgeous. I have added 3 to my page,
 all have been covered with texture paste and inked with different coloured inks.
 I will be back tomorrow to share my next layout
Thanks for stopping by!
I am feeling blessed with all the wonderful comment you are leaving for me.
Thank you to each one of you...
I love reading what you all have to say and you always inspire me to keep creating.
 If you leave me some love I will return the favour and pop into your blog and say hello.
Have a fabulous day.
