2Crafty December Design Team Post

Merry Christmas from Janice

Hello Everyone!

Well it isn't long now 'til Christmas.

I have 3 Christmas layouts to share with you today.
Christmas Time

2Crafty Chipboard Products:
Christmas Time
Mini Reindeer
Present Set
Holly Leaves
Circle Revolution Frame
Chunky Heart

I just adore these gorgeous Mini Reindeer.
 They are  the perfect little embellishment  to add to your creations.
 I have included 2 on this page and both of them have been embossed with Zing Opaque White embossing powder and sat amidst the clusters.
At the top of this cluster I have added a Chunky Heart which has been embossed also.
You can also see some of the layered Holly Leaves.

Christmas says Holly Leaves and I just loved these Chippie leaves.
Each pack contains 8 leaves of varying sizes. With the varying sizes it makes it so easy to layer the leaves and add them to your layouts to add some dimension.
Each leaf was inked with Versa Colour Olive Ink, then randomly stamped with a Kaisercraft Stamp using Bazzil Ink and the edges were inked with Versa Colour Green Ink.

This is such a gorgeous piece . I love the Font  of this Christmas Time  title.
This piece was simply inked with Versa Colour Cardinal Ink and added to the top of another gorgeous piece the Circle Revolution Frame which was coloured the same way.
Do you need a title for your layout?
2Crafty have an extensive list of Words and Wordlets for you to choose from.

Another close up of the Mini Reindeer. Isn't he cute!

I just loved this little  Chippie Present Set.
I removed the centres from the  parcels with a sharp kraft knife and adhered paper to the back of each square. Then I embossed the outside edges and the bow with Zing Opaque White embossing powder just to add a bit of dimension and shine. To decorate it some more I wrapped each one with some red and white twine and sat it amongst  some coloured gauze, blooms, holly leaves and gold thread.
The Presents word was coloured with Versa Colour Gold Ink

2Crafty Products ;
ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars - Stars
merry christmas border
Word Circle Set 
Chunky Heart

As soon as I saw this gorgeous piece of paper I knew I had the perfect
 2Crafty chippie pieces to add to it.
These ATC Tiny Stars were just perfect.
 Each star was given a light coat of gesso then coloured with Versa Colour Gold and
 Silver Ink and stuck from largest to smallest down the page and around the photo.

To this cluster I added a Chunky Heart and a Circle Word-Believe.
The Heart was coloured with Gold Ink.
I snipped Believe from the centre of the circle, coloured it with Red and Gold inks and 
sat it amidst the flowers and thread. The circle frame I inked silver and tucked it into the cluster.

Another Gorgeous merry christmas title by 2Crafty.
This is a border piece and actually has 2 merry Christmas words joined, but I snipped them apart and only used one. The chippie is so versatile. This piece was simply inked with Cardinal Ink.
The 2Crafty Chipboard is so easy to use and add to your creations.
tis the season

2Crafty Products;
Card Word Circle Set - Christmas
 Fir Xmas Tree
Mini Reindeer

Christmas is a favourite time of the year for me. I love everything Christmas.
We especially love decorating our tree and having it on show.
 So when I saw the fabulous 2Crafty Christmas Tree  I knew I had to have it.
I coated it with gesso first then added several layers of Gold ink.
 I then threaded different size bell onto a piece of gold thread and wrapped it around the tree.
I added a  Gold Glittery Star to the top of the tree.
Another of my favourite pieces the Mini Reindeer which was
coloured with Viva Inka Gold adorns my tree.

 Here I have inked this star with silver ink and added a gold and silver 
glitter sticker to the top and then tucked it into the cluster.

Another Star from the pack. Simply inked silver and decorated with a 
glitter sticker adhered with a pop up dot to add dimension.

tis the season Circle Word I have used as a title for my layout and simply tucked it in to this cluster.
tis the season is inked with Cardinal Ink and the circle elements are inked gold.
