(VIDEO TUTORIAL): 'Treasure' Scrapbooking Layout using 2crafty chipboard

Hello friends,

Ive a short & sweet post to share today with a Video Tutorial for this scrapbook page.

The colour palette for the page was directed by the photograph. I was inspired to use this photograph when I saw this moodboard on Mixed Media Place.

Look at the photograph in the centre. Is it sunrise or sunset? Don't know, yet its beautiful and the other photographs convey a fuzzy beautiful feeling. I thought back about the time when there was no sense of time - day / night …. you guessed right - with a new baby in hand we were all living by the babys' clock not day and night. Lol. Yet, there was this happy feeling.

I love to include symbols that remind me of details around the time the photograph was taken - like the blue tissue and star sequins that were part of a baby gift many years ago. 

My favourite cluster is the on the top right - love the patterns and texture.

Here is the link to the Video tutorial:

Thank you for visiting today.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.

Happy creating,

'Timeless' Scrapbooking Layout with 2crafty Chipboard

Hello friends,

I have been hoarding these gorgeous Romance Novel Prima Marketing papers for ages. So, finally pulled them out this month and decided to make a layout alongwith my favourite  Lindy Stamp Gang products. Its spring here in Australia, so I definitely felt like pinks & flowers.

Ive fussy cut flowers from Romance Novel pattern papers and collaged it on the background pattern paper before using texture paste and my favourite Lindy Stamp Gang in Shabby Turbine Teal Magicals & Cotton Candy Pink Shimmer Spray. Ive used Cotton Candy pink spray to also colour the chipboard pieces.
  Can you see the gold foil on the chipboard flowers? I love the shine it adds to the layout. To make this layout extra special, the blue ribbon I've strung through the papers behind the photograph were used to decorate my babys' bassinet.
 Here is another close up.

Mixed Media Cards - 2crafty chipboard & Cocoa Vanilla

Mixed Media Cards

Hello friends,
This month, for my second project on the 2crafty chipboard blog, I have 2 cards to share.
 They are non-standard cards approx. 6"x6" requested in this size in order to write a letter inside instead of a message. Scroll down to see the moodboard at Mixed Media & Art which was the inspiration for these cards.

I started by cutting out some circles from Cocoa Vanilla pattern paper and coated them with white gesso. While that was drying, I coated all the 2crafty chipboard pieces with white gesso as well - a few gears from Steampunk Small & Medium, a small panel cut off from the Square Collage Panel and one piece from the Vintage Hot Air Balloon Set. I did NOT apply any gesso on the tile 2crafty chipboard piece 'You make me Happy'

To get an even coat of colour on the chipboard pieces, Ive directly applied stamp pads on the chipboard 
 Here is the second card. 
Can you see how the Hot Air Balloon has a bright orange whereas the 'You make me happy' chipboard in the previous card looks darker and more vintage looking. That's because I didn't apply any gesso on the 'You make me happy' chipboard piece. Gesso makes colour look brighter on chipboard.

Thank you for visiting us today.
Wishing you all a very happy & creative week ahead.

From the moodboard below, I used the sketch to make circle cards and the colours of blue & yellow from the tubs of paint.

(VIDEO TUTORIAL): 'Vintage' Scrapbook Layout using 2crafty chipboard & 7Dots Studio

'You are not old, your Vintage'

You can find the video tutorial for this page here.

This month, my scrapbook layout is inspired by two of my favourite blogs - 

So, almost literally as described on the 7dots studio blog, on a cozy warm, winter afternoon, I made time for myself to reflect on my journey these last few years. To document this, I chose the nostalgic 'Thoughts Keeper' collection.
The memories around the time this photograph was taken feel like just yesterday, so close, so fresh and crystal clear. But when I reflect on it, I've grown so much as a person since then. So much has changed, yet so much still remains. 

I decided to include messages and reminders to myself through symbolism - love for music through collaged music notes from Tim Holtz tissue, my daily ritual of drawing kolams (traditional indian mandala type designs) using a Kaisercraft stencil on the background, delicate lace and dainty chipboard reminds me of conversations I had with my grand mother & great grandmother about life, roses to remind me that even the most pretty things come with thorns and finally a word sticker with the words rise & shine - its never too late to try something new, one is never too late old to rise above our challenges and inspire those around.

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy creating,

'Cherish' scrapbooking layout using Pion Design & 2crafty chipboard

Hello friends,

My layout today was created last month for the CSI Case File: 255 which was sponsored by 2crafty chipboard. Purple is hardly my go to colour, but I decided to try something different and for this used the absolutely stunning Pion Design pattern paper collection - Where the roses grow. 

I've layered many different chipboard pieces in between layers of pattern paper.  All the chipboard pieces were first coated with white gesso and then painted over with Colourarte Twinkling H2Os & Vivid Ultra Metallics. All supplies have been listed at the end of this post.

For the mini cluster on the left, half a piece of the Formal Flourish 3 has been tucked underneath the light woodgrain paper. Over it is a cluster of flowers along with a piece of Leafy Twig Branches. There are also many fussy cut elements amongst the embellishments.

This close-up reminds me of how far Ive come with using flowers on my layout. There was a time when I struggled to even find place for one & this layout has 10!!!

Thank you for stopping by & leaving me some love. 

Happy crafting,
