My 2Crafty Chipboard November DT Reveal
Part Two
"Christmas Cutie"

Hi friends, thanks for stopping by. Today I have another
Chrissy layout & naturally I have used lots & lots of gorgeous
I adore this pic of my Grandaughter Mia in her Santa hat. 
I took this photo last Sunday & I had it scrapped on Monday!!!

2Crafty Products Used ..
Christmas Cuties - Title
 Christmas Decorative Ornament Borders
Stars - Multi Pack
2014's Pack
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi  Pack

 I cut the word cuties down & made it just cutie.
All the chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso. Next up both the 
 title & the 2014 date were coloured up with Barn Door Distress Ink & when dry
 I added some Stickles for a sparkly finish. Shame the sparkle doesn't show up here.

This is the new "Christmas Ornament Decorative Border".
After firstly giving it a coat of gesso I  then coloured it using my Gelatos &
blended the colour with a little water & my finger. When dry I dabbed on
some pale pink Stickles which unfortunately doesn't show in the photos!!!

 The 2014 date was treated the same as the title.

All the stars where finished exactly the same as the border.

Well thats all for today,  I'll be back soon with some  more.

If you would like to keep up to date with what all the DT girls do at
2Crafty Chipboard, here are the links to both the blog & their facebook.
We would love you to follow us on both.

My 2Crafty Chipboard November DT Reveal
Part One
"Christmas Baby"

Hi friends, thanks for calling by. 
Today I have a Christmas layout  with a start to finish video
for my favourite chipboard company, 2Crafty Chipboard..
 I hope you will take the time to watch it, & maybe even
subscribe to my you tube channel while you are there so you don't miss anything.
  Click here to view VIDEO.......


Naturally I have used lots of gorgeous 2Crafty chippies, starting off with one of their
new titles, "Christmas Baby". So appropriate don't you think?

2Crafty Products Used..
Frame - Yvettes
 "Christmas Baby" -  Title
 Festive Branch

 All of the chippie pieces except the word, were simply heat embossed using
gold embossing powder as you would have seen in the video. Just so easy
yet so effective & it gives the layout a real richness.

I just love this new "Festive Branch".

 The "Yvette's Frame" was just the perfect piece to frame my photo.

This new "Christmas Baby" title was firstly coated with gesso, followed by
a coat of  "Silks paint in the colour Carmen", then finished off with a wipe of
Viva Inka Gold Paste.

And lastly a few chippie stars for good measure.

 Well thats all for today. I do hope you enjoyed my video
& subscribed to my you tube channel while you were there.
Back soon with the next part of my 2Crafty reveal.

My First Official DT Reveal for
The Scrapbook Store

"Wonder - Version #2"

Hi there everyone, thanks for calling by.
Well I have officially started on the new design team for
The Scrapbook Store  this month.  Yeah I'm so excited.
Now my first official post with them is this layout which is based
on their monthly sketch. I wasn't happy with my background on my first
 layout (below) so I lifted everything off & started over, hence I have two versions here!!!
When I was almost finished the second version (above) I knocked over a can of Coke
on it as well. Seems like this layout was not destined to be shown.

The Scrapbook Store November Sketch

I have flipped the sketch plus turned it on its side.

"Wonder - Version #1"

I definitely wasn't happy with this version.
Hence the makeover!!!!

Lots of beautiful papers & as well  I also popped a
resin word scroll on top of my layers on the right. This was in a pack
of Melissa Frances embellishments all of which are available through

Plus I have used lots of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard including the Tiny Filmstrips,
Mini Hearts, Words from the Mini Word Set #1 & small Skeleton Clock Face.
Again all are available through The Scrapbook Store.
(Full product list below)

Lots of lovely flowers & leaves  from The Scrapbook Store 
 including  Petaloo, Green Tara & Kaiser.

I just love this little metal chair from Prima. It was in a pack of 
"Shabby Chic Treasures" also available through The Scrapbook Store.
Perfect thing to finish off my flower cluster.

I did lots of fussy cutting on this layout,
these papers were just perfect for that.

Some background treatments using a The Crafters Workshop Brick Stencil & Gelatos.

Well that just about wraps it up for today. I hope you find time to join in the
sketch challenge this month over at The Scrapbook Store.
