April Inspiration by Noura Pompilla

Hello 2crafty friends
Noura here today to share my April inspiration with you.
My first project is a baby girl layout ...


To frame my picture I used Circle dot frames and tittle Sweet that was embossed in black.

To decorate my flowers I used Lattice leaf in white embossing powder.

For my background I used Circle lace panel which is also in white.

2crafty chipboard used:
-Circle dot frames
-Circle lace panel
-Lattice leaf



My second project is a canvas that I made to swap with a friend from Japan, she likes 
anime like me so she gave me the picture of her favourite anime and I made this canvas  for her. 

Flower doilies were embossed in white embossing powder to decorate under the photo.

To decorate the corners I cut one side of Floral brunch and paste them below
 together with Mini flourish bits that I painted with rust paste.

Finally my title from Arrow word set painted in inka gold.

2crafty chipboard used :
-Flower doilies
-Mini flourish bits
-Corner Swirly heart set

Thank you so much for stopping by

April Inspiration with Bec - Video Tutorial

Hi everyone, today I have my April shares.
My theme of this post seems to be blue and pink layouts. I didn't even realize I'd made 2 similar coloured layouts until I was putting this post together. I do love this colour combo though.

Remember Moments Like This

This layout has a process video tutorial to go with it to show you how I
made the layout. I hope you enjoy my video

This is the 2Crafty Chipboard I used on the layout

Handrawn Hearts
Remember Moments Like This Title
Brick Panel
Roxy's Flourish Vine

I used Prima acrylic paints on the chipboard in this layout, they are perfect to colour chipboard.

Always Follow Your Dreams

Up first is a very floral layout with a mixed media background

This is the 2Crafty Chipboard I used on the layout

Grid Panel
Frame Madeline's Flourish
Leafy Silhouettes
Always Follow Your Dreams

On the Grid Panel I first coloured with white embossing powder, then I randomly sprinkled Lindy's Gang Desert Moon Turquoise embossing powder on with while the white was still hot.   

I treated the Frame Madeline's Flourish and title Always Follow Your Dreams the same way as the Grid Panel. Only instead of turquoise embossing powder I used Lindy's Gang Raspberry Lemonade embossing powder. I like to randomly add the coloured embossing powder because I think it gives more interest to the chipboard pieces. 

On the Leafy Silhouettes I also used the  Lindy's Gang Desert Moon Turquoise embossing powder but this time I just added it to the raw chipboard to make the colour come out much darker. 

Thanks for visiting

April Inspiration by Sabrina

Hello 2Crafty fans,

It is my turn to share my projects for April.
My first project puts my hubby and I in the spotlight.
 Even after 18 years together, we're still in love. 

"Love is in the Air"

For the title, "Love is in the Air", I used a gold embossing powder
 which really makes the text stand out.

I applied a pink metallic embossing enamel on the "Ava's Frame"
 that blends well with the background.

I first painted the "Climbing rose bush" with a black matte paint.
 When dried, I applied a gold embossing ink.

I used a silver metallic paint on the "Fancy Damask", diluted with water. 
Then, on top of the paint, I applied a pink embossing ink.

For this project, I used the following awesome chipboards:
Ava's Frame (FR0096)
Climbing Rose Bush (DB0100)
Fancy Damask (M00564)
Love is in the Air (W00418)

"Family Forever & Always"

The second project I want to show you today is quite special for me. I did the 
"Family forever & always" layout as a gift for a close friend, hard-working
 mom of three that just graduated from university.

On the "handdrawn feathers", I applied a red-gold embossing powder.

To give this nice rusty look to the "Hearth Clumps", I used a red ink,
 then applied some gold-copper embossing ink on top.

Finally, on the title "Family forever & always", I applied a white-pink embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the 2Crafty Chipboards:
Handrawn Feathers (M00588)
Heart Clumps (M00576)
Family Forever and always (W00125)
That's all for this month! I hope these inspire you to create as much
 as I had fun doing them for you! See you next month!

April Layouts Created by Rachael Funnell

Hello 2 Crafty fans!
Rach with you sharing some more April Inspiration....
My first layout featuring my gorgeous girl.

'Timeless Beauty'

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Brick Panel
Thistle shrub
Indian feathers
Tiny feathers
Timeless Beauty title

Inspired by my girls dress, I went with the soft pastel colours, 
I have heat embossed both Timeless Beauty title with a pale pink and Thistle shrub a teal......

I have left the Brick Panel raw & cut it in half and placed half at the top and other
half at the bottom of the photo, just to  bring a little more attention to the photo.....

I have used a couple of the Indian feathers & Tiny feathers.....
 First applying white gesso to the both Indian feathers & Tiny feathers, then
 inking them ever so lightly with purple or pink...

 I scattered them thoughout my page to finish it off nicely... 😊 


For my second page 
A photo of ME & my young man.....


2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Funky Heart swirls
Lacy border
 Leafy Corner
#Mini word set 2
YOU word from Card Set 2

With such strong colours I still wanted the chipboard pieces to stand out, 
so I have added couple of coats of white gesso to #mini word JOY.

I did the same to the  Funky Heart swirls,  Leafy Corner & 2017

The Lacy border strip I have inked with black & the tiny word YOU sitting on
 the photo, has been heat embossed with a Navy Blue....

That's it for me this month....
Thanks for stopping by...... I hope you liked what you see and where inspired in someway....
till next time
