December Layouts + 2 Videos
By Anita Bownds

Anita here with you today sharing my last layouts for 2Crafty.
I've had an amazing time on the team & with that being said here are my layouts.

"We Are Family"
With this layout I wanted to use the colors pink,black and gold
I inked "fancy damask doily shapes" with gold ink and half my "title".

Here is my process video of my layout.

Here is a close up of my title with the two colours.

Here is a close up of the "Big fancy damask" tucked under my photo layers.

I added in the "Little fancy damask" in  and added a embelishment on top.

word-we are family

I was thinking when I started this layout I wanted it  to be really girly 
so I chose the colour pink,yellow and grey with the greens of the leaves
and lots of bling.

Here is my process video of my layout.

I inked the frames with pink ink and took out the centers.

I made my own little crape paper embellishment with a punched glitter heart
in the center for my title to sit on and I inked my title with gold.

Here is a whole view of my frame with bling.
I inked with light pink ink.

 I added the key under a punched glitter heart 
I inked it gold.

Here is the other frame I inked light pink and added a little banner in the middle.

December Inspiration by Catherine Giguère

"A Christmas Tradition"

Hello 2 Crafty fans! 
 Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts that I hope will inspire you. This is my last post as a 2 Crafty Design Team member. The time has come to leave this beautiful team that I love so much to meet new challenges. 

Of course, my first layout is a Christmas one. Every year, my children and I are going to visit Santa Claus and, of course, I always take several pictures of this event. This is our Christmas tradition. For this layout, I used 'Blitzen' chipboard that I embossed with silver powder to goes with my paper.

Of course, I choose the title 'A Christmas Tradition'  that I embossed in black to make it stand out. I put it in part on my picture. Under it, I used a star stencil with black modeling paste to add dimension on my background. 

I also embossed my 'Holly Flourish' in silver to match my paper and add silver details.

- a Christmas Tradition
- Blitzen
- Holly Flourish

'Pretty as a Picture'

My second layout isn't a Christmas one, but I love it! For this one, I did a textured background with stencil, modeling paste, violet and brown inks and some stamps with brown Archival ink.

I embossed my title 'Pretty As A Picture' and my 'Moroccan Bits' with oatmeal embossing powder.

Then, I embossed with garnet embossing powder my 'Frame Oval Ornate' to frame my picture.

I hope that you have found some inspiration for your projects 
and I want to say goodbye to everyone of you. Thank you so much for your comments, I had a blast being part of 2 Crafty Design Team! I wish you a nice crafty day!

December projects + Video by Valerie Ouellet

"Christmas Tag"

Hello 2Crafty fans!
Here is my last 2 projects with 2Crafty team. I hope to have inspired you during this year and a half.
I had a lot of fun creating with these wonderful chipboards. Thank you very much for giving me this opportunity. You can keep following me on my blog if you want.

Now, here is a Christmas tag with "Swirly Star Border" that I embossed in white. I added several stars of "ATC tiny hearts&stars" decorated with Ranger enamel accent.

I love the chipboard "Deer head set". It's one of my favorite one. I just embossed one of the head with black embossing powder. I like the dramatic effect.

"Magic card"

I have made a VIDEO TUTORIAL

Now, here is a Christmas Card, very simple but very beautiful. I used a wonderful piece "Chloe's Vines". I embossed in white before painting it with 13arts paint. I love the imperfect look.

I embossed in white the word magic on "Christmas mini word set 2". 

I also added stars painted with Ranger Enamel Accent.

Hello 2Crafty Fans!
Today I have a few projects to share with you all. I hope you like them.

"The Eyes Are The Window To The Soul"

Some close ups-

I cut my The Eyes title chippie into a few pieces and arranged them like so.
 All the chippies have been coated with gesso and then I used watercolors to add color to them.
I also added some mini art stones to the Whispy dandelion chippies to add some texture.

"Dream Big"

My next project is this layout with the title Dream Big.

Some close ups-

I covered the Dream Big title chippie in gesso and then used
chalk edgers to give the ombre effect to it.

The Flower doilies chippies are just awesome to add depth and texture in your layers.
 I love using them behind my photos.
 I framed the cluster using the 6"Circle revolution frame chippie.
