  Hello Everyone!
Hope this fines you well..
Well its that time of the year, time to be inspired 
and create all things christmas....

Today I have this layout I created for

 featuring my girl on christmas morning in 2017!!

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

ATC Title stick set 1
3 Piece Holly frame
Santa Gnomes
Holly Twigg
Merry Tree

For this ADORABLE Santa Gnome 
I went & inked it with Rose pink,
Then with a paint brush & some gesso, coloured the heart..

Using the medium size Holly Frame 
Coloured this with Tim Holtz - Distress Oxide
Peacock Feathers (teal)

Once I had adhered the frame I felt like I needed more, 
So I went and coloured a couple of the Holly Twiggs with the teal,
cutting into smaller pieces, then placing in and around the frame..

the Merry Tree & 
'Simple Moments' from ATC Title stick set 1
A simple but effective treament to the chipboard

2 Crafty Chipboard....

This masculine page featuring my boy 
with his grandfather, along with some
FABULOUS 2 Crafty chipboard pieces....

Clock Face discs
Moment (title)
Geometric arrows

The Clock faces are popular even with the 2 Crafty DT
 and a great addition to any project...I kept it simple but affect 
with inking with black and adding them thoughout my paper layers... 

Did the same to the Geometric arrows, 
inking them black, cutting one of  the arrows in half 
before adhering to my page....

The 2019... Which i'm pretty sure by now you are aware 
that these are one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE 2 Crafty Chipboard,
As I do tend to add the year to most of my layouts... 

Finalizing my layout with inking the 2019 & Moment 
with Tim Holtz (Peacock feathers) teal & 
(Chipped Sapphire) Blue...

2 Crafty Chipboard
'Forever in my heart' layout

Hi There!
I hope this finds you well...

Today I have another layout to share 
and I have used some FABULOUS 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces...

Key holes & locks
Fine word set 1
6x6 Wing Set 1
Forever in my Heart
Foilage set 8

Keeping it all quite simple with the treatment
 to these chipboard pieces,
 inking them all with different coloured inks...

For the Title 'Forever in my Heart' I inked with 
a burgandy ink..
Did the same with the Fine word - 'Treasure'

The Key & 2018 I have inked with Brown..

For the Foilage I inked with yellow then cut them
into smaller pieces placing them thoughout my layers...

The heart frame is actually a negative piece
from the Frame handdrawn heart... 
Which I think works really beautifully as a frame too..
 I also inked with yellow....

Lastly is the gorgeous wing peeking out from the right side of my photo...
(These 6x6 Wing Sets would have too be still one of my ALL TIME Favourite chipboard)
I rubbed this ever so lightly with the yellow ink...

Thank you for stopping by
Until next time.

HAPPY Crafting!!!

with my 2 children/her grandchildren....

and have included some fabulous 2 Crafty Chipboard..

Heart silhouettes
Circle cluster frame
Border Rose bush
(Treasure tage) Circle tags set 1

Once I had the basic concept on how I wanted to create my layout
 I started on preparing the chipboard, first up the Circle cluster frame
which I actually left it raw, framing my photo nicely....

The Heart silhouettes I inked them with gold before adhering them...
The Beautiful Border Rose bush you see thoughout my page, 
I have inked with a Khaki green, before cutting this into smaller pieces
and placing them in and around my layers & flower clusters...

The Treasure tag from Circle tags set 1
First gave it a coat of gesso, 
then lightly added some yellow... 
Repeating that process to the Mini Fog watch

The 2019 where I added a couple of coats
of gesso before adhering this 
and finishing off my layout beautifully...
