The New 2Crafty Design Team Has Begun!

I'm so excited to be on this wonderful team for a second term, and super-excited that my talented and beautiful friend Tracee has made the team too! Vanessa has put up the formal welcome post, so I thought I'd share here too.

Morning 2Crafty Fans

Just thought I'd pop in today and formally introduce our
New Design Team for 2015/16.

The new team starts tomorrow (1st July) and before they do,
I wanted to officially welcome our new design team members and share their
 details with you all,  so please pop over to their individual blogs and see all their
 gorgeous work and familiarise yourself  with their styles and get set
for some amazing inspiration over the next 12 months.

We also welcome back a few of the current design team members
 as well as some sensational Resident Guest Design Team Members.

Before popping down to see the New Team,
I would like to send my sincerest THANKS and a sad farewell to those DT members
 who are finishing up their time with 2Crafty and wish them well with their 
future crafty adventures.  Your commitment and contributions have been wonderful
 and we hope that they have enjoyed their time with us, as much as we have
 enjoyed having them, and their sensational  inspirational projects.

June DT work for 2Crafty

It's my turn to share on the blog at 2Crafty.

"Dumb and Dumber"

My friend Tracee Provis is visiting me from the U.K. for three weeks. 
We're both scrappers, so we're always on the lookout for fun photo ops. 
My local craft store was happy to oblige!

I found lots of awesome 2Crafty pieces to suit the mood of this layout. 

I used the Circle Stack as a starting framework for my layout 
and inked it with black Archival Stamp Ink. 
I tucked frames the Polaroid Assortment Frames set into my photo clusters. 
I embossed the frames with white embossing powder
 and then used a black pen to outline them. 
Goofy eye brads added a touch of fun. 
The orange arrow, which was dabbed with orange ink 
and also outlined with black pen, is from the Assorted Arrows set. 
Three metal dots added a bit of interest to the arrow.

The Bubble Clumps were a perfect element to add whimsy to this page. 
I used Alpha Set 1 for my title, inking it with black stamp ink 
and then outlining it with a white gel pen. 
A larger Polaroid Frame fit the bill for holding the ampersand in my title.

2Crafty has a bunch of different arrow sets, and I used a whisical Doodled Arrow 
to point to the goofy picture of me. That piece was inked in two different colors 
to match my paper and then embossed 
with clear embossing powder to give it some shine.
 Finally, I used a Tiny Film Strip in the corner to balance out my page.

"Happy Time"

This is another layout I recently made using 2Crafty chipboard. This was made for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration, using this Case File:
I used a Clock Face Frame embossed with platinum embossing powder. 
The adorable Birdhouse, inked in yellow and sanded, 
along with the accompanying bird painted in blue, was a perfect accompaniment.
For my title, I used a "Happy" from the Birthday Sentiments
and used navy embossing powder to give it some happy shine.
2Crafty Products used on this page:
6" Clock Face Frames
Birthday Sentiments 

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my pages. 
I hope I gave you some ideas for using the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard.

Together Again {CSI Case File No. 168}

We just opened another Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.

Here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence: stripes, grid pattern, banners, clouds, animal, brush font, transparency, puffy stickers. Testimony: Scattered journaling, inspiration word: happy.

I used the current Sketchabilities sketch:

Here are some details. I love those clouds, cut out of an Amy Tangerine paper. The brush font title was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo. I colored the Studio Calico wood veneer tweet with yellow stamp ink, and how fun is that black border. It's by Recollections. The stamps in the background are Teresa Collins (text) and Studio Calico (grid).

I used a bunch of old paper scraps--Little Yellow Bicycle (red numbers and darker blue), Echo Park (yellow), Chatterbox (light blue polka dot).The little labels are by Teresa Collins. Those red triangles were the centers of the A's from my title.

I cut the scallops with my Silhouette Cameo. The puffy heart speech bubble is by Skippings. I think I got it from 2Peas back when it was open. The washi tape is from Le Box Boutique, an Etsy shop.

That black frame is by K&Co, and I'm not sure who made that transparency frame. I think it was a freebie that came with an order I recently bought.

You need to come see what the rest of the team made, and we've got some awesome prizes up for grabs from A Flair for Buttons, Funky Flairs Studio, Scrapmatts, Flying Unicorn, and Scrapbook Fantasies.
