2Crafty DT October DT Work

It's my turn over at the 2Crafty Blog today. Here's my post:

"You Are My Sunshine"

This photo was taken at a concert this summer, 
and when I saw how the sunshine lit up my husband, 
I knew the 2Crafty title would be perfect 
to highlight this moment on a layout.

I inked part of the "You Are My Sunshine Title" with navy stamp ink 
and then used bright yellow embossing powder on the rest of it. 
The circle from the "6" Circle Revolution Frames set" 
was perfect to highlight my photo. I also inked that blue. 
I used a frame from the "Polaroid Assortment" as an additional layer. 
This frame was treated with white embossing powder to give it a glossy white finish.

Of course a sun was needed for this page, and 2Crafty has this fun sunburst 
in the "Mini Weather Icons." The clouds came from that set too. 
I used yellow embossing powder on the sun, and the negative space in this piece 
is perfect for adding a little something extra like the puffy sticker I used. 
I added white graph paper on top of the clouds, 
along with some enamel dots for added interest. 
The date from "2015's" was tucked into the Polaroid Frame 
and coated with the same white embossing powder.

"Life Documented: Best Greetings"

This is my step dad who passed away last year. 
I've been making a album for my mom, and this is a cherished memory. 
Ed loved picking out the perfect greeting card, 
and he'd read every card int he shop in search of the perfect one. 
Although I don't have a picture of that specific memory, 
I did have this set of photos of Ed reading a birthday card I gave him. 
He cherished the cards people chose for him too!

I used two different embossing powders on the "Life Documented" title. 
I covered the "documented" part of the title with paper 
and stamped my embossing ink on the "life" part. 
I coated a fine paintbrush with the embossing ink 
to paint the part of the "f" that overlapped the bottom part of the title
and then embossed "life" with Ranger platinum embossing powder. 
I used white embossing powder on the bottom word 
and used a paint brush for the parts that got close to the overlapping "f." 
The "Pen Nib" (which comes in a set of 12, some with words, and some plain)
was also coated with the platinum embossing powder.
 I coated it unevenly to give it an antique look, 
and tied some twine around it for added texture.

I originally wanted to title my page "You always gave the best greetings," 
but I just couldn't make it work. However, the idea of "best greetings" 
was important to my page, so I used it as a subtitle. 
The word "Best" came from the "Mixed Sentiment Card Words," 
and the word "Greetings" came from the "Xmas Mini Word Pack." 
I used the same embossing powders that I used on my main title.
Don't throw away the backing sheet of your 2Crafty Chipboard. 
The frame I used was a piece leftover from the "Polaroid Assortment Frames" sheet.

The "Funky Bird" (which comes in a set of 6) is a fun accent 
and was perfect for holding my journaling label. 
I coated him with brown ink and then added a punched circle of patterned paper on top. 
The hearts in one of my patterned paper made me think of using a little heart 
from the "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" as a wing. 
A googly eye gave this funky little bird an added touch of whimsy.

I added a few extra hearts from the "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" to the top of my page. 
This is a wonderful set to buy, as you get 60 stars and hearts, 
and they are always the perfect embellishment 
when your page needs that little extra something-something!
