We are so very proud to spotlight the following gorgeous projects from 5 very talented designers from the 2Crafty DT which feature their chipboard and have been inspired by our August Main Challenge

 Bec: The word YESTERDAY made me think of old photos. The reason why I started scrapbooking was to preserve these photos, so I chose a favorite old photo of my daughter from 9 years ago. I followed the VINTAGE inspiration on my layout with my colour choices of warm classic tones, plus the use of antique lace and pearls.

Bec was able to capture the essence of our August challenge on her so very lovely layout with the use of these 2Crafty chipboard pieces: Frame Celia's Flourish, Flower Doilies, Corner Thick Vine, Lacey Border Set 1 and Friendship Mini Word Pack.

Hetty: I really enjoyed this challenge and combined the creative twist with the YESTERDAY word inspiration by using a vintage photo. To me, VINTAGE is all about old photos, muted colours, torn papers, distressing and lace.

This gorgeous page designed by Hetty is what we had in mind when we thought up our challenge this month. It doesn't get any more vintage than this. And we love Hetty's choices of 2Crafty chipboard as well, which are: Circular Leafy Frame, Summer Leaf Stems and This Girl.

 Hina: The word YESTERDAY inspired me to create this layout with an old picture of a lady in sepia tone. For the creative challenge, I combined the photo with several 2Crafty pieces that I found looked very antique and embossed them in coordinating colours to bring everything together in a VINTAGE feel.

We agree! Hina's choice of 2Crafty chipboard along with the photo could not have captured more beautifully the theme of our challenge. The chipboard she used are: Nella's Frame, Flourish Adornment Set 1 and Mini Word Set 2.

 Lisa: I was inspired by the YESTERDAY theme to create this layout using an older photo of my daughter. I loved the warm VINTAGE tones and feel to this paper collection and felt that my 2Crafty chipboard matched perfectly.

Lisa's choice of papers do bring a very soft classic look to her page and we love that our word inspired her to showcase this sweet memory of her pretty daughter. Such a gorgeous page! She used the Flower Doilies, Tangled Lamp Posts and Mini Swirls 1 from the 2Crafty collection.

Sabrina: I was inspired by both the VINTAGE creative challenge and the YESTERDAY word inspiration. I wanted to create a vintage ambience around my black and white picture by using a wood textured background along with a dull colour palette. I decided to apply a patina finish on some of the chipboards to accentuate the antique effect. I also used an aged-looking embossing powder and stamped some script writings with faded black ink.

We absolutely love Sabrina's layout with its faded vintage look and perfect purple accents. She was able to bring us back into the past with the help of these beautiful chipboard pieces from 2Crafty: Frame Yvette's, Circle Lace Panel, Fine Word Set 1, Foliage Set 1 and Pretty Flowers.
