Explosion box for Valentine's day.

Hello,

Here I am sharing my DT project for ScrapMir for their task 'Sweet Valentine'. I could not post this earlier since I was shifting my residence. Today I found some time to squeeze and write this post.

I have used the gorgeous paper pack 'Beautiful Moments' to create this two layered explosion box. I have used coordinating chipboard pieces and die cuts.

 

Here are the sides of the explosion box...








I have added corner pockets using Heartfelt Creations die - Fleur Borders and Pockets die and added photo mats. I have also fussy cut the journaling tags from the sheet.








On the second layer I have added heart shaped photomat / journaling space. In the centre I have added a chipboard cake and decorated with die cut hearts and handmade flowers.




Hope you liked my project. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy Crafting!

Desk Calendar - DT Inspiration post for ScrapMir

Hello,

A very Happy New year to you.  To kick start my crafting for the new year, I have created a desk calendar for my DT post with ScrapMir. I have used their fabulous paper - 'Charming'

I had always wanted to make a calendar and this year I finally did it!! Yay!!



I made the base with medium weight chipboard and created a magnetic base for monthly calendar panels. I made six panels with months stuck on both sides.


I used coordinating chipboard pieces, epoxy stickers and die cuts to decorate the panels and of course my handmade flowers.




On the back I have created a pocket to store the monthly calendar panels.





Here is video of the calendar:




Hope you liked my project. Wishing you all a crafty year ahead !

Till next time - Happy Crafting!

Inspirational post for Scrapmir - 'We are all Brothers'


Hello,
I am back with another project for Scrapmir for their challenge - 'We are all brothers'.

I was reminded of my dog, 'Bushy', whom I lost almost 6 years back. I made an accordion pocket album to treasure some of the special moments we had captured.

I have used the beautiful paper pack 'Gentle Morning' and the chipboard, flair buttons and the die cut sheet for embellishing the album.


The album is 6.5" x 4.5" and has 6 pockets with 6 inserts measuring 5" x 4.25". Here are more pictures of the album and a video of the album at the end.

Today I am sharing a vintage style scrapbook album I have created as DT for Scrapmir.

I have made a Photo folio mini album measuring 7.5"x 5.75", using the 'Time to Dream' Paper. This is perfect for vintage based creation.
I have used the coordinating die cuts and chipboard pieces to embellish the mini album.
Here are some pictures of the album. I have a flip through of the album and a tutorial of the album at the end.

Christmas easel card.

Hi there,

Here I am, with an easel card made with Die'sire die set from Crafter's Companion. This is my DT inspiration post for Conie Fong.
 I have used the digi image from Conie Fong - Noelle's Gift. You can buy the image from her Etsy shop here

I colored the image with copics and fussy cut it.


I prepared the card base using Die'sire die set 'Swirls Easel'.  I added the sentiment and a small flower embellishment on the inner panel and my card was ready. 

Here are the pictures of the card:





Hope you liked my card.  Till next time - Happy Crafting!

Fly High - Mixed Media canvas

Hello there,

Welcome back to my blog. Today I am sharing a 7" x 5" mixed media canvas I made as DT post for Itsybitsy. My slow stride in the field of mixed media - a long way to go still. but as my friends had said, the more experiments I do with it the more I am loving it.

Here is a brief pictorial steps on how I created it:
  • I applied embossing texture paste using the cobble circle stencil.


  • I stuck the chipboard pieces and applied gesso over them.


  • I sprayed color sprays and applied gesso on the chipboard pieces to lighten their color as well as priming them for adding acrylic paints.


  • I applied acrylic paint Opal Magic yellow from Prima. I applied a bit of gold and purple wax from Viva Decor. I finished by adding flowers, gems and dew drops.



Here are few more pictures of the project:










Check my post on Itsybitsy blog for a detailed process and materials used.

 Hope you like my project. Thank you for visiting. Till next time - Happy Crafting!
