Trifold baby album

Hello,

This is a late post since I was busy with shifting my house and settling down.
Today I am sharing a trifold album, as my DT project for ScrapMir. This my last DT project for them. I enjoyed creating all the projects with their amazing paper collections. It was really an honor to be part of the Design Team.

So here is my project:



I decorated the front panel with burlap and few scrap pieces from the paper pack. I added a chipboard frame and a tag which can be removed and the baby's picture can be added. I embellished with flair buttons and epoxy stickers. I finally added a few handmade foamiran flowers.






Fussy few images and made a pocket with tags for journalling. 




The album has three folds to hold pictures and tags for journalling. I am sharing a video of the album. 






Hope you liked my project. Do leave some love in the comments below. Till next time 

Happy Crafting!!

Simple Flowers - DT post for Scrap Mir

Hello,

Today I am sharing two projects I made for ScrapMir using their beautiful Paper pack - 'Simple Flowers'

The first project is a layout using the 8x8 paper pack.




I distressed the edges of my base layer and created texture using Heavy Gesso from Prima and Tim Holtz Harlequin stencil. I created layers with the pattern paper and used the chipboard frames to create a diagonal pattern. 






I printed a quote and used that as the focal image. I used only the doodle flower die cuts that comes in the die cuts pack. I added some flair buttons and enamel dots from my stash.

The second project is a box frame.



I created a box frame with a 12x 12 paper from another paper pack - 'Charming'. 
I used one of the paper from 'Simple Flowers' to line the inside of the frame. 




I printed a sentiment and used the golden chipboard frame to highlight it and stuck it inside. I added foam tape to create dimension. I used the coloured flowers in the die cuts pack to embellish the frame. I stuck a thread at the back and the small box frame was ready as a home decor wall hanging!


Hope you liked my projects. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy crafting!!

Whimsical Wonders.... DT post for Conie Fong

Hello,

It is a long time since I colored and my DT post for Conie Fong was long pending. Change of residence, settling down had me occupied and now I am back to my crafting and today I have used one of the images from the set 'Crystal Fairy'. I have used the image without crystals.

I have always loved stories about fairies and goblins. When as a kid, I was always immersed in such whimsical and mystical stories and even used to fantasize meeting them. Dark forests, small fairies with glittering wings and magical dust, making our dreams come true....... I read somewhere "Sometimes we need to survive the reality". How true! So let me get to reality and share how I created my project 😃

I colored the image with copic markers and used Polychromos pencils for some shading. I lightly gave a background shading with Distress inks.



I created a Mixed Media Layout using the image. I have used Stamperia Papers 'Dream'. I added some stencilling and stamping in the background and used a few layers of papers. I also added a few chipboards embellishments and diecuts. I glued few sequins since a fairy is all glitter and magical. I cut a sentiment from the paper pack and adhered it with foam tape.




I finally added my handmade foamiran flowers and few butterflies which I fussy cut from some of the pattern papers in my stash.



Here is the final layout:




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

Pink and Purple Birthday cards

Hello,

Recently I made two birthday cards and the request was one to be pink based and the other purple.

For the purple based card I used Stamperia 'Lilac Flowers'. Such a gorgeous paper pack. I made a tri fold card and embellished the front panel with my handmade foamiran flowers and die cuts.









Tags, Photomat cut from the paper pack. Birthday message foiled with my Minc machine using Deco foil.

Here is the Pink themed card. I used Bob n Betty 'Floral Nymph' paper pack. Gorgeous flowers and beautiful Nymphs and loads of fussy cutting. Again die cuts and my handmade foamiran flowers as embellishments.









Hope you liked my cards. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time - Happy crafting!!!

Hooked

Hi there,

I am at Papericious blog today as a Guest Designer, sharing two projects using their paper pack 'Hooked'. The papers have gorgeous floral images for fussy cutting and I have done a few to embellish my projects.

Tunnel card


The card measures 8.5” x 5.5”. I created the base with Vanilla card stock and created the tunnel panels inside with the pattern papers.

I die cut circle windows for the tunnel effect. I fussy cut the floral patterns from the pack and adhered on the panels. I die cut one of the sentiments and adhered it in the center.






On the side panel I created a small pocket to hold a message tag. This piece I cut from the cover of the paper pack. I fussy cut a small bow and added it on the tag.




On the front panel I added two circle frames and die cuts at the corners. I added few of my handmade paper flowers I had in my stash.



Hope you liked my card. Here is a video of the card.




Magnetic bookmark

The book mark measures 6” x 3”. I created a flap and layered all the side with paper from the 6 x 6 paper pack. 



Before layering I added magnets for closure. I added few die cuts and fussy cut some floral images. 

I added a sentiment from the paper pack on the smaller flap. I added twine for the bookmark and adhered few die cut butterflies.




Here is a video of the bookmark:

Guest Designer at Papericious

Hi there,

I am so excited to share the news that I am a Guest Designer at Papericious. They brought out two Valentine themed papers in Feb and today I am showcasing the gorgeous 'I Love You' paper pack.
I have 3 projects to share.

Spinner card

Recently Jennifer McGuire had share a spinner card tutorial and I was itching to try it out. I created the base panel and made the spinner heart with cut apart from the paper pack.



 

Here is a video of the spinner card



Shaker card

The second card is a shaker card. I made two heart windows and created the shaker part on the front panel. I added few handmade flowers and die cuts to decorate the front panel. 


The paper pack has cute little cut apart and I had to create something with them. So I made a simple pop up elements on the inside. And added the sentiment from the sheet.





A video of the card


  
Tag

I had scrap papers lying around and I thought that what better way to make use of them than making a tag? I cut a base measuring 3.5” x 5.5” and trimmed the scraps and added a doily scrap too!! I also added few fussy cut elements from the sheets.





Hope you liked mu creations. Thank you for stopping by. Till next time ....

Happy Crafting!!
