Inspirational post for Scrapmir - 'We are all Brothers'

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.

DT post for ScrapMir - Vintage style scrapbook album

Hello there,

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!

DT Inspiration post for Conie Fong


Here is a card I have made as an inspiration for this month. I have used 'Ellie's Holiday Helper'

I have used Bielo cardstock to printout the image and colored it with copics.

I used MFT scallop frame die and created the card with Graphic 45 pattern papers. 

I added few of my handmade foamiran flowers and other embellishments. I added few star sequins to complete the card.

Hope you like my card. Thank you for stopping by.

Till next time - Happy crafting!

cute matchbook mini photo album


I have a cute little matchbook album, which can be used as such or as an insert in albums. This is my inspiration project for Itsybitsy.

It measures 4" x 4" and I made it out of a  single 12" x 12" card stock. You can make this for birthday/ anniversary/ or any occasion with few pictures of cherished moments.
I have used 'Vintage Frame' die for cutting frames for photos and the flowers are made with the flower dies in the set.

So without much ado, let me get into how you can make this.
  • Take 12" x 12" cardstock and score at 4" and 8" on one side. Rotate it 90 degrees and score at 4" and 4.25" , and 8.25" and 8.5"

  • Cut the quarter inch flaps on both sides as shown in the picture.
  • You will end up with the sheet looking like the one in the picture below. Fold and burnish all the fold lines well.
  • Cut alternate flaps to around 1. 75" so as to make pockets.

  • From the cut scrap pieces, make four 1" wide pieces. score and fold at .5" .  The pieces should slightly less than the pocket height. Stick these to the pocket flaps.
  • Cut the two side flaps of the top fold which will be less than 4". This will be the flap cover.
  • Stick the side flaps to the base to make pockets.
  • You can shape the cover flap in any way you want.
  • Decorate with pattern paper and other embellishments.
  • I have used the Vintage Frame die, which gives a perfect frame for photos.
More pictures of my finished project:

Here is a video of the project:
