Trick ‘O’ Treat!

In the midst of a busy busy weekend celebrating Diwali, I squeezed in some time for making really fun treat boxes for Halloween; which happened to be less than 24 hours apart. Phew! But I am excited to make some SPOOKTAKULAR treat boxes to treat those kids who are going to knock at our door today. (I caught some of that Halloween lingo too..) I made a few during the weekend and left to make one in front of the camera for you folks. Hope you enjoy this video and get some fun ideas to create such boxes for your neighborhood kids too..

Happy Valentine’s Day Series Day 1

Hi guys,

It’s the time of the year when we all express our love to our loved ones and our friends and family. I am eager to share with you all some handmade canvases and a handmade card for this valentines day.

So here are two different versions of the canvases. The first one is of a young couple showered with love.



I love the tiny details of her sparkling earring and her beaded belt. The intricate corners of the canvas brings the whole canvas together. The 3 dominant colors used are black, white and red which is so simple yet brings so much color and love to the picture.

The second version of this is that of a more classy looking older couple. The elegance is brought through the rich attire of the gentleman in a suit and the lady in a gown with her hair tied up. I have added little sparkle in her ring and her hairdo has red beads. 

Let’s see both the canvases side by side. The so in love young couple and the matured and totally in love older couple.

With these two canvases I made a wedding card with some really intricate design. I made the card in a beautiful plum color with a contrast beige background and to tie it all together I used a rich satin ribbon. 

The intricate lace design layering the beige has a shiny finish to it making it more rich and festive.

Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #8 post

I am back after a break of two blog posts as I had some last minute shipping to do. I promise, you will soon have your eyes on it.
Yay! We are here at the final page of the baby book. Since I missed two posts, I decided to give you a bundle on this one. This post has the last pages and a video coming up. For those of you who are on a time crunch or have missed the baby series posts, scroll down to the end of this post for the video and the links to the other posts from this series.

Check out this page with 12 months of the baby and the cute clock denoting the time of birth.

You can move the hands of the clock to set the time of birth and cherish that moment forever.

 

The page below is the end cover page and can hold a picture of the whole family and has a huge pocket below.

 

The end cover of the book has the same wood grain finish as the front. I just love this finish.

 

Moving on to the video, I just want to let you all know that its my first time recording a video for you guys. So please take it easy on me as I promise to do better with the audio quality next time.

Baby Shower Party Favors (Baby Series #2)

   Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #1 post. Now that we have our invitations out of the way, lets move on to planning some awesome party. Gifts and pampering is assured. But to make the Baby shower a success we need to redress our space to make our guests feel like partying. So here’s our party favor cupcake holders to get the party rollin’.


      This cupcake holder is the PURRRFFEECTTT way to say “Bun in the oven” or should i say “Cupcake in the oven”.  These are pink in color as I made them for a darling friend who bakes some yummilicious cupcakes. She ordered a baby book (Hint: Coming next in the series *wink*) and i thought won’t it be just awesome for her to bake one of her handmade cupcakes and give it to the expecting mom inside this warm oven? For those of you wondering how big this is, the dimensions of this box is 3 x 3 x 3 inches. It is sturdy enough to hold a cupcake and even cookies as my baker friend suggested. If you want to add a TON of frosting on your cupcake and want me to make the dimensions bigger I can absolutely do it for you.

The oven door has a clear sheet on it to keep the cupcake safe and also allows a little sneak peak of what flavors you like. I have added Congratulations to the handle of the oven door as this is a box for the mother. But if you want it for a baby shower we can make it say anything you want, like my friend wants some of these and might want to put her shop name on it (she is still deciding on that). The back side of the oven has space for a little personal message too. 
These cupcake boxes are not exclusively for baby showers. They can even be a birthday party favor or you can add little candies inside for friends to carry with them when they leave. And yes my indian friends, it can hold indian sweets too.

Moms are always cool! Giving them this card makes them a tad bit cooler. Won’t you say?! This was for my mom’s birthday. I wrote app appropriate comments on each of those flaps. Totally loved it.
