Falling leaves Card

Hi Friends,

Continuing our fall season celebrations, here is a fall card. I have used the maple leaves stamp and distress inks. I have used two different sets of distress inks for the two different cards shown below. One has the smaller maple leaves with veins seen and the other maple leaf stamp is a block stamp. I had a lot of fun making this fall card. You can watch the video below or on my YouTube channel.

Ganesha Art Journal

Hello my crafty friends,

Let me start of the post by saying “Ganpati Bappa Morya. Pudchya varshi lavkar ya”. In today’s video, I share how to make this beautiful Ganesha art journal with striking colors.

I had so much fun making this page using different techniques like die cutting, distress inking, stenciling and paper piecing. I have also used some embellishments to give the project more life and interest.

A memorable trip to India – Part 3

 Hi guys,

        This last and final post of the series is the reason I went to India in the first place; to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday. It is done as ceremony to renew the couple’s vows as per south indian traditions (Sashtyapthapoorthi). We had a lot of fun prepping for the wedding and at the wedding. We also had a small photo shoot after the wedding. I am sharing a few pictures with you all.
   You know you are all set to celebrate when you have beautiful mehendi drawn on your hands. You feel extra special when your dad or husband feeds you food while you enjoy the beauty of the henna design and the aroma of mehendi. My mom being the bride chose peacock designs for both of us. Here are a few pictures.
     Let us now set the stage for the bride and groom to tie the knot once again and watch them say “I still do.”

And they finally tie the knot.

A few pictures now from the photo shoot after the wedding.

Stationary Box!

Hello hello…

I am back with one of my favorites this week. Its a stationary organizer. Has there been a time when your desk is a mess and you are looking for a pen and its right there staring at you but you still can’t spot it? I get you. It happens to me ALL THE TIME.. That’s why I came up with a solution.

Let me tell you guys, I am obsessed with organizers and anything that tidies the space up. This little guy has been a life saver for me. This organizer is small, compact, cute and freakin’ functional all in one. No kidding. It holds your stamps that are so tiny and can get lost in any desk; it holds a pen you can grab and write on, it even has space for cards, envelopes, and business cards. You can hold addresses, contacts and birthdays on the little magnetic book.

Now you may tell me any office supply store holds this. Yes, may be. But does it close into this adorable cute box of your favorite color, matching your office decor, or even better with your name on it? I highly doubt. The ones you get at the store sits on your desk occupying space and you want it to just go away when you aren’t using it. Now this little stationary box does that for you. It closes up to this cute little box and hides away everything that needs to be hidden 😉

Baby Series #4

Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #3 post.

Happy Monday! This post should lighten your Monday morning mood. Keep reading..

Today we are moving on to the next few pages from the Baby Book. The first page has a stork holding a baby peeking its head out on  top of a vintage pinkish plum colored picture frame. The sentiment below says “Sent from Heaven”.

The second half of the page is all about the stats of the new born. The flowers are punched out and the eye and hair colors are distressed.

The second and third pages hold all the FIRSTS of the baby. Everything he/she figured how to do for the very first time. The parents would want to hold on to it forever.
 
Each one of these flip open as cards and has space to hold a picture of the baby and for the parents to write all about the moment.
A closer look pagewise

Some of these cards hold small embellishments even inside. Like this one below, the first food card has a baby bottle outside and a matching baby bib inside.

The other side of the layout has 6 more firsts. As you can see I left 3 of those empty for the parents to fill. Hey, each baby is different after all. The parents can brag about their little kiddo here.
Here is a list of firsts:
  • 1st night home with a little moon on a cloud and a heart.
  • 1st food on a blush pink and gold banner and blue baby bottle. 
  • 1st haircut with scissors.
  • 1st bath with a baby having bubble bath and a rubber ducky.
  • 1st car ride with a 3d car embellishment.
  • 1st stroll with a 3d stroller embellishment.
  • 1st tooth with a shiny smilie tooth.
  • 1st steps with two 3d baby boots.
Each of these cards are secured using strings. I did this coz it gets easier to hold up more pictures in case it gets bulky.

That’s it for today. Stay tuned for the next series post to see more pages from the book.
