So, Good Morning, again... :)

Another page from my 16-page scrapbook.. Can't believe there are only 4 more to go after this! Phew! Finally.. Deval must be so relieved that I am finally (almost) done sharing these. It has been long due, since August last year :)

Anyway... This page captures a few pictures from Deval's birthday! And so, I decided that the word 'Birthday' with a smiley, would be apt as the page title :) For this page, I have used a double sided 12" x 12" sheet from Echo Park's For The Record 2 collection.

BGC #45 - Sweet Tooth | Candy Makes Everything Better!

Hello crafty people!!!

Today I am sharing a card that I made for Beyond Grey Challenges' Challenge #45 - Sweet Tooth! This challenge was running from February 1st to February 15th of this month and as usual, I am a little late in posting this! :P

As a part of the challenge, we had to create a card that has the following two things:
   a. Something sweet on it.. Like an ice-cream or chocolate or a cookie on it. I decided to go with Candy!
   b. At least three colours from this palette.. I used almost all of them :)

Happy Birthday, Boss! | Quilled Birthday Card

Good morning folks!

Today I am sharing a card that I made way back in September last year and then totally forgot about. It is a birthday card made for someone's boss. It is colourful, fun and quilled. So as usual, I will start with showing you peeks from various sections of the card and then I will reveal the whole thing. If you've been a regular here, you would know how this works :)

So here's the first peek. The card needed to have a few two pockets on the card front so that small messages written on tags could be inserted into them. So we made two pouches one below the other and embellished them with party favours like gift boxes and party hats (we’ve stamped, coloured and fussy-cut them before adhering them on the pouches.)

Hello people! 

It has been really long since I posted and I realised that I fall behind in posting on this blog only because I am creating new stuff every week and editing pictures is a pain!! So, as a remedy, I edited all the pictures of this scrapbook - watermark and all, and what's even better is I have all posts ready and scheduled all the way till up to March! Woo hoo!!! I am loving it! :D :D

It requires mention here that I finished this scrapbook by August 10 of LAST YEAR so I have been really slow in posting pictures. And between then and now, I have finished two more scrapbooks, so I really need to speed things up. Something needed to be done and I am glad I have figured it out :)

So without further ado, let's get on to this particular page that captures pictures from the couple's wedding. :)

For the base, I have used this sheet from Echo Park's This & That Graceful 12x12 Collection. (I've used the other side as well; that's the next page in the scrapbook :D)

Layout on a Card: #1

Today's card is the first one of it's kind I have made. Sure I've seen such designs elsewhere, but I haven't had the opportunity to try it.. that is, until now.

One of my ex-colleagues wanted a scrapbook but she wanted only one page. So I suggested that we make a smaller version of a one-page scrapbook and did a layout on a card! :) It wasn't that difficult considering I've been making LOs for a while now, the only hitch would be to fit those embellishments (that normally go on a 12x12 page) on a 6x6 card. But I did it anyway and loved the result! :)

I was itching to use these Rose dies from Quilled Creations (destashed by Pratiksha) and what I thought it would be perfect for scrap pieces of PP.

I was soooo excited about making the roses, that I ended up making loads of them in all three sizes and placed them in clusters on three different areas on the card. I also cut out leaves (from the same dies) and distressed them with Crushed Olive & Peeled Paint.

I also quilled some swirls using Brown 3mm strips and placed them around the flower clusters.

The papers for the flowers, the layers, the background and the roses are from My Mind's Eye's Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6"x6" Paper Pad. Lovely papers!!! Yummy!!! :)

As usual, let's get started with sneak peeks, shall we?
