JOURNAL

                                                        JOURNAL

When a crafter has an idea, it keeps haunting him or her unless they simply create it, this  journal is one such idea which was haunting me. I wanted to use these gorgeous vintage style papers into a journal which is 12 pages each for a month of the coming new year, I made this as a gift for an uncle of mine. There is space to write, a lot of journaling and pics too... I kept the cover page simple with some charms. A perfect New Year's gift :)

The over all look of the page:







 A little handmade with love charm:













Some tags, notes. Its simple and classy. A perfect way to record a year of one's life.

MINI ALBUM THEME: DAUGHTER


The theme of this album was " My loving daughter" 

It was a Christmas gift sent to the daughter residing in USA by a loving mother who is here in India and misses her everyday. She wanted to capture all her life so far with the people who mean to her. It was wonderful making this one. Yellow and blue being the main colors. Short and sweet with so much to say....

Scrapbook Mini Album


Antique Themed Mini Album

I really wanted to try an antique or vintage looking album with some flowers having colors which standout.

This album is sized 6 by 5.5 inches. Total 6 pages including front and back.
I did binding to these pages. Used antique themed pattern papers distressed them a bit. Album has space for pics and tags and some space for journaling. Album has embellishments made by me, its minimum. Handmade flowers by me.



This is the over all look of the mini album.

This month, the craft blog challenges every where were majorly based on the theme Autumn. Those colors of the fallen leaves are inspiring! In fact nature has always inspired every creative person be it a poetry, song, photo, painting or a crafter like me! Below is a card I made today inspired by this theme.


I wish to experience Autumn someday! in India its beautiful in a different way :)

EXPLOSION BOX/ CARD IN A BOX

While exploring different techniques of card making I simply fell in love with this concept of explosion box which itself is like a scrapbook. A box which appears as a gift box and when you open up it flips all four sides with pics messages tags etc!

This is an anniversary explosion box I had made for a couple celebrating their first wedding anniversary together. Its 6 by 6 inches, loaded with pics messages tags love quotes mini cards etc.

The box over all!





The lid:


 The look when you open it up!

I receive a lot of explosion box requests will be posting more soon!
