First mini album on order!

Just in case you are wondering where have I been, I am still here...Its just that I am in silent mode :)

I haven't made anything for my crafting pleasure lately but I did complete some orders and am working on some more. Today I wanted to share my first Mini Album that I made on order. This one is special, as not only it is my first one on order, it is actually my first time making an album and boy, did I have fun? I had a blast working on it and I am so glad that the person who ordered it, liked it just as much.

The cover of the album which is my favorite part :) I used lot of different papers from Studio Calico, American Crafts and Echo Park to make the cover. The pretty charm was a gift from Tejal.

A close up of all the tiny details on the cover. I used lot of Echo Park stickers to build up the sentiment.

The first page. I have used Echo Park Victoria Garden collection papers and journaling cards on inside pages.

The photo insert. I used Pie Lane Border strips in red and pink to give the photo inserts some zing. I also used 3D embellishments from Itsy Bitsy. I have kept the Photo inserts simple to let the photographs shine.
One of the other pages, just wanted to show the beautiful musical background paper :)
One of my other favorite pages :)

Just a collective shot of some of the photo inserts

I wanted to make a video and show all of it but didn't have the strength to do that so just thought I'd share a few pictures and give you an idea. I hope you like it. I am new to making albums so I would love to receive feedback and suggestions :)

Thanks for visiting!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 

Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching

Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

I know I w…

10 things I love about you..

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card. I took the colors from Smidapaper May Color Challenge, polka dot theme from Lawnscaping Challenge. And I am also playing along Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#56 - Get Sticky.

Supplies: papers: Echo Park Papers(For the Record);embellishment: Element stickers from Echo Park Springtime collection, Little Girl, For the Record, Walk in the Park, Twine from the twinery(charcoal)
I used one of my favorite Echo Park collection "For the Record" for this card and love the way it turned out. Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

XOXO - Altenew Peony Bouquet!

I have a crazy schedule at the moment but I couldn't let go of the opportunity to play along Altenew's March Challenge. It's such a gorgeous inspiration picture. I picked up the colors from the inspiration and love how it turned out.

I stamped the gorgeous flowers and leaves from Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set on Fabriano Elle Erre Binaco cardstock and colored using water soluble oil pastels, blending the colors with my finger. Then I fussy cut all the elements to arrange on the card. For the background, I scribbled the two shades of green water-soluble oil pastels onto white cardstock and lay Hero Arts Pebbles stencil on top. Then using a wet wipe, I went over the stencil to create the texture on the background. The wet wipe blended the open areas on the stencil leaving the crayon look on the negative portion. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Painted Greetings Stamp Set. Then using foam tape and liquid adhesive, I arranged the elements on the base and then mount…
