Crawling - A Layout!

Even when my daughter will turn one in less than 15 days, I am nowhere close to completing my baby's first year scrapbook. But yes I am taking one step at a time and trying to do it by the end of this year (I have too many great photos of her to scrap and so little time :)).

I did manage to squeeze time to make this layout last week when I decided to work on my Craftslane product showcase for this week. Only because I had the perfect photo, perfect papers and perfect embellishments to put it together and the June sketch at C'est Magnifique was perfect for this layout too. I also wanted to show you that Craftslane products work equally well across different projects :)

By the way, C'est Magnifique also has an awesome Bits & Pieces giveaway open right now. It's super easy to enter and lot of yummies to be won. Just saying :)

And here is my layout,


This fabulous base sheet is from the Kaisercraft paper from the English Rose Collection called Pearl available at Craftslane store.


The beautiful tissue flower is handmade and what actually makes it beautiful is the MDF snowflakes that works perfectly as a flower center. I also used a few different die cuts, a tiny bit of stamping and few bits of rhinestones too.



And here is my favorite part of the whole layout, those gorgeous MDF alphabets. Just love how they look on the layout. There are really great MDF embellishments available at Craftslane Store.

And I couldn't resist the temptation of adding a rustic twine bow on the top.


What do ya think guys? Am I getting any better at layouts?  :)
I hope so because I really like this one and would love to know what you think.

Have you shopped at Craftslane yet?

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.

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…

Gond Painting !!

Wishing you all a very happy holi !! Its a colorful spring festival celebrated here in India and I wish that it brings lots of happiness and good things in life for all of you!

And on this colorful occasion, I thought I'd share something different and something close to my heart with you all. I have been crafting right from when I was a little kid and I have always loved to explore different forms of art and craft one of which being the traditional folk art of India.

India has a very rich culture when it comes to art and off late I have been hooked to giving all different forms of folk art a try. After I tried my hands at Madhubani last year which is a folk art from the state of Bihar, I am now hooked to another tribal art form called Gond from the states of Central India (Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh)

I love the way these Gond Paintings look. They are simple and yet so detailed. Its all about filling in the everyday life motifs with dots, dashes and lines.
