Mini album


I am back with a beautiful mini album. I love the way it came out so it's beautiful for me at least. ;) Outer Base is made of a thick milboard. I first time used magnets in my projects, made mistakes and learnt a lot too. And first time i used eyelets too to hang my recent favourite thing, charms. So here it is:

I got printed one photo extra and use it in that charm. Doesn't it look fab? I loved it. 

I made a lace alike thing with pink ribbon and attached it with a white lace. For bordering too, i used a lace. 

That brown flowers on a bow and red flower are handmade by me with ribbon. It was my first try. 

The whole album is made from a DCWV Be Mine paper stack. 

Some more angles:

When i took this photo, that small photo on charm was pending. 

This album was made on order for celebrating togetherness of 5 years so I wrote togetherness with a calligraphy pen. I am not so good at it yet. :|

And Back side of an album. 

I have shot a video for showing how it goes, still i would like to share some pages of it:

And here is a video for whole album.

Thanks for visiting,

Explosion box - house shape


I am super excited to share this with you. It was my first attempt (as usual ;) ) and now I'm loving it. It took much more time than a normal explosion box. 

As this was my first overseas project, i wanted to make it totally different than i usually make. I got idea of this shape from one pinner and i tried to pin afterwards but now i am not getting her. :( so it was all in my mind. I am not good at triagnle measurements and i found no tutorial for that so it was all i need to do my own so it took a much longer time than it should take. But in the end, final product matters. So here it is,

Isn't is beautiful? It's made by me so ofcourse i would love it. ;) whole box has been made from DCWV be mine stack. It has such a beautiful embossed papers which u can see in video. Being a house, I have used a key and a cage and eiffel tower charms. Rooftop has been bordered with a lace. One side has flowers and I Love You as a house name. ;) and other side totally with big flower lace. 

And now opposite side of this:

I am super duper excited for inside, especially centre of the box. :)

All the layers are not possible to show here so do watch video to see how it goes. 

Closeups of centre:

Doesn't it look like they are standing live there? I fussy cut the photos and adhered them. I don't know from how did this came in my kind but yeah, it's not at all an idea from somewhere. It is only my mind. ;)

At last, here is the video of box to see how it goes. Its been taken without photos except centre ones.

Accordion cards - girly as well as mascular


It's been a long time since i posted last. So this time i have so much to share but it wont be covered in one post. ;) so today i have accordion cards to share. Apparently there is nothing in it but i loved making them and people loved it too and that's why i made more than seven accordions in 3 days along with other cards before friendship day but here i will share only three of them as they are totally different than one another. 

So here is my first one which made it famous ;)

Front side. 

And back side. 

This was a girly one. Now i have made other two which are Mascular Cards. One for a girl who is tom boyish and one for a boy. This was a special request and as it is not at all my style, i had to think a lot and some inspiration was from surfing also. It's not from particular craftar else i would mention. So here is first mascular card which was for a girl who is tom boyish. (I was told not to use flowers or twines or pearls, only butterfly). I made boxes for these two. 

And now the last one which was for a boy:

And here is a combined video of all showing how it goes.

I hope you enjoyed it.
