A Holiday Album Project

I had the good fortune to go on a Mediterranean Cruise in August with my husband, 2 children and parents. It was a wonderful experience, we visited 5 different countries and enjoyed fabulous food, wonderful sights and unforgettable experiences. I must have taken over 200 photographs so of course the first think I wanted to do when I got back was preserve at least some of them in a holiday album. I took some time trying to figure out the concept, but once I knew what I wanted to do, I wasted no time Read more...

Baby Shower Invitations

My dear friend Sowmya is having her second baby in a month and a couple of us got together to organise her baby shower. Of course for me organising a baby shower isn't about the food, the party games or the decorations. It's only about the invitations! I love any occasion to craft so I really had a blast doing the invitations for her shower. I shaped the invitation as a little diaper. It was easy enough to find the template online so I found one that suited me and cut it to this shape. Once I put Read more...

Baby Boy Layouts with the Spellbinders Cherry Picking Die

Spellbinders Dies are one of the best investments one can make in their crafty endeavours. Most Spellbinders dies come with 3 to four cutting options and have the capability for embossing and stencilling.

My first order of business - using it for a Baby Boy Scrapbook. Here are 2 pages I created using Read more...

Cards with Crochet

My love affair with craft began when I was seven or eight years old when my mother introduced me to cross stitch. She taught me the basics and then gave me a pattern book as back then there weren't any stitch kits. I spent hours embroidering little birds and flowers, fruits and designs. Then my mother taught me how to knit, that again became a passion. Later my interests evolved to artwork and painting and now it is paper craft. Through it all, crochet was the only thing I hadn't tried. I was always Read more...

Birthday Party Favours with Itsy Bitsy

My daughter recently celebrated her 2nd birthday and I'm the kind of mom who gets really into the party theme and wants everything to be thematic.

A Candy Box and Card Set

With festival season around the corner, I thought it would be fun to spend some time doing candy boxes to pack with chocolates, sweets or mithai. I honestly feel that candies become even sweeter when the presentation is top notch which is why I wanted to go all out to make the box and coordinating card as grand as possible. I also feel that candy and sweet boxes should have a 'peek-a-boo' window for a sneak peak at the goodies inside so that that's what I included in my creation. For the base of Read more...
