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.

PPRS November Sketch Challenge!

Hello! It’s November 15th and time for a new sketch challenge at Prickley Pear Blog. There is a lovely sketch for you to play along with and of course there are prizes to be won. And since there are no product restrictions this month i.e. you are NOT required to use Prickley Pear Products to participate, I really hope you will play along for a chance to win 15$ certificate to the PPRS store.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps:Prickley Pear (Victorian Ornaments) ink: Jenni Bowlin (Seed Packet); embellishments: Pie Lane(Frosted Crystals, Tiny Gems), Twine from The Twinery
Sorry for the bad quality pictures. Anywhoo, my ornaments are heat embossed with AC zing emossing powder (leaf) and adorned with Pie Lane's new product "Tiny gems". I made this card during my sick-out-of-mojo days, so just kept it simple and went with the sketch.
Don't forget to visit the PPRS blog for more inspiration. I can't wait to see wha…

Guest Designing for Imaginations!

As I said before, these days I am suffering from a lot of things all together.
- being sick
- weakness (just a better term for laziness :D)

- no mojo for crafting

and so I am only doing projects strictly for DT, GDT assignments and finishing up pending orders.

Anyways, today I am guest designing at Aditya's Blog Craft Zone.
He opened up an online book and craft store called Imginations a while back and is looking for Design Team members to promote the store. I was really delighted when he invited me over to design, but since I am already committed to a couple of design teams, I agreed to be a guest designer and making samples now and then if not on regular basis.  By the way, Design Team Call is still open for Imaginations, so you still have a chance to apply

So for my first sample today, I used the First Edition Paper's Love Letters Pattern Papers from Imaginations Store  to whip up a quick card.


Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; pattern paper: First Edition…

I hope things get better soon :)

So today I am guest designing over at CraftyJC Challenge#11 - Pick your Palette where the challenge is to chose your color palette from the given three. Its fun, I am telling ya :)

Polkadot Door blog hop #November

Here is the inspiration picture for this month's challenge

and here is my take on it



Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: smART Works,  ink: Momento(Tuxedo Black); coloring medium: Faber Castell Water color pencils
I went quite literally with the inspiration picture(the brown table, colorful dishes and serving bowls, strawberries) because I had the long ignored perfectly matching stamp to go with it. :D It was super fun to color in this image using water color pencils.

Holiday Tag + I'm on Vacation :)

Happy Friday! I am so happy today, because not only its Friday today but because I am also leaving for a week long vacation and will be visiting my in-laws and parents :) So I will be away from my precious blog but will try to pop in now and then :)

And today I wanted to leave you with a little holiday tag which I think is super cute :D


Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Penny Black(hello friend),  ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar); coloring medium: Faber Castell water color pencils
Not many of you might know this, but I love water coloring and that was the first thing that I picked up and was really good at in my drawing classes in school. When I got this Penny Black set, all I wanted to do was water color the images. They are super cute :) I wanted to make the car look like it was flying and then I wrote the sentiment saying "Express Delivery". I think it goes perfectly here :)
I am entering the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge#72 - Holiday Madness

Challenge from a dear friend :)

A few days back, my very dear friend Romina, issued me a challenge and a difficult one at that :D
The story goes like this : She had purchased some MS punches from me and as they were sitting at my place to be picked up, Romina messaged me saying till the time they are with me, I can use them and the rest of the conversation went something like this :

Me: "Thats sweet of you girl, but the stuff belongs to you and I don't wanna use it before you do and anyways I am no good with punches :)"
Romina: "Make a card using the MS Floral Band punch in 3 different ways"
Me: "Is that a challenge?"
Romina: "Yes"

Ohh I so dreaded the moment :D This was a real challenge for me and there were actually 3 challenges in one.

Challenge:
1. Use a punch
2. Use it in 3 different ways
3. Finish the card before the stuff gets picked up (approx. 1 hour)

Can you imagine? I was struggling..and struggling hard :D
Finally I came up with this
