Recycled Project Day#1 - A box of batteries & charger

Happy Monday people! Hope you all had a great start to this week. I have been in a mood to recycle off late and thought I'd share 3 days of recycled project here on the blog starting from today.

Having a tech-savvy DH means a house full of wires :D - chargers, cables, batteries and what not. And that also means a cribbing cleanliness-freak wife aka me.
Today's project started when my DH decided to test my creative skills and gave me the assignment to make a box that will keep all the re-chargeable batteries and chargers in place and that will also mean a happy wife aka me again :D He had his requirements clear:
  • make it sturdy
  • have separate compartments for different batteries (charged/not charged/re-chargeable) and chargers.
  • make it pretty

And so my search started to find a sturdy box and then I stumbled upon this - a sturdy crockery box !
The front
The Inside

And my search ended. I first worked on making it pretty.
Covered in pretty Studio Calico Papers to match the color of the room :)


Additional piece of cardboard to the bottom for the sturdiness(ignore the mess on my table :))


Felt strips with eyelets for all the four corners, for more sturdiness


labelled the box with alpha stickers from Echo Park to say "Chargers, Battery and stuff"


Inside with an additional compartment and all the stuff that was meant to be :)
And ta-da :D
DH is a still a bit critical but I am happy with some of the wires put away :)


Hope you liked this little project of mine! 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.

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…
