How I store my layouts!

This is just a quick post with a quick video answering one of the most frequently asked question - How do  you store your layouts?

P.S. Video isn't the best and has a lot of background noise due to construction going on in the neighborhood. Please bear with me :)



And for those who aren't video fans, here is how I do it.

I use this cloth bound 12X12 D-ring album from American Crafts to store all my layouts. I am using this brown color one to hold my daughter's first year layouts and I have similar ones to hold my marriage, honeymoon and other pictures.



I have found these albums to be a great investment and they also act as a motivator for me to make more layouts :D
There are lots of designs and patterns available in these but I like the plain ones for the endless possibility  of decorating them. How about a little decoupaging with mod podge?

An album comes with 10 page protectors which can easily hold 20 layouts. The best part is that you can purchase the page protectors separately and add around 30-40 more in one album which means around 80-90 layouts in an album which is quite a lot :)

Page protectors come in packs of 10 like this and are top loading i.e. the layouts will go inside from the top. These page protectors also have ample space to accommodate layouts with dimensions.  


It is as simple as that. So for those who are just starting with scrapbooking or are struggling with storing the layouts safely, this post is for them. These albums are real good buys, something you won't regret investing in :)

Have a good Sunday my friends !

  1. Thats nice.. I hold my LOs the same way, except i like to use A4 rather than 12x12.. I find the huge space in 12x12 too challenging! :D maybe someday wen i am really good in scrapbooking i'll move to the bigger size! :)

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…
