Play Time - Layout!

Even though my daughter Aadya turned one last month, her scrapbook for the first year is far from complete. I counted today and I have only 8 layouts so far "head hangs in shame".

So I decided to merge my personal and professional commitments here and since I had to showcase some wonderful products from Craftslane shop, I thought I'd do it in a layout featuring a few of my favorite pictures of Aadya :)

When she was about 6-7 months old, she loved playing peek-a-boo with my dupatta and we captured some of her pictures playing :)

I followed the July Sketch at C'est Magnifique. I just love their sketches and kits :)

The gorgeous & fun pinwheel paper called Burst is from Kaisercraft - Save the Date Collection.

These wonderful wooden embellishments are my all time favorite. You can find these beauties at the Craftslane store here.

I made some paper pinwheels using scraps of pattern paper and layered them over the printed pinwheels for a fun look. Can't get enough of this wonderfully bright and happy paper :)

I hope you liked it! And if you haven't shopped at Craftslane yet, I recommend you to give it a try :)

Have a playful day :)

Double Tri-Shutter Card!

Alright, so I am posting after a long long time but that doesn't mean that I don't love my blog anymore :) I still and will always love it. It's just that with Aadya growing up and demanding more attention, travelling and lots of work to do including workshops, I just couldn't find time to update things here.

But I plan on spending the whole day(that is Aadya's nap time) today updating the blog and scheduling posts.

Today I am sharing a fun new fold I tried using the amazing paper from Craftslane store. The fold isn't new, it's just something that I haven't tried before so it's new to me.

This is how the front looks.

Close up the handmade flowers, made from cardstock, distressed with walnut stain and mustard seed ink and sprayed with Maya Road pearl mist.

 Open the ribbon and open the card for a fun surprise :) 

  This is how the card looks when opened completely.

A little close up of the panels :)

I used the beautiful KaiserCraft paper called Pinwheel from the Save The Date Collection and kept the embellishments to the minimum to let the gorgeous paper talk for itself. I used both the sides of the same paper to achieve the look and I could complete this whole card with a single 12X12 sheet of paper :)

If you wanna try this fold just google for "Double Tri Shutter card tutorial" and you will find plenty. And if you want to find some pretty paper like the one I used here, visit Craftslane store to find a whole lot of variety of gorgeous papers :)

See ya soon again!
