Waterfall Card !!

Hi all

Posting after a short gap, we had gone on a short vacation with the whole lot of our family. Had a real fun n masti time, kids enjoyed a lot.
Ok now to crafting, U must have all seen the wish book i made for my son's bday, now here is the invitaion i made. Its a waterfall card, tried it for the first time. I wanted something different n grand for his bday, after all its the 1st Birthday. It was based on the chotta bheem theme colours of orange n white. Have a look at the pic....

The Upright card

I used moon rock sheet for the base n for the flaps, secured it with brads (all from Itsy bitsy) and finished it by adding some punched out shapes and a thin ribbon for the pull.

The Pulled out card

When u pull down the flaps, the Chhota bheem is seen from behind and the party invite is at the bottom. Adding the chhota bheem sticker behind the flaps was my husband's idea n it turned out well. Making the waterfall card was fun n having taken the precise scoring, it was easy. Here is a short video showing the pullout mech


Finally i ended up making nearly 30 of these invites. Little laborious i agree. But it was the first Bday.

When i made these waterfall cards, i liked them soo much that i have tried a couple more in varying themes, ill be sharing them soon. Hope u all liked it today, do tell me ur views. 

That's it from me folks, have a great day

Easel Card !!

Hola Ladies......

Here is an Easel card i made, the flowers are from Juhi's Ribbon Flower Tute. I loved making the flower and am gonna make more of these in the upcoming projects. I always love making my own embellishments and look for easy ways to make flowers, especially.
Nothing much to explain about the card, jus added some bling to spice up the front panel. I hav added foam tapes beneath the sentiment to give s pop up effect.

The front View

The Side View

I loved the red handmade sheet. Living in small town has this disadvantage of difficulty in sourcing good craft materials, but the deeper you search, everything is available around. Thanks to Nithya Jaswanth for suggesting a paper hub in Madurai. The shop keeper had such lovely varieties of handmade sheets, he is a wholesaler in 'Wedding Invites' cardstock, So imagine the varieties, he even had the moon rock sheets n other self embossed sheets @ a much cheaper rate.

Hope you all liked the card, do give ur suggestions to rev it up.

First i'd like to thank you all for visiting my blog n leaving wonderful comments. It really makes my day!!

Now here is an explosion box i made for my friend on order, yes dats right, on order. She liked one of my boxes soo much that she wanted two for herself to gift it. So here is the box, it is wedding anniversary themed. I loved how the box had come out. Here are the pics...

The Open box

Close Up of the cake n the banner

So how is the cake & the banner? The cake took a lil time to assemble, but the banner part was a 'cake walk' :) I dint want to over do the cake, so had it neat n nice. I also made some space to put photos and little pockets for tags.

Stamped Sentiment

The box top n the tags

Loved making the tags, i have used 'cup cake' washi tapes in one, but it is not visible properly. And now the outer view, this is where i could still improve, looks a lil plain.

The outside view
Thats it folks, see you soon with another new project soon.
Till then happy crafting

Wish Book !!

Hello there everyone..... what scorching heat. Guess everybody s beating the heat with many new n wonderful projects. Today i'd like to share a wish book i made for my son's 1st bday. I was always amazed by Juhi's mini albums, she makes such lovely ones. Some of the elements in this wish book is an inspiration from her work.

We had a Chhota Bheem themed bday party for my son and i handmade this wish book for all the 50 odd guests to pen down their wishes for him. Here are the pics..

The cover

Since our theme colours were orange n white, i based the whole 'wish book' in orange. The book rings are from Itsy Bitsy. The PP is from Lulupu "Girlhood" paper stack. The star buttons are from my sister.

The inside pages 1




For the inside pages i have created pockets using corrugated sheets (again from IB) to hold the loads of tags i made. The PP is from IB too. I have used various embellishments on the pages n the tags (like buttons, ribbons, foam flowers, stickers, punched shapes, washi tapes, etc)

Some of the tags

 And now the tags, i loved making the tags, each one different from the other in shape, colour, embellishing n PP. I used loads of different handmade CS for this, its all local buy. U just have to discover the local shops. The polka dot ribbons n shaped buttons are from my sis Pooja. Thanks Pooj, loved the buttons.
The guests had to each write their wishes on one of the tags. All the tags had such lovely wishes on it. Thanks to all for making my son's day grand n spectacular.

Thats it for now. Thanks for stopping by n do pen down ur thoughts... c ya.
