Memories…photo frame!


photo frameHi friends!

Its me again after a  hectic weekend..this week turned out to be a little ‘worky’ for me,well to let you know my family had our mom’s funeral ritual done on 3rd of this month(DEC)and i hope she is in Peace now..

Christmas was one of my Mom’s favorite festival..though being an Hindu(religion),most of our religion people find it unusual to celebrate Christmas,but my Mom never cared about all that…she just loved…loved and loved Christmas!

she would get up really early on the eve,bake tons of cakes and cookies,decorate our house with the lights and also decorate the Christmas tree for us(the kids).

But now its been a Year that she passed away,leaving her precious memories in our heart’s forever..

so today I wanna share with you this creation of mine that i made especially in memory of my mom..and it is also for a challenge at http://quirkycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/

Lets quickly move on to the tutorial:

I have taken 4 maroon card stock paper for the entire frame,cut all the card stocks it in about 9x5inches,take 2 card stock and cut out a square from the enter..(this is where the pictures fit in!)

Tutorial:Altered box.

First i took an empty,’crepe bandage box’,cleaned it properly(both inside and out),then i took my green pattern paper which is from Coosty Creations:Poinsettia paper pack and wrapped it all around the box..i punched out and oval shape in green card stock and used it as my stamps backing.The stamp that i used is from Lil Diva: Lil Angel and i have used Stickles glitter glue-green and yellow to cover up the edges of the stamp and have also used the yellow one to glitter the little angel’s wings.

for the lid or you can say the cap of the box,i have used a green scalloped card stock paper to cover the whole lid and then embellished it using my dark green lace which is about a half inches and glued it all over the lid.

i have embellished my box with pearls and handmade flowers and also tied a silver bell as a charm.

valentine scrapbook1

hi friends!

today i am going to share with you a card that i made out of the scraps that i had.first,i was thinking of just throwing the left over scraps but then i thought why to waste these pretty scraps then to use it in some kind of craft project…so here i am with a ‘thanks giving’ card which is completely and totally made out of the scraps that i have been storing in my stash.

Before going to the details of the card,i would like to say one thing to all the crafting friends out there,not to throw those let over scraps…just think of something you can utilize it into and make something beautiful out of it.

The stamp used in this card is from one of my friend,who actually gave it to me in a printed form(she was throwing it,i don’t why!)and said i could use it some time to make up something,so today i finally got the chance  to use it in my card…also it was a thanks giving one,and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and i was thinking of working on a few cards so it went well with my card.

the sentiment is from purple onions mini sentiment stamp set.

the autumn leaves are hand drawn and hand cut by me using some of the scrap paper i had.. the lace is again a left over from one of my creation that i made earlier and the layered papers are also some of the christmas paper scraps that i had..so i combined all and came up with this.i have also done some stitching (drawn on with a pen!)

and have also used these left over pearls at the top right of the card.

i hope you guys lie it.

i am entering this card for the following challenges:



Scary scarecrow!
