It's sooo much of fun in our blogland always:) With the spirit of festivities lots of challenges to enhance your skills with fun!!
well today I'm posting a scrapbook layout...close to my heart. I am blessed with two lil monsters and they absolutely make my world complete :)
In the month of February... I have seen my elder one turning into reaaaal BESTEST elder sis!! I was amazed and shocked (and still I'm) to find her treating the lil one as her MOMMY!! ( ofcourse she is better than me as she always cuddles her up and at times scolds me!!)
When I read about lulupu scrapbook layout challenge...the first thought came into my mind was about Sisters only...( as I'm also blessed with my elder SiS bear...and belive me having an elder sis is truly an amzing feeling and you feel blessed always!!) So enough of gyaaannn and sharing...pls have a look and I hope you will like it :)
I have used creame pattern paper as a base. Above to it you can find lot of pattern papers!
Now Let me show you some close ups:
These are handmade flowers. I have used a pattern paper and a balloon punch to make it. Apart, I have made a Quilled flower with single shaded graduated quilling strips from pidilite. ( I loved working on them!) Butterflies are from ITsy BiTSy cut outs...I tried to do a lil punching over it and I belive it worked out well.
Here is my quilled angel icon. Banner near to it is also handmade. I have made a braid (I love this technique) out of 3 ribbons and put a punched hearts and stars over it :) Alphas are from Itsy Bitsy- Angels - In my House ( handwritten)
So here are my cutipies. Above pic was clicked when my lil one was just few days old and I simply loved the expressions of my elder one!! To make a base....I worked with lot of pattern papers...cut them out in ribbon strips. Put a paper dolley over it and then glued glitter mist. You can also find the handwritten sentiments- Hug Harder,Laugh Louder and Smile Bigger!! Over the pink strip- We Laugh, We cry, We make Time fly!
I tried to use my patterned paper for additional journalising.
I worked on Black crocodile patterned paper and to enhance the look used another patterned paper to make frames. I have mentioned the D.O.B. at the corner frames and in the centre my angels are shining together :)
I am really stuck these days coz of several reasons....first I am shifting my house....secondly festive season and occupied with few orders that too from my neary n deary ones...(So I really can't say No!!)...and top of all my lil monsters giving me a hard time as always...phew!!

It was a loong break for me and much needed!! Now it's a festive time in India and you can smell that in the air here!! Till november it's going to be the series of festivities depicting the win of Good over Evil!! I sooooo love it:)
To begin with the spirit of Navratras...I have tried quilling a Maa durga face mask. I have used 3mm pie lane and 2mm quilling strips with a Pie lane self adhesive bling. I have also used pie lane craft board and quilling tool.
I hope you guys are surely into creating sumthing interesting andinspiring :) Hmmm....I was slightly tied up this time coz of my two cute lil monsters and on the last weekend I have got some time to put in some efforts in recycled Kraft. Though it took a good 4-5 hrs of mine to decide upon the look but I hope you guys will like it :)
This used to be an old box :
and these are few waste cardboards, usually you can find them in your pattern paper pack.
So, here we go!!!
1 I have painted the entire box with yellow poster color to make it smooth in color.
2 Then I have used lot of Patteren paper. I have covered it completely from inside with diffrent pattern paper and outside as well. To make it smooth I have used glitters @ all sides and corners.
3 I have used all the handmade embleshiments in this project. For the top I have used Mirror paper to make flower and shiny feathers with a net bow.
4 I have used lot of bling and sparkle in this project. I will show you all the four walls to have a fair idea...
5 Decorate the inner top lid as desired.
6 For Inside I have done twine cording to tie the page pieces. Further you can do the journalising and add photos as desired :)
I belive this is the urrrrfect gift to my 5 yrs. old to keep the things which she loves :) Kindly leave your valuable feedback to make better next time :)
This time I am posting something which I have never tried before....it's more about motivational thoughts and Beleif. I strongly follow my own set of beliefs and faith and I think this actually boost soo much of positive energy at any given point of time into any individual. We really get what we belive...so it's more or less in our own hands :)
Bingo, enough of motivational speech..huh!!
I have made a multifold card...the pattern for the same I have discovered through browsing and I find it little diffrent. I have used Purple pattern paper and tied a lil yellow bow on it..to highlight I have used a yellow bling on it! Sentiment is -Just Believe...it's handwritten. On the top of it I have added 2 golden glitter polans. I have colored the paper with poster colors and mixed 2-3 diffrent shades to get the desired look after that corners were highlighted with Fevicryl outliners....Ohhhh I so love to use them always!
Below to that is a flower embelishment and I have further designed it with pink pearl stick ons. Pls have a look.
Further for the first time I have tried my hand in paper cut...thanks to my super talented krafter friend Hrishikesh poddar who actually motivated by his creations to do it :) I have used Pink Pattern paper and I have added two quilled flowers (tight coil technique) and Rose flowers to enhance the look.
Now on the second fold I have completed my handwritten sentiment with - "Your Wings Exist" and on the third fold I have made a quilled dark purple angel and highlited the head with glitters (Itsy Bitsy). To make this angel I have used 5mm Mettalic purple stripe. Again, Highlighted the corners with Glitter.
It was quite a different one for me...would love to have your feedback!!!
So, I am back :) This time I am going to post a Smile!!
I believe that a beautiful and natural smile brings peace to the onlookers!! So I thought of making a Smile card.
I have made layers for the background. If you see precisely, I have used a white pattern paper, in order to highlight the centre I have used Blue wood pattern paper then Green natural pattern paper. To highlight the white BG, I have pasted Heart shape punches on it and filled the self flower centre with pink glitter.
To highlight the sentiments I have again used a pink self designed sheet and put a red washi tape to highlight the sides. and Put my sentiment on it- "U make me SMILE"! I have also used a paper dolly and colored it with one of my favourite Estee lauder lipstick!! Sometimes I wonder that what I am using!!! again I have put a glitter on that part.
To highlight the bow, I have used aqua sea green croc pattern paper and used blue washi tape to highlight the sides. To make a bow, I have used Pink and Blue Small ribbons. Tying a bow was really a fun!!
I have also used three quilled flowers to compliment the theme. For that I have used 3mm stripes of Pink, deep yellow and Mauve color. I have designed the centre with crystal stick ons and used red and green stripes (3mm) to give it a complete look.
It's again late in the night but I really wanted to finish my first ever WHITE card!! While designing on this I have tried many patterns...I actually wanted to be sure about the final output!!
I have used self embossed patterened paper and did a bit of bling on it by Fevicryl 3D outliner. To give those swirls and heart, I have used 5mm Metallic White paper stripes...they are truly amazing and I always love to work on them!
I get over experimental at midnight so I have tried for a quilled braid with flowers and a tag to give it more feminine look and decorated it with pearls. I hope you will like it :) I have made a boarder and that knotted tag with the help of a paper spool. and I added two of white roses to give it more vintage look. Tag sentiment is handwritten and I have also added a bit of white lace as a side border and pearls to make it more elegant.
To make a heart, I have used bee hive technique and completed it with two lil wedding bells with a bit of shimmering ribbon and used a bit of shimmering white and silver Fevicryl outliner. On the other side I have made few scrolls and swirls.
