A Mini Album

Hello Friends ,
    So long I have been trying to convert Scraps into a Treasure .. Loads of ideas and lots to do !!

Today I took a break and ventured into making a Mini Album made using Envelopes .

Now I have used fresh new envelopes from a local Stationary Store .. We can also use Old Greeting card Envelopes or Wedding cards / Envelopes too for this  ..

There are lots of tutorials in you tube on how to make lovely albums ..

Happy to make one for myself  !!

Hope you all liked it  !!

A Rockstar !!

Hello Friends ,

Of late I have been collecting loads of Scrap .. :) Yes !! Thanks to Ms.Rupa and Dr. Sonia for their Lovely Enchanting  altered crafty goodies !!

I have been wanting to do something with Cereal box for long . But this Soap box came in front today and wanted to alter it badly.

So here is what I did ..

I altered it in such a way that, when kept separately can be a beautiful frame and when kept together can be a gifting box ( Earrings , Trinklets , Chains .. etc ) too !!!

Here is what I did .

I cut the Dove Soap box into two . Joined the ends back to complete the box look.
 Applied a few layers of Newspaper to strengthen the box ..Else the box can fall apart !!
Next I distressed the papers from old book. I have used only distress ink  - vintage photo , as I wanted a Vintage look . I Love the Antique look and feel <3 .
I pasted the Distress paper ( Used it as a PP , you can use any lovely PP in your Stock ) around the Top and Bottom of the 2 boxes ..
Embellished it with Handmade Blooms , Ribbons, beads and leaf twirls . You can see measuring tape running along the base edge with few buttons . Its just to give a rustic look ( Hope it looks as I wanted it to be :) )
 I had a Guitar Keychain with me . I have used the Guitar too for embellishing  .

Hoping you all loved this beauty !!

More Scarp to Beauty projects in line , again thanks to Rupa and Dr. Sonia for inspiration :)

Regards ,

Your feedbacks are valuable !

Layout - EMOTIONS !!

Hello Friends ,

Quite happy with the look of my First LO  :)  It gave me a feeling that the more I try I can come out with better works- Layouts ..

Lets see my second LO - EMOTIONS - ' When it rains, every moment turns into an eternity '

I got it from a Magazine .. Loved the wordings .. The place in the background was Kerala tourism .. More liking to it :)

The heat here in Hyderabad is killing , wishing it would rain asap ..

Nothing more encouraging than making it a theme for LO :)

This is a very clean and simple LO ..
1. A cardboard on which I pasted two colours - yellow and orange corrugated paper ..
2. On a piece of paper I stuck the picture from the Magazine  at centre . The white area around it was distressed using mustard seed distress stain . Color Mustard seed went very well with the Yellow and Orange paper.
3. Then I decorated it using handmade flowers using Joy craft die , leaves, birds, Butterflies .... I loved the way it turned out ..
4. The LO was a bit too simple, thats when I added two pouches which can carry Tags and Note cards ..

Hope you liked it !!
Happy Crafting .

I have entered this for :

My First Layout - Father's day Special !!

Hello Friends .

Father's Day was nearing and I wanted to make a layout for long ..

Most of the LO I have seen have loads of  Layers in it ..

Was not so sure would be able to pull it out ..

Still Until you start and do it , how  can I learn  ..

My First Layout is ready  and what better day than FATHER's DAY !!!

First I took a Hard Board , applied Gesso . Now was the difficult part for me - Layering !!
The first layer was PP, second layer was Corrugated cardboard, for third layer I took a plain white chart paper which I distressed and stamped music notes on it .. Last was another PP on which you can paste any photo ..
Next was decorating it  . I handmade lots of flowers using Joycraft dies . I loved the way it came out :) 
I cut a few memory box die tessatina border and tree branch .

I am a person who likes minimum decoration !!

So here is the final outcome ! Hope you all liked it !!

Happy Crafting

Thank you ,
