Post#7 Beehive Gift Box

Day 7 of my blog……My blog is now 1 week old….Yay….!!
Thank you for going through my blog posts…
A simple gift packed beautifully makes all the difference…Don’t you think??
Other than cards and tags,I love to make boxes and gift bags….I loved to wrap gifts nice and neatly even when I was little…..but now I take it a step further and make the packaging myself…
For this box I have used the specifications given by Sam Donald(pootles.co.uk) and followed her tutorial to make this box which she calls the Beehive Box…..Sam is an impressive crafter and a great teacher…..If you haven’t discovered her yet…then I suggest you take a look at her blog and start following….you’ll learn so much….
Here’s the link to her tutorial…
I hope you liked this box.

Post#5 Happy Birthday Tag

Birthdays are a happy time for most of us…and a bright and colourful tag on a nice big birthday present would be so very exciting…
I made this tag in a cheerful mood and the end result reflects my feelings perfectly…
The die cut word ‘happy’ is actually in a soft gold paper …the rest of it was pretty simple….just stamped the banner a few times and coloured it in bright colours….added a small yellow label under the die cut with birthday stamp and added a nice pink ribbon…all done…
Hope this tag cheers you up as well…

Post#4 Anniversary Card

Today I’m sharing an anniversary card….It looks very simple and yet there is a proper technique that has been used to make this card….It’s called the faux letterpress technique which I learnt from one of my favourite blogger Jennifer McGuire…She used various doily dies for her cards but i didn’t have any so I used a word die for my card instead…
Here’s the link to her tutorial…
The aim is to get a letterpress effect using ink on a thin die and running it through the die cut machine(A Cuttlebug in my case) to get the outline printed and the rest of the die is embossed rather than cut…
It is so much fun to learn things and try new techniques…and its even better when things turn out just the way you want them to…
Cheers,

Post #3 Watercolour Tags – Bright and cheerful

Making colourful tags is one of my favourite things to do these days….they don’t take too long to make and turn out really nice….I usually try to keep them simple and uncomplicated…
Playing with watercolours is another thing i like doing a lot…I cannot paint or draw and still use so much watercolour for my craft projects…I love how unpredictable they are…and yet so beautiful…
Adding these to any gift will definitely make it a little bit extra special…
These tags are made using Peerless watercolors,watercolour paper,sentiment and flower stamps,love word die,butterfly punch and some ribbon.
Hope you liked these tags.

Post #1 The first post…

Hello…..You’re reading my very first post…


I love crafting(what’s not to love?)….mainly with paper…and love to create and learn something or the other whenever I can get a little bit of time..If I’m not making something, then I’m prepping things to make something later on…

There are so many wonderfully talented crafters teaching all sorts of techniques and styles with their detailed measurements and tutorial videos which is so helpful for new crafters to learn….and there is so so much to learn and try….

The idea for this blog…my very first one(yay!!)….is to post something I created – everyday if I can…

I do not pay attention to brand names and products and most of my packaging is thrown away immediately….especially stamps….For me it is never about the product used but the end result…

Clicking pictures of my creations is another thing I’m working on…

This simple card below was made using a stencil,glitter tape,a few sequins,stamps…the flowers were heat embossed and coloured in…



Hope you liked my creation…Have a lovely day..!!
