Handmade fabric bound baby album + a video

As you all know that I love love love making baby albums and I finally gathered the courage to do a fabric bound handmade album! The binding system of this album is sewn too for extra strength and this 10*10 album has lots and lots of space for putting up the pictures of your little one!

Here are a few pictures and I also have a video of the walkthrough of the baby album :) 


The cover page has an interactive element as well, a slider and the boy slides to reveal a message at the slider panel!

A few pictures follow! Don't forget to watch the complete video at the end of the post!

Friendship album!!

I recently did a friendship themed album to be gifted to a male friend and thoroughly enjoyed making this pretty one! There is not better gift than a gift of someone you can trust and friendship is the most purest form of all the give and takes!!

I did the album in the mixed media style and loved the outcome!!

Used my new Prima doll for the center of the album and the client loved it all, and that was the icing on the cake!



I love trying out different forms for my albums and this style called as Mixed media is my current favorite one!!

Baby Album

There's nothing better than making a album full of memories and I love love love making baby albums!!! There is nothing close to perfect than keeping all those special moments of your little bundle of joy all at one place!!

Here's a baby album I did recently and I so so so love this! I'll put up a video soon, meanwhile, you can enjoy the album's cover page which is done with using a lot of elements and is a total mixer of a lot of things used!!

Hope your day is amazing!

I recently had a chance to make a all together replica of my earlier card for a friend. So much so for the persuasion to letme change the colors and a little bit, all went into the drain and I then finally gave up and make it exactly similar to the one I did sometime back for the DT post I did !

Here's the card made all together again!!



I must say it's diff to create exact replica's of the card even for the one who made it initially!
PS: I'm using the same image i used for the earlier card as I did  not get a chance to photograph the new one I did!

Spellbinders Magic

I'm more of a album making person, yet I do have a couple of spellbinders nestabilities which I had bought in my early crafty time!! A Friend asked recently to  make a card for her fiance and she settled on a double slider card! It was supposed to be all romantic and roses defines romance!! what else could I have done!
I used the Altenew Vintage roses stamp set that I had purchased for making roses for scrapbooking purpose and decided to use those to make the slider card
Here's a pic!

The slider mechanism works when you pull the ribbon and the two inside flaps pulls out!!

I loved the outcome of this pretty one!!

My first Mama elephant stamp set!

I love cute critters and they tend to make me happy!! I have been hoarding a lot of cute critter stamps and recently got this cute mama elephant stamp set and was eager to try it out!!

Here's what I did with the stamp set. These critters are awesomely cute and I made a shaker card!!

Happy Birthday Card

I love making card and I'm saddened by the fact that I rarely get time to make them! now that I have been hoarding a lot of stamps, i decided to make watercoloured cards as gifts to my crafty friends for a drive that happened! And i totally loved making these pretty ones!

I shared one card sometime back, in this card, I have used Altenew stamps and have watercolured them !

here's the card!




Hope you will like the card and excuse for the small things that I could not do properly. I'm a beginner in watercolouring and the more I experiment, the more I'll learn!

Here's the card that I made!
