Lovey Dovey Birdies Nest..a Celebration of Love..

Hello People,

I have always been fascinated by birds and always had wanted one. I remember one of my friends in Bangalore having a parrot and 2 rats as her pets... :D It was fun playing with them.... but it was long ago...
Nowadays, I kind of remember them and want to have one, but then it's kind of a battle since my husband wants a dog... he misses his Labrador soo much  and I'm so damm scared of Dogs that I can even re-route myself is a stray one is coming from the other end :D

None the less, if not the birds, atleast I made myself a bird cage and decorated it with flowers, I even have a pair dove hanging inside...They say that the most Lovable of all the birds is the Dove.. they represent love purely :)

Here's what I made :)

I call it Lovey Dovey Birdies nest :) it's called " A celebration of Love"...



I also have included a message " LOVE LIVES HERE" at the other end of the Birds Cage..

Here's the close up of the flowers embellishments.. 


Love is all around....

Hello People...

Def Love is all around, I had happened to see a accordation style card sometime back but then it was made with a die. and I dont have dies, The idea of the card appealed soo much to me that I somehow and anyhow wanted to make it.

This gorgeous die is designed by Karen Burniston who is an acclaimed designer for Sizzex and this die can be purchased from here http://www.sizzix.com/product/658035/sizzix-bigz-die-album-accordion-flip-3-d
I thank Karen for making such a fab die which looks awesome !!!

Here's what I made :)
This is how the card looks like when opened.. and well.. who would want to keep it closed and locked.. :)
This is my bestest till date.. and I love it!

Hearts all around

Hey Friendz,

I made a photoframe with hearts all around. Sometimes so happens that all the crafty ideas come while I'm kinda half asleep.. and then the sleep just vanishes off and my mind's wheels start churning as to how can I do this.. :)
Here's what I made this time..  The frame is a handmade one too !!! :) kind of upcycling not in use things :)


I did not had a picture of this size, hence added a quoted insert there :) I hope you liked the frame !!

Together Forever :)

Hello People,

I made a side step card this time, had seen it by a couple of blogger friends and thought of trying it out.
I'm also quite impressed by Doodling and I didnt knew till 6 years back that it's called doodling, for it had been my favorite timepass when I was doing my masters, Only the clear skies of my institute know's how many evenings I had spent on the terrace with my drawing book in my hand with a black gel pen. Here's a  a peek of what I used to do there :)


 exactly 6 years before... ok okay.. 4 days short of  6 years if I go by the date on the drawing!!

Here's what I made with my side step card. :)
I love doodling and since love is in the air... well for some hopeless people, it always is.. like me :D ( no doubt most of my creations end up getting into the love category )  ;)
As usual I ended up mixing the stamp with my handwriting, the 'together' and 'for life' is handwritten...



okay okay, no photography trick here, my finger just …

Cascading card ! Love is in the air..

Hello People,

I saw a cascading card on the website and did a lot of googling to find out the procedure to make it and found it on Dr. Sonia's site.. :)

Here's what I made with my cascading card..
I decided to go floral with this card and have used a lot of flower embellishments in this one :)


The netted structure in the pink is hand-woven and yes... it took a lot of time to weave this one :D



I added a cute rosette at the back of the card ..


There's a ' be mine' tag that I made along with this card. Basically anytthing can be written onto the card :)



I hope you all liked it and a big thanks to Sonia for the tutorial :)

Love Mail Box

Hi Crafty People,

I'm back again with a Love mail box. It had been long in my mind, and had seen it about 2 weeks ago on pinterest and had loved it. I dont remember the board where I saw it, but it had been on my to do list sincee then.
You know, everytime I see something good, I note it down and look down upon the instructions on the net to find myself one and make it.
I found the instructions here http://www.simplymodernmom.com/2010/01/special-delivery-paper-mailbox-tutorial-and-pattern/
but I did some alterations to suit my dimensions.

Here's what I made:


 I had made an prima rose flower following a tutorial, it's the pink one there, I agree that it's not very pretty so have decided to make more of these till i get perfection :)



I have made 2 mini love cards along with it to be kept inside the mail box !


This is how the mailbox looks like when completely closed.. I have handwritten the Love sentiment on the flag and have outlined it with silver sparkle pen. My new …

Forever Thankful...

Hi People,

My second post of the year and I'm pretty happy and glad to have used my first stamp in the card I made this time. yayy... I bought a stamp set and have user 'forever' sentiments along with the hand-written word Thankful to express gratitude to all my Crafty friends who have helped me in everyway through this crafty journey of mine.. :)

So this Card is for all of you.. expressing my love and thanks :)

Another angle of the card.



I have used a new stamp here and which probably makes me eligible for the CASology challenge of something new :)
and the sentiment 'thankful' is handwritten :) I'm loving my own calligraphy ...

A new card

Hi People,

I'm always fond of creating new things..I saw a tent card tutorial on the internet somewhere and thought of adding some fun elements in it.

Here's what I made :)




I loved the small quilled miniature flower pot there :)


There's a pocket at the back for storing in your wishes!!!


I hope you all liked it!!
