Framing Memories


I was asked by a relative to make a photoframe to be presented to her husband on his birthday, the only condition was I had to make the flowers like the one's I had made in my 'Love is' Explosion boxes which can be seen here and then we decided to make the flowers in the shades of blue and it came out to be exactly to be like the picture I had visualized :) and this made me very Happy

and yes I forgot to tell, the photoframe is handmade too :) It's made out of a thick cardboard and then wrapped up in white sheet.

This is when I saw up the color challenge on Itsy Bitsy and decided the team the blue with a green :) and this is how it turned out to be



I distressed another white sheet of paper with Green color and stamped it up with the swirls and placed some cute rhinestones



Here's a corner pic of the arrangement on the bottom left corner


The top right hand corner looks like the above pic :)




I added a li'l bit of lace and a charm to allow my creation for entry in the Crafter's Corner challenge for this month which is a BINGO :D
I have used up the first vertical line there of Distressing, Pearls/Rhinestones, Ribbon/Lace and it can also go up with the first horizontal line which says  distressing/Flowers/Charms


 This is something which I loved making and I hope you guys liked it too!!!

Entering it for the following challenges:

Hook on to the Explosion Boxes.. this time it's a carousel one !!!

Hi Crafty People..

I'm certainly hooked on to making Explosion Boxes.. they are sooper dooper fun to make and there is such a lot of craziness in making them, a part of this craziness comes from the fact that, it's fun to watch the recipients reactions (of course, if you personally give it to them).. they are always amazing :)

This time around, I experimented by Making a carousel explosion box since I wanted to make one of each shape and size.

Here is what I made !!!
A Carousel Shaped Explosion Box with a Love is.. Card..
Isnt it cute.. I even have a Love is.. flag at the top :)


Here's what the box looks like when opened. Also seen here is the Card.. it's a simple card .. yet is very elegant to look at :)


A complete view of the explosion box.
It has places for 6 TAGS where wordings can be placed. as well as 6 passport size pics can be attached as shown on one flag (b/w this is my brother's pic when he was a kid and dunno why .. but I have always loved this one.. f…

Butterfly Zentangle

I have been making zentangles these days whenever I get some time.. You might have seen my earlier attempts here.
Here's a butterfly zentangle I make sometime back :) and I'm pretty happy the way it has turned out to be.
What do you think??



I hope you liked it... it's an pleasant site seeing a butterfly since seeing them in Metro's these days is a miracle!!!
