Princess On Board

Hello all, I'm back again with a baby project!!

Recently we bought a "Princess on Board" hanging for our car. It was beautiful. But the crafty me wanted to alter it into a more girly-crafty hanging ;) I can hear what you are saying ;)

Here is the hanging before altering:


Ta-da!! After altering:

I added some punched lacy borders. I also added a few pearls to the crown. People who read my recent posts would have realized by now that I'm addicted to butterflies (especially my new MS Butterfly punch) ;) I also added a few flowers with punched leaves.

A view from a different angle to show the butterfly and flowers:





Hope this has made the hanging more girly and beautiful.

Butterfly & Flowers Baby Mobile

Hello all, I'm back with a butterfly and baby mobile which I made for my daughter (She's 4 months old now!!) She likes to see things which are swaying, so I guess this will draw her attention!!


I bought 2 of the DIY flowers and sparkles mobile kit from Itsy Bitsy, as soon as my daughter was born. But I could't find the time to do it. Recently, I saw a butterfly baby mobile on Etsy. I wanted to do something similar. So I decided to do a baby mobile with flowers and butterfly, in lavender and pink colors, perfect for a baby girl!!


Since I had 2 of the DIY kits, there were a lot of foam flowers in it. Each kit had 2 strings that will form a plus shaped frame for the mobile and it had pink and lavender beads on it. I joined all the 4 strings together and a circle out of it. Then, I punched out butterflies from pink and lavender colored papers and strung in transparent string. There are 2 butterflies in each butterfly hanging, so that, in whatever direction you look, you can see a butterfly.


For the center hanging, I used 4 butterflies - 2 each of pink and lavender colors.

I'm not very satisfied with the result. It looks very naive. This is my first attempt and hope to improve in the future!!

CAS Spring!!

Hello all... I haven't posted in a long time. After the baby, we moved half way around the world to the US.. It took us some time to get settled here with the baby and now we have to look after the baby alone!! So now I get very very limited time to craft. It was very exciting to see snow for the first time and now I'm waiting to see Spring bloom.

Anyway, on to the card!!

I was inspired by the lattice cards that Indira had posted (check them here) and was determined to make one!! And now, especially with the time crunch I'm attracted to CAS cards!! (check my previous one here) So here is my card, inspired by the Spring flowers.




I made a Spring wreath around the round lattice window. I made the flowers using some new punches that I bought recently. I cut the leaves using punches. I couldn't stop myself from adding a cute butterfly, again to show off my newly bought punch :D

I have not added any sentiment. I'm planning to add it as required.

I love how this card has turned out!!

I'm planning to buy a die-cutting/embossing machine in the near future. Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance.

Do tell me your thoughts and comments. Hope to see you soon!

Calendar 2014 - Part 5

Here is the final part of the calendar.

To view the initial parts, please go here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4

I'm not very good at stamping. I had bought a new ink pad from Itsy Bitsy and I wanted to try it. I used the LOTV Christmas Baubles that I had got in LOTV's bithday celebration and colored it using sketch pens and glitter. Not very satisfied with the way I stamped it initially but somehow covered it up ;) Any tips for a stamping newbie??


The poinsettias are made by me using my new Itsy Bitsy flower punch and some golden beads :)



Here is the completed calendar:


The cover page has a scripture verse.


Since this calendar was for my husband, I had to avoid flowers, butterflies and pinks :) He was very happy with this calendar :)

For the month of July, I used small punches to form a frame around the verse and the calendar.


Here is a closer look at the frame.



Satisfied with the result of my first trial of tiling, I decided to do it again with a different patterned paper from Itsy Bitsy. I added faux stitching for added effect.
