Love Slider Flip album

Hello friends,
I love creating this mini flip album and try giving it  a twist each time .

You can call this a one sheet wonder mini album as I have used only one single 12x12 cardstock as base of the album.This is a quick and easy project sized 6"x 6"

  • Score the 12x 12 sheet at 6" in the centers then just cut one side to 6"
  • Fold the scored lines and your flip album is ready to be decorated
  • I have used all the different sheets of the  Beary hugs paper pack to decorate each sides of the album
  • The cover of the flip album holds a teddy who slides making it an interactive cover 

For the first flip I have made a pocket and small tags to go along for msgs and decorated it with the chipzeb .

The second layer holds a layout for picture and a beautiful stamped image 

The third opening is more to fill in with pictures 

The fourth and the last flip opens up for more pictures and decorated with a beautiful sentiment 

This is how the whole 6x6 mini flip album with the slider cover looks completed, to fill it up with pictures of  your day of Love !!

Isn't this something you all would love to try :)

Valentines special layered card

Hello friends,

The month of Feb brings in the new breeze and all I can smell and say is Love is in the air <3

Keeping the valentine colours in my mind I wanted to create a card but I didn't want to use the roses !
I went in to use Poinsettia from my christmas collection !! 

The base of this card is a printed kraft card from Itsy bitsy store. 
I have layered the packaging corrugated paper over it in an inch smaller size and added it along double sided foam tape so that it gives a raised look ! 
I am trying to create dimensions here . I have added chipboard swirls for the first layer and over it a die cut oval on which the sentiment sticker "we are in love " stand . 

Till here I was doing good but after that I felt  I was stuck ! Does that happen to you too?? what do you do when this happens?? 

Isn't that frustrating , sigh but I wanted to get this done and so I started browsing through my flower collections for something that would hint me the next step..... Finally the christmas leftover Poinsettia  came to my rescue !! Then the card completely fell in place as I added pearls and rhinestones.

A tough card this was for me but when I completed it I felt worth the Shot !!

Layered Cards with tutorial

Hello Friends ,

I have been experimenting lately with my creations and if you have been watching my blogs over the last few months , 52 weeks 52 crafts has been an amazing journey to explore my potentials for me.... 

In my crafting/ craft blogging life of 7 years I have tried layered cards and people have always appreciated but somehow I never felt the calling for me there . So this was least interest for me but few days back while I was seperating my craft supplies I found some amazing stuffs I have ignored and wanted to put them in use and so again gave a try with Layered cards !

Here is a bonus pictorial for that too :P 

 I started out with a card stock A2 size ie 4x 5.5" when folded  .
For the first layer I began with a pattern paper which I have given a worn out look using my scissors . I use the basic tool and don't own fancy ones for most of my job !

For the layer 2 I have used wall theme chipboard embellishment , I have cut it into pieces and placed it to my satisfaction . I love to play them on the corners .

I have further layered a Die cut shaped pattern paper on it  with double sided foam glue .

Now I decided to do one more layer and used the left out chipboard embellishment in the center

Further I have added Dcwv chipboard flowers and layered it with die cut pattern paper with sentiment 

Finally finished it off with the pink rose buds .

The die I have used is a unbranded die , I have used 2 different sizes from the same set and used my sizzix die cutting machine .

Today is my mom's birthday and this one goes out specially for her :)

Hope you enjoyed the Pictorial of the making of this card as much as I enjoyed making it !

Fairy sparkle cards from Itsy Bitsy

Hello friends 

Today i'm here to share a pictorial of using Fairy sparkle glitters by Itsy Bitsy on my cards !

Just before I left for the christmas vacations these lovely Fairy sparkles were sent out to me from Itsy Bitsy team ! Thanks for being patient with me Rashmi Harish and Harish Closepet , I felt I had almost given up crafting when these Fairy sparkles played the magic on me....Thank you both for having faith in me .

Here are the 3 Fairy sparkles I have used - Rich copper Pale copper, Orange flush along with cards stocks , chipboards , Dcwv chipboard elements and Texture Tack glue all from Itsy Bitsy.

I choose to make cards with chipboard elements as shown in the above pictures .

To begin with I have covered my chipboard elements generously with the Texture tack glue with a brush .  This Texture Tack is designed with a special formula that makes it the perfect glue for your texture elements like glitter, sand, sawdust and more. After you apply texture tack to a surface generously and leave it for about 15 -20 minutes, its tackiness increases making it apt for sticking sequins, seed beads, mixed craft sprinkles and their likes firmly to the surface.

I have done this process with all the chipboard star at once and then decided on which colour sparkle to fill them up with.

The fairy sparkle is a wonderful assortment of glitter elements Ideal for creating gorgeous textures and adding depth to cards, tags, album covers, scrapbook layouts and also for altering glass, paper, cork and other surfaces Can be mixed this with mod podge for a mess free application .

Further for this card I have added a tag element on which I have sprayed Color Splash - Ocean Mist.
I have added elements to go along and played with the star placements and finally decided they shall go with a chipboard brick element.

To complete the card I have added a copper coloured string to the tag and matched it up with a pattern paper for the card to give dimension to the creation . Finally added a sentiment to go with the card , what else than a superstar for  a star creation !!

For the Card 2 

I have again gone with the tag chipboard . On this chipboard tag I have sprayed Color Splash - Lemon Zing and after it dried I have covered the corners with Texture tack glue .
I have used Texture tack glue here that gives me a added advantage of creating texture as seen here . 

I have made sure I dabbed off the excess on the paper before I went ahead with the creation .

I have added Dcwv chipboard element on the glittered base and further added sentiments and a silver glitter heart element to it to complete the look I have gone back to the flowers from the same chipboard collection

I totally enjoyed adding sparkle to my creation and hope you give it a try too !
