Memory file folder scrapbooking


Hello Friends,
My journey into crafting began with Scrap booking, mostly documenting my baby's milestones. Over the years it has evolved to book binding and memory album making but I still journalise and document my Life.I follow fewer rules and have adopted to many styles over the period from 12x12 scrap booking layouts to Becky Higgins Project life. 



This time I decided to document this day in my life with Heidi swapp Memory file folder scrap booking way. Though I haven't used her Memory file folder I have made my own inspired by her creation.

In Heidi swapp words -Memory File allows one to create a MEMORY EXPERIENCE. It’s an interactive collection of classic ‘office supply’ file folders, but pretty, that allows plenty of room for multiple photos and plenty of story telling. 

Today I want to show you a classic approach to Memory Files. The possibilities are endless as to how one can create with said Files.



  • I have used a 12x12 double sided pattern paper and given it a score at center 2" making the front smaller than the back and punched using my WRMK 1-2-3 punch.
  •  I have printed out the pictures from that day using my Canon Sephy printer. 
  • I have decorated the front cover with a 6x4 postcard picture and added stamped sentiments from technique Tuesday My Sun & Moon Stamp Set .
  •  The pattern paper used here is from Itsy Bitsy
  • I have used coffee cup stickers from Itsy Bitsy




Inside the Memory file folder I have decorated with the events and pictures clicked as I have shown the close ups here.






I have used a sentiment stamp from MFT BB Somebunny - MFT Stamps set.


Over the end of the page I have created a pocket to hold the lovely tooth picks and coasters that added to the wonderful day out and memories of the place.


The paper nerd and and story teller in me really engages with telling so much of a weekend’s event in one place.


So, if you are like me…have lots of photos. A weekend trip? a story longer than can be found on a single page layout? 


A Memory File approach may be just what you are looking for. Room for lots of photos. Room for lots of journaling. Room to get your story right where it needs to be. Filed away and at your finger tips.


Thanks for sending me so many messages and asking me how I create I have many ways of journaling and documenting tried and tested , hoping to share those here soon. . I shall soon start making some process tutorials to if you wish to know how I made this.

Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog. I love to hear from you & truly appreciate your feedback. Have a crafty day!

Scrapbook layouts with Chipzeb


Hello friends,
I started my paper crafting journey after I entered motherhood ie 9 years back during my pregnancy. I started documenting my journey in my diary and I stumbled upon ways of scrap booking on blogs, since then I have been documenting my life. I document my life and journalise events on monthly basis and store it in a file folder and hence my creations are mostly flat with very little dimensions.


Today I have a layout to share which features my little boy and his new found love for cooking. I have chosen the Kitchen Set Chipzeb for making this layout. You can see how perfectly these chipzeb complement the theme !! I have made use of plenty of paper scraps here for the layout .

I have close ups and more ,You can read more about what all elements went in creating this layout at MUDRA blog Here

The second layout is once again a day in my life , my son rolling chapati. This is his activity as a part of the family dinner , he loves cooking and this month I have been documenting all about it . I will be journalising along this page too but haven't share here for personal reasons. The Kitchen Set Chipzeb had few more pieces I could make use on this layout too.


I have close ups and more ,You can read more about what all elements went in creating this layout at MUDRA blog Here. I truly enjoyed making this creation and thrilled to be experimenting with all that I have. Keeping up with the goals for this year, happy with the crafty creations.

Super kid shaker card

Hello friends, 

This August has been great on the work front and I have been on a creating spree of  Rakhi cards as you can see my earlier posts. To add on to it I had an awesome response to my giveaway of handmade cards as a part of my share handmade kindness drive.
I have shipped out 50 plus cards and handmade gifts till now and more going out wish me luck with this !


Today's creation is a shaker card made with a stenciled background,  When I saw the Diamond Shaker Chipzeb in my DT kit I wanted to make something right then .




How I made this 
  • I have used white card stock from Letzcraft. The card stock is smooth as butter and stamps like a dream as well great with stencil !
  • I have used Diamond deco Stencils from Mudra to create the background with distress ink.
  • The  Diamond Shaker Chipzeb is 2″x2″ and comes with 6 layer shaker +Acetate die-cut and makes a perfect shaker.
  •  I have coloured the inner side of the Chipzeb with distress ink blue to match with the background.
  • The Super girl sentiment perfect to complete the card with and washi tape. 
I enjoy making such cards perfect for gifting have dimensions yet go flat into an envelope! Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog. I love to hear from you & truly appreciate your feedback. Have a crafty day!

Rakhi cards with loads of new ideas

Hello Friends 


Raksha Bandhan means celebrating the unique bond between a brother and a sister... Rakhi is a sacred thread of protection embellished with the love and affection of a sister for her brother. This day of celebration is known as Raksha Bandhan and celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana in India. It falls on 26th August this year.I have a great connection with my brothers and the celebration of this day is no less festive occasion for me. Hence I gear up a month before to prepare for this event. I even have a group of friends who live abroad and want me to send rakhis for their brothers in India and I take up to do that for them as well. 


Here are different cards on the same theme I created this year 


Card 1 -

I have used white smooth card stock from letzcraft to create this card.
For this card I have used sentiments from Mudra craft stamps Rakhi stamp set to create the background .
I have used distress ink and stencil background first on one side and repetitive sentiment stamping technique on the other . I have tried to blend 2 different techniques to create the background for this card.
The center is divided using a washi tape.
The card is layered finally with mudra chipzebs and sticker sentiment as a highlight .



Card 2 
I have used a brown card stock as the base of this card. I have layered it with a pattern paper in blue. I have kept this creation simple with ample sticker layering. This goes out for my Bike loving brother and all the sentiment and stickers are from Itsy Bitsy.


Card 3 
This is a simple single layer card with direct stamping on smooth white cardstock. I have used  Mudra craft stamps Rakhi stamp set to create the scene in this card. Over the corner I have layered the washi tapes in 2 different colours to complete my creation.




Card 4 - 
I have used distress ink and stencil background for one corner of the card and divided it with the card with an washi tape. The card stock is yet again from Letzcraft and the sentiment stamp set is from craftyscrappers.


The inside of the card also I have stamped and I have used my all time favourite Mama Elephant In My Heart stamp set here.



Card 5 

This is a simple single layer card with direct stamping on smooth white cardstock. I have used  Mudra craft stamps Rakhi stamp set to create the scene in this card.


Card 6
This is a simple single layer card with direct stamping on smooth white card stock. I have used  Mudra craft stamps Rakhi stamp set to create the scene in this card.



Card 7

I have used distress ink and stencil background for one corner of the card and divided it with the card with an washi tape. The card stock is yet again from Letzcraft and the sentiment stamp set is from craftyscrappers. I have punched 2 holes and added the rakhi on the front of the card to give it a different look from the earlier creation.


Card 8
This is a simple single layer card with direct stamping on smooth white cardstock. I have used  Mudra craft stamps Rakhi stamp set to create the scene in this card. Over the corner I have layered the washi tape to complete my creation. Tried the same scene and stamp set in 3 different combinations and love how each one turned out !

Baby record album

Hello friends, 
 I'm over Mudra blog today to share inspirations for this month Mudra craft Challenge24, the theme of the challenge is "Create your own embellishment".


Mason jar Shaker Chipzeb comes with a 6 layer High-Quality Chipboard Designer Cuts and an Acetate diecut. A closer look into my creation you can see I have added a sentiment inside along with star shaker elements and created it with 3 layers of chipboard cuts making it thick. I have coloured it with distress ink.  This is one amazing embellishment to add along with the baby theme chipzebs available at Mudra.



I have an accordion fold mini album inside the baby album for documenting pictures of 9 months of pregnancy. For all the details about the products used to make this do head over to the mudra blog!

Bookworm theme framables


Hello Friends, 

I love reading and it's my hobby. I'm raising a reader and I'm proud of the fact that he's a bookworm. Same way I love gifting books and the last time I did I added something special. 


I call these Bookworm theme framables. These are tags that can be framed for the home library!


I created these on a Bristol cardstock, I have stenciled the background with the chosen design and distress inks. I have further added a layer of pattern paper and finally added the sentiments to complete the tag or the Bookworm theme framables.  



I have hand stamped and coloured these bookworms and further fussy cut them to go with the tag.



I truly enjoyed making this creation and thrilled to be experimenting with all that I have. Keeping up with the goals for this year, happy with the crafty creations.
