Blog Hop, PTI

February PTI Blog Hop

Hi everybody,
Its PTI blog hop today and this month’s theme isย 
This month we decided to dedicate the Blog Hop to scallops! ย We want to see your best use of scallops,
of any sort, on a project! ย This can include scalloped borders, offset-scallops, stamped scallops,
scalloped mats, scalloped frames, layered scallops, scalloped tags or anything else you can dream up!
You can use dies, patterned scissors or even circle punches in a row to achieve your special look. ย We
are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!
Here is my take on the theme.

I used banner dies to make the scallops on this card. Love the deep offset scallops and that white border. Gives the card a gorgeous dressed feel to it! Happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it too ๐Ÿ™‚

Now off to hop and see other scallop project. Happy hopping!


PTI, Sasya Sketch

Time flies!!!

I really wonder!!! Its Friday already? Gosh! I am worried actually. Looks like before I know I will be old and wrinkly!ย  Tomorrow for example, we have music lessons at 9 to 11 in the morning,ย  cook and eat lunch and go for a birthday party in the afternoon and then to teacher’s committment mass in evening because Aditi sings in the choir. By the time I am back home it will be 8 at night. I will be exhausted and so will the kids. Sunday, is cleaning day! Not very good. I have to slow down somehow but with 2 kids and a busy husband, its not that easy. I will have to try hard, don’t I?
Anyway, what I want to say is that I made a lot of cards, two for challenges, one for DT and one just out of interest on last Sunday. I just did not have the time to share them the entire week. But now is the time to do that. Here they are:
This card I made just like that one day. I want to try out bird cage background and loved it. Hence made a card.ย  Isn’t the cage background beautiful with all those tiny heart shapes ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it.
This oneย  I made for the recent JAI sketch but did not have to time to post it and enter the challenge.
This one is for Sasya sketch #51. Here is a link to the sketch if you want to play. Deadline is Tuesday next week.
This one I made for Embellished Publication call for ribbons. But I was not confident to sent it. So here is the card for you. Love these doily dies from Maya Road.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you like my cards.

Tomorrow I have a card to share for PTI blog hop. So please come back ๐Ÿ™‚

Make it Monday, PTI

Girly You Rock!

Today I have a card share I made for PTI’s Make It Monday – Glitter Strip with Scor Tape.

What I did was alternate glitter strip using scor tape with Retro background stamp for the girly background. I have also used white and pink glitter again alternating. I love this background.The Tag #2 is decorated and stamped with sentiment for the focal point. I loved the end result of this card. Simple yet striking.Thanks for the challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great day!

Birthday cards, CAS, PTI

Birthday card

This a bright cheerful girly birthday card I made on Sunday for my friend’s daughter’s birthday this saturday.I have used CAS sketch # 128

I love the “By the Numbers collection” dies and Big Birthday Wishes stamp set from PTI. The dies are perfect size and the size of the font on the stamp set is big to draw the eyes to the focal point. The large flower is from Prima marketing. Cardstocks from PTI and papers from Cosmo Cricket ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!


My craft space!

Hello everybody,ย 
I don’t know about you but my Sunday and Monday flew very quickly. After Sunday afternoon lunch, life just took over and in a blink of an eye, its Monday evening. Hopefully everything will slow down now. I took some pictures of my craft space and a few cards and was able to edit them just now.
Unfortunately, I could not take pictures of my Sunday lunch and the dessert (which I had promised to show in the past post) because it was all gone by the time I could bring my camera!!! lol! Kids were hungry after they came back from swimming and within minutes all food were gone.ย 
But I have a picture of my craft space. I don’t have a room to myself as its a large study and my DD, my DH and myself share the room. My husband has his office, I have my craft space and my daughter has her piano in there. So here is a picture of my side of the room
Its a bit messy at the moment. Most things are within reachable distance. I bought these IKEA ALEX drawers recently. They are great and fits all my stamps, punches, embossing powders, adhesives…… There is so much space in those drawers. Love it! Next IKEA purchase will be the desk with ALEX!
Can you see my frame high up on the wall? Yes, thats the one I showed on my previous post. I have to make another similar one and hang it below this one. So its work in progress ๐Ÿ™‚ I used to have a display canvas up there on which I displayed my cards but I wanted a change. So I took it down and put up the frame instead.
I also have a cupboard on the righthand side which has more stash in it. So thats pretty much my craft space. I don’t have much as I sold a lot recently. I used to be a scrapbooker before I converted to cardmaker. So I had a lot of pattern papers and embellishments. I used to get lost in the huge pile of stash but I am more in control with what I have.ย  Anyway, this is my first post on my craft space. Hopefully in a few months time, when my new house is built, I can have a craft space which I intend to make it organised and coordinated ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for reading and have a great day ๐Ÿ™‚

Comfort and Cozy

Today I have another frame I made for my craft room. This one is similar to the previous one I made here, only the colors and elements are different. I used Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Challenge- Comfort and Cozy challenge to make this one. Here is the link to the challenge and the inspirational picture for you.
ย Here is my take on the challenge.

I love the colors on the picture straight away and also that it is a comfy home. So I wanted to make a home decor using the colors.ย  I have used rolled felt flowers as an element on the frame to give the cozy feeling. Sentiments like “Live Your Dream” and “Love” are associated with being comfortable and cozy (atleast in my opinion lol!). I also punched out squares from different pattern papers from my scraps and used them to coordinate the colors from the inspirational picture.
Here is the close up all the elements on the frame ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for the inspirational photo and challenge. Had loads of fun making this.ย 
This morning my daughter and myself had fun making pavlova. I am making it for the first time and it turned out lovely. I am also going to make Naan and Punjabi channa masala for lunch. Actually, teaching my friend’s teen daughter to make it. She is a big fan of Indian food and wants to learn how to make Naan and Channa Masala. So watch out for a second post today with yummy picture of food ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a great day!
Make it Monday, PTI

Second card for MIM

I have a second card to share for PTI’s Make It Monday – Vellum Strip Challenge.ย 
I love the larger vellum strip on the bottom which softens the card and I can add more sentiments on it too. I also love this color combination. I got the idea from TV!!! Believe it or not, one afternoon with all the Oprah and Soap Operas running at the background, my eyes caught the dirty blue shirt with green tie and dark brown blazer men wore on these shows. They looked lovely on them. Noted down the color and made use of it on this card ๐Ÿ™‚ I added pink color to draw focus on the centre panel of the card.
Had lots of fun doing this card. Can’t wait to see whats on his Monday!
Have a great day!
Sasya Sketch

Sasya Sketch #50

Morning eveybody,
Its a really lovely day today. Been raining for past 2 days and all is wet and green outside. I love the wet roads, wet green lawns, cloudy and will rain any time yet warm and life slows down dramatically ๐Ÿ™‚ Although I don’t like the humidity, its a whole lot better weather than the hot sunny 45 degree celcius days. Anyway, I have my card I made for Sasya Sketches #50
Here is the link to Sasya Sketch #50 if you want to play the challenge. There is a bonus sketch as well and the prize of course. All the best. Can’t wait to see what you come up ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a great day!

Make It Monday #2

I have a card today I made for PTI’s Make It Monday Challenge – Vellum Sentiment Strip.
I used PTI Mums flower and embossed using lime green embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped on white banner diecut and layered with vellum banner diecut to give a softer look.ย  Just love the color combo.
If you want to participate then here is the link to the Nicole’s Blog.
There is a video showing her sample and prizes to be won too. So all the best ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for stopping by!
Case Study Challenge

Case Study Challenge #26

I am organising my craft area this week and I want a nice frame to keep on top my IKEA Alex drawer. So I used Case Study challenge muse to make one. Here is my frame.
Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the big sentiment, “WISH BIG” Great sentiment to see every day in the craft room. Love the shimmery, glittery black dress form and the green organza ribbon. I love where it sits right now. Could not take a photo as the day is overcast and light is very poor. But will take a photo once the weather improves ๐Ÿ™‚
BTW: I have SU’s pennant die for sale for $60.00 including shipping inside Australia. Email me if you are interested ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks for museย  and I am loving the challenge ๐Ÿ™‚
Have a great day!
