Cards made for a school project

Summer home-work for my son involved making 10-15 greeting cards. These cards were made in August and I so totally forgot to post this. My son’s contribution to making these cards was gluing some of the pieces. That’s all. Lets just say craft and him are a long ways away. They are most definitely not friends. I dont think they were being marked for this, so I felt less guilt about being the one making these cards.

Here are some of them…….

Very simple and CAS. And since I have to make the most of this jackpot of finding pics of 15 cards…………’ll see them in three different posts.

That’s all for today. Stay tuned for more……………



Finally…… on the menu!

Made a few cards recently…… to use up the scraps actually.

Here’s one that uses Crate Paper scraps…………………….

Shobana had made this above card as a CAS Valentines card. A customer picked it coz she loved the heart border at the bottom……only she wanted more ‘stuff’ on it. So I embellished it further with the butterfly paper and ‘Miss U’ stickers etc.

My husband wanted a few Wedding cards……….this was one of the bunch that I made. Nestled it among the green leaves in my garden for the picture. I find the outside the best place to take pictures ….especially in the evenings, when the glare of the sun is gone but the brightness still remains.

What’s your best place to take pictures of your cards?


Crate paper 5×7 mini album

This album is made exclusively with Crate Paper’s beautiful papers and embellishments. Very bright and cheery looking. It was for a tween girl, a gift for her birthday.

Have a look……………………..

More albums are being made here at home, so I will have lot more to show you in the coming days………

Paperz! has a show coming up in December and Shobana and I are getting stuff ready for it. In the midst of all that, we are scrambling to finish a few orders too.

I also want to mention a few people I have been ordering stuff from…………………

—– Washi tapes from Karuna– beautifully packed (I was very impressed)  and prompt service……she didnt wait for my payment, just mailed the goodies right away.

—–Fabric tapes and some washis too from Rachana– once again very good service and a special mention for accomodating a difficult request of mine which ended up in delayed payment. Thank you for your patience Rachana.

—– Dies and paper pad from Priya Sivaraj– since Priya lives so close to my house I got to visit her and pick up my goodies too. Let her know what you want and she will get it for you as soon as she can. She added a few quilled ear-rings as gifts for my daughter and a vinyl sticker sheet for me. Many thanks Priya.

Please do support our fellow crafter friends, who go to the trouble of ordering and stocking and generally doing the difficult work so that we have it easy.

Have a nice day everyone!


Needless to say My Mind’s Eye (MME) is one of my all time favourite manufacturer of scrapbook products. I love their innovative designs and their  products are stellar in their quality. I recently purchased more MME goodness and have been creating up a storm. Paperz has a major exhibition coming up and we need to stock up on our creations. This album exclusively uses Follow Your Heart papers, the stickers and chipboard die cuts coordinate with the same line. The butterfly and flower die cuts were a RAK from Leah Killian. The flourish die is by MFT’s Die-namics (on loan from Shobana) Also Shobana, thanks for sharing the fabric ribbons too.

Here’s the cover page………………..

And here are the inside pages……………….

I seem to have lost the rest of the ‘inside page’ pictures. Will take some more and re- post in a few days. Enjoy these pics till then.

MME’s Sweetest Thing is one of my recent paper purchases and it stands true to its name. I love the papers and the matching embellies. I am so in love with the line that I havent plucked up the courage to put my scissors on the papers. I am in the ogling stage still. I’m dying to make a mini with those papers. My daughter wants one for her 10th birthday (which is fast approaching) and I think I shall use the Sweetest Thing papers for that (kinda appropriate, coz my daughter is really THE sweetest little thing)

This is what I am working on right now:

—–I have been making more minis these past few days. Will post them as soon as I get them bound.

—– Also working on some cards (finally!!!) for an art class at my children’s school.

—–A few last minute diwali paper crafts

—–Yet to make 15 elaborate book marks requested by my sons teacher

So, life’s busy……. lotsa things happpening……… a few sad, a few happy and the rest of the events falling in between. Squeezing in some time to blog in the midst of all this.

Thank you all for stopping by. I truly appreciate it.
