A set !

Hi peeps,

We are having a challenge this month at Itsy Bitsy and Crafters Corner which is to "create a set". I wanted to do it differently and so created this beautiful photo frame along with a co-ordinating tag. I have given a very shabby chic feel to it..and love the way it has turned out.

The frame has a lot of details and different elements. Here I go with the pics


               No amount of pictures and editing can do justice to the real beauty of this frame ! The tag looks cute and complements the frame well.


Just a few close ups of the different elements


                                              The butterfly with the wings is handmade . Pretty chipboard border from Itsy Bitsy


The red black tile embellishment in the above pic is handmade. Some "karigari" on the Tim holtz clock stamp !


                                 A mix of flowers from Itsy Bitsy and Crafters Corner

                               Pretty Mulberry flowers and fillers from crafters corner
                                                A complete view of the frame


                                                            Once again, "The Set"

Hope you like it !

The Big 'B' Challenge

Hi ,

I am just not getting back at card making, there is so much more to do than just cards :) And I am totally loving it. Well ,mini albums have always been my fav but this is something I have tried for the first time. It's a wall hanging and came out to be really pretty.


The flower is handmade. There is a lot of Bling , studs, glitter, die cuts, epoxy stickers ,ribbon, flowers, buttons, bows, chipboard . Lots of detailing, and if not too good with pics, it is far better than what I used to click !


There are pearl beads, butterfly, die cut Eiffel tower.


Did you notice the chipboard border?


The ribbon for hanging has some beads too :)


I reserved the complete (and not so nicely clicked) pic for the end, and of course it flaunts three cute little bows.

Hey Peeps,

How are you all doing ? I am having  a great time crafting but lesser time blogging. Have come up with a lot of new stuff which is more updated on my FB page Some Sweet Stuff. Anyway, coming back to the agenda of this post, as I said I had been creating but not posting so this was created around 10 days back for the Itsy Bitsy Tri Color challenge. Each color is significant in its own way and this creation was although inspired from my friend and fellow blogger Mallika, but really reminded me of..."sandese aate hain " from Border :) Check the pics and u'll come to know what I am talking about !



Yes, its a mailing box, can be used to keep a secret or not so secret  message inside ! :D


The other side of the box with handmade flowers. I love how this turned out to be, keeping a minimum of our tri colors !

Easel drawer card

Hey peeps

I have been in love with easel drawer cards lately, they are such a perfect gifting option, 2-in-1, card cum drawer which can be used to pit in a small precious gift ! Keeping my post short and precise, I am having a bad and severe back ache problem..off to sleep after this post !


The roses are handmade, I am addicted to making these on most of my creations !

And now the drawer opened with some beautiful pieces of jewelry.

I am linking this to Yvonne's blog - punched flower challenge from Hussena - These are the same ones for which Hussena has posted a tutorial !
and Snehal's challenge - Box challenge

Hope you like it !

Gute nacht !

A souvenir from Venice

Hi again !

This is not a second post in a day but still its a post on a consecutive day ! Well, I had to share this new creation, its basically recycling of a normal cardboard box, but which carried a very special souvenir from Venice, I bought it from an island there and this is how it was originally contained in a box

And this glass boat I have tell you gave me a real hard time, I had to carry it in my hand bag for the entire journey (not to mention the airport formalities, I had one poor friend who was carrying a similar boat back home and it was broken while in her suitcase !) Well thank god I have it in one piece adorning my show case :) I transformed the box it into something like below


Has it not turned into something so gorgeous, I don't even feel like parting with the box !
The papers are from DCWV, Flowers from Itsy Bitsy - English Roses Vintage small, handmade butterfly,punched leaves, gems and buttons from stash and voila !

Tell me how do you find it ! I would be entering this for
