PTI Swap Card and Card Candy

These are the card and card candy that I did for PTI Swap on SCS Hosted by Shannon. I had so much fun making the card candy.

I used the PTI Doily Details die for one of the card candy and I found out that it is definitely easier if you use the metal shim in cuttlebug. And plus after removing the die cut from the die, if there are any paper pieces stuck to the die, you have to remove them completely before reusing the die again, otherwise it does not cut properly.

Wedding Reception - Timed Title

Hello Friends, I made it to Round 3 of "So you think you can scrap" challenge on Colorful Creations. Yoohoo!!

This week's challenge was to create a layout where the title is the actual Time!!! This was indeed a challenge and the more I thought about it, I wanted to use a picture from our wedding and I loved this particular photo from our wedding reception.

I took inspiration from the color of my saree and did the layout with blues and golds. The challenge also involved using a sketch and I just loved the sketch as well. Overall, I am very happy with this layout. I know have a new way of titling the scrapbook pages - use the actual date or time of the event. Neat indeed!!

Bella - Our Best Friend

This is just a random layout that I created with some of the Bazzill Basics Cardstock scrap that I had. These are pictures that we took during Akshay's visit to Dallas. Sadly, we did not take any pictures with him. Next time :)

This is the most simple page I have done so far with just card stock and no patterned papers. I kept the embellishments also minimal, just a simple chipboard sticker.

Love Project Life

This is the 2nd week of "So You think you can scrap" Challenge over at Color Creations. I am happy that I made into 2nd round :)

The challenge for 2nd round is to create a two page layout by creating a mirror image of a sketch and also to use black for your background. 

I created this two page LO with the pictures of Project Life - I mean the actual kit. I was so excited about it, so I had to create a page with these pictures. I found some really nice MME Lost and Found patterned papers at Hobby Lobby. So was quite excited to use this black and white polka dot paper with this challenge.

Here is the sketch that I used for this LO,

Fetch and Fun!!

I had done this layout for the Color Creations "You think you can scrap" challenge, but since we could enter only one layout, I ended up entering the other layout. But I just loved how this layout turned out, So, I wanted to go ahead and share this.

These are pictures of Bella from Grapevine Lake and she loved fetching this twig from the water and playing with it.
Here are some close up's of the flag and the flower that I created as DIY Embellishments,

The Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC98

2nd post for the day. Please click here or scroll down to see the post for 4x6 photo love class post.

I did this layout for The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC98 - to use the two different variants of blue and mustard/yellow. This is a picture of Bella from a few months back. For a change, she was sitting happily and posing for me and I just love this picture and had to create a LO with it.

I also tried a new thing with this layout, I used the Glimmer mist and sprinkled some ink on the page. Although it did not turn out exactly as I had imagined, not too bad I guess for my first try. I did not spray the mist, but just sprinkled it.

Here are the PDCC98 colors,

I used the Pencil Lines Sketch #251 for this challenge. Here is the sketch,

Brenham Downtown

I did another layout with our pictures from the Brenham Trip. I did this layout for the 4x6 photo love August class on taught by Shimelle Laine.

Basically I cut the first page by 4 inches along with the page protector and then sewed both the cut and the full 12x12 page protectors together to keep the photos/layouts together. I loved this idea for layouts with multiple photos. Since, I did not have to cut any photos, I could put this layout together very quickly. Also, I used the tip from Shimelle's video about cutting a border sticker and using it in two places.

This is how the page looks when they are open, (sorry for my storage view in the background),

New Home card

I wanted to share this card that I did for my friend's house warming party. I love this board and beams set from PTI. It was one of my initial stamp purchases from them. I do wish they did a few dies for this set.

I stamped the home image in black memento ink, colored it with copics and then cut it out. I then stamped the fence on the card stock, added the cut out home and tree image. Sentiment and ribbon completed the card. I some how liked how this card turned out.

Vacation time at Universal Studios

Hello Friends, Back with a post after a long time. I am participating in the -"So You Think You Can Scrap" challenge over at Colorful Creations. The first week's challenge was to create a layout with two different do it your own embellishments.

I did a pin of my own using some beads and pearls. I also did the butterfly embellishment using some PTI felt and gem stones (This was inspired by the Card Candy that Michele had done a while ago).

This is a picture of my mom at Universal Studios during their visit here in 2007. I just loved this colorful picture and had to create a LO with it. Papers are from stash and the chipboard title is also from Stash. I kept the LO Simple with focus on photo and journaling.
