I hope everyone is doing awesome today. I finally sat down to post my latest creation today. I know I was MIA in action for the past several months due to various reasons and wasn’t scrapbooking much. But, now that I have got everything setup and life is beginning to settle down after the second baby I promise to create and post more often. Continue reading
I hope you all are doing great. Today, I want to post on something which, I feel, is the one common thing among all us crafters – SCRAPS! Continue reading
So, I challenged myself to do a video tutorial on the mini album I posted this week and after a lot of ups and downs, I have finally managed to post my first video tutorial on youtube. Continue reading
Wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day. Today I have a mini album, more of a memory folio, to share with you. I made this using a new collection from “My Mind’s Eye” called “My Story”. This is an absolutely gorgeous collection with such brilliant patterned papers that it is perfect for any occasion. I created a Valentine’s themed album using the 6″X6″ paper pad and I thought the papers worked perfectly together for this theme. I have also used the decorative brads and the sticker sheet.
My Mind’s Eye – My Story Collection
I will do a tutorial on this album later this week. So, do check that out. It’s not a very complicated creation so anyone can make this album from scratch.
For now, I will just post the photos here because I really wanted this album to be posted by Valentine’s Day (I am late!). I hope I am successful in posting the tutorial this week! *Fingers Crossed*
Thank You for visiting. 🙂
Hello everyone! I am posting a creation after a long time.. I think almost after 4 months. We had our second baby 3 months back and we are still getting adjusted to the new addition, hence the delay :). I hope that I am able to create and post more often from now on.
I had this album made long ago but just didn’t get the time to post. Anyways, this is a very simple album made using the Kaisercraft “All that Glitters” 6.5″X6.5″ paper pad and matching die cuts. Just love the patterns and colors on this one and didn’t go heavy on the embellishments.
Collection Used :- Kaisercraft “All that Glitters”
If I am not wrong, I think I got inspired by a tutorial by “papercrafter45” on youtube and some of the pages are created using that tutorial. I hope you all like it. 🙂
Hello again! I hope everyone is having a great day today. Today, I want to share my first photo folio which I created for one of our vacations last year. I used the collection kit called “So Fancy” by Simple Stories. I really loved the vibrant colors of the collection and it went perfectly with the mood of the photographs.
This is my first folio, so I have kept it pretty simple. It measures 8″X9″ and opens in a gatefold style. It has lots of flaps to hold 4″X6″ photographs and also has 2 waterfall arrangements for more photo spots. I hope you like it and thanks for visiting 🙂
Collection Used:- Simple Stories “So Fancy”
Here is the finished folio with photographs.
Hi there, today I want to share an envelope mini album which I created primarily with the collection by Echo Park called “Reflections”. I used only the 6″X6″ paper pad as I didn’t have the other elements from the collection. Also, used some patterned papers from other collections.
Collection Used:- Echo Park “Reflections”
I used a envelope and card set from Typo to create this mini album. The envelopes were a bit too snug for my liking, so I joined 2 envelopes together and used the space in between as the pocket for the card. You can download the tutorial for the envelope base page below.
Envelope Mini Album – Tutorial for Base Page
The album cover and the pages measure 6″x6″. I usually make the chipboard cover slightly wider than the pages, but for this one I decided to do it the same size as my pages since I had some pre-cut chipboard pieces measuring 6″X6″. The binding used for the album is Kathy Orta’s hidden hinge binding system.
Hi again, I also want to share one mini album today which I had created maybe a year back. It is a simple gatefold mini album with some pockets and lots of space for photographs. The insides of the album doesn’t have any embellishments yet, since I haven’t really decided on the photographs which will go inside. I got the idea from Pinterest and tweaked the construction a bit. Believe it or not, it uses just 2-3 sheets of 12X12 paper to construct the base album. I will try to put down the measurements and the construction technique soon, if anyone is interested.
Collection used :- Kaisercraft – “Remember Me”
Hello again, presenting the next layout for the day. The main focus of this page is the beautiful patterned paper by “Webster’s Pages” Beautiful Chic collection (and the photo of course :D). This collection has some of the beautiful papers I have ever seen and I hope to do more justice to those papers in my coming layouts. I did some “fussy cutting” to cut out those beautiful roses from one of the patterned papers and decided to use them as my main embellishments. I have also added some flowers to give some dimension to the page.

Hi there, sharing my second layout today. I tried to use some mixed media techniques on this one but wasn’t very successful. Maybe I will try again with another layout. Although, my mixed media techniques aren’t really visible here, I am quite happy with this layout. I used patterned paper strips to create a fun background for my page and used simple embellishments to decorate it. The main patterned paper used in the background was so beautiful by itself, that I didn’t have to embellish a lot. I am still learning the mixed media techniques, and hope to use them soon on my layouts so that I can take them to another level.
