A super fast CD mini

A Super fast CD mini

Firstly SORRY for missing from my blog for toooooooooooooooo long. I have been crafting continuously and my lil cutie pie has started her nursery so its more of studies for me with her plus there are lots of other things going on simultaneously.

Now off to a quick post. A CD mini I did on order almost 3 weeks back that too superrrr se bhi uparrrrrr fastly ( yes yes I somehow remembered Shilpa Shetty saying super se bhi upar .... don't ask why Shilpa Shetty suddenly :P ) But yes I really mean superfast ... flat 3 hours ... :) This was made on an order and the lady who ordered it wanted a boy's theme so here we go ....




The not so girly teddy is hand drawn and fussy cut. Loads of tags for photographs or journal-ling .

The puffy animal stickers are local buy. The fence and grass are hand cut and stained :)

This page is my favorite. Loved the way it turned out. The cars  and the signal post are hand drawn and hand cut. I loved doodling the building outlines in the back ground.

Some more space for journal-ling. I liked the way it turned out looking at the time in which it was completed.

I wish to specially thank and mention Swap Central India here. It was because of them I learnt to put my discarded CD's to an artistic use :)

Watch out this space for a give away shortly and also for loads of my crafting posts :)

Happy Crafting,
Meghna

Citi and Me

Citi and Me

Well .... finally I am back to post something on my blog after soooooooooooo looooooooooong ... It's not that I didn't craft but just was too tied up to post.

Without much rambling here I go.... Last month I got an opportunity to work on a corporate order that too with a company like Citi Bank.. yes Citi bank. They wanted some scrolled certificates for their HR appreciation function. As the quantity was not that big, it would have been impossible to source scrolls that too on an immediate basis. 

So... TADA... I came up with my own scroll... A scrolled looking certificate...


I bought some plywood strips of 1/4"... rolled some handmade papers on it and then added the truffles . The background is embossed and mod-podged to give the frame the shiny effect.


Here are few of those...

Thanks for visiting the page... Cya soon with more craft  stuff ... till then,

Happy Crafting,

Side step .... card

Yes .. My first side step card..

Making a side step card had been long on my to do list but somehow never took off. But thanks to my sister ( in - law ) who pushes my creative genes to try something new everytime.

She wanted a card cum frame to gift to one of her besties .. at the same tme wnted it to be diffrent from the usual cards and frames that we get all around. After scanning through lots of permutations and combinations, I finally decided to make a side step card ... where in I can make a frame as well a card ..

I managed to spoil two 12 x 12 cardstocks before I got the cuts right. I know its a basic step card but with all the simple cards that I had been doing somehow it took time to cut it just till exact point...



The card has a frame to hold a snap plus I ave added an empty tag for messages.

All flowers are handmade :).
My sis-in-law loved the card ...

The challenge was to use Green / blue and neutrals


 I have been crafting a lot but just unable to post.. So lots of new post to be up...

Happy Craftng,

Some pretty flowers...

M back with my second  post for the day :)

Thanks to Jovita who comes out with something new for us everytime giving us awide and reasonable variety to choose from. .. This time it was the beautiful Solar wood flowers ..... These are really beautiful in real.... delicate and crisp.. Loved them Jovi.

I wanted to make something with these beautiful flowers as highlight , which are an absolute beauty in themselves. So I decided to make something with a black silhouette and the flowers as the embellishments.

Again a Pull down card .. ( I think that's what it is called ) .. A simple wedding silhouette ( again hand drawn and hand cut by me ) I have used vellum paper to highlight the bride's and I am super happy with the way it turned out. Used the lovely Solar wood flowers from Jovi's store ....


This is how the card looks when pull opened. It is very similar to an easel card when opened... 



Do visit her store Creativita , if you are looking out for something different ....

Hum Tum

I am in love with this theme.... absolutely ...

This time its the simple movie HUM TUM that has inspired me... Yes ! Now I can say that movie is like okay type but yes its the cartoon characters depicted in the movie  I find too cute .

Here's my Hum Tum 


As usual, everything is hand drawn and painted using Luna Staedtler. These are water soluble color pencils and my favorites. I have been using these since I was in designing college. Some of the regular pencils are reduced to as small as 3" in length but quality wise they are still perfect ... I am actually so proud of my habit of clinging on things. For all these years when I was working I never touched them yet preserved them :)

A close view of my Hum Tum .. I love the naughtiness in the eyes of the guy and the attitude of the girl... :)





So this goes as my second entry for Beyond Grey Challenges # 26

So that's all for now ....

Happy Crafting,

Movie inspired CAS

Yes ...Movie inspired CAS .... Is'nt it an exciting theme to work on ???? 

The moment I read the theme on BGC I knew what I wanted to make. Who doesn't like movies ??? and who doesn't get inspired by these movies... We all very well know these are not true yet at some stage of life we end up connecting some movie or a particular scene to something that happens in our life. Some movies are forgotten ( rather are better forgotten ) before we exit from theaters but some movies are worth remembering .. Everyone has a favorite movie, a favorite scene and so on. So friends, I would like to dedicate this post to one of my favorite movie DDLJ........... I can state 100 + reasons why I love it :)

Without starting to discuss my reasons here is my card ...


I have used the veil and hat from the title.... Here the veil depicts me and the hat depicts my DH .. rather in simple words its a card from a girl to a boy and it can be interchanged in case it is from  a boy to a girl...
Again everything here ( The veil, hat and the fonts are hand drawn ) 


A closer view .. ( Sorry for the poor pics. )

So this card goes as my entry to BGC

Happy Crafting,
