And again an explosion ... of love and more LOVE :)

Yes.. That's another explosion box made on order. It was a valentine's gift from a girl to her fiancee. She wanted something different from the regular cards , she wanted space to scribble her messages , she wanted some space where she can insert some pics and last but not the least if possible a small box to hold the gift ...

After much thinking I came up with this explosion box that has space to hold pictures, space to write messages and small box of 2" x 2" x 1.5"  that can hold a gift and yes at the same time it is something which is still not available across all the gift shops.

 This is how it looks .... I personally feel adding a bow to anything enhances its beauty further :)

 A hundred hearts would be too few, to carry all my love for you ..... I love the sentiment :) 
 The red flowers are from the kit I won on Kavitha"s blog " For the love of Crafting " which was sponsored by Shalini's Crafter's Corner ... Thank you ladies... the flower's are so awesome .

Well, That's box no 1 when opened . It has two layer's . ( I forgot to click the outer layer :( )
 The outer layer has scallop shaped windows to insert the pictures . The inner layer's has tag's to enable one scribble the messages .

A closer look of the box # 2 that is inside the main box .....

That's the third layer inside the box # 2 ... Stamped hearts and messages ...

A closer look :)
Die cut hearts and messages :)

The Heart and bow you see in the above image is actually the lid of the third box that can hold the gift :)

And finally ...... 

The girl who ordered the box and the receiver were happy and thrilled to have this box which was very unique for them both .

Stay tuned in .. Lots of posts to follow...

Also I will be uploading the video of this box very soon... 

Till then,

Happy crafting,

Totally handmade ..... For someone very special

As every year my mind was working overtime to decide on what to gift my dear DH on the Valentines Day.... It was surely going to be something made by me in addition to the other gifts. Finally I decided to make a completely handmade card . I had few strong reasons ( which I myself decided were good enough :) for deciding on this .. Firstly I was short of  time as it was already late evening and I just had few hours before my DH returned from office . Second but very strong reason was drawing is my first love ... yes, I can draw and paint endlessly if I get continuous time and third and most important was there would be no mess as all I needed was few card-stocks ,my color pens , scissors and two way tape ... yes that"s it !

So finally I came up with this silhouette... Yes its totally hand drawn ( I can show you the mistakes :) ) .. It was a really quick card and yes my DH loved it :)

I was short of time as I wanted to wind it up before my DH returned and had a die cut border ready ... So to fill in the space I added the border ..

I loved the way it turned out .... that too with out any mess and in flat 30 minutes ...
The sentiments  too are  handwritten ...

I don't know if this card qualifies but anyways linking it to Beyond Grey Challenges ... 

Happy Crafting,
