Baby Announcement Card

Namaste Guys

I made a New born Baby Announcement card I did it like a little tray with the baby's initials. I also created an extra little tag that tucks in the back for the written matter

I used the fabulous collection from Bluefern studios to create this card.

Prima Time Traveller Junk Journal

Namaste Guys
Made with the Gorgeous Collection  Time Traveller a travel journal created from scratch I designed the pages in typical journal signature style. This journal has 6 signatures that have been created using Cardstock, pattern paper and parchment paper. I also used the Ephemera and the ATC's to add interest to the numerous pockets and envelopes of this journal.

The idea was to create a Scrapbook and Journal hybrid that has places for photos and lots of room for writing as well as tons of tuck spaces for tickets , memorabilia and pretty much anything one wants to save from their trip bill, maps, etc

The cover looks like a a vintage book and all the metal embellishments are high quality products for added effect. The spine contains a lovely latch and a few charms.

Hello there, crafty friends!

I have a quick project share for you--and again, it is Kaisercraft! This is my second guest DT project for If you have not checked out Ashmita's beautiful craft supply store yet, I absolutely recommend you do! 

I used a 12x12 paper pack and sticker sheet for this album (and again, used very few embellishments from outside the pack.) and I still have four full sheets left! Well, you may accuse me of being stingy with them but I promise I am holding on to a few of these papers because I plan to come back with more project ideas with these! OK that's enough about my frugality with pattern paper (especially Kaisercraft)...on to today's project.

Why Lake House? Well, it's the monsoons here in India--I've always associated the rains and gray skies with romantic melancholy, and the weather got me in the mood for a romantic album. This collection reminded me of overgrown gardens and desolate mansions (straight out of a Gothic romance) and seemed perfect for the season! I can use it for couple pictures, maybe! Hah!

If you have been following my blog/FB page you must have noticed vertical albums aren't my thing--I am not a fan because of multiple reasons: I prefer square and landscape albums design-wise, I find these large vertical albums exhausting to sustain creativity for, and the usual 12 sheets of pattern paper that you get in exclusive designer paper packs are not enough for most vertical albums. 

I still went with these dimensions because of this one thing--the floral fountain sticker! OMG, I am still in love with it! Isn't it gorgeous! There was not way I was going to cut that up!

The album cover measures 6x8 inches and the pages are 5x7 inches. 

That's a Tim Holtz book plate on the spine--I've stayed away from a charm dangle because I did not want the focus to shift from the shadow box lookalike front cover...which I had been planning ever since I saw the fountain sticker! Now, it's a different story that after putting it together and sealing it up I thought of a number of other ways of making/decorating the cover :/

Isn't this pattern gorgeous? I loved it!

Here are a few pictures of the pages--there are two page styles, alternated. 

For the multiple-pocket-flap page, I have followed a tutorial by Super Happy Scrapper on YouTube. You can view it here.

I have left the inner flaps bare as of now because I am not sure what size the photo mats should be--it'll depend on which pics I plan to use finally :D Also because this paper is so pretty!

I used a Couture Creations Intricutz Die for the borders here--I did not want to adhere them down but they seemed too flimsy to be used as pockets.

The borders are from the sticker sheet. I made the flowers using a Sizzix flower and leaf die and Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies (I used the two smaller petals only). Ah! the joy of a new tool/die!

This is the FIRST time that I left the inside covers of an album bare! I wanted this to be a clean and simple album because the cover can seem little over the top! ;)

Thank you so much for stopping by today--let me know how you liked my project. I should have the video flip-through up soon! Watch this space :)

"Sew Precious" interactive mini album feat. Kaisercraft Needle and Thread papers--Guest DT project for Artsomecraft

Namaste guys

She is using the collection Needle and threads from Kaisercraft .

over to Suchismita..
Hello there, friends!

It's a cold and drizzly monsoon morning here in Hyderabad and I have the perfect little mini album to share with you before I head to work--it is all things old-worldly and charming. It exudes the scent of warm and indulgent grandmums with their sewing boxes which were often upcycled chocolate or cookie tins--containing a lifetime of ephemera, not always to do with sewing strictly. :)

I have been in love with Kaisercraft ever since I started crafting, and when Ashmita Roy of Artsomecraft sent over two fabulous Kaisercraft collections for me to work on--well, (to use the cliche) she had me at "hello!". I would obviously like to mention here that I absolutely adore Ashmita's creative style and when she said she was about to start a store, I jumped with joy! I am thrilled to be creating for her brand. Do check out for fabulous craft supplies.

So here it is, my first guest DT project ever! 

And here are the rest of the stills: 

I have kept off flowers and lace for this album (you can imagine how tough that must have been for me!) because I wanted the papers to take centerstage. They are lovely papers and look gorgeous even without embellishment. On the cover are stickers and alpha from the sticker sheet--the dressform you see on the top right hand corner is from a separate pack of vintage stickers.

I created four page units. The style is similar to Ginger's 'Twas the night before Christmas mini album (linked under my Youtube video)--if you follow my blog, you know by now how much I LOVE that page style. This time around, though, I wanted a smaller album so I scaled the pages down to 4x5 inches from the original 5x6 inches that Ginger teaches us. And I sealed the flap in to form a top-loading pocket :)

The Fabriano Elle Erre cardstock in Onice (also from Artsomecraft) suited these papers well. The cardstock is just the right weight for interactive pages--it is thick enough to hold shape, and not too thick for complex page builds. I used American Crafts textured cardstock on most projects until now, and I love that too--but it is so much easier to find more colors in Fabriano on

Here are detailed pics of the page spreads (please excuse the tools, my display stand is not ready yet...meh):

The front inside cover has a clear acetate pocket (upcycled packaging) which holds a library pocket insert. I show the flip through in my project share video. This insert was inspired by Papercrafter45 on Youtube. I modified it considerably though--some of it by design and some by accident :D I will link the tutorial on my Youtube channel.

I inked around the edges using Ranger's Distress Ink in Antique Linen--I've had this ink pad for a while but this is the first time I used it for an album--guess it's the Onice cardstock base which suited the color well :)

Made a vertical waterfall for the back inside cover.

Here's a picture of the album with all the tags and the insert.

Here's how the insert folds out:

Ohh, those vintage roses...and the lovely ladies too <3

So that was my Kaisercraft Needle and Thread interactive mini album for

Loved this pattern on the backk....

Hope you guys liked this project share. Do leave your comments below--I'd love to hear from you. :)

More soon!
