Quilled name plate

Hey everyone!!
Today I am here to share a quilled name plate I made for December DT post for Indian Quilling Challenge group. This month the theme is to work with your favorite technique.
I have a few favorite quilling techniques. I have tried to use some of my favorite techniques. Quillography being my most favorite technique I tried to use this technique hence I have made a nameplate for my house. I have used 3mm quilling strips to make this nameplate, lavender being my favorite color too I used same in my project. The font used for name is Alexandra script. The other favorites are flowers. These are my favorite quilling flowers.

I hope you all will like my project and it will give you some inspiration to participate in our ongoing challenge.

Show and tell- different seasons!!

Hey everyone!!!
Long time, no see!!! I know, sorry for being MIA. anyways, now I am here, let me tell you I really had a tough time with my daughter's holidays homework this summer. kids these days get so many projects that its us the parents who are on our toes. So I thought I should share my experiences of doing projects for my daughter with my lovely readers. hence, I am starting with a series about the kids projects on my blog. Every now and then I will share the projects I am doing for kids. First in the series is show and tell competition. Every parent has to make props for show and tell competition at school. Usually School gives you topic and the child has to speak about the given topic using some props. 
It was my daughter's show and tell competition at school yesterday. 
Topic given was: I am thankful....  
Class: KG/Prep
Age group: 2-4 years
We chose the topic: I am thankful to God for different seasons. As my daughter knows about different seasons. we chose summer, winters and rain. I do not know how she performed but the teacher liked the props and kept at school. I don't expect her to speak a lot but even if she stands confidently in front of mike I am happy with that too. So, Sharing with you all the pictures of the props we made:

 for summers we have shown butterfly, icecream, fruits, juice, flowers. we have used the puffy stickers from market, icecream is made with paper and pom poms.

for winters we have shown snow man, hot soup, jacket, muffler, cap and orange. used stickers, print outs and for snow man used cotton. 

for rain we have shown rainbow, clouds, umbrella, frog etc. 
Little Vrinda helped me pasting all the stuff and this way she could remember some of her lines.
update:  Vrinda got best presentation for this competition. 
So thats it for today!!!
I hope you liked the post.

Mix media mural

Hello everyone!!
Okay so a second post in a day. Lately I am trying my hands on new arts and crafts. For so long I wanted to try mix media murals. I love how they stand out and you can achieve many looks with some basic supplies. So I had carpenter at my home for some work and I rescued one abandoned piece of plywood and got the base board done from carpenter. I used cermaic powder to give various textures to the base. The Ganesha on leaf is also handmade with white m-seal. I hope you all will like my first attempt on making mix media mural.
The coloring is done using fevicryl fabric colors. I hope to make many more and improve.

Engagement explosion box

Hey everyone!!
I hope all of you are well hydrated and keeping well as temperature is rising and making it very hot. Unfortunately the hot weather took a toll on me and my daughter. Hence I didn't get much time to craft. I have recently made an engagement theme explosion box on order. It was gift from a friend who is couple's best friend. We discussed and finalized the color combination gold and white. And I am in total love with this. 

I have made the faux rings with paper strips and coloured them with viva dcor inka gold. The gold and white card stock I precured locally. The faux paper cake is total stunner I love how red flowers sit beautifully on white n gold cake. The hearts are made to pop in air using acetate sheet. The congratulations quotes are printed on white card stock and then cut using spellbinders die. the lower panel of the box is having pics of the couple. 

I hope you like this box as much as I do.

Altered pen stand- tutorial

Hey everyone!!
How are you all doing?? recently my cousin got me a pack of zig brush pens from US. A pack of 60!!! As I eagerly waited for them to arrive, I wanted to have a nice pen stand to keep them organized too. So I started my search for a appropriate pen stand or organizer for storing them. I found a rotating pen stand with my local stationary guy and he was generous enough to give me that for free. :)
This is how it looked:

This is the final outcome:

I completely love the final outcome!! all my 60 zig brush pens fit into this, it has good capacity. It can surely hold a few more things. I am planning to store my water brushes too in it.

A few more pictures:

Now comes the tutorial part. Its my first attempt for a tutorial please be kind.
material required:
Box to alter
Pattern papers ( I have used Bob n betty's paper, its an Indian brand)
coordinating acrylic color
Step 1:
first of all Clean your box thouroughly to remove all the labels and glue. I have kept this box in soapy water and then scrubbed all the paper and glue with steel wool.
Step 2:
Now measure the dimensions of your box and cut the pattern paper accordingly. My box measured 5.5"*3". I have cut 4 papers of the required size.

Step 3:
Adhere these papers to all the four sides of the box.
Step 4:
paint the box from inside. I have used fevicryl acrylic color in contrasting hot pink pearl color. I love how it goes with the pink flowers of the pattern paper.
Step 5:
Embellish it as you like.
I wanted to give it a look of a girl in flower garden. I have colored tilda from magnolia stamps using camelin brush pens.
I adhered a lace on the edges and on the front side half paper doily to give a background where I can place my beautiful colored and fussy cut tilda.
I used a few flowers from I am roses and the butterfly is die cut using cheery lyn die. I have colored the die cut teal and applied glitter. Oh! I am completely in love with the butterfly.
I have also given some texture on all the other sides using TCW butterly stencil and viva decor Inka gold in old gold.
I hope you will like my project!!

(anything goes)

Baby Boy Scrapbook

Hey friends,
Today I am sharing a baby boy scrapbook I have recently made for my nephew. My cousin has come from USA and I went market to search for some gift options for her little one who is just 7 months old. After searching a lot the idea of making handmade gift clicked. And to tell you all this is my first baby boy album as till now I have only made baby girls albums. This is the project which I did in shortest possible time, it took almost 10 hours to finish this one. Generally I take at least a week's time to make scrapbooks. Here are the pictures, Phone pics again.. :(
It looked very cute in person, and was a total hit :)
I just realized that I do not have the cover pic of this album :( will update it asap!!

This is this first page when we open the album.

  first page to welcome the baby!!!
 Mom and Dad!!!
 This page opens up and has birth stats journalling page.

This is the waterfall page to add all the first pictures of baby like smile, first step, first tooth etc.

 Page to have all the namkaran details..

 This page is an accordion fold one, the pages are there to store pics of the baby growing up.

 one more page to hold the baby's favorites.

 on the back cover inside I gave one pocket to hold the wish tags, which the parents can get filled from their guests on baby's first birthday.

supplies used:
All the papers used are DCVW baby boy stack and Papericious baby boy stack. I love how both these stacks gel up to make a beautiful product.
The baby sentiments are printable I got from internet.
The puffy stickers i got from local stationary shop.

I hope you liked the album.

Oh.. my mouth is watering just hearing the names of the delicious fruits. You guys also keep yourself hydrated with the water rich fruits and drinks and stay cool.
I am late this month in posting the IQCG DT post. I am so sorry for that. Shylaa was sweet enough to forgive me for that. Thanks Shylaa. 
So, our challenge of this month at Indian Quilling Challenge group is color trio. We have to use only three colors in our quilling embellishments.

I hope you all will like this tag.

I have made the background with the distress inks, and stamped with script stamp from Kaisercraft with versamark dazzle ink. The quote is also Kaiser-craft stamp and stamped with hero arts black ink.

Birthday card

Hello everyone,
I am here with a new card I made on order. It was from a friend to another on her birthday. I was going mad with a lot of ideas in my mind. Its really difficult to choose and stick to one idea when client leaves everything on you, but then I stuck to the easel card. I quite liked the easel card I made earlier. Hence this is similar to earlier easel card I shared but a bit more elaborate with the die cuts and all.

I have mounted the die cuts on craft foam to give them a 3d effect.

I hope you like my effort.

Altered Clock

Hey folks,
Today I am here to share an upcycled project. We have a new challenge at IQCG and theme for this month is to recycle or altered art.

In my project i have recycled a cake base. I have used cake base as the base of my clock. I pasted cardstock over it and then using stencil made the background.
After adding clock dial and a lot of quilling flowers the cake base is completely transformed into a beautiful wall clock. I am in love with the outcome. I am sorry for bad pics though as my camera broke and these are mobile pics taken inside.

I hope you will like my project!!!

I hope you all like my attempt for the challenge and are inspired enough to participate in our ongoing challenge. Be sure to visit my fellow DT blogs' for more inspiration.

hey everyone!!
Just a few days back I got this cute cupcake stamp set from a dear fellow crafter on destash and my hands were itching to use these cute cupcakes.
I am not much of a Clean and Simple card maker, so I wanted to try CAS card.
I stamped the cupcakes on the neenah watercolor cardstock and watercolored them using nirmal watercolors which my dear friend Tejal sent me.
The background is also colored using same colors.
