Am back here sooner than you and I thought! 😀 Oh well! Seems I will not be around to either bake or craft for a few weeks so might as well make the most of it now! 🙂
My second son has graduated to the middle school as of this month. And a couple of moms requested me to make a card for the class teacher who was with them for three years in a row 🙂 I decided on a layout rather than a card and here’s what I made 🙂
Sorry about the pic with the plastic cover on! Remembered to take a pic just before I was rushing off to school! 😀
Made this for the class teacher. Used PTI seed packet die as pockets for each child of the class to write a small note for the teacher 🙂 The kids were excited about it and as you can see, some were quite colorful about it! The grateful is the PTI words die and mulberry roses. Base paper is Studio Calico.
The teacher came to me and said that the kids managed to keep the whole process a surprise and she was quite taken in with the whole thing. She actually broke down in class and said she got very emotional and was touched by the gesture 🙂 Yes!
I also made another LO for the primary Principal and the rest of the staff 🙂
Used a lovely MAMBI embossed papers (the whole stack of it which I bought more than 2 years back but have not used but a couple of sheets from it! Such pretty papers! :P) and left it simple for the paper to take center stage. Again, words die cut and stamps from Darcies’s.
As my dear friend, Priya mentioned, we are having a sale cum exhibition this weekend and so working towards it! Amongst other things 🙂 So much to do…..lots of crafting to go before we sleep! 😀
Thanks for swinging by and have a great week!
Yello people! Hope you missed me while I was gone! 😛
Life was crazy these past weeks….tests, exams, school drop and pick ups, holidays (had a blast with an out of town trip too!), thread-thin help at home…..nothing very unusual! 😀 But we muddled along all of it and here I am with an album I made for a year-old baby girl. The request was for a month-wise album and so here goes!
Kept the cover rather simple for a baby album I realized 🙂 Used mulberry flowers from Priya Sivaraj’s store and papers from my stash (Papermania and Echo Park). My new fav die is the chevron die from MFT also from Priya 🙂 Been used quite a bit in this album as you will see!
A lot of the embellies from K and Company die cuts, most of the sentiments from Fiskars Baby stamp, and the super cute teddies from a paper pack (from Forever Friends) called Hugs and Cuddles 🙂
It is soooooo hot here now that it takes a lot of energy just to do something! 🙂 Will be a bit slow over the next few months also considering summer is now truly set in and the kids will be off school too. Planning some baking and craft classes over the next few weeks so will be busy with that! Hoping the power situation is not too bad…..considering poor souls in other parts of our state having to swelter it out!
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment! Appreciate it! 🙂
A quick post to share an album that Priya Venkat and I made a while back. We got the specifics and other details in person as the lady ordering the album was from out of town. Now, we had not cleared the issue of final hand over. And so we thought we would wait till we heard from the lady. And she called one morning to say she is coming into town, could she please pick up the album?!?!?! Priya and I then sat and worked on this together and it came about in a few hours time! We had a blast spending time together and having my sister also put in her two bits of criticism and supplied us with tea and munchies! 🙂
By the looks of it, it is one of the earlier albums we made. It was actually quite colorful and very CAS in style! Considering it got done in just a few hours, it turned out quite nice, if I may say so myself! 🙂 And the pictures were taken in the car, on the way to hand over! 😀
We obviously did not have the time to embellish it too much and kept the focus on the sentiments. A satisfying project that turned out beautiful in the end! 🙂 All izzzz well….!
Thank you for stopping by! And have a great weekend! 🙂
Just noticed that it has been two weeks since I posted here last! But I did have term tests and exams to deal with during this time and so took a break. I did do some crafting and baking but did not have the time to take pictures and post it. My bakes first of all just disappeared before I could get my camera and my crafting was at an easy and gentle pace 🙂 I have since made four cakes on order for friends and their kids (all chocolate – but of course!) but did not take any pictures before I gave them 😦 Silly me but then there is always a next time! 🙂
Today, I wanted to share with you an album made on order, with family portrait pictures. Since Paperz! had already made a few albums for this client, we decided to do it a bit different and have quilling as the main way of embellishing it. Have a look! 🙂
This was the cover page and I added a whole bunch of quilled flowers and some dies from Memory Box and Marianne with some leaf punches. Priya Venkat kindly added the letters for me 🙂 Used papers from K & Company, a whole range of lines that my cousin very sweetly got for me – a pack of 3o0 sheets! 🙂 I know I know….Bless her!
Since all pages has pictures, not showing you most of them. Just a highlight view 🙂 Used a range of sentiment stamps too for this one – Ali Edwards, Unity, Darcie’s, stickers….you get the drift! 🙂
I thoroughly enjoyed making this album as it is very different to what Paperz! usually has made! Thank you Priya Venkat for your help! 🙂 And thanks to all of you who peek in and leave comments!
Have a great weekend!
