Musical Birthday Card

This is the last of my backlogged posts...that never got done....This project was made way back...In August...and I didn't blog it....Gaah!!

It was to be for a guy who loved music...and it had to be huge!! so This is a A4 size card...yeah..bigger is always better...or so the clients seem to think!!

Each piece of the guitar is hand traced and cut from a free image on Google.

Background was made with my favorite sprays .. Mistries From Die Cuts and More.
The music stamp is from of their texture stamps...

And I did use real wire for the strings! some beading wire.

The Happy birthday and Rockstar is a die cut...from cuttlebug baby face alpha set.

And the stars are glittered and topped with glossy accents!! The whole guitar has an outline of silver glitter pen!!

Hope you liked this Larger than life card....Do let me know if you have any questions!

See you without any more backlogs! :)

Stencilled..Bonus Class

I'm taking this AWESOME Online Card Class called Stencilled...and it is amazing...beyond amazing...
I have always been intimidated by stencils...and this class makes it look so easy!!

I love the fact that they are willing to share so much of their knowledge... and its not just in classes...even on her regular blog..Jennifer inspires and teaches so much on each and every post.

No one can inspire me like she can....I have to give an example of their large heartedness.... the class runs for 4 days...and most of the videos were shot before the CHA happened. Yet, because there were new products that would work with this class, Jennifer made a bonus video just to share that info..  Show me one person here who has that big of a heart. Anyway...that is digressing from the point...

Here is the first card I made coz, I just had to. Its Jennifer baby...she inspires and I create! This is a CASE of the card she showed on the class today. I wanted to make cards for day 1, and 2 but being a weekend, I just don't find the time!

I just have two stencils...and this is one of them....and I love how the card came about...and its so easy to mass produce!!  After clicking the picture, I saw that the heart was a bit wonky!! ah..what the hell...its handmade!! :D The perfectionist is taking a back seat for a while!!

Base is 6x6 from a card kit on sale at Hypercity!!  Of all the places...200Rs. kits from Itsy bitsy being sold for 40Rs.!! With envelopes! Score!!

I am absolutely in love with my new Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen....this is with the glitter and a layer of glossy accents on top!

To give a faux chipboard look and feel to the die cut, I have layered 5 layers of the die cut...I think you can see under the B, S, O.

Any questions...shoot below!! See  ya soon!!

Loads of supplies have gone into if you need something specific....please email me...

Standing Flip Photo Display Album..

,,,phew!! That was a mouthful of a title!!

So...(do I begin everything with Soooo!!?)  I have challenged myself to blog everything I make before I post pics on facebook...and also to go and comment on at least 10 blogs in a week...more is better....
I feel no one reads blogs these days....its the world of just "Liking" everything and leaving everything else unsaid. I realized that just "likes" don't boost the confidence of a crafter...its the little comments at the end of the post that mean the most....Sure it will take effort on my part...but I'm going to blog more...encourage others to blog more....its more than just sharing your creations...its about sharing who you are and where your creativity comes from!!
Phew...I wanted to say these words since soo long...laziness came in between...not anymore!!

This Photo Display Stand is made from a tutorial from Marla at Lake Avenue Designs..check here for the complete tutorial..  No ribbons, no butterflies, no flowers and no laces... would that make it easy or hard....!! You decide!

I have changed a few things.... My pages measure 6 inches across instead of 5 in the tutorial...I wanted more space...And I made my own base to keep it to follow..

This is how the Album will stand...I adore the sentiments....They are from Technique Tuesday..Incredible...I love Ali Edwards beautiful handwriting fonts!! The main happy birthday is a file from Silhouette store...and the background shape..Couture Creation die from IB Store...Cupcake from PTI

So each page flips over to reveal a photo under it...

Here's the first flip....I've kept the embellishments, the extra nonsense to a minimum...bcoz I wanted the pictures to be the highlight of the album... not my supplies or my dies!

 And this is where the arrow points too..I wanted a cheeky way of saying the sentiment, but hiding the main word at the same time!! I don't know if that makes sense to you!

I loved creating this page...cutting the letters out with my new toy...Silhouette Cameo!! It is awesome!! I mainly wanted it for the titles...I used to get fed up of not having the perfect font dies or the time I would waste in cutting individual alphabets one after the other....This baby is so worth if only I ever cut out alphas all my life!! :p

This photo was so adorable, that it needed its own Polaroid this frame is handcut! yes..I do use the scissors now and then!! :p
Stamps from Lawn silly Valentine....Stars from MFT- Stackable stars

Again embellishments to a minium....the photographs speak a thousand words...and I wanted them to be the focus... The Say Cheese is again cut from the Silhouette Cameo... The red Tabs are MFT bracket die...the are small pullouts for secret messages (wink wink!)
And the last back page....
I wanted something cute and whimsical on the last page...this is the back page. The banner is a SC cut file.. Stars again is a Lawn fawn stamp - Cruising through life.

This is where I made my own changes....The tutorial had a ribbon stand...I made it my own way....

I made this stand and this is how the album will stand.... if you need a tutorial...leave a comment..and I will make one for you...

So this is how the whole album came about...In 3 days...its a record of sorts for me!! :D

Any queries about any supplies or for making it...leave a question with your email...I can't answer if your email isn't connected to your blogger account!

See you with more backlog posts!!
