DIY Christmas Tree

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas! Today I have a slightly different project for you all; A Christmas tree using some woolen yarn and ice cream sticks and of course some fun miniature ornaments to decorate the tree.

So let’s get started. I made five pompoms of varying sizes and stuck it through an ice cream stick. To achieve the conical shape of the tree, trim the tree down using scissors. Now wrap the tree around with colorful streamers and stick some mini ornaments. Lastly, add some glitter on top of your tree for snowy effect.

Watch the video to see how I made mine and enjoy!

Trick ‘O’ Treat!

In the midst of a busy busy weekend celebrating Diwali, I squeezed in some time for making really fun treat boxes for Halloween; which happened to be less than 24 hours apart. Phew! But I am excited to make some SPOOKTAKULAR treat boxes to treat those kids who are going to knock at our door today. (I caught some of that Halloween lingo too..) I made a few during the weekend and left to make one in front of the camera for you folks. Hope you enjoy this video and get some fun ideas to create such boxes for your neighborhood kids too..

Falling leaves Card

Hi Friends,

Continuing our fall season celebrations, here is a fall card. I have used the maple leaves stamp and distress inks. I have used two different sets of distress inks for the two different cards shown below. One has the smaller maple leaves with veins seen and the other maple leaf stamp is a block stamp. I had a lot of fun making this fall card. You can watch the video below or on my YouTube channel.

Ganesha Art Journal

Hello my crafty friends,

Let me start of the post by saying “Ganpati Bappa Morya. Pudchya varshi lavkar ya”. In today’s video, I share how to make this beautiful Ganesha art journal with striking colors.

I had so much fun making this page using different techniques like die cutting, distress inking, stenciling and paper piecing. I have also used some embellishments to give the project more life and interest.

Baby Series #8

Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #7 post

For those of us who wish we were babies again, remember babies have a busier schedule than most of us. They are the fastest learners and are observing and grasping almost everything they see, touch and smell all at the same time. So let’s take a peek at their busy day lying around while managing to keep their parents on their toes.

Write all about what they love doing, what’s their favorite toy and also their favorite dress. 
On the other side of this we have more dets on the baby’s life, what makes them happy and so on.
This little page opens up to hold pictures and journaling inside.
Stay tuned for the next series post to see more pages from the book.

Baby Series #6

TGIF guys! Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #5 post.

    Today’s layout is all about Mommy & Daddy! Moms & dads have their own little tiffs claiming that the baby has taken after them. This is just a proof for the baby to see for itself, whom he/she has taken after.

The set of questions are identical for both mom and dad. So no fighting over that! The left page says Mommy its you & me and the right says Daddy its you & me.

   I am not going to crowd this post by writing each question here. Just a few should give you the idea.
  • Mommy’s full name 
  • Mommy’s nick name
  • Where was she born
  • Which school did she go to
  • What does mom call me 

The three circles open up and have spaces for journaling and pictures inside. so this layout can hold from 6-12 pictures. You can even stick baby pictures of the parents and the baby showing resemblance.
I have added a little sticker on top of each page saying “So Cute” for mommy and “So Cool” for the daddy page. Below each page, I have added borders of little baby elephants holding on to each other and on the other side its a row of hearts.
Stay tuned for the next series post to see more pages from the book.

Baby Series #5

Happy Hump day! Hope you had fun reading the Baby series #4 post.

Let’s move on to the next pages of the book today. Measuring a baby’s growth is so exciting. You meet any parent (even mine), they will tell you how fast their baby grew up. How tiny you were once and look at you now. If you have said it to someone else about your baby, congratulations, you are already a great parent.
 Do you wanna compare your baby’s growth to how little he/she was when they first came into this world versus today? Today’s double side layout will let you see for yourself.

Let’s go into the details of each page.
Left Page

The title reads  Love Beyond Measure”. Below that is a growth chart with a scale pointing out to each month of the baby’s first year. Of course, I had to put in the Giraffe to show how tall they have grown.

Here’s a closer look at the growth chart.
It has 3 columns with headings weight, length and milestones. All you have to do is write in your baby stats and be amazed at how fast your baby grew up.
     Now coming to the right side of the layout, as I said you can actually see how tiny they were when  you first saw them. 
It is such a simple layout but imagine baby hand and feet prints in each one of those spots. The title is right in the middle and reads “Tiny Blessings”.
That’s it for today. Stay tuned for the next series post to see more pages from the book.
