Love yourself :)

Hello Friends ,

I have been creating cards in sets of 3 this month and this is really helping me feel accomplished as I am able to put in use the stuffs I have bought over the years !


It so happens that I buy stuffs with an idea of making something and when I bring in the stuffs home I am already doing something else or I forget what I wanted to make.... 
Over a period of last 7 years I am hoarding soo many things I dont even remember why I bought it !


I have always followed the minimalist way of creating or doing more with less and its very evident on my creations ! Finally I am using ephemera I have stocked up on !!


I am making as many as possible and using these cards to gift everyone I m visiting in UK as well I am planning all my Happy mails to buddies back in India !


This way I hope to create more , Gift more and satisfy my urge to make and share :) 

This practice  is helping me understand what I really love and what I buy for the love of stationary or its cuteness which is adding up my stack.

I am able to try out all my stuffs and keep only what I would use more or enjoy using .

This is helping me Sort and organise stuffs I will need to keep and what I want to destash or give away !

I would love to hear your ideas on this if you have been doing it too :)





Here in all the 3 cards I have played with pattern papers and owl ephemera and who can resist an owl isnt it ?

5 mintues Journal cards

Hello Friends,

Today I am here continuing my self challenge to play with Stuffs I already own! If you have been following my blog you will see that I began with '52 Weeks, 52 Crafts'a challenge I set out for myself .


Three months ago when we moved to UK I got to carry very few stuffs from India from my crafting stock and always felt I did not own enough to create what I wanted so I challenged myself to put to use all the stuffs I was carrying :) 

In last 90 day I discovered I either own much more than I need or I do very little :)

Card 1


Today I am sharing creations using Journal cards from Kaisercraft  as the focal point and the sentiment stamps from Technique Tuesday  .


I have always used these sentiments and journal cards in my scrapbooks but today wanted to give them a new perspective so made cards out of them ! 



To complete this card I have used rose embellishment and bakers twine for a Bow along with ephemera .

Card 2 



For this card I have used  Journal cards from Kaisercraft as background added the fish tail hand cut tag from a sticker baking 
I have used a die cut tag on which I have used a sentiment to finish the card I have added pearls here !




Card 3


This card is put together purely for the love of colours and matching ephemera


Yes its lot easier to mix and match them and create with them ! 
You can call these quick make or 5min cards that save you at the last moment for the special occasions .

These cards surely show how much I love stickers , Journal cards and all pretty stuffs and how much I have been hoarding all the itty bitty stuffs along with scraps and papers :) 
Since I love them I shall be making sure Im gonna make more out of them wish me luck !!

Mixed media Tags

Hello Friends, 
I just love making my own embellishments , especially those for the detailed scrapbooks. 



It`s becoming an obsession to identify reusable stuff and I keep pushing my creativity out of my comfort zone.



Here I have used scraps of paper on the sticker backing and stained it with Gesso splatters and completed the tag with flowers and sentiments !











 I have created this Mixed media tag created using sticker backing , layered with chipboard and flower embellishments and paint for all the above tags !
