Blogger Recognition Award

Hi friends,
I am excited to share that I have been nominated by Sharada from Happy Momentzz for the Blog Recognition Award. Thank you Sharada!! She blogs about her crafting experiences and there are loads of inspirations. You should definitely check her blog!




When another blogger nominates you for this award, there are a few steps that you need to take to accept:
  • Thank the nominating blogger
  • Write a post about the award
  • Share a story of how and why you started your blog
  • Offer at least two pieces of advice for new bloggers
  • Pass on the nomination to another 15 bloggers
  • Respond to the nominating blogger with a link to this post on their blog
My story....

Now the story on how did I start my blog. Well I was always fascinated by craft and during school days I would draw and paint a lot, experiment with different things including crochet, cross stitch, glass painting, sand art etc. This was all thanks to my mother who herself is a very quick learner and her interests rubbed on to me. However somewhere down the line I lost touch as I got busy with education and job. Few years back I again started crafting on insistence of my friends I started this blog. I really feel it was one of the best things as I got to know so many lovely people and a whole universe of creativity.


Advice....

Blogging is a serious business. There are times I do not post for weeks together due to lulls or any personal reasons but I realize what I miss when I do regular posts. I feel so happy, creative and I think it also helps to become a better person!
So I would definitely suggest to have regular posts. (Which I am trying to do as well :P)

Photography skills are definitely a add on. Again this one is something I am trying to improve upon. But photographs are a very important part of the blog so these have to be excellent.


Other awesome bloggers

It is difficult to list only a few bloggers, but below are some of the awesome ones I have come across.

CASology 5-Year Anniversary BALLOON Blog Hop!

Hi friends,
I am sharing a card today which I had made specifically for the CASology blog hop.


  




I created this couple of days back but somehow missed to post this. So here we go, since the theme is balloon used my balloon stamp(Itsy Bitsy) and colored it with bright brush pen colors. Added the sentiment(SSS) and distressed the edges.



Thank you for visiting!

Slide Pop-up Card

Hi Friends,
For a change today I am sharing something different from the usual simple cards. This one is a slide pop-up card. Usually I stick to single layer or max 2 layer cards, but to enter into few of the challenges I went out of my way to try something new.

Here is the card.


The front is simple with bunch of colorful flowers(Mudra stamps) and burlap border(Itsy Bitsy). Then when we pull the ribbon, the surprise message underneath can be seen and the flowers pop up! 
 The sentiment(SSS) is stamped on smooshed cardstock.



Another look. In the slider card I made a pocket so that any gift card or cash can be given.




Hope you like it and I would love to get feedback on it. Have a happy Friday and happy weekend ahead!


I am sharing the card in following challenges.

Smooshed background card

Hello friends,

Today I plan to share a card with smooshed background. I had this piece of smooshed paper since ages, decided to convert into a card. I have also used patterned paper. I usually don't use PP since I always have this block whenever I take them out for making a card. So finally in a very small way I am using it.

I have kept the smoosh and the sentiment(from SSS) as the highlight and bordered it with PP(from Papericious)


That's it for today, thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day ahead.

I am putting this card in following challenges.
