Recently, I received my box from Sizzix containing the dies from Chapter 4 release. Exactly what I needed to get my almost-vanished mojo back after almost 5 months.

 I decided to use the Sizzix thinlits Scattered hearts die(#662599) to make one card but I actually ended up making two ! I realized that the best way to get the creative juices flowing again are simply to start something. Anything. Even if we don't have a plan in mind. You wouldn't realize when ideas start coming in. I sat with a blank mind and just had the die and the coloured cardstock in front of me on the table. And during the process of making, I was getting more ideas that I could've used for making 3 more cards if only I had more time in my hands.But I had to stop at two.




I absolutely love the gorgeous colours included in the Sizzix cardstock sheets(#663007). There are all shades in pastel hues and I love pastels. 


Which card did you like more? I am slightly more biased towards the one with a white background. :)







































Are there any challenges going on in the blog land where I can link up my card? Please let me know if you know of any. :) 

Hugs!


I have something to share !

Hello everyone!

It's been really really long since I posted on this blog. My last post was on 14th of February 2018 and well, life has been quite busy in the past few months. And there's a good reason for that. Many of my craft and blogger friends might already be aware of the news but I wanted to share this with my blogger family that I recently became a mother to our second child, a sweet little baby girl, Hargun. We welcomed this new addition to our family on 7th of July this year and we're completely heads over heels in love with this new bundle of joy, who's four and a half months old now.  My elder daughter Jasnoor is delighted to have a little sister. I'm sharing a few pictures with you all.


That's Baby Hargun at 3 months old.


This was the first time we heard her giggle. And her first giggles were exclusive then for the favorite member of our family, her elder sister Jasnoor. 








Although my life at present is chaotic, challenging and busy with two of my active little monkeys, I feel extremely blessed and privileged to be their mother.

I try to find time to craft and at times I manage to make a decent card, somehow, I do not find time to share my cards here. Hopefully, I'll get back to regular crafting and blogging in a few days. I miss taking part in the challenges but most of all, I miss visiting the blogs and interacting with my blogger friends. How are you all doing and what are you up to? I would love to hear from you :)

Hugs !

Do you like cards which have little sceneries in them ? Or a story to tell? I really enjoy creating such sweet scenery cards which have a lot to say with less.

I made one such card for my better half [Yes,Valentine's day special ;)] using some cutest little dies from Sizzix Lifestyle. Here it is:-


The die set I used here is Sizzix thinlits die set- Spring Time, which contains 18 varied dies including some tine florals, rabbits, butterflies, bicycle, leaves, everything Spring !! Perfect for making CAS cards with sceneries.

Those tiny flowers are die cut using foam sheets in different colours and added a touch of pearls(my favorite embellishment) to these. Sentiment, as you might have guessed, is handwritten.

Products used :-

Sizzix Big Shot Plus Machine Only(white and gray)(#660020)

White cardstock- Iris sg

Valentine's Day Gift Box and Card

Monday, 12 February 2018

Hello, hello friends !

Today I'm sharing a last minute Valentine's day gifting idea using the newest Chapter 1 release by Sizzix Lifestyle.

I got this very cute heart shaped gift box known as Sizzix Thinlits- Heart Box, in my kit from the new release by Sizzix. I have never seen such a heart shaped die anywhere before, and I think it's hands down, my favorite box die ever. :)

Check out what I made using it :-



The tiny heart die cuts that were left behind after creating the front of the box were used to make a CAS card co-ordinating with the box.
