My Date With The Desktop Calender

A very Happy New Year to all of you!!

2013 has been pretty eventful for our blog as we started participating in craft challenges. We won quite a few of them. We met plenty of creative people and got to know them too. 

Personally, I want to specially thank everyone on the design team of Simply Create Too (a special thanks to Diane) for their love, care and affection for bringing out more creativity in me. It's an absolute pleasure and a delight to be a part of this wonderful design team. Besides thanks are due to all the blogs (C.R.A.F.T. Challenge Blog, Through The Craft Room Door Challenges, 4 Crafty Chicks Blog) that gave me an opportunity to showcase my work by inviting me as a Guest Designer on their blogs.

A very special thanks to my lil sissie Tanvi for being such a support for all the blogging that I do.. oops we do, and for bringing out the best in me.

I usher in the new year with a beautiful desktop calender that I received from Tanvi as a New Year gift.
I have already placed it on my desk and I must admit that everybody is loving it!!

Tag Fold Card (Order By Client)

Hello Everyone,

As I mentioned in my last post, that along with the box , I made a matching tag-fold card. So, here it is.....

I chose the same color combination, as I chose for the box i.e. shades of blue and some pink, white and brown. But, blue is surely dominating..The card has 14 folds, 28 leaflets in total (it was the client's bestie's 27th birthday..but I some times like to add one for the future)

The cover has some corrugated sheet to give the raw look, along with the lace and a big pink glitter rose flower. I have decorated the folds with punch craft and added glitter to each fold to give that bling effect. Also, the leaflets are transparent  with ribbons attached to pull them out and have 28 birthday wishes on them..(phewww..I had a hard time searching and writing 28 birthday wishes). But I think, the hard work was paid off and everybody liked it.

 Here is the picture of the box and the card together.

(Please excuse me for the blurred pictures)

Hope you guys like it too!!

Out Of The Box (Order By A Client)

Hello everyone..

I know I have been very irregular in posting on the blog these days. But as you know, holiday season is on. And so, have been completing some orders lately. Pictured below is one of my orders where my client wanted to gift something different to her bestie for her birthday. So, I made a tag-fold card (you will see it in my next post) and a matching box. The box as you can see in the pictures below is a combination of shades of blue, pink and white and so is the card.. 

The box has been decorated with three layers of card stock excluding the box cover and then I have embellished it with blue and pink flowers. I have used different kind of flowers and pulled them up together to form a bunch with dull green leaves and some twigs popping out from in between. The pink glitter fabric flower in the middle has been embossed by placing it a little higher. Also, the lamp post has been decorated with matching flowers and butterflies. The The pearls, laces and the silver rhinestones only add to the regal-royal look of the box. By the way pearls have been one of my all-time-favorite embellishments. 

And now, hold your breath to know whats inside the box. Taaa daaaa.. open the box, and you'll find a personalized message..with some personalized tags for the birthday girl!! The tags are attached to things which signify the birthday girl or their friendship. Like..one of the tags is a miniature bottle of thumsup which says 'Thumbsup to our friendship.. and so on..I distressed the tags in pink and green color and hand wrote the messages on the tags.

The best part of making it was that the birthday girl loved the gift and when she got to know that I made it, she sent me a message too. 

Hope you all like it too.
