Young Crafter's Unite Blog Hop



Today I am extremely happy to share with you that I am a part of Youngcrafter's Unite Blog Hop. This is my first blog hop and I am very much exited about it. I am also sure that there are possibilities of doing lot of mistakes :( (Forgive me if I made any).

Since my number is 2nd on this blog hop so you must have been brought from Marie's blog, if not then you can start this blog hop from her blog from the following link: legojenta.blogspot.com

Now the reason which makes me a young crafter, my age!!!! well just joking, though I am 27 but still I am not too young in terms of age. I am a young crafter because I caught this hobby only 3 years back and I am quite new to this hobby compared to all the creative crafters out there. So I am young and inexperienced in this field.

My Latest Project with my fav. stuffs:

First of all I want to share my fav. crafting stuffs, yes stuffs as I like more than one item. I love my Silhouette SD Machine, Martha Stewart Punches, My Steadler 48 Water Based Color Pencils, My Small Collection of Rubber Stamps and my latest purchase YourStory 12x12 Binder and Laminator. I love them all and try to use everything in my projects. I must admit that yourstory binder is a great machine and is worth every bucks spent on it. So Let me first present my latest project :

A Scrapbook for my friend's daughter (I missed her birthday so I will give it as a gift).

The Cover of the Scrapbook
 

I made the above cover using two 8.3 X 8.3 sheets then joined them and used my glue gun to put some glue in the spine area (I do not wanted to use readymade covers hence I made this custom one).

Pic of my glue gun and also how I added glue in the spine

Here are the Sheets Unbinded :

Binding using YourStory:
Binding Process, it takes less than 2 minutes to bind. So easy

Inside Pages of the Scrapbook

The Tags which I used to decorate the book (They are only a small part of the total tags used)
The Circle tags are Digital Stamps of sliekje which I printed black and white and then cut using Silhouette SD. I colored them using my Steadler Colored Pencils. The other tags are cut using Silhouette SD. The butterflies are cut from glossy paper using Martha Stewart's Butterfly Paper Punch.

I also used Martha Stewart Alphabet Punch to create this beautiful name of the sweet girl Ananya.

I also tried to create a video but unfortunetly my video shooting skills are less than a small kid so I skipped the Video. I hope these pics are good enough to show how the scrapbook looks. Thats all for my todays project.


My Fav. Project from past: My fav. project from past would definetly the Kirigami card of Notre Dame Cathedral which I made from the pattern of Yee. The cutting was very much intrinsic and I did all with my hands using Surgical Knife (I didn't have X-Acto Knife). It took my more than 15 days to cut every piece but the result was so beautiful that everyone who saw it asked me to make one for him, but it was not very easy so I politely refused everyone.

Here is the pic of the Kirigami Popup Card of Notre Dame Cathedral
