Some New Work

Hi,

Over past few days I was busy in exhibits but I regularly crafted a lot of things. The problem is that most of them are sold even before I could take pictures. But I was able to take pictures of some of my projects and here they are:


These cute little tickets were cut using Tim Holtz Ticket Die, then I stamped on them using different stamps and colored using Shinhan Touch Markers. They came out very cute.


For this card, I used embossed background and some quilled flowers along with leaves. This made the whole card look very lovely and at economical pricing too.


Some Tags I made using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Tim Holtz Stamps.


One tag which I made using clear embossing and perfect pearls.


This A4 Vintage theme photo frame was made on chipboard


This A4 Romance theme photo frame was made on chipboard


This A4 Vintage theme photo frame was made on chipboard

Apart from the above I have also made a lot of things which I will see if I could get pics of them.

With this post I also want to mention that due to lot of work in my store I am unable to update made products on Imaginationsonline.com , however I have got plently of stock. So if you find any product used in my projects and are interested then do mail me or message me. May be I have that one in stock.

This will be my last post of the year. Hope the coming year bring all the joy in your life. Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.

Dressform Notepad

I am in love with Tim Holtz Seewing Room die, it is very useful and can be used for various projects from 3D projects to cards and scrapbooks.

In previous post I showed you a Dressform 3D Stand , Today I will show you something I made yesterday, it is made with the help of Seewing Room die, chipboard and some papers. A cute Notepad which can be gifted to anyone.

Here are the pics:


Closeup of the notepad


I actually made around 10 Notepads but here I have taken pic of only 4 :)

Here is how to make these:

1. Cut one Dressform from the Seewing Room die on Chipboard
2. Cut one Dressform from the Seewing Room die on Whitecardstock
3. Cut one Dressform from the Seewing Room die on a pattern paper
4. Cut 25 Dressforms from the Seewing Room die from white copier paper (I used Century A4 Sheets)

Assemble the Notepad in following sequence:

1. White cardstock dressform     
2. 25 copier paper dressforms       (Glue only to the head area)
3. chipboard dressform
4. Paste the pattern paper dressform over the chipboard

Decorate as per your choice, I used some ribbons to create the Dress and then used Making Memories embellishments. The words are from Tim Holtz Chit Chat Stickers Pack (They are superb and most versatile stickers I have ever found).

If you make yours, then do share the link on this post.

Baby Card

Hi,

For past few days I was busy with many custom handmade invitation cards but never got time to take pics. Today I was able to take pic of one of my invitation card which I made for one of my customer. It was for his daughter's Naming ceremony.

Here is the pic:


I made this card using Silhouette Cameo, I used white cardstock with embossing to bring out a lovely and elegant look. I also cut some oval shapes on which I stamped You're Invited.

Isn't it cute, well I liked it very much myself and I hope you all like it too.

Have Fun

PS: During past whole month I made more than 300 custom handmade cards for different customers. I can't believe myself.

Happy Dhanteras and Diwali

Hello Crafter Friends,

First of all accept my wishes for the Dhanteras and Diwali. Now some chit chat, I wanted to share regarding my absence from blog world, updation of Imaginations website and lots more. Actually I was not absent totally but instead busy with lots of things at the same time, even as of today I have pending works which will take another 15 days to finish if I don't take any other load for next 2 weeks.

At first I wanted to share the word of my Physical store which is being started 3 months back in Shahjahanpur with some cool news but now it seems I don't have enough time to figure everything, won't be able to provide any candy at this time due to lack of time. Anyway, the store which I have opened is taking a lot of effort and time. First my half day goes into college where I teach and second half goes into the shop and related affairs. I have made a lot of things in past 2 months but couldn't post because most of time they got sold instantly. Apart from this I also spent a lot of time fulfilling online orders. The only reason why I am happy is that my customers like my services.

Apart from shop, online business and college I was also working on promotion of my business by putting stalls in various fairs, schools, taking workshops and also by introducing new products (which will soon be updated on the website). Recently I finished some custom card orders which included order from the DM (District Magistrate) of Shahjahanpur for her personal get together party. Even for some days I had to work till 2 am in night. But that was all fun experience. I am extremely sorry that due to all this I was unable to update my website with the new products which have arrived and can't provide you the deals which I have to offer. There are lots of new products like Tim Holtz Dies, Inkpads, Brads and more which I can offer at extremely great prices (a lot cheaper than what others may offer) but it will take some time before I could update them on website.

I will try to soon update the website but till then I am sorry, if you have any questions or any product inquiry, feel free to ask me because during whole time I have tried to keep my customers happy :)

Soon I will be back, till then happy crafting...

Tag & 3D work from Tim Holtz Dies

Hi,

Sorry for my recent absence from blog world. Actually I was too much busy in physical world doing workshops, teaching, expanding my business and in the mean time having fun with my kids. So the frequency of updation of this blog may be very low for some time. Anyway here are three of my projects which I made recently using Tim Holtz Dies, Distress inks and stamps. Here are they:


For this project I used Tim Holtz Sewing room die, journal tag and some flowers. I also used one old book for the die cuts. It came out beautiful. I learned to make it on youtube on someone's tutorial some time back but I didn't remember it exactly. As soon as I remember her name and video link I will update it here.


For this tag I used some variety of Tim Holtz Distress inks to blend and create a new color. For Stamping I used Tim Holtz Stamp. I used Prima Flowers and Eiffel Tower die of MFT. To get the cracked effect on the Eiffel Tower, I used crackel accent.



These flowers are made using Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and some Pattern papers from Stack 8 collection.

Recent Activity and A New Website for Photobooks

 Hi friends,

Sorry for so long inactivity, actually I had a lot of things in past few weeks like I was busy in College, setting up my store and then past one week I enjoyed rest as I was down with Viral Fever :)

Anyway, today I am posting to inform that over coming days you will witness some slow but drastic changes in our product lines and some new projects too. I will share them on this blog also.

In the meantime I would like to share one good website who are specialized in Photobooks, Calendars and Greeting Cards.

The website is : Photobook shop

I loved their templates for the photobooks and Calendars.

The only drawback I faced is that they do not have international shipping at the moment, they ship to any Address in Australia and also have express shipping option for Australia but they seems to have no options for International shipping.

They do Ship Internationally :)

For the above two cards, I used Washi Tape, Kenny K Digital Stamp and colored them using Shinhan Touch Marker

Creating Stickers with Epoxy

You might have seen Epoxy stickers from Basic Grey, Making Memories and different other brands. Though they are lovely but still they are very costly. A pack of 6 epoxy stickers cost around Rs. 300-500. Here is a very simple method to make it at home at One third of the cost. Here is what you will be able to make:


(Sorry for the alignment, it should be Best Friends :) )

Anyway, Here is the tutorial:

Items Required:
2. Some printout or pattern paper (there are lots of Bottlecap designs available online). Don't use Glossy Paper as it will damage the epoxy.
3. Scissor (you can also use 1" Circle Punch)
4. Double Sided Tape (the one which comes with backing)

Here are the steps:

1. Take the printout of the design you want to use
2. On the back side of the design, put the double sided tape (this will help us in making the sticker).
3. Cut the circle or punch out the design
4. Put the epoxy blank over the top of the design

Now its ready. Whenever you need to use it, simple peel off the backing paper of the double sided tape and fix it. It looks lovely on the cards/scrapbooks.

Tip: Even if you don't have the Epoxy blank and you want to make stickers then you can use the step 1-3 to make your own custom stickers.

The Epoxy blanks are excellent and I am in love with this product. I will soon show more work which have made using these stickers. Till then here is a sneak peak on how it looks :

Simple Embossed Card Tutorial

 Here is a very simple card which is made using three color embossing powders, one background stamp and a sentiment stamp. Distress ink is also used to color the sentiment strip.


Here are the steps to create this type card:

1. Create a base card with white color, for this card I used the dimension, 6" x 4.5"
2. Cut 6 square blocks of 1.5" each.
3. Choose your favorite background stamp, use Versamark Watermark inkpad or any other pigment inkpad to stamp on the squares.
4. Spread the Embossing Powder on the squares, use same color for 2 squares.
5. Using Double sided Foam tape, fix all the squares on the card creating a background.
6. Add a sentiment over the squares.
7. To give some extra look on the sentiment, use distress inkpad to color the edges.

The best thing for this card is that you can use any color combination of embossing powders you have, you can use any stamp and even any sentiment.

In this card I used: Hero Arts Flower Burst Pattern Background Stamp, Rich Red Embossing Powder, Blue Glass Embossing Powder, Gold Pearl Embossing Powder, Distress Inkpad - Worn Lipstick, Fiskars 4x8 Stamp Happy Birthday, and instead of Versamark Watermark inkpad I used Ranger Perfect medium inkpad (it is lot better than versamark and can also be used with pigment powders).

I will soon post another variation of this card as I am planning to make it today, it will be on dark color background without use of embossing powder. Lets see how it comes out.

Some Cards

You all might be missing me for some time, well actually I was extremely busy as right now admission process is going on in Accord Business College (where I teach), so I was busy in college and also I have started my store which took away the evening time from me. So I was left with little or no time which I spent with my kids :)

Anyway, my crafting did happened and these days I do have created some cards, lots of tags and some 3D items too. Most of the times I created stuff in my store which eventually got sold even before I could take snaps but luckily I took snaps for some of the cards I made, and here are the cards:


In the above card, I made pop-up Flowers for the inside. For card base I used Black Cardstock, For the internal flowers I used simple printer paper and colored them using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Tea Dye, For the cover I used Papers from Provocraft 6x12 Pack (will be added to store soon, its great value pack), The doily is a random purchase from ujjwal way back, For the Rosette I used Tim Holtz Rosette Die and added it as a layer on the doily. I used Doddle twine - Black color and some mulberry flowers. For the final decoration I used a punchout butterfly which I colored used Tim Holtz Crackle Paint - Fired Brick, I love the cracked effect of the paint.


 These are some random cards which I made over the past few days.




All the material used in above cards are available at Imaginations, though some might not be listed in the website but its available in the store.

May Blog Candy winner

 Hi,

First of all I am extremely sorry for delay in posting the winner. There were two reasons for the delay. Reason number one, I was extremely busy, in what? well in setting up my store. Its not an easy task to set up a physical store and that too when your workers don't know about the products. I have faced situations so many times when I need a certain item and I speak by its name and my employee doesn't understand me. I still have a lot of work to do to finish it and will soon upload pics here. That was reason number one. Reason number two was more important and actual, it was a simple fact that I simply forgot to post the winner ;)

That is why I have decided to offer one more prize apart from the candy, a prize which any one can redeem and crafter's will surely love. The prize is $10 gift certificate of Jessica Sprague , you must be wondering why I am offering her site's gift card. Well the reason is simple, I love her store because it is the only place from where I can purchase digital papers of Echo Park, yes Paper Packs of Echo park are available there, even dicontinued ones. and in $10 you can get around 2 full collections of Echo Park, thats great value if you have Inkjet printer at your home. You can print the papers and use on your projects, no more buying lots and lots of packs just because you liked 2-3 papers.

So without troubling further with my long post, I want to present you our two winners (I have kept only those for choosing who have completed all the required task and proper entries were given to those who completed the extra requirements).

The winner for Blog Candy, i.e. Making Memories Grab Bag is


Shalu from Allbyheart

Congratulations, kindly mail me your address so that I can send you the prize.


And now the second winner, for the Gift Card

and the winner is ...

CarlyJo of My Challenges

Congratulations, kindly register a free account at JessicaSprague and mail me your e-mail id, I will send you the gift certificate by email which you can redeem from the site.

Winner of May Weekly Candy 2

Hi,

First of all I am extremely sorry for such long break. Actually I was regularly online, fulfilling orders and also staying in touch with customers but due to two big problems the frequency was a little less. My net connection is not working properly for past 2 weeks and also due to some work at college I have to stay late in college. These two reasons made me a little bit busy so I almost left creating any thing new or updating blog. Today I got some time so I decided to finally update the winner of May Weekly Candy 2 and also something I created yesterday night.

First of all the Winner:

Comment No. 1: Dr. Sonia



Such a cute set my daughter would find this fun. Already your follower and had "liked" on facebook

Now Here is something I created yesterday:


For these Bookmarks/tags, I used Black Cardstock and for the background I used one Rubber stamp which was lying around. To add the metallic effect I used Perfect Pearls Pigment Powder Kit (Metallics). Then I added one scrap cardstock (I also distressed it) and using Inkadinkado Doodle Flower Stamp I cut the flowers then used Wild Honey Distress Ink to cover the white area and using double sided foam tape I fixed the flowers. The Bookmarks are ready. They can also be used as Tags.
